I’m trying to pick from the money tree and ya’ll are trying to chop it down.
No kidding ... and you NEVER should have bowed down to them
Oh fiddle - they’re just trying to ..... you know ....
The lawyer made it about the N word when he asked Deen the question.
And if this woman didn’t like the work environment she should leave.
Now it looks like she’s trying to become a celeb...who would hire her after this frivolous lawsuit?
Grow up. The boss may be a son-of-a-bitch but the son-of-a-bitch is boss.
How does this white woman even have “standing” in this case (where did I hear that word last week)?
Sounds like extortion (pay off the lawyer or face a media smear).
Meanwhile someone who tried to sell a script to David Letterman was made the bad guy in that whole story.
Yeh its been about money. Paula has some and she wants as much as she can get.
Somewhere recently I saw posted a letter that Lisa Jackson had written to Paula Deen two years earlier before she filed the lawsuit, gushing Paula and her brother how much they had done for her career and life by hiring her and helping her out.
“In it, Jackson gushes, When I came to work for this company as a person, I felt hopeless. I needed something, some opportunity that could provide me hope as an individual, as a woman, to make it on my own .I was stuck in an unhappy marriage because I had no other options .When I started working for Bubba, he gave me an opportunity that allowed me, over time, a freedom I have never experienced. He allowed me, for once in my life to take care of myself and for once have faith in myself as a person and as a woman to know that I could do it on my own Since then, I have been given opportunities that I never thought possible, all because of you and Bubba.
Also I suspect that the reason they’re now saying this isn’t about the ‘N’ word is that they didn’t anticipate the fact that with all her contracts cancelled she may not have any money left even if they do win the lawsuit.
Words are nothing more than a collection of letters/symbols meant to convey a thought or describe something/someone.
There is ZERO difference between the n-word and actually using the real word other than an arbitrary policy by the owners of various sites to either allow or ban its use. Just as the word in a different language would mean the same.
There are millions in the USA who are the personification of the N-word and are fully deserving of the scorn one would mean to convey by that word. Just as a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, the N-word by any other name is just as vile.
Unfortunately we have the PC police dictating what we can say and do, and hog tying us up to the point of frustration.
I long for the day, when some douche bag would mouth off and you could just pop them one and it was over in a flash.
Now we have all that unleashed hostility building up with lawyers, LEOs, Politicians, phony journalist just waiting to pounce on the littlest PC infraction.
All this pent up hostility seems to affect us all.
This is what the Lily Ledbetter act was for, and why there was no statute of limitations on bringing charges. Any business owner can now be brought up on charges from the distant past, and face tremendous fines. Another death knell for American businesses.
This is very much like what the communist Chinese used to do- people could be hauled up on charges that their grandparents had owned property, or had criticized the government, or other similar things. Looks like whoever wrote lily ledbetter took a page right out of the Mao dairies.
She is offended by someone else’s imagined state of being offended by what Paula may or may not have said to some unknown person not a party of the suit.
Okey dokey. Makes no sense and a total waste of the court’s time. This Jackson person needs to be fined for every dime of taxpayer dollars she’s wasting.
What a great person she is! /s
Of course not. It’s always been about shaking Paula down for a few million.
