I'm a straight guy who supports LGBTQ rights, especially considering as I have family and… more »

in the past hour venomlash commented on Hillary Clinton Announces Running Mate.
@152: You can be a delusional dickweasel all you want. I'll just be here alternately slugging down coffee and booze, as I am wont to.
in the past hour venomlash commented on Bernie Sanders: "Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States!".
@1: Yes, yes, we get it, you're the cuntiest of the cultiest. Let us know if you want us to send you some deprogrammers or whatever.
(Also, big talk about leading people over a cliff from the guy who wants to give Donald Trump the nuclear codes.)
6:46 PM venomlash commented on How Green Is Her Bullshit: An Uncharacteristically Brief Response to the Green Party Spokesperson's Dishonest Response to My Podcast Rant.
@129: To use about the highest estimate possible, American drone strikes kill maybe 100, maybe 200 civilians a year. (The actual death toll is almost certainly lower.) Measles alone kills over 100,000 people per year, and it's entirely preventable through vaccination. The ONLY reason we don't have loads of deaths from it here in the USA is because we force vaccination on our kids.
You are disconnected from reality.
6:40 PM venomlash commented on Revolution Now Eating Its Own: Bernie Supporters Boo Bernie Sanders.
@67: I won't believe you until you tell me the truth about the chemtrails.
1:10 PM venomlash commented on Hillary Clinton Announces Running Mate.
@147: I'll see you eat crow in November.
1:08 PM venomlash commented on Nate Silver Predicts If the Election Were Held Today, Donald Trump Would Win 57 Percent to 42 Percent.
@4: Fuck me sideways, it doesn't take you half long to fix a headline, does it? One hour later and it's still wrong.
12:09 PM venomlash commented on Obama May Re-Militarize Police.
@6: This. There's a reason that a lot of PDs call them "less lethal" instead of "non lethal". It's important for officers to know that those can still mess people up pretty bad (even Tasers cause occasional deaths) even if they're not as lethal as a bullet.
12:06 PM venomlash commented on The Green Party Responds to Dan Savage, Says He's "Dead Wrong".
@98: You don't get to lie, make wild accusations, and then go "oops, my bad, it was a mistake" when someone calls you on it. You're dealing with the adults now. If you can't stick to the facts, go back to the kids' table.
Like I said before: basic factual accuracy.

@99: It's not a question of "if" loss-reduction technology is available; the PBS article you linked in #77 confirms that it is, and that it is even economical. Sure, it represents an initial outlay, but it does pay for itself through massive reductions in upstream losses. All it will take is regulation mandating its use to push the industry past the usual inertia.
Your claims of "utterly destroyed environment" are completely fabricated. I'm saying we should exploit natural gas to reduce the amount of coal used; do you have any idea what coal mining does to an ecosystem? Natural gas extraction is about as benign as fossil fuels get, as far as ecological impact goes.

@100: You can't have it both ways. You're complaining that the Permian and Haynesville fields are atypical, but you're demanding that I treat the Eagle Ford and Bakken fields as representative of the entire USA despite how far they diverge from usual industry practices.

@101: The petroleum industry as a whole is hurting because of worldwide overproduction. You don't get to hang that one on fracking.

11:50 AM venomlash commented on Required Reading: Republican Intellectual (Cough, Cough) Predicts Death of GOP.
@6: I'd be more excited about Democratic dominance, but I've quickly learned in the past two years just how prevalent anti-intellectualism and other pernicious forms of stupidity are on the left. Like #1 said.
