COMTE is not putting up with any of your bullshit.
in the past hour COMTE commented on KOMO Reports Ranting of Gun Advocates at Olympia Rally After Cascade Mall Shooting.
@23:

Those credible studies don't exist because the gun manufacturers and their mouthpiece the NRA have been successful in preventing legislation that would actually allow such studies to be performed.

@24:

So, where are all these so-called "good guys (and presumably gals, although they're seldom mentioned) with guns" when the "bad guys with guns" are shooting up malls or movie theatres or nightclubs or wherever? If there are so many of you out there, why aren't you preventing or diminishing the horrible loss of life? I mean, that's why you HAVE the guns in the first place, right? So you can rush in, be the hero, and save the day, right?
in the past few hours COMTE commented on Presidential Debate: The Stranger's Live-Slog.

"Some voters aren't sure if they really like this one candidate, but when they see the other candidate definitely not liking him, they're gonna decide they like him just a little bit more than they like her."
in the past few hours COMTE commented on Gary Johnson Is a Moron (And If You Vote For Him, You Are Too).
@80:

Ron Paul is a RINO - he's espoused strongly Libertarian platforms for most of his political career, and even ran as their presidential nominee in 1988. The only reason he switched to the GOP was because he was smart and ambitious enough to figure out the Libertarian Party was never going to be a success at the national level. As it is, his "Libertarian-Republican" faction represents one of the smallest identifiable constituency groups within the GOP, so even that branch of the ideology is marginal in terms of having any actual influence.

@21:

I would venture to bet the feeling is probably mutual...

@24:

I think, in this case at least, the "new rules" are that there are no rules. Herr Cheato-head can just let any random series of words fall out of his mouth, and so long as he doesn't insert a live baby in there to fill the gaping maw, he gets a free pass. His supporters seem to believe that facts don't matter, experience doesn't matter, knowledge and competence don't matter, presentation doesn't matter, demeanor and temperament don't matter - none of it matters to them, because for the most part they don't seem to possess any of those qualities themselves, and hey, you know, they get along just fine without them, so how valuable can they be for the most important job on the planet?

I ran out of alcohol about 15 minutes before the end - probably a GOOD thing.

@8:

We ALL would love better relations with Russia - but not at the expense of rolling over on our backs. Standing up to them is what's kept things relatively stable for the past, oh, 70 years or so. Russians respect strength. Being Putin's BFF =/= operating from a strong position.

That's just a thing it does: either it has delusions of grandeur, or it's got a bad case of MPD.
3:47 PM yesterday COMTE commented on Seattle Times Editorial Board Endorses Safe Injection Sites for Drug Users.

I can't imagine anyone with the money would even consider starting a print daily nowadays.

Ow, sick burn, fer sure. Let me guess: you were voted "Class Cut-up" in your Senior Yearbook, right?
