“Southern white libtard”

The libtard part I can agree with, but being white and southern I take those as fighting words. :)

And I bet to assuage her white guilt.

We ALL have guilt. Since we are ALL members of the human race (well most of us) we are sinners, guilty from the day we reached the ability to know right from wrong....about six or seven years of age.

We ALL have to assuage our guilt in some way.
"White guilt" is stupid, useless and mostly unimportant. No race has cornered the market on guilt, stupidity or self-righteousness. Some INDIVIDUALS seemed to have cornered the market on stupidity, uselessness and unimportance, but they have such problems with their brains that they deserve only my pity.

I wish her well, I wish I could get 75 to 100 mil-large for a venture, but in terms of the cooking guru's on the Food Network, I didn't get her, tried to watch but the ingredients turned me off. I agree it was too fattening, not that I am anti-butter, but I have my limits...
I learn so much more from "Triple D" watching Guy and all the other chef's tricks, herbs and spices, and combinations to experiment to my hearts content and come up with some interesting twist on sauces and rubs on my own....

I LOVE Guy Fieri. My husband and I lived in northern California for a bit and Guy is from about 1/2 hour south of Eureka, California. There is NOTHING up there....absoLUTELY nothing. I was AMAZED that the little podunk area he's from produced SUCH a fabulous chef and GUY!!

I like Paula Deen too but, YES, way too much butter, sugar, salt and fat. Those four ingredients, by the way, not only make food taste good but they make food TASTE.
Otherwise, we would just be strapping on the old FOOD BAG.
Her drawl gets to me after a while, though. It's A LOT put on, I've heard. That's okay with me, but I do get tired of it after a while.

I love Guy Fieri and the Barefoot Condessa because they speak like NORMAL folks. Giada us a twit and a twig who doesn't ever eat and I WAY, WAY distrust skinny chefs: WAY, WAY, WAY unclear on the concept of being a great chef.

Yes, I know the type. When everybody is around she’s all nice. As soon as she walks back she treats everybody around her like vermin.

I worked with a bitch woman I detested. She was just sugar and cream when everyone was around. But to me, when she had no one to control her, she was a bwitch.

She's done herself in, though. She got divorced (She had a SUPER husband.), went on a year's leave of absence, expected to waltz back in to her old job and DIDN'T get it. I WISH I had been a fly on the wall to see her expression when she heard that!
I was able to retire last year because I'm not like her at all and left work with a smile on my face and a smile on everyone else's. I was a good girl ALMOST all the time. :o) I am now living the life of Reilly and she is still working. She has to work at TWO places because NEITHER wants her full time.

The worst thing about her (to me) was how PHONY she was. She was "boss" for a brief while and the other phonies (two other women) I worked with kissed up to her...nauseating. Then she was gone on her leave of absence and their kissy-assness made them look UBER foolish. Harhar. There WERE compensations.

“I don’t have an anger problem. I calmly stated a fact. You are angry at me, because I won’t go along with Jesse Jackson and Obama?”

Coincidentally, I don’t have an anger problem either so you needn’t accuse me of same. I have little to no problem with Paula Dean (spelled differently than you did so is it the same person?) as perhaps you and your buddies do. In addition, I saw only assertions in your statement, no facts.
