Nov 6th 2009 2:01PM Boy, from day to night. You portray Mickey Mouse as this lovable mouse with great morals and values, next thing, its a complete 360. Hmmmmm. How do we expain this to the kids. Then confusion sets in. I honestly think this will hurt Disneys Reputation as so many like us go there each year to enjoy family time where great magical things can happen. I sure would not allow my children to see an excibit like this if it were to be at Disney. It goes against what we are trying to teach. Sort of the DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO. DISNEY, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING.
Nov 5th 2009 4:32PM I think what they are meaning is not use the water out of your toilet!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most of us would know that, why they listed clean water, I am not sure, COMMON SENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nov 3rd 2009 11:29AM As far as her divorce, she has a cakewalk compared to so many single moms who struggle to feed, cloth and keep a roof over their families heads. If all single moms and dads had to worry about was negative comments, it would be a day at the beach. People who are in the spotlight or those who are just the average "joes" will still be judged, its a sad given. No one wants to hear about it anymore, John wants to stay out of the public eye, Kate wants her kids protected, but evereday, here or on tv, I see them. ENOUGH
Oct 29th 2009 10:41PM I was very surprised when Kate was aggreable to having dogs, this being said as how upset she gets when the kids get dirty or in past episodes a blow out diaper and a messy crib sheet, I saw as she struggled to bathe and deal with that. Dogs are an extended part of ones family, they are your kids in a way and they take as much work and devotion as your chldren. I am glad I won't have to see them air their dirty laundy anymore. I did enjoy the show before all the drama started. They both need to be focused on the well being and needs and sensativities of the children. Divorce is a hard thing for children to deal with. It seems like a tug of war still with John and Kate. I hope they can focus on doing what is best for the children and helping them adjust during this change.
Oct 29th 2009 5:23PM I am just curious how those on foodstamps will be able to afford the membership fee?? We were on foodstamps when my husband got laid off after 17 years and as we were on foodstamps we both worked low paying jobs and my husband went to school after his work. We were lucky we could afford food for the kids, we aren't talking steak or any of that stuff, we are talking mac and cheese 7 days a week and cereal and milk, if we could stretch it. I know we struggled and never would we have been able to afford a membership to get into shop. I guess we would have had to piggy back off of someone elses card. Hmmmmmm, sounds like what will most likely happen here, hard to tell, mabe they will need their own cards, how about making the fee affordable for all of us? 50 dollars a year is a big chunk. And to the comment about what it has to do with income tax, a lot of folks wait for their refund to put towards a membership, pay lingering medical, and so forth. I know we will be buying tires and putting brakes on both cars, our yearly scenerio we do with our refund. Remember, we are all struggling to make it, so please don't assume all of us are "loosers" or illegal folks.
Oct 15th 2009 4:50PM The show was cute in the beginning, then it wasn't so cute. Who wants to see a family air their dirty laundry on TV??????? All this has caused is judging and speculation by so many people that don't have all the facts. I am not there so who Im I to judge????????????? Gosh, I would not someone to judge me by heresay. If they are truly going through a messy divorce, the kids need kept out of the spotlight, not thrown in the shark tank.
Oct 15th 2009 1:53PM For the comment about needing to plan, folks did, they put into their 401k and other investments that tanked thanks to the good intelligent folks on wallstreet. They didn't ask for incompetents to make unwise choices, but it happened. We are 2 well educated adults who have 2 children. We are in our mid 40's and lower 50's. We are making sure we are savers, but sadly if you don't put some part of your monies under your mattress, look out. Social Security is to help supplement your investment, sadly those who had good investments that plummeted, they couldn't predict that, otherwise those same smart savvy savers would have seen it coming and moved their monies elsewhere. You do what you think is in your best interests, and that always doesn't work out. Remember two words, BERNIE MADOFF, ENOUGH SAID.
Sep 16th 2009 4:26PM We used to be, used to be faithful blockbuster fans, then in our area the customer service was falling behind, the movies were going up in price, and the numbers crunched told me I needed a new way. I went to the library and also rented from a different movie vender who had prices half the amount, also we would split the cost with a neighbor, now I don't rent at all, we have been watching movies on our new cable privider and saving a good amount of money. It may not seem like a lot each month, but when I think about the holidays and that amount stashed from January to November, its a good amount to spend on the holidays. You do what you need to do to stay in check with your finances. It doesn't surprise me they are closing, there is to much competition and simply those who just cannot afford it anymore.
Aug 16th 2009 12:40PM I think they have made more than their share of money. Its becoming more about greed on both of their parts. The kids are paying the ultimite price for this one. I am not one to point fingers but it sure seems like John is on a how many girls can I get this week, spree. Kate has her share of issues but it seems like her focus is on her children and making herself known in the eye of the public, you don't hear her talk about her beau if indeed she is seeing someone. For once I am seeing her exercise good judgement focusing on the children. You saw Kate camping with the kids and doing a fun activity. You see John talking to I am sure one of many ladies on his cell while the kids are being watched by a nanny. If all of you recall on the show announcing the split, John quoted he would be focusing on the kids, well that just isn't happening. Lets get them of TLC and make room for more shows that show good family morals and not a competition of John and Kate.
Aug 5th 2009 4:03PM No one has a smith and wesson pointing at them in the marriage. John could have opened his mouth at any time. He chose to let kate berate him. She is who she is. For John to introduce his new beau to those kids soon is so selfish. He is wanting them to know what is good for him. How about having a little sensitivity for the kids and take their feelings into consideration. I will not be watching that show. I will continue to watch the Duggers who are hard working parents and have true family morals and put their families before matarial things. If you listen to Kate, she is the goddess who has to have all the bells and whistles. John included. You don't see the duggers going out to pick out his and her Harleys, you see them going to another family and taking the time to help build an addition on for their families. This is a true family. This is what I want my kids to see. Not competition between Kate and John.
