7:30 PM yesterday Xian-Qi commented on Hillary Clinton Announces Running Mate.
Voters now have the choice between crazy Republicans and sane Republicans. I bet all those concessions Bernie got into the platform will be ignored if she wins. Unfortunately, this doesn't give any progressive Democrat any reason to not vote Green.

Being Asian has little to do with this. I have dated Asians and have many Asian friends. While there is a little bit more of the jealousy aspect in Asian cultures, what you describe is completely out of proportion to anything cultural. When I've dated Asians who we're jealous that I was still friends with an ex, they got it pretty quickly when they realized they were being treated very well. There is no way what you describe can be negotiated down to a calm and comforting relationship. Even if you resolve to hate your ex and join your girlfriend and her death wish, your girlfriend will find something else to get batshit crazy about.
Jul 9 Xian-Qi commented on Dumbest Letter Ever.
Highly paid professional asks fans to do his work for him. Hey Dan, I know you don't get the anger of the Sanders movement, but you really just demonstrated how the new economy works. So-called liberals who haven't been affected by it just don't get it. Either answer the letter or don't post it.
Jun 22 Xian-Qi commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Good Priests, Shitty Bishops.
You are like a Bernie Bro shitting on the Hillary Clinton of priests because he didn't promise you 100% of the concessions you demand in one sermon. Fair enough. But at least you know how it feels to be on the other side.

@15: "Psychological addiction" is a cultural buzzword. Addiction is when the brain believes the chemical is necessary for survival -- the body begins to shut down when the substance is stopped (ie the "delerium tremens" when an alcoholic quits). No one needs medical supervision when they quit weed, no matter how psychologically dependent. It doesn't fit the medical term for addiction.

A few things you didn't pick up on, Dan.

1) She calls it a weed "addiction." Weed isn't addictive. No one goes into possibly lethal withdrawal symptoms when they stop using it. They might get bummed out, it might be a bad habit that interferes with functioning (like watching too much TV), but anyone who calls it an "addiction" is already exerting a judgement.

2) The MF in DTMFA stands for "mother fucker" and I don't see this guy as an MF. Like you said, he simply wants privacy for whatever reason. It's not great that he keeps this secret, but it's not MF "abuse" territory. Again, judgement where it should be.

3) She has to go into his work shed to find evidence? Can't she tell when her own husband is stoned? Can't she smell it on him? If he's stoned all the time and she can't tell, they must not interact much, and that might be the bigger problem.
Jun 14 Xian-Qi commented on Hillary Crushing Trump In New Poll.
And take comfort Hillary supporters who said Bernie staying in the race was harming her chances to win the GE. That didn't happen either.
Jun 7 Xian-Qi commented on Hillary Clinton Has Already Won the Democratic Nomination.
Eight years ago to this day, Barack Obama clinched the delegate count to win the nomination. Hillary Clinton refused to drop out, citing that due process had to take place. I don't recall this kind of pressure being laid on Clinton to drop out. I don't recall anyone saying Hillary was hurting Obama's chances by not dropping out. I also don't recall Dan writing political posts that implied Clinton was delusional. Why won't Hillary's supporters grant Bernie the same respect that Clinton demanded 8 years ago?
Jun 1 Xian-Qi commented on Jerry Brown Does Math, Endorses Clinton.
He's angling for VP. His endorsement isn't exactly ringing. It's suspiciously full of the same empty boilerplate coming from other progressives (ie Franken) who've jumped on her bandwagon and have suddenly become speculative running mates. She "knows how to get things done," she will "lead from day one," has a "firm grasp of the issues." she is "the only way forward." It reads like one of those confessions from a hostage who has a gun to his head. It would be fun to watch him try to re-word it in a less meaningful way. Maybe, "She can deal with having a lot on her plate." In other words, seems like the Hillary camp told him he might be vetted if he fills out the pre-written endorsement template.
