Woman sues saying she was denied job as bikini-clad barma...

I did look at the link and I do think she's very pretty, but I definitely agree that the dark lip liner is out of date and she would do better with a lighter shade. And yes, it does make her look ghetto.  (Jan 29, 2009 | post #127)

Um, probably because she was born to Dominican and Puerto Rican parents that probaby speak Spanish in the home. There are a lot of people that pick up on accents if they hang around people that have them enough.  (Jan 29, 2009 | post #108)

Death of pregnant teen is ruled double homicide by Minnea...

First of all Jeff, if you kill someone as the result of a car "accident " (the way you've described it), it's vehicular "manslaughter " or "negligent homicide", not the type of homicide described in this article. And last time I checked, for you to assume that I am the one who's putting "clueless " and "nuts" symbols over your comments, is quite paranoid. For your information, I haven't been doing that, so that must mean that there is some people out there that agree with that assessment of your statements. I don't have to make you look "clueless " and "nuts"; you do a good enough job all on your own.  (Jan 24, 2009 | post #371)

Manners: Are We A Rude Society?

I agree that we, as a society, have just become so self-absorbed and everything is just about us. The majority of people only think about themselves. If they stop to help anyone else, it's to make themselves look good and then they brag about it endlessly. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who has to brag about the good things they have done to help others, doesn't like themselves very much. I also agree that we are a "on the go" type of society now and yes, there is a huge divorce rate but as I've seen it posted here before, we can't use those things as excuses for bad manners and bad behavior. Children learn what they see AND hear. If they see and hear us adults being curtiously to each other and remind them to do it, they will eventually do the same. This isn't rocket science. It doesn't take a genius to figure out how to make our society a little bit better practicing good manners. It doesn't stop with the children either. Adults will pick up this habit too if they are around other adults that practice good manners. You'd be surprised how good it make someone feel to hear that you appreciate them for the littlest things. I know I was when my friend/coworker started telling me that after asking me to do something. This is something that I like to pass on to others. I know that there are a lot of people on this site that believe it's ok to verbally bash people to get their point across and when someone says something about it being wrong, they like to say that person is being a wuss or being wishy washy or some other such nonsense. I personally don't like that our society has grown so disconnected from each other that we think this kind of behavior is ok and a lot of it has been started with bad manners. In my way of thinking, being verbally abusive to someone is bad manners. Last time I checked, OPINIONS are neither right nor wrong, they just ARE. Just because the majority of people agree with my opinion doesn't mean yours is wrong and doesn't give me the right to verbally abuse you and call you names to get you to see things from my point of view. Calling people out of their names is definitely rude and is well too accepted in this society. Bottom line, the more we all make a conscious effort to display better manners, the better off our society will be, even if it's just a little bit. Every little bit helps.  (Jan 24, 2009 | post #36)

First of all, this thread, if I'm not mistaken, is about the sensless murder of a teenage girl who happened to be pregnant, not an abortion debate. Regardless of whether or not the murderer is being charged with the death of the baby, isn't even the point. This girl didn't deserve to die. There is nothing that anyone can say to make me believe otherwise and anyone who takes delight in this girl's death is, in my opinion, just as sick as the bastard that killed her and her child.  (Jan 24, 2009 | post #369)

Yes, to me, it depends on the person and the situation. I am definitely against it as a form of birth control but yes, I do think it should be offered in cases of rape, incest and in medical cases where the mother would die before/during birth. I'm not saying that these people SHOULD do this but it should be able to be OFFERED. And for your information, I have seen the evidence of these procedures and no, it's not pretty or for the faint of heart. Believe me when I tell you that our views are actually closer than you think; I just don't try to justify extreme measures to try to make others share my point of view. I guess you think that it's ok to verbally abuse someone as long as you get your point of view heard. I'm sure you justify ANY kind of abuse for the so-called "abuse" of the aborted babies too.  (Jan 23, 2009 | post #366)

I really do pray that you are wrong. I just don't see God asking you to stop people from "murdering helpless babies" by belittling them and calling them names. I highly doubt that is God's will. I just don't see how you and Speedy are defending and protecting God's will by making remarks that are only designed to hurt (mostly Speedy). The thing about "morality " is that it's all about how we, as individuals, perceive different "morals" . God gave us the "choice" to make decisions for ourselves and we also have to make the "choice" in what morals we are gonna believe in. I personally do not believe in abortion for myself, but it isn't my place to try to force that belief on someone else. I will never truely understand why anyone made the decision to get an abortion unless I have been through EXACTLY what that person has been through. Even then, if our beliefs aren't the same, I may still not understand why that decision was made. I'm sorry, but we, as humans, are IMPERFECT and therefore UNABLE to judge why anyone makes the decisions they do. The bible does not say anything about judging one another, only angels and we are not angels. We are called upon to judge our OWN decisions and what WE believe in, but we are not responsible for everyone else's decisions and God will not hold us responsible for a bad decision someone else made, even if we didn't say anything.I'm sorry, but I just don't believe that.  (Jan 15, 2009 | post #360)

