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.

What about Shiers, Monson and Sytman on the same show as a team? The Priss, The Prig, and The Prick! This morning Sytman admitted to growing up on Mercer Island. Ths explains his insufferable air of superiority. The twerp probably doesn't even know that his precious, pampered upbringing has imbued him with this obnoxious trait.


If others are interested, next Thursday at Pratt Park there will be a community gathering against violence sponsored by Robert Jeffries of New Hope Baptist Church. For those who do not know him, Dr. Jeffries is a phenomenal civil rights leader with a commitment to raising raising the economic standing of poor people. he is a very koving speaker.

Details are at SeattleJew


Finally, violence will be over. why didn't we have a meeting about it years ago?


Chuck this link is for you. If you've heard of Blackstone (the biggest private equity company who basically buy and sell other companies for a profit) or even if you haven't, this is a pretty interesting read vis a vis corporate (non) tax payments:

If these tax savings were paid as a lump sum this year, the partners would get about $751 million, which is $198 million more than the taxes the partners will pay on the $3.7 billion of good will.

Basically, the company investors will make 3.7 billion on their IPO (good will shares) and over the next 15 years they will actually MAKE $553 million in taxes due to the loophole.

Now I don't know about you but I don't get those kids of loopholes for my business, and even though I employ a lot fewer people and have much less revenue, I actually have to PAY taxes.


Why pay attention to a no ratings dork like Bryan Suits? I forgot he existed.


Can someone tell me how Bryan Suits survives? He is so fucking dry and boring. Don't bad ratings mean anything? He has been in the dumpster for years now. Don't Fisher suits have the nerve to fire him? They sure were quick to fire April Zapata and Joe Furia.


It's posts like this one, Mr. Hood, that keep me coming back to this site. You're funny and I always learn something. Keep listening so I won't have to.


Frank: please stop already about how large your "bottom" is. 'kay?

I always figured Frank had a fat ass. Now I know. . .

Love your column today. Laughed all the way through it. When Billo was on ??? with James Carville, you could see and hear the deferance Billo had for the truth-telling and intellect of Carville. His demeanor was quite subdued.

As for Hitchens, I have the book but haven't read it yet. Hitchens is a puzzle to me. Perhaps the driest wit I've heard. I think I'd serve him up in the middle of potato salad myself. Perhaps one teased with a little gin.

"U.S. is building database on Iraqis" Weren't most of the 9-11 attackers Saudis? Just askin' . . .


Michael, didn't you used to have a spell checker that underlined incorrectly spelled words? As in "deference?" I think you should get one, dear. :)


It depends on whether or not Hitchens was sober when he wrote that book.....


You mean Hitchens is sometimes sober?


Just read it. You are right, it sucks.
Flat tax anyone?


How would that solve the tax issue regarding corporations?


Sorry, chucks. I jumped the gun here. Your flat tax sounds good relative to this article.

cowpot: what do you think of a flat tax. There was a time I thought maybe okay but I still don't see how it captures this money. chucks, a flat tax doesn't automatically eliminate capital gains and estate taxes etc. all at different rates and levels. At least, that's the way I understand it.

Kind of like the debate in WA state about income tax vs. sales tax. They won't promise to eliminate the sales tax, just reduce it. Nobody is going for that even though I've come around and support an income tax mostly because I can deduct it from the Fed tax.

AFTER you have read the book 'god is not great' you may have a little more understanding of the man and the depth of his own struggles.
a very compelling read as our his other books. try the ones on mother teresa or henry kissenger. i've been waiting for the medved vs hitchens meet up and will have to pod it.
regarding bryan suits, the fact that he packed on a few pounds after coming back from Iraq doesn't take away from the fact that he is a damn funny dude and when he is on target can provide great entertainment.


I find you pretentious, putsie. Always trying to prove your intellect. Well, keep trying.

hey, i'm not the one who use to assign 'grades' to different posts as some wannabe professorial type.
at least Audioslave cured you of that.


"cured" - what does that mean? Again, I don't know what you are talking about.

No wonder you and nevetS have a bond. You both talk in riddles. Except he is more charming.

You remind me of Jim Bohannon. Another blabber who loves to hear himself talk. Always trying to impress people with his intellect. I can listen to him for about as long as I can exchange with you. A matter of minutes.
