Wow, no stock quote or passage from some Marxist luminary's book to cite as intelligence by proxy? You actually decided to just anthropomorphize a human construct (the animal kingdom, of which humans are a part) and attribute your conclusions to it instead. How much more pretentious and intellectually lazy can you get and still remain on staff, do you suppose?

commented on No One Gave a Damn When Bush Used the IRS to You Know What
I would actually prefer that the IRS investigate groups and churches like this more often than they do. This practice shouldn't be the basis of a scandal, it should be the norm. After all, churches are not supposed to be endorsing a candidate unless they're ready to lose their tax-exempt status
for doing so.
@10: Neither is mine. So why don't you make good on that promise
from back in January and fuck off already?
commented on New Gun Enthusiast...
I love how many comments in this thread are claiming it was the result of a faulty (assault!) weapon, glossing over the fact that everyone involved had been drinking previous to the event, to the point that the husband doesn't even remember if he touched it before it went off.
commented on It's Spring! Who's Ready for Street Harassment?
Jeez, it's hard to read through the comments thread here. For a lot of different reasons.
I wish I could empathize, but given my sex and my size, as well as the relative tameness in the few stories that I could offer as similar experience, I really doubt it's truly possible. But some of us do intervene in situations like yours when confronted by them, and do what we can to keep them from occurring in the first place. Sadly, the people who behave this sort of way apparently do it when they know they're likely to get away with it, so I can imagine how little that must be worth.
