If you don't already know about a few cups of french press and a nice bowl on a sunday morning, you have been doing it all wrong.
Sep 3 A Magnolia Heron commented on Savage Love.
LW1: While your wife's anger at past porn viewing is utterly ridiculous to say the least, I think the bigger issue is the way she treats you in public situations. If she is truly yelling at you when she perceives you looking at other women (or on television, seriously!) you are in a kind of abusive relationship. Continual yelling like that for specific, unreasonable perceptions IS emotional abuse. I was in a relationship where this exact scenario played out (we weren't married, but together for 4 years) and I only realized I was being abused emotionally when I finally got out of the relationship. In the relationship, I began to question myself, my integrity, etc. to the point of seeking out therapy to unravel all this shit I was beginning to perceive as something wrong with me when, in reality, my gf was actually being abusive relative to issues surrounding sexuality and her own body image that she needed to work out. So, DTMFA unless you want to keep dealing with this shit.

@1:

What do you suppose is a more likely outcome: A, that we have much stricter rules on guns and who can obtain them, or, B, that we somehow find a way to get to fix the infinite number of causes that amalgamate to produce these acts?

Seriously #2? You are complaining about that picture. Wow. What has the world come to when we start complaining about a little bottom-boob and a hot dude with his shirt off. Jesus christ.
Sep 17, 2012 A Magnolia Heron commented on Today the State Auditor Found Another $1.3 Million Mismanaged by Seattle Public Schools—Paging School Board President Michael DeBell!.
Lew,

The school officials have friends who are contractors. They tell those friends they should put in a crazy bid because they will push it through. The job only costs a tenth of what they charge, the excess is then split between the school officials who approved the bid and the contractor. It's not like the school district is being taken advantage of here. Officials in the school district are stealing money via a third party.

Dude, you paid it late. Waiting two weeks is too long. The postal service is not responsible for making sure it gets there when it should, you are responsible for getting it to the postal service with enough time for them to get it there. And, dont go arguing there is something wrong with the postal service because everyone fucking knows there is something wrong with the postal service. If you wanted that shit there on time you would use FedEx or UPS expedited. \
Apr 3, 2012 A Magnolia Heron commented on Mike Daisey and Kony2012 Cut from the Same Cloth?.
It seems to me the recent developments with FoxConn and Apple would be a good counter-argument. As much as I dislike Mike Daisey and think he is a lying sack of shit, who knows if this would have happened without him: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/30/techno….

I suppose this probably would have happened anyway, but would not have been so prevalent in our media.
Feb 28, 2012 A Magnolia Heron commented on Etymology of the Day: Niggardly.
@1 Or, the clerk and store patrons will continue about their business because they already know they etymology of the word. You actually made quite a racist assumption there, way to go.
Feb 28, 2012 A Magnolia Heron commented on Occupiers Overtake Mayor's Office.
Given this is actually a form of protest directed at the correct authority in the correct forum, I assert this cannot possibly be occupy.
Jan 27, 2012 A Magnolia Heron commented on Lowering the Minimum Wage for Tipped Employees: Yes or No?.
@52 With that line of reasoning, you are basically aruging that any job should pay a livable wage for someone with a kid. What about two kids? Three?
