commented on A Restaurant Owner and a Socialist: An Exercise in Having a Good Conversation
Here's the ugly reality no one wants to admit. Minimum skills employed at 40hrs a week still are minimum skills which will pay minimum wage which is not very much. Pay them $500 an hour and they will still be doing minimum skill work. 40hours a week of minimum skill work is not worth $15 an hour. The solution is to get more education and leave the minimum skill work to H.S. students who will be happy to take the $9+ an hour and still live with the folks. This argument is hiding behind the money smoke screen when really we're wanting to talk about people with small skill sets and no desire to improve them.

commented on Widow of Murdered Ballard Man Forgives His Alleged Killer
#7 you and I have "easy" access to a gun too. That is not what makes a man a killer with a gun. In fact I grew up with rifles and never shot a human being. This is not the "gun culture" playing out. This is something else. I don't condone the action at all, as you say it is sad, but not all the way around. I have to treat White not like a stupid kid, but like a thinking rational human being, until he proves otherwise. He has proven otherwise and now enters the realm of being a murderer.
commented on New Poll Shows Highest Support for Gay Marriage Ever, Pope Comes Out for Civil Unions
#6 and #11 "Civil Unions" will never replace "Marriage" in all the legal documents and etc. You may now dispose that idea as useless and not doable. It's not doable also because you are using it to still deny Gay citizens "marriage". To prevent Gay folk from marriage, we'll DESTROY marriage for all! Sort of like the cartoon villain. That's mean and you should go sit in the corner.
