I guess everyone's entitled to their opinion just as long as you don't speak it if it's not the popular one .

Renaming the street to Paul Walker St. would only make criminal douchebag street racers turn that street into their playground.

Phony scandal.

A&E knew all along what they had signed up for.

A&E thought they were "mainstream" in their reaction and found out the rest of the country isn't San Francisco.

Phil was just exercising his opinion nothing more for after all he has a right to free speech too. given how much that rock cost hope Dwayena and Gabbie have it in writting who keeps it in case of divorce. and if the people in that neighbor hood don't want the street changed its their say they live there. and looks like Dax is going for the unshaven look now. plus Merry xmas and happy Hanuakah to all

Phil, a 67 year old man, with an undergraduate degree from Louisiana Tech, which he attended on a full ride scholarship as the quarterback of the division one school.
He decided not to play in the NFL because it didn't pay that well then, so he let his back up play, his name was Terry Bradshaw. Phil didn't stop the fancy book learning there, he went on to get his Masters Degree in Education from Louisiana Tech. Don't let the beard fool you.

Phil also has a black grandchild, surprise!
Maybe not so racist. How many 67 year old have a Masters Degree and a black grandchild?

RAQUEL and BARRON HILTON must have had the same 7th grade teacher... REALLY RAQUEL... REHABILLIATE... THAT is ALMOST as embarrassing as your NATE KING COLE line... which BTW was NOT an accident (the look on your face when you were "corrected" is classic)... way to "represent"...

I really enjoy it when people publicly make a fool of themselves by statements they make and then stand behind those statements by quoting the Bible. Using that same analogy, 1 John 1:9 states "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." If Hitler had confessed his sins of the Holocaust, he would be forgiven!

Harvey... you are an attorney. I realize that you went to some third tier law school in CA but still, I assume that you took a course in constitutional law. You know full well that "freedom of speech" ONLY applies to speech involving the government. You could have educated your minions by pointing out that an EMPLOYER can do whatever they ****ing want when your speech cuts into their bottom line. There is no freedom of speech issue.

AND as for the ring issue... talk about a hypocrite. You drive a Porsche. I do not live in CA so I could have never observed you driving that Porsche. The ONLY way that I could know that you have a Porsche is by your telling me (directly of indirectly). You have bragged about your Porsche... you showed pictures of it after your accident. That was just you being a braggart.

Harvey, I'm jealous of your Porsche, too.
