Sep 12th 2009 3:53AM This poll is bogus and a joke that over 70% would think Bush kept us safer the first 9 months of his presidency. Who the hell got us into the Sept 11th attack by doing nothing to go after bin Laden and focused on Saddam Hussein since before he took office, while we have not had any attack since Barack Obama has been in office. It's just common sense that it is fact that Bush protected us less being now Obama has gone LONGER from this point without getting America attack like Bush did ignoring warning three weeks in advanced. Whoever is in charge of this poll or article is making up a bunch of crap by GOP lobbyists who hate that a black democratic president is successful and upset the right white kid from Texas is not liked like 8 years ago when we stood by Bush just to support America in the most serious time eveer in American hiistory as we believed at the time and Bush never went after al-queda or bin Laden.
Sep 10th 2009 11:53PM I hate hate hate the show with a mega passion as it is and always HAS BEEN!!! Ellen is the only thing to make this piece of s_h_i_t corporate right wing controlling American industry show anything decent to ad humor and do it withpout degrading an dhumiliating contestants. Sure many of the contestants have no talent at all but that is no damn excuse for a jduge to be a complete f'ing ass hole like Simon is just to get ratings. Stupid people watch the show just to hate Simon and that is exactly the WRONG thing to do. We should boycott and not air his controversial remarks and thing she says just like Rush Limblabla, who said he hopes America fails under Obama, just to get rating through controversy, just like he made his whoel fortuen cslandering Clinton in the 90s. Before that Rush was a nobody and would be cleaning toiletts or picking up trash for NYC had Clinton not been president and Simon makes his profit off slander and being a controversial jack ass. This show deserves no airtime and is a disgrace to America. Paula Abdul, also, was famous for only a few years and is NOT a damn legend, like Billy Joel, Elton John, Sting, Carly Simon, Belinda Carlille (singer of Go Gos), Olivia Netwon John, Smokey Robinson, Lionel Richie, etc. the list goes on of real singers who were famous over DECADES who shoudl have qualified as judges 10 years ago when this piece of s h i t show started. The other, of course, is a British jackass who NEVER was a singing artist and has no right to even be a judge bein ghe never was an artist. They are paid puppets by the big conglomerate record companies, like Warner Music and Universal, and they keep talented local artists all over America from having a chance to become famous than like back in the 70,80s and 90 earlier in my life, before the turn of the century, when local artists had the opportunity to prove themselves on the local level and get played on local stations and worked their way up and EARNED IT FAIR AND SQUARE. Today that is over and ever damn singer famous, just about, goes through American Idol and it is wrong. This is what is screwed up with America today. I have never watched one show of American Idol in my life, because anyone like Simon, who ridicules contestants in NOT a professional and has no business being shown as a FAMILY VALUED SHOW and the peopel that support it as family value are hypocrites because it is in a sense shock TV. Simon provokes a fight with his insults and the contestants sometimes say insulting remarks back - now is that appropriate for your children to watch! Simon gives the show shock TV value and that is all it is no different than these other damn reaity trash shows just for high ratings profiting him and the owner of American idol and Fox TV network. If you are a local singing artist today, America is NOT any longer the land of oppotunity because everything is run by either this show or whether your daddy is a CEO, like Jessica Simpson or Miley Cyrus, both who have no talent watsoever in singing and inherited their fame. This is why today's airwaves are full of crap and even most of today's children like our music before their time of life of the 80s and 90s much better than today's fecal art of the gangster rap, pop, county metal music and other trash of America out there on the radio. Bring back the 1900s music and ditch the 2,000s decade music, with the exception of very little music of this decade - Venessa Carlton is one of the few I can only think of right off hand.
Sep 5th 2009 4:38AM This is ONE MORE reason to BOYCOTT the media networks. ALL of the new journalists replacing the older ones are immateur dumb young men and women that flirt with each other on the set and do informal commentary while reporting and they are not professionals at all. They rely on blogs like right here as news and they are corrupting the media. News is not just reporting facts like it was before the turn of the century, which is what the profession of journalism should be and anchor people. News has become more trash now and we shoudl all stick to PBS (Public braodcasting System) to get our news if it keeps going downhill like it has been doing the last ten years. CNN's 2nd channel, Primetime news, used to be Headline news, and 24 hours of just reporting the news and no opinions and older professional educated people and not morons like today's prety young models right out of hollywood or fashion business. I will start watching British Broadcasting Channel (BBC) if the American joke media continues the way it is.
Sep 4th 2009 4:39AM Was Shakira in heat when she wrote this song - just kidding, but the lyrics sound so much like it as she rolepays preying on single guys and gives single men like me fantasy thoughts. If ever there would be a way to appeal guys to buy your music this would probably be it, and this is one of the few decent songs of modern music with a good melody, although other parts are not so great - overall not bad. These other artists, OTOH, totally suck with their gagnster rap, pop, country/metal music mixture. Today's music is a joke with Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton and these rich America republican snobs - we should make a deal with Colombia in exchange for Shakira. They can have several pieces of American crap for the price of one quality latin babe.
Sep 3rd 2009 6:28AM This law is so insane and extremely oppressive, even all time evil Adolf Hitler did not support this stupid idea. If that is the case THEN we should neuter or castrate all priests or nuns, since they are forbideen to have sex by their religion. We would have to outlaw alll adult entertainment, including PG rated swimwear models. I don't know of any country that does this. I have zero tolerance for a facist that goes to that extinct and we should outlaw even this idea and incarcerate anyone who expresses such a radicle idea against people's personal rights.
