Feb 9 Prettybetsy commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Engaged to a Beard.
IDK, it's a lot easier to grow a beard than to hit the gym every day and watch what you eat, and Dan has no problem telling people to do that. It's easier than shaving every day. And it makes pretty much any man attractive enough to fuck.
Jan 7 Prettybetsy commented on Can Portlandia Be Funny In the Age of Trump?.
Portlandia has never interested me, not because it's too mean but because the satire is just so weak. Bikes! Feminism! Kale! They're just things. It takes a little more than just naming things to be funny. The only legit way to watch Portlandia is the way a friend of mine does, because he's homesick for Portland in the 90's.

@25 2016 has taken a lot of good people from us. For a vile person to die by his own disgusting principles does bring a little relief from this year of abominations.

I love you, Charles.

Nice circular firing squad, guys. I like @14's scenario.

@66 and the preservation of motherhood and apple pie, no doubt.

Charter schools? What?

Seattle has a blind spot for bill gates. People forget what a ruthless monopolizing shitball he was before he retired and started flinging his billions at questionable causes. If we're depending on the Bill Gateses to save the world, we're fucked.

"The 'intelligence community' "

In other words, Intelligence-Americans. It's got a ring to it.
Nov 24, 2016 Prettybetsy commented on How to Get Through Thanksgiving at Your Right-Wing Family's House.
@3 has got it right. If your family lacks the self-awareness to be embarrassed about their votes for Trump, save your Thanksgiving feast for your friends or the homeless. Save your precious time off to actually relax and go somewhere you like with people who aren't ignorant trash. Even if you do want to see them, take it from me, it's always better to visit at a lower-key time than major holidays.

Am I the only one who thinks we woke up in a new world on November 9th and none of this matters? Yes, I was a Bernie delegate to my state convention, no, I wouldn't swerve if I suddenly found Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the path of my car, yes, I voted for Hillary reluctantly in the end. That may have been the last free election we'll ever see.

The corporate, hawkish DLC's twenty-year run is over. Bernie has the highest profile in the Democratic party right now as we try to rebuild. All this score-settling makes us look ridiculous and wastes the energy we need to keep Trump from making America hate again.
