Jul 20 TechBear commented on This Is What the Log Cabin Party Looked Like After Donald Trump Became the Republican Presidential Nominee Last Night.
I find that the word "quisling" does not get used as much as it should.
Jul 19 TechBear commented on Will You Stop Being Mean to Log Cabin Republicans? (Spoiler: No, I Will Not.).
The Republican Party has become an anti-LGBT hate group. Quislings who endorse their agenda should be treated like quislings. Remember what happened to Nazi collaborators in France?
Jul 18 TechBear commented on You Know the Rules and So Do I: The Best Tweets From the Melania Trump-Michelle Obama Plagiarism Scandal.

It is "open carry" only if the person with the gun is white. If they are black, then it is "Oh, shit, they have a gun!"
Jul 8 TechBear commented on Mayor on Police Union and Reform: "It's a Struggle.".
Keep in mind, this is the same group that fought tooth and nail against DoJ recommendations to end the culture of abuse and intimidation that the FBI found in an investigation a few years ago. This is the same group that tried to sue the federal government, claiming that mandated improvements violated the civil rights of of the cops.

Sure, "a few bad apples." But a few bad apples have turned the whole SPD into a rotting, corrupt cesspool. If the alleged good apples cannot keep their comrades in check, then the good apples are just bad apples who refuse to admit what they are.
Jun 1 TechBear commented on The Washington State Republican Party's 2016 Platform Has Drifted Farther Right (And Says Light Rail Is a Bad Idea).
The Overton window has been steadily moving to the authoritarian right since the 80s: on a great many issues, the Democratic Party is now is where the Reagan Republicans once stood.
Jun 1 TechBear commented on City Council Likely to Ban Rent Increases at Substandard Apartment Buildings.
It is a given that the Builders' Association will challenge this on the grounds of the state law that forbids rent control. How likely is it that the city law will withstand that challenge?
May 25 TechBear commented on Church Funding Anti-Trans Attack Tells Evangelicals "It Ain't Over".
Bigots once again using religion to justify their hate.
