Comments on Beyonce & Shakira video

Wow! I usually do not strongly disagree with someone like this but I could not believe your comments. Not knocking on Beyonce by any means because she is awesome but to say that Shakira has a lack of talent??? Shakira was very successful as a Latin artist before ever crossing over to the English speaking versions. She has sold over 50 million albums worldwide! Oh and as far as the lasting longer, Beyonce might and that would be great for her but it's not like Shakira just popped up. Her first album was released in 91.  (Mar 27, 2007 | post #35)

Toyota to build Miss. SUV plant

I do agree with you. I am very thankful that we are so fortunate. By the way, I am from Mantachie. I can't help but think that it will help the surrounding counties including our own.  (Mar 7, 2007 | post #80)

Welcome to Mississippi. Proud that you love it here. It is a pretty nice place to call home. I travel as much as I can but always love to get back here.  (Mar 6, 2007 | post #11)

Kabul, Afghanistan

Afghan Media: U.S. Troops Deleted Images

I do agree with you. By no means do I think that you are wrong. I just know that with the hatred that we have already developed from other countries and groups, it is going to be much harder to live in peace in our own country.  (Mar 5, 2007 | post #60)

I do agree. We, the taxpayers, are supporting a lot of people. It just makes the load more to bear for those that do abide by the law. I do not have anything against any race or group of people. Everyone living in America though should pay taxes. What is good for one person is good for all.  (Mar 5, 2007 | post #7)

Kabul, Afghanistan

Afghan Media: U.S. Troops Deleted Images

This is a bad situation and a bad move by the troops. I am sure that these soldiers were working under direct orders but our country, no matter how much we love it, is becoming more hated everyday by so many different people and countries. I feel that instead of us "stopping " terrorism, we are opening up the flood gates for more terrorist activity from other groups. What are we going to do then? Everyone will be a suspect. EVERYONE.  (Mar 5, 2007 | post #54)

I do agree with you. There is no excuse for anyone acting this way. No excuse.  (Mar 5, 2007 | post #2)

Mississippi is nothing compared to states such as Texas, California, New Mexico and Arizona. We do have a problem with the tax dollars that are spent due to this. If everyone in this country paid taxes, this would stop some of these issues.  (Mar 5, 2007 | post #5)

Teacher Allegedly Cuts Boy's Tongue

Hmmm....I don't think we are on the same page with each other about the statement that you had made. I hate to say but I don't understand what you are talking about or where it came from. The statement that I had made was in response to parents not getting on to their children but yet wanting to be their friend(s). When I had stated that parents should look in the mirror, that was a reference to the attitudes that children develop often come from their environments. I did not understand the "Watcher " remark or furthermore the rambling about Med. school. Sorry. You lost me there.  (Mar 5, 2007 | post #55)

Teacher Allegedly Cuts Boy's Tongue

Teachers get a bum rap all of the time. They are "in most places" very underpaid and unappreciated. So many people are quick to point the blame that the teacher is doing something to their "precious " child when in reality it is usually the child just needing to be brought up better at home. When a child gets in trouble at school, the parent shouldn't lay blame on the school or teachers. Maybe the parent should look in the mirror.  (Mar 2, 2007 | post #34)

Myspace blog marketing

I know that I will probably open a floodgate by asking this, but I am wondering if anyone on here has actually made money through their blogs. Better yet, I would like to know about myspace marketing.  (Mar 2, 2007 | post #1)

Teacher Allegedly Cuts Boy's Tongue

I'm really shocked by this story. First, even if the teacher was "joking, " a pair of scissors should never be placed near a child's face, not to mention in a child's mouth. I'm in disbelief that a teacher could act this way. Everyone is making jokes about this but there is more than one serious issue in this story. The teacher is one story but what about the child, or the children of today in general. I am not saying that all children are bad, I know better. I do remember growing up hearing my fellow classmates say that when they grow up that they wouldn't treat their kids the way they were treated. A lot of parents of today actually stuck with this too. We have so many parents that want to be their children's friends instead of being their parents. This is what is causing a moral decay in our society today. Many parents do not spend enough time parenting. They send their kids to school and expect teachers to raise them and then the parents want to complain when the children get in trouble!! Respect starts at home. Discipline starts at home. Family values are being lost. More people need to sit around the dinner table together and get back in touch. I'm through preaching now. Everybody have a great day.  (Mar 2, 2007 | post #31)

The Dark Side of Teen Goths

Everyone knows that "studies, " as they are called, can be swayed to produce any type of result that one needs for their particular platform. I know plenty of people that others would call "goth." They do not sulk around and are very mentally competent. People really need to learn to quit labeling people by appearance and/or the way someone dresses. Get to know people before judging.  (Mar 1, 2007 | post #401)

Elton John wants religion banned

Sorry for any offense taken there. I just don't understand why famous people use their fame to stand on a soapbox and "preach" about something as vast as religion. How can he say that it should be banned and that it does not work? His comments are directed to people according to their homophobia. People make decisions on how they feel. Religion does not always force this on everyone (although I must admit that some religions do, but not all.)  (Mar 1, 2007 | post #4257)
