“She should have been a stripper instead, in a club, where no cameras were allowed when she was hard up. I am sure she was outed by someone with an axe to grind. Misstating facts or misrepresenting oneself on a job application ANYWHERE is grounds for termination. Says so right on most of them. She should get her Masters and teach at the Community College level, or go for a higher degree and teach at a University. This is a tough lesson to learn, but her past can be a guide for up and coming youngsters who want to teach.”

“You know, not all Republicans are extremist, as all Democrats are not extremest. There is such a thing as the "middle of the roader." The issue with the party at large is that more Tea Party candidates have run under the Republican ticket. Honestly, they should run as Tea Party candidates, and it should be noted at the ballot box. I really think that Christie represents the ideals of "middle of roaders" - who like myself, may eventually become Independents. I disaffiliated myself from the GOP several years ago. I voted for a Dem. for the first time EVER this past election. The GOP leadership has fallen out of touch due to their elitism and being overtaken by the extremist Tea Party. Sad, it was once a really great organization. Now, not so much. Powell is also another great example of a "middle of the road" Republican.”

“This man exemplifies exactly who should not own assault weapons. A crazed and raving lunatic acting out in the heat of the moment without self control, and apologizes afterward. Many a killer has apologized after killing in an angry fog. Too late then. The damage is done. Is it just me, or does it appear as those who want to hold on to their precious assault rifles have their priorities a little crossed? I would kill someone if they tried to kidnap my child in my own home, I would kill someone if they were trying to kill me. I would not kill anyone over not being allowed to own more 30 round mags or assault weapons. Most of these people are "outraged" and are acting just downright crazy. Further reasons for legislation, some of these people, even friends of mine, have shown a dark and volatile side I did not knew existed over this matter- and they own these kinds of weapons! Just leaves me disgusted and shocked.”

“Quite the opposite really. I don't think the majority of society is telling them it okay. Everyone has quirks, everyone has something in their life going on that some do not approve of. Most of these women get bigger to appease their mates. Which in my world, is an entirely different issue. For myself, it pains me to see anyone change themselves for the happiness or gratification of another. There are those who turn to other means just as harmful as these women to please others and to cope. People die every day for a myriad of reasons. There will always be some people ready to "point that finger." I for one tend to not try to perch myself on an "I am far superior" pedestal. I attempt to have compassion, genuinely. For that to happen, I must not judge - I must hope for the best for all people in their struggles.”

“I don't really feel that these photos are glorifying it. I see the art in it - as a collection. Were these photos in a smutty magazine or this was a ploy to make morbid obesity suddenly became the "new it thing," then I would feel like you are on the mark. It is a double edged sword really, this vs thinspo. These women hypothetically are just as healthy or unhealthy as those who are severely underweight. The major difference here is that many people find anorexia or borderline anorexia beautiful. So beautiful in fact that they are glorified. I am going to say this for these women. And it may be offensive. BUT if one of these women and an anorexic woman fell ill with a Rotavirus or other serious gastrointestinal illness - I know which one would most likely survive. And it isn't the one whose hip bones are showing. I for one have always struggled with my weight and have always dieted down if I felt myself getting heavy. Strangely enough - being put on steroids for an injury inflated me like a balloon. I am still fighting, a year later, to get it off while nursing my injury. SUCKS! IT has truly humbled me and given me a new appreciation for what overweight people go through.”

“For me, as a collection, it is quite fascinating. As I studied each photograph, and each woman - it really hit home how differently shaped all women are. Women of a healthy weight all seemingly appear the same with few obvious differences here and there. Here, with these women, it is so strange how they are all obese, and with that obesity the obvious differences in body type and shape become pronounced. I can see myself as a morbidly obese person in one model in particular. Weight is carried so differently on all of these women. One woman's legs are particularly large, even down to the ankle - while a different woman has an almost distorted behind compared to her stomach. I cannot say these women are beautiful in my eye, but to some they are. I cannot take that away from those admirers nor these women. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, if not in the eye of ones own self. The most tragic thing about this exhibit, is that we are looking at individuals who have been bullied by society and will most likely pass on early with others disliking them without having had truly known them due to their appearance. I was also profoundly entranced by the demonstration of brilliant architecture that comprises the human skeleture and musculature structures/systems and their ability to support such mass. (I mean that clinically and not as an attack on these women.) Mind blowing.”

“You are so very wrong Ms. These woman ARE plus size models NOT even regular everyday woman. They are paid to do this and be this way and some have even gained weight to make their fortune and fame. I think its rediculous to do that because of money and fame but ALL those woman up there ARE models and work in the same adult contented world I do BUT I dont do what theyre doing because I refuse to eat to get bigger nor eat to make money. Its awful to say the least but NONE of those woman are regular every day woman they are contracted signed plus size and super sized models.”

