Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

I can agree with that. Depressing Comic Week usually is very hit or miss (some are just downright bad, they are good, some just don't seem to go with the spirit of what C&H should be). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 20, 2012, 10:47 pm

World War II - Random Topics
World War II was the greatest war for the US as wars go. All other wars you could argue were purely voluntary for the U.S. We didn't have to get involved in the first World War but we did. Same for Vietnam, Korea, and the Gulf War. In 1941 we were still trying to climb out of the Great Depression and sitting back watching the rest of the world go at it. The Japanese sucker punched us and we eventually made them pay for it with interest while also kicking Hitlers arse and freeing Europe from his clutches. During WWII we didn't have a lot of pansies like we have today, bad mouthing the U.S. and denouncing war, while enjoying the freedoms the U.S. provides. Everyone, men, women, and children, old and young, came together and did the right thing and the world respected us for it. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 20, 2012, 1:21 am

Pylrulz, I have to agree with you on this. I think the same can be said about all sports now days. I personally think the NBA seems to be taking the biggest boning as of late.

KFC - Random Topics
I notice a lot of food at restaurant chains don't taste as good as they used to...McDonald's fries, BK fries and chicken tenders, Wendy's burgers and fries, even KFC chicken. I'm thinking the ban on trans fats might be the culprit, but many foods changed taste before the ban took effect. After the ban, the foods changed even more. When canola oil is used to cook food, it ruins the flavor, big time. Peanut, corn, and sunflower oils seem to make the foods taste better. Chick-fil-A cooks their chicken with peanut oil, and it tastes good. They once cooked their fries the same way, and they were tasty...but one day, they didn't taste so good, and we soon found out why: They now cooked their fries in CANOLA oil. -- Submitted By: () on March 15, 2012, 11:59 am

If you miss sitcoms, try Britcoms. On PBS Saturday night (7-9pm), you can catch four of them: Are You Being Served?, Are You Being Served? Again!

Compulsory Voting - Random Topics
Isn't this unconstitutional? If not, it should be. The excuse "it encourages people to get active and interested in politics" is baloney: people end up going "eenie, meenie, minie, moe" to choose candidates. And which politician should we vote for? When it comes to political ads, all we hear from candidate Tom is why you shouldn't vote for Dick or Harry. OK, we get it, Tom: Dick stole $450,000 in taxpayer funds to buy himself a yacht. Harry called his ex-wives whores on live TV three years ago, and he refuses to pay child support because they're not his. You play these ads EVERY...SINGLE...COMMERCIAL...BREAK. What are YOU going to do when elected, Tom? Maybe YOUR crimes are so much worse that all you can do is smear Dick and Harry? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2012, 11:43 am

What a ridiculous concept. Where I live, every citizen over 18 must vote or they get a fine - and they do not have many decent politicians to actually choose from. Many people might say that it will encourage people to actively know about politics and get involved (there always will be apathy), all it seems to do is allow politicians to be lazy during campaigns since they have a free ride to votes. When it all becomes a farce, voting loses its meaning. Dumb concept, day 1. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on March 15, 2012, 1:26 am

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
Part of the problem is that, in the States at least, from what I've read, the number of unemployed is a a lot higher then the number of open positions. Another problem is the way people view jobs like McDonalds, retail etc. They see people working in these positions as uneducated and/or feel bad for them for having to 'suffer' with having such a job. It's annoying because our society honestly needs people to work these places of business. Society couldn't function if we are all big executives and no one stocked the shelves, flipped the burgers or washed the floors. Having said that, what you said still has value. Let's face it though, we're not all cut out for these high playing jobs. With some, you need to be a certain sort of person to get and keep a job like that. If you're in school, just look at these students that are at the head of the class. Look at the effort they're putting in and the sort of mentality they have. Yes, some make it look easy to the point where it's easy to get a feeling of entitlement towards the sorts of accomplishments they have. Let's face it, we're not all meant to go to one of the better Colleges or Universities and to take a high level degree. The problem is that, it's easy to expect the same sort of pay from any job that the sort of jobs these very expensive and high standard of students type degrees are geared towards. Not only that but it's easy to forget the dedication and long *long* hours some of these jobs require. Often, these are not the 9-5 sort of job where you put in your 8 hours and then go home. I think if a lot of us were to see the level of sacrifice and dedication these high paying jobs require that we'd be a lot less bitter about making less money. Now, that's not to say there isn't corruption or greed in these companies and in these positions. However, acting as though everyone should be handed the same sort of income unless you're ready, willing and able to put in that effort and dedication indeed, seems just as unfair. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 28, 2012, 11:05 pm

