Rosie O'Donnell's VIEW upset me this morning.

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
On The View Rosie made a comment on how our priorities were all wrong here in America, because everyone is getting so upset about the tainted food, and the cats and dogs that are dying. She went on to list the amount of animals that had died from the bad food, and then said that 25 soldiers died last week also, yet she said no one is making much of a big deal about the soldiers.

Me, personally, I have more of a personal connection with the cats and dogs, because I have animals. I personally don't know any soldiers in the war. Now I feel awful that the soldiers are dying in this War, but that doesn't mean that the dogs and cats aren't more fore front in my mind. I got the feeling from her statement that Dogs and Cats aren't as important. I feel they're both important, but probably like me, a lot more people have a dog or a cat in their home that they're worried about than have close family or friends who are solders. So it stands to reason that there is a big uproar about the tainted food.

Soldiers CHOSE to become military to fight for our country.

Dogs and cats did NOT choose to eat poisoned food. They do not volunteer to be our pets, they are completely at our mercy.

I see no comparison between the two subjects whatsoever. I like Rosie in general, I know lots of folks don't, but I think that at this point she enjoys creating controversy.

I agree with Betsy. The soldiers chose to fight for a cause. Cats & dogs eat what we feed them & generally trust us. They have no control of what they eat, if they don't eat it they'll starve. They are two completely different things.

That burns me too! What does one thing have to do with the other? I don't think the tainted food has been publicized enough. I have told several people about it in the past few days that hadn't even heard of it! We can stop pets from dying by spreading the word. We can't stop our troops from dying by talking about it ~ unfortunately.

I saw cans of Special Kitty on the shelves at Walmart this weekend - I have no idea what batches they were from, but was FLOORED that they were still on the shelves!

I think that if Rosie has issues about "America's" priorities, she should have a nice little sit down with George W., and address the deaths of the soldiers issue with HIM.

my view on her is about the same as trump's

I saw that this morning at our Wal-Mart as well. I raised all kinds of heck at every employee I saw until the dept. manager came out to talk to me. Apparently they did not get the memo till this morning that all the Special Kitty had to be pulled. I was when I saw that stuff on the shelf.

On the other hand, Rosie no doubt sees any news or controversy about herself as a BIG deal.

Pun intended.

There is no way Wal Mart managers did not receive recall information until today. Ask to see the memo. Better yet, pass this on the their HQ and see if it's true.

Just because soldiers are dying (which is a very sad state of affairs), doesn't mean that people have to forget all other internal concerns. The food recall is just as worthy a concern and its a major consumer concern.

If it was human food instead of pet food, maybe then Rosie O'Donnell would have something different to say (oops)
post #10 of 82
Well, I don't think that Rosie meant it to be derogatory toward pets. I think she probably meant that an issue that is as important has become so backburnered that most people have forgotten about it. And I sort of agree with both sides on this. Animals are every bit as important. However, when you consider that most people who do join the military do so with the consideration that there *might* be a war (who really thinks their country is ever going to go to war), but a promise of great things, wonderful job opportunities, educational reimbursment... et cetera.. it's a bit of a falsehood. I mean, really.. how many of us really thought that we'd be at war today.. 10 years ago? We were all busy living our happy lives, or at least I was.

Rosie has a very blunt and .. sometimes overly direct way about her. But if I remember correctly she is in fact a member of animal rights organizations, so I'm sure it didn't come out the way she intended it.
post #11 of 82
I like Rosie a lot, but I admit I was rather disappointed in her comments this morning. Sure, I'm sad that Soldiers are dying in this needless war, but that doesn't mean I'm not gonna care about the cats and dogs dying. Why can't we be sad about them both?
post #12 of 82
I agree with CatsAreBetter.
You don't really hear about all the stuff that is going on over there. Things like Anna Nicoles death (even though I was a big fan of hers) are more important to TV than what is going on with all our soldiers that have left everything so important to them for us. I will admit that I didn't think about it as much before I met someone that is over there. Now I worry about it every day.

I didn't see it. But I don't think that she should have made it sound like the animals that died arn't important. People lost their babies....their family members because of this. I think that she picked the wrong thing to compare it to.

