commented on Are Protestors Really Ruining Seattle's Christmas?
I fully support the protests against the Mike Brown & Eric Garner grand jury decisions.
What I don't support is the same old crowd of local anarchists trying to take over protests and make them all about them and their causes.
Now I feel as if joining the protest would be a bad idea for me, since I'm white. Tarred by skin color association with the anarchists & communists.
Ironic, isn't it?
commented on The Bowler Hat Is the New Fedora
I've worn fedoras since the 70s. Nice wide, snap-brim fedoras, not trilbys being called fedoras. They're perfect for the winter weather here.
Now I'm supposed to give it up because it makes me look like I'm trying to be a hipster or brogrammer? I think the lack of ironic mustache and addition of breasts pretty well rule those out.
I'll be happy when they become unfashionable & I can resume wearing mine.

I'd love it if cops behaving like this could get a (non-pro-forma) psych eval for anger management problems. Also a blood test for steroids or other abused substances. Pass both? OK, you like to talk big and could stand to be reminded of appropriate guidelines. Pass one or neither? Consequences ranging from ongoing counseling to dismissal, depending on severity.
There's really no excuse to have rage-filled time bombs out there with mil-surplus weaponry.
