@16 dude, that is so incredibly condescending to the captain of the ship. Trust me, people who work is dangerous fields are used to it. But to go on your line of thought, I'm assuming you're against oil rigs in general, as they are one of the riskiest workplaces in the developed world. Or maybe soldiers? Or police officers? These are all professions where the risk of nightmares are quite high.
Lastly, don't you believe in the 1st amendment?

@48 have you ever thought about how your son would react to reading what you write here? You called a black dude a simpleton for sharing his experience on profiling.
Isn't your son half black? Do you have any interest in how the police might interact with him?
I know you like to think you're the adult here, but seriously no respectable person writes the way you write. Civility goes a long way - especially if you are trying to convince someone they just simply needed to be civil to avoid lethal force.
I know you'll just skip addressing this comment, you always avoid any moment of self-awareness or even the abstract notion of your family as something beyond your property.
However, I am quite curious as to how you'd explain to your son your behavior on slog. You've bragged about kicking gay people out of your rentals, your obsession with Dan Savage is boarderline stalking to the point where you bring his child into it and your weird parental issues oozing out of nearly every comment. Lastly, you are a self proclaimed conservative arguing non-stop on a left leaning website. That makes you a troll. Being a troll is a weird, sad and lonely thing to do.

commented on Mayor Ed Murray Wants to Ban Smoking in Parks, and the City Says There's Nothing Unfair About That
This a lot of comments about a law thatl probably ding 10 people a year tops.
I'm sure the fierce defending smoke, the strong anti probably used to smoke or lost a loved one to cancer.
Honestly, I used to smoke. I really enjoy not smoking and encourage others to quit as well. I dislike littering and find it annoying that many smokers disregard that. Also it kills you, but probably not as fast as drinking, guns, chilling on the couch and good old cheeseburgers.
Lastly, Raindrop is a fucking moron.

@3 it may not be treason but it certainly weakens America's standing in the world. Which ironically is what republicans accuse Obama of repeatedly.
I know you hate all things democratic but normalizing relationships with Iran is a major step in stabilizing the Middle East and these guys very easily could have hindered that process. At a certain point you need to grow up, drop the petty partisan crap and do what is best for the country and the world.
