    A valid point for sure, but given what I know about Rolling Stone magazine, I thought it was a fair assumption. Of course, given all the controversy and outrage surrounding the magazine cover, I am a bit tempted to read the article just to see if people are rightly upset with Rolling Stone or are just making a big deal about nothing. I won't give that rag any of my money though. I'll just try to find it in a bookstore.

    Actually, a good father could use this as a tool to teach their kids how people can often be side tracked by the stupidest things. Especially in the day-and-age of social media. Another non-issue-issue manufactured by faux outrage. "Good Americans" verses those who actually have the audacity to not care about such things. Some folks even have a hard time with the phrase suggesting his family failed him . . . when it was quite obvious, by the brother's actions after the bombing, prove that their family must have failed them in some manner or form. Or, aren't we responsible for raising our children now-a-days? A lot of much about nothing is all I got to say. Who decides what the new Anti-American controversy is going to be? Who is in charge of making this an issue? Seriously, whoever they are . . . they are douche bags of the highest order.

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    [QUOTE=Verthaine;1062074019]Yes you are right,so what is your point?
    A good father wouldn't bring trash into his own home for his kids to be exposed to it.
    A good father is supposed to teach their children not to play with trash themselves.
    A good father is supposed to teach their children to dispose of their own trash.
    A good father is supposed to instill values into their children so that they do not become trash themselves.
    It is not my job to clean up everyone else's trash.
    I'm a chef,not a garbageman.Me and my wife has always ran a "clean" household for our children.
    How other people raise their kids is none of my concern,as long as those little monsters they are raising do not hurt my own children.Then it becomes my concern.

    A good father is not only supposed to protect his children from the trash in the world,but to teach them how to deal with it themselves when they become of age.

    It was because both me and my wife were too busy trying to raise our children to be productive and prosperous citizens to be concerned about who is on the cover of a magazine that our daughters are where they are at now.
    My eldest daughter was too busy trying to get good grades, going to law school,passing the bar exam,landing a job at a large investment firm,striving to get promotions,meeting the man she loves,marrying him,buying a house,having a set of twins and raising my grandchildren themselves to worry about who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    My middle daughter was to busy trying to get good grades,going to college to learn business management,going to culinary school to learn how to be a chef (just like her father),meeting the man she loves,marrying him,becoming the head chef of a nice fancy restaurant,buying a house,and her and her husband saving enough money to open up their own restaurant to worry about who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    My youngest daughter was too busy getting good grades,getting to college,passing pre-med,going to a damn good medical college,and trying to graduate it to worry about who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.

    Me and my wife have taught our daughters to follow their dreams,keep their eyes on the prize,and not let themselves be distracted by such trivial bull**** like who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    That is why we Verthaine's are a prosperous and wealthy family.
    We let others worry about the trash in the world.We are too busy trying to rise above the trash.[/QUOTE]

    If you don't take out the trash it will bury you.

    I am not sure how you can "Like" my last post and then disagree with Verthaine's method of dealing with an issue like this. "Liking" my post must have been a mistake , unless you can explain such a contradictory set of posts. You cannot have it "All Ways". Take your stand . . . and stand by it.

    I have a housekeeper,taking out the trash is part of her job.Just being honest.
    There is nothing wrong with employing a legal American housekeeper and paying her a fair wage,now is there?

    If you want to go out and be the worlds garbage collector,be my guest,Sawyer.
    I'm not going to stop you.
    If you want to put on longjohns,a cape,a mask,call yourself "The Trash Disposer",and engage in a never-ending crusade to rid the world of Evil Trash,more power to you.
    I have other things to do than be your side-kick.
    And don't ask me to be your financial backer.
    I am in the culinary business,not the superhero business.

    I don't allow trash in my home,and me and my wife have taught our children to create as little trash as possible themselves,clean up the trash they do make,and deal with whatever trash other people bring them.
    I've done my job as a parent.We all are leading productive lives,we have good careers,and we live in nice houses.

    I haven't bought an issue of Rolling Stone in my life. The only magazines I read is Restaurant Magazine and Food Network because it's relevant to my career,and Boating Magazine,because I like to go boating.
    My wife reads ESPN magazine,because she likes sports.

    I don't own any stock in Wenner Media LLC (Rolling Stone's Owner).
    So I don't exactly know what you want from us?

    Wenner Media LLC is a privately owned company who can put whoever the hell they chose to put on their own magazine.
    You don't have to buy their magazine if you don't want to.

    Time Magazine once named Adolf Hitler "Man Of The Year".
    Time Magazine is still around ( I see issues of it every time I go pick up my wife from her office).

    If a picture on a magazine piss you off,I don't quite see what you want everyone to do about it?
    What is it that you want ,Sawyer?
    Do you want everyone here not to buy Rolling Stone Magazine?
    Good luck getting that to happen.

    I don't think a lot of the Conservative here read Rolling Stone to begin with.
    The Liberals would probably go out and buy extra copies just to piss you off.
    And those of us in the Middle probably have way too many other things to worry about than a magazine cover.

    To be totally misunderstood. You said what I said . . . he "liked" my post, then a minute later, gave you crap. I am confused. But then again . . . it's not like his front porch philosophy hasn't confused me before. It's either that, or I am incredibly stupid . . . and that's a real possibility. So, there ya go . . . where ever you're at, that's where you are.

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    I'm far from conservative and I'd rather flush down the toilet the money rather than buy a magazine of *any* kind, let alone corporate music hip hop crap such as Rolling Stone. I wouldn't pay for any pamphlet created to sell you crap when we have the internet.



    I suppose I just never realized people still buy magazines.. The internet exists after all....
