“Are you serious? I like both girls and I think Britney has been through and deserves another chance (as has Demi), and her songs are catchy, but are you seriously saying that Britney is a better singer (or a better artist) than Demi? That's just ridiculous. Demi rights a lot of her own music, she actually plays an instrument and she sings A LOT better than Britney. Also, Demi's 'issues' are nothing compared to what Britney has been up to...seriously.”

“I am as serious as a heart attack. I was a professional performer for many years, and Demi may get to the level of Britney, but she's not there yet. Britney is the consumate entertainer. Demi may write her own music AND play an instrument, but she certainly is NOT a better singer than Britney.
Britney has come back from the abyss,and I will admit to having prayed for her for a long time. I wish Demi well, but she is very young yet, and has time to grow. I am glad that she has such a loyal fan as you.”
“Double jeopardy says A PERSON can't be tried twice for the same crime. This book alleges the SON was the culprit, NOT O.J...therefore, this would not be not double jeopardy if the son were to be charged. The rule applies to people, not the crime. Not sure where you're logic was going on this statement.”
“What your argument is insinuating is completely different from financially supporting a legal organization. What you mention is a constitutional issue, violating the 1st amendment by not allowing someone into a place of business...you really should read the constitution...chick-fil-a is not banning anyone from being or buying anything in their restaurants, they merely support a legal organization...which by law, they are constitutionally allowed to do... is not the same thing as having a place like you mentioned.”

“Of course you, Stephanie Laws, took the point out of this. Obviously I meant "strongly prefer to support Caucasians and give money to anti-minority groups". Does that make it better? You're going to make a great PTA mom some day.”
“I'm sorry...did you not read the entire article? Please read following:
"The University does not have a direct relationship with Chick-Fil-A," Lentz told HuffPost. "ARAMARK is the University’s restaurant vendor and Chick-Fil-A is licensed by ARAMARK to lease a restaurant on NYU’s Greenwich Village campus."
Therefore, you have no argument.”

“So if I hire a lawn care company to take care of my apartment complex's landscaping, and their employees rape the children of said community, do I not have a responsibility to find a new company to trim my shrubs?”
“Something about this story seems suspicious. Why would a person 'smoking in bed' throw the cigarette on the bed? No one is that stupid to think that a burning cigarette will not catch fire. Then when it caught fire, who decides to drag the bed through the house? WITH A BABY IN THE HOUSE! Also, why jump out the window instead of gathering everyone and getting out the door? This sounds like someone was trying to commit arson and probably murder. Nothing that this guy did sounds logical to me.”

“It is possble that the smoker fell asleep with the cigarette still lit, when I was a child my brother who dranked heavily almost burned our house down on numerous occasions, by going to bed while he was smoking and we would wake -up with the smell of clothes or something burning and the house would be covered with white smoke and guess what? we tried to drag the mattress outside to put it out. We survived through all of that and I was able to laugh a little at seeing a stack of burnt mattresses in my back yard withg a big hole in the middle.”

“lol lol lol Why would people step over a dying man to get to an item on sale? Why would people go hiking in a war zone on the Iranian border? Why would people send their kids to college in Egypt where thousands are slaughtered daily in a revolution? Why would someone go to college in a corrupt 3rd world country like Itally? Why would a man on death row call the governor who saved his life a sissy? Why would a Governor named Brownback punish a kid in highshool for saying his political policies "suck" then is surprised he'll probably lose the next election for his act of arrogant stupidity? People with reasonable intellect can commit acts of extreme stupidity on any given day. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but we are all very capable of committing sometimes comical as well as more serious acts of unbelievably stupid acts.”

“They probably thought they put the cigarette out in an ashtray or something, and then were too lazy to dispose of it properly, so they just threw it on the bed. Then, their first response to the fire was, "water!" and instead of doing the smart thing like using blankets to smother the fire or even running to get some water, they thought they could take the mattress to the water. Also, it clearly says in the article that the family was trapped inside, so their escape route was blocked off, which was why the man jumped out of the window.
Stupid, yes. Arson and murder? Probably not.”

“you could have a point, but I personlly think that if your going to smoke in the house where children live, your crazy and don't really care about the children. If you smoke and you have children in the house, GO OUTSIDE! Second hand smoke is so dangerous to children, as their lungs are still developing, and no I don't smoke, but I have friends that do, but they don't smoke around their children.”

“"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
This quote is on "Our" Statue of Liberty...remember we were all once refugees...”
“...This may clear things up a little for you. The below is an excerpt from the article
"Police Inspector Todd Milburn said the mother dropped off her child at the house and spoke with someone there. As she was leaving, she saw a man near the house on foot, and something about him raised her suspicions.
"There was some reason for her to call back to the home," Milburn said.
The woman called the day care and was talking to someone at the house when the line went dead, Milburn said. She returned to the home and found three people had been shot."
“Although this sentiment might provide a small sense of justice, all this would really do would be to return hate for hate...and then we would be no better than Dedmon. I do not believe that Dedmon was truly sorry for his actions (as evidence proved that it was premeditated and a true Christian family would NOT raise such a son to act in those manners) and I believe his actions were evil and horrific. However, in order to rise above the ignorant attitude that color, somehow, makes a person less of a human being, there must first be a change in the ideology that any life is flippantly expendable. An eye for an eye only creates a blind world, as the proverb says. I find it humbling that the family of Anderson requested Dedmon not get the death penalty, which is exactly the kind of attitude that will change our world for the better. I am not apposed to the death penalty in certain situations (and this one would certainly qualify for me) but what a testament to the Anderson family!”

