@1: Raindrop has to wait and see which member of the clown car lasts until the end before he can start astroturfing in earnest.
Apr 14 Theodore Gorath commented on The Morning News: Seattle Company Offers $34 Minimum Wage, Worker Falls Asleep in Plane's Cargo Hold, and Beef Day 2015!.
@2: Why does this guy's decision to pay his employees more make you so mad?
Apr 13 Theodore Gorath commented on The Morning News: Shell Oil's ETA in Seattle, Hillary's Hate Crime Against Graphic Designers, and Rubio's Jumped In.
@31: Well, it was deleted, so I can not exactly just "repost" it, but if memory serves you stated that you would have liked to be the one to pull the trigger, and the topic was unarmed black people being gunned down. If someone is better than me at digging up cached pages and stuff, it may be able to be found. But calling me a "fag" is not going to win you any points either. It just makes you look deranged and angry.

Just so everyone knows, "Teckel" here had a comment pulled in Mudede's "Safari" post today because he stated he personally wanted to kill black people (if they had committed a crime). Just so you know the type of person you are arguing with.
Apr 11 Theodore Gorath commented on Why Did 100 People Camp for 24 Hours in a Chick-fil-A Parking Lot in Bellevue?.
@28: That is my point: it is a protest of convenience. it is easy to forgo a sandwich, but harder to forgo an iPhone, so it is perfectly ok to accept slavery if it gets you things you really want. Well, as long as the slaves are just some Chinese people anyway. If they were white slaves Apple was exploiting, something tells me Apple would have a much bigger problem.

If Apple was donating tiny amounts of money to an anti-gay group, instead of using thousands of slaves, would you protest Apple too? Or are Apple products good enough to make you forget that? Honest question.

@24: I think part of why people find the opposition to Chik-Fil-A a bit ridiculous becasue while they are protesting a business for donating a (relatively) tiny amount of money to a distasteful group, they are doing so on phones and devices made by people who are more or less slaves, but since the slaves are not of the same tribe and people really like iPhones, no one cares. It is pretty hypocritical, really.

Apple is vastly more evil than Chik-Fil-A can ever hope to be, but hey, people like iPhones, right? So no worries!

My take anyway.
Apr 10 Theodore Gorath commented on Some Serious Manspreading on a Metro Bus.
Honestly, the way most men sit naturally is basically what is considered "manspreading." It is quite uncomfortable as a man to sit with your legs together for much time at all.

There are certainly guys who take up more space than they need comfortably, just like there are people who use up too much space for their bags/backpacks, but most pictures I see of "manspreading" are guys sitting how men sit naturally and comfortably.

@14: The other writers left because The Stranger was paying them peanuts and they actually had opportunities elsewhere. Who else but the The Stranger is going to pay Mudede for what he writes? Mudede is not going anywhere.
