Expert: 'Fine' Isn't Good Enough For Plus-Size Women Anymore

Expert: 'Fine' Isn't Good Enough For Plus-Size Women Anymore

Commented Oct 28, 2013 at 15:07:11 in Style

“Now the trick is also realizing that the population is getting older. So, retailers need to get a clue about the OLDER, PLUS-SIZE shopper. Older hefty ladies want sleeves below the elbow, NO plunging necklines, longer skirts, longer comfortable tunic tops.

The dollars are waiting to be spent, retailers. Get the clothes we want.”

“When big prosecutors are chasing a high-profile case, take a look around at the little people who get threatened and sometimes, have their lives ruined by these prosecutors, in order to get them to rat out the real target.

As one example, look at the acquaintances and co-workers of Bill Clinton, when he was being persecuted (sic) in the Whitewater investigation, and also the Monica Lewinsky investigation. What you see is shameful harassment, financial ruin, and sometimes, imprisonment of ordinary people.”

“Now THIS is what tasers are supposed to be for: situations where you would otherwise have to shoot the person. Instead, they use tasers for situations where they would otherwise talk the person down. And then they STILL shoot people.”

CojoinednessBrasserie on May 30, 2012 at 20:36:14

“oh HELL no.. a taser is not meant to replace a gun but provide a nonlethal alternative in some situations where the person might be amenable to control but is not presenting a major threat. no way in HELL would a guy in this state be approached by an officer using a taser.. he might respond by pulling the tines out and running right at him. it might also work.. but good luck finding a cop who would have taken that chance. this is what he has a gun for. a man at full strength with hostile harmful intent ...... shoot to kill and hope that at least subdues him..”

FaceTheTruth00 on May 30, 2012 at 18:28:23

“very good question. why didn't he have a tazer on him? miami cops don't have them? or maybe the cop was just so freaked out that he shot him. i don't know if anyone can judge this officer.”

“You have to be close to a person in order to taser them. Would you want to get close to a man-wolf who is actively eating the face off another person? The cop also had no backup.”
