Hey @6...by your language it's clear you're not a Democrat. So thanks for the advice, but we'll figure this out on our own. And unless you backed Trump, you likely didn't win either. So on what pedestal are you elevating your theories of political strategy?
Sep 23 Timothy commented on Kshama Sawant Provides an Excellent Assessment of the Political Situation in the US.
I am a liberal progressive Democrat. I previously supported Sawant to move our joint goals forward. But no longer. If Sawant is unable to see the benefit of a coalition, then I have no interest in helping to building the platform on which she attacks my party. And really, on which she attacks progressive values; progressives have to make progress to be progressive. Sawant sits in her City Council Seat with support from a majority of Democrats who elected her. I will make the case that it's now time to remove that support.

Sep 13 Timothy commented on Olympia Punk Band G.L.O.S.S. Reject Epitaph Records' $50,000 Contract.
And in keeping with the ethic of their band and music, why the long screed? They should have just scrawled F***K You! across the contract in blood.

$50,000 K is tiny. Do major labels really scoop up bands with so little money? Why would ANY band sell their rights for $50k? I assume (hope) there were other promises to spend on the band and promote the band (all of which ends up coming out of the bands sales). But, $50k?

@5...OK. I don't consider you an honest interlocutor. The idea that Clinton needs to reveal every detail to you is simply a notion I don't ascribe to. And I doubt you really do either; this was just another moment to ding her.

& re: trump? The medical records he has released are a joke, and nothing like the medical records HRC has released. But then again, I don't buy that you actually care to have a logical discussion about this.

& @2... "Conceal the fact?" As I recall, you don't like her to begin with, but...

The amount of transparency that some people want from our candidates has surpassed what is humanly feasible in our elections. And has likely crossed over into voyeurism rather than sound scrutiny.
Sep 12 Timothy commented on What a Famous Primatologist Can Tell Us About the Obsession With Hillary's Health.
@1 & Charles...unlikely we can point to a single moment in any campaign; I think we tend to over-emphasize singular moments (like Dukakis in the Tank, though that was terrible).

But we also shouldn't under-emphasize them. They add to the mix.

Save Re-bar in a new building. That building sucks.
Sep 8 Timothy commented on The Election Is Tightening—Don't Waste Your Vote.
@89...you're right! You win! Stein is a viable candidate with legitimate experience to govern this Country and I should take their devotion to her more seriously. Thanks for enlightening me.
Sep 8 Timothy commented on The Election Is Tightening—Don't Waste Your Vote.
@73...I've engaged Stein (and Sanders b4 that) voters in plenty of serious discussions about deep policy issues. Spoken at length about serious topics. And have just come to the conclusion that they really aren't interested in having an actual dialogue. They tend to like their outsider tribalism, their purity of position, and their tantrums. I'm simply done catering to them, because this meme of "just treat us nicely! or we'll take our toys and go home" is boring, old, and I now believe, simply untrue. So you go ahead and continue to play their game. I'm going to just call them idiots.
