“It's about time we recognized the absurdity making an herb illegal...and started regulating it like we do alcohol and tobacco...and collecting TAXES on it...yay...and, by the way, there are much safer ways to use marijuana than smoking (which is a really BAD idea).”

“I shudder at this kind of ignorance...I mean...come on...Sickle Cell Anemia? This is a devastating genetic disorder that has NOTHING to do with diet...Diabetes?...okay, Type Two may be diet related, but again, Type One is inherited. Jeez, lady before you go flapping your lips, at least get your facts straight...or at least organize your thoughts...what a notion, eh?”

poozybear on Aug 22, 2013 at 13:57:20

“If you listen to the audio, she's actually aware that Sickle Cell is genetic, but babbles on about how blacks need to be educated on the genetic diseases that affect their race because they could prevent them by .... not eating chicken. For real. And then my head exploded.”

“Wow...what's happening here...okay, they are banning NBC and CNN from future debates...so, maybe they should just limit it entirely to FOX?”

Greywolf Borealis on Aug 18, 2013 at 13:50:05

“That would be a good thing, then only the narrowest of minded would watch.”

lizt on Aug 18, 2013 at 13:47:41

“But if they use the standards they used to ban NBC and CNN (movie about an undeclared candidate years before the election) then they have to ban fox, too. Fox has plans for a movie about her, too.”

“The fact that this humming only began to be noticed forty years ago suggests electronics may have something to do with it...why only in certain places? Someone needs to examine commonalities...get on it, clever people. :-)”

“My poor, three-year-old stepson got bit in the face by a 'friendly" family dog who was startled and just snapped at him. He required stitches and was understandably scared around dogs for a few years. As "cute" as it looks, I would strongly suggest people NOT let dogs and toddlers face-to-face...accidents will still happen, but we should do our best to avoid them :-(”

“It was so apparent the Cassadee Pope was a country-style vocalist...even though SHE thought of herself as a pop singer...whaaa? She will do really well in country. By the way, I've become SO fond of Cee Lo Green...what a sweet guy :-))”

itsasoriee on Dec 20, 2012 at 15:39:44

“That was the problem I had with Cassadee. She did do well on those country songs...but I don't think she's going to go in that direction. She may release like one or two country songs on her album yet I feel she's more rooted in that punk-pop genre that she came from”

robbcoffee on Dec 19, 2012 at 12:27:12

“Yeah, I'll miss Cee-lo next season.
I enjoy the way Blake and Adam play off one another and I'm glad to see Christina go after her nastiness this season, but I will definitely miss Cee-lo.”

“I think he was just looking for a way to make the pain go away. Plus he grew up in "Hollywood" and heroine was in abundant supply and has seen it his entire life (A friend of mine is a HS teacher in Boulder, CO and he's always got a student two that leaves class to get their methadone treatment. That drug IS everywhere) Not much of a stretch I think. Especially in the surreal experience of looking at your child in a hospital bed who you have raised and you think you don't have to worry about them hurting themselves anymore like you did when they were a toddler.”

“We all try to make sense of things like this...but we can't because it doesn't MAKE sense. We can't put ourselves in that place (I'm grateful for that). My own mother killed herself when she was 41...I was 14 years old. My adolescent mind decided that she thought we would be better off without her. I have NO way of knowing if that's true. But then, two years ago, my darling husband committed suicide too...I never dreamed I would have to experience that pain again. In his case he had a very sudden and dramatic descent into hell and couldn't take the depression any more. The last thing he said to me was, "I love you forever"...which is CRAZY because a person who takes their own life IS crazy. We have to accept that sometimes things just DON'T make sense.”

“Check back in British History as to what was going on when it was number one on the charts. The show addressed several "ugly" points of British history and the song was a bridge to the past. Sad the Brits didn't say something about the genocide against the Irish during the potato famine.”

renoir on Jul 30, 2012 at 18:44:31

“I personally love Hey Jude! But I'm guessing that perhaps he chose it because of the last part "la-la-la LALALA, LALALA, he-ey Jude" is singable no matter what language you speak! And even if you didn't know the song you could catch-on really quickly - creating the opportunity for a global sing-along. I know I did! Didn't you?”

The fact that Mrs. Romney used this expression suggests a defensiveness on her part and a sort of privileged attitude that does NOT help her husband.”
