A place for Canadians.

Eastern Washington should be split off and merged into Idaho. They would be happier (they vote for Republicans, they want Republican representation), we would be happier (God, what horrible, inbred scum they are -- oh, I mean we could raise taxes to pay for core services), and it wouldn't affect the Senate.

Dec 3, 2013 Gus commented on The Morning News: Oh God, I Have to Blog About Football, a Game I Don't Even Understand.
What's wrong with Bob Dylan's hat? I think it's an awesome hat -- a traditional, wide-brimmed Croat hatin' hat.

Although, to be fair to the Croats, the Serbs are also like Nazis.
Nov 19, 2013 Gus commented on Like It Or Not, the Internet Is Changing Our Language.
"House Republicans voted against federal disaster aid for Hurricane Sandy because fuck you." By far the best use of prepositional-because (or is this a different use of because).
Oct 4, 2013 Gus commented on Serving Drinks/Food/Beef Jerky in Mason Jars: Allow or Disallow?.
I was a little disappointed when one of my favorite pubs stopped serving beer in Mason jars. But, damned if glasses aren't a whole lot better to drink out of. Alas, the glasses seem to be sponsored by Bud Light or something.
Oct 1, 2013 Gus commented on Hey, Teabaggers: Thanks for Teaching a Very Important Civics Lesson to 8th Grade Students at Everett's St. Mary Magdalen School.
The students will learn an important lesson: government never works.

They will then apply this lesson by voting for Republicans, who are clearly right with their message that government never works.
Aug 23, 2013 Gus commented on NPR Says It Will Continue to Refer to Chelsea Manning as "He" Until Her Gender Is "Actually Physically" Changed.
I could see NPR balking on zir/zim or one of the novelty pronouns, but shouldn't the basic "I'll refer to you by whatever pronoun you like, so long as you don't make me learn new grammar" rule apply?
Aug 5, 2013 Gus commented on Good-bye, Moon Temple, Hello... Wait, What? Another Corporate Drug Store? Arggghhhh..
Another drug store? In Wallingford? Sigh.

Fremont needs a drug store, Wallingford has plenty.
Jul 17, 2013 Gus commented on If Somebody Can't Get to Bellevue by Car, They Shouldn't Be Coming at All.
The people who cannot leave Bellevue by train shouldn't be leaving at all.

Maybe we can trick them into building a big wall to keep everyone else out, and then we can use it to keep them in.
Jul 9, 2013 Gus commented on Where Should This Nice Slog Reader Get Some Delicious Celebratory Crab?.
You can probably get crabs from some of the folks along Aurora Ave...
Jun 29, 2013 Gus commented on Glendale Inserts Poison Pill in Coyotes Deal, Buyers Call It a "Deal Breaker".
Unless the rest of the state is going to help fund this team, they shouldn't be able to root for it. Maybe name the new team the Seattle "Fuck You Mouthbreathing Rural Assholes Just Go To Fucking Idaho Already".

I'd buy a jersey with that on it.
