“Yes Katie is adorable and well respected, but folks seem to have lost their perspective that Chelsea's show is a comedy show and no one is considered out of reach for a joke. Jen is quickest to laugh at jokes about herself and I am sure Katie is the same.
Media as usual, trying to create a showdown and their favorite is to portray two women at each others throats.”
“It is not hard to feel sympathetic to what he went through as a child and adult, as a gay person in a society much different than the one we live in today.
I do feel that he or his father's estate should pay back the money and I think he should pay an amount appropriate for child support to his wife and children. They were innocents and suffered greatly. His torment does not relieve him of his parental responsibilities.
I hope he cares what his children have been through. For some reason that is not given, he never speaks about them, at all in these interviews. Maybe he has split himself off from that pain, but to me, homecoming must include the emotional and monetary debts that remain.
I find it disturbing he never mentions his children and would imagine that is like an additional knife to his them.
Parents have a heavy duty to protect their children as much as humanly possible from the torments and scars within themselves. When they cannot or do not fulfill that duty, they have an obligation to do all they can to make amends to those children, and often to the parent left trying to help the children heal.
Maybe his self esteem is so low, he does not realize the power he had over others lives. I”

“Please realize this comment is not meant to discount anything you've said above.
Please realize that ABC's 20/20 "I Escaped My Life..." program sliced nearly 400 hours of coverage into 21 minutes of Sensationalism for Drama/Interest vs. Balanced Journalism - they edited out tons and yes, " mentions of his children".

“Why didn't his father Let the Neighborhood watch know that Trayvon was going to be staying there? His dad's GF lives there they knew about the robberies and I am sure heard the Descriptions of the suspect((s)) and knew why the Neighborhood Watch had been implemented, Common sense says that his dad would have told the Neighborhood Watch members NOT because of his Color but because he would be someone NEW to the Neighborhood......”
Trevor Dillon on Jul 17, 2013 at 23:27:12
“Did his father Contact The Neighborhood watch and let them know that Trayvon was going to be staying there? His father's GF lives there so there is no doubt his father was well aware of the Crimes that brought about the Neighborhood Watch, I'm sure they heard about the descriptions of the Suspect((s)) from the Robberies. With all that and his son being from Miami common sense says he would have told Neighborhood Watch about Trayvon and NOT because of his color but because of him being someone new in the Neighborhood!”

“She is a true gem. I like and trust this young lady whereas, I have disdain for the white crackers who have made fools of themselves here. People like you make being white a real burden. I do get a surge of relief though when I think how great it is that I am not you. The real shame is, that you are too ignorant to even be ashamed.”

“She is illiterate. She is inarticulate. She obviously have very little education. Your post is very hard to read and understand. Maybe you and Rachel are too peas in a pod. You can understand each other, but no one else can.”
“I had a California police officer demand of me last week in an accusing tone "Do you think a judge knows as much about the law as a police officer does?" He went on to repeatedly assert that judges do not know as much about the law as a police officer does. He firmly believed this. I could not believe my ears, that he would speak as though this were common knowledge and an obvious fact, as though he were reprimanding me for thinking otherwise. Hey, just think how much cheaper it would be if we just merged the three branches of government into one branch. That is the direction things are headed.”
Amanda Bell on Feb 14, 2013 at 11:21:21
“Agreed, beyond even knowing the law, they think they're above it. Cops can be really scary when they decide to abuse their power, I've witnessed first-hand. It's common knowledge in this town I reside (also in CA) that cops will lie. Lie on the ticket they write, then lie on the stand when you contest it (happened to two close friends so far). I've seriously considered mounting cameras all over my car to protect myself (slightly cost prohibitive though, and also may attract attention). I hate crooked cops (I know a few good ones though so I won't say I hate ALL cops). The nature of the profession quite simply is attractive to the type of individual we shouldn't be trusting with power.”
“Then when the streets are flooded with MORE homeless seniors they can find some nice ice floe to put them on. Wait, there are fewer and fewer ice floes due to climate change. Well they are a creative bunch and more homeless seniors would be depressing, so they will think of something to do with them. Oh, that's right, "them" is us.
But let's not get distracted by a bunch of old folks who are too old to fight back anyway, let's stay focused on what really matters, that the wealthy be able t0 keep accumulating more wealth than they could spend in 20 lifetimes. Who needs old folks? Soylent Green anyone?”
“Since Angelina bore his child while he was still married to Jennifer, I am going to assume that they had sex. The heart may want what it wants, but with a little patience it can get what it wants without publicly humiliating others. He could have waited to act on his feelings until his marriage to Jennifer was ended. Divorce ends a marriage; attractions for others does not. Even with a divorce, respectful people do not make their feelings for others public until some time has passed. Having a child with another, while still married is the opposite of that.”

