According to our Neo-Nazi friends the National Socialist Movement, yours truly is a mentally defective leftist from Olympia, ringleader of a sickening group, a very evil woman and total traitor to the white race. I am also supposedly a commie whore and a "winch".
"Winch" I'll accept, sounds like a handy thing to be, slap a military title in front and you've got me: Major Winch. Now I just need a uniform, lots of medals, and a lovely pair of boots.
What's your name, rank, and serial number?
Here is what my fevered brain has invented so far:
When they shout Sieg Heil!......we have many choices including:
Gomer Pyle! Nail File! In Style! Dog Pile! Mister Kyle! Stomach Bile! Radio Dial! (In honor of F.R.O.) One Mile! De - nial! Square Tile! So Vile!
Instead of their White Power!...... Red Flower! So Sour! Brick Tower! Wheat Flour! One Hour!
I can see that a convergence of thought is occuring on what to do when the Nazis come to visit Olympia again. I've been considering the following diabolical plan, and I ran it by my class this morning and got a big thumbs up. Here's what we do:
This strategy of mockery has several attractive features. Our presence will deter those who may be vulnerable to recruitment, but would change the dynamic of the demonstration from one of confrontation to one of humor and farce. The comical approach will make their claims about being an abused minority look hysterical. It will make it very hard for them to spin any photos taken from the event. Finally, it will be great fun for us to think of creative ways to dress like Nazis. (The more like Village People, the better!)
I've collected a few examples that we might use in constructing our creations. Of course, we have lots of hilarious models on their website, but here are some more to work from:
I don't remember if I am a spy, ally, or enemy of caimans at the moment. My confusion might be caused by the noxious fumes those scaly scamps regularly blow into my house. No matter, what is most important is that caimans dislike Nazis. Intensely.
Most likely this is a turf thing. Caimans are highly territorial and they will not stand for take over attempts of our/their community. (Don't ask Steve exactly -how- caimans were first introduced to Olympia, he takes it personally.)
Stand up for the right to have only one nemesis in Olympia. And for heaven's sake, when marching with caimans to protest the Nazis, wear a gas mask.
Results show that on average, the 90-minute free zone was approximately 80% full from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on both days. The study also identified that over 100 individuals were moving from space to space within the 90-minute free zone. For several years, it has been common knowledge that some downtown business owners and employees take free parking intended for patrons. We believe the Parking Services study shows occupancy rates are over the peak efficiency level and that many individuals are taking advantage of the spirit of the 90-minute free zone.The initial cost of putting in parking meters or pay stations could cost as much as $300,000, bringing in $250,000 per year. You know you're a big town when you really start worrying about parking downtown. I don't think Aberdeen and Shelton care as much.
The merger votes are part of a regional trend. Federal Way and Des Moines fire departments united and became South King Fire & Rescue in January. Olympia and Tumwater fire departments have recently talked about joining forces, as well.
Experts say mergers make sense because they consolidate administrative functions.
"You end up putting more people in the red trucks," said Chief Jack Andren of the Central Pierce Fire & Rescue, which formed 10 years ago after four districts merged. "You are able to shift your tax dollars to improving the level of service."

Now here's something you don't see every day.
Just as you feared it would be. OlyBlog is even in the blog roll of the political satire site Jesus' General.
General JC Christian recently did an actual serious post about the NSM hit list and one of the listees David Neiwert of Orcinus.
