This brings up a funny thought I had recently... what would a Republican protest look like?

I imagine it'd look like rush hour. A thousand BMW and C-class Mercedes, parked on the street in downtown, with the windows up and air conditioning blasting, drivers furiously tweeting out Trump re-tweets.

People calling this "false news" are being intentionally obtuse.

The President and his transition team has had two full months to write down a couple of paragraphs on their stance on common issues, and stage those web pages so they were ready to launch after the transition on Jan 20.

On Jan 20, they took down SOME of the WhiteHouse.gov web site. That included all the pages listed.

The Trump team had NOTHING to put in those places on the web site. There is no section for civil rights, healthcare, Immigration, and only a paragraph - after mentioning that every American is going to start burning coal again - about how the EPA is somehow going to keep our air and water clean while diesel-powered machines dig into our national parks and extract oil and coal for Americans to burn in our... umm... coal-burning stoves? Not sure how that is supposed to work...

There is no handicapped-accessible version of the site, nor is there a version in any other language.

So all of that is true. All of those pages and policies are gone from the site.

Anyone who says different has not actually visited the site.

The article addressed that, sort of, with this:

    "In 2007, the U.S. Army was habitually failing to meet its monthly recruiting goals; the application standards relaxed and a great cross-section of humanity ended up reporting for duty that warm October at Fort Leonard Wood."

Seattle. Well, just north, but still within the general "Seattle" area.

So what did you choose for hold music?

Excellent! I shall bring her some business, soon.

(And while I am there, I can go to the bakery and get one of those bagel-wrapped hotdogs from the butcher's shop next door! LOVE those things...)

Strandbeest. Oh man, I would LOVE to have one of those on a big, wide, flat beach some day...

    my wife runs a frame shop

Oh yes? Tell me more! Anywhere near Burien?

I have one triptych that I need to frame, but that's the only "fancy" one. The others just need simple matte and frame. I'm paying a local Burien shop about $150/ea to frame a couple of others.

The Cascadia flag is even better, even though it isn't for a real city/state/country.
