It's not very popular.

Other groups that police themselves better: the gluten-intolerant, cat owners, people that don't completely hate Counting Crows, people that have never read the Harry Potter books.
Aug 7 dirge commented on Lunchtime Quickie: Does This Viral Video Make You Want to Stop Eating Beef?.
I don't eat it myself but I have no problem with people eating beef, provided they're willing to pay the true cost.

Without the massive subsidies the beef industry currently enjoys that T-bone would $50 at the store. That price is only going to go up as the nationwide drought becomes the new normal.

@6 Bush, Perry, Rubio
Jun 26 dirge commented on Dear Matt Lauer: Are You Kidding Me with This Shit?!?.
The basis for the first question is more legit, even if it's phrased horribly, with the weaselly "some people are speculating" phrase. Asking if it's why she got the job is low.

Barra has been tasked with rehabilitating GM's image and in her first video to the company said about the recall scandal, "As a member of the GM family and as a mom with a family of my own, this really hits home for me." She's the one being questioned by Congress and grilled by the media, so it's reasonable to question how a female CEO might change those optics.

The 2nd question is just pure sexism.

Oldman is an old white man. Give one a podium and they'll say something wrong.

But he likes Krauthammer? That was too far.

This is fantastic news.
Hopefully the new curriculum will be given a chance to succeed.
Jun 11 dirge commented on Dave Brat Says "Free Markets Is Not a Right or Left Issue," Also Says His Win "Came Straight Out of Heaven".
I don't understand how this is even a question.
Even the topic he was prepared for last night (minimum wage) elicited a nonsensical response.

I'd say that I pity this guy's students, but I actually pity the people that will be forced to listen to his students blather about the invisible hand and Mises and takings and all that.
Jun 11 dirge commented on Mayor Murray Hires Kate Joncas, “Highly Influential” Downtown Business Advocate, As Deputy Mayor.
So her reward for undue influence is more influence?
