Achieve the Four Modernizations.

Apr 4, 2014 RVPMB commented on Beacon Hill Greenbelt Proposal Pits Social Justice Cyclists Against Environmentalists.
Cyclists already ignore rules, safety and courtesy city-wide, making it hazardous for cars on the road and pedestrians walking on the sidewalk alike. Now they want to take over parks and nature, too. Screw 'em. Leave the greenbelt to nature and lower impact uses. It's a greenbelt, not a racetrack. It's a place for nature and quiet, not a place for assholes on expensive bikes to rip up the hillside, off-road over plants, disturb wildlife habitat, and mow down any pedestrians who happen by.
Mar 24, 2014 RVPMB commented on The Good Wife Was Completely Shocking Last Night.
The tension between Alicia and Will - first romantic, then adversarial competitors - has been the spine of this show. It's hard to imagine how the show survives such a shocking turn, but it will be exciting to find out. It really is one of the best shows on TV currently.
Mar 11, 2014 RVPMB commented on Man Second Amendments Best Friend to Death.
The headline - and therefore the mindset - is even wrong in the linked article. "Man Accidentally Shoots Best Friend" should read "Man Negligently Shoots Best Friend" or "Man Needlessly Shoots Best Friend."
Feb 17, 2014 RVPMB commented on A Florida Artist Charged for Deliberately Dropping a Vase Made by the Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei.
It is shameful that society should value a vase at that amount when the real value of a K-cup is still in question. The vandal did society a favor in reminding us about not only overpriced vases, but also our priorities (convenient single serving coffee). Also: The vases are ugly.
Jul 10, 2013 RVPMB commented on What's Your Sexual Orientation?.
@9: But the list makes no such distinction. It has "gay" (covering men and women) and "lesbian" (women only). There's no "gay man" category. I know more than a few lesbians who are perfectly being referred to as "gay," so this ambiguity may skew these highly scientific results.
Jul 10, 2013 RVPMB commented on What's Your Sexual Orientation?.
Isn't lesbian a subsection of gay? That is, I thought gay meant homosexual, and lesbian is a female homosexual.
May 23, 2013 RVPMB commented on The K in Garlicky Is Stupid.
It's like the lack of an "e" in the middle of judgment. How does that "g" make a soft "j" sound without an "e" behind it? Oh, the pain...
May 9, 2013 RVPMB commented on Your Dog Sucks.
If you let your dog (leashed or off-leash) touch another person in an unwelcome, unwanted, or harmful way, you have committed a battery (i.e. crime) against the other person.
Apr 5, 2013 RVPMB commented on The State of American Democracy.
#15 FTW.
Mar 26, 2013 RVPMB commented on Be Careful What You Wish for on Prop 8 and DOMA.
Waiting for equality is not acceptable for anyone.
