“Let us remember it is the press that let's these corporate politicos speak without being challenged. Even the most outrageous statements are simply sucked in, written down and presented to the public. The tough questions the press used to ask are now to controversial and might upset the sponcers. The new era of the press reporting and the public,"deciding", is uterally shameful. When the hard questions needed to be asked, where were you?”

“Agreed. Reporters are being killed overseas and in Central and South America and our yahoo's are going along with the corporate program. They aren't even putting up a fight.”
“You purvey the false choice. It does not change the reality that the woman crossed the line to the detriment of her child for money; and you defended her with subterfuge.”

“Crossed what line? The exposing a breast line you mean? It's meant to be used for feeding kids. Just because you disagree with her choice doesn't mean it's any of your business. There are literally millions of children in this country with far more pressing problems: homeless, hungry, abused, lack of education, poor nutrition, bullying, climate change, pollution, disease.
The mom did not know they would be pictured on the cover. And I doubt she got paid for being interviewed. It's TIME, not Jerry Springer.”

“Statisticians lie with pushed statistics. I used to believe Moody's and the other credit rating companies. They lied and got off the hook by saying it was just an opinion. They knowingly lied for money and our enforcers gave them a pass. Now we look at the opinion pollsters; how well will their methodology stand up to scrutiny?”
“No meeting unless she is tied to a waterboard. The man was quoted as saying, We don't want an investigation, we want an inquisition! Only with torture do we get the facts we need to put this behind us...”
“The Mormon is going to grab these young impressionable Christian children and lead them to Mormanism! Who is the traitor at Lib U. that is letting this happen? I demand an investigation. Christians, be warned, there are enemies amongst us!”
“Sometimes. You want to argue who will win the world series or the best pizza, ok. But human rights and bigotry zealots get no slack from me. Watch your mouth at a party cause we are done laughing at gay jokes.”
“When the child needs a shave? You are so sickly wrong. Even your examples stop at two years. Do not like my word choice? Fine. I will call it child abuse.”

“Call it what you will. The photo was obviously chosen for shock value. I am sure that the child most likely nurses when he is tired, sick or otherwise needing comfort.
American's really need to get over their issues with nursing mothers. As far as my examples stopping at 2 years look again. WHO says a Minimum of 2 years. You should really do more research into the matter. If you do not choose it for yourself that's fine. To try and tell someone else to live like you is just as wrong as you think nursing the child at 3 years old is.”
“Bill was just doing a news piece on Glee, when he had a strong desire to use hair gel and a few other products. He turned himself over to the family Christian court, was found guilty of impure thoughts and fired for the good of the children. Now that is a bedtime story...”
“Look up the definition of pederasty and try again. It's a sexual relationship between an older man and a boy.
From the LaLecheLeague: Many people are familiar with the recommendation that, to achieve optimal growth, infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life. What some don't realize, however, is that there are benefits to nursing a child beyond six months. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends nursing for a minimum of two years, and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) advises the same. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends breastfeeding for at least a year.
Live and let live when it comes to nursing toddlers. It should be a matter of personal choice in the family.
If people would stop seeing the female breast as a sexual object there would be no problem at all. The female breast's function is to nourish children. If you see a nursing mother and think anything other than that she is nursing her child there is something wrong with you.”
