Sigh…Final Photo Challenge…All-time Favorites

I am SO sad that the Photo Challenge by the editors at WordPress is ending.  It gave me something to look forward to each week, and a reason to mine my photos for just the right picture. And it's so difficult to find the all-time favorite.  But, since it has to be done, I did …

By Permission of a Ricochet friend, “Progressive Thought”

Gender is a social construct; there are no differences between the sexes. All men are bad. Race is a social construct; there are no differences between the races. All white people are bad. No culture is better than another. Western Civilization is bad. Diversity of skin color is good. Diversity of thought is bad. Religion …

A couple of miles south of my house, next to a Les Schwab Tire Center, is a small wetland, populated by mostly dead trees.  I have always wondered what that piece of property started out as, and how it got to be the way it is now.  Last week, I took my camera and got …

Part Two: Welcome to 21st-Century Seattle

Just when you think it can't get any weirder, it gets weirder.  Welcome to the city that values homeless people who contribute little to society except dirty needles, trash, and feces on the street; more than it values the companies who provide high-wage jobs to thousands of its tax-paying citizens.

Silver Lake, about two miles south of my house in Everett. I don't think there's any more beautiful …

Politicians Doing Despicable Things

Just this weekend, we get news of the behavior of two political actors, one from each party.  Both of them deserve censure, and one of them needs to be perp-walked, and placed in handcuffs, then brought before a judge to answer for his treasonous acts.  You know all about the "Iran Nuclear Deal", negotiated in …

Amazon Calls Seattle’s Bluff-Three Cheers!

Most of you have heard of the new "Head Tax" Seattle is about to enact to hit business in the city.  They are about to approve charging big companies up to $500 per employee per year, in order to pay for more services for the increasing numbers of homeless people in the city (maybe brought …
