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.

Laura Ingraham is on KVI, 3p-6p


Yeah, I heard Frank Shiers sniveling about this yesterday. He and others like him don't want anything to interfere or challenge their belief in fairy tales.

Lets see, on one side you have the scientific community (which as a higher percentage of atheists than the general public). On the other side, you have goofballs like Shiers or BillO...


The Mesiah, Obama is one of them religionist, shitting that crap right in to the brains of his daughters. Not only is Joe Biden a religionist, he is a freaking Catholic. That is about as close to the worst of religionist as a believer in fairy tales can get besides Muslims and Seventh Day Adventist's. Al Gore is a Global Warmingist (though I think he is just in it for the money).
When did atheism become a religion that needed a sign in the capital, anyway?


Why all of the HATE towards people with faith? Are you all that uncomfortable with your own beliefs that you have to trash others?

The War on Christmas is really just a small battle in the War on Christianity.

Im an atheist, but this so silly, these guys are just as pathetic as BillO. Christmas is for kids, not adults, get the fuck over it.

The Beast Rabban (formerly Gay Gary)

I support what the Freedom from Religion Foundation is doing. I'm tired of having Christmas shoved up my urethra.


I'm proud of you Gary.
I'm sure you never accept gifts, listen to Christmas music, take the 25th as a holiday, go to Christmas parties, eat Christmas candy, decorate for the holidays or feel any extra warmth towards the rest of humanity during that time of year :)

The Beast Rabban (formerly Gay Gary)

I'm sure you never accept gifts

I act with social grace; when offered a gift I accept it.

listen to Christmas music,

correct, I do not

take the 25th as a holiday

school is closed on the 25th, that's not my choice

go to Christmas parties,

correct, I do not

eat Christmas candy,

I don't eat candy generally. It's bad for you.

decorate for the holidays

correct, yet again

or feel any extra warmth towards the rest of humanity during that time of year

correct once more, I have just as much disdain for humanity in general as always

(is it so hard to believe that there are actual -gasp- non-Christians here in Americker?)


No, not since I happen to be one of them myself.

The Beast Rabban (formerly Gay Gary)

Then how hard is it to believe that - unlike you - some non-Christians do not observe "commercial Christmas"? Some of us find the lights and music, etc., absolutely nauseating. They make we want to puke.


In a small southern town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me. The three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets.

Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets.

She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "You darn Yankees never do read the Bible!"

I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled thru some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said "See, it says right here, 'The three wise man came from afar.'"


It's not for all the wrong reasons. This is a very right reason.

The Beast Rabban (formerly Gay Gary)

I assured her that I did ...

She'd probably heard about your problem providing source citations for your dubious stats (I believe your standard rebut when asked is "this conversation no longer interests me", right?) so didn't believe you. Just a guess, sweetie.

    • 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.
