So if it was you making the money, it would be OK because, of course, you would give all your money away to the poor and needy right? How much have you donated in the last 5 years?? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE????

Read a book, and turn off this trash, they call entertainment these days. Between this crap, and remaking TV shows from the 70's the folks haven't had an original thought in years.

Let's not even talk about the fluff news and bias.

Read a book, go for a walk, clean the basement. Anything but this intelligence draining garbage.

I do give my money to the poor and I always have.
Materialism is crass and selfish.

By the way, perhaps you should try taking grammar classes.

Oh Sandy:#1 - I believe you about as far as I can throw you.#2 - You've resorted to being the grammar police - that's very 6th grade-esque of you. What's next, name calling?

I think this is great! I worked for Jessie's dad Dr. Conners a few years ago and met Jessie a few times. Jessie really is a very sweet, giving person, and had made a name for herself on her own merits, without help from another soul. She's also a lot smarter than many people I know with multiple college degrees.

One thing the interviewer didn't mention were the many years that Jessie has spent volunteering with her dad's annual missionary trips to Mexico. Jessie wouldn't go around harping about the giving she does--that's not her style. It's just a part of her life and how she was raised.

I for one would never pay to shop on-line. This is a business model that is sure to fail.

Her father is a doctor? Funny, she said she grew up poor and showed us a picture of a broken down trailer and stated she grew up there without electricity or running water and then went on to say when she made her fortune she got her parents out of that place....
