commented on Service Charge for What?
You're right, it probably won't. What WILL change is that servers will no longer have to kow-tow to asswipes who insist on being treated like they're the only ones sitting in a full-up restaurant, or else they'll express their displeasure by not tipping, just because they can.

commented on Kshama Sawant—"She Who Shall Not Be Named"—Argues Against New Campaign Ethics Rule
The time and distance provisions seem particularly problematic. For example, what if signature gatherers are on private property with the permission of the owner, but still within the 300 foot radius? Isn't that in direct contradiction to their First Amendment rights? It would seem far easier to simply say that no campaign-related activities shall occur on city property, and leave it at that.

Feh, you and your Gilded Age froo-farrah! I'll take a nice, dry cave and a roaring fire for cooking my spear-killed game and for drying my rain-besotted animal pelt garments over your effete, new-fangled luxuries any day!

Liberals DO embrace diversity and differing opinions - it's just that those opinions happen to differ from your obviously conservative leanings, which apparently made you butt-hurt enough to feel compelled to comment for the very first time. But that's okay, because we're pretty tolerant here on the ole' SLOG, and even someone such as yourself is welcome to express your opinion. After all, if troglodytes like SB and Sgt. Doom can find a place here, certainly we can make room for one more.
commented on Dan Savage's ABC Sitcom Is a GO: Watch the Trailer!
So, who exactly is Yahweh punishing this time for allowing teh homos to have another television show? I always get confused, because whenever Xtians claim their god will punish someone for these things, more often than not it's other Xtians who seem to take the brunt.
