All this hooplah over Paula Deen is so ridiculous. I am so sick of listening to the "experts" all of sudden jump on the band wagon to tar and feather Paula for cooking the way she does. Up until it was revealed that she was diabetic, everyone loved her cooking. Of course anyone with at least 5 brain cells had to realize if you ate the kind of food Paula is famous for, you'd be hard pressed to live a "long" life....at least most of us couldn't handle that much fat, sugar and salt for too many years.
I guess when I'd see her cooking one of her specialties, I figured...okay, looks good, sounds good, but not for me. I don't need some expert telling me not to eat it.......and I guess that's what has me so mad right now......there's that element out there that assume the rest of us are too ignorant to have any common sense, so they're going to make sure we're "okay".
I hate to break it to them, but America didn't become the greatest nation in the world because it was occupied by a bunch of idiots.........granted there is a certain segment of society that likes being told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it......but I'd bet my last dollar the majority don't want it or need it.
Leave Paula alone.....and as my children used to tell each other......"you're not the boss of me!"
