Murray and Cantwell have staff locally and in DC that are happy to take your calls (and may even arrange a meeting fi you ask). My cowardly republican congressman has shut off his phones (all three local offices and DC) and quit responding to email. I think he is starting to get the msg. Fucking coward.

Do you know what the fuck a muscle shirt is? That thing, awesome as it is, is not a muscle shirt -- it's a tank top. Also, the comments under the shirt ad are hilarious.

And JC, what's with the email 'scandal'? I've not seen anything remotely problematic reported from the wikileaks DWS shit (OMG, some folks there were pulling for Hillz -- SHOCKING to expect that the DNC would be behind long-time party mover and shaker!!!). Exactly the same situation as the 'classified' emails that Hillz supposedly lied about -- it ended up being a handful of innocuous messages with no real content. The more of this conspiracy-theory type shit I see out the far left the more I think you guys are full of gamer-gate style anti-woman sentiment.

@26: I don't like Hillz, DWS, or the democratic apparatus at all. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool lefty. But there are so many more votes to the right of the democratic platform than to the left. Sorry. National elections are about coalition building which necessitates compromising your principles. I caucused for Bernie, donated, told all my friends, etc. I think he would have been a much better candidate. But I have no qualms at all about voting Hillary. I would encourage you 'far lefters' to be pragmatic -- but if not, fine, take your toys a go play elsewhere. Our best chance to win, esp. this election, is with a center-left coalition which will contain a lot of voters you and I find odious.

WTF do all you people do after work? "Drinking until bed" sounds exactly what I and all of my acquaintances do all the time. Dude should get the fuck out if he's not happy, but I gotta feel for his wife with all his bitching about a few drinks.
Jul 19, 2016 Micah commented on Dan Savage on Jill Stein: Just No..
A vote for a 3rd party is half of a vote for Trump. Remember 2000, hold your nose, and pull the lever for hillz. Fuck the republicans.

Jul 14, 2016 Micah commented on Five Concrete Things You Can Do to Make Black Lives Matter.
The police in the US (esp. in the South, but throughout the country) have been historically (up to the present) responsible for enforcing the racial order in this country. This is one reason police killings of black men are so emotionally freighted. Conservative christian right-wing republican straight white american males are afraid of 'inner-city blacks' and see police actions in light of the perceived protection their tribe accrues (and tend to valorize cops no matter how backwards they are). From the other side of the racial divide aggressive policing looks like enforcement of racist systems. Personally I think the BLM perspective is basically correct. It does seem unfair, however, that we (white America, including liberals) have left the cops in this situation. We need to take responsibility for allowing a racist justice system to develop and persist while patting ourselves on the back for 'democracy'.
May 5, 2016 Micah commented on Lawyer Who Allegedly Told City Council Members to "End Themselves" Already Facing Possible Bar Suspension.
@6, @12: Have you considered that the female councilmembers are representing the legitimate views of their constituents? This arena deal does not seem as bad as some (including the deals for the existing arenas in SODO), but voting against having the city bend over and spread 'em for pro sports could be construed as protecting the city's interests (i.e. "the greater good"). It certainly does not help the arena's cause that every time the topic comes up tons of backwards dudes start slinging misogyny, homophobia, and general nastiness at the political opposition. If that is the kind of dude pro sports is going to bring into Seattle, please build your stupid sportsball stadium on the eastside.

@3: not sure the CD community is buying into reefer madness as much as being pissed off that when weed was illegal, they were going to jail but when it's legal, white 'outsiders' are running the profitable stores.

Personally, it's really hard for me to get upset about a weed store next to a church. I say build another one.
