commented on In the Wake of Harassment, Rape Video Star Is Sorry About Misogynist Comments
"I hope this video is brought up on every date and every job interview Nodianos is fortunate enough to land in his life. He should be held accountable again and again and again for the cruel, dehumanizing remarks he made again and again and again on tape."
I totally get where you are coming from Cienna, but I do not think that we should punish people for the rest of their lives for being moronic teenagers. He is a disgusting 18 year old, but he is only 18. I'd hate to have every stupid thing I did or said when I was 18 rubbed in my face today.
I also feel the attitude of forcing people to eat their mistakes for the rest of their lives is a very concervative position. Take, for example, the conservative position on poverty. Their position is that one should 1) finish high schools; 2) not get pregnant out of wedlock; and 3) not get married until finished with school. They believe that if one does this, they will not be poor. But if they violated any of these tenants, and are now poor, it is their own damn fault and they do not deserve any sympathy or public assistance. Nevermind that the mistake of not finishing school happened at the ripe old age of 16, it is still a mistake that you deserve to be punished for in perpetuity.
That is fucked up.
So what I am saying is that we should be punishing this 18 year old fuck now, but not in perpetuity, and wishing a life of suffering for the comments he made when he was 18 is wrong.

@5 - selection is better?! Are you kidding? Selection now is horrid! Most grocery stores only have a small selection of the same crap. I went to BevMo for the first time, and it still had a worst selection than the state run stores had. I had to go to 3 stores just to find a bottle of Jim Beam Rye.

Disability Lifeline is already defunded. Its replacement programs are ABD and MCS. ABD comes with Medicaid, which covers mental health treatment, but MCS does not provide mental health treatment. Not only that, but the measure for being approved for either program is whether your disability prevents you from working. So maybe you are in a horrid depression and having dark thoughts of violence towards others, but as long as you are still capable of showing up to McDonalds 4 days a week and ringing up orders, you are not disabled and are not eligible for state/federal funded health coverage that will help you get mental health treatment.

commented on The Walking Dead Chitty-Chat Club: The Mid-Season Finale!
I really like this season. But it cracked me up when Daryl says, "We're blind leading blind. Let's split up." Hah! I'm glad they didn't actually split up, because it always pisses me off when they do that in movies/TV. "Hmm, were outnumbered and out-gunned. The best idea would probably be to scatter so they can pick us off one at a time."

commented on So, Will You Smoke More Pot When It's Legal?
@14, do you have a source for that? I'm pretty sure planes operate under federal jurisdiction.
I stopped smoking several years ago because I stopped enjoying it. Its legality will not change that, but I am excited for the beginning of the end of marijuana prohibition.
