“Why on earth would anyone wish to become famous? I'm absolutely bewildered by people like Paris Hilton or the Kardashians who crave fame more, even, than the fortune that comes along with it.
Old money knows it best...there's something extraordinarily tacky about having one's picture and one's life splashed all over the media.
More than that, I'm bewildered by the people who become avid followers of these publicity whoores. How empty does one's life have to be in order to become consumed with wanting to be like a Kardashian?”
“What a wonderful, wonderful story. I've lost my dogs for a few hours at a time and was just gutted. I can't imagine if they'd been hit by a truck first. So VERY happy at this happy ending. (And your selfie is adorable.)”
“That would be true if education actually prepared you for a career. Expect for MD's, lawyers and engineers, it doesn't. It prepares you to shine at a game of Trivial Pursuit, which, ironically is what a college degree amounts to .”
“I know someone whose niece just got a doctorate in trans-gneder studies. The ONLY way that will pay her bills is if she ends up teaching the same nonsense to other fools who see a degree as a political statement instead of an education. Millions more of your tax dollars being flushed down the toilet.”

“The same way health care came to cost too much. Add in the loan industry or the insurance industry and there are millions of people having to create billions of dollars in income off of what was once affordable to everyone without either loans OR insurance.”
“Student loans are the biggest scam to hit America. If you really want a degree, work three jobs. To go into debt for a degree that may or may not help you earn a living is insane.
Colleges are no longer places to become educated. They are giant profit centers, sucking off the teat of easy money through the student loan system. As such, they accept people who really don't belong there, aren't really prepared to be there and for whom the standards are lowered to such a degree as to make graduating from college meaningless.”

“colleges are an indispensable part of a young person's education. Where else can you take a course that teaches all about the female orgasm? (I kid you not).”
“And yours states that you "hate all things Republican". GRRRR's gotta wonder just when the left became so snarly and intolerant.
Just because you don't agree with an opinion, IGottaB, doesn't mean it's absurd. There are those of us who believe that there are far better solutions to our common problems than the debacle that we're witnessing now with Obamacare. That doesn't make our opinions absurd. And, discounting them as absurd shows a real paucity of critical thinking and logical debate.
Your political fervor is blinding you to reality. A joke is a joke, even when it's at the expense of YOUR particular belief system.”

“Wake up. It was NOT a joke. That comment was a JAB. It doesn't matter whether YOU like it, but I have a right to respond to a BS comment.”
“And THIS, Violet, is why I DON'T read the bible. Such capricious dictates about things that have nothing to do with getting closer to God. As silly as the edict to not eat meat on Fridays or the "sin" of wearing patent leather shoes.
God gave us a brain for a reason. I wish more people would use it to think for themselves.
Spare me from any cult that tells me what I'm "supposed" to do.”

“As an atheist, I just find it amusing that most Christians haven't any idea of what's in their bible.
Seems if they are going to use it as a weapon against gays, they ought to know the bible also tells them to not cut down and decorate trees like the pagans. They really haven't much of a leg to stand on when pontificating about how it's a "christmas trees" when God has clearly told them it's a Pagan Tree.”
“Really? Corporations gutted our military? Corporations put millions of people who didn't need it on food stamps? Corporations made the LAW that resulted in millions of health insurance policies being cancelled because they didn't meet Obamacare's requirements?
Interesting theory. I'd love to hear how you came to that conclusion.”
“America less safe now than two years ago? Geez, Beav. I wonder why that is?
You gut the military, you put millions of people out of jobs, you hook millions more to be dependent on the government, you triple what it costs to get health care coverage and you flush the economy down the toilet with trillion dollar a year spending and we wonder why we're less safe than two years ago?”

“Isn't that Communism? Control everyone's lives. How about all the Cell Phones that we Tax Payers are paying for and the phones are been used to ''sell for drugs.'' Who's ''bright idea'' was that?'' How about ''there is no limit as to what you can purchase with your Food Stamps..whether it be Alochol, Drugs, even Strip Clubs in some places. In many cases the Govt., was practically forcing Food Stamps on people who did not want or need them. There is a lady working Full -Time g”
