right-wing blogs we like

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.

It's not our business why Rachel was walking alone late at night without an escort. But I sure wouldn't do that. And it doesn't matter who of which nationality committed the crime. It's a crime! However, there is a problem with illegals in this sanctuary state that gives illegals driver's licenses, free education and health care and free passes for crime since they are not citizens! (What about the guy who raped the Edmonds woman? Sent back 5 times and keeps returning!!)This is going to be one of the places all those illegals go when they can no longer stay in all those states passing anti- illegal immigrant laws. Washington needs to do something about that!!!


Her California attackers were ethnic Armenians that were caught.

Check out the jail roster and see how many inmates have foreign names. There is a program called SCAAP State Criminal Alien Assistance Program. This money comes from the Federal Government. $250,000,000.00 is available for jails and Sheriffs departments for foreign inmates incarcerated for a 72 hour period. The money a County or city gets back from SCAAP is nothing compared to what us tax payers pay in taxes to hold them in jail cells. There are many ways the illegals are stealing from us.


Legal immigrants have foreign names too, you racist xenophobe. Illegals help make produce and new housing affordable, something a ho-ho stuffing apartment dweller like you probably doesn't realize.


These are folks that appear to be new posters to this site. Why don't you try being a bit nicer to them Andrew and more welcoming. Your hideous attacks are getting old.


"I'm sure Lake Forest Park is still a quite safe neighborhood. I don't think Suit's wife was foolish in assuming she'd be ok in taking a short walk by the brightly lit school and back to the house"

The outcome proves your assumption is ***wrong***.

She WAS foolish to think she could walk alone late at night and not be at risk for an attack. She's lucky it didn't end up worse than it did.


I think Andrew has way too much time on his hands. Brian Suits has defended his right to say stupid things. If it were his wife,(Andrews) He might have a different attitude!


Ya, I sit around for hours and hours thinking out my short little posts.

As I said before, if my wife did this I would follow her. I would not lay at home in bed while she was walking out alone. Frankly I don't understand how Bryan sat idly by while his wife was out walking alone (assuming these are the facts of the matter).


a rare, fluke exception to the rule of Lake Forest Park's very safe record does NOT prove me wrong. Whether or not a neighborhood is safe or not is based on statistical proof, not extreme incidents, at either end of the scale. If Bill Gates decided to hand out $10,000 checks one day of his life in Lake Forest Park and never do it there again, you couldn't assume the streets wer paved with gold in the neighborhood. It is possible that these two scumbags are the first in a new trend of criminal illegals invading Lake Forest Park , the tip of the spear, if you will. Even if that were true, you couldn't blame the person who thought it would be safe to take the short, latenight walk based on the excellent statistical evidence of safety and security up to that point. Your post is not logical.
