commented on It Was a Very Bad Week for Tim Eyman
So is Timmy the flimmy-flammy man going to be asking for "donations" to fuel his recovery?
I supposed I should feel bad for him being hurt, but honestly, it couldn't have happened to a better candidate.
commented on In 5-4 Vote, City Council Kills Street Vacation for New Sodo Arena
The misogyny evident on twitter was something to be proud of for sure. Even some of the media (yes King 5 - one of them was yours) made gender-related comments that were completely unnecessary. I expect that from Utah, where women are second-class citizens mostly good for breeding & caring for the house & the progeny, but for a city that prides itself on being progressive, many of those comments were anything but.
commented on Washington Public Schools Are Criminally Underfunded, But Governor Inslee Won't Commit to Vetoing Charter School Law
Utah legislators LOVE charter schools. It's their supplementary income! Sell the land where the charter school will go - profit! Hire the fam's construction company to build the school - profit! Another family member gets the charter approved, runs the school, hires the rest of the family to work at the school for outrageous wages and very little work. Then hire a bunch of uncertificated teachers who are desperate for a job, pay them crap wages, make them work 12 hour days under threat of losing their jobs if they don't. Oh - don't forget to site your charter school out in the suburbs, and since no transportation is offered, only the middle-upper class parents are able to drive them there. Also, adding in some required volunteer hours further ensures that you'll get the families where only one parent has to work. Finally, making sure that you don't serve lunch keeps that free and reduced riff-raff out of your school. But make sure your charter states that it is for low-income kids, under-served populations, and kids who need an alternate setting for education. Of course, it's not your fault they didn't enroll, it's in your charter, after all. Then sit back and profit away! Oh - and push for more funding for charter schools when you sit in your legislative job, that way you can increase your profit margin. Aren't charter schools wonderful? All that public money, ripe for the picking?

commented on About Josh Dugger's Ashley Madison Account
Child-molesting adulterer Josh Duggar is only sad he got caught. Never in his arrogant Christian dreams did he think HE would be exposed as the lying hypocrite he is. What a pathetic piece of not-quite-human flesh.
$10 says he'll be running for a GOP office pretty soon on a "family values" platform.
