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.

and now we find out that the 'relative' who went over and 'threatened' ms. bell evidently was the 14 year old sister of the 5 year old boy. some threat...
i agree with you what sharkansky -and family- did was correct and proportional. in this day and age of DHS, do you really want it to be publicly out there that you are some kind of child beater? most parents would challange that allegation and i would be surprised at those that didn't.


hey duff
"297 Posts?...I dunno; that's a lot!"

are you really gonna give andrew full credit for his posts?


when did she say Stefan was a child beater? She said they let the kid run around the restaurant rather than making him sit down and mind.


Yes, I did not read that either. Sounds like bad parenting, however.


here is what she put out:
" Quite simply, the kid is Damian from the Omen. Might as well be a monkey. The kid did everything except reach in his pants and throw feces on the wall. His parents just allowed it, which said to me:
A.) Parents allow it all the time
B.) Parents beat him all the time (except in public)"

Sounds more like a hatchet job there ph(J)...err, Coiler.


Joanie, also I question the protrayal of this as a powerful guy crushing a little waitress. Sometimes the little guy has the edge. Look what then-little-known Drudge did to Clinton by posting the blue dress story. Look what Burkett (Rather's fake document source) almost did to Bush. Look what Oswald did to Kennedy. Sometimes a big man makes a big target.


Well, if you say the Sharkansky's beat their kid, then so be it. Plus he sounds like a vindictive prick.


oops didn't mean to post the same thing twice...sorry


ph(J)...err coiler
wrong again. no one stands by the statement. ms. bell has recanted -meaning she takes it back and that it never ever happened. just a lie. a lie that backfired. kind of sad actually.


Lying, something Sparky has been trying out a lot lately. Could she be getting tips from the Dragon Meister himself, D&D?


Puget Sound is saying Steffan beats his children? Now Steffan will be back to threaten Puget Sound. Will this never end?


"here is what she put out:

you really do have a short attention span, Lee-ann.


A little-noted post by 'Micheal' at 9:45, August 27 may hold the key. He notes that it is 'surreal' that the incident involved 'Stephan' getting 'Stephany' fired. What are the chances that the unusual spelling would be replicated in both names? Based on data from Intellius.com, I calculate it at 1 chance in 3^18 (three to the 18th power). This vitually proves that it was a set-up from the get-go, just like I said.


Sometimes a big man makes a big target.

Sometimes a stupid man shoots himself in the foot.

Stefan Sharkansky's reputation as a bad parent, a poor tipper, and a vicious bully has reached the news pages of The Stranger: his response was to post another Hello, I'm Stefan Sharkansky, waitress slayer, and you are? post on Sound Politics. A regular reader ventured that perhaps they'd heard enough about the waitress: Stefan deleted a dissenting comment and self-righteously said that this is now all about the publicity his poor behavior is receiving...

"So 'Justin' by your post, am I to read that one shouldn't take a physically/mentally-challenged person into a restaurant if they are likely to 'act up'? Are they to be banned from public eating places if they can't be 'totally controlled'? Children are a part of our society - should they be taught to behave ABSOLUTELY; do they sometimes go beyond CERTAINLY. You sound like such a tolerant person, much like Mother Teresa -NOT!"



Better read what I wrote again--at no point do I say that, and your misinterpretation is, frankly, obfuscation.

And a little hysterical.

Way to get off track, bud'.


You seem very immature in your approach to this whole issue. Your lack of real life experience is evident.
It's a simple matter of actions & consequences.
The waitress was probably yucking it up pretty good when this first came out. You losers from the far-left used her like a pawn to attack Stefan & Irene.
None of you apparently thought of the potential consequences....which is typical of the fringe lunatic Left.
You are incapable of thinking about consequences....and will use & sacrifice some misguided waitress as long as it serves your agenda.
How old are you Andrew? Under 21??
I'll bet you go to Evergreen...or are in some other program where they teach you the end justifies any means.
Grow up Andrew.
