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.

I just checked the refer and at our little store it is selling for $15.99 a pound! And I put it on the top of a very hot stove, salt and pepper really well, then finish if off with a little water and a lid.

Oh no! I hear you from here but it's good. I like simple.

Sure, I'd love king but sockeye is what they sell.

Also, one year I bought three Copper River whole salmon from Central Market, cut it up and froze it. Did my best to do it fast and air tight. I ended throwing most of it out. Last time I throw money away like that. Rather eat the store frozen when fresh is not available.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

I love my omega 3s!


This is a testament to a failed blog on talk radio who has to resort to restaurant reviews because he couldn't make anything he said politically relevant.

Luckily...he has his two faithful posters still here...the only two who have ever kept this dreck going: joanie, sparky.


$16.00 a lb for sockeye? A little steep if you ask me.


Can you link your spectacular blog on anything so we can reap your wisdom? We like the Sunday diversion - it's better than the Sunday funnies.

Ask Andy

What's failed is talk radio.


We sold an RV to a guy that lives in Frazier River, BC last week. When he came down to pick it up, he brought 50 lbs of fresh salmon plus some smoked for us to share. Made for a great July 4 Bar BQ.
Free salmon is almost extinct. We tried some of that farmed Atlantic stuff once. Had to darn near starve the cat to get him to eat it. That stuff is flavor free.


Farmed salmon is higher in PCBs, and they give it special food with dye in it so they will have the familiar red flesh color that people want.



Stay away from farm-raised salmon - mercury has been found in detectable amount. Wild Salmon is more expensive, but better for you - no detectable heavy metals. I try to have salmon at least once/week.


Oh my goodness!!!
Sparky and KS had the same thought at the same time. I think the jinx, you owe me a Pepsi thing I hear from my Grandbrats fits here.
Shhhh!! Do not tell joanie, her head will 'spload. This will be our little secret.
And thanks to both of you. No more of that farm raised stuff in my house.


Sorry, chucks. The same thought struck me as soon as I read your post. They say you aren't supposed to eat it very often (think I heard once a week maybe?) because it is actually dangerous.

NY Times did an investigation of restaurants (in NY City of course) and found that out of about seven restaurants advertising wild salmon only one was actually wild. The others all farmed. These were expensive and highly regarded restaurants.

We live in an area where we can still get it but who knows for how long. We talk a lot about global warming but I think food that lacks nutrition is going to be the death of us first!

Also, if you listened to left-wing radio, you'd probably have known this. (insert happy face)

(You know I had to add that)


And chucks, glad you're still selling RVs.


Can you link your spectacular blog on anything so we can reap your wisdom? We like the Sunday diversion - it's better than the Sunday funnies.

Nope! :) I don't do a blog (I am not so pompous!). I just like to laugh at blogs that fail when they are pompous at the get-go. (This one sure was!)


Pdtuhfofman how was your trip down "south"?

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.
