“Oh please, what is Deanna Reid a shrinking violet. She's participating in a trial where someone's life is on the line. The defense (however inept) is going to do whatever they can to prove their pt, prove their case and save their client. Period. It's what you'd want if Jodi were your sister. The defense attrny was just trying to make absolutely clear to the jury that TA's 20-something relationship with Deanna was not his 30-something relationship with Jodi (even if his proclivities were similar); that we're talking apples and oranges, and that ppl act differently in different relationships. It had nothing to do with embarrassing her and WAS NOT personal.”
“If you're a freshman, the guys who've been up here the last year -- we can go home and say, 'Listen, we voted 36 different times to repeal or replace Obamacare.' -- tell me what the new guys are supposed to say," he said. "We haven't had a repeal or replace vote this year."
UNREAL! So he's saying, 'we just want to give the new guys a chance to obstruct along with the rest of us - on the taxpayers dime of course, while still receive gov't paid healthcare and taxpayer paychecks and while other critical issues are ignored and sorely needed legislation festers.' Special place in Hades for you, gents. SMH.”
“"We were here to protest communism and to stand up for the blue collar working class."
Anyone want to tell him who theoretically benefits unders communism? And what communism? Communism on his school's campus?
Kind of hints at the intellect of the people we're dealing with here.”
“You obviously have some issues with feminists - and possibly your wife - that I'm not going to get in the middle of. If you feel oppressed by women's lib, then feel free to start a group/man movement of your own.
My points were merely these: 1) men too can be moody, but normally display that moodiness in a different manner than women, and 2) I take issue with the fact that the word moody, unless speaking of teenagers, has a negative, often feminine association, when again, men too are moody yet display it differently.”

“And you obviously have an intellectual issue since you have poor understanding of things. what ever reply you have to my comments I have something to say back to you. now, not been on the same side as you doesn't mean that I have a problem with anybody, it means that I see things differently than you or other people. just remember that one of us is right and the other is wrong or perhaps we both could be wrong. either way it is not really smart for you to say that I have a problem with feminism or my wife just because I disagree with your ideas, so ignorant of you to say that!”
“Let me ask you something. When you think of the word brooding intensity, who pops into your mind's eye, a woman or a man? Same question as regards hearing the word moody. I clearly stated that while both sexes display moodiness (I know some lovely male writers I could introduce you to if you don't believe me that men can be just as moody as women), the behavior associated with that moodiness is different (i.e. harping as opposed to punching a wall, let's say). Women are more emotive, which is actually more about acceptable social behavior, and we have more fluctuations in our horomones. What I really take issue with is that most often (unless we're talking teenagers), the word moody has a negative connotation that is immediately applied to women.
And I'd love to have a look at those scientific studies you speak of.”
“Explain this to me: It's only a violation if he signs the scorecard w/ the 'false' score. But, wait, how does that work normally? If someone tells you there was a discrepancy or violation, esp during a big event like this, who would sign the scorecard? He signed it though he knew there was a discrepancy or he didn't realize?
IMHO, if this weren't Tiger Woods, the person would have been disqualified. The committee (or whomever makes the final decision), the sponsors, etc know that a lot of ppl (golf lovers and non-golf lovers) tune in to watch the Masters in part b/c they know Tiger's playing. If he'd been booted that would have dropped their numbers (viewership). Scandal or not, the man's still a phenom, a great player, is #1 again at present and can still bring in the spectators/$s.”
“"Meanwhile, other parts of the private sector (like much of corporate America) are sitting on large hoards of cash; the prospect of moderate inflation would make letting the cash just sit there less attractive, acting as a spur to investment — again, helping to promote overall recovery."
“It has to do with where the country is and what they're responding to. The fear of gun violence obviously resonates with ppl and so the media covers it. And the so called 'good guys' do bad things with guns too, you know.”
“The media is going to follow the story that's going to bring in viewers. In the wake of a series of well-publicized violent incidents the gun control issue has become one of them--they sensationalize stories then cover them to death, just how it is. Has zero to do with the 'liberal bias' you speak of.”

“Then why don't they publicize the stories of people defending themselves with guns? Do a Google search for "woman shoots home invader" and you'll find many links to a wide variety of such stories, many of which have happened *since* Newtown.
They're trying to make guns into bad-guys instead of tools that the bad guys use. I believe it has a lot to do with bias.”
“It's the display, the behavior associated with the 'moodiness' that she's missing here. Men behave differently when moody than women when we're moody; the moodiness isn't exclusive to women. Yet she makes it seem as if only one sex emotes/displays emotional behavior while the other does not. Very silly comment.”
