12:37 PM yesterday originalcinner commented on Betsy DeVos: We Need Guns In Schools to Protect Children From Grizzly Bears.
She couldn't know less about public schools if she'd been lost in the Vietnamese jungle for the past 50 years. I know Trump wants to pick terrible people, but are there really no terrible people who are even vaguely qualified for the posts they're standing for?
Jan 17 originalcinner commented on Inside the Debate Over Whether the Seattle Womxn's March Should Be Silent.
Some people just like telling other people what to do. If they chose teacher as a career, it could work out pretty well, but instead they chose to be power tripping asshats telling their peers what to do.
Jan 13 originalcinner commented on Every Person You Know Is STILL Sick as Washington State Faces Flu Epidemic.
I got the flu two years running in the 1990s, before flu shots were a thing, and I never want to go through that again. Mine came with hallucinations (I thought there were giant bats in my bedroom) which freaked me out more than the regular "just feeling like crap" symptoms. As soon as I learned that there were flu shots, I was all over that like a rash.

We're all going to die. Oh well, I made it to my 50s, it was a great ride. So long and thanks for all the fish.
Jan 11 originalcinner commented on Today, in More Things Donald Trump is Wrong About.
I saw a great comment on Daily Kos, responding to the question "Did you watch that press conference today?" The comment said something like, "No. I tried, but it's like bull riding. You can only do it for about eight seconds, before losing consciousness in a world of pain".
Jan 11 originalcinner commented on Where to Get a Flu Shot in Seattle.
I've talked to people I know, none of whom ever get the flu shot, and they all seem to think it's like some kind of lottery, and they'll be lucky and not get the flu. They have insurance, they could just drop by a pharmacy and get a flu shot in less than ten minutes, but the the thing they really have in spades is apathy. They just can't be bothered. I almost want them to get flu so I can say, "I told you so" :-( Herd immunity people, herd immunity. Don't do it for yourselves, do it for the immuno-compromised, the very young, the elderly, who are likely to suffer a whole lot more from the flu you give them than you will yourself. Don't be Typhoid Mary.
Jan 10 originalcinner commented on Dylann Roof Receives the Death Penalty in Charleston Massacre.
I oppose the death penalty in general due to the possibility that an innocent person could be executed, and because knee-jerk revenge is uncivilised.

However, Roof is not even close to being potentially innocent, and the world will be a better place without him.

I give up. captainseattle206 is the muddy pig that I do not need to be wrestling.

@6: so a woman who's in her third trimester and finds out her baby has a slew of incurable/unfixable/horribly painful medical issues, should continue to gestate and then give the resulting vegetable to a couple who just can't wait to adopt it? This isn't about sluts having unwanted babies, ya muttonbrain. This is about women who conceive babies they desperately want, but something goes awry (hey, thanks, God) and they need a safe, convenient termination of a non-viable fetus (who isn't a baby or a child).

@12: you're kidding/trolling, right?

"all posts should be required to have the identity of the poster (full real name) attached"?

Yeah, that's going to work really well on Dan's threads about kink and LGBTQ issues.
