Feb 13 Clara T commented on You Deserve Better Than Fifty Shades Darker—We All Do.
I'm waaaaaay too good for this poorly written anti-feminist tripe, and truly pity the hundreds of thousands of mainstream suckers who've enjoyed tens of millions of extra orgasms since they unfortunately came across it. So wrong, so sad. If only we could muster enough collective smug to talk those poor victims back into not fucking.
Feb 13 Clara T commented on A Judge's Decision Today Could Stop the City from Unfairly Trashing Homeless People's Belongings.
This is a tricky issue in that it requires fair discretion from low-level city workers, and no one is going to be able to be fair all the time, much less overworked crews of career garbage removers.

Take a walk down under the south end of the Ballard bridge were a sizable faction of Jungle residents seem to have moved when that little paradise was shut down a year ago. Tell me what's just abandoned trash and what's not - you can't. At least 50% of the stuff/trash down there could be reasonably argued either way. And it's totally unreasonable to expect the city to track down the transient owner of every piss and rain-soaked filthy mattress and work through some perverse version of the Hoarders tv show. The effect of this law suit will be that effectively we can't clean up homeless camps at all.

In the meantime it's getting positively ripe down under that bridge with the stink of the human shit that's mixed in with some of the garbage/stuff. Given that as a city we allow people to live in these places for years, a reasonable first step would be to deliver those people a couple of toilets so the poop and piss could be taken out of the equation. And a sharps disposal for the needles. And maybe even a tank to dispense clean drinking water - hey why not dream big ...

Dude who got shot has a shitty lawyer - there are 100 great lawyers in town who'd jump at the chance to make the shooter and the cops accountable.

Hey 21 free speech IS great; people are threatening violence and threatening his family. If that's A-okay with you, you better fucking pray no one ever out you! Or is there some sort if disconnect of empathy and sliding set of princioles at work with you? Obviously yes. Personally I prefer that you're anonymous - much more fun to picture just a soft rosy mouth and weak chin sputtering pudding on a keyboard in mama's basement.

Yeah Cauce is a weak leader, peter-principle type.8

And anyone who can't see the bright lines between free speech and hate speech and free apeech and criminal harassment is blinded by ideology.
Jan 25 Clara T commented on Trumphoria: Dow Jones Industrial Average Hits 20,000.
Correction is coming sooner rather than later - market has close to tripled in 8 years but gdp hasn't. Whole market's already a bubble as far as P/E goes. Recovery has been slow and steady but that just means the normal historical down-cycle will happen a little later than usual. Trump will do and say enough crazy destabilizing shit that eventually (and soon) some critical mass of investors will get spooked and the dominoes will go down.

That's my take anyway - went to all cash last week, so got my nickel behind the narrative I see playing out (admittedly from the cheap seats). 20-30 percent correction by summer 2018 is what I see in the crystal ball, might get left standing at the station but would rather bet that the dicks running shit now flame out sooner rather than later.
Jan 6 Clara T commented on Tacocat to Play Coachella Despite Its Owner's Odious Political Views.
Tacocat is one of the most saavy bands at staying in the media that I've ever scene. Someone in the band is a PT Barnum-type promotor in punk clothing. All news is good news apparently.

It's too bad that some other band hasn't filled this cultural slot because Tacocat is the most awful type of watered-down throwback no talent fun fun for the masses excuse for music and "movement." They're the Cherry Poppin' Daddies of this decade. In ten years you're gonna feel embarrassed every time you skim past them on your phone.
