Bristol Palin Is All About The White Mini Dress (PHOTOS, POLL)

Commented May 4, 2011 at 13:30:28 in Style

“NOSE JOB.

But seriously.

This is what Snooki would look like if she stopped tanning.”

Marmaine on May 4, 2011 at 13:49:58

“Snooki is exactly what I thought, too - Bristol's "new & improved" chin is painful to look at... how could she think so little of herself to take such a drastic step?
And those shoes are beyond tacky - they look absolutely ridiculous with both dresses.
All that money and so little taste - very very sad...”

“Most men in American are circ'd. Also, if you are Muslim you are under the same proscription to circ your son.

Technically, the Constitution does not allow for women to be President. Most of the gender language in the document is neutral, but in the portion regarding what makes a person qualified to be president, the founders used "he" and "him". Sorry Sarah!”

“Actually, two of her closest and most trusted Objectivism followers, one who ran her little newsletter, were lambasted in the papers by her after they attempted to interpret Objectivism in a slightly way than her.

She slandered them up and down, personally and professionally, because they dared to think on their own.

She's was a quack.”

Muslim Women Face Choices As France's Veil Ban Looms

Muslim Women Face Choices As France's Veil Ban Looms

Commented Apr 6, 2011 at 13:11:44 in Religion

“No, I got your point. You summed it up with your inaccurate comparison between a habit and a veil. There are wholly different pieces of clothing. One covers your head and the other covers your face.

The French are not attacking one group, they are outline the rules one must abide by to partake in civilized society. You cannot wander around hidden. It's more of a sad commentary that they have to SAY that before it's acknowledged as the "price" one pays for living in society.

Secondly, you're making an assumption that simply because women live in an Arab nation, they wear a veil. That's incorrect, and uneducated. Most women in Egypt never wore a veil. The recent increase of women wearing a hijab (which is a head covering similar to a nun's head piece) is a modern development that comes not from religion or anything of the sort. Most women in Iran don't either. They wear a hijab. No veils.”

Sane Centrist on Apr 6, 2011 at 14:15:22

“One last attempt and I apologize if my original statement was misleading or unclear.

Here’s what I’m trying to say……………..

A lot of people on this forum have written that women wearing the full Veil, Burqa, Hijab or whatever it’s called that only shows their eyes shouldn’t - because if France says they don’t want it, then the women should respect that and not wear such attire.

My point is: nuns wear habit’s (and I’m fully aware that it doesn’t cover their entire face exposing their eyes only).

But it’s still a form of “head covering”, it’s still a form of religious expression, it’s still a symbol of expressing ones faith and religion, regardless of whether it covers their entire face or not.

No, all women in Arab nations do not wear the full veil, but if we grew up in one of those nations, we would be a lot more accustomed to it because while all women might not wear the garment, many do.

You can insult me all night long, but the bottom line is that these women are being asked to do something that other women of other faiths aren’t being asked to do, and once again Muslims seem to be singled out as the group that needs to convert their traditions or ways to make others feel comfortable.

That’s what this is really all about, one group of people not being “comfortable” with another enough to accept them the way they are………..”

“It's about abiding by the rules of civil society.
A nun's habit does not obscure her face.

A hijab (which is strictly a head covering) is not included in this ban. It's about forcing people who wish to participate in French society to show their face.

And what do you mean "If I had been raised in a predominan­tly Muslim faith based practicing country obviously it wouldn’t affect me one way or the other."
A full veil, and even the hijab, are MODERN ideas. They are not requirements from the Qur'an nor are the requirements from any Hadiths. The directive is to dress modestly. Not wear a sheet.”

Sane Centrist on Apr 6, 2011 at 12:45:46

“You missed my point......

What I meant was that if I grew up in ....say Iran and saw women dressed that way everyday, I would not think a thing about it one way or the other.

It doesn't bother me to see them with the full garb, I'm just not very used to it.

Understand now or do you still feel the need to belittle me.............?”

“They broke it down quite nicely - how the Times used yellow journalism to misconstrue "facts" and then used an educated non-GE employee to explain how GE's tax structure works, etc etc.

I know it's hard, but ProPublica doesn't use sensationalism to sell stories. It may make them appear at time weak, or lacking in detail, but they are ALWAYS factual and well researched.”

“Ah yes, it was throwing away my hard earned money to actually have two teeth placed in my mouth that genetics denied me... Maybe if you stepped up from fillings and did other work for other people who need (yes NEED) more than just a good cleaning twice a year, you would have a different opinion.”

“I 1000% disagree. Are you the insurance-god who deemed my need for teeth (that I have been missing since I was a zygote conglomeration of cells) as "cosmetic" simply because the cost was too high? And when promptly told that "having a genetic mutation that makes these teeth non-existent doesn't make this a cosmetic issue," decided it was a pre-existing condition and wouldn't cover even a *portion* of the cost?

Ah yes.. you must be.”

“As having dealt with serious dental issues (derived from a genetic condition, and thus considered "pre existing" by the insurance gods) I can say flat out that I'd rather have no dental insurance and bargain for a cheaper bill with the almighty cash.

This is particularly easy in NYC and the Tri-State area, but if you don't have a couple hundred buck to save a month for a seriously costly procedure, or braces, (because we aren't just talking about cleanings here), then you are SOL.”

“I challenge your post against my degree in Religious Studies. I think I'll win.”

main creek street on Mar 23, 2011 at 13:27:54

“You tout a degree yet fail to provide a source that backs up your claim; that is not sound academic behavior.

here is a doctoral dissertation on the subject:

Hadley, J.M. (2000) The cult of Asherah in Ancient Israel and Judah. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge university press. ISBN: 0521662354

Typically people who have degrees are silent about their degrees and just present the sources they found in their research while obtaining that degree.
In other words, it is not a contest to match degrees, it is about showing research and evidence that backs up your claims.”
