Jun 9th 2011 9:27AM To egl1637: It looks like you need help in being able to recognize a question, hence, the proper use of the question mark. And look up the correct spelling for the word,"critisize," as you've spelt it, before slinging hash at someone else while trying to be perfect.
Sep 5th 2010 8:34AM Paula's obviously either a tweenager or teenager. With all of these so-called "reality" shows that are out there now, that's the only basic entertainment that her generation will ever know, and Hollywood loves it. Per the news yesterday, those shows cost a good 75% less to produce, what with no stars' or writers' salaries to pay. And then we wonder why Paula is so excited over it and then "get on her case" when good, solid programming is way before her (and other people's) time. It's time we "get on Hollywood's case."
Jun 5th 2010 9:55AM This goes back to the late 70s/very early 80s, long before TSAs were invented. My mother flew United from Hawaii (where she was living) to the West Coast for a vacation. One of her suitcases never made the trip. The airline told her apparently the suitcase was stolen. A few years later the police busted a theft ring that was operating out of United's baggage handlers. They said it had been going on for years. Many emptied suitcases were eventually found in the area (with trees and bushes, etc.) that surrounded the airport. It was all tied to the United baggage handlers theft ring. So please don't think United doesn't have its own "bad apples." Thoy can be found in any airline as well as the TSA employees, for sure.
Feb 4th 2010 7:36AM If more would just do what I just did (click on the exclamation point to report them), it would help with deleting these comments. I just did, and those comments are now hidden while the board owners review (and then delete) them.
Jan 31st 2010 7:06PM I hate to break it to you, but this is an ignorant comment that also shows no common sense. It's ignorant people who will not let this birth certificate issue die. I have my gripes about this Administration, too, but I also won't tolerate ignorance.
1st, a person who applies to run for president has to go thru a thorough and most complete background check, which would include his/her birth certificate. I guess you have no confidence in the federal agencies who conduct such thorough checks and treat all potential candidates the same.
2nd, ya really think that way back when, as his mother was giving birth, she and hubby decided so many years ago to put together this plot so that he could be the president one day? Think about it, and think about the enormous number of people who'd have to be a part of such a scam over the years, starting right with the hospital staff then involving the Dept. of Health to "fix" the birth record. Then the newspapers'd have to get involved since they'd have to be "bought off," too, because they get their stats info from the hospitals and Dept. of Health for those published birth records. To believe the birthers, while looking at the old copies of those newspapers, which can be found in the libraries, you'd have to think, "Wow, Obama's family even convinced the newspapers to be a part of our scam so our little boy can become president one day."
Then flash forward to the present and get God knows how many more people involved in a scam starting with the feds conducting the background checks of presidential candidates. Think about it. Try to get your common sense working.
3rd, I live in Hawaii. I know first hand what the certificates, both birth and death, look like here. At my age I've seen a lot of people "come and go." As a result, I've also had opportunities to see both birth and death certificates.
The copies that are given to the public look the same except for the obvious differences that signify whether it's a birth or death certificate (i.e., the title stating either "Birth Certificate" or "Death Certificate," the "Date of Birth" vs. "Date of Death," and so on.)
I had to laugh when last year the birthers were listing the characteristics on Obama's certificate that was issued before the governor (yes, the gov., a Republican) ordered the Health Dept. to stop issuing copies to the media because it was getting too crazy, what with such bogus beliefs, mishandlings and abuse of the certificate info.
It's funny because the characteristics the birthers were trying to make an issue of are also the same characteristics on each of the certificates that I've seen. So, I guess those certificates are bogus, too.
If you want to see a copy of his birth certificate, you'll have to talk to the governor, and you better make a good case for wanting to see it because she's also had it with the birthers. And when you're stating your case to her, make sure you sound like you have common sense.
And by the way, it's a bunch of bull crap when you say, "...birth record that I can even get in Hawaii as a tourist..." Even family members have to justify the reason for wanting a copy of a birth or death certificate. There's forms that have to be filled out first and ID's checked. Getting such a certificate isn't like going into the corner store to buy a newspaper. Wise up.
Jan 22nd 2010 4:31PM Actually, Lex, having book smarts doesn't measure one's maturity level.
Bringing up about his educational past doesn't prove anything.
What proves what many of us are saying is seeing it in his behavior. His behavior in itself says it all and doesn't say a lot about Conan.
Jan 12th 2010 10:07PM When my mother and I first heard the announcement that Conan was taking over "The Tonight Show," we knew right away that would be a "death blow" to the show. Conan's humor is an immature type of "humor" that would appeal only to teens and young adults in their early 20s.
Jan 3rd 2010 6:21PM Huh?
I'm also getting tired of all of the whiners who use even the most, the very most unpolitical article to whine on.
Jan 3rd 2010 6:04PM Glenn Beck? LOL, well, your screen name says it all, LOL!
Jan 3rd 2010 5:55PM I hear ya. I don't know anyone who can get their converter box to work, even with the best and most expensive antenna possible. (And how many people can afford to purchase even an inexpensive antenna right now? So a lot of good that coupon from the govt. for the box did.) I'm still betting that it was lobbyists for cable companies that forced the switch, figuring, or hoping, it would increase their earnings with more people having to get cable service now. (I don't have cable, so I put up with the snow and static.)