I think you got that one right.
post #14 of 82
Of course its dreadful and appalling that so many soldiers are dying, but that doesn't mean that other issues and other deaths (human or animal) are not important and shouldn't be given any consideration.

If all we're supposed to think about on a daily basis is to make sure that we don't give our full attention to anything other than soldiers dying in wars, we wouldn't have much time to worry or care for anything else now, would we?

I don't like Rosie O'Donnell anyway. Being naturally extroverted, brash and loud doesn't give you a good enough reason to keep your tactless smart-mouth open and blabbing 23 hours a day

I have to back this up, at the same time say that she at one time was my favorite female comedian. Her political values were something, at one point, to admire as far as the satirical way she would remind the people of the topics. I truely believe that she has gone to far in many topics since, she "speaks before she thinks", and / or limits her thinking to her own relativity........

Betsy your so right!.

Hope don't let her bother you. I think if there were a situation where a cat or Rosie O'Donnell had to be saved the majority of us would save the cat

Good one Susan ....I used to Love Rosie many moons ago, but now she is freaking ignorant WTH happened to her
post #20 of 82
I think Rosie should just keep her mouth closed. I really don't care what she or any other "celebrities" think as well. They have no clue about reality

Yep. I wouldn't cross the street, to spit on her, if she was on fire.
post #22 of 82
I cannot stand Rosie O' Donnell. I used to watch The View from time to time until she started running her mouth. She just makes me angry! She runs her mouth to create controversy and get attention. If she really cares about all these issues so much, why doesn't she DO something about it instead of running that fat pie trap of hers (by which I mean big, loud mouth--not a reference to her weight) .
post #23 of 82
You know the worst part of it? She's 100% WRONG about the soldier's deaths not getting coverage! There is a body count every single day on the news. Every day! Maybe if she paid attention to more than herself and Trump she would notice something like that.

She really should go back to comedy because her attempts at political commentary are just ridiculous!
post #24 of 82
I don't really have any insight to offer on this except to say that, as an overweight person, I'd appreciate it if people would keep the fat comments to themselves. Saying that she should just keep her "fat slobbering mouth" shut or that she'd be more interested if the recall involved human food instead of pet food is hurtful and completely unnecessary, and it does absolutely nothing to lend weight or credibility to your comments regarding this issue. You're not being funny or insightful; you're just being mean.

I agree. All I tend to hear on my local news is what is on entertainment tonight it seems . I'm much more interested in politics and my community thank-you very much.

I agree with you. It is plain rude and childish if you ask me. If you have a problem with her political stances, then I don't see why you don't just respond to her political stance...no, instead you have to pick on her physical characteristics....way to go there!

I don't see what one thing has to do with the other. Personally, I really used to like Rosie when she had her own show, but lately she just gets on my nerves! She is so full of herself and her opinion is the only valid one in her viewpoint! I'm sick of her!

That's my feelings on the matter, really. Yes, Rosie is overweight. Her weight doesn't invalidate her opinions or make her a bad person. I may or may not agree with her opinions, but if you're using her weight against her, I'm more likely to disagree with you just because you're poking at a sore spot of mine. ("You" and "you're" being used in a general sense, not directed at LokisMum, who I'm agreeing with.) I'm fat. I'm not stupid, uneducated, uncultured or incapable of making insightful comments. Likewise, Rosie is fat. That doesn't make her stupid, either. (Some of her comments, on the other hand ...)

Hope you didn't take offense to my comment about her big fat pie trap (mouth). You can have a big mouth without being overweight. Saying someone has a big fat mouth is not a reference to one's weight--at least I didn't mean it as such and wouldn't take it as such. I am sorry if it was misunderstood, though

I did take it in that context, so thank you for the clarification. I guess I'm a little sensitive about the issue.

I just cannot stand Rosie anyway. I have only watched the View a few times since she has been on it and don't plan on watching it again until she is gone. She needs to learn to keep her stupid comments to her self.
Yes our soldiers fighting to keep us free is a big issue but it is also completely seperate from the tainted pet food issue. The tainted food still needs to be publicized. The war is on the news everyday. I hear every morning about what is going on with the war.
