Apr 23 MajordomoPicard commented on The Man Who "Broke the Music Business" Only Served Three Months in Prison.
So, music industry "insider" running a coordinated scheme to release music early (aka an actual pirate) is given three months in prison. Whereas fans who used peer-to-peer software to download tunes for personal enjoyment have been sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars, some of whom almost certainly were bankrupted by the actions of the RIAA. Got it.

@11 Godwin called, and he wants his law back.

@1, but if he did that, how would everyone know how cool he is?

Welcome to Slog!

I know it's fun to hop on the old "East is Paying for the West" roller coaster, but do you care to explain? Because it's actually the other way around. http://www.seattlepi.com/local/article/K…

"Go find out for yourself and let me know."

Investigative journalism at its finest.

"Silence-Heart-Nest" sounds more like something Koko the Gorilla would sign before going to bed.

@27 so after 594 passes, you will be leading the charge to file an initiative to correct these problems in the law? Or writing your representatives weekly to advocate for the rights of these people? Or donating money to campaigns pushing for said changes, right?

@57 so "ugly" women can be treated as honest-to-gosh actual people, but fiiiine ladies need to sit down, shut the fuck up, and take it because Daddy says so?

There is a difference between the intent of an action and how that action is perceived. Your inability to understand this indicates ignorance, lack of empathy, or stubbornness. Given the caliber of your other posts here, I'm leaning toward the first explanation.

And it takes a real piece of work to suggest that jeans and a t-shirt are "revealing", @42.

Jul 31, 2014 MajordomoPicard commented on Guest Editorial: Why Voting for a Seattle Metropolitan Parks District Means Losing Citizen Oversight.
This is such a silly argument. "Don't allow elected officials to make decisions!" That's the way a democracy works. It's really just window dressing for the real issue, which is that those elected representatives would be able to raise taxes to pay for shit. They're accountable in an election. Duh. Like the Founding Fathers intended and all that.

Then there's the straight up LIE from the Against campaign's mailer that "your property taxes would increase by 20%!" I'm sick of people who want shit (they SAY they're for the parks...) but don't want to pay for it. Unless they're lying about being for the parks, too. Which they probably are.
