commented on The Past Year in Mass Shootings in the United States: A Timeline
Way to go Unpaid Intern, you've taken two things I've been crying over today and just made me angry.
It infuriates me that [Chelsea Kellogg] values the lives of Chinese children LESS because they "get to live" with fractured skulls, scarred faces and other deformities caused by this mentally unstable man that was still able to attack 22 children before anyone could stop him.. with only a KNIFE. He didn't need a gun to destroy the lives of twenty two families.
He stole a knife to carve up twenty two children so they will look in the mirror or touch the gaping hole in the back of their heads and always remember him. And what we don't know is the extent of the damage the more seriously injured (there were 3 that had to be transferred to a bigger hospital) suffered.
But thanks for putting it in *bold* just to show how different it is that they lived and how that means it's not a big deal-good to know we Americans have that to look forward to, because surviving those attacks makes it so much better. Have you ever been stabbed? Slashed? Multiple times? Watched it happen? If not, then STFU.
The shootings are a tragedy, today is a tragedy- a horrible awful day that makes my eyes swell up with tears, and my heart goes out to all the families involved. But yesterday was a tragedy too. The loss of life is terrible, but so is the destruction of it. Yes we should be grateful those children in China will have a chance hopefully to work through this and build back confidence in themselves and live a decent life. But it doesn't make what they went through any less awful. And shame on you for thinking that they don't matter.

commented on Why Inslee Won
I never saw the side by side. I think looking at it now that people with families would vote for McKenna because that's what the add shows- compassion and education, technology and comunity/outdoorsy stuff and being on the left side of the screen and less flashy it's easier to look at.
Inslee's is very statement orientated and construction based. But I know what Inslee has done, because he was my Representative for over a year and I admired him, have corresponded with him and was proud of his voting record while he was my Rep. So for me it was all about name recognition and track record. I knew I could trust him to listen to the people.
