commented on Barilla Pasta Is Reconsidering Gay Outreach
So is DeCecco (or any other brand) demonstrably "non-homophoic" or just not vocally homophobic? Because I think that matters if you're going to tout one thing as an alternative to the boycotted brand. Not saying I know either way since I haven't looked into it extensively, but a quick google of "dececco pasta gay" basically just pulls up all the "boycott barilla" pages - nothing about DeCecco being supportive of LGBT causes or rights.

The only thing I would add is that the managers who are forced to make the fries probably aren't doing much better financially than the people they're covering for, and are almost certainly making less than $15/hr themselves. So maybe cut them a little slack.
commented on Rand Paul Thinks Government Assistance Is "Servitude"
It's bullshit and he's an idiot, but I think another possible interpretation of what he is saying is that if people have a "right" to health care then he, the doctor, is enslaved - that the doctor would then have to provide for anyone who came along and demanded it. Remember, first and foremost people like Rand Paul are concerned with their own idea of "freedom" and don't give a fuck about anyone else.
