May 6th 2011 3:50PM Shame on your for your smugness. Your attitude is why I converted to Hinduism some thirty years ago.... where I found more love and compassion than judgment. Parent's FAULT???? Are you sitting on some celestial throne here?
And to advise her to "Drop out of school" ..... are you nuts?
Sorry .... it takes years to be able to face your tormentors and feel yourself safely in the hands of God. You parents can help and support ... but what if the child doesn't talk about it and keeps it to herself.
I KNOW ... because I was bullied forty years ago. And my Mom was wonderfully supportive ... but that wasn't enough to assuage the pain. I begged to drop out of school .... and obviously wasn't allowed to do so. I hated my school years. And years later have to remind myself that children aren't basically mean .... just some of them. I never had children of my own ... I chose to be childless.
The secret isn't the Bible being rammed down your throat. It's to learn EMPATHY. How about remembering Christ's wonderful words ..." So you do it to the least of them, so you do it unto me...."
Even a Hindu can understand that ....
May 6th 2011 3:39PM Just disgusting. Hijacking a message board for your shabby ads. Think a bit about the bad karma you're setting up for yourself. I'd be very nervous if my attitude put my own welfare before that of a suffering mother. You're no better than those bullies. Pushy and selfish. Shame on you. Take your damned ads elsewhere and conduct your business honestly. This hatefulness can hardly gain you customers.
Mar 25th 2011 6:35AM Another silly Lemon Drop "Women's" piece. These women are all far too young to really know regret in proportion to their whole life. My regrets now at over 50 are a lot different ... and less selfish ... than they were at twenty.
These young girls are still just young girls. Apart from the two mentioning an accident and a suicide .... they will go on with their lives and there will come a certain proportion to life's disappointments. At twenty or twenty-five .... for the most part, they are quoting a first of a long life of regrets. We all make mistakes and we make more than one. We accumulate them and hopefully learn from them as we go along..
Lemon Drop needs a little more maturity in their choices of stories. Or at least in the way they are written and reported. This reads like high school confessions ....
Mar 18th 2011 5:31AM This is the sort of news which should be the headliner for Pop Eater today .... not stupid penis gummi bears in the hands of a spoiled child of fading celebrity "stars".
THIS is what we need to hear. Two lovely young actresses supporting the quake victims in Japan with truly generous gifts. Not the usual paltry ten or twenty thousand publicity stunt. Some real and substantial cash.
When we start to give attention to the good deeds, more people will be encourged to follow suit. Show the generous and admirable and people will respond. Ditch Sheen and Suri and go for the real news.
I can only hope there are so few posts here because the article was filed in the wee hours of the morning. Hopefully more people will read and respond positively ...
Mar 5th 2011 9:31PM Again ...the cheap "switcheroo" journalist's trick. No Target does NOT come out on top .... only when you compare them using SALE prices. Apart from the one catagory which the writer couldn't get the answer she wanted, so she threw in Nicorette. How many people are buying Nicorette weekly?????? Give me a break.
As a budding ;journalist, I was given an extercise which I've never forgotten. I had a subject to write about and I had two lists of facts .... some very positive and some negative. I had to write TWO articles, each using ALL the facts and each of the two coming up with the opposite evaluation. Not easy. But possible. And this showed me how easily a journalist can twist facts to come up with the "correct" or desired conclusion.
Look what they've done with marihuana? Then go online and check out reputed sources, such as the various national associations of medicine ... the AMA or the BMA .. See what the facts are .... and then decide.
And now watch your gas prices rising daily because some media jerks are pulling the panic button over Libya ...which produces only 2 % of the world's oil and sends most of that to Italy. Nonsense. Worry about Canada why don't you. They are the major supplier of oil to the USA. Check it out ...
I'm sick to death of all this manipulation.
Feb 28th 2011 5:03AM My cat licks my arm or hand ... just a few fast licks ... to greet me. When I lie down to sleep. she wiggles under the comforter, locates my arm, gives it five or six licks and then she curls up and goes to sleep. It's very unique and very charming. She's the only cat I ever had which does this .... She's a very overweight Siamese without a tail, whom I adopted from the Humane Society.
Feb 23rd 2011 1:10AM Well here's a prime example of the media manipulating the public into believing something truly unattractive it "hot". She's not just teen-age skinny which is sometimes very charming ... she's scrawny. And she has always een scrawny, with jutting collar bones and horribly stringy arms. A great actress, wonderful in her medieval costumes .... but in bikini .... no way!
Feb 22nd 2011 6:23AM Stupid twit ..... if you look carefully at the photo, you'll see that those "wrinkles" are just the shadows made by strands of hair blowing across her upper chest. A canny portrait photographer would catch this through his viewfinder in a second and shift angles. But this isn't a portrait situation. And that horizontal line ... isn't a "wrinkle", it is a natural fold seen in many people, even babies. East Indian statues of gods and goddesses often show this horizontal crease as a mark of beauty.
Feb 22nd 2011 4:30AM As long as she doesn't choose anything remotely like the catastrophe Princess Diana chose, she'll be fine. Even thirty years haven't dimmed the horror of that dreadful cream puff dress. Mercifully Diana's fashion sense survived intact and for the rest of her life, she looked beautiful and dressed elegantly and well. Kate has her own great style already.
Feb 20th 2011 4:51PM Oh for heavens sake. Spam and scam everywhere ... even this first post above. At least a reasonably intelligent person could weed out this bracelet scam from Day One. How about the "bottled water" industry. One of the single largest nation wide scams. Never mind the waste of money, but the plastic bottle waste should be banned outright.
How about "clinical" trials every second ad boasts about. Any shop or even private apaartment can hang out a shingle with the word "clinic" on it. Wake up ....! And online spam too .... ANY ARTICLE with the request... or threat ... to PASS IT ON ... is scam. NO reputable hospital, scientist or anyone else posting a piece will EVER request it be forwarded.
Gee are we a nation of dummies ...
