AlaskanbutnotSeanParnell is relieved, yet slightly melancholy not to have been anywhere where the teargas was flowing...yet hasn't given up on either global or personal revolution. Film at eleven.

Jesus, people! You're attacking an abused,traumatized woman over not replacing a tote bag? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ALL OF YOU? It's just a fucking bag...and she's almost certainly telling the truth about not being able to replace it. If she's escaped from an abuser, she may well be in another city and not feel safe in doing anything that could give anybody here a clue as to where she now is. She may also be broke. Why are you so much more concerned about a trivial piece of property than you are about a woman who has good reason to fear for her life?

Souls. Try Growing Them.

Is Edgerton's character the guy who looks like "Dirty Harry" in that still?

I'm pretty sure the "in crowd/out crowd" thing(which is what this "I, A" is really about, when you get down to it) happens everywhere. It shouldn't, but it does. All of us, wherever we live, need to stop doing this to people who've just come in.

In Seattle(as in the rest of what us white settlers call "North America")it's only the original inhabitants, the folks who've been here for tens of thousands of years, who have any right to have issues with "outsiders"(and yet, weirdly, a lot of them don't, from what I've seen. They're chill with new folks even though they had the whole fucking continent stolen from them. Go figure).

Good luck, David. Oh, and Dan and Tim, please, please PLEASE don't go with "Ann Romano" as a permanent replacement. What she does works in the Mercury, but not here.

So THAT's why "New Jersey Man" never became a major hero in the Marvel universe. Who knew?

Uh...did you have one of your interns try the "strawberries" yet? If so, is she still alive?

If a candidate gets more than 50% in the primary, does she still have to face the runner-up in November?
Aug 5 AlaskanbutnotSeanParnell commented on The First Primary Under Our New Districts System Happened Last Night. Here’s One Thing the Results Tell Us..
Why have they been so slow releasing more results? The UK just had a general election with 30 million or so hand-counted ballots, involving 650 parliamentary constituencies, and they had 97% of those votes tabulated in a single night. Why has it taken almost two days to count maybe 150,000 ballots in seven districts in one relatively compact city?

"We now have laws against bestiality in Washington State. We now have a black president".

And those two things are in some way connected...?

(Then again, maybe there IS cause-and-effect there).

Why don't they just train the cops to treat Black people, Latino people, and Native Americans exactly the way they treat white suburbanites?

And that it's not a threat to their safety just because a person of color asks why the cop is hassling them?

What part of "it doesn't make cops one bit safer to be paranoid bigots than to treat everybody with equal respect" do the police not understand?

And what right to the cops have to expect PoC to respect them, cooperate with them or even bother trying to obey the laws when they always treat PoC worse than white folks?

It's Vietnam in the hood...the cops would rather keep fighting an unwinnable war forever than do the sane, decent thing and admit the war is wrong.

How many more Sandras? How many more Trayvons? How many more Tamirs?
How long, o Lord? How Long?