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
One of my main complaints is when people say there "no jobs" out there or always using the "bad economy" excuse. I go to Craigslist and Monsters and see hundreds upon hundreds of jobs. There ARE jobs out there for all skill levels. I think so many people feel so entitled and privledged that they feel they are better than some jobs available. If you want a better job, you'll need to get better training, especially in the very competitive landscape today. Start low and work your way up. Complete high school. Can't afford college? Go to community college. People can't see the forest from the trees. There is still opportunity to be had. You just have to take initiative to go get it. It's hard, it's tough, and it's not always fair, but that's life. Don't blame the rich for your ills, spend less than what you make, don't buy what you don't need, and live within your means. Can't find a job? Start a company or find creative ways to make income. This is still America, still the land of opportunity, and you can still make it if you play your cards right. I do agree that the immoral behavior of greedy CEOs and Wall Street needs to be stopped, but I get very, very VERY tired of the excuse that there are no jobs and the media putting fear in everyone of doom and gloom. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 27, 2012, 6:22 pm

Travaltron, I've seen a bit of the shadowside of hippies from back then to the current time so I understand where you're coming from here. I also like Arbor Day [and more places than ever could use healthy trees]! Anyway, I'm glad you haven't entirely shot down the concept of stewardship of our environment merely because of some bad seeds, kooks and hotheads who claimed to be speaking for every person wanting to preserve habitable space on our planet. P.S. I most sincerely hope that none of those Einhorn wannabees you met took that concept far enough to harm any of their significant others. Oh, yeah, the preceeding post was mine but somehow my moniker got clipped when I sent it in. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 27, 2012, 8:22 am

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
I was under the impression that the problem more or less gets down to the fact that there aren't enough jobs for all of the job seekers out there. The reason why it's so many young people is because a lot of these young people haven't had a chance to begin careers. Many are facing a job market where it's hard to get even a part-time job at McDonalds. They're facing competition from older job seekers in the same boat who even after years are still unable to get a career going and both groups are facing a situation after what sometimes gets into years later, end up facing competition from younger graduates. Some are facing the worry that they'll never be able to get a decent job and their education was for naught. The problem is, this is not a new situation. This has been going on for a good decade or so. Protesting like this however, is not going to fix things. As many others have said, they need leaders, people that can make a coherent and intelligent argument along with reasonable demands and a way to get those demands into action. Then they need to go to Washington and make those demands. Blaming the rich for everything is not the way to solve these problems. It's a situation where we all need to sit down and ask why this is happening. We all need to take responsibility for the role each of us has played in creating this situation. Screaming and yelling won't accomplish anything. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 26, 2012, 10:09 pm

Censorship - Random Topics
On one hand, they keep kids from seeing bad things (before the internet, there wasn't really a way parents could find out if a show was kid-friendly until after they already watched it). On the other hand, it enables irresponsible parents, whose stupidity in turn ruins shows for everyone else (banned episodes, etc.). The cons outweigh the pros. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 26, 2012, 12:53 pm

I've heard the reports that they desecrated churches who took them in. What have the churches ever done to them in respect to Wall Street? And even though they HATE big business, they have no problem using restrooms owned by evil corporations (like McDonald's). Notice the "evil" corporations grant these people who hate them permission to use their facilities? Everyone else would tell them to get lost. There are those who criticize big business and have legitamite complaints (unfair practices such as Bank of America's charging people to use their own money, companies who exploit their workers, crooked CEOs who would sell their own mothers to make a quick buck, etc.). But it's unwise to paint everyone with the same broad brush. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 26, 2012, 12:47 pm

