Jul 6 blackhook commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Taking a Break, Breaking a Heart, Casting a Ballot.
This guy is enough to give pause to all of us who are "wary of guns." He comes across as the stereotype of an insecure male gun owner—who fees the need to carry his gun for protection (from what? ...black bogie men? ...ISIS terrorists? ...little green men from Mars?). My guess is that, over the course of many months, eventually he made some insensitive comment(s) that clued her in to who he really was. And he shows very little, if any, introspection into the vibe he gave off to her ...the just-under-the-surface implied violence in his letter is no doubt an extension of this vibe. Sadly, we'll never know the outcome, but here's hoping this woman stays safe...
Jun 21 blackhook commented on Washington Judge Says Hospitals that Provide Maternity Care Must Provide Abortions On Site.
I'm appalled that the Catholic Criminal Empire has taken over so many hospitals in Washington state. Reports that young women have been counseled with Bible verses (!) instead of actual medical advice, in Catholic-owned hospitals, are beyond grotesque. Hard to believe this is happening in the "enlightened" 21st century...

ok, it now appears that @16 was correct ...the shooter was a pathetic, self-hating, closeted gay man. Hitting up guys on Jack'd & had been spotted at Pulse b4. Perfectly explains his bizarre & violent act...

Yes absolutely @16 ...no straight man secure in his own sexuality would give a gay bar much thought, much less consider something violent.

What @5 said...! Dan, you could get this message out very eloquently, as we've seen you do on Bill Maher et al so many times.
May 3 blackhook commented on Donald Trump Wins Indiana, Will Be GOP Nominee.
Hahahahaha!! ...The Repugs get EXACTLY what they deserve. They nourished their "Southern Strategy," of veiled racism, it took root & now has grown to monstrous proportions. Hillary will destroy him in November.
May 3 blackhook commented on Donald Trump Solves JFK Assassination, Mocks Puny Human Concepts of Reality.
This race is not between Donald Trump & Ted Cruz ...it is all about whether 'God' is dead—or whether He is just an imaginary fairy-tale being. If He doesn't deliver, it is high time to disband Christianity once & for all, and to worship the one true Deity: Praise Bob, and may the Hour of Slack reign forever, hallelujah!!!

Apr 26 blackhook commented on Donald Trump Sweeps Five NE Primaries, Hillary Takes Three, Possibly Four.
Republicans get EXACTLY what they have created, and what they deserve. The roots go back to their infamous Southern Strategy—with all its veiled racism—only now it's out in the open, along with rampant xenophobia, misogyny, homophobia and outright hatred of anything perceived to be "different" from a phantom 1950's American ideal by dimwits & other dregs of our country.

That said, Trump has ZERO chance of actually being elected. Hillary will destroy him in the general election, and hopefully will bring Congress around from the Dark Side as well.
Apr 26 blackhook commented on Vegans Are Worried That Bamboo Garden Is Serving Animal Products.
I don't get the "faux meat" thing. Since vegans are deliberately avoiding meat—among other things—why would you want a fake product dressed up as meat? (btw, that does look & sound horrible). There are so many delicious vegan foods that don't masquerade as meat, so why bother?
