Jean Godden is now 83 years old. Yes, it's starting to matter and "no", this isn't ageism it is realism. After 3 terms and holding the office since 2003, I think it's time for a different voice to represent us. With the shake-up of the city council positions, now is a great time.

I swear, TheStranger bitches about Ayn Rand every month. The woman has been dead for 30 years and her last book was almost 60 years ago. Start burning her books or get over it. She's not a factor. Her ideas are not new. Move on.
Jan 26, 2015 BoulderDrop commented on Senate Republicans Float Bill to Kill Bertha.
I'm sad that Democrats can't admit this project is a failure. I trust Inslee, he's a good man and someone that's true to his word. Bertha is not the current administration's project, but rather one that was passed by Gregoire and the State Legislature without approval by the voting public (which turned it down twice). It's been said that we fiscally/legally don't have the ability to cancel the project. I don't know if this is true or if it's really possible to kill Bertha, but I think everyone has to admit to failure, regardless of their political party... and boy, is Bertha a failure.
Jan 15, 2015 BoulderDrop commented on Morgan Beach, Newest 3rd District Challenger, Says Sawant Is Too Focused on "a Socialist Revolution".
I would like to hear more about the specific gender inequalities she's referring to... the Equal Pay Act of 1963 already made it illegal to pay women less for the same job, this was followed up with Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009. I'm all for making this a cornerstone of her campaign , much like Patty Murray has done. But what specifically is she referring to?

Fuck the whining about paying a 10% more for booze. At least we can buy on Sundays, we can buy it after 7pm and we have increased access. No more nanny state saying Sunday is God's day.
Dec 5, 2014 BoulderDrop commented on New Ayn Rand Novel to Screw Up the Lives of a Whole New Generation of White College Kids.
She's been dead for 32 years and Atlas Shrugged was written 57 years ago (1957).

I think we're all pretty tired of complaining about Ayn Rand books. Deal with it and move on.

I'm sorry that you think books destroy lives. Douche.

RE: "Fucking Hipsters?"... embodiment of postmodernism as a spent force, revealing what happens when pastiche and irony exhaust themselves as aesthetics
Oct 20, 2014 BoulderDrop commented on More Than 1,400 People Sign Petition Telling Local TV Stations Not to Release SPU Shooting Video.
Please don't treat us like children. We don't need your protection and we don't need you tell us "information" will lead to "bad things". Our society is full of violence in just our entertainment. To use the excuse that providing knowledge and specifics to the public will yield copycats and has no value is ridiculous.

Top of the Hill Down... I would have love to do this drunk about 10 years ago. I'm sure others will pick up my slack.
