    Re: Paula Deen Fired

    Paula was not "fired" in the sense of the word. Her contract was not renewed. It is a little different than being dragged in and fired. Also, she is a media person, and they have image requirements to sell their product to networks. This is not legal terms regarding her discrimination or not, this is about whether or not her image was badly damaged and her brand harmed. This is also not her only problem in that area after her diabetes incident. It is not a big surprise they didn't want to renew her contract. The word fired is tossed around by the wannabe victims of persecution who were never actually victimized, and probably by those people who want to seem tougher on her actions to please those offended. It still does not change the reality they simply said no to a new contract and did not drag her in and fire her ass. Part of the fun of being a contracted worker is that it becomes really easy to get rid of someone when their contract is up without going through the problems of firing a person.

    I figured out that you mad a false statement. Glad to see you admit that you did.

    He said he wouldn't buy a book endorsed by the KKK, not a steak cooked by them. You do know the difference?
    I wouldn't stop eating KFC because the KKK likes or dislikes them.

    Too little intelligence in today's society.

    Too much importance is put on appearances in today's environment.
    Said he would consider eating kkk steaks in response to the book comment. This is the post I quoted earlier.

    Here's his quote again for reference...

    That statement says he wouldn't buy a cook book endorsed by the KKK just because they make good steaks, not that they wrote the cook book or he'd eat their steaks. You really don't understand it do you?


    My sister and her husband say racist comments all the time and I haven't disowned them. I can't help what others think or say and if I ignored everyone that said something ignorant I'd be very lonely. Self righteousness indeed.

    No. Apples and oranges are both fruits and they are not the same. British and American are nationalities and they are not the same. "Eat" and "drink" are both verbs and they are not the same. "Stupid" and "ugly" are both considered insults and they are not the same. Jaguar and Ford are both car companies and they are not the same. Tables and seats are both types of furniture and they are not the same.

    Just because two things belong to the same category does not make them the same. "Nigger" and "honkey" are both slurs and they are not the same. They never will be. Ever. When you integrate meaning and context into your life, you will get that.

    That's what "progressive" means as a political affiliation: progressive racism, progressive taxation, progressive intrusion.

    Depends on if the food is worth a damn, or not. If there's a 300 lbs. black woman, with a Cajun accent, in the kitchen whippin' up sauce pecan', gumbo and rice dressing (w/o liver), then I'll be standing in line to get into the Ku Klux Klown Steakhouse.

    Too much uptightness in today's society. It's the PC crowd that give authority to the Ku Klux Klowns and their spinoff orginizations.
