What a joke!

July 16, 2013

Paula Deen, what a joke, she’s crying alright, she lost a lot of money, saying she’s sorry, over and over. She said the N word more than once and her brother is no better. I feel nothing to her....

The title describes the letter and its author.

Another example of "sundowners" syndrome where confusion,illusion and delusion in older folks surface after sundown. This woman should wait until the light of day before getting in front of her keyboard, and especially before preaching to the rest of us.

I still see numerous movies in which the "N" word is mentioned. Those actors ,producers and screenplay writer still have their jobs.

Donna, I see you moved back to South Williamsport. Did you get tired of Williamsport?

Is there a person over 60, born and raised in the South, that hasn't used the "N" word? The word was learned from their parents and grandparents.

At least Paula Deen was honest and admitted to using it.

I'm waiting for Shaman to start spouting out of his blow hole.

So Donna, it's alright for the Rev Al Sharptongue to call a white a cracker, or to use anti-gay slurs or racist remarks against chinese immigrants! It's ok for a black leader to be racist, he gets rewarded with a slot on MSNBC. Like Paula Deen, Sharptongue said these things years ago, but by virtue of being a white she is punished, while the likes of a Sharpton or Jackson are rewarded. Typical leftist horse poo!

Paula Deen needs to take her $ta$h-o'-ca$h and retire....to the La Brea Tar Pits....an appropriate final-resting-place for ALL "conservatives" who insist they just-can't-HELP being life-long racists/bigots.

GysgtUSMC - I wish you wouldn't disparage whales and dolphins by comparing them to Shaman.

About the same time the Paula Deen kerfuffle was all over the news, Alec Baldwin pulled another one of his blathering stunts, and insulted/threatened a gay man via Twitter. Where were the calls for him to be shunned from acting?

Donna,"The American that took his business over seas, another joke, just to pay those poor workers a slave wage."

Slaves don't get wages. People are paid what they are willing to work for. You would think that liberals would appreciate that these people aren't as greedy as Americans. You would also think that liberals would want to share our jobs with them and help them out. Now they don't have to come here illegally to work for less than Americans will. It's hard to make sense of the liberal mindset.

Francine - would you feel the same way if your admitting of this cost you your livelihood? Paula Deen was held to a standard that is unfair and unjust. And all the companies she represented should be ashamed of themselves for abandoning her because they were afraid of all the Liberal race hustlers threats.

I guess honesty might not be the best policy. It wasn't for Ms. Deen.

"I'm over 60, and I don't care who says it, the N word is despicable! Have I ever said it in my whole life? I regret to say, yes I have......many, many years ago. And I'm sorry for it." - Francine

Same, here. Look at how many of us were brought-up on "EENIE, MEANIE, MINEEE MOE"...without (actually) thinking about what we were saying?

The DIFFERENCE, is...how many of us are still making the SAME references...but, in a "coded" way...much like Porky Limbaugh does?

I'm guessing Paula Deen's situation is a "little" different...the way she (as an ADULT) put-together a party...with a PLANTATION THEME!!!!!!

How is the NFL team in Washington able to continue with the "redskins" name in this era of political correctness?

This from someone that uses a Native name to post here.

But it's OK for Black Liberals to call Black Conservatives "Uncle Tom's"? It's OK for Black Liberals to call Jews "Hymies"? It's OK for Black Liberals to use all manner of disparaging terms to talk about caucasians?

Please explain this distinction, Liberals.

I am 1/4 Native Vince, thus the chosen user name. I don't believe the team name is meant in a derogatory manner but it does seem a bit slanderous, don't you think?

So that's a "yes" Shammy?

You realize that when you use a "you guys do that too" answer you are tacitly justifying the original charge.