“no, no It's not hate for hate yet, it is very unfair to keep killing African American just for fun, now if he gets ran over just for fun, just like that man did then it would be equal. I hope that every time he close his eyes to try and fall asleep that picture of him running over that poor man plays over and over and over in his head until he cracks up now that's justice. If he can sit there and plan on how he was going to run over somebody, please he meant to do. People are getting sick and tired of this let's just kill an African American just for fun mess. Now you said "An eye for an eye only creates a blind world" no, an eye for an eye creates an empty world, think about this for a minute if everybody was blind and no one could see the color of your skin, then what would they pick on human life about then?”
“Kids are being injured in their homes more often because parents aren't watching them anymore, not because houses have all of the sudden become death traps. Seems some parents stick their children in front of a TV or a video game and expect them to entertain themselves...then the parent(s) do house work, homework, brought-home-work or a mixture of the three, then they are amazed when their kid gets hurt. People bumper-proof their houses because they don't want to take the responsibility of actually watching their children or teaching them 'not to touch that'. This is how most children are lost in department stores...the parent is too busy shopping to notice their child isn't with them. Instead of teaching children safety rules and boundaries from an early age, parents shield their children from everything to save time and energy. Also, most parenting is left up to one adult in the house...which causes that parent to be worn out all the time, which is probably another reason they shield their children from everything. The article is right on the money about not making children the king of the house and teaching them morals, boundaries and safety rules. The point of raising children is to get them to a place where they can make smart, safe decisions on their own...not to shield them from life and then say "alright, you do it all on your own now!" How stupid.”

“I agree, it is much better to teach them that knives are sharp to stay away, a black surface in the sun in going to be hot so don't walk on it with bare feet and you can not stick things in the light socket. If they just learn that the world is safe so do as you please then they are sure to get hurt as adults. There are a few exceptions that have been life savers for kids such as car seats. I adopted my daughter and the only safety items I have in my house are locks under the kitchen sink, and that was because the state required it. The outlet covers only attracted her to them and she was constantly removing them. We used to call knives owies and so she has just always known not to touch them. I do admit that one time she plugged my iPod headphones into the outlet and got a little shock (probably no more then a static shock from the rug). Let me tell you she never goes near the outlets anymore, she has learned cause and effect.”
“I am ashamed of most of the comments on this board. Seems more people are just green with envy over her accomplishments. She has rightfully earned a BA in History, Master's in Philosophy and Master's in Public Health. She is currently working on a Doctorate...seems she is OVER qualified to be on tv, but she chooses to use her name for a good cause. Why would anyone begrudge a person who is obviously smart and wants to do something good for her community? It seems so immature and selfish to hate someone simply because she has a job in the public eye. More people need to have an attitude of giving, like Chelsea, instead of throwing stones. Jealousy is an ugly thing and using words to try and diminish a person's worth is ignorant and is considered to be the act of a bully. Shame on you!”

“She had every advantage imaginable I would hope she would do something. However perhaps it could have been on the whites who are unemployeed we already have a black president looking out for the discrimated against blacks without jobs. They never pay child support. Now they are no longer the minority but they still have the advantages written into law 50 + years ago. Enough poor little black boy what about a non racial story for a change”

“You have GOT to be kidding me! Not EVERYTHING is race based...come on. Race is SO not the issue here... The killer of this poor woman was caught and convicted...Amanda Knox and Raffaela Sollecito need to be let go. Period.”
cadreamer7 on Sep 24, 2011 at 17:18:23
“Sorry race is an issue here. She lied to get an innocent black man arrested. Not something an innocent person usually does.”
“I completely agree! I can't understand why this circus has gone on so long. They caught and convicted the killer...why do they even have the other two in custody, much less on trial?? The only evidence they found was evidence that she actually lived in the apartment with the victim and that her boyfriend was in the apartment from time to time...it's ridiculous that this trial has gone on at all. This is blood lust by the prosecution.”

“The original submission of the DNA evidence on the knife ... the knife was found at Sollecito's flat, not at Knox's and Kercher's flat.
Meredith's DNA was on the blade of the knife, and Knox's DNA on the handle. Meredith had never been to Sollecito's apartment.”
“You make good points, but there are already laws that protect people from being bullied. It's call harassment. It should be reinforced in the school system though...and it should pertain to all children, not just gay children. Kids have been bullied for many year for all kinds of reasons...it's not a new thing and gay kids are not the only kids that are bullied in school.”
