I guarantee you Patti LaBelle only got a mistrial because of who she is and her money. My husband is a defense attorney and primarily does court appointments in small counties. His nonwhite clients frequently face all white juries, regardless of how much he tries not to let it happen. There is a DA in one county who… » 9/16/14 3:54pm Today 3:54pm

At the Macy's I regularly shop in, they relegate the fatties to the section right behind the lingerie around the corner from Men's. Because, you know, we have to be hidden out of sight and all. It's so depressing I'll only go there if I've struck out absolutely everywhere else. » 9/16/14 11:13am Today 11:13am

Yep, she's just like those conservative tools who don't want gay people to get married because they don't know how to explain it to their kids. Like the entire world is supposed to run according those these people's ideas so that they don't have to explain shit to their kids. When I type it out it sounds even more… » 9/15/14 5:14pm Yesterday 5:14pm

I don't see what's so draconian about not exposing midriffs, either. I went to a pretty liberal high school with a very minimal dress code (it wasn't uncommon to see kids in tutus or pajamas or Halloween costumes) and even there bare midriffs for both sexes were out of bounds. I mean, these kids are presumably going… » 9/15/14 3:43pm Yesterday 3:43pm

It's amazing to me. They generally have never held a government job or don't know anyone who has. 'Cause anyone who knows anything about the way government entities work, knows that they are WAY too disorganized (and also busy with actual, you know, WORK) to be able to pull off all these crazy conspiracy theories. » 9/15/14 12:45pm Yesterday 12:45pm

Yep. My 15 pound dachshund would die attacking anyone who tried to get in here without our approval. She is the most vicious little beast I have ever owned. She loves three people in the entire world - me, my husband, and my father-in-law. Everyone else can fuck off and die. » 9/13/14 3:56pm Saturday 3:56pm

Yeah, I saw some of those and really wanted one so I read up about them. And yeah, no, there's really no such thing as a miniature pig. If you feed them correctly (VERY correctly) they can potentially stay small, but most end up growing up into huge hogs. » 9/12/14 4:30pm Friday 4:30pm

Your tip #1 is especially good. I met my husband online, only because I messaged him first. His mother was dying (did not know that at the time) and he had been inactive on the site for a while. I loved his profile and we had a 99% percent match, and I just took the leap and messaged him. » 9/12/14 9:54am Friday 9:54am

Be careful with that. As a person who has struggled with my weight my entire life, it is painfully obvious to me when someone is trying to be "supportive" by forcing me into some random physical activity. As if going for a two mile hike in the greenbelt is going to magically turn me into a thin person and/or spark… » 9/11/14 2:22pm Thursday 2:22pm

Oh absolutely. I also think that certain real (not reality TV) celebrities like Jennifer Aniston who cooperate with the tabloids purposefully to keep their names in the public. Why should we care about Jennifer Aniston now? What movies or TV or anything has she done recently? The Kardashians are the same. That's why I… » 9/10/14 4:41pm 9/10/14 4:41pm
