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

Fringe is the "no gun" left, and the "militia men" right. I am far more in the middle than any of you. And "fall back, reorganize & attack" .. maybe when a "Sgt Pussy" here is in charge. Find cover & fight for your life and the lives of your fellow soldiers is more like it. My brother was wounded in Iraq. He didn't have any chance to fall back when his convoy was attacked. He kicked ass and saved another man's life by hauling him to safety under fire. I am lucky my brother is alive today. There is a huge difference between what the military & police do, and running away as TS suggests. Charging only works in video games and movies.

TS ignores my point about teachers being in the line of fire, and also avoids military because he knows they are paid too little. My arguments make absolute sense, you're just afraid of guns because you believe that everyone will kill you with one. Sorry, you're wrong again. You've probably passed thousands upon thousands of concealed weapons on law abiding citizens and you have never even known it, because there was never an issue. If guns were so dangerous in the right hands, you'd be dead by now.. but they aren't and you aren't.

Yes, accidents happen. But so do car accidents on the road, knife accidents in the kitchen, etc. Gun accidents are far more rare, because the vast majority of gun owners know how to respect a firearm.

TS, Andrew, Sgt. Rock, et all. You keep arguing a mute point. It is a waste of time, and I'm going to stop writing about it. Assume you can't ban guns, assault weapons or high capacity magazines. What are your solutions then? You have offered nothing positive to this conversation as of yet. Let's see if you can pony up.

Sinbad

Breaking NEWS!!!
TS is not a he.

Broken One

LOL, I should have guessed. Andrew probably isn't either.

TS

TS ignores my point about teachers being in the line of fire,

I am a teacher. And as for being in the line of fire, we all may be in the line of fire one day and when we least expect it.

I've responded to everything you've put out there. Your tirades are becoming longer, redundant and less interesting. I'm out.

Broken

"Tirades" You are a joke TS. Be out, dodge more questions. I ask you to provide some alternate solutions, get off this line of gun control and you have no interest in even trying to come up with anything! You're just like Andrew. Losers with a one track mind. Uninterested in any points of view but your own narrow minded thinking.

What do they say about teachers? Oh yeah, "Those who can't teach..."

TS

whatever

Walt

President Obama was talking about you today, Broken. He said "name calling is no substitute for debate." Have you visitied Sound Politics? You would fit in perfectly there.

Broken

Yeah, I have been the only poster throwing insults in this forum. People can dish it out, but they can't take it.

I tried to get out of the hot-button part of this debate, and people just want to stick on the button. I ask, why? What is so wrong about discussing alternatives to no guns? What is wrong with talking about what else might have driven these people to become mass murderers? Nothing is wrong with it, except that it takes a brain. There, another insult. Obama ain't my mama!

Gentlemen Rouge

There is nothing at all wrong with regulating certain weapons, magazines or ammunition. It’s not the end of the world and it just may curtail the madness.

Walt

Because we all know the best way to put out a fire is to buy more matches.
And a can of gasoline.

Broken

Well with that logic, I guess we'd never be able to put out oil well fires. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_well_fire

How are you going to stop a criminal with a gun who is coming to kill your family Walt?

Gentlemen Rouge

This scenario occurs in the minds of fearful people.

TS

Haha. Colbert did some funny bits last night on fear. The only ting we have to fear is fear itself and . . .

Very funny.

TS

"ting" - s/b "thing" of course.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • 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).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