Aug 26th 2009 2:23AM LS how idiotic saying it won't affect kids because of graphics 3D games. You think the laws of physics in these 3D real like viewing games are anywhere near REALITY. Grand Theft Auto is just a game. This is reality and you cannot apply computer graphic games to reality. Personally I think the cellphone companies are to blame for making text message features on them and oher IMs where kids are constatly playing aroun and it is just as dangerous as drunk driving. In the 90s we had cellphones for emergencies or important purposes and we got help and assistance just like today when they were simply electronic text displayed phones without being computerized but the corporate phone companies needed to make a business for mobile phonesjust because of the time of tech change improvement that happns overtime and even turned them into internet tools while people are driving. The greedy phones companies of the 21sat century turning them into computers has lead to more unsafe driving and nwo auto insurance rates are going up. Had we kept the technology primitive we would have less highway fatalities today and we would be spending less money on insurance and phone bills. People got around in before cellphones when trouble occured before the 90s and we were much better economically back then, taking into account the adjustment of the dollar value back then to today's value. In the 80s we drove and survived without even cellphones. Why do cellphones have to be computerized. keep them simply for calling and bring back the original text display phones with directory listings and emergency features. People do not need to drive around with mobile computer phones, today called cellphones. We didn't 20 years ago and we survived just as well back then.
Aug 25th 2009 4:05PM This is NOT an AOL news source. This is just some stupid b_i_t_c_h journalist named Sarah Gilbert giving an opinion presented like it's a damn news report. I couldn't give a damn about Fiji and their corrupt government right now after eight years under Bush who corrupted our country far worse and since AOL went almost bankrupt 3 years ago, all of it's news sources now are paid sponsors, mostly GOP sponsors paying AOL more now that they are completely out of power giving false information, but AOL needs these sponsors to keep them existing since it lost most of it's customers the last five years. Obama can drink, smoke or do whatever the hell he wants on his private time. Obama was not the ass_hole that started the mess in iraq and murdered 100,000s of civilians, just adding to Saddam's count, and also killing over 4,500 of our own troops and wasted over one trillion of our taxdollars for tat stupid most senseless war ever in American history. This war has cost usmore money than Vietnam. Obama did not signed the Visa for Work program with both houses being republican giving blank check, like what happened six years under Bush when he did not veto one damn bill, breaking history of a president go to that long given blank checks. Bush's Visa for Work program took away millions of American jobs and sent them to China, India and the rest of Asia and the nazi republican lobbyist paying AOL are writing B.S. to try to justify Bush's corrupt trade with Saudi Arabia and terrorist nations that added and abetted bin Laden, when bush gave him and HIS WHOLE DAMN FAMILY safe haven after 9-11 and never went after him or his network but instead started a disaster in Iraq. Screw you Daily Finance and your GOP journalists. Obama is still supportede by most Americans, even among WHITES nationwide so STFU you neocon rednecks. You had your eight years and you nearly destroyed America.
Aug 21st 2009 2:17AM middleclass misfit - oh you BELIEVE she was 19. She was 22. Do a search on it moron. She was 22 WHEN the affair started in 1995-1996 and besides that, 19 is legal age of consent anyway ANYWHERE in America, so it would not matter. The age of consent for sex is no higher than 18 in any state or under federal law. You cannot buy alcohol and gamble and do not have full priviledges until you are 21 but you are fully a legal adult for consensual sex of ANY KIND by 18 YEARS old. You do know that 22 is greater than 18 right, or have you not learn to count that high yet.
Aug 20th 2009 12:45AM Since they elect governors based simply on looks, why didn't they put this hot singer up? She is more intelligent and prettier than Palin. At least this girl could tell continents from countries and would know basic geography. She would have done the interest of Alaskans. At first I thought it was Jewel speaking out when I read the headlines. She is the real famous one from there. Since Palin resigned now we take the title of worst governor in the USA - Heil Haley from Mississippi :((
Aug 20th 2009 12:11AM Glenn beck is the worst most bigoted talk show host in all of America. He is even worse than evil hearted Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or any of the others. He came from a young life of REAL narcotic drugs and crime and got a job based on who he knew at a Philadelphia station as a loud mouth jerk. Glenn Beck is a no good facist just eat up with hatred a black man beat the GOP's ass fair and square by over 6% of the popular vote in the election. Now rememeber this was the same son of a bitch that mocked all resident refugees of New Orleans after Katrina for taking food (water, bread, careal, crackers, etc.) just to survive (NOT ALL looters were stealing laptops computers, clothes, TVs, etc - some necessities to LITERALLY survive) when he was working for even a LIBERAL network, CNN, and BTW CNN is owned by Turner Broadcasting System, which is a republican conglomerate that owns CNN now and hired Beck. Now Beck has the nerve to whine and complain about a president elected by MAJORITY, YES MOST AMERICANS, just because he is of color. Glenn Beck you hypocrite piece of s h i t what goes around comes around f'ing ass hole - deal with it - black is the new president so STFU you bastard. The only endorsements Beck will get is from no good uneducated skinheads, secret nazis, and jew haters who supported the holocuast and love Mel Gibson.
