    I don't watch those shows either. It would be interesting to be a fly on the wall in their house right now, though.

    I think most things are okay as long as you use common sense and moderation. I'm sure that SOME butter is probably fine, as long as you don't overdo it.

    I just had an annual physical a few months ago and had my cholesterol, blood sugar and thyroid functions checked, and everything was normal, and I do eat butter sometimes on toast and use it a lot for cooking.

    WELL OK THEN ...

    Paula Deen is a Nazi.

    There, I said it.

    (And so is Hillary Clinton)

    One of her sons actually cooks very healthy. He actually takes his mother's recipes and substitutes ingredients to make them more healthy.

    Which clearly stated "she could utter racial slurs". You cited what her brother admitted to, and her admitting to having known about this, doesn't substantiate the *allegation * that she "utter(ed) racial slurs"

    The "she uttered racial slurs" comes in because in the transcript they ask her if she used the n-word when talking about the servers at the party she was planning. In the course of answering, she said she hadn't but admitted that at some point in the (presumed distant) past, she had probably used the word.

    In the minds of some, that became conflated with why she was being sued. You had the chance to both inform someone and help keep the discussion on track. Instead, you chose to contribute to derailing the thread about some flaw that really has nothing to do with the lawsuit or FN's decision to not renew her contract

    For all the differences we've had, I don't think I've ever called you stupid, and I don't think you are. So let me ask you something seriously:

    Which is better - informing other posters of the relevant facts and helping to keep a discussion on track, or proving that someone on the Internet is wrong?

    You should take responsibility for your posts. Just because someone else goes off on a tangent, that doesn't mean you have to follow them.

    Uhh, no, I actually pointed out that it was nothing but an allegation at this point, from my understanding, and for some reason you took issue with that and cited her brother as proof it was true ...

    right, and the court of public opinion is hardly fair, impartial or even rational. I mean, do you think people should be fired due a bunch of morons not knowing what a blackhole is?

    Or getting fired for getting pregnant.

    I just looked through every page here, and didn't see them posted (or at least clearly labeled)

    Again, the situation isn't really comparable.
