You know, I’ve never heard anyone call fauxgressives brave, and if this statue deep in “Amen Territory” is any indication, I’m not going to hear it for some time.
Yes, Donald Trump is evil incarnate. We know this because the wealthy elitists in media, politics, and academia tell us so. Especially those elitists who share a political party with none other than the venerable Ku Klux Klan.
It is these very bastions of ethics, not to mention their gentrifying offspring, who inform us that it is uncool … so very, very uncool to be a Trump supporter in 2016.

So, I hear around town that the dumb people have nominated Donald Trump as their party’s candidate.
Ha ha ha. Those dummies. Those foolish uneducated dummies. Those stupid sons and daughters of rednecks who grew up poor and went into the military instead of having their tuitions paid at UW or Evergreen or some other good white person institution of higher homogenous diversification which is filled to the brim with ex-patriots from lilly-white affluent suburbs.
Those stupid McStupidsters. When will they learn? When will they wise up? Big dummies. Hey dummies! Yeah, you … dummies. You’re dummies. Ya dumb dummies.

I am a person who wears headphones for most of the day as I whack away at command-lines and code, and as a result of this, have suffered hearing damage over the years as I stumbled upon one auto-start video after another, most of which play at twice the decibel level of my music.
In a fit of self-defense, years ago, I resorted to using an ad-blocker, and I quite frankly never looked back.
I’m evil, though.
At least that’s what I’m told by numerous website-operators. Too many to count at this point.
They tell me that by using

On my way home from work today, I stopped to observe a Black Lives Matter rally in Westlake Park.
I looked around at all of the people, at all of the signs, and I watched and waited for indication that someone, anyone, knew what was going on in this country.
That indication did not come. When all was said and done, I could do little more than mutter “poor fools”, hang my head and walk away.
So far this year, 136 black people (overwhelmingly male) have been killed by the police. In the same period of time, 279 white

LinkedIn would like you to know something.
This isn’t easy for them to talk about, you see, but a few years ago, they were victimized. Oh, it was awful, it was, and LinkedIn is still suffering.
How were they victimized?
Well, you see, after they used every less-than-honest trick in the book to procure your private information, they turned around and stored that private information in an insecure manner, which in turn caused your data to be stolen, and then sold on the black market.
MY GOD CAN THIS COMPANY EVER GET A BREAK??!!! SOMEBODY THINK OF LINKEDIN! WON’T

Black folks have slavery.
Poor whites have slavery as well as massive de-humanizing propaganda, bigotry campaigns, and a calculated effort by the elite to drive down their incomes and living standards.
For Jews, it was The Holocaust.
Asians have internment.
What about affluent white women, though? Now that they graduate from college more often, live longer, wield greater political power, and control a greater percentage of consumer spending than any other group, what claim to oppression do they hold today?
Well, I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but in Seattle, they’ve got “hearing opinions they don’t agree

The Outrage Machine, perhaps the best example of modern American craftsmanship there is, has really been churning along the past couple of years, and it’s been doing so, well past the red line.
Alas, it seems to be sputtering a bit, as the latest creation of said machine falls well short of what most people would generally consider plausible. Not that this matters in the least. Eh, read it for yourself.
Did you get all of that?
Woman denied boarding, but she wasn’t really denied boarding, and, well, I see what’s going on here. The Outrage Machine. Something’s

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you want to know what the mainstream will be talking about tomorrow, listen to what I’m saying today.
What do I mean by this? I’ll tell you. The life cycle of a Seattle Rex position is roughly this:
Ignore it and pretend that it was never said Outrage, snark, and ridicule A quiet period, as the evidence of my correctness mounts, but where everyone waits for an “expert” or fashionable observer to confirm what I’ve always known. Acquiescence, where the mainstream finally adopts my opinion as its own,

When one has lived a charmed life, it can be difficult to imagine what it must be like to be tormented by mental illness. Add to this the fact that many mentally ill people are simply dumped onto the streets when they have no money, and it can be downright impossible to relate to the people who have experienced this pain and suffering firsthand. After all, when we don’t “feel emotionally secure” in a private, locked toilet stall … a national crisis is declared, legislation is passed, and social media erupts with sympathy for us and shame for anyone

Value Village in Pike-Pine is no more, and all we have to remember it by is this display in what used to be their window.
It says “Rent Control”, and it’s something I very much agree with. There is no incentive whatsoever to create thriving neighborhood businesses, to get involved in the community, to be anything other than a transient when you know that, should you succeed in making the neighborhood a better place to live, you’ll be immediately kicked out while your unit is sold to someone wealthier. “Thanks for everything you’ve done to make this such a
