Um, that would be Susan Rice, Dom, not "Race."

@1: I think it was intentional.

Got it, guys. Thanks.

Why are the mayor, governor, Inslee, so deafeningly silent on the 520 matter?

@3 Also, your HP story is wrong. It was a $11.1 billion acquisition, and they're taking an $8.8 billion impairment charge for it. http://www.theverge.com/2012/11/20/36703…

Microsoft fueled by shit...well I think we already knew that

RE: Businesses having temper tantrums about Obama's re-election:
What a bunch of sore loser crybabies.

RE: Republicans opposing Susan Rice.
Same as the comment above. They're lashing out at nothing... cutting off their noses to spite their faces. Are republicans going to sabotage their own election chances in the next cycle AGAIN?? Do these people never fucking learn?

RE: Ron Paul suggesting secession is "American."
Nope... I guess these people never do fucking learn.

plus the HP link is wrong.

Didn't SW have a person-on-the-street fashion column years before the Sfranger? Where What When or something like that.

Request:

Can you please have Mudede write up a review of John "on the run" McAfee's new blog:

@7 It's like you're reading my mind.
13
Yes, truly there is nothing more patriotic than to throw a hissy fit because you didn't get your way. To take your ball and go home. What a troll.

Dominic, how could you write up the morning news without noticing today's blow job piece by CASEY MCNERTHNEY, SEATTLEPI.COM STAFF, "Hempfest opens Seattle store and office"?

I think this is my favorite part of the piece:
When Hempfest began in 1991, "I think a lot of people didn't take it seriously," McPeak said Friday. "And now I think the federal government takes legalization very seriously."

RE: Screwing Employees Out Of Health Insurance

Boycott. Simple as that. No more money for employers who treat labor like sh*t.

No more Denny’s/Dairy Queen, no more Red Lobster and Olive Garden, no more Papa John’s pizza, no more Applebee’s, don't stay at Westgate Resorts, and eff Murray Energy.

The Microsoft bashing is really tiresome.

That Leo Apotheker was a pretty shrewd operator. He paid $12 billion for $3 billion worth of company, as a result of which he was dumped by HP, earning something like $13 million in total compensation for eleven months' work -- including a $3 mil bonus, even though HP lost $30 billion in market capitalization during his tenure -- and leaving them with this now shell of a company. Now that's some top-notch CEOing!

The worst thing is, Autonomy is Tottenham Hotspur's shirt sponsor. I have to walk around with this bogus company's logo on my chest. And I thought Mansion was bad.

@15: Never saw an easier boycott. Denny's sucks, Dairy Queen is mediocre at best, and Red Lobster and Olive Garden are both awful.

If you are like me and will not be visiting these places anyway, consider sending their corporate headquarters/franchisee a letter saying that because they are punishing workers for the election results (or just treating them like shit anyway), you will not be visiting their place, and you will tell everyone you know never to go there.

@16: Would that be all the mocking of Microsoft, or all the times I wanted to bash my past PCs because the operating system was an unstable, bloated piece of shit?

Zing.

@17, he's a job creator.

Thanks, Dom, for the info about Darden. I missed it. Those of us who want the Affordable Healthcare for America Act to succeed need to stay informed with regard to companies trying to fuck this thing up. Boycotts are an excellent tool, and I believe there are enough of us supporters out there to make an impact. The important thing is to get the word out on those trying to throw wrenches into this wonderful new machine.

Shame on Darden and the like! And frankly? This would be an easy boycott staying out of Olive Garden and Red Fucking Lobster.

@20,

It's like the boycott of Wal-Mart over their labor practices. I haven't set foot in one in almost ten years, and it was only the one time. Easy peasy.
22
These states should not only be allowed to secede we should make a reality show about it. It could be called "Starving Dummies."

I remember how dull things were back before The Stranger invented street fashion. In 1810.

“There is nothing treasonous or unpatriotic about wanting a federal government that is more responsive to the people it represents.”
—Ron Paul


Abraham Lincoln disagreed with you on this point, Ron. Actively working to destroy the union is pretty much the definition of treason. Also, it is interesting that you think that having a president who was chosen by the majority of the electorate is not as "responsive" as one that doesn't.

@21 - The problem is that Wal-Mart offers prices poor, struggling people can't resist (and I know the arguments about the cost of low prices). I boycotted them for years and one Saturday I went with my sisters and saw what they charge for toothpaste, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. as compared to a drugstore or a grocery. I saved maybe 30-40%. I'm afraid it would take something really bad - on the scale of blowing up the Statue of Liberty to make room for a superstore - to keep people out of Wal-Mart (and even that wouldn't do it for some), but people can find a reasonable facsimile or even something cheaper than a Darden restaurant. They can even eat at home. The only thing cheaper (price-wise) than Wal-Mart in many cases is shoplifting which I don't advocate.
