Woman, Control Yourself

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (3 Responds)

When I saw the title “Eight bad reasons to have sex”, I had a feeling it was more like “Eight bad reasons for women to have sex”. I was right. As I’m sure you’re well aware, there are many good reasons to have sex. In fact, sometimes you don’t need any reason at all — [...]

Banksy Hits New Orleans

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (4 Responds)

Teh kid introduced us to Banksy a few years back. The anonymous artist inspired him to do a lot of large pieces. I just saw in the Arts Briefly column mention of his recent New Orleans murals. BoingBoing has great photos and links.

Anniversary? What anniversary?

Great minds think alike (and concurrently) tonight, so rather than push CC’s post down the page, I’m linking to mine from the storage unit. I’m still editing it, but I wanted to get the rant up, so see whatcha think so far.

Can We Not Praise Michelle Obama

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (5 Responds)

…for her feminism without throwing in statements that have long made feminists want to scream when hearing them? Michelle Obama combines traditional values with progressive ones. Isn’t that the kind of equality women want? Kind of equality? I didn’t realize that there is more than one kind. Assuming there is though, I want the kind [...]

The one good thing…

Posted by Anntichrist S Coulter under Uncategorized (8 Responds)

…to come out of the Denver convention: Billmon is back! Nope, sorry, still not thrilled by anything else I’ve seen thus far, even on PBS. Rather nauseated, frankly. Even the “Big Dog” is capable of lying or “acting” better than that. And don’t get me started on Biden. Can’t even talk about Hillary right now, [...]

Tough times for some of Seattle’s independent bookstores

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (6 Responds)

MaryAnne Gwinn had contacted Dan a while back about why we closed Jackson Street Books for her article about recent departures of other bookstores. It ran today. We’re glad she mentioned Toure Apparel. Maybe that parking lot will get some attention now.

Let’s Talk

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (5 Responds)

When did it become a sin for progressives to question the decisions/positions of their own candidates? Why is it suddenly okay to tell those of us who have questions that we need to be quiet, or to, as someone over at Jaye’s place put it a few weeks back, “get in line” until the election [...]

Ho-leeeee SHIT!!!

Posted by Anntichrist S Coulter under Uncategorized (7 Responds)

Amazingly enough, this isn’t about the mind-bogglingly hypocritical IDIOCY of Obama wanting Joe Dunderhead Biden for veep, I’ll leave that for cooler heads to dissect. Okay, so after wrangling/neutering 85 fucking cats, too many bites & scratches to count, a truck that’s added at least 5,000 miles over the past 3 years, and the aforementioned [...]

Meet Robert (Rev. Helen’s son) and Powder The Psycho-Pussy……brought to you after this long wait caused by a pharmaceutical phuck-up, thanks to SOME REALLY SHITTY EXCUSES FOR PHARMACISTS.And, of course, as always, turns out that there aren’t 10-12 cats left over from the old man moving out of that red shotgun behind the post office [...]

BBC News video August 6th (2 days before Russian involvment) FOX “News” video of 12 year old California girl who was visiting her Ossetian grandmother when the Georgians attacked. Any bets that some one at that San Francisco affiliate didn’t get their ass chewed, or fired, for allowing something that didn’t support the Neo-Con Party [...]

Dispatches from Hempfest

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (7 Responds)

Saturday was a scorcher in Seattle, 97 at least, and hotter than that in the sun in an over-crowded beach front park. This was the most crowded I’ve ever seen a Hempfest. If 150,000 came over the two days last year, this year they all came on Saturday. The strangest vibe was in the air, [...]

Arming Teachers

Posted by Realist under Uncategorized (27 Responds)

This is literally happening just a few short miles from the town where I went to elementary and junior high school: When classes start Aug. 25 in the tiny Harrold school district, there will be one distinct difference from years prior: Some of the teachers may have guns. To deter and protect against school shootings, [...]
