Apr 9 Looking For a Better Read commented on Study Says American Corporations, Including Microsoft, Are Keeping More Than $2 Trillion Overseas.
@6 The same political doctrine that opposes one-time amnesty for illegal immigrants as merely encouraging future illegal activity promotes one-time tax amnesty as a way to allow corporations to come out of the shadows.
Apr 7 Looking For a Better Read commented on The Percentage of Americans Who Worry "A Great Deal" About Climate Change.
Boiling frog effect - something that takes a long time to take hold doesn't seem to be all that painful, until you're suddenly dead.
Apr 3 Looking For a Better Read commented on If You Have Enough Money to Buy a Politician, You Are Living In a Golden Age.
@7 - Constitutional Amendment. Senators Sanders and Warren must take point.
Apr 1 Looking For a Better Read commented on Forget The Last Nine Years: How the How I Met Your Mother Finale Pissed Off The World.
@9 - Dammit, how about a spoiler alert, you hater of fun and freedom.
Mar 7 Looking For a Better Read commented on Issaquah Students Go On Racist Rant Against Garfield Students.
@2 & 3 - the article linked states that no players were implicated.

WITH THAT SAID, I think an appropriate action for the school would be to forfeit the game, as this sort of shit reflects on the entire school. Nothing hurts a stupid teenager more than the scorn of their peers, and you can be sure that there would be more than a few very pissed off IHS players, students, and teachers ready to heap plenty of scorn on the idiots responsible for this.

Never mind, just looked at the Weingarten proposal.

@27 - I thought the Whole Foods was going to be across Alaska in what was, until the past six months, the giant unfinished Pit.
Mar 2 Looking For a Better Read commented on Slog Bible Study: Mark 11:20.
@23: So, Vagina Newtons? Consider me intrigued . . .
Feb 27 Looking For a Better Read commented on Editor of Pro-Segregation National Review Says the Arizona Anti-Gay Bill Was a Really Good Idea.
What if, instead of a baker, it's an emergency room doctor? What if, instead of a cake, it's an insurance policy, a mortgage, or an apartment? Admittedly I did not read the bill, but I would be surprised to learn that it was written to narrowly include only trivial trades and products.
Feb 25 Looking For a Better Read commented on Arizona Governor Likely to Veto Anti-Gay Bill.
I kind of hope these bills do pass, but with one added requirement - if you wish to exercise your "deeply-held religious beliefs" on this manner, you have to declare it before hand, loud and proud. Neon yellow poster in your storefront window, banner ad at the top of your website, however else you promote your business, you declare your intention to be a bigot. Personally, I'd like to know which of the businesses I frequent hold these beliefs. I'm sure the fundies who want to reserve their right to refuse business on the grounds of hatred and fear would certainly support my right to take my business elsewhere.
