“Little "Messie" is cute, but I wonder how he's going to like his what his friends do to his name and the fact that his so-called parents are fighting over his paternity. Poor kid--what a way to start life.”

“The article never stated they were debating or disputing paternity, but whose last name would the child carry! I feel sorry for judgemental people like yourself!”
“I remember vividly what I was doing when I heard that a plane had crashed into one of the World Trade Towers. I was getting ready to go to work when I heard the news, and I thought some hotshot pilot in a private plane, who thought he was a great pilot, slammed into the Tower--idiot! I wondered how badly he was hurt, never thinking that his plane actually penetrated the building. I went off to work, not yet hearing of the crash into the second tower, and not knowing the extent of the first crash. Of course, we did little work at the office, watching TV, listening to the radio and making phone calls. I and just about everyone I knew was concerned about a friend or relative who worked in one of the Towers. I always felt and still do feel that September 11th should be a National Holiday; it's certainly more meaningful to most of us than Labor Day.”

“You know, I was thinking the same thing you were thinking when I first glanced at the TV screen. Of course, the plane looked small on TV, so I just assumed it was a private plane.”
“I've expressed my feelings to NBC about the revolving door of female co-hosts on theToday Show--that instead of changing the females, NBC should take a good hard look at Matt Lauer and make changes there. Ann Curry projected a very pleasing, intelligent manner, and if her mode of attire did not please the executives of NBC all they had to do was hire a stylist to help Ann. Good bye Today Show!”
“I thought we had freedom of religion and freedom of speech in this country. If the Salvation Army believes that the LGBT lifestyle is against its religion, so be it. Just as the LGBT chooses to speak out against the SA's religious beliefs and practices, so, too, the SA can choose whomever they wish to use their funds to support. By the same token, I don't want anyone telling me what organizations I should donate to. The LGBT population is significant enough to support its own charities, so why doesn't it do so.”
Razpooten on Nov 27, 2011 at 16:39:58
“We do, and the SA does not only express an opinion they lobby to deprive the GLBT of civil rights.”
Clozure on Nov 27, 2011 at 16:04:16
“"So why doesn't it do so." Umm... first, we do support gay charities, and non-sexual related charities.... and surprise surprise, some of us even support Salvation Army, even though they do have a history of religious based homophobia in deciding who to "help". From the way you refer to LGBT people, I suspect you have very few or no out LGBT people in your life.”
EagleFliesInSky on Nov 27, 2011 at 15:44:36
“And what if those funds SA gets is from the government? They can't pick and choose who they help.
You can support whomever you please. The LGBT groups support many charities...try a google search.”

“The point, as we saw with the Boy Scouts, is to try to de-legitimize some of the most accepted institutions in the country. It is all part of the culture wars.”

“You presume that we DON'T support our own charities.
The difference between freedom of religion and what the SA does is they're spending tax-exempt donated money to infringe on the religious freedoms (and secular, inalienable rights) of the people that don't believe what the SA believes. I am a person of faith (raised in a SA home, btw), and my faith teaches me differently than the tenets of the SA. Yet I don't spend money trying to deny SA folk equal treatment before the law. (Nor do I get tax-exempt donations.)
If they could simply render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, then maybe we could remain silent in the face of such blatant discrimination.”
“MORE POWER TO THE SALVATION ARMY! THE ORGANIZATION HAS THE RIGHT TO SERVE WHOMEVER THEY CHOOSE JUST AS EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE HIS/HER LIFESTYLE. I'M SURE THERE ARE PLENTY OF ORGANIZATIONS TO ASSIST THOSE IN NEED WHO ARE LGBT AND IF THERE ARE NOT, THEN ALL YOU LGBT SHOULD START ONE. I HAVE THE RIGHT TO DONATE TO WHATEVER ORGANIZATION I CHOOSE WITHOUT ANYONE TELLING ME WHAT ORGANIZATION I SHOULD OR SHOULD NOT SELECT.”

“"IF THERE ARE NOT, THEN ALL YOU LGBT SHOULD START ONE"
OMG!!! What a great idea ignorant straight person, your right, we SHOULD start organizations to help ourselves, why didn't we think of this years ago, like even in the 50's, man, if we LGBT had started WAY WAY WAY back then, maybe TODAY we would be able to get married, have or adopt children, serve openly in the military, or even political office.... you ARE SOOO SMART ignorant straight person.”

“Could you please stop YELLING.
That's what all caps means on the web.
You are perfectly free to donate to whom ever you wish. NO one is telling you otherwise. But that you would choose to do so to a discriminatory agency is your choice. We'd just prefer that it be an INFORMED choice.”
“Klee, Are you suggesting that the police arbitrarily and randomly stop and frisk citizens for the sheer purpose of harassment? I doubt that. I'd like to think that police stop and frisk only those who are acting suspicious or have done something causing the police to be suspicious. I don't think innocent people going about their daily lives really need worry about being stopped and frisked. I certainly am not going to worry that I will be stopped and frisked nor do I anticipate that any of my friends or family would be concerned in that regard.”

“" I don't think innocent people going about their daily lives really need worry about being stopped and frisked."
I guess you missed the part of the article where 50% of the people stopped were actually innocent of any crime.”
“The article suggests that the stop-and-frisk policy is finding only half of the criminals. That sounds to me like they are not stopping and frisking enough but at least half of the criminals being convicted is better than none. I say the police need to get tougher.”
klee1701 on Nov 16, 2013 at 13:30:53
“At what point does it become too much? Stop and frisk is a violation of the concept "innocent until proven guilty" and "illegal search and seizure".
The "stop and frisk" law did nothing but give the police free reign to stop and harass anyone at anytime for no reason at all.”

“Justin is on his way to becoming (or maybe he is) the male counterpart to Lindsay Lohan. This kid needs help fast. He's living his life out loud, at too early an age. What's he going to do when he's an old man of 25?”
“I watched the segment that is referred to in this so-called "offensive" commercial. The only people who connected this commercial to the preceding piece about Gabby Douglas are the sickos who would probably shout racial slurs. If NBC had not given airtime to whomever it was that suggested there was a deliberate segue from Gabby to this commercial, there would not have been an issue. It never entered my mind that there was or is a connection between Gabby Douglas and that commerical--the two were distinct and separate in my mind and I'm sure for millions of other viewers.”
