    I moved away from North Seattle, and moved into a nice, quiet suburb 15 miles, and across the water, to the North Kitsap Penninsula — partly because I was SUPER sick and tired of Seattle hippie/granolas/socialist/hippsters etc with their FUCKING self-righteous, “I’m so liberal” attitude. When, in reality, they are some of the most uptight, rigid fucks you’ll ever meet, unless you’re just like them. And I’m sorry, but I refuse to be a sandal with socks wearing, soccer loving, granola eating, sad soggy hipster. Goddamnit! I prefer football, rap music, BBQ and blowjobs from hot chicks and then after I’m done with them, I kick em out of their own house, eat all their food before they have a chance to say “I mean I mean I mean, don’t you want a relationship?” And the chicks in Seattle are fat. I’d much rather hang out with Rodney from Dallas any day of the week, than i would with your typical Seattle liberal. There are also great people in Seattle but those people are not usually involved with the socialist politics. I haven’t been to the city of Seattle in years and don’t plan to go unless, of course, Tom Leykis has a listener party there, then I’ll go.

    A burger flipper should not make $15/hr. Period.

      Couldn’t agree more with this assessment.

      I live in the only true liberal area of OKC (just north of downtown) and I see this behavior all the time. I’m not a conservative myself but—–forced to make a choice—-I will gladly hang out with conservatives over liberals any day of the week.

    Ha! $15/hr to flip burgers. It won’t take long before inflation catches up to them. Economic illiteracy at it’s finest. Rents will go up Seattle.
