commented on FBI Finds New Clinton Emails in Anthony Weiner Investigation
Yeah, Nate Silver was pointing out this is just an "abundance of caution" thing but Republican congressmen ran with it.
Maybe that will prompt an FBI press conference clarifying the matter, or maybe just wrap it up before the election's over. They'll be pretty upset if Clinton's cleared twice by the FBI.
Of course, we can expect another four to eight more years of this sort of nonsense.

commented on Seattle Activist Supporting Standing Rock Asks: "When Does the Genocide Stop?"
@3, not really. The pipeline was originally scheduled to run near white neighborhoods but that got shut down because people were worried it might break and spill and make people sick. So they rerouted it instead next to an indian reservations.
Basically a big "fuck you, white people are more important," move. Just like all sorts of previous cases where natives were driven off their lands, or their lands were fucked up for the benefit of white people. Fucking up people's land, based on race, nationality, etc. is pretty damn close to genocide.
