Re: “Poll! Is Uber's Sacking of Portland the Best or the Worst?

The GOP bastards are going to do their best to shut down the NLRB in the next session. More than ever, the working people of the country need to stick together. Uber may be convenient, but we're essentially paying scabs to cut out a union job.

Some people will go against full time employment for working people on principle and wreck union jobs. I can't stop them. But I can counter them and always buy union when possible. So, despite the hype, I won't be using uber.

Re: “Why Anti-Gay Christian Bigots Always Lead With Leviticus

Not that it really matters, but Paul was objecting to Greek pagans more than homosexuality in Romans. If I remember correctly, the context is clear as long as you don't cherry pick the single line. I don't care enough to look it up again though.

Re: “The NYT's Unwitting Oregon Troll Baiting

As someone that was conceived, born, raised, and still live in this state of ours, I will now soak any pride from that statement by quoting famous Irish martyr James Connolly:

"The one thing certain about it is that no sensible man can take a pride in being born an Irishman. What had he to do with it that he should be proud?

"He did not carefully sketch out beforehand the location in which he desired to be born, and then instruct his mother accordingly. Whether he was born in Ireland or in Zululand, in the Coombe or in Whitechapel, he most certainly was not consulted about the matter. Why then, this pride?

"The location of your birthplace was a mere accident – as much beyond your control as the fact I was born so beautiful was beyond mine. Hem.

"And you don’t see me putting on airs."

Re: “Where Are You Going to Watch the World Cup?

Years ago, I brought my friend from Germany to Portland. The World Cup was going on at that time. He insisted that it was going to be everywhere, though I denied it. We went to my local pub in Portland and after pool was over on ESPN8 (or whatever) the World Cup came on. My German friend was appalled that it wasn't a big deal, but finally he could watch it. Just then, someone in the bar yelled, "What is this shit? Turn it off!" Everyone cheered. And they turned the channel to dominos.

Imagine my utter disappointment when I moved back home to Portland years later to find that everyone had fucking sold out and decided to go ultra-mainstream.

Re: “Have We Reached Peak Beard?

I grew up in the rural Northwest. Like 3/4ths of men there that could throughout history in the area, I grow a beard for at least six-months out of the year.

Quite frankly, I didn't care what stylish jerks from out of the area said about it when I started doing it. I still don't give a shit what transplants to the region think about it twenty years later.

Sure the metropolitan areas have always had fewer beards than the rural areas, but it's not like it was ever not a thing. The only thing that's changed is that people that give a shit about fashion started adopting a Northwest norm for a second. Fine. Do it or don't, but is it really time to start fretting about style points based on a regional (and functional) tradition for the last two hundred years because you're getting tired of the little ironic fad your friends started doing to make fun of us anyway?

Re: “CONDEMN OR ALLOW: The Zach Braff Movie That Zach Braff Didn't Want to Pay For

I couldn't even make it through that trailer. I don't want to live in a world where a movie like that succeeds.
