Legal War For WA State Sunshine Law

42Penguins Don't see why this is a problem (1364 comments)

The state has a sunshine law. They used the sunshine law. They shared the results.

I don't see what is potentially damaging about people knowing you signed it anyway. It doesn't make you a gay-bashing red-necked evil conservative. In fact, it could simply mean that you prefer a direct vote to a vote of representatives.

Just going by number of people, a legal drug will probably always be a greater ruin of lives nationally simply because of much wider availability - alcohol and tobacco in the USA.
However, as grandparent suggested, cocaine is probably a lot higher than alcohol on the rate of "users who ruined their lives with it vs total users".

Musicians Protest Use Of Songs By US Jailers

I totally agree. When I first read about Charles Manson, my very first thought was: "How could the Beatles be endorsing that psycho?"

"Anonymous" Hacks Palin's Private Email

42Penguins Re:The crossed the line this time (1733 comments)

At first I thought citing Matt Damon as a source was just another Team America reference about uppity actors, but then I read what he said.

Holy shit. How you believe we originated really matters on whether you should have control of nuclear codes?

Considering recent results from politicians with experience, I think I'll go for the hockey mom.
