“The new law in Arizona actually allows police officers to pull people over if they look Hispanic.”

UW Socialists Get Their Time on Failblog.org

March 10, 2010

I had no idea when I took this pic that it would be seen all over the blogosphere by 13k+ people. Pretty awesome.

FailBlog’s headline? “Well, at least they tried to fix it.”


“Who’se Schools? Our Schools!”

March 8, 2010

On college campuses all across the nation this past Thursday, student strikes were held to protest against ongoing budget cuts. The protests were organized by the same old usual suspects:  Communists, Socialists, Anarchists, Marxists,  Liberals, hippies, weirdos, crazies…

I know I’m forgetting a group.

Regardless, one of these protests was held at the University of Washington, where the Seattle International Socialist Organization teamed up with the UW Student-Worker Coalition to demonstrate in the middle of the Quad. Now, the Quad usually looks like this in Spring:

On Friday, it looked like this:

Wait, what?

Can we look at that sign on the left a little closer please?

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. The geniuses at socialistworker.org printed up dozens of signs for students to hold that were grammatically incorrect. And they’re still grammatically incorrect even after the students add the “E’s” to them.  (I love the small “e” myself. Fighting back against the conformity of all caps…)

That picture has actually garnered a lot of attention from around the Conservative blogosphere (Instapundit, Gateway Pundit, RightWingNews, IMAO), and even on the David Boze Show, a local Conservative talk show here in Seattle. I uploaded it to Twitpic, and as of now, it has over 11,500 views.

Attention student protesters: If you’re going to cut class to protest budget cuts, you might not want to hold misspelled signs. It makes you look really dumb. And oh yeah, if you’re going to correct the sign, correct it all the way. Don’t go halfway and throw in the towel.

And now back to more photos of protesting brilliance:

My, aren't those Cherry Blossoms beautiful?

I suppose these "radical women" mean tax them MORE since they're already taxed, but I could be wrong.

This message brought to you by the Freedom Socialist Party

I'm sensing a theme here...

And here we have the inevitable hippie chicks dancing.

So we’ve learned that all we have to do to stop budget cuts (and in effect, fix the economy) is to tax the rich. It’s so simple!

Keep in mind, folks, that I go to school with these people.

Every. Single. Day.

Btw, here’s the intro to Friday’s “David Boze Show,” featuring yours truly:

Quote of the day

July 14, 2009

I was listening to an archived podcast of The Dennis Prager Show a couple of minutes ago, and Prager said something I felt I had to share with all of you:

“I do not want America to be loved. If it happens, that’s lovely. It is of no interest to me. Zero. To Liberals, it is very important. I want America to do what is right. If we end up loved, fine. If we don’t end up loved, fine. Since when does “world love” correspond with “world goodness?” Exactly when?”

I can’t tell you how often this topic comes up at the UW in my political science classes. This past quarter, for example, I had a media and politics class where we discussed America’s brand image, and what we could do to “fix it”  around the world.” The whole idea was to figure out how we could change  to make other countries like us more.

Out of 100+ students, I was the only one who vocally expressed that I didn’t care what other countries thought about us. I am so in alignment with Prager on this issue, it’s not even funny. I couldn’t care less about being liked. Like Prager, all I care about is that we’re doing what’s right.

UW Graduating Seniors Protest SecDef Robert Gates’ Commencement Speech – VIDEO

Robert Gates’ UW Commencement Speech – Update

June 13, 2009

Just wanted to give an update on a couple of blog posts (part 1, part 2) I wrote about two weeks ago, entitled: “UW Nutjobs Plan To Protest SecDef’s Commencement Speech Next Weekend.” The groups planning on protesting were:

– The International Socialist Organization

– Democracy Insurgent

– Bail Out the People — Not the Banks!

– Socialist Alternative

– World Can’t Wait

– The Anti-War Collective


Anyway, just saw this Facebook update from a Conservative friend of mine who’s graduating today. He wrote:

Robert Gates gave an amazing speech. Protestors were expelled with large cheers. Maybe I am proud of UW.

Good stuff, glad to hear it.

You Know You’re at a Liberal University When…

June 5, 2009

…the professor asks a class of 100 students to raise their hands if they think being a cop is more noble than being an academic professor, and you’re one of three people to do so.

Btw, the professor is an ex-police sergeant and 15-year vet on the force.

Welcome to life at the UW.
