“If she is a citizen, I would sue for discrimination. I am sure that she can find a lawyer to take the case, and Apple would settle. Hell, make it a class action suit. I am sure there are other instances of this happening.”

“Apple cannot be sued as it is upholding the law. She must have let it be know the phone would be sent to Iran.”

“Oh please! Stop acting like the healthcare professionals here in the U.S. are any better. The only difference is that they keep you doped up on meds until you die and that's if you can even afford healthcare. Otherwise, you're just turned away. Mistakes happen everywhere, but I love how you people take this one incidence to hop on your soapboax about medical care in Brazil when your own healthcare system is in shambles.”

“I agree with the previous poster, I would absolutely take this up with a REAL court and file a claim for unjust and excessive punishment. 20 hours, really? Some criminals don't get 20 hours of community service. They were trying to make an example of him BUT I would make an example of them. He has no control over the actions of others, and therefore, not responsible for the acts caused by them.”

“New RACIST AGENDA 2012: Hit back against anyone who so much as brings up a claim of racial insensitivity. "Playing the race card" is still a favorite rhetorical device employed by those on the right who try to silence any discussion of racial issues or whenever a whisper of critical race theory arises. We're on to you and it won't work!”

drj816 on Apr 4, 2012 at 10:50:13

“And by people "Playing the race card" every time someone that is white in authority does their job against someone of color just DESENSITIZES everyone to racial issues when a TRUE racial issue occurs. Did you ever hear the fable "the boy who cried wolf?"”

“Actually, there are more white people reaping the benefit of welfare. Check the governments numbers. You're the majority (for now) and the majority of those utilizing the freebies. I am sure Archie Bunker was a great role model for your dad, I see he passed his intelligence on to you. /sarc”

“Do you know anything about what the percentage is of whites on welfare ,compared to minorities ,might be? Check the percentage of each group,and you will see who's milking the system.”

“Your numbers are all wrong. Let me put it this way, lets say you have 10,000 cows in a field, and 2000 of them are eating grain, Then in another field you have 2000 cows and only 1000 of them are eating grain, which cows are eating the most grain?

Thats the reason why you can spin it and say whites are getting more welfare. But the per capita numbers are still showing whites don't collect as much welfare. Ever think much?”

Soda's Health Risks: How Bad Is It Really?

Commented Mar 16, 2012 at 08:44:08 in Healthy Living

“Ok some of you people in the comments are not very logical. Arguing about a researchers intentions on soda no less is just moronic. A drink that is basically SUGAR WATER. So let's take a look:

High fructose corn syrup, sugar, colorings, phosphoric acid, caffeine, citric acid and natural flavors.

Yummy, sounds like everything your body needs in order to survive, huh? If it doesn't aid your body in regeneration then you probably shouldn't drink it. Of course you have the complete loons who don't want to hear it. They want their bloody steaks, sugary sodas, glazed donuts, and greasy bacon double chesseburgers and then want YOU to feel bad when they get cancer. Go jump in a lake! Remember when you're getting those chemo shots that you were warned.”

“"Very positive reviews all around; most agreed that the tacos had been improved by the extra salt and savoriness of the Doritos shell."

Gotta love that delicious extra salt. Now only if the food scientists could figure out a way to quell that pesky hyper-tension problem and maybe we could eat our processed taco shells drenched in fake powdered cheese in peace without fear of a stroke.”

“Who cares, it's a flag, a piece of material. Get over it. It means absolutely nothing at the end of the day. Really, a flag. Just like people who walk around with a cross around their necks. Means nothing.”

“By your twisted reasoning the Magna Carta, Emancipation Proclamation, US Constitution, your birth certificate and Presidet Obama's birth certificate are pieces of material. At the end of your day, are these meaningless?

National Flags, without exception, are potent symbols of national identity. Every embassy in the world flies one. I don't know if President Obama knew about this but his initial reaction would be a telling moment should it ever be be known.

Regardless, this is offensive to many Americans, not just veterans. It is not up to you to determine what is or is not offensive to me or any other. That the Florida DMC and you want to minimize the event shows how much you have sold out.”
