commented on White House Caves on Birth Control Coverage
#10 Hits on the poker aspect well. I wouldn't be surprised if the Administration is looking at this long term. By doing this now, they can "appease" religious organizations, but someone somewhere will take this to court.
Eventually SCOTUS will have to rule on it. By that time there will no doubt be some new justices on the court. SCOTUS has already voiced its affirmative stance on healthcare. It will likely be decided in favor of the administration and the president won't have to be involved. Know where to fight your fights...

commented on The Stranger Election Control Board’s Endorsements For the November 6, 2012, General Election
Seriously you went for the scare tactic "rape your toddler's face off" argument on King County Prop 1 Fingerprint ID? Thats only one of a gajillion uses for the system - and IMHO a good one - but a irresponsible endorsement.
The Stranger didn't even discuss the possible civil rights violations of using the system. Get pulled over for something? Look brown? Maybe Illegal? Oh yeah, lets use the Fingerprint ID system. What next? On the spot DNA swabs? It's not a big leap from Fingerprints to DNA. I expect better from you Stranger.
