right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

My, such sour grapes, gollum. Bet your face is all pinched up when you write about me, too.

Here's a real expert for you, gollum, and KS: The Economy according to Reich Of course, you probably won't watch it because he, like me, is smarter than you and you don't like that. But he puts it very, very simply for, well, people like yo

For Queen, it's YouTube.

Perry: A couple of good reads on Inept Texas Governor Rick Perry Calls Himself A "Miracle Man"

The 'Texas Miracle' Is A Mirage

Of course, these two article spew facts rather than the emotional garbage which comes out of the mouth of Savage. Savage is easier, I admit.

What a scumbag. The WSJ has discovered Eric Cantor bets against US Treasury Bonds and THEN plays chicken with the debt ceiling, so when they lose value he makes money. So the Treasury Bonds in the Social Security Trust Fund (YOUR MONEY) loses value due to his game of chicken, he makes a bundle.

If what Ziad says post is true, Cantor needs to go.

Another example of Global Warming. Someone call Olby at Current TV so we can get a full report on this.

Wait, is the EZ-Pass for toll roads saving theenvironment. According to this guy it is.


The move to electronic tolling has also helped the environment, argues Frank McCartney, president of the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, because there are fewer cars decelerating, accelerating and idling on the roads.

So according to the Supreme Court, kids can buy extremely violent video games, because it is protected speech....but a flash of Janet Jackson's nipple is cause for hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. One of the dissenting opinions came from Justice Stephens, who pointed out that if the video game allows the player to rape and then mutilate a woman, if she is clothed, the kids can buy it. If she is naked, then it goes on the "adults only" shelf..... This country is messed up.

Violence and sex Sparky. Two different things.

"Unlike depictions of "sexual conduct," Scalia said, there is no tradition in the United States of restricting children's access to depictions of violence, pointing out the violence in the original depiction of many popular children's fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella and Snow White"

Well said and correctly ruled on.

Hansel and Gretel vs. snuff games.

Right.

chucks

This has never been an issue in my house as those games were never allowed. I am pretty anal about letting games promoting violence against women or other innocents in my house.
I don't know that this should be a government issue. Probably not. Just so long as the government does not step on my parental rights to restrict the crap to which my kids are exposed.
We still have the right to promote boycotts against company's that produce and distribute the garbage. Certainly have the right to not spend our own money on those company's.

"snuff games". How about Bambi's mom getting killed at the end of the book. Now thats "Snuff". What we need is let Parents raise their children. Not the courts. Or for that matter old maids who think they know better.

If Palin was aware of this background, don't you think we would have heard it from her by now.

Watch the haters parade for the next number of news cycles if you like, but I'm saying it's OUTSTANDING to see the Leadership Courage demonstrated by our Prez, shining in integrity. Ok, I'm almost ready to write a check...

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).

      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