“he announced legal separateion in Jan 2005....Divorce finalized OCtober 2005, Angline had their first child May 2006 meaning she got pregnant in Sept of 2005 long after the separation. Divorces take forever through the state. This on was fairly quicker than others I have seen. They were not together when she got pregnant with his child.”
“Gays are killed in this country every day. I have worked with people coming here for asylum as gays from other countries, and I often think the immigration judges kindly look the other way, when it is clear the same atrocities often happen here. The news just has seldom covered the crimes against gays and the government has not kept a record of hate crimes against gays. The LGBT community knows, too often first hand. So, they DO die and not just the sweet teens bullied into suicide. By the way, it is not just those dear ones bullied into suicide. It would be nice to know how many have killed themselves over this gay marriage issue. I am sure the number is significant.”
“Most lgbt peoples will not vote for Romney, but the gay community can also choose to not donate the large amounts of funds at their disposal, to a candidate who has consistently and blatantly turned his back on their essential needs. They could even choose to donate money that would have otherwise gone to his candidacy, somewhere else; someplace that cares about lgbt people, their civil and human rights.
The time is long past when the Democrats can count on the oppressed groups in America, with that worn out "they have no where else to go" attitude.
What few straight people realize is that a united couple made up of two men, is a money making machine. Male privilege, timed two and an awareness that financial security can provide some of the security that a homophobic culture does not, has created an environment conducive to accumulating wealth. That wealth can be focused with laser precision when the issues and needs are clear.”
“I realize it was an attempt at humor, but I found it offensive. Saying something was a joke is not a pass for any comment. Racist jokes are offensive and they are jokes. This makes the Secretary of State, one of the most powerful people in the world, sound like a ditzy, drunk, schoolgirl with a crush on that oh so irresistible prez. Humor is a funny and risky business. If I were Obama, I would not want to poke the legions of voters who were and are fiercely loyal to Hillary. Just because the Republicans seem to want to brand and corral women, does not mean Democrats are above displaying great disrespect for women.”

“Too funny. I agree with you that it does make the SoS sound like a ditzy, drunk, schoolgirl with a crush" and puts her in the same league with the party boy Secret Service that had to get come for curfew. The best humor is based on truth and this was Hillary-ous.
Not surprising someone would cast this as victimization and sexism, which is always the fall back Hillary stumbles.”

“Why would anyone be surprised about this, when he came out against gay marriage during his last campaign, helping prop 8 to win in California. I refuse to continue to accept that I must vote for a Democrat because the Republicans are a scary loony tunes bunch. The two party system is a complete failure in this country, as neither party represents the Left. We now just have the Right and the so far right we're not sure if The Stafford Wives now has its own party, commonly known as the Republican Party. They are all just puppets of the uber rich. All these extreme antics by those reenacting The Handmaiden's Tale, are probably just distractions from their hidden agendas. If their mouths are moving its lies they be a spewing.”

“Those "Stafford" Wives are a scary bunch. You should vote for Romney, whose position on gays is not that far off from Bachman's. That will just end the national debate altogether...and LGBT groups can sit around and talk about it among themselves.”
“What due process did this girl receive? Maybe this is the beginning of the new law, whereby we can all be jailed for no reason. Used to require a reason.”

“Exactly!! Was she arrested? And if so for what? She didn't show up to the hearing. Many don't show up out of fear. I don't understand this story at all. Since when do you treat the victim as a criminal. I seen an episode like this once on SVU.”
“I am not criticizing her, I am uncomfortable with the cold tone of voice of the person talking to her. They seem adversarial with each other by their tone of voice.”

“I am confused by this video. It does not look like she is receiving comfort and support, but rather someone is bothering her and videotaping her. She may have been too drugged to consent to being videotaped. The taping seems very crudely handled, without tenderness to this poor soul. I do not know the language, but the tone of voice is not very nice and the girl seems bothered by what is being said to her. Something feels very wrong about this.”

“What? Pointing out the legal definition of rape and the obvious conclusion that the law requiring penetration is a form of rape. What the rape it not enough, we are supposed to be silent about it. It is hardly a secret.”
“Look at magazine racks in any market and see how many articles are written about what men want and how to please a man. Then look to see how many articles are written on what women want and how to please a woman. I have been looking for 20 years and have yet to see one article about the later. Heaven forbid the topic be raised. I think this attitude says it all; why women are not as sexually available as some men might like. No manual to read, as no manual has been written, as very few take the time to find out what women want.”

Are you kidding me? Do you live under a rock with one magazine or have you been in stasis for the last 30 years. We have been talking about getting women off for decades in writing, speech, popular culture, and every mechanism. I am surprised a car's owners manual doesn't have tips on stimulating a clitoris.”
“I am using a smile as an indication of happiness. I have never seen a photo of them smiling. I have seen them with other celebrities children who were all laughing and smiling, while they were not. I have been looking for a smile since I first saw a photo of one of them.”
