The Seattle Times editorial board and I completely agree on Internet radio. Don’t get scared… things like this happen.

And in somewhat tangentially related news, publishers of our city’s two dailies are popping champagne corks this morning: “Seattle newspapers’ circulation dip smaller than in years past.” Though…

The new numbers indicate the declines at The Seattle Times and P-I would have been steeper but for increased sales of deeply discounted papers.

Um… how do you “deeply discount” something that costs 50-cents?

You give away a lot of free copies.

I get free copies of the Times periodically at my home without even being asked – every once in a while, for a whole week.

Pity I don’t get such consideration from the P-I… ;-)

“We are not here to assimilate. We are here to spread Islam and change the constitution to Islam.” This is what Nani Darwish was told by her family when she came to America as a muslim. Wake up! THIS is the real attempt at theocracy that you should have concern for. Darwish just quoted this on TV today. It’s real. She has broken away and has written “Now They Call Me Infidel.” No more head in the sand. SHe is alarmed that America doesn’t ‘get it’, when it comes to this. She is trying to change that.

3. George W. Bush lost the WAR and GBS knows that conservatives politicians and their supporters are TROOP HATERS!! spews:

At first I thought by the headline that you meant some Repbulican had just told the truth or was completely honest.

As well on the liars front, Bush & Cheney still hold to their lies leading us into the Iraq War. Conservative voters are still stupid sheep who believe these people who have committed criminal conspiracy.

Waaaa-hoooooo.

Hey, why don’t you conservatives celebrate by enlisting the the Army or Marine Corp?

Friday ABC expects to out several additional Publican perverts in the current DC sex scandal. Ah the right wing version of moral majority – in other words, the moral majority are neither!

6. ArtFart spews:

5 WTF? This is the same network that ran a “docudrama” last year “commemorating” 9/11 by trying to blame it on Clinton?

7. RightEqualsStupid spews:

ArtFart maybe they got tired of being the Publican’s butt boys? Also, it’s going to be a big national story and they might realize that they have to at least pretend to be a real news organization since all the major networks will cover it. Of course FAUX NEWS will be running some special on terror on our doorstep or some such shit hoping to deflect.

Why do you moonbats want us to lose? Why do you take such glee when American soldiers die? Why do you hate the military?

One of you moonbats… I think it was “Will” said he was a big Breck Girl supporter ’cause TBG wants to end poverty.

I do too… but I’ll bet our approaches are different. We’ll see…

“how do you ‘deeply discount’ something that costs 50-cents?”

Charge 25 cents. Frank Blethen’s circulation among the rabbit population dropped to zero when he doubled the price overnight.

11. Roger Rabbit spews:

@2 So? The fundies aren’t willing to assimilate, either. They’re determined to convert everyone to creationism and wingnutism. They’re every bit as intolerant and bellicose as the Islamo militants. And since there’s a lot more of them, they’re obviously the bigger threat.

The First Amendment requires government to keep its beak out of religion precisely so people like this can’t use the powers, offices, and institutions of government to impose religious fascism on the rest of us. You wingnuts may want to think twice before destroying that precedent, because the demographics of America are changing (whether you like it or not), and someday in the not-so-distant-future, YOU will be the ethnic and religious minority on this continent.

Instead of talking about these rags, the discussion should be about the King County elections proposed unsecret barcoded ballets supplied by Diebolt.

I see in today’s news that Wolfie is crying “smear!” because people are criticizing him for lining his girlfriend’s pocket with taxpayer money.

Isn’t he one of the pukes who used to prattle about “taking responsibility?”

15. Daddy Love spews:

Gee, should we be more worried about the 0.5% of the total population in the US who are Muslim, or about rather the subset of those people who might conceivably hold views anything close to what Noni Darwish claims (certainly fewer than 100%), or should we worry a little about the theocrats underpinning one of our largest politicial parties, including a fair number of Dominionists?

Democrats resist both Christian and Muslim theocrats, and will not yield our Constitution to either.

Why do you support politicians who won’t vote to support the military?

If you “say” you support the troops why don’t you show it by taking their place?

If you join I’ll pay Goldy your $100 gambling debt and buy you one of those new and imporved helmets that the Republicans wouldn’t buy for our soldiers.

Will you be a man and join the Army, or just a pussy?

Pussy, I’m sure of it. Because that’s what you are. A big ol’ TROOP HATIN’ PUSSY.

Prove me wrong. Join the military.

Mark The TROOP HATER @ 8:

Here’s my proof, BITCH.

TROOP HATERS i.e. Republicans
Rep. Dave Reichert gets a rating for supporting the troops a FUCKING D+ ALMOST A GOD DAMNED “F”!!!!!!!
Rep. Doc Hastings gets a rating for supporting the troops a whopping C A notch better than Jim McDermott.
Rep. Cathy McMorris gets a rating for supporting the troops a FUCKING D ALMOST A GOD DAMNED “F”!!!!!!!
Washington’s TROOP HATERS GPA for their unwillingness to support our troops: 1.33

Fat, dumb, and unpatriotic is now way to go trough life, you TROOP HATERS!

Click on this link to take you to the web site of the IAVA a non-partisan, non-profit, veterans group. http://www.capwiz.com/iava/dbq/officials/

19. George W. Bush lost the WAR and GBS knows that conservatives politicians and their supporters are TROOP HATERS!! spews:

All the IAVA does is work with elected officials to vote in favor of legislation that effect troops, vets and the military families.

Period.

No political ax to grind of any kind.

They’re just soldiers who’ve served in the War on Terror that want the government to do the right thing by our military and their familes.

