commented on A Short, Really Depressing Documentary About the Housing Crisis in the Bay Area (and How It's Affecting Seattle)
This is all being exacerbated by the Chinese being allowed to invest in US and Canadian real estate. This is all about ghost housing being used for Chinese piggy banks, and to establish an anchor in our markets. The issue would correct itself if you mandated a citizenship requirement to purchase a home, or alternatively required double yearly taxation for any home not actively occupied, combined with an yearly investment tax of 50% of assessed value. This kind of situation shows that local governments do NOT care for their actual citizens, and instead favor the uber wealthy and foreign interests.

commented on Watch Hillary Get Heckled About Climate Change Yesterday in Dover, New Hampshire
Hillary is losing Democratic voters. Hemorrhaging them in fact at this rate. People are flocking to Bernie, and if she keeps it up she's toast. Hillary is the same status quo BS politician we've had over and over, and that is NOT playing well this election cycle. People are very dissatisfied with choice from both mainstream parties. @9 nails it. Hillary staffers have to be able to see the trendline.

commented on Saving Metro Won't Be Pretty
Maybe we should also be looking at WHY Metro is continuously underfunded? Was there not an investigative story a year or so ago that showed LOTS of metro bus drivers made more than $75,000 per year, with at least 5 making over $150,000 to drive a fucking bus? Start by looking at ALL salaries of Metro and cut them in HALF! Problem solved.

@25 Jesus fuck you are a blathering idiot!
Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 5 of the NFL rulebook discusses a simultaneous catch.
"If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control," the rule states.
Jennings gained control first. That should have ended the game.
I won't even discuss the blatant offensive PI a split second sooner that was missed. Two hands shoved into GB defender sending him sprawling. Game over right there prior to any ball possession.
