    You don't have a argument out of me about that. However, you are not going to convince me that my argument is wrong. The vast majority of nasty racist crap I hard on this site comes from the conservative side. And I am not just talking about racial attacks towards blacks. There has been some nasty **** said on this site about blacks, hispanics, muslims, homosexuals, you name it. The only time conservatives say something negative about white american is when they are liberals.

    But hey that cool, everyone has the right to their opinion. But just don't sit here and wonder why minorities don't vote republican.

    Wrong. Even if it was the basis of his argument, then the significance of his argument to this threads' subject matter is essentially nil.

    You could have used the opportunity to point out that the case is not based on what she said umpteen years ago (which is what I've been doing) and thereby inform a poster and help keep the thread on track, or you could focus on another posters logical flaw and thereby help in derailing the thread over an issue that is irrelevant to the lawsuit.

    It's obvious which you prefer

    But getting back to the topic, if she is just a silent partner, that takes no managerial interests in day to day operations, I could hardly fault her morally or see the justification for holding her legally liable. Clearly she would be liable through her financial ties to the restaurant, but that is something different
    It's nice to see you getting back to the topic. Seriously

    So while we're here, I'll point out that she is not a silent partner, and I don't know where you got that idea from. Her testimony in the transcript shows that she was active in day to day operations.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Re: Paula Deen Fired

    My wife and I are something of foodies and watch a good deal of the Food Network. I have to say that Paula Deen was one of our least favorites personalities on the network. Her cooking method seems to make food as unhealthy as humanly possible and load it with as much fat as one can do without eating five pounds of pork belly.

    Her views on her fellow humans are regrettable and her behavior is to be not tolerated by civilized people.

    I am not unhappy to see her go.

    I actually like Paula Dean (at least her food ), but she is a recognize celebrity who represents a network. What do you think would happen.

    Let place it in a environment where a black celebrity was fired. Remember Isaiah Washington when he starred in Greys Anatomy? He was one of the biggest stars on that show and a damn good actor. When he called his co-star a faggot, he lost his job on the show and basically haven't had a good role in years. But that is the consequences when you do stupid things.
    Wow, you proved that conservatives value free speech.

    Good one, "homey".

    I like the Food Network too, but I always changed the channel when she came on. And that one extra show she had was even more unbearable.

    I cannot argue with that for taste. It makes almost everything better.

    Re: Paula Deen Fired

    Yesterday I watched a marathon of BBQ Pitmasters. Wanna see some real cooks? There you go.

    Paula Deen is just an old woman who takes a Betty Crocker recipe, throws in 2 pounds of lard, and serves it up to the cholesterol-laden masses.

    You have to wonder if her boys will survive this. Neither seems incredibly talented nor charismatic and you had to believe they were part of a package deal with Paula towing them behind like a ship towing smaller boats.
