“The fact that Anthony Weiner trusted this person damages my opinion of him far more than anything else about his sexting.
She was every bit as guilty as him throughout the whole thing. Now she's making fun of him for it. This is all about her and I'm really going to hate watching her become the next vapid young woman to become unreasonably famous.”

“I'm saying a lot about everybody, especially the privileged whites who think they know the solution to any of the ills of America's black population. These are the people who think that hoodies cause crime, yet they advocate voter suppression. This casual racism that you (not you personally) want to ignore because it has never affected you. Therefore, in the undeveloped and incurious mind, it does not exist. This is the stumbling block that holds us back. The overt racism of the conservatives that cause them to flagellate themselves every month with a "repeal ObamaCare" vote, or causes them to refuse to sanction infrastructure work on our bridges and roads is appalling. Yet, that is not vile and lazy enough to get voted out of office.”
“"Basically, every organ necessary to the life of any creature/organism must be functional and interactive with every other organ. This scientific fact proves that all necessary organs must have "evolved" together at the same time. However, if every organ began as a speck of non-working flesh, evolution is impossible”
Uh... what? You seem to be making the same mistake people who say "I didn't evolve from a monkey, I've never been a monkey" make. We're talking billions of years. Whatever an organ started as, it was certainly not a speck of non-working flesh.
I also question the idea that every organ interacts with every single other organ. On a superficial level, maybe. But I really don't think my ears have much to do with my pancreas.”
“I don't know if this can necessarily be interpreted as saying atheists can go to heaven. I could be wrong, but the way it reads to me is that he's saying 1.) Jesus died for everyone's sins and 2.) everyone, even atheists, can do good things. That leaves plenty of room for "Jesus did redeem you ahead of time, but you have to accept him to go to heaven." I really think his point was just that you can have atheists in your group of do-gooders, you can befriend atheists, etc. Again, I could be wrong.
I'm an atheist and it gets kind of old with people thinking morality comes from religion. I know people who wouldn't let their kids visit the home of an atheist friend for fear that they'd be corrupted somehow.”

“Well said. And as an atheist, I don't believe in heaven anyway. What is wrong with asking people to do good things because it's the right thing to do, no matter what religion they are. Why does it only have to be because Jesus tells you you must.”
“Frankly, I do know some Southern Baptists who believe that anything good an atheist does has bad intentions behind it, or is just being used as a tool by Satan to bring others to atheism.”

“"Believers" are one of Satan's very best, most successful tools. Always have been. The very best lies have a little "truth" in them. Good is good no matter who performs the deed. Motives are a whole other matter. A loving act is determined by the heart of the individual, whether believer or unbeliever. Doesn't each feel that what they have to offer is for the good of all people? IMHO...”

“Your disdain for the entire region and all people of the South because some people there are racist interestingly parallels the reasoning of racists who hate all blacks based on the actions of a few.”

“I don't think that this could be called racism. This was someone misguided trying to do a good thing. It shows ignorance, but racism would imply a degree of hatred or of thinking that people are "better" or "worse" because of their race. This was someone being wrongly concerned for the kids.”

“"Don't fit"? Under what mindset would you see a white/black parent, black/white appearing child and say "don't fit"? Are you kidding? I have people of all hues in my family. Don't fit? And that can't be called racism? Then what would you call it? Besides, ever heard of adoption?”

“I have no idea why that happened in Japan, but the fact is that hemp is not the same thing as pot. Hemp is not a drug. It will not get you high. It's basically the same plant but with no THC content. You can look it up.”

“Your problems/your kids' problems will be nothing like problems I saw when young in 70s. Try not to be angry/afraid, you're not alone. Assume you'll have problems, sort of like getting stopped at red light when you're in hurry. Count your blessings that you're not at beginning of this "change." Keep your ID on you, be grateful "biracial" children are protected, regardless of reason. Learn to have sense of humor, realize that you're forefront of newer Truth. Keep list of stories, write a book, get rich. It's your job to set an example. Your use of "biracial" implies you're both USA, that's all that matters. You're frontier couple. By time your kids grow up, hopefully there won't be any problems. It's our job to shape World for our children. That includes suffering for them. Good luck and Peace.”

“It's worth noting that whoever sounded the false alarm was showing concern for the children, who certainly appear to be a different race than their father. My point being, this was not anti-black discrimination.
That being said, good, stay out. Those of us with some gumption will continue to try to improve things.”

“Staying out is keeping my money out of there. And I do and will forever. I've purchased 2 things at Walmart. Both turned out to be junk. I don't support businesses or locales that discriminate. There are other really good reasons not to patronize Walmart. They undermine the economy at the expense of the taxpayer while presenting themselves as a patriotic company that offers great prices. I've seen the hate in the South. I'll go there when my business sends me. That's it.”
"Beauty isn't between a size zero and a size eight. It is not a number at all. It is not physical," Ellen DeGeneres said recently in response to Abercrombie & Fitch's refusal to sell clothing for plus-size women. We agree wholeheartedly, but unfortunately, the messages many women get on a day-to-day basis communicate the opposite.
You agree wholeheartedly, eh? Truth is, the "messages many women get on a day-to-day basis" also come from this website. You run articles and slideshows of physically beautiful actresses quite often. You do the same with males.
The most important beauty is that on the inside-- but it's a sham to pretend you don't notice physical appearances.”
tippisheadrun on May 22, 2013 at 10:36:43
“Agreed. People value appearance and good looks - and so does HP if their light content is anything to go by - all pretty, thin actresses with flawless skin and workout regimes and diets that would put Olympic athletes to shame. This is a throw a bone story that attempts to balance out the endless Kardashian/Kate Middleton/Angelina Jolie coverage that we are told women can't get enough of reading.”
