The Moment I Knew I Had To Break Up With My Best Friend

The Moment I Knew I Had To Break Up With My Best Friend

Commented May 22, 2014 at 15:41:59 in OWN

“It's harder to keep a friendship together when there's no sex involved; you have to put more "real" into it. I had the reverse problem than above. I was "friends" with an emotional vampire with whom I seemed, on the surface, to have much in common culturally. We hiked together, shared insights, lunches, family problem, man problems, etc... .And when she had to go to a 7am cancer operation I was the one who drove her; got up at 5am, picked her up and drove her 60 miles out of my way making sure she got there and waited with her; of course her mother, father or brother couldn't be bothered. What SHE couldn't be bothered to do on our hikes was drive or help pay for gas or parking at the state park; pay her share of lunch -- ever. I've left out quite a bit. What she *did* do was complain about money -- constantly and when she found out I was never going to cough up any, she dumped me without so much as a "see ya later." I was never so relieved in my life.”

“she wasn't an "emotional vampire." she was just a leech. who knew she had to share some time with you to get more money out of you.”

“Simpson was convicted, in Nevada, of armed robbery, kidnapping and many other felonies. I do not see how this was a "gross abuse(s) of the law." He went through the same judicial process that previously acquitted him of the murder of two human beings of which he was accused. Now, it seems to me as though he's out of legal appeal options, in a state of panic and has become a bit of a hypochondriac. Although a known diabetic, he's refused to see doctors to either confirm or deny a "brain tumor" he *says* he has, and he just wants to go home. He's probably afraid the doctors will categorize his symptoms as part of his diabetes and fully controllable where he is. The court says he committed many crimes, he has to serve commensurate time.”

“Plenty of us were against the war...but she went into enemy territory and performed with enemy troops while we were trying to get our brothers, cousins and friends -- who were fighting there -- home before they possibly got killed. She knew what she was doing.”

Lilia Smith on Aug 27, 2013 at 10:54:46

“we were already out of the war and most of our troops were already home. She went in 1972, her purpose was to attempt to stop the US from hitting Nam with a final bombing salvo that was going to destroy their irrigation infrastructure. over 2000 miles. It would have killed nearly 2 million people had we made this strategic move. Where she PO'ed the American Vets off was after that when faced with censure by the by the Whitehouse for exposing this plan, she reacted to their smear campaign by minimizing the stories of abuse a torture suffered by US soldiers (none of which she ever witnessed, met, or was ever directly privy of in her visits to Vietnam) and called them lies, and hypocrites.”

“She didn't criticize the "Israel lobby." Go back and hear her exact quote. She said the Jews should go back to Germany.”

Yank in France on Jul 22, 2013 at 10:37:31

“She said the Jews should go back to Europe, which includes Germany. Not a smart thing to say but what is far worse is what Israelis have actually done to Palestinians: ethnic purging via the expropriation without compensation of that native population and their forced exile from their own country! Sometimes people, even a great White House correspondent, can make a verbal misstep for which the self-righteous among us will never forgive us! In the meantime, Israel's "American" supporters are quite happy to set the world on fire, as long as the chosen people have their own state. A sort of REVENGE.”

“The...Washington...Jewish...lobby. I was a journalist for decades and never heard of that one. How do you join up?”

JISantiago on Jul 21, 2013 at 19:46:24

“If you only had stopped being an ostrich, you would have heard it and seen it as well. Don't you know it is a taboo in Washington to speak against Israel?(!) Helen only exercised her right to speak of her mind. Isn't that what all journalist should do and not pander to the wishes of the mighty and powerful? First, they got her removed as the doyen of the White House press corps. Then they put and end to her syndication. These are mighty people and they can do anything they wanted to. Don't cross swords with them!”

“Actually, DRL, she was anti-Semitic. After working for UPI, I got to know a number of people who worked with Ms. Thomas and received the brunt of her comments. Ms. Thomas was of Lebanese heritage and did not like Jews like me. As I see it her recorded comment that Jews in Israel should "go home," "go back to Germany" or go "anywhere" was based on her deep-down hostility. And her stance against our war in Iraq was not based so much on ethics so much as it was on her Arab background. Also she had her name plate in the press room long after she was employed as a credentialed reporter; she was a columnist at the time her controversial statement was made. An excellent journalist? No question. An anti-Semite? No question there either. Some people don't know when to leave the party.”

“Perhaps the victim(s) made the 911 call because she didn't see any emergency vehicles at the scene of the crisis and honestly didn't know and/or trust the airline crew to provide help. As a side note, now we know one of the flight attendants actually ASKED the pilot if she could evacuate the plane and was told by the bozo who just crashed it to "wait." My question is: wait for what?”
