His videos are just awesome. His GOP Dropout videos of Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush are hilarious..

"Yet even with those words clearly saying the framers believed there should be limits placed on speech and the press, you don't see any kind of, like "Federal communications commission" handing out lists of words you can't say on TV or telling you your radio station can have so many watts and no more. Unconstitutional!"

First we have this thing called case law and the Supreme Court. We also had over 224 years of First Amendment Law. FCC licenses are different than Free Speech and prior restraint. It is about how laws, court decisions interpret how certain 1st Amendment cases falls under the 1st Amendment or are not protected.

Good Advice. It is painful with the quick break or the long lingering slow death of a relationship, however, the adult thing to do, is break up before the vacation with friends. The most painful way is to break up on vacation, the kick to the curb person, is isolated, confused, crying and overwhelm with emotions. Besides the person he or she relied on for emotional support is cut off. It is better for to do the deed for comfortable as possible surrounding for the breaker uppee.. From my experience, break up quickly, one made a firm decision, don't let it linger.. planned a couple weeks of grieving, and don't try a rebound relationship.. One has to mourn..
Sep 14 ferret commented on Edward Snowden Gains a Powerful Ally in His Legal Campaign for Clemency.
@4 Snowden had a security clearance with his job at Booz Hamilton. He took those files in violation of his security clearance. Snowden also has been lying his ass off about how he obtained the documents. Much of Snowden documents were about US espionage capabilities and encryption breaking skills in other countries.

If one is a Russian Spy, it is better PR to make them a civil libertarian than as a controlled Russian Agent. Snowden isn't coming back. he defected. He knows this. Ben Wizner has been his attorney since Snowden defected from the US. It is a lot better PR for Snowden and the Russian Intelligence Services to portray Snowden as a whistleblower, when he now lives in a FSB gated community outside of Russia..

Edward Snowden isn't coming back. This is all a ploy. Snowden stole 1.8 million document/files from the NSA. He isn't going to get the Espionage Act indictments rescinded. Snowden was a spy for the Russians, and he has defected to Russia. These are just media ploys..
Sep 11 ferret commented on The Election Is Tightening—Don't Waste Your Vote.
@127 "Therefore, as it stands, the only effect my vote will have on the election will be to provide support to the Green Party, which will help build an independent political movement on a local level for 2018,"

It will build party that supports those on the fringe. It isn't going to build a serous alternative party, because what attract people to it are those who believe vaccinations are part of a corporate conspiracy, those who believe 9/11 was an inside job, and we need to stock up on tinfoil hats.

If you want a serious alternative party, you need to find a way to put your ideas and dreams into action. It is not just saying what is right but how to persuade others it can benefit them as well.

The Green Party is just a vanity party, it is platform for Dr. Jill Stein to spout whatever is her head. Much like the Green Party of 2000 was a vanity party for Ralph Nader and his vanity candidacy..
Sep 7 ferret commented on EOD: Would You Move to Humptulips? What About Bacon? We Could Move to Bacon.
Oh come on! Omak! is not on the list, the greatest town name in Washington State.

Dike Access Road is not named either, (in Southern Washington off I-5 near Kalama)

@8 any state can be in play, but the only reason the main Presidential Candidates will come to Washington State is to raise money for ads in the battleground states..

However, vote, it is important, not just for President but for all the other political offices on the ballots besides initiatives..

@1 "I'm going to vote my conscience this election and give my vote to the candidates that best suit my values."

Well, if you want Robert Borks and Anthony Scalias on the Supreme Court, besides an Administration that will send $14 billion in cash to another country from the Federal Reserve Bank in New York in a panic move, by all means vote your conscience..

541 votes was the difference between having a President in 2000 who wouldn't start the Iraq War, put bozos on the Supreme Court, and actually try to address Climate Change/AGW.

You don't have to vote with your gun to your head, but you have to use critical thinking to vote for the best candidate to have a chance in winning, plus a winning coalition to control at least one wing of Congress..

Sep 6 ferret commented on Phyllis Schlafly.
As much as I should just write RIP and say a Kaddish to the Dead, I do hope she has a long time out in Purgatory and perhaps Limbo, besides she has to watch her gay/Homocon son taking on the entire USC Football team in an orgy, like Clara Bow.
