Nov 2nd 2010 5:13AM Silly Girl. Those of us who have watched and cheered the Giants on all season know that the best TEAM did win! It wasn't that they 'got hot' it was that they did what they have been doing all year: finding ways to beat you.
Nov 2nd 2010 1:20AM Like F.P. Santangelo said on the radio, for all the people who called the division and league series against the Giants, and the World Series too, the players can order their rings for their MIDDLE fingers! They battled and WON and they deserve it for so so many reasons. The are all MVPs in my mind!
Mar 2nd 2007 1:10PM Tatiana - agreed!
I remember back in the 70s when we called those people "Sunday Christians". Show up at church once a week, go through the motions, and then go back to your regular life of greed, dishonesty, infidelity, whatever. They gave Christianity a bad name. Still do.
Mar 2nd 2007 1:05PM Mo - ok so with the question clarified, I would have to change my answer.
I think you would find Jesus serving meals in the food line at Glide Memorial Church in SF 3 times a day, helping people in the rehab programs, the job re-training, or any one of the many many (over 50) programs which that particular church administers, that make it a pretty good candidate for 'which church' (when speaking of institutions although I believe that NO CHURCH has the corner on the Christianity market) Jesus would belong to. It's a daily affirmation of the Christian spirit. Everyone is welcome there.
My sense of Christianity and what Jesus taught was to love others, and to make one's life a shining example of his teachings, doing God's work. Isn't he the one who taught us that 'what you do to the least of us, you do to me as well?'
And if you've ever visited any of the Catholic churches in Europe, the centuries-old ones, that are dripping with gold and silver and other symbols of that church's oppression and dominance over the lives of people for over 20 centuries, you might think twice about putting them high on your list.....
Mar 1st 2007 8:37PM OK last post here in response to Michelle, Lindsay, and all of you other fine folks.
I just think it's getting old to run out the same ol' generalizations -- you know, liberals this, and conservatives that -- and lose the point of the discussion in the process.
I teach, and I encourage my students to look at things like this critically, but as someone wrote, instead of addressing the issue, all I find on the blog is people throwing out their opinions of liberals or conservatives, and I simply wanted to comment on that.
Honestly I have a great sense of humor and love to laugh. This wasn't particularly funny to me, just an exchange between a vacant blonde and a jokester.
Glenn Beck made a comment that some people found funny (my opinion: kind of a dumb thing to say, dude) and she either didn't hear it or didn't get it (hard to speak for her), and since aol is only showing us about 10 seconds of the exchange, it's hard to make a real educated response. So I can't really speak to the humor, or lack of it.
I find Glenn Beck a little annoying, not worthy of much more thought than that. His opinions are generally pretty unfounded, but he gets this smug kind of smile when he puts them out, that I find irritating. So I could be biased in that I just don't like him or care to hear him spout his opinions out.
But it doesn't really matter to me if he's a conservative or a liberal. Idiots abound on both sides of the spectrum.
And the person who equated the outrageous with making ratings go up... right on. THAT'S really the point of this exchange and of the photos on the internet.
Old story, new faces, ho hum.
Mar 1st 2007 6:54PM Just wondering Michelle, how you see this as a liberal/conservative thing?
I'm a conservative, with a M.A., and pretty strong 'family values' just like many of my 'liberal' friends. I simply find the guy annoying and pretty low on the food chain. Someone I would walk away from at a party if he started talking to me. It really isn't about his politics, and I don't see too many of the comments being based on that. For some reason, you are choosing to spin it like that, which is your privilege, but at some point this country needs to be able to talk about issues without going to the labels all the time! Really!
Surely you aren't suggesting that *all* conservatives like Glenn Beck? Or that *all* liberals don't?
Anyway he's not on FOX, he's on CNN, which draws people from both sides of the spectrum.
Mar 1st 2007 5:30PM Oh PLEASE, the BEST? Glenn Beck? Now, THAT's funny!
This is a lot of hooey about a really irrelevant guy. It's too bad CNN gives him the air time. And the money. I imagine he IS laughing all the way to the bank.
Honestly Glenn Beck strikes me as the guy who stands around at a cocktail party making stupid comments about things he really knows nothing about, and laughs at his own jokes, while other people laugh at him, not with him, and hardly anyone takes him seriously. A few people maybe think he matters(reflected here in the few positive comments) but really, he's just IRRELEVANT.
Like the guy said, NOTHING to see here folks. A non-event.
Jul 24th 2006 3:41AM ...you have GOT to be kidding....
