Sep 15 RVPMB commented on Mr. Robot Recap: The Penultimate Episode of Season Two Was Brought to You By Amazon's Alexa.
This isn't much of a recap, but then again, it wasn't much of an episode. More questions, no answers. I've lost patience with the lack of pay-off this season.

@7. No. The burden should not be on the speaker.

Isn't life its own trigger warning? Life is rough and shitty, which should be apparently to nearly everyone. It's sort of a given. People who wish to express themselves shouldn't have the burden to disclaim that life is rough and shitty every time there is a school lecture, discussion, forum post, or whatnot, just because some people may not like the content of said discourse or may react unfavorably to it.

Awesome article title though. I peed a little when I read it. Also, the line about the library was pure gold. GOLD!

It was pretty lame as endings go: Dumb people split up and leave the safety of their camp to enter enemy territory and take on superior forces for no particular reason. Then: "Oh look, the road is blocked by smarmy murderers. Oh look, another road is blocked by smarmy murderers. Oh look, Carol was shot by a smarmy murderer. Oh look, yet another road is blocked by a smarmy murders. Oh look, a smarmy murder is giving a smarmy speech and bludgeoning someone to death." The end.

No. I'll vote for her in the general if I must, but the primary/caucuses are where progressives will make their voices heard by voting for Bernie, the only actual progressive in the mainstream parties.
Mar 21 RVPMB commented on The Seattle Times Editorial Board Wants More Parking Around Light Rail Stations.
@9 - That is pretty much my story. I leave near the Columbia City and Mt. Baker stations, but getting there means driving, since the main bus line is the #7, which only runs north/south on Rainier and there aren't any east/west connections to rail from the surrounding neighborhoods. It takes longer for me to walk to and wait for a #7 than it does to walk directly to a station. It's much faster to drive to a station and park at the rail station. Maybe it's selfish, but I can drive to a station in 5 minutes, but walking or taking the bus takes 30. Multiply that x2 for a round trip and there's no contest. I don't have an extra hour each time I want to ride rail.

@ 3 - Also agree. And he was CGI and looked terrible.
Mar 1 RVPMB commented on Bernie Sanders Has a Stronger Lead Over Trump Than Hillary Clinton in a New National Poll.
I'd love to see a woman president, but Clinton has never met a bank or big business or war that she didn't like. She might be a skilled campaigner, but she's a terrible Democrat. She doesn't even think single payer health care is worth fighting for! Once she's in office, she'll tack right (as the author predicts) and we'll get four (or eight) more years of the same neoliberal nightmare we've been living in for the last 40 years.
Feb 15 RVPMB commented on The Walking Dead Recap: The Convenient Rocket Launcher.
@2: Yeah, we've pretty much seen the two main threats in the TWD universe: zombie hordes and malicious humans. TWD has shown us these threats time and again. Not sure what they could show us that we haven't seen before.
