Carrie Underwood. There is just something about her that sets my antenna quivering. Like she is secretly really not nice, or not honest or something. Her hockey husband seems a bit weird too as does their marriage.

Taylor Smith, Justin Beiber, I just don't think they can sing.

Her speaking voice is like nails on chalkboard...and she's about 4 foot 2

Yeah, and she's tries too be raunchy, doesn't suit her.
My dad calls her "Carrie Underwear"

Guy Fieri, whom I'm assuming everyone else loves because he's taken over the Food Network, and nobody's complaining but me.

I'm just sick of him. It seems every time I tune in, it's DDD or his Grocery Games--one show right after another. Enough, already.

During WWII, there wasn't anything we know today as precision bombing. When you have to bomb from high altitude to avoid flak and fighters, it gets even worse. Now that we have "precision" weapons, it is said that collateral damage is horrible and sometimes combatants take advantage of that by mingling with innocent civilians.

War is not fun for anyone. When someone starts one, thinking no one will have the stomach to stop them, what do think should be done?

Jimmy Stewart took on a role in WWII that a very large percentage of participants did not survive. If they were lucky enough to survive being shot down they spent the rest of the war in a Stalag.

Also, before and during the war, the Germans were training the youth in Germany to be combatants. Who knows how many of those "children" died as a result. Would you blame the Germans or those who killed them?

Very well explained. I think the person you are replying to has led a rather sheltered life.

Jimmy Stewart saw more combat flying then most actors of that time. He ended up having a military career as well as acting.

Have you noticed that several times they've run DDD all day Friday, all day Saturday, all day Sunday, and all morning Monday? I don't dislike Guy and I think grocery games can be pretty fun to watch but goodness, someone in food network's programming dept needs to find a different line of work.

Cesar Millan.

While some of his tips are okay, he consistently sticks to outmoded and sometimes dangerous methods of dog "training". The idea that the human is the pack leader is antiquated; the idea that one must teach the dog that the human is in control, no matter the scenario, is just...bad...all around.

What really convinced me that Cesar's methods are wrong was the video of him attempting to show a resource guarding dog, Molly, that he was taking ownership of her food dish. (Look up 'showdown with Molly' on Youtube.) As an owner of a dog with food guarding issues, I vehemently, absolutely, 110%, will avow that this was the WORST method of approaching food guarding/aggression in a dog, ever. Cesar's mistake is that he believes all confrontations with dogs are that of a dog attempting to "one-up" the human, or take over. This is never the case with food/resource guarding. Guarding is a fear-based activity that the dog has learned, thinking that they might lose the resource (food, toy, etc.) if someone comes near, so they defend it the only way they know how, by (often subtle) threatening gestures, and - if pushed - with snapping or biting. And when the dog is pushed, their fears are reinforced exponentially.

Cesar pushes this dog until she has absolutely no choice but to bite...an action that he admits he did not see coming. In watching the video for the first time, to me it was clear that Molly was being backed into a corner, so to speak, and that she was getting ready to lash out. How could Cesar, a self-proclaimed dog whisperer, not see this??

Cesar's actions did nothing but reinforce the dog's fears that she needed to guard her food. To the dog, she believed that she might lose the resource; with Cesar crossing her boundary and acting with threatening motions (getting closer to her, hovering over the food) he was telling her in dog language that he was going to take her resource away. So of course she lashed out. All that Cesar accomplished was to reinforce the dog's fears, and to make matters far worse.

Anyone who deals with fearful dogs will know that you do NOT threaten them. You do NOT push them until they react. These actions can cause irreparable damage, and can ultimately result in the euthanization of a dog who could have been helped. Positive reinforcement, understanding where the root cause of the problem is (the fear, rather than the outward action), and redirecting the dog with positive actions and reward, stand the strongest chance of helping a dog with such issues, and is the only way one may be able to succeed in stopping food/resource guarding in its tracks.

This is why I give a HUGE thumbs down to Cesar Millan. His heart might be in the right place, but many of his methods are harmful, and wrong.

how can I blame the Germans for fighting for their freedom?
