Dec 21, 2016 Centrists Rule the World today commented on Washington State Attorney General Sues Matt Hickey Over Alleged Porn "Audition" Scam.
@24 - actually, an employer offering a job only in order to solicit trade secrets would, I believe, constitute tortious interference, because the company was offering inducements under false pretenses to the employee to get them to violate their obligation of non-disclosure to current employer. Much like in this case, the "prospective employer" would be open to civil, not criminal, action. Much like this case, the odds of the scheme being uncovered would be low.

The fact that we "aren't sure how to feel about this election" and that our first instincts on responding are "send him dildos!" and "party every 100 days" is a great explanation for why the right is running the country (into the apocalypse). We should know exactly how to feel - outraged - and we should be organizing, not making stupid, childish gestures like mailing dildos to the president. Trump's right on this one: it's "Sad!"
Dec 7, 2016 Centrists Rule the World today commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: The Current BF and the Ex-Intern.
I'm sorry, but I don't blame the LW for being jealous. If he's got nothing to hide, he'd be upfront. Between his selective omissions, her mistrust, and their lack of sex, it doesn't sound like a relationship for the ages. Call it and move on. Whatever is actually going on between him and the intern (I'm guessing there is an infatuation) is beside the point.

ICE doesn't pay rewards? Huh. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to repatriate 20 German tourists on the down low? Asking for a friend.
Nov 21, 2016 Centrists Rule the World today commented on Hillary Clinton Is Everything We Have Been Taught Women Should Not Be.
Everyone criticizing the author for engaging in identity politics needs to check the outcome of the election. White America overlooked a litany of lies, malfeasance and incompetence and a parade of sexist comments to elect a white dude as president.

Was misogyny the only potential reason she lost? No Does it deserve to be discussed and emphasized? Yep.
Nov 21, 2016 Centrists Rule the World today commented on Hillary Clinton Is Everything We Have Been Taught Women Should Not Be.
@15 - She had served in two separate branches of government - the legislative as a senator and the executive as Secretary of State. That's to say nothing of her time as First Lady. As a lawyer, she had a technical understanding of the law. As one of the leaders of a philanthropic organization, she's been directly combatting issues of global welfare. As a social justice advocate early in her career, she's confronted discrimination. In other words, she had a fairly comprehensive understanding of the issues facing the country internationally and domestically from multiple sides of the policy fights over them.

Obama came into office having served as a senator. Trump never held any office ever.

Were you really not aware of all that?

I feel for her, and I agree with her cause; but there has to be a better face for reform if this law than a Che Taylor relative. Her involvement may even make it harder to rally support for change.

@15 - what a dumb argument. Here, let me try out your logic: "I don't know why anyone would carry an umbrella that can clearly be wielded as a club when they can buy a garbage bag and stay dry by cutting a few holes in it and wearing it like a poncho. Anyone carrying an umbrella who refuses to give it up to a belligerent officer of the law deserves to be arrested and charged with obstruction." Totally reasonable!

@10 - Yes.

How much is your liberty worth? Because that's what she took from him that day. She stopped him for no reason other than being black, took his property, arrested him and charged him with a crime. And she almost got away with it.

I'd say $760,000 is getting off cheap.

He better win. If he doesn't win, the only solace will be proving to @1 that racism is real and that white people deserve to be judged by the color of their skin when they let it prevent them from dispensing justice to their fellow humans again and again and again. Not that he'll listen. There's not much lower than trolling about reverse-racism in reference to a case of the worst, most blatant racism racism.
