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.

Nothing gets by Bla'm who I have on good authority has never paid for the rust proof undercoating when purchasing a vehicle.

Pete

Rust proof undercoating has value (at least, in certain parts of the country.) Electronic processing that costs the event promoter nothing once the software is installed - as opposed to the wages that used to be paid to real live people to process ticket sales - add no value to the consumer and cost the promoter far less. Ticket surcharges like this, of the type pioneered by TicketMonster, are a ripoff, pure and simple. And they get away with it because they usually have a monopoly on tickets for a given event.

Chucks

The undercoating also assists in the reduction of road and tire noise, thus enhancing the enjoyment in ownership in your new car.
It makes the drive more pleasant when going to the box office to purchase your tickets in person, rather than paying the Paul Allen mafia ticket fee racket charge.

Tony

Undercoating and spray-on type rust proofing insulates the metal from moisture and oxygen by covering it with a protective coating.

The two main disadvantages of that method are that it's impossible to cover every area on the vehicle with and often the areas that are most prone to corrosion are left uncoated. Also, it's effective only as long as the protective surface is not damaged. In reality, in the areas where damage occurs, no matter how small, rusting will occur.

blathering michael

I am tight as the paper on the wall, and I'd pay to have rust-proof undercoating sprayed on Michelle Bachman or Chris Christie, (I believe Romney has already been sprayed) but this post was about KUOW, Paul Allen mafia ticket fee racket charges, Stephen Tobolowsky, today's gently tedious Weekday live show.

Puget Sound Blathers

Ticket-'slave'-Master has folks right where they want you, by the 'handling fees' and I hate 'em.

I will say that 'Gently Tedious' sounds like the way to spend a pleasant afternoon in the Great Northwest.

Chucks

OK Michael, but as a guy that has made part of his living the last 20 years, I thought I did a good job working back to the subject at hand while appreciating the real value of undercoating.

Tony

I have to imagine that Christ Chrissy would find significant value in the rust-proof undercoating, as one as to imagine there are abnormal levels of moisture in that undercarriage.

    • 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).
