PETA's New

PETA's New "Save The Whales" Billboard Takes Aim At Fat Women (UPDATED)

Commented Aug 17, 2009 at 14:50:10 in Green

“I don't think it's offensive at all. Obesity is a serious health issue in this country. For most of us, weight gain is driven by the kinds and the amount of food we put into our own mouths over a period of time. No one gains that much weight overnight. Individual needs to take ownership of the problem. I have been a vegetarian for 15 years and vegan for 3. I am 45 years od and weigh the same as in high school. I can attest to the truth of PETA's message.”

“I was going to respond to you, but then I realized that you would never pay attention to a real argument because you are blinded by an anorexic ideology.”

“I have been vegan for the last 8 years, and I weigh more than ever! Just because something works for you, does not validate it as fact.”

“And you don't have a problem with the sexism of the ad? And you are ok with the huge amount of animal PETA kills?”

“and apparently your brain weighs exactly the same as it did at the height of your intelligence - in hight school”

“I weigh as much as I did in high school, also. 115 pounds.( 30 years ago).
I am blessed with a very fast metabolism. I eat horribly. Sugar, high fat, high cholesterol food is my mothers milk.
Just as mine is very fast, I have no doubt some people have a very slow metabolism.
I know "fat" people who eat less than I do.
I just don't think it's fair to judge other people when you don't know their circumstances.”

“Absolutely fabulous. She is pretty and the candle, music did create and enhance the whole experience. But then again, so what? Is this not what the arts is supposed to do? The drawing is fabulous and the transformation demonstrated in front of our eyes gives us a peak into the working of an artistic mind. I love it.”

“"Bill is the reason I have HBO." So glad that I am not alone in this.”

“Frankly, I think his show is tedious, poorly researched, biased, and more than often wrong. Maher's focus is on ridiculing his political opponents rather than debating them, which is the lowest form of humor.

Just because you have a microphone and a camera does not make you profound nor insightful. Sort of a liberal version of Michael Savage, albeit with far less research performed.

No, Maher does not deserve an Emmy any more than Howard Stern does for "Butt Bongo Fiesta".”

“A much better way to handle this then the comment he made during the press conference. A commentator on the gates incident put it very well. It goes something like: don't treat this like a racial profiling poster child; treat it like a learning lesson.”

naturallight on Jul 24, 2009 at 16:33:13

“I liked Dr. Gates comment:

"There are a million black men in jail and I just joined them."

Otherwise it seems a selfish self centered MESS.

“I think the population this article is about is not more appropriately described as high-achievers. Sure, high achievers are probably smart people, but the chanllenges the author describe are not because they are smart; it's more like how they were socialized and conditioned. I think the real smart people can better recognize the deficiency in themselves and more likely to seek solution to correct this.”

“I voted in northern California. 15 mins was all it took. However, the machine jammed only after recording 20 votes. I heard the voting machine rep said she'll have to swapped the machine later and asked us to leave our balots in the collection bin. I asked if there is a way to verify how I voted, she said no. Why would we EVER use a voting machine that can not verify its result is just beyond me. It seem like the self-serve check-out machine at the supermarket is more reliable than these voting machine.”

“In case you haven't heard this joke.

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75-year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Sarah Palin and her bid to be a heartbeat away from being President .The old rancher said, ' Well, ya know, Palin is a post turtle.'Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.The old rancher said, ' When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle.'

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain. You know she didn't get up there by herself, she doesn't belong up there, she doesn't know what to do while she is up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with.'”

“Her winking and the so-called folksy style came across cheap to me. I am a woman, and I am offended by her attempt to use her gender to gain some edge. She definitely has little substance and is playing out of her league. A post turtle indeed.”
