- Did you get any snow? Here are school closures/delays in Washington.

Despite how amazingly think-about-what-you-did that assignment is, i’s total bullshit that his record remains clean, and ideally his punishment would remain in place and he’d have to make his being-a-decent-human presentation and have to write “don’t be a dick” on the blackboard fifty times.

Here’s another view of the brand new ship Macaw Arrow, docking at Port of Olympia on it’s first ever journey, to deliver “frack sand” proppants for fracking North Dakota oil shale.

– I’m not really in the habit of linking to sermons here, or listening to them online, really, but this one really got to me.

The anti-choice movement is up in arms over my play, MOM BABY GOD, and I have a simple message for them: Bring it on. We’re not backing down.

– I’m afraid Goldy was perhaps too irenic to Boeing management here.

    The Seattle Times reports this morning that Officer Marion has volunteered to have the misconduct finding reinstated in his record, to end the controversy over the chief’s action.

    In the “holy shit, I can’t believe they did that” department, some of you stupid humans are blockheads. Really. I’m not making this up. Some of you humans aren’t merely insensitive jerks, you have your heads so far up your asses you don’t know what daylight looks like.

    So, what we have here is, a Navy sailor who has been deployed on an aircraft carrier for FOUR YEARS is finally coming home to his mother and 8-year-old daughter, and the fucking homeowners association had their idiot lawyer send her a letter ordering her to take down the “Welcome Home” sign on her lawn.

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: If I were her, I’d invite these guys to carpet my law with American flags and then dare the neighbors and their idiot lawyer to take them down.

    @6, Even more “irenic”™ — Joe Conason has a commentary in Rasmussen Reports:

    Minimum Truth: The Hollow Argument Against Higher Wages

    …as many as 35 million families will benefit from an increase to $10.10 an hour due to “spillover effects” raising income among workers who already make slightly more than the minimum.


    Raising the minimum wage will also reduce profiteering by large, highly profitable employers, like Wal-Mart and McDonalds, whose workers rely on government benefits — such as the Earned Income Tax Credit and food stamps — to supplement inadequate paychecks.

    @2 & 7:

    Um, irenic is a real word. It’s the process of being a peacemaker. It usually has religious context, so an irenic gesture might be a Catholic trying to understand something from an Anglican Communion point of view. But when I use it, it’s usually a secular meaning of the same. So in this case, I was saying that Goldy swearing at Boeing executives was being too nice to them.

    Switzerland’s Defense ministry is reporting a slight increase in the number of recruits judged unfit for service. Even though they have a draft, the Swiss do have some minimum requirements to serve. One of the reasons, is they don’t want to give military training and an assault rifle to security risks.

    The part of Texas that surprised me building rail transit, was suburban Denton County(in the DFW Metroplex). Dallas itself has built up an impressive light rail network, and it continues to grow, but there have been accusations that it benefits suburban to Downtown commutes at the expense of intracity service. DART is saying that the Oak Cliff streetcar, which is under construction, will be the first of many.

    All this discussion around minimum wage hikes is due to the Obummer economy sucking worse than Ross Perot’s “giant sucking sound”. Obummer promised a robust economy… All we see is a busted economy. Joe BiteME promised up to 500,000 jobs a month with the Obummer economic plan and DUMMOCRETINS running the House and Senate.

    “All in all we’re going to be creating somewhere between 100[,000] and 200,000 jobs next month, I predict,” Biden said, according to a pool report, adding that he “got in trouble” for a job growth prediction last month. “Even some in the White House said, ‘Hey, don’t get ahead of yourself.’ Well, I’m here to tell you, some time in the next couple of months, we’re going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month.”

    The labor participation is the worst it’s been since 1977.

    Yep, you HA DUMMOCRETINS got what you voted for, so now the new norm is “raise the minimum wage”! The Obummer economy has destroyed the great paying American jobs. No wonder Obummer keeps delaying Obummercare with illegal mandates and new totalitarian moves each month.

    Oh look it’s NOT FOX NEWS and it’s a truthful article on Obummercare…

    About two-thirds of Americans who work at small businesses will see health-insurance premiums increase under Obamacare, according to a new federal report.

    The Senate 2014 elections will be very interesting HA DUMMOCRETINS. Very interesting indeed!

    How come few want Obummer to campaign for them in 2014? He’s still in the high numbas for DUMMOCRETIN approval ratings. Gotta be all those scandals that will come to fore when he’s on the campaign trail!

    Now here’s a strange one! So Airheaded Ambassador… Did Daniel Pearl and The WSJ declare jihad on Pakistan? Was Mr Pearl leaving IEDs on the streets? Was he wrong to try and get an interview with a terrorist cuz he was a Jew?

    What about the jihadist idiot who ordered his execution Khaled Shiekh Mohammed? Maybe the Airheaded Ambassador is giving schmucko-lunatic a pass over his “love” of jihadists like KSM and decided to blame Daniel Pearl’s demise on own actions and not of his jihadist killers?

    Why do DUMMOCRETINS always go for the blame game instead of looking at the facts? Blame KSM and his enablers Airheaded Ambassador! Or maybe she’s underhandedly blaming Israel for his demise since Daniel was Jewish! Where does Obummer find these libtard losers? BTW do you libtards remember to whom she married? Figger that out and Puddy rests his case!

    Woman in debunked Obamacare horror story finally speaks … to Fox News

    The subject of the latest debunked Obamacare horror story is finally talking, and of course it’s to Fox News. Julie Boonstra is a Michigan resident with leukemia, and she appeared in an Americans For Prosperity ad against Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Gary Peters, saying that Obamacare made her cancer treatment unaffordable because of out of pocket spending. Subsequent fact checking, though, found that her monthly premium payments were essentially cut in half, and the limits the law imposes on out of pocket expenses means that at worse, she’d break even between those costs and her premium saving. The ad also implied she lost access to her doctor, though fact checking determined that her doctor is included in the plan she picked on the exchange.

    Dayum… ekimgoatcocksucka@22,

    You are as bad as the crazed databaze deala… running to Daily Kooks to “debunk” something… Unfortunately the Kooks forgot her out of pocket expenses rise under Obummercare. The $6,350 isn’t real when you include all her other cancer expenses. Now why would the Kooks not expressly mention that in their article ekimgoatcocksucka? Even the WA Post fact checker Glenn Kessler missed that! Also what happened to “if you like your health plan, you can keep it.”?
