Good grief! The infamous “Tent City 3”, run by Seattle’s “Homeless-Industrial Complex” representative SHARE/WHEEL, had to make an “emergency” move. The article I read mentioned that this homeless camp has been in existence for 20 years! Now, if the 60’s radicals who run Seattle tell you that they are working to end homelessness, please do NOT believe them!!
This homeless camp is such an institution that it has had its own insurance! And its administrators complain that no one wants to insure them. Gee, I wonder why that might be?
It seems that the Great Internet Monopoly, AKA Google, has a list of web sites that they have “blacklisted”, to try and bury their content and prevent casual web-surfers from seeing what they deem “dangerous” writings. Herewith, from a Ricochet post, is the Google list of dangerous sites that you should be discouraged from viewing.

Well, RushBabe49 has been proud of being as incendiary as possible here on my personal blog. I must say, I am proud as punch, as a Ricochet Member in good standing, to be in the hallowed company of my Hero, Rush Limbaugh, and Gateway Pundit, Glenn Beck, and LifeNews.
My advice to all my readers is to immediately patronize all the sites listed above, give them favorable comments, and get all your friends to do the same. Also, while you’re at it, Drop Google, and use DuckDuckGo for ALL your Web searches! Let’s do our part to Break the Google Monopoly Today!
To know which way the wind blows. Can you guess from which direction the wind blows at the Diablo overlook?
The much-pampered homeless in Seattle feel that they are entitled to erect their filthy tents on public property anywhere in town. So, when the city “cleans up” their illegal encampment, they just move on. Say, into the public Park nearby.
Remember, in Seattle the vagrants who camp on public property do not have to move when the city cleans up their camp. They are not in any way required to “accept a shelter bed” when the city “Navigation Team” offers one. In fact, the majority of denizens of homeless encampments around town refuse shelter beds when offered. So what does this mean? It means that the city is essentially powerless to save the public parks for the Public. If a homeless person decides to camp out in your neighborhood park, the city is prevented from getting that person off the street.
Who, again, runs Seattle? Evidently, not the city government, but the empowered “homeless” campers. Is this a city in which you would like to live? Not I.
Well, good news for conservatives in Washington State. This little headline made me just grin.
Inslee gets ZERO supporters in latest New Hampshire Primary poll.
Sounds to me like the DemocRATS of New Hampshire are very discerning, and know how much that poseur is worth. Exactly Zero.
And a big Thank You to JK Rowling for writing the novels that captivated me, an old lady. After seeing the first movie in 2001, I was totally hooked on Potter and his world of witches, wizards, spells, and potions. I was thoroughly entranced by the movie, and I thought the casting of the main characters was as perfect as it ever could be. Even today, the first movie is my favorite, and we watch it every so often. Of course, I have all the books, and have read them all dozens of times. I am collecting the illustrated editions, and can hardly wait for Goblet of Fire this October. I am a Pottermore user, and have been sorted into my houses at both Hogwarts (Slytherin) and Ilvermorny (Horned Serpent-see a pattern here?). I have got my wand (pine wood with unicorn tail hair), and Patronus (stoat).
JK Rowling, for me, is just like Dorothy L. Sayers, in creating real people in her characters. Peter Wimsey, Sayers’s aristocrat detective, seemed just like someone you might meet, and if you look closely, you will see elements that Rowling pulled from Sayers in the Harry Potter oeuvre (where else would she have found the name Cattermole, but in “Gaudy Night”?).
Best wishes to all the Potters, and all the Wizarding World!
Rats. Those wily little rodents are much in the news lately, after our President took jabs at Maryland Representative Elijah Cummings who represents Baltimore. It seems that more than one news outlet in that area has done stories, and documentaries describing the rat-infestation problems in Baltimore. It is well-known that rats follow humans wherever they go, or live, and have been since time immemorial (probably since humans settled down in towns and engaged in agriculture). Cities with endemic poverty, like Baltimore, have more rats than other places.
New York City has its own rat problem, in various neighborhoods, says a story in Pravda on the Hudson (hat tip, Prof. Paul Rahe of Hillsdale College), better known as the New York Times.
Los Angeles is also home to an excess of rats, who have brought with them ancient diseases like Typhus, that have not been seen in America in over a century.
Even Austin, Texas has its own rat infestation.
Seattle, which has one of the largest homeless populations in the US, is plagued by new infestations of rats, which like the abundant trash they can find in the homeless camps scattered around the formerly-beautiful city.
And what do all the cities mentioned above have in common? They have been run for decades by, you guessed it, DemocRATS.
