“I saw a poster that said "No American soldier ever fought for socialism" so I said, "my dad came back from Vietnam with PTSD, killed himself, and the government took care of me".”

“Had that happened today, I would venture to guess you'd be told how big of a freeloader you are, and need to just get over it and move on....Funny on how we spend nearly 150 billion a year on foreign aid and corporate subsidies, less than 60 billion on social welfare for our own people, and complain more about the latter than the former.”

“My niece, whose husband die in his late 20's, was left with 3 young children. She received SS $ for these children.
Now that they are all grown and she no longer receives that money, she is all for shrinking SS.
In other words, when she needed SS, SS was good. Now that she no longer needs SS, SS is bad.
Amazing how many GOPers are all for something (or at least keep quiet about) when they benefit from $$ programs. But the minute they can no longer benefit from said programs, they want then done away with.”
“502 is not the last step in legalization. If you are interested in taking more steps in legalization in Washington check out the Cannabis Child Protection Act currently gathering signatures would legalize a 400 square foot garden for adults 21 and older.”

“The "CCPA" did not make the ballot, and probably never will. These initiatives cost millions of dollars to pass, you don't get a chance very often, don't be foolish vote for 502.”
“Marijuana is safer than alcohol. Adults should be able to buy it by showing their ID or driver's license to prove they are old enough. A doctor's note for marijuana is like a doctor's note for chamomile tea. Stop arresting adults. We stopped arresting adults for alcohol, we need to stop arresting adults who make the safer choice to use marijuana instead of alcohol.”
“You can tell a person's attractiveness by looking at the symmetry of their face. Humans are wired to look for mates that will produce offspring. An asymmetrical face is a sign of some deficiency and triggers our basic instincts to look for a "healthy" mate. One could perform a study to see if any race is statistically more likely to have an asymmetrical face, and that would be one of many ways of scientifically proving that some races are more attractive than others. That being said, I hate racism, and I don't think people should choose partners based on appearance. When people choose partners based on appearance it encourages people to waste time on excessive exercise, diet, makeup, and clothing when they should be spending time studying math and science.”

“I like your way better. However, just TRY to find a job in a super-competitive job market with
poor appearance. Tragic, but yes I will tell the truth. Looks count, but so do other things. Balance is the key.”
“Stop being so selfish. Do something he likes to do. Don't expect him to tell you you're doing a good job when you're not. Don't expect him to say "you have interesting things to talk about" when you don't. etc.”
“Spousal support should have a 1 year expiration. It's the assumption that a woman is a dependent for life that has given rise to the backlash.”

“A woman who, by mutual agreement, stays home and raises the children and creates a life for her husband should not be left high and dry when the guy runs off with a 23-yo cocktail waitress. Running a home and raising children is just as important, if not more important, than running a business. She is entitled to financial compensation for her work.”
