  1. Bobby lost the pilot, but afterwards, he lost only one battle once the series began.

  3. Well, things don't change when one won't make an effort to change them. It's called laissez faire.

  4. Daphne Oz?! I can't stand her. What in the heck is she doing on FN? I stopped watching The Chew because I couldn't stomach any more of her and her entitled and inflated opinion of herself.

  5. I think these people have a good chance to make a success of this place. I was glad to see that Jaliwa took to heart what Irvine and her kids said and attempted to move forward and change.
    I'm hoping that now that other people in the community got to try the restaurant, they might attract a clientele outside of just the mosque members.
    I do have to say that I was shocked the health department hadn't closed down the restaurant since they were operating out of coolers rather than proper refrigeration units!

  6. I hope they have success. Unlike too many restaurant owners featured on the show, they really seem to care about fixing things.

  7. I thought so too. Their attitude reminded me very much of the young couple that own Pasion Latin Fusion here in Albuquerque that RI visited last season. They are doing very well and have taken what they were shown and made it work for them. They have nothing but good to say about the show and Robert Irvine. Those are the type of people I enjoy watching him help.

  9. This is not a blind taste test. First Bobby Flays heat is apparant so the judges know which dish is fromm Flay. Also. in this episode Bobby was smiling broadly when they were commenting favorably about his dish.

  10. I probably would have just had a sign that said "As seen on Food Network" without mentioning RI. There are some negative connotations of being on RI such as bad food and dirty kitchens.

  11. You evidently don't understand that there is a wide range of beliefs and practices among Muslims, just as there are among Christians and Jews—although I suppose you don't like Jews either. And you homophobia is your problem, not a problem of the gay community. Really, you might need to find an isolated island somewhere with no television or social contact where you can make your own rules.

  12. homosexual sex is sexual perversion...........and ill stay right where I am and associate with whom I want............and I do make my own rules as to who I spend my money with

  13. Methinks the lady doth protest too much

    ReplyDelete
  14. And which lady would that be? I doubt Wade is female, and that's the person to whom you directed your response.

  15. It's just an expression one uses to indicate that someone "disgusted" by the GLBT community is probably gay themselves.

  16. Okay. Got it! And I'm totally with you.

    I doubt the place will survive. Even though people publicly bleat on about diversity and a post racial America, the reality is that many people are not comfortable going to an all Black area. In addition the fact that it is also by a Mosque will really scare off the average person that is not a black and/or Muslim person. That means they will have to be supported by the same small group of people that will have to come back multiple times a week and that isn't very likely.

    I think the above post and mine certainly is not advocating prejudice, but is reflecting reality in the real world outside the small liberal progressive bubble that watches Democracy now and believes everything they are told on MSNBC. The real world just doesn't function like that - sad as that might be.

    the reason whites were there was because a TV crew was there and they knew they would be safe, also they could pretend to be enlightened and the blacks could pretend to be all encompassing - once the TV show stops filming and leaves town, believe me, the customer demographics will revert back to before.

    I think the Bedford person was just reflecting a de facto reality for a large part of society. In a country of 300 million, there will of course be exceptions to general rules and some people of different races can successfully mix together, especially in the military. I did 20 years in the Navy and that really helped me become multicultural, but I also know how people really think and act when they don't think they are being monitored and we are still far from a post racial society. Racism isn't just amongst whites. It is a human problem and condition all over the world. The only really way to solve it is to have open, frank discussions without attacking anyone no matter how unpopular their views may be. Prejudicial statements should be calmly refuted by facts and hard scientific data if available rather than ad hominum attacks such as the ones you have clumsily perpetrated.

    wow - do you even live in this plane of existence or do you inhabit the 5th dimension in another part of the universe? Is all your bum kissing an attempt to clear a guilty conscience. Just curious as you seem to flatter way too much for someone you don't know or even have visited. Don't you know that these reality TV shows are staged and therefore not "real" reality?

    To each his own. That is what America is supposed to be about. yes Dyer's views are not popular in the Pop Culture of today, but many people albeit secretly share his views. So what? Unpopular views and speech are what needs to be protected or else we don't have freedom and democracy. Too many times über liberals try to shutdown views contrary to their own. Instead one should accept the views and then combat them with calm reason and hard data rather than attacking the person or trying to get him or her fired, hurt, or killed. How does that help the "progressive" movement or restore freedom to our land?

    Some Jews may not like the goyim nor mix with them, but they don't kill them, they just leave them alone, whereas Fundamentalist islam has this to say about Jews: The BBC aired a Panorama episode, entitled A Question of Leadership, which reported that al-Sudais referred to Jews as "the scum of the human race" and "offspring of apes and pigs", and stated, "the worst ... of the enemies of Islam are those ... whom he ... made monkeys and pigs, the aggressive Jews and oppressive Zionists and those that follow them ... Monkeys and pigs and worshippers of false Gods who are the Jews and the Zionists." Al Sudais is the Chief Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca - the center of worship in the Muslim world and as such His views represent the Muslim fundamentalist orthodoxy. I can quote Muslim leaders from all over the world with similar or worse views. At present Christians are being beheaded by ISIS forces in Iraq. Does this mean that all Muslims are like this? No - but even ten percent of a billion Muslim people is 100 million possible fundamentalist terrorists that have infiltrated western countries. Why take the risk and why associate with a group that wants to wipe Israel and Jewish people off the face of the earth. You are cutting your own throat so to speak by your naïve attitudes.

  24. Spot on Biff, nobody wants to say it though,but that's the first thought I had, like "that area, Muslim or not why would anybody run to eat there?" However, being smack together with a rundown building serving as a mosque is def. a no-go for many people. And all those young daughters wrapped in funereal black, it just doesn't speak to American friendliness, sorry but that's the truth.

  25. Subject-verb agreement counts.
