commented on Do You Still Trust Hillary Clinton?
Wait, I thought we were supposed to hate Hillary because she was too moderate on health care reform. Now you're saying we're supposed to hate her because she was too far to the extreme left?
Hmmm, maybe her years of experience in government has taught her that coming to Congress with an extreme position will get shot down so you have to make smaller changes, little by little over time.

@12, I don't disagree with you but your (our, I voted for him too) candidate lost this election. The next step is that you hold your nose and vote for the person who doesn't intend to destroy everything you care about.
The important next step that many (especially liberal) voters ignore is to keep working at it. Keep working until the liberal 18-29 year olds are 30-39 year olds and have "trained in" a new generation of 18-29 year olds. We get to watch the over 60 crowd die off and leave the country to a new generation.
The strong liberal agenda isn't happening this year, and realistically might not happen next year. The kind of serious change we want takes time and if liberals get dispirited and lazy (as often happens in non-presidential election years) then conservatives win.
You want to see real change happen, get your liberal friends to reliably vote in state and local elections. The only way to get the House back from extremist conservatives is to undo their redistricting which happens at the state level.
commented on UW Sophomores Invent Gloves That Translate Sign Language Into Text and Speech
If you want to get technical, they're probably actually translating Signed Exact English, not actual American Sign Language. ASL has it's own grammar and very different sentence structure so from the look of things they're actually doing SEE translation which is a bit simpler. It obviously helps the deaf individual communicate with others but it doesn't solve the other issue of them not being able to hear the response.
Still, great invention.
commented on Meanwhile in Michigan: Substitute Teacher Fired For Using the Word "Vagina"
You can't say Vagina? So, she should have said twat instead? Maybe say the paintings look like bearded clams? Fish tacos? If you can't use the actual medical term (leaving aside that vulva would indeed be more accurate) then what the fuck can you say?
Honestly though, I don't think O'keefs paintings of flowers look like vulva's. Her paintings of vulva's however do look quite a bit like flowers.
