Obama Faces Backlash Over New Corporate Powers In Secret Trade Deal

Obama Faces Backlash Over New Corporate Powers In Secret Trade Deal

“I tend to agree that NAFTA and globalization has had an ill effect. I said that at the time and was disappointed in the Clinton Administration ratifying NAFTA. After all this time I still don't think it was the right thing. I think a more cohesive argument can be made about it than "Enjoy your foreign crap while standing in the welfare line."”

“That was my exact thoughts when reading this. I came away from the headline combine with that quote thinking, "What am I supposed to do with this?"”

“Thank you! I am glad I am not. That small paragraph is somehow supposed to absolve the HP of any responsibility regarding the content. The comments they elicit with such irresponsible reporting speaks volumes. It begs the question as to HP's intent.”

“I don't understand what to do with such an inflammatory article that states, almost in passing: "HuffPost was unable to determine which of the 11 non-U.S. nations involved in the talks was responsible for the memo.

'These are not U.S. documents and we have no idea of their authorship or authenticity,' a spokesman for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative said. 'Some elements in them are outdated, others totally inaccurate.' The spokesman declined to specify which parts were outdated or inaccurate."

HuffPo appears to take these documents at face value and assumes they are either accurate or from the US. So if the spokeman's contention is correct, what does that say about the rest of the article? If the spokesman is not correct, why throw this in there or why throw it in there without more to contradict it?”

“Yeah, I'll agree to that. She wasn't right with regards to acting or accent. Even when she'd open up her big notes, she sang too twangy and not like the good proper Maria Von Trapp”

“Okay they bought whatever it was. We got the original Broadway cast with Mary Martin and we got the soundtrack with Julie Andrews. I was a kid the last time we were able to buy it, so excuse me for not knowing the phenomenol difference.”

“What. a. mess. There are certain films which should not be touched, redone etc. The Sound of Music is one of them. The original Broadway play was with Mary Martin (who was wonderful). I was too young to see it but my family always bought the soundtrack immediately upon exiting a play (there were SO many record stores around the theaters...loved it!) We had both soundtracks as my family were also huge Julie Andrews fans (not just her soundtracks but her non-movie albums which were beautiful.) For the "remake" with Carrie Underwood, I have no idea what i was reacting to other than: what. a. mess. It was wrong. Just wrong.”

Deeliberate on Dec 6, 2013 at 11:54:23

“You do know that they performed the actual, original play last night, right? It was not the movie version "redone". The movie changed the play, including adding and changing scenes and adding and deleting songs. You should go to the theater sometime.”

Helena5 2 on Dec 6, 2013 at 11:18:17

“When you left a theater, you went to buy an "original Broadway cast" recording, not a "soundtrack." "Soundtrack" only refers to movies. There is a very important difference between the two.”

RDX on Dec 6, 2013 at 11:12:28

“I think the fact that it was done live with sets would make it more like a homage to the original play, not the film. We have 'sound of music' theatre reproductions all the time so I don't think this was such a bad thing.”

KRS1961 on Dec 6, 2013 at 10:44:56

“I agree. I couldn't sit through it. I was willing to sacrifice "Scandal" to watch this broadcast, but I lasted about an hour. It was painful and embarassing to watch. Ms. Underwood is a successful country singer. Acting, however, is not her forte. And the kids? Much older than the ages they were portraying. I mean, the whole thing was a mess. Very disappointing. I'm old enough to remember the television broadcasts of "Peter Pan" ( Mary Martin ) and Oscar and Hammerstein's "Cinderella" ( Lesley Ann Warren. ) Now THOSE television musical productions were class-A and they didn't have the amazing sets back then. It was all talent.”

“We refuse to allow our citizens to live happy and healthy lives. That's simply preposterous! We want to send them off to foreign wars to die and have hurricanes of monstrous proportions to wipe them out. We want our taxes to pay for the ill effects of climate change and unnecessary defense spending...not health care! What is this "help your constituents in whatever way you can" thing that the Obama administration is forcing down or throats? We refuse!”

Melissa McCarthy's Elle Cover Backlash Prompts Statement From The Magazine

Melissa McCarthy's Elle Cover Backlash Prompts Statement From The Magazine

Commented Oct 18, 2013 at 06:34:29 in Style

“I love Melissa McCarthy and if she's okay with it, I'm okay with it though I wish they had outfitted her in more stylish clothing instead of a shapeless coat. She is a beautiful woman but instead of insisting on more skin for her, maybe less skin for the others! While not true of Elle models, too many women think "muffin top" is somehow attractive. I think that dressing for your body type is a goal even if every designer designs for Kate Moss. My daughter is on the slender side, but does sport muffin top because she wears pants that push everything up and over. She thinks that having tight clothing is good even though it looks dreadful. The label can't compensate for what doesn't look good on you. Your clothes should accentuate the positive and play down the negative. I had a friend who was tall with a Melissa McCarthy body type and, like Melissa, she had a gorgeous face and beautiful hair. She wore beautiful flowing skirts, beautiful silk blouses and accessorized well. She looked stunning and never "covered" up or shapeless. If you put her next to a woman with a Reese Witherspoon body type who was outfitted in tight clothes that failed to consider her shape, the larger woman would look undeniably more attractive. Melissa is a very graceful and charming person and I would have liked to have seen more shapely clothes on her instead of the coat.”

“The insurance companies DO NOT like Obamacare as it will reign in their profits and keep them from denying services. They don't like it.

And it's "loser," not "looser."”

“thank, for the spelling check. I have dyslexia very bad and am disables 67% hands and fingers do not work very good. The insurance companies will be mandated by the government to be paid 60% of every bill guaranteed by USA TAX PAYERS. They will be able to raise the price every year up to 10% without oversight. They will be making more money than they do now. All the 40% that the workers have to pay will still break them and send them to bankruptcy court. Unpaid bills will be added to the 80% that the insurance has to meet to keep from refunding you payments as cost of doing business. Its a win win for them, you do not really see them fighting this change... If so their would be Television and Radio adds ever two minuets like during election time.”
