@21: Exactly.

@22: You lost the argument as soon as you cited John Lott. He's used faulty methodology, massaged data, referenced a key study which mysteriously seems to not exist anywhere (Lott claims that all copies were lost in a computer crash), posed as a former student of his in order to defend his ideas online, and failed to account for large-scale patterns in crime rates attributable to factors unrelated to guns. He's a fraud, honestly; his supporters are not fellow economists and statisticians, but rather the uneducated masses looking for confirmation of their opinions about guns.

He caricatured the mentally ill in a way I'm uncomfortable with, but otherwise he was pretty well on the mark.

@8: "You mean like attacking in the grossest and most vulgsr terms [sic] the family name of a politician whose views you dislike?"
This from the guy who not only insists on talking about "little Danny Boy the Savage" (using his family name as a slur), but also referring to him (and other liberals and queers) with terms like "perverts" "deviants" "loonies" "barbarians" "fags and dykes" "disgusting traitor" "hatred for honorable men" "petulant child" "decay" "simpering morons" "narcissistic little boy" "subhuman thing" "[d]eranged perverted deviant" "seriously mentallly [sic] ill" "trash" "filthy bit of human debris" "repulsive bit of scum" "filthy pervert" "spoiled junior high school girl" and "freak".
Those are all words that you not only use to describe people you don't like, but insist are objective statements of fact whenever someone calls you out on your baseless invective. And you say this not only about people who are no longer in office, but who have never held or even run for elective office! It all comes down to the same old double standard of "it's okay when Seattleblues does it", just like your selective support for the rule of law (only when it's laws you like).

(Oh and Rick Santorum is running for President this year, just like he did 4 years ago. He's fair political game, and the infamous "man-on-dog" comment should be brought up as an argument against him. It would be an extremely boring election cycle if candidates not currently holding office were off limits.)

@29: "big Corellian ships" refers to the Imperial-class Star Destroyers. Which is funny because the main manufacturer was actually based on Kuat...

@4: Is it your pet project or something to be willfully idiotic regarding what does or doesn't constitute a weapon, deadly or otherwise, Neale? Because if so, good fucking job.
11:06 PM yesterday venomlash commented on There Was "a Large Sewage Spill" in Lake Washington This Morning.
Use some scientific notation, guys. Otherwise, the sheer volume of 7.29 E 27 gallons can be hard to really comprehend, and the spill might seem like more of a drop in a bucket than it is.
This has been a friendly message from your local nerds.

@62: "Seems to me you're just not paying attention. See, same-sex marriage won the day here in this state by popular vote. Whether or not you agree, most Americans--who probably do accept as worthwhile many values you hold dear, like the primacy of the family unit, basic civility, community, etc.--don't see those values as being threatened by or essentially opposed to individuals building households through committed relationships with those with whom they can and do share romantic and erotic bonds."
Shhh, he's talking about Real Americans, which are imaginary. He once told me that rural Americans are the only true Americans, despite the fact that city-dwellers make up upwards of 80% of the nation. Remember always that Seattleblues lives in a world of make-believe where every Real American agrees with him and his opinions are facts.
