A kid doesn’t just get all F’s without some underlying factor. One thing I also know for sure is, public humiliation isn’t going to solve the problem.

I wholeheartedly agree. I’ve thought about what you said there myself. My dog died after 9 years of cancer, and even I was shocked at how hard I took it. I’m a grown man, and I cried like a baby.
I mean, I’ve had family members die and I didn’t take it as hard. Yes, I was sad they died, but it was a totally different level of grief I felt for my dog.

So I was in a parent-discussion group yesterday, and people were asked to bring up questions/concerns about their kids. One lady talked about her 6 year old who has now developed a keen interest in throwing things, especially valuable things like their cell phones. When they get upset with him the kid just laughs and does it again.
While all the other parents, included the parent educator were all talking about, “umm… ignore his behavior, put him in a time out…” and other b.s, I’m sitting there thinking, “what that kid needs a good old fashioned butt-whopping! MY kids would never do stuff like that!
I very rarely spank my kids. But when I do, it’s always with my hand, and have never left a mark. They know when I spank them, it must be bad, and I’ve rarely had to do it more than once for the same behavior. Of course, I dare not suggest spanking to the group as that’s no longer socially acceptable. No wonder kids nowadays are terrors.

That’s a HUGE check!!! But if you were married to someone worth $8Billion for 26 years, I’m sure you could do better than that.
She needs to at least get enough to land herself on the Forbes list. A mere $1b isn’t going to cut it. Hold out for more!!!

How could you not just love this guy?! I mean, seriously!

Nobody forced her to put herself out there. It would have been easier for her to simply decide to do this quietly without putting her face on the news. She did it because she wanted the attention. Those who want to promote doctor-assisted suicide across the country thought she would make a great tool for pushing their agenda.
Yes, I am well aware of what a heart wrenching decision it must be. Unfortunately, there’s are millions of people around the world living with terminal illness. What makes her so brave for publicly opting for suicide? As far as I’m concerned, it’s people who decide to fight it to the bitter end… THOSE are the brave ones, not someone who’s chosen the easy way out. In fact, when this woman’s story came out, there was another story out there about another woman who survived a similar diagnosis. Where there’s life, there’s hope.
Besides, as I predicted, she’s seemingly not going through with it anyway… how “brave” is that? Her story was nothing but means to push an agenda. Nothing more.

When the story was first on this site, my comment was that I bet she doesn’t go through with it November 1st. Well, I guess I was right. She just wanted to get her name out there and be the suicide poster child, but I knew given that she was still well enough to enjoy things, she’s not going to just end it. I knew it right from the start!
So if i get this, your most important contribution to this discussion is how you knew all along this dying woman who is suffering greatly, was a poser who wanted her 15 minutes before she passes to the great beyond? Is that what you're about? I am so proud of you for being right!
The only thing that would be more apropos for this situation is for you and her to magically be able to switch places so you can then, from a position of living it as opposed to running your mouth about it, tell us how it feels then. Don't like that suggestion? Bet the poor woman who has no Earthly future doesn't like her situation either.
I'll bet if her shoes were on your feet your "calmglass" would be rippling and shattering with fear. How bout that?
The cynic in me agrees with you. Actually, the cynic in me thinks this may have been a publicity stunt. The hopeful side makes me think she had a change of heart. I'm letting the hopeful side win for now.
Quite the self righteous and condescending little jerk you are, aren't you? And woefully ignorant to boot. For the life of me I cannot understand why you seem to feel that the decision to end ones life is something to be taken lightly. Like any rational adult I'd imagine that this is probably the most difficult choice that she will ever make. Of course leave it to a conservative to make snide remarks about a dying woman

Thing is, absolutely nobody’s mind was changed by that exchange. If you agree with Jon Stewart, you still did after the exchange… same with O’Reilly. So, the exchange was completely pointless.

I just have a hard time believing she’s going to go through with it come November 1st. Especially if she’s still relatively able-bodied as she seems to be.

You’re an idiot.
It wasn’t about curing cancer. There’s a player on the opposing team who’s young daughter is going through cancer treatment. A very difficult thing to go through. What they were doing is essentially saying to him, “we’re here for you, and hope your daughter gets well soon”
It’s not about a cure for cancer. It was a show of support for a father going through a very difficult time in his life, you moron.

