@4- Jane, you ignorant slut.
Social security is an insurance program. What makes it work, and it does, you ignorant slut, is that everyone contributes. And despite what your ignorant slut brain might believe, it is in no danger of going bankrupt soon. Any future shortfalls can be solved by doing away with the cap on contributions. Immigration also helps expand the insurance pool.
These are real world solutions, however, so most likely they are alien concepts to you.

@6- Thank you for providing further proof that all republicans are mentally and developmentally challenged cowardly morons easily misled because they fear everything.
Not that further proof was needed, but thanks.

As mentioned by others, I completely don't get the impulse of some vegetarians to try to recreate meat. There is so much great vegetarian food out there. Make a pakora or a veggie lumpia if you want fried street food. Make some dhosa. There is just so much great inspiration out there for veggie food.
Soy burgers? Veggie dogs? Qorn?
Just say no.

@4: a history of targeting disadvantaged communities for police harassment is the opening chapter of the ferguson story. What's going on now is the climax.
For what it's worth goldy at horsesass called this cop out on his blog during the occupy protests for being a particularly dickish authoritarian.
So, fair enough, he's not busting heads at the moment, but he has a history of disrespect for the community and his superiors. I would put him high on a list of cops most likely to go full ferguson.

Are Colbert and Stewart more valuable to the debate than Fox News?
Faux news isn't part of the debate.
Unless standing in the middle if the auditorium pissing oneself while screaming obscenities and eating ones boogers is now defined as "part of the debate".

Contact the Seattle City Council and ask them to de-militarize the SPD:

Dear (insert council member),

In light of the recent tragic events in Ferguson, Missouri, I am calling on you to draft and introduce legislation to remove all military grade weaponry from the Seattle Police Department.
Automatic weapons, armored personnel carriers, tanks, etc. are of no use in effective community policing. They're designed for warfare, nothing else. Their availability to the police sends a message to both the police and the community that the citizenry is to be viewed as an enemy to be defeated. This serves neither the community nor the police, and creates division and distrust. Deployment of these weapons by local police forces is always for the purpose of suppressing dissent, and their use constitutes a violation of every citizens constitutional rights.

Thank you,
(. )
