auntie jim is working on a possible bio of aviation pioneer Charlie McAllister. .
Mar 17 auntie jim commented on Governor Inslee Talks (Briefly) About Seattle's Plan to Host Shell's Arctic Drilling Rigs.
So you're irritated with the governor? He's actually trying to do something serious about carbon emissions rather than move them around. I know it's a lot more work, but why don't you go after some actual bad guys, Like the state senate Republicans?
Mar 15 auntie jim commented on I, Anonymous.
I have the same problem but my neighbor's 36+ cats and kittens seem to have dwindled to maybe six or seven. Thank you to the coyotes or whatever reduced the population.
Mar 6 auntie jim commented on Why You Should Give a Fuck About the Port of Seattle's Decision to Help Destroy the Planet.
For petesake yes, pay attention to the port because it's mostly run for the convenience of big money out-of-state corporate special interests. We need to take our ports back.
Meanwhile, to slow global warming, the governor has a better idea (carbon tax) and even the stinking Republicans want to raise the gas tax a little. (regressive) They aren't drilling when they have their equipment parked here. Thanks for drawing attention to the port.
Mar 5 auntie jim commented on Republican State Senator Caves to Pressure, Apologizes for Clueless Racial Comments.
I'm from Yakima, and racist attitudes were prevalent among white people in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. It seems little has changed. I would like to see the Democratic party put serious resources into getting out the youth and minority vote over there.
Dec 19, 2014 auntie jim commented on Self-Checkout Machines and American Ideology: Be the Boss of You!.
Two teenage girls I picked up hitch hiking out here said they like to use the machines to rob the store somehow LOL.
Dec 13, 2014 auntie jim commented on Is This Trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road the Greatest Trailer Ever Made?.
Ick, how could they make pretty Mr Hoult look so gross? Dumber than dirt + I hate trailers that go boom.
Dec 10, 2014 auntie jim commented on Seven Arrested After Yesterday's Large and Peaceful Protest Against Police Brutality.
If you are blocking an ambulance carrying a critical patient to life-or-death hospital treatment then you should be arrested and jailed. Since such situations are not predictable with any precision, there are laws that forbid blocking traffic, and persons who refuse to clear the right of way can be charged with a crime. Protesters have no right to get attention by blocking the streets without a parade permit.
Nov 29, 2014 auntie jim commented on Hey, You Know Those Fragrances Stores Use to Lure You Inside?.
For years I have felt like I was allergic to the stores. I walk in the super market and suddenly experience sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, itchy ears, and coughing. They're doing this on purpose?
Nov 16, 2014 auntie jim commented on If You Didn't Vote, Why?.
I remember those voting machines, in the general election, there used to be a lever at the top of each column with a donkey or an elephant so you could vote for all the candidates from your favorite party even if you were illiterate. Absentee ballots had a similar feature on a big sheet of paper, bigger than modern newspaper pages. I was 18 when the 26th amendment was ratified and the voting age was changed to 18 from 21 and I've never missed a single even year election.
I can see how life threatening illness or injury, loss of ones home or other personal tragedy could cause someone to miss an election, but mostly what I see here are excuses for being lazy, selfish, and STUPID. Why were there two Republican scoundrels on the ballot in Yakima 4th district? Because not enough sane people bothered to send in their primary ballot. Why did the most corrupt and evil caucus in the history of the US house of representatives get even more power? Reality voters stayed home. America doesn't need excuses, it needs Democrats to stick with it and vote every time.
Oct 17, 2014 auntie jim commented on Absolut Phoney: A Giant Conglomerate Is Bringing Its "Local" Liquor to Ballard.
In blind taste tests subjects prefer budget vodka and Seagram's Gin over the expensive alternatives like grey goose and Bombay.