$25,000?? That’s like us regular folks digging through our couches and finding a couple of quarters, donating it to cancer research and announcing it.
If he’s going to donate just $25K as the multi-billionaire that he is, he should just keep his mouth shut.
Wow!! This stuff is AMAZING!!! This is the greatest set of pictures I’ve ever EVER seen!
I’m just so…. so…. so… mesmerized!

I very much agree that some kids need to be spanked. I was hit with thin tree branches, belts, wooden spoons…etc while growing up but *never* hard enough to break my skin and have blood coming out, and certainly never with my clothes off for maximum impact.
As a firm believer in corporal punishment, I think Peterson crossed the line into child abuse. That kid is only 4 years old. Removing the kid’s clothes and whipping him all over so hard that he was drawing blood crossed the line. Unfortunately, I think that’s likely how Peterson himself grew up which is why he thought it was ok.
Now, should he lose his career over it? I think that would be excessive. I think he should be suspended for a few games, and let me know child abuse is not OK. If he loses his career over this, I think everyone loses (his family/kids, and football fans who recognize he’s the very best RB in the league).

I think it’s pretty clear what’s happening here. She’s in an abusive relationship, but the guy WAS making millions of $$. So she probably consoled herself though the relationship by being able to acquire “stuff”
With him essentially being banned from the NFL, that’s all gone. If he’s like a lot of young/rich athletes, he probably spent the money as fast as it came in… so they’re in real trouble financially. To that extent, I do feel sorry for her.

Ok, someone tell me why this made the news here! So two cyclists slap each other while riding a bike in a race in some far away country that nobody gives a rat’s rear end about.
Take your Med's Bud.... YOU clicked on the thread.. Good Grief !!!
It shows how two men can act like 6 years old's! And your right who cares to see juveniles using each other a punching bag!
Because watching road cycling is just about the most boring sporting event in the world to watch. Every little side event there is a BIG BIG DEAL!! Now mountain biking, bmx, stuff like that are actually fun to watch.

I would say careless driving because, the driver did pull into the bike’s path. I see it this way: The driver was going to turn, he looks for oncoming traffic, see’s a bike far away and figures, “oh I can make it in time” not know that the bike is going close to 100MPH.
So, yes the driver was careless and should have waited for the bike to go. But obviously, the biker was going way too fast.

Geraldo is so full of it. When he gets called out on his b.s, then he goes on a tirade about how many years’ experience he has.
So, every black jury would find for the “gentle giant’s” side and all white jurors would be on the cops side? How stupid is this guy? If it’s that simple, how does ANY case get decided in this country where different races are involved? How did black jurors find Zimmerman “not guilty” in the Trayvon case?
There were no Black jurors on the main panel otherwise it would have been a hung jury. The lady who came out later and said she believed he was guilty by voted not guilty was Hispanic. Sorry but Geraldo is right.

I do like Chipotle, but I definitely think their steak is overrated. I almost always get the chicken whenever I do go.

So here I am, as a black conservative. Now, if I were a liberal, I’d be pretty ticked off, and label this guy the worst kind of racist… etc. etc. But here’s where I see it:
This guy obviously has little to absolutely NO contact with blacks on a regular basis. As far as he’s concerned, he sees what we all see on the news about black criminals, stealing, mugging, on welfare, single parents, absent fathers, and so on. What’s a redneck living on his 10000 acre ranch supposed to think? Of course, he’s going to think all blacks are like this. He’s so isolated from the rest of the country that he uses the term, “the *****” and doesn’t even flinch! And then suggests “the *****” might be better off being a slave? and said it in public to reporters?? That’s obviously someone completely detached from the 21st century.
So, what I do is dismiss this as total ignorance. And as old as he is, there’s simply no point trying to “educate” him.
I think you are right on point. I don't believe I would use the word ALL, I think his point is living off the government is a form of slavery/dependence. I would suggest the use of the word N3gr03 was due to in the last decade he ever needed to use the word that was the proper word. Completely detached is accurate.
What you say is true, the sad part is that you can get a huge group of people upset and working against their own self interest by throwing out there what some guy said out in the middle of nowhere that has nothing do with nothing.