To hard, I couldn't have said it better myself. This is not rocket science people. I understand that some people want to be able to tell their God, come judgement day, that they did something to make a difference. There are some things in this life that we cannot change. People's opinion on the abortion issue will not change. There will always be some for and some against. As I have posted before, if anyone who is against it isn't trying to do anything to get the laws changed and isn't doing anything about it (besides trying to belittle someone), then they have no right to complain. As I also said before, be part of the solution, not the problem. Belittling people is not part of the solution. Minds and opinions will not be changed like this.  (Jan 15, 2009 | post #359)

I pray that you are not right but if you are, that is them (whoever chooses to get an abortion) that will have to stand before God on judgement day. It is not right to try and force your beliefs on another person. That is not my intention to do to anyone else that has read my posts. If any of you feel this way, I truely appologize for that misunderstanding.  (Jan 9, 2009 | post #333)

It's so funny how much of your time you spent quoting these bible verses for me. I really do appeciate that you would take the time to do it though, thank youBelieve me when I tell you that I respect your right to believe that abortion is murder, but as far as I'm concerned, you do not have the right to force your views on others just as we don't have the right to force our views on you. I'm not trying to force my views on anyone and if anyone who has read my posts feels this way, I appologize for that. When I said to tell the parents something that the child has done wrong, I meant mostly something against the law. I appologize again if I failed to make that more clear to some people. Even if I didn't know that child's parents, I would try to find out who they were and let them know what the child was doing. As I said before, it's not up to us to discipline the child, only aid the parent in keeping them on the straight and narrow. As far as MORALS, it's up to the parents to teach them that. The trick is to start teaching them young.  (Jan 9, 2009 | post #332)

You know, they say that it takes a whole village (the CORRECT spelling by the way) to raise a child, for a reason. Our individual communities are very much like these villages in Africa you speak of. So are any of you going to tell me that if you saw a child in your community doing something you thought they shouldn't be doing, and you personally know the parent (or whoever raises this child), that you wouldn't tell this person about what you saw the child doing wrong? That is all this saying infers. What I am saying is that if more people had this attitude, maybe our children wouldn't feel that it's ok to do some of the things they do because they know there would be more people watching than just their parents, like Big Brother so to speak. I'm not saying it's our responsibility to discipline these children; that is the job of the parents. But where is the harm in lending a hand in keeping tabs on them? If we teach the kids young enough that someone is always watching,we as adults talk to each other more and they have a HEALTHY fear and RESPECT for their parents and other adults, they won't do a lot of things they do now. Believe me, I know enough kids to know this to be a fact, between my kids,all my nieces and nephews, and the kids of my friends. We all talked and when any of us saw kids that were doing something they shouldn't, you best believe the parents found out because we told them and we made sure the kids knew we told them. If these children don't feel they can "get away with it", they will be more likely NOT to do "it". The parent wouldn't have to worry about the other adult's word over the kids because it would be more than one adult saying they did "it". We can accomplish so much more by communitcating with kids and each other. When we put each other down for the differences in our views and call each other names like 2 yr olds, we undermine the authority of the adults over all these children. As to Jeff T's response to how "to hard" knows that he and "Speedy" aren't qualified to judge, it's simple, as I said before. YOU AREN'T GOD, IN ANY RELIGION. Neither of you is perfect and therefore not qualified.  (Jan 8, 2009 | post #325)

First of all, nobody "pays" for someone elses "morality ". Apparently you feel that as long as you pay your taxes, you have the right to judge people for what they are or are not doing. As long as you do the right thing for the right reason, it's not your job to worry or judge what the next person is doing. The problems that you are talking about have to do with raising your kids right, with a working knowledge of right and wrong and a sense of morality. We also have a moral obligation to help others raise children to be productive citizens. Only then will you see some of these "problems " start to disappear. I cannot see that happening any time soon though because there are too many people who don't think they should get involved in "other people's business". If this is how you see it, then I should think that you would see it to be your obligation as a tax payer to get involved because your tax dollars pay for all this crap you're talking about. Help be a part of the sollution and not the problem.  (Jan 7, 2009 | post #316)

First of all, last I checked abortion still isn't a crime. As I posted before, WE aren't qualified to judge anyone on a MORAL decision; only our higher power is qualified to do that. Second of all, if you don't like the laws of the land then you should be doing EVERYTHING in your power to change that. Only problem is, ONE person alone cannot change the laws of the land by themselves and not eveybody agrees with your point of view. So my question to you is, what are YOU doing to get the laws changed to make abortion illegal? If you're doing nothing except whining, b!tching and trying to blame others for everything else wrong in your life, then you have nothing to complain about. I don't expect you to understand what it may feel like to be a woman in that kind of position to even make a decision like that, but unless you're doing EVERYTHING you can to change the laws, you need to stop your complaining. You're not God (or whoever anyone else calls their Higher Power) and you have no right or responsibility to judge someone else's morality or the lack thereof.  (Jan 7, 2009 | post #314)
