Feb 8 cooljames commented on Guest Editorial: Washington Sex-Selective Abortion Ban Will Fuel False Stereotypes Against Asian-American Women.
Why the fuck does it take like 6 paragraphs to just soft-pedal the impact this would have to reproductive rights? This leaves women wide open to any level of hearsay-based identification with gender preference, and doesn't even represent how awful post-procedure punishment would be carried out. Fuck this person, she sucks at this.

Man, there's been nothing like this pitched in the NW for a decade or more. Focusing on Asian-shaming is a ruse. This is some weird petition based on an agenda that has no seat at the table. Women choose to be pregnant, there's no backing down from that. Backing down, in fact, undermines the rest of the legality of reproductive rights in WA.

Shame on the proponents, of course, but fuck this clown for having a stomach for the debate. Immediate thumbs-down, an editorial of this length invites debate which invites immorally motivated participants. What a shit head.

This is a money saver for SPOG. Nothing happens to vermin cops regardless, but SPOG needs to fund lawyers for the pantomime process that keeps them on the job despite their willful ignorance to their job or default adult moral standards.

We are all prisoners of SPOG.
Feb 4, 2015 cooljames commented on Officer Cynthia Whitlatch's Conduct Shows SPD Needs Systemic Reform.
Seems like a pretty basic negotiation: SPOG concedes to new standards or no one gets raises. Keep that policy until standards are adopted. The standards will put people on unpaid leave during due process and give SPOG the opportunity to pay cops and be reimbursed if a jury trial renders them innocent.

We are all prisoners of SPOG.

Don't be impressed with the sleek design. I bought this for myself for Xmas and it's broken, and the company won't help.

The heating element is the big deal. It has a motion detector that is pretty cool, especially considering you're probably smoking pot. Set it down and it shifts into a sleep mode for a couple minutes, then totally turns itself off. It's rechargeable, too, which is pretty cool.

It seems, though, that the company spent their time on the artificial intelligence but forgot to spend any time on the actual smoking experience. First off, it's awful hard to get air through this thing. Any desktop vaporizer is so very easy to draw from. I'm huge and have non-smoker lungs, and I have to go to where I'm gasping for air because this feels like you're sucking through a clogged straw.

Worst, the on/off switch is actually built into the mouthpiece, which is immediately connected to the heat source. It's insult to injury. You have to suck like a maniac to get anything out of it, and the mouthpiece heats up as it's turned on. Also, there's a chronic (no pun) problem with this design where the mouthpiece 'on' switch fails, and their fix is to ship you some kind of lubricant that you need to periodically use.

I really regret my purchase. I have a $75 desktop vaporizer that I bought off eBay and it runs circles around this overpriced broken clogged straw. Their customer service is weak, too. They have posted hours for their chat reps but it's totally hit or miss.
