@6. Seriously shut the fuck up. You are the one who decided to give away a gift to your child. You are the idiot decided to posted on a public group for any stranger to see. Just because it happened to be the stranger they got you busted doesn't mean they wouldn't have come back to you. Don't blame other people and get the fuck over yourself. If you were so worried about having precious photo used by other people don't post it in a public forum
Mar 29 JDballard commented on Washington Superdelegates Still Endorsing Clinton, Spurning Pro-Sanders Majority of State Voters.
Would it be fair to say some of these superdelegates would want to stay in Hillary's good graces if she does go on to get the nomination? How much of their decision is based off what they personally want, or what their district wants? Or what about fear of spurning the future president? Honest question here.

@12, how do you know 20 thousand "kiddos" at that concert last night (likely after all polls closed) didn't vote. Or that they were on ecstasy? or getting laid in the parking lot, and without protection? You have a vivid imagination.

so you want to lean on the retailers? You get a huge flash mob to spread out to all the stores and the faux customers grabs armfuls of merchandise, then drop it off politely at the register and say you can't shop there until something changes. Every manager at every store talking about this issue and complaining to Westlake Center would pretty much force their hand. might be stoned, so ignore if this sounds like a crap idea. kthx

^^^ angry at 4 year old video and forever boycotting SMC because of it. Calling Frank and Kevin stupid.

THIS is great negotation and the deaf community will forever benefit from your eloquence.

I had been toying with learning ASL but this whole thing is a turnoff, why does every single open letter or testimonial come off as so snarky, and what is with the self promotion of Tata? Put down the pitchforks and quit making fools of yourselves. I think I'll work on learning more Spanish and leave ASL for the angry people.

Dan I agree completely.

I did 3 phone banks and was blown away by how many straight allies took their time to make these calls. And they were able to engage in great conversations and get more persuasions than some of us. I got a little choked up at times listening to them talk about why it was important to them, how it is fair and usually a personal story about a friend, coworker or relative that is LGBT and how much it would mean.

Huge huge thank you to our straight allies. They gave time, money and likely converted many of their family and friends into a yes vote.

Party? Sure. sincere thank you? Daily.