Sometimes ideals and ideology have to be thrown out the window when ideals, ideas, and ideology suddenly becomes a reality and one has to come to the realization that those ideals are flawed.”

“Well, the fantasy world you live in where the father is so important is one I am glad that I do not reside in. It works both ways also. I am a tad more forward thinking and living in this century, and raising him as I see fit. I already raised one child- she just graduated from VT and is fabulous. So you can just keep your all important "FAther" and "Minor children should just shut the hell up and do what their daddy wants to if that means being with him while he is shooting up mentality" way over where you are - lol Because I am so glad my father raised me not to have barbaric points of view.”

Nirbija Samadhi on Jan 1, 2013 at 14:54:13

“So in your forward thinking world, the 'father is not important'?

No wonder it is claimed by another that the MINOR does want contact with the father. His mind is being poisoned, the poor thing.

And your father was important to you; but you can't see the importance of father to your own offspring?
He is 'shooting up mentally' seems not to have been a problem for you?
It's all about you; isn't it? lol
More often than not, it is all about the self-centered mother.

Do not destroy communication between the MINOR and his father. If you weren't raped, then he was good enough for you. He's also the only father the MINOR had to give him a 'taste' of life on earth.

And by the way, regardless of Century, the Codes of Conduct guiding human behavior DO NOT CHANGE WITH TIME!

Dishonoring parents is wrong IN ANY CENTURY!
Encouraging minors to dishonor a parent, or refusing to steer a minor from honoring parent, is wrong IN ANY CENTURY!”

“I do believe that his father is to be held accountable to a certain extent. He is not responsible for it. The mother also is to be held accountable to a certain extent. She is partially responsible.
And I can tell you, my minor son who was abandoned by his father wishes not contact with him and has none. His life would be very unhealthy with his influence and lifestyle. You cannot group all people together. Not all people are in the same situation.”

Nirbija Samadhi on Jan 1, 2013 at 11:50:00

“If one is accountable, then one IS responsible!
The mother is accountable & responsible, and paid a terrible price.

I'm not so-called 'grouping all people together'.

If the father abandons his son, then the "minor" should not be allowed to make a decision to not have contact, if the father wishes; because as long as the offspring is a MINOR, the so-called abandonment is not complete!

No MINOR can make such a weighty decisions on his own!
He no doubt is getting support/prodding from wrong people.

And it is destructive to promote the minor's EXCUSE for no contact with "unhealthy with his (father's) influence and lifestyle".
Your father IS your father, regardless of lifestyle.

And this minor's wish of no contact with his father is exactly the kind of seething anger that drove some offspring to being problems for themselves and for society.

Better to take the position of Obama's mother when the boy was getting angry at the father that 'deserted' him while young. The mother would have none of it, have none of the boy's anger that is! That is a wise mother!
Anger towards parents, FOR WHATEVER EXCUSE, is the worse kind of anger & ingratitude! Without father, he has no life! NONE!”

He was the victim of a divorce, a child of an overarmed mother, and a person who gave into their own impulse and was fully equipped to do it in the most violent way.

“WRONG!

In a healthier society THE FATHER would be held accountable!

He deserted & abandoned his MINOR offspring to be a problem BOTH to himself & to the rest of the society!

No MINOR should be able to 'cut off' a parent, and especially not a son 'cut off' a father!
And no healthy society would allow those actions of BOTH father & MINOR son!

An offspring that is deserted by father, is very very likely to be a threat to himself and to the rest of the society.
This should be clear by now from seeing all those so-called 'troubled children' with mothers representing them in public, while father is absent!

Burning the carcass and dumping the remains in a distant garbage heap is symbolic!
In the same ay that some Americans burning the US flag is symbolic, while other citizens wouldn't dream of desecrate their nation's flag.”

“Funerals are for the living to come to terms with what has happened with the loss of a loved one. This boy was loved. His crime didn't flip the "I hate you switch" in the hearts of those that loved him. His body feels nothing. Drag it through the streets? For what? So other innocents could be victimized by the images of a harsh reality. What does dragging rotting flesh through the streets accomplish - nothing. Duh. Take a biology class. Those babies are in Heaven (my beliefs) or just gone (others beliefs) and he is in Hell (my beliefs) or just gone (others.) Funerals are not for the dead - they know nothing. Funerals are for the living to either celebrate, curse, ask why, or to come together in grief, sorrow, shame, or all of the previous listed. All of the people affected by this tragedy that remain will always have questions, they have all lost, they are all in my thoughts and prayers. And keep your religious bashing and harping to yourselves. I don't care which religious Tea Partier extremist thinks "We deserved it - Wasn't your children killed" and I don't care which religion bashers think my prayers and thoughts are a joke (My beliefs not yours - I don't force mine on you nor do I discount your beliefs nor lack thereof so don't force yours on me.)”
