Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Dan, those of us who have really listened to you throughout the years know you as someone who has uncommonly sophisticated thinking and who frames debate/advice with nuanced and contextual perspective. The style of this type of knee jerk attack on you (and on others) feels too much like right wing religion. Hugely judgmental and a rushing to call everyone a sinner. There seems to be way too much emphasis and joyful outrage on finding sinners and pinning scarlet letters on people. It didn't' matter what you said--there's a prejudgment and an agenda. Prove you aren't a sinner--float or drown. Can't win. It is so destructive and this type of tactic gets mirrored in supposedly opposite positions. But it's the same. It's like being in church with where you cannot win--instead of constructive listening, it's damn you to hell.

Careful-- there's at least one look alike site called Washington Health Plan finder (same name as the official site--URL looks official, too)--it's an insurance agency, but I know people who landed there today and thought it was the official exchange.

I like her. Just saying so in the 30 seconds I have to spare before moving on.
Mar 5, 2013 alion commented on SL Letter of the Day: Sample Sizes.
Yeah, Dan. Though I think it's great your advice to incorporate the vibrator and also that you explain that tongues can get tired--I think you blew it by not spending much language on supporting this woman against her boyfriend's protests that pretty much attempt to justify a long trend of him taking and her not getting--and of him guilt tripping her because his other girlfriends could get off. You said you were busy so maybe you just blew past it--but I expected a little more here as I think had it been a guy complaining you would have talked more about the selfish lover if he/she doesn't take more interest in solving the problem. I happen to think you advocate for women very strongly, in general--but, come on, this was a bit lame. Please let's not return to a time where guys could justify taking pleasure without reciprocation, just because it takes a woman a longer. I very much know you don't think that at all. But I know that boyfriend in reading your answer isn't going to start taking the girlfriend's dissatisfaction very seriously. And that is just a shame. He needs to be told he has to be part of solving this issue, and that this issue should be very important to him--not just to her.

Feb 19, 2013 alion commented on My Mouth has Fallen in Love with Fake Meat.
@39,41,55 People used to always throw that one out there as if it mattered, and as if vegetarians were being hypocrites by eating something that resembled meat -- "why would a vegetarian want anything that looks like meat?" (as if meat patties/hotdogs, etc, really reflects what an animal looks like, anyway) But to a vegetarian/vegan who doesn't want to eat animals, the point is not whether it looks like real meat--it's that it ISN'T MEAT. It isn't an animal raised in some factory. I don't care what it looks like, I care about where it came from,--i.e., what it really is.. Duh. I think most people have gotten past that absurdity by now--but it used to be a comment frequently heard and when I heard it I wanted to pound my head against the wall. I rarely eat fake meat--but if other people like it who don't want to eat real animals, who cares? It can look like meat--but it isn't meat. That is the more important point. Hope I made sense. It is cocktail hour.

@16 Fnarf is right. Molly Moon has a history of community and progressive activism, and has fought for, among other issues, paid sick days and health care. She a GOOD citizen. So, yeah, pick a better target.

This is genius and classy, Dan. Trust you to pull something creative and potentially productive out of the hat. It's brilliant.
Jan 12, 2012 alion commented on The Joys of Home Ownership.
I don't know0-I do hear you about repairs, but I'm forever grateful we have our house. We bought by luck at the right time and our mortgage is so much lower than rents are these days in Seattle. I'd have to be living somewhere in the outskirts instead of in a groovy older house neighborhood. The house itself is a work in progress, but I'm grateful. Many of my artist friends have been priced right out of the city.
Jan 12, 2012 alion commented on I Am Angry.
You are so right, Rep. Dickerson, and I applaud you. I wish the high earner income tax was on the ballot now. It was so disappointing that even liberals I know, back then, were sucked into voting against it-- many who now are calling to tax the rich. Damn timing timing timing. Thank you for your work.
