Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

I agree with the Style editor. The duty of a journalist these days is not to simply report that "Side A says its raining outside," BUT "Side B says its sunny outside." End of story.
The journalist's job is to look out the effing window and say which is true.

Unfortunately, thanks to Google and Facebook controlling all online ad revenue, there are less journalists than ever before to perform this essential duty.

And Bob M: Philip Van Cleave? You mean the same guy who was nationally humiliated on Showtime for trying to give toddlers under 3 guns disguised as puppets? If that's your model, then I just feel sorry for you.

Re: “OPINION: Testing data shows that Carver Elementary is not alone with score irregularities

Hey Ray,
having one comma before "data" in your whiny complaint is incorrect. There should be no comma. Clearly you can't be trusted.

Re: “Actor and Comedian David Cross on His New Tour, the Uberleft and Why He Said Goodbye to Twitter

Um Richmond lister. I think it makes sense if an interviewer asks a political comedian a question or two about politics. But gee, I don't know .... maybe they should've done a "regular interview" and talked about snowcones. It is summer!

Re: “Actor and Comedian David Cross on His New Tour, the Uberleft and Why He Said Goodbye to Twitter

Good plan, "Edward Snowden" allow the worst candidate to win so you can make a point -- I'm sure that will help your cause. You're just making my argument for me.

I agree with the lock on the debate, that's why you fight to change the system BEFOREHAND, as I said. The "huge percentage" who don't vote - deserve the horrors they get. And they deserve to be called out for helping make the situation much worse for more vulnerable groups. Saying that things wouldn't have been MUCH better under Hillary is just plain wrong.

And yeah, I read the article above. They ask a political comedian for his take on the left and he gives it to them. You should probably stick to reading only outlets that agree completely with you. I'm sure the magazine editors will be heartbroken that they don't fit your particular mold of activist agenda. That is, the kind with no chance of ever getting anything done until the country is in shambles.

Re: “Actor and Comedian David Cross on His New Tour, the Uberleft and Why He Said Goodbye to Twitter

Dear "Julian Assange" - I'm no Clinton fan, and I'd happily vote for a third party candidate (my money went to Bernie) but you have to CHANGE the system first.

That means do real work before the election instead of complaining to people online afterwards and calling 'got ya' to anyone who doesn't recognize an obscure Honduran environmental activist reference.

My point was simply this -- and (likely one of your idols) Noam Chomsky agrees -- when you only have TWO choices thanks to an admittedly corrupt system and one is going to do a lot more damage than the other: It's your moral responsibility to vote for the lesser of two evils. It's a simple concept.

The only person bullying here is you.

Re: “Actor and Comedian David Cross on His New Tour, the Uberleft and Why He Said Goodbye to Twitter

The sad reality is that any vote not for Hillary was a vote for Trump. You don't get to play the political system you wish you had, but the one we have in reality.

Typical uberleft comment by Berta. Its not enough to agree with her 99 percent on politics, it has to be 1,000 percent on all the strategies too, or you're the enemy. This is why the extreme left has no momentum or coherent political strategy, and why they repel voters ...

Re: “Black Swan Books Owner "Disagrees Strongly" with Bannon's Views

I was joking because you seem to never miss a chance to slam Style. I never see you contribute anything to the conversation but putdowns. And "flutterings" are strange, not "is strange." Verb agreement.

The "news" of this event is not "news" anymore, since its been out since Saturday -- which was my point. This story seems more about social media reaction and Richmond being part of a national conversation -- as well as the aftermath re: the shop owner.
