I See Your Twuuuuu Colors Shining Through … Again

Progressive Empathy

They came, they gentrified, they kicked black people, poor people, and pretty much everyone except affluent, ex-suburban white kids out of the city. Before you knew it, wide swaths of American cities were affluent ghettos filled to the brim with white kids from the burbs.

Then, they drew up some signs which read “Black Lives Matter”, and they marched around their newly-gentrified domains. You know, because they care about black people. Just not enough to let them stay in their homes.

All was right with the world of the ex-suburban fauxgressive, until 150+ people were killed in Paris. Then,

Seattle Gumwall Final Day

Seattle Gumwall – The Day Before

We are on one hell of a roll I must say.

Lest anyone doubt the veracity of my vision for Seattle, on Tuesday, we ameliorated one of the few true tourist attractions that Seattle has.  Anymore at least.  Especially with Ride-the-Ducks sidelined.

Seattle Gumwall – The Day Before

For those who may not be aware, the Seattle Gum Wall is no more.  On Tuesday morning, it was blasted clean by a work crew, which is why Monday evening, I headed down for some final pictures, as well as to stick some more of

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 very

Collision at 6th & Stewart


Note that cars continue to run red lights even after the collision.

I will ask for your forgiveness in advance for this post.  I’m still very shaken up.  I’m still very angry.  I’m still very disturbed.

I just saw a person get seriously injured, and perhaps killed.

I was walking near 6th & Stewart street when I heard a CRUNCH.  I stopped in my tracks, hoping I hadn’t heard what I knew I had.  When I got to the intersection, all hope evaporated. There laid a man in the street, and under the front wheels of a nearby car

Ruling Class: Nobody Leaves the Cage ‘Til We Say So

King Thumbs Down

A proposed new ordinance in King County aims to slam the door on the so-called “catch and release” plan for non-violent felony offenders booked into the county jail.

County Council member Jane Hague introduced a measure this week that would bar county administrators from setting a cap on the number of inmates booked into King County’s two jails.

The measure says that only judges have the authority to release felons “…to make sure we place that authority where the constitution says it belongs – with the court,” said fellow council member Rod Dembowski in a Law and Justice Committee

The Crucifixion and Martyrdom of Amanda Knox


It’s over.

Amanda Knox has finally cast off the shackles of her oppressors, and she’s proven to the world that a rich white woman with a highly-paid PR firm behind her, and ties to rich Democratic politicians, can still be treated fairly in our cruel, cruel society.

She suffered for the sins of affluent white girls everywhere, and with a little help from some rich and powerful people, she emerged victorious.

It’s your classic underdog story.

A woman is accused of murder; uses Page 1 from the White Girl Murderer playbook and blames a black guy; is convicted; is un-convicted

Keeping it Real

Washington State Democratic Party


To all of you who claim to be surprised by the Democrat’s latest wealth transfer bill in Olympia, well, you shouldn’t be.   After all, the Democratic Party was the party which fought for slavery in the Civil War.  The Democratic Party is the party of the Ku Klux Klan. From 1933 to 1960, the Democratic Party opposed 80% of all Civil Rights Bills.  40% of Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act (as opposed to 20% of Republicans who opposed).

That the Democratic Party would support a bill allowing wealthy white landowners to seize more of black people’s meager earnings

I See Your Twuuuu Colors, Shining Through

Relaxed Payday Lending

We’re a state run by the Democratic Party, and if you ask anyone around here, they’ll tell you …

The other political parties hate poor people and black people and all other minorities except wait, what’s this, payday loans disproportionately affect poor people and black people and other minorities, and our legislature just sold them to big business.

Despite this, we’ll vote for these very same people in the next election cycle.


Because we don’t give a damn about poor people or black people or other minorities. Seriously. We could not care less. We just want to feel

Was it Something I Said?

Figgy Protest Cancelled

Word on the street has it that, once it was pointed out to him that homeless and elderly people were slightly stronger, and thus slightly better able to defend themselves, than a children’s choir … Mo Better Blues Hawk wanted nothing to do with tonight’s event.

I’d say it was a solid decision.

Well done, toddlers.

For once.

A Cowardly Christmas Spawns a Wake-up Call

Child Bullying Cowards

Child Bullying, minority displacing, priapism curing, emotionally-stunted, psychopathic, pathetic cowards on the lookout for grown-ups or anyone who might be able to fight back.

You know, I’ve taken on the local protest groups quite a bit in the pages of my blog, but I’ve always done so as a protestor myself, and there’s always been at least some element of tongue-in-cheek expression in my opposition. Despite my criticism of their sincerity, I’ve always maintained some level of hope that I was wrong about them, and I’ve always felt a tiny bit of, even if it is not always palpable,