Puddybud has come out against this group, but he’s only showing his true colors and they are neither red, white or blue and they definetly RUN.

What are your colors, Mark?

Who did you vote for as your congressional rep?

Click on the link and find me just ONE Republican either congressional rep or senator that was rated an “A” by the IAVA meaning the support the troops at least 90% of the time.

Go ahead, see if you can find it.

20. ArtFart spews:

“Support the troops”….yeah right. Send ‘em to the other side of the planet and leave ‘em there until they’re all dead.

We’re getting to the point where the wingnuts ought to be worried about the prospect of these people coming back. As became apparent in the hearings last week, our men and women in uniform aren’t so stupid as to understand who’s responsible for sending them into a clusterfuck.

21. ArtFart spews:

18 Meant to say “aren’t so stupid as not to understand.

Folks, I don’t think that an attempt to swift boat Jessica Lynch and the Tillman brothers is going to work very well. And we haven’t heard from Janis Karpinski yet. That’s going to be a real eyebrow-raiser.

23. RightEqualsStupid spews:

Why does George Bush hate the troops? We’ve provided funding and Baby Bush, the AWOL coward plans to stop the troops from getting this money by using his veto. If he supported the troops he’d sign it.

24. George W. Bush lost the WAR and GBS knows that conservatives politicians and their supporters are TROOP HATERS!! spews:

For all you TROOP HATING Conservatives out there who thinks Republicans support the troops here’s more proof for you they don’t at the IAVA site (Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America).

Of all the Senators in the Congress NOT one Democrat scored below a ”B” in supporting our troops, vets, and military families with their vote. NOT ONE!!

Conversely not one Republican scored above a ”C” in supporting the troops. Only Senators Snow & Collins from Maine, and Senator Specter from Pennsylvania scored a “C”! The rest scored ”D’s”!
With the exceptions of Republican Senators from Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, they all scored a big FAT ”F”!!!!

It’s a simple formula, here’s the excerpt from the IAVA site:
To calculate the Ratings, IAVA reviewed all legislation voted on in the Congress since September 11, 2001. For each piece of legislation that affected troops, veterans or military families, IAVA took a position either in support of, or in opposition to its passage. The letter grades were derived, using the scales below, from the percentage of times that each legislator’s vote matched the official IAVA stance.

Fucking hypocrite..

26. George W. Bush lost the WAR and GBS knows that conservatives politicians and their supporters are TROOP HATERS!! spews:

No Republican, any where, truly supports the troops. They only support their ideological failure in chief, George W. Bush.

Repubicans have no HONEST ideas, no plans for victory, in Iraq, to plan for victory in the War on Terro, no plans for the economy, global warming or anything of importance.

Republicans of today are the worst examples of America’s citizens since the 4th of July, 1776!

Scum!

Afraid of another rake hitting you in the face???

Yeah, if you support the troops joint he military!!

All you need is a GED. You qualify
You can even be a felon now. So you qualify
Under age 42. Again, you qualify

So, why aren’t you fightin’ them over there so you don’t have to fight them over here?!?!?

Won’t you do that for your daughter??

Of course not. Your the CUNT of a father who left his daughter with an addicted crack whore for a parent.

You don’t have an ounce of manhood in you. That must be because your a conservative pussy.

Ok, GBS – Who derived the “official IAVA stance?
Committee of one, Paul Rieckoff? who knows?

We do know that the would be John Kerry is ambitious..Just like the real deal. All he needs now is a wealthy heiress to marry, and a presidential election to lose.

The american people can see who supports the troops and who doesn’t. Just ask the troops

Troop Hater @ 31:

I know it sucks when the facts prove, yet again, that for Republicans your last bastion of patriotism is crumbling beneath your feet.

You attack Iraq Combat Veterans the same way you attack other American Combat Veterans who simply tell the truth in a non-partisan fashion. If it demonstrates your lack of support of the troops you attack them.

The IAVA is far more than a “committee of one.” Who do you think knows what’s best for our troops, Iraqi Combat Veterans or some PUSSY like you?

37. I wish to be the modern day John Kerry, Paul Reichoff says spews:

@36
You must want to be just like John Kerry as well.
Why did Optruth and IAVA almost exclusively support Democrat candidates? hmmmmm?
All I need to know is that Al Qaeda and terrorists cheered when you wus Democrats won congress…..

Our enemies love you. How does that scan cookie!
Our troops know where their support lies, and it ain’t with the party of surrender and defeat, the Democrat party.

@ 37:

Hmmmmm . . . there are three reasons why they supported Democrats during a time of war and they are because Democrts:

A) Support the troops.
B) Support the troops.
C) Support the troops.

I’m more like John Kerry, you must be more like Bush.

I served active military like John Kerry.
You dodged military service like Bush.

I served in combat like John Kerry.
You couldn’t survive a fight to the death with another man.

I’m a patriot like John Kerry.
You support Bush who does business with the bin Laden family.

I’m a man like John Kerry.
You’re whimp like Bush.

You’re God Damned right I’m like John Kerry and proud of it.

You cunt.

39. George W. Bush lost the WAR and GBS knows that conservatives politicians and their supporters are TROOP HATERS!! spews:

Instead of checking out what positions the IAVA took on military, veterans and military family issues, you only go out of your way to attack the military, veterans and their families.

But you’re showing your true cowardly, surrender monkey colors. Because it’s now documented that Republcians don’t support military issues, you take the position that IAVA combat veterans are going to take positions that would have a negative impact on soldiers.

You’re such a fucking coward!!

Man up, pussy and take RESPONSIBILITY for your fucking vote to support TROOP HATERS.

Cock.
