Sep 3, 2016 kk in seattle commented on Here Are 6 Reasons Why Trigger Warnings Aren't Bullshit..
My takeaway from this is that our campuses are rife with professors who teach their classes "without telling anybody that you're going to spring rape or bloody battles or torture on your students. Because you are a dick who gets off on the shock effect." Also, that these professors tell women who have just been raped to "shut the fuck up about it, take care of yourself and don't expect anyone else to give a shit."

If this is the problem, I'm not sure that trigger warnings for students who can't google the syllabus is the solution.

Bertha is a disaster but a Seattle subway will be completely different.
Jul 21, 2016 kk in seattle commented on Seattle Police Union Votes Down City's Contract Offer.
The first issue on the table ought to be a requirement that the police live in the city. We pay their salaries. We don't need an occupying force from Arlington, Monroe, Maple Valley and Puyallup treating us as animals. If we need to provide rental assistance or a second-mortgage program as part of the compensation, better yet.

If a black preacher says God will damn America then that justifies having a white supremacist president. If a white preacher says God will damn America then that justifies saying Amen!
Jun 21, 2016 kk in seattle commented on Let's Talk About that Seattle Times Editorial Claiming Sound Transit Should "Slow Down" on New Light Rail.
So bizarre to argue that 2036 is "forever." It's only 20 years. Sound Transit itself is only 20 years. We've only been at this mass rapid transit thing for 20 years and already we're supposed to quit? We've got a fair amount done in 20 years, why would we quit now?
Jun 21, 2016 kk in seattle commented on Eight Days After Orlando Shooting, Senate Rejects Gun Restrictions.
What @23 said. Just because we unconstitutionally deprive people of their right to travel doesn't mean we should pile on more unconstitutional deprivations without due process. Yes, we should ban assault weapons (again). No, we should not in any manner defend--let alone exacerbate--the no-fly list until it comports with due process.
Jun 16, 2016 kk in seattle commented on Did We Learn Anything From Seeing Footage of the SPU Shooting?.
We learned that the government will turn over private intellectual property (the University owns the video) to the media without compensation in violation of the federal and state constitutions, and that the media will steal the confiscated property and put it on their own websites to profit from its content, all in violation of federal copyright law. And that the media will spend a fortune on lawyers to perpetrate this theft, and then sanctimoniously justify it all in the name of the public's right to know. What a moral sewer.
Jun 10, 2016 kk in seattle commented on Obama Endorses Clinton, Sanders Isn't Quitting.
@ Spinecrusher: "Privileged white liberal" pretty much defines Bernie's base. Take a look at the states he's won and you won't see anything but. It's the people of color, the queers, the pink-collar workers who can't literally won't be able to afford to feed their families after eight years of Trump who are actually backing Hillary.

Original Andrew must be the last left-winger (the rest are Rush Limbaugh types) who refer to Hillary's prospective nomination as a "coronation." Which tells you a lot about stupidity in general.
