Your ballot should be arriving soon, Washingtonians. Local elections matter a great deal. This year city and county races are on the ballot. They will decide many quality of life issues.
Y’all, I think that Donald Trump, the President, of America, is racist. From his racist tweets to his racist words, to his racist policy, to his racist history, there are some clues. I guess what I’m saying is that President Trump is a monster.
Last night I saw Seattle Shakespeare’s outdoor showing of Twelfth Night. It was pretty fantastic. I had been to one of their performances a few years ago, and my recollection was that it was pretty small. This time around was quite a bit larger. My one complaint is that there was quite a bit of noise: if next time they could change the flight pattern of airplanes, that would be better.
Look who is running again. Carolyn Long lost her race in the last cycle. It’s still a long shot like last time. If you’re able, they could use some money or someone to knock on doors or do data entry. It’s a long way to go between now and election day, but she could use your help.
I already wrote this post once, but WordPress ate it (it’s definitely WordPress, and not me not saving it).
Anyway, we need to bring back the thorn. Ot þorn. We don’t need Latin speaking scribes or French speaking rulers to tell us what letters we get to use. Just þink about it. We still make a th sound in English, but it isn’t quite t-h. An actual letter is better.
Þat said, the boat has sailed on æ.
I don’t think that getting out of the Iran deal, without a plan going forward, is working out. I can’t wait for the news that they’re 6 months from building a bomb like we heard throughout the Bush and Obama years until the deal was adopted.
It’s the last post before the military parade. A lot of people have talked about why tanks in the streets are bad from a creeping (or at this point sprinting) fascism perspective and what they might do to the infrastructure.
But one thing I would like to add is that we’re still at war in Afghanistan. Maybe finish the war before you declare victory?
The President just said, on a whim,
I have got to say hi to ol’ Kim
Not much would happen
Between these crap men
But once more we legitimized him.
Happy probably the best game of the Women’s World Cup day. USA and France are the 2 best teams. Let’s hope there are some questionable VAR calls. Who doesn’t love waiting 5 minutes only to be disappointed with some ticky tac technicality. Seriously though, super excited.
No more NRA tv. What a sad. Now who will launder Russian money? Now who will mock victims of school shootings? Who will spread false narratives about the 2nd Amendment? There’s still a lot of wingnut welfare out there, but now there’s a bit less.
I am glad to see Jay Inslee’s fossil fuel plan. It is ambitious. It is necessary to be bold on this existential problem. I hope all of the candidates will follow suit.
As Seattle gets denser, and more adults are wearing backpacks, we’re going to have to figure out some ethics. Like, public transportation. If it’s crowded, take it off and put it on the ground. There are signs for that. But even walking through busy streets, or standing, be aware of it. Don’t hit people in the face or make them dodge you.
Grandma, Grandma! What did you do when we started to find out that people were dying in US custody?
Well, sweetheart, I was very concerned. It was a difficult time. So I thought that I would spend my time and talent on the most important thing. I decided that if I didn’t nitpick the people opposing them, who would. So I went online, and I pretended that concentration camps was a phrase only used by Nazis. I, as you can see, was the real hero.
Dave Meinert is buying Mecca (second point). Just thought he could it ride out. Oh what’s a little rape and harassment? I mean, he only owns one restaurant, hasn’t he suffered enough? If anything, he’s the real victim of his repeated predatory behavior over many years. And I thought you were in favor of restorative justice, isn’t that where men don’t get punished in any way, and get to own another restaurant?
With Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaving the White House, who will not give press briefings? Who will they find to spread gossip and administration spin? Who will be described as a “senior administration official” in the press when quoting them adds nothing to their story?
