It's not very popular.

@7 Okay I'll bite. Please explain why the most popular politician, and by far the most popular Democrat (like it or not), in the country won't win the nomination.

@30 Yeah, try something in one or a few states, demonstrate that it is effective and popular, then spread it to other -- or all -- states. How terrible.
Jul 31, 2013 Moag commented on The Worst Jobs We’ve Ever Had.
Dishwasher. Yeah, probably lots of people washed dishes "professionally" as a teenager. But what made this one special was the location: a bad Indian restaurant in the U District. So as I walked home at 1:30 AM, on top of the grease, sweat, detergent, and bleach smells coating every crevice of my body, was the unwash-off-able stench of bad curry.

Surprisingly, twenty years later, I love me some good (good!) chicken tandoori or masoor dal or even curry.
Jun 26, 2013 Moag commented on Supreme Court Punts on Prop 8, Thereby Clearing the Way for Gay Marriage in California.
As pleased as I am that the Supremes struck down DOMA, I am equally displeased with this ruling on Prop 8. By accepting that hostile state executives can refuse to defend a law, it opens an avenue for conservative state executives to more easily kill progressive initiatives. In this instance, the final outcome is good, but it's a terrible precedent.
Jun 24, 2013 Moag commented on HONK! Fest, YES!!!.
Soundwave is great fun at Sounders games. They cover Macklemore, Nirvana, Outkast, and much more. Cee Lo's "Fuck You" is especially good when played as a marching band instrumental, as one wonders how many attendees know the words of that upbeat little number.
Jun 5, 2013 Moag commented on The Media Is Missing Important Microhousing Issues.
"Affordable housing is simply being used as a cloak for greed, and to take advantage of individuals seeking more affordable living in a tight market."

Concern trolling at its finest. Oh yes, Dennis doesn't want people to rent apartments that they are willing to rent at a rate they are willing to pay that is less than they would pay for a larger apartment.. because Dennis is so concerned that they may get taken advantage of. Yeah, sure, that's why.
Jun 4, 2013 Moag commented on RIP, Herfy's in Fremont.
Herfy's in the U District was the place for me and friends to go after Rocky Horror. Sigh, I'm old.
May 31, 2013 Moag commented on Two-Year-Old Looking for Gum Finds Gun, Shoots Himself in the Face.
The only thing that can stop a bad two-year old from shooting himself is a good two-year old to shoot him before he can shoot himself... or something like that.
Apr 28, 2013 Moag commented on Surprise: Governor Inslee Calls Special Legislative Session After Lawmakers Fail to Pass Budget.
It seems every reporter has made the same mistake, now including Goldy: The legislature passed the regular 2-year transportation budget. It is largely status quo and noncontroversial. They have not passed a proposed separate 12-year transportation revenue package, which would increase the gas tax by 10 cents and fund a bunch of new stuff and is quite controversial. They will discuss the latter during the special session.
Apr 10, 2013 Moag commented on Suspect Allegedly Pulls Gun on Hired Driver, Hired Driver Pulls Legally Concealed Gun on Suspect, Gun Fight Ensues.
@2 You're assuming Powell's gun saved his life. Actually, it seemed to have nearly killed him by starting a gun fight. Though we can never say precisely what would have happened had things been done differently, it is more likely that Powell would have been uninjured (albeit, out a few bucks) had he not pulled (or not carried) a gun. The all-guns-all-the-time crowd likes to pretend that guns make everything better, but they more frequently make things worse (and that's not even counting the accidental shootings).
