Okay, here's my question for the rappers. How do you prove how much money you threw at the ladies in the club? Do they need to step in with the cash, have a certified accountant standing there, count how much they've brought it then stand there a be a witness to make sure they toss ALL the money? I just don't get how they can prove all that.

I love the haters over on Carly Rae's thread. She's a loser and all kinds of names for daring to stand up for what she believes in and boycott the Scouts because of their policy but it's okay for the Scouts to stand up for what they believe in and not allow gay rights. This is what's wrong with today in the land of Hypocrites. Everyone has a right to their opinion, folks, whether you agree or not.

I'm going to repeat here, what I said on the Keisha thread. TSA wants to spend money the government doesn't have to buy new uniforms. Those same people bucking for that would change their minds if they were required to pay for that UNIFORM themselves. Man, the governments today is getting scary.

Harvey, nothing is Interesting so far about today's show except the posters here. Too bad you don't give us a shout out once in a while for being loyal to you.

Um, what's next, a tax write off for hiring a gaggle of strippers for your best friend's bachelor party? How about writing off all the money you spend at the casino because that's a business expense to promote yourself and pay the staff that work there. Meh!!!

How many of these "lil" rappers are there? I haven't heard of 99% of these rappers. Wouldn't it be better for their "image" to give that $$$ to inner city kids for education or something?
