May 16 venomlash commented on Washington Post: President Trump Gave "Highly Classified" Intelligence to Russian Officials.
@26: You give him too much credit as a businessman. He was only able to get the kinds of financing he did because he was Fred Trump's son, and when American banks realized how far the apple had fallen from the tree (in terms of reliability and general competence) they stopped lending to him, forcing him to get loans mostly from Russian banks.
Apr 30 venomlash commented on Trump Executive Order Could Re-Open Arctic, Atlantic, California Waters for Offshore Drilling.
@3: This. Offshore drilling is super expensive.
@4: But this is also correct.

@12: "this law was awful and I personally know people who lost jobs over it"
I just bet you do, cubbie.

Nice to see you back here. Say, did you ever move to Texas like you were threatening to a few years ago? Come on down, the weather's fine!
Apr 24 venomlash commented on The Morning News: Cliff Mass Says GOP Not Anti-Science, Seattle is the 9th-Most Expensive City in the World.
@19: Cliff, I'm usually on your side when it comes to Mudede's feud with you, but I think your chosen metric (of raw funding totals) is facile and fails to accurately model political attitudes towards science. American conservatives may fund (some types of) research, but they also show a troubling willingness to meddle with research for ideological reasons. You need look no further than the campaign of persecution waged against climate scientists, the effective ban on research into the causes and underpinnings of gun violence by the CDC, the suppression of findings related to tobacco, and the arbitrary restrictions imposed on the use of embryonic stem cells.
The Republican Party actively attempts to impose its ideology on science; Democrats tend to let the experts work towards their own conclusions.

There was also that time she said the "King Louie" character (from the 1967 animated Jungle Book) was a racist caricature, but okay.
Apr 10 venomlash commented on Gorsuch Confirmed.
@24: Her approval rating was low because fringe idiots like you swallowed the Russian/GOP propaganda. Her approval rating as SoS was ~65% when she left that job...and then the VRWC went into high gear when she began running for office again.
Apr 6 venomlash commented on We Asked Seattle Politicians to Respond to Activist Omari Tahir-Garrett's Anti-Semitic and Anti-Asian Remarks.
Black activists demand that we just excuse explicit racism and anti-Semitism among their ranks because black people have had it worse? Wish I could be surprised.
