    I think it will do well; hopefully very well.

    Lympians stop supporting black people going to college because The United Negro College Fund took $25 million from the Koch brothers.

    Nevermind that one of the biggest employers in this state is laying off 18K people……..

    I hope one of those “kabooms” will be that of former WA Governor Gregoire, who lost in court the ability to bully Ralph’s Pharmacy in Olympia over the right of two of their pharmacists to not be forced to sell the morning after abortafacient on conscience grounds- a war on woman of faith.

    I’m still baffled by the number of people that somehow manage to twist “no, I won’t pay for that” into “if I’m not paying for it, you have no other options to obtain it.”

    Any creature with at least two firing synapses can tell they’re not the same.

    Lympians, Harvardians, and the like have migrated their belief system from Groupthink to Cult. All thought that is Outside will not be considered or even acknowledged. Whenever I dare disagree with one of my Prog In-Laws, I am met with a moment of open-mouthed astonishment, then the mutual affirmation discussion would continue as if I had said nothing.

    They (Lympians) have sitcoms pushing for enrollment in ObamaCare. The government present regime is allowing illegal aliens undocumented foreigners, many with nasty third world diseases, to flood our southern borders. Archie Andrews was shot and killed while trying to defend his gay, gun-control-pushing friend. The comic book character, Thor, is now a whiny girl. About time conservatives pushed back somewhere ( sort of like Lee’s army pushing into Pennsylvania).

    Yep, they need to be worried that a store is going to open that keeps decent hours for employees who earn almost twice minimum wage.

    The next thing you know women folk will be buying yarn and knitting and art supplies and pairing pretty pictures. Who know what will happen to the community when they can start framing up pictures and trying to make their homes pretty.

    Of course the worst, very worst thing of all is going the be all of the Christmas decorations they put on sale in last few months of the year. Children might then start asking about that Jesus stuff and we know where that leads; confusion about abortion and the waiving the requirement to abort their first born sons. I know that sounds drastic but I am sure I heard a politician saying that was part of the court decision.

    So I can see the protester signs now, No to Art Supplies, Yes to Abortion and don’t take away our birth control and make us have babies, especially gay couples and lesbians. Justice not Wiggle Eyes!

    Not only that ^ but HL is cleaning up the automotive shop contamination abandoned by k mart. On their own dime.

    If that’s not being a good citizen (dare I say green? No) I don’t know what is.

    What is that sizzling sound I hear? Is it burning coals on the heads of their detractors?

    I was wondering what was going in at the old K-Mart. This is good news. Now if we can get Whole Foods to move into the old Top Foods down the street I’ll have no reason to leave town!
    BTW, Whole Foods is building a store at the site of an old junk-yard in Fircrest. Another great store is Metropolitan Market in the Pt. Defiance area. I’ve gone out of my way to go there the food is so fresh and good.

    Dave, what I always find humorous is how the Lympians pretend that Capitol mall and all those box stores over there and much of the crap on Martin Way is in Lacey, not Olympia.

    Hamas has declared war on Israel.
    Russia has declared war on Western Europe.
    The Taliban has declared war on women.
    China has declared economic war on the US.
    GLOBAL has declared war on traditional American culture.
    Iran has declared war on history.
    Syria has declared war on common sense.
    Islam has declared war on modern civilization.
    So as not to feel left out, liberals have declared war on Hobby Lobby.

    Maybe some Lympian heads will explode – then again, they DO need supplies for Creature Day.

    I sometimes wonder what it would be like for Roberta to open a craft supplies store in the United Arab Emirates.

    When answering the phone, she could say:

    “Abu Dhabi Hobby Lobby, this is Bobbie.”

    ((I apologize. But I sure feel a lot better now that I got that out.))

    The ‘Lympians are so butt hurt and tweaked out that they are now calling Hobby Lobby an effort to brainwash children in the schools. You can find this in The Olympian dot com, until you use up you amount of free page views.

    The store will be in an abandoned K-Mart, and won’t open until 2015. I expect massive protests.
