Paula Deen Defended Southern Attitude Towards Race In Fall 2012 (VIDEO)

Paula Deen Defended Southern Attitude Towards Race In Fall 2012 (VIDEO)

“Okay, its obvious she was raised in and with the attitude of the South. It's obvious she did not go into counseling for some soul searching, attitude changing, prejudice purging therapy prior to her loose lips remarks. But this is sabotage of Paula Deen which couldn't be clearer. She, like everyone else has some social barriers. She is not vicious about it, she is not advocating "White supremacy rights". She is a product of her environment, aren't we all? She has learned a public and personal lesson, she has apologized to anyone she has offended....no need to drag her through the mud. I will never watch food network again, they have been to harsh on this woman.”

“Would we understand the divine intervention if he did? If not, we wouldn't know him them, would we? Would you want God to continue to pacify us so we're not accountable for ourselves any longer? We are given free will to choose our actions, and its what we're doing to each other and our world, that causes these atrocities to exist. Many things man has made a mess of...We don't call God in our lives like a janitor to clean them up, we ask for forgiveness and then for wisdom. One man said, if it weren't for Jesus to spread the word of truth and our only hope for salvation, making believers out of many, we would have eaten ourselves alive centuries ago.”

“I wouldn't suggest to abandon our soldiers for whatever help they needed for any war inflicted pain and trauma indefinitely, and excuse me if this comes across wrong. But in Boston, and other places where similar violent attacks occurred, they were not expecting it, nor prepared for it. Nor prepped for the inevitable. In the military, a soldier does know the worst can happen at any moment. This doesn't make it less traumatic on our soldiers, I am sure but there is a difference in the circumstances.”

“Now there is an idea. I guess the Govt. will think twice instead of once when conflict arrises.”

Buford on Apr 17, 2013 at 07:58:49

“Exactly. Folks might a little less 'kill them all!' when it's their friends and family in harm's way... as it should be.
Remember 'Operation Yellow Elephant'...? Basically, calling out college-age Young Republicans who angrily supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from the safety of their dorm rooms... at a time when the short-handed military was actually lowering entry requirements to obtain more recruits. At a time when the nation was split, these cowards were effectively foaming at the mouth regarding our need to fight these wars, but refused to sign up themselves.”

“Understood, but it is the closest to a "war zone" comparison that most of us have seen. Excluding of course, our military. I would think it would bring the "reality" of war's nightmares to those of us who haven't been there.”

mawrm on Apr 17, 2013 at 02:30:02

“It's not even close. It's like saying I know what war's like 'cause I've been to an air show. Technically, the military doesn't count. Our military is trained, _leaves our shores_, goes and fight wars in other peoples homes and neighborhoods, and comes back to their nice tidy neighborhoods and significant others.

Real war does not offer such comfort. One day it's your neighbors down the street who gets the tank shell or MLRS rocket, the next day it might be your home. The percussion of distant explosions are the drumbeats of war and much like how we try to determine how close lightning struck based on the sound, you're trying to figure out how close the shelling is getting to determine whether it safe to stay in your house or move elsewhere. You don't have running water and electricity so you're forced to go outside to collect food and water and run the risk of getting sniped or caught during an artillery barrage or firefight. And please God don't let there be a firefight in your neighborhood - stay away from the windows is the best you can do and pray nobody decides to send RPGs your way. "Friendly conversation" consists of where is the fighting, where you can find food and who's died, This is your daily existence. If you're not a roving refugee.

Living through war as a civilian... I wouldn't wish it even on my enemies.”

“What is everyone complaining about??? This is MAJOR news and well past due. Aren't you all tired of hearing on the news whats in your food? Aren't you concerned about the consequences of GMO's? Food is NOT suppose to be genetically modified, that's franken-food!! I'm quite tired of being treated like a lab rat....Since I realized this years ago, I have been careful what my family eats and sometime I still don't get it right....Who needs that stress when simply shopping and cooking for your family, whether its real food or not? Especially at a time when people are out of work, loosing their health insurance (if they had any) only to be manipulated into eating toxic waste from Monsanto and no way to prove it was their fault.”

