Seattle Space Needle Reflection at Night

Ever Wonder What it Would Look Like?

If the children of the 1% piled into your city, called themselves “progressives”, then proceeded to elect 1%er after 1%er to public office while railing against the evils of the 1%?

Did you ever wonder what it would look like if, after being elected, said officials proceeded to stand on a street corner with your city, spread its ass cheeks wide open, and offer it up for bareback rough fucking to every John with the requisite funds?

Did you ever wonder what it would look like if, in addition to all of the above, said “servants” sweetened the deal by

Irony

Allow us Americans to show the Chinese how this freedom thing is done.

Take that you oppressive Chinese people!

This sign was put up today at 6th & Stewart, on a public sidewalk, next to a public street.

Yes, there are few lengths America won’t go to obsessively protect the safety of the ruling-class, including, say, suspending what meager rights the floating turds a/k/a “citizens” have left. That’s just who we are as a country.

Hey, Chinese people …. JEALOUS?

At least you have a goal to aim for.

Wait …

Picture of the Night

Convergence Zone

 

If you look out to the horizon, behind the Queen Anne antennas, there it is. A band of rain about 15 miles north of Seattle, caused by the slipstream effect of the Olympic Mountains.

Another Wet Weekend

Potential residents of Seattle, take note … I took the above picture this weekend.

I could take it just about any weekend, though.

I’m not making this up. What you see above has been played out every, single, solitary day in this very city since roughly May.

Looks miserable, doesn’t it?

I mean, look at those people, they’re drenched from head to toe.

Look at that picture. No, really, look at it. Study it hard. Every time you think of Seattle, I want you to think of that picture, and I want you to remember that it happens nearly

White People on The Seattle Teacher Strike

Welcome to Seattle, where offering a 14% raise over the course of 3 years, while agreeing to all other demands, equals “bullying”.

Kind of puts the whole “bullying epidemic” into perspective, doesn’t it?

 

I’ll Get Right On That

You ever get the feeling that people don’t live in the same reality that you do?

So let me get this straight?

Our already-highest-paid teachers want a double-digit pay increase because they had to “endured the recession without one”?

Suffice to say, most people endured the recession without a raise … scratch that … a great many people endured the recession without a job. And without a home.

It’s the third year in a row my kids’ education is being held for ransom.

Third year in a row we find out within 12 hours of school starting, whether

A Solution to the Seattle Teacher’s Strike

A few years ago, we were informed that a school bus could no longer be sent to pick up our 10 year-old daughter. The school system had run out of money for buses we were told, which meant that my daughter had to walk in the dark to 3rd & Pine street every morning to catch a city bus. For those who aren’t aware, this is a rather notorious drug-dealing corner that 35 year-old transplant girls mention walking through when they want to impress other ex-suburban transplants with their urban-cred.

Oh, I can hear suburban moms cringing at the