I'm actually pro-environment, but anti-Hippie. I went to college with a whole bunch of Ira Einhorn wannabes-- all entitled and arrogant with no common sense. So you can see why I have mixed feelings about Earth Day. I do like the concept, but not the people behind it. I'll stick with Arbor Day. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on January 25, 2012, 11:58 pm

James- so basically money is bad, and corporations are evil- despite the fact that the majority of Americans are employed, and given benefits by corporations. And yes they are moving from church to church like Locusts. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204124204577155090035636750.html That's one of about 70 articles about them being at churches. Finally, your comment about them "taking in the mentally ill", I would submit the entire movement is either hippies, or the mentally ill. WE DONT KNOW WHAT WE WANT WE WANT IT NOW.. or ..MONEY IS BAD & COMPANIES ARE BAD GIVE US STUFF!!!

Earth Day - Random Topics
Travaltron, I have to admit that I'd never heard of Ira Einhorn's association with the first Earth Day organizers. I've spent some time looking up primary sources since you mentioned this and, to the best of my comprehension, it seems he was the emcee of that first rally [and he HAD been a bigwig in Philadelphia counterculture circles prior to that]. It wouldn't be the first (or last) time an organization gravely erred by thinking a loudmouth would be beneficial in helping to jumpstart a cause. How could someone emcee an event without having any part in helping to organize it? Instead of saying Einhorn hadn't had anything to do with it, I think it would have been far better had they just lumped it and said [at his trial] 'Yeah, we made a horrible mistake in choosing him to emcee the thing and we're sorry he used that clout to help seduce a trusting girl whom he evidently would murder and stuff in a trunk!' It was hardly the first [or last time] an organization of any stripe has believed that having an obnoxious loudmouth at the front of the ranks would only have positive benefits [rarely if ever does this happen]. I am not an Earth Day supporter or organizer but I DO believe that we as individuals do need to consider what's best for the environment because we're on a planet with 7 billion other people and counting with ever decreasing resources,etc. I agree that some environmentalists have had rather skewed priorities, DolFan[e.g. the lightbulbs]. In addition to the BP Oil Spill Disaster nonaction, I'd also like to add something a little closer to home- the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant Coal Slurry Spill that ruined many acres and private homes- the environmental effects still are being felt. Yet, despite this disaster from the leaking coal ash pond, there's been no call to transfer slurry from other existing ponds near residential areas to safer containments even though this disaster proved this method extremely unsafe and doomed to failure without constant and proper human maintence. I guess the point I'm making is that regardless of the poor judgments/whacked priorities of some of the higher ups, I believe it's important for us to consider what we each can do to help keep as much of our planet as habitable for as long as possible. I mean, doing nothing and pretending there are no consequences of pollution makes as much sense as becoming cat hoarders. I think a better approach rather than considering making positive steps the equivilant of having 'freedoms' taken away would be to consider said steps a kind of game like scrap iron drives and victory gardens were to my parents' generation in World War Two with the idea of believing we were GAINING our freedom by contributing to a worthy goal. OK, I'm ready for the negative votes but I thought the above needed to be said.[and I most sincerely hope Einhorn rots in his prison for what he did to that poor girl regardless of anything else ]. -- Submitted By: () on January 24, 2012, 1:07 pm

Here's their only official release of what they're protesting. Other "demands" were overblown or just an opinion of one person which would be too extreme for anyone to take seriously. http://occupywallst.org/forum/first-official-release-from-occupy-wall-street/ Of course, saying they're getting kicked out "building to building" is just hyperbole. Their problems was in taking in homeless, mentally ill people who caused most of the problems. I agree they didn't need to keep camping out. Once they got media attention which took a while they could have left and now had a platform to express their views. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on January 24, 2012, 11:02 am

They're protesting corporate money in politics in a nutshell. The fact that a corporation is a person but gets more rights and can't be prosecuted like a real human being and legislation continues to favor those with money on the backs of the less fortunate. The wikipedia article explains it pretty well. What they're protesting seems pretty clear to me. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on January 24, 2012, 10:54 am