“I dont think anyone should be forced to pay union dues as a "condition" of employment. I honestly feel that is a qualification standard between employee and company. qualifications for the job is a must, not a purchase. There could be many incompetent employees who could bring the company to its knees and that could unemploy all of us...I dont think a person should be "fired" for refusing to pay union dues, there again you can have skilled labor out the door. Although I am a dues paying member of our union its my personal choice and I dont resent anyone working beside me who isnt.
There are those who dont agree with our national union political aspirations, they just cant support it. Our wages that were fought and won were a union victory, yes. That is why I support my union and activities regarding our collective bargaining.”

“It appears the Republicans, who by the way do NOT want any concessions from the wealthiest of Americans, are only going after the poor and middle class to sabotage this Democratic president. As Soledad had mentioned, the people on food stamps cannot be making any more than 23,000 per year....you really want to go after that?”

mollyinthemiddle on Dec 11, 2012 at 23:39:39

“He doesn't care really. The one thing we know about those that qualify for food stamps is they are probably not helping finance this guy's campaign. And they don't have any true representative to defend their needs. Easy pickin's--no loss of campaign money.”

“Excuse me, I live in Fla and it is already a "right to work state" I dont see any problems with that . It is one of 23 states that have this law. I also voluntarily joined our union. Yes, there are some who didnt, they make the same wages as us. Sometime when they need union intervention, they sign up. Sometimes, others drop out. I positively see a need for a union at our company, no doubt about it. Unfortunately, corporate managers do not have the ability to treat workers with dignity and respect and would rather throw you to the wolves than to work together for the good of the company. Thank goodness, there is that union protection!”

butchymail on Dec 11, 2012 at 22:22:17

“That's the problem. Why should your fellow employees who are not union members paying dues and fees benefit from the same thing that you pay for?”

peacekitten on Dec 11, 2012 at 22:21:29

“do you think it's fair that those who won't support you still think they're entitled to the fruits of your union's labor for free?”

“It does not matter now how Mitt Romney back steps. It is now a matter of public information that he thinks 47% of Americans are self-identified, government dependent victims, who think they are entitled to food, housing and health care. The leaches of America. Even if he found the "eloquent" words to rephrase his opinion, we know how he views half of America.

“The duty of a prosecutor is to do justice not to win cases.

The [prosecutor] is the representative not of an ordinary party to a controversy, but of a sovereignty whose obligation to govern impartially is as compelling as its obligation to govern at all, and whose interest, therefore, in a criminal prosecution is not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done. As such, he is in a peculiar and very definite sense the servant of the law, the two-fold aim of which is that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer. He may prosecute with earnestness and vigor -- indeed, he should do so. But, while he may strike hard blows, he is not at liberty to strike foul ones. It is as much his duty to refrain from improper methods calculated to produce a wrongful conviction as it is to use every legitimate means to bring about a just one.

“Sarah Palin has ALWAYS annoyed me. McCain insulted voters, both men and women in his presidential campaign to put a woman on his ticket for "appeal" sakes. She was NOT qualified, and had no serious political attributes, just a GOP cheerleader. It was not like we were choosing the better tooth paste, we were voting on our countries representatives and he belittled us and our judgements. McCain wanted to steal "Hillary Clinton" ballots, and Mrs. Palin was his puppet. I will always view THESE Republicans as under qualified, self serving, and out of touch. They play on the vulnerabilities of the people, to instill fear and insecurities while being a major cause of our economic mess. (they ran the office of President for 8 years) They are elected to REPRESENT us, not lead us, but leading us..they are..into despair. As for Bidens remark about the "chains", even though the Obama administration attempted to clarify Bidens remark, and sensibly so....they need to understand "Be thoughtful of what you say, it will be taken as you say it" Back pedaling not appreciated!!”
