Catalina Vel-DuRay is finally back up north.
8:40 PM yesterday Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Capitol Hill Woman Finds Threatening, Anti-Abortion Message on Her Windshield.
Seattle has always had a creepy religious/white supremacist underbelly. I think it was worse in the seventies. You'd open a book in the library and find a flier about Jews or a picture of an abortion or something.
6:11 AM yesterday Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on The Morning News: Seattle Home Prices Continue Climbing, WA Republican Senator Wants Seattle to Become Its Own County.
Auburn would literally not exist without Seattle, and if were a part of a county without Seattle's wealth, it's many, many social problems would be much worse.

Republicans are dumb.
Apr 26 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Why Does This House Cost $1,000,000?.
When houses on Beacon Hill start selling for a million, I am officially out of here. I'll buy me a little mobile home down in Palm Springs and live out my days on the proceeds frim chez Vel-DuRay
Apr 26 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Mayor Ed Murray's Attorney Wants Sanctions Against His Accuser's Lawyer.
Phoebe dear, aren't you being a little overly distraught? I really don't care either way what happens to Murray. We'll have the primary, and then the election in the fall. It will sort itself out.
Apr 26 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Judge Halts Trump's Order Blocking Federal Funding for Sanctuary Cities.
Theodore dear, he said in his Twitter "we will not stand for it. watch!", so I'm pretty sure it's war with Canada, I'm getting out my snood and dusting off my USO uniform just in case. We'll probably have a lot of soldiers here who will want someone to dance with them, and I must do my duty.
Apr 26 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Judge Halts Trump's Order Blocking Federal Funding for Sanctuary Cities.
President Hair Plugs can't focus on who he's angry at. His Twitter feed is a mess. Last I checked, we are apparently considering war with Canada over some dairy issues. That will play well int he hee-haw states.
Apr 25 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Voices from the Seattle March for Science Protest.
Thank you, dears. It was one of the longest courtships in modern history, but all it took was a visit to the wedding license office and a trip to Sears to get the rings, and there we were!
Apr 23 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on Voices from the Seattle March for Science Protest.
I would have loved to have been there also, but I was down in Las Vegas. Mr. Vel-DuRay and I decided to finally make an honest woman out of me after all of these years.
Apr 22 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on On the Blabbermouth Podcast: A Liberal Awakening in Kansas and a World of Hurt.
Sorry dears, but you completely missed the boat on the airline discussion. Most of the people in first class are there because of loyalty points. It has almost nothing to do with "class".

If you want to go after people because of class, go after the uber wealthy who never go near a commercial carrier.
Apr 22 Catalina Vel-DuRay commented on The Morning News: Mayor Murray All of a Sudden Wants to Tax the Rich, Boeing Killing Good Jobs to Keep Shareholders Happy.
I grew up in Iowa. Iowa has a low sales tax, low property taxes, and an Income Tax. You file your Iowa taxes, and deduct it from your federal tax. It's simple, easy, and better than our stupid way of estimating sales tax here. But the idiot fringe in our state will always want to continue to subsidize the wealthy because they are afraid of an income tax.
