Why would they not be in a position to criticize Maddogg?

 

The last time I checked this was America, Maddogg has a RIGHT to say what he wants, and people have a RIGHT to criticize or applaud his view.

obviously you didnt comphrehend my post.

the very fact that she deducted nonsensical conclusion from maddogg's post disqualifies her from criticizing maddogg. obviously she has the inherent right to say whatever she wants, but sometimes i like to think that if you are going to say something so fatuous by even slightly accusing someone of being racist than I believe you have already lost the argument and maddogg doenst have to respond to her comment.

    I have never seen a President be blamed for so many things that he has NO CONTROL over.  Stimulus checks?  Blame Bush. People feel now that they have a "right" to them.

    As far as the lady goes, she was very wicked and very wild.  I guess she figured may as well go out with a bang or rather I should say riot.

    Shopping frugally does not mean that one cannot afford the "best".  It means that they have different priorities.

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

      What is up with Ohio? I wouldn't be surprised if this person is also taking boxing lessons from Elicia Battle!

      Anyway, even if I win, I wouldn't be in a limo unless I were going to a funeral!
      It would be something like a Jeep Cherokee.

      I do need a new coat though...

        It's obvious you drew a conclusion for someone else, my point being that Maddogg and she has a right to say what they want and to debate those points without someone else talking for them.

        She had a valid point to ask, and for Maddogg to respond, let Maddogg reply as to what he meant since it was he she asked the question.

        Who are you to say she does'nt have the right to question Maddogg or anyone else?

          I have never seen a President be blamed for so many things as Bush! The lady does need help and so do all those that stole from the business.

          PS, People now feel they have a "right" to healthcare thanks to Hillery and Obama!

            I am sorry, I agree with them..they do have a right to reasonable healthcare costs. No one should lose their home because they get sick.

              This is VERY frightening, unfunny, and unentertaining!  It is a very expensive theft to Burlington Coat Factory!  It will also be very expensive to clean up after several of the people purposely stepped on and damaged very valuable coats, etc. that were strewn in their path, rather than picking up the item they personally dropped (or the person nearby) to keep it from destruction/damage. 

              Consequently, I wonder if this purposely mass theft and vandalization will cause several employees to be laid-off from BCF, and/or if BCF will choose to end its lease and move to a neighborhood that it believes/hopes will be safer to conduct fair business in?  I wonder if any of these thieves will gain the GIFT of remorse and return their stolen items in salable condition?  I wonder if the police department's employees will be able to regain trust or confidence in the human population that lives within a few mile radus of that BCF greately abused store and employees again (I presume that several of BCF's employees -- and probably some police officers -- presant, are going to need fear counseling after this polarized mass theft)?

                  Last time I checked the Constitution I could not find a right to healthcare, let alone cheap healthcare.

                  No, I really don't think any such right exists, nor should it.

                    Yes, let's just let the poor people die becuase they can not afford to go to the doctor. It's their fault that they are so poor in the first place.

                      I too don't see what President Obama has to with a woman creating chaos with a fake giveaway from the lottery prize.  I;m glad she was apprhended and pray she pays for what she's done.  If she's not mentally fit then I pray she gets the help she needs.  The people who took merchandise shoud be prosecuted as the law allow for theft.

                       

                       

                      Whild Healthcare was not a right given to us in the Constitution, there should be options which allows for people to obtain affordable coverage and not have to lose their homes or retirement savings due to a major illness.  I love this country with its faults, freedom also means choices.  So Mandatory Purchase of Plan is uncontinuable.

                        Sorry, but in America that kind of thing doesn't happen.  Emergency rooms are required by law to treat anyone who doesn't have health insurance.

                        You see, in this country we already have a great health care system in which nobody "dies" (your words) for lack of health insurance.

                        In other countries with government-run healthcare, like Canada and England, people DO DIE because they either have to wait so long for their procedures, or else the government says they won't get a life-saving drug because they are too old and "not worth it".

                        People who actually take 5 minutes to learn about the system from someone other than a shill for the Democrat party knows what I'm saying is true.

                          Back to topic-

                          1: Burlington Coat factory or any business that allows large purchases will do so with the credit card pre-approved or the money in hand. This was in part Burlingtons duty to control this antic. That in part was their undoing.

                          2: I sincerely do think this lady was mentally unstable

                          Off Topic:

                          Footnote: True that hospital must save lives, but the reality is: The bill STILL must be paid by the patient who cant afford it! That is where the problem lays. So yes from a person who is a NON Republican I do have research and experience from the revenue to treat a vegabond and the reality that the bill will be absorbed as a loss. Which is NOT good for any business to sustain. SO yes arent americans lucky that ALL can be treated yet only a few can pay.  Gotta Love free enterprise.

                          ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                            -it is amazing how much anger was raised up by one woman's foolish stunt, even spawning a debate on Healthcare. This chaos is caused by people who *didn't* win. Not everyone is as well-educated as we are on this board, and the woman (I am speculating) maybe upset that people were shunning her for whatever reasons, and figured that if she won the Lottery people would suddenly love her. It would have been possible for her to be generous with whatever credit she had by giving *anonymously* to various charities, food banks, etc. There are ways to bless other people and glorify God (isn't that the purpose?) without putting the attention on oneself.

                            I remember a few years ago I brought a coat to BCF which was in good condition except for a broken zipper, for a donation program. They were rude to me about it and said they only want brand-new coats and only for a limited time and because I was busy I missed the deadline. I put it in Goodwill and have not since returned to BCF.

                            I don't agree with the wild speculation that BCF would have massive layoffs etc. because of the incident at the Store. Maybe some of those coats will go to the truly needy. Maybe God moves in ways we don't understand. Or maybe people are right and she deserves the electric chair because of the chain reaction she caused that will ultimately unravel spacetime itself.

                            By the way... if people truly like you  it shouldn't be because you have money. I always say that if and when I win, I will remember those who were there for me when I was poor.

                              When I first saw this, I thought, oh noooo!  Then I said, how gullible can people be.  How gullible could the cashiers be???!!!!!  When the first coat was rung up, I would have asked for payment then, NO IF ANDS OR BUTS!  The fiasco would have been nipped in the bud, right then!  Greed on all parts.  Store managers and the customers.  I hope the theives get caught.  That was so stupid of them to steal the store merchandise and destroy it.  So what will the next big stunt be.  This lady needs to be made responsible for the limo driver and other stuff she did.  Betcha she would not think her pranks were so funny then.
