At McDonald's in Mill Creek, WA -- the TV is tuned to CNN!



Not MSNBC or Current, but not Fox!

This is the first place I've been in years that had a TV playing, and after all the Fox complaints I've seen here, this is a pleasant surprise!

1. I work seasonal work at the

IRS in Kansas City. Usually from about late February until mid May. Guess what is on almost
all televisions????? FAUX.. I cannot believe it, and I cannot reach the dials, although someone changes the channel in the lunch room I go to for lunch and breaks..thank goodness.
But the ones in the giant hallways...with big comfy chairs sitting around are all on FOX> YUK

15. Ironic -- the conservatives would probably love to abolish the IRS!

2. Well that is a good thing

Surprising in the fact that Snohomish County is trending more right. I'm not far from there and I was shocked that my precinct went Romney/McKenna. It was by a hair but STILL...It was disturbing.

6. I'm disturbed when ANY Republican gets support in Washington! I JUST moved here from Seattle/King

and I got pretty spoiled.

I'm right on the border of Bothell/Mill Creek, don't know any of the neighbors -- maybe I don't want to!

10. Me too....

I was shocked when I saw the precinct results....At least Dawn McCrazy didn't win for the State Office. That was the one I was watching with an eagle eye. Rosemary McAuliffe got a great deal of bad press and education was a big buzz issue. I was afraid the teabag lady was gonna squeek in. She spent a great deal of her husbands oil money trying to buy the seat and did a whole lot of door belling. One on one she came across as very likeable and moderate. I made a real effort to reach out to my neighbors about her after she came a calling.

3. Hi neighbor!

I live in Bothell. I don't normally go to McDonald's, but if I get the urge for a shake, I'll hit them up.

Oh, forgot - what is it with Faux News being on in every single gym? I don't believe only right wingers work out.

7. I just moved to Bothell, right on the border to Mill Creek, from Seattle.

Only came to McDonald's to test my WiFi. .

16. If you want a GREAT pizza and don't mind a little drive

Go on up to Number 1 NY Pizza on Highway 9. They aren't open Sundays and Mondays and they close at 8. They have some booths but is more of a take out place. The pies are pricey but I'm a NY/NJ transplant and this is the closest you can come to an authentic east coast pie. If you need tips for great Thai, Indian or Chinese let me know....

I like living around here. I'm a little farther out than you ...over by Cathcart/Clearview but I know Canyon Park and Mill Creek well.

4. Our local Wendy's got a TV a year ago and only shows FOX!

We told the manager bye bye. Two days after the election we went in and saw all of our friends at the counter and had a good chuckle. They were pretty good sports about it. We said goodbye after lunch and let them know we would be back when FOX was off the TV in the dining room. It is amazing how many people won't speak up.

Good news about FOX being off the TV!

11. I've seen so many stories here about TV's in car repair shops, fast food places, dentist/doctor

offices -- and the complaint is that they're all tuned to Fox. It's a wonder Obama won the election with so much propaganda being shoved into people's brains.

5. Mill Creek is pretty much republican.

The section that we live in has 188 households. 8 are registered democrats.

8. Yikes! I never knew that! For some reason I always thought Mill Creek was

Progressive. Maybe it's because I just moved here (to Bothell) from Seattle and I assume EVERYONE is a liberal.

14. Well they are not the bat-shit crazy teabagger types,

but mostly old-fashioned moderate republicans. The real Party of Lincoln types. I like Ike types.

There are a few more I know of that live close by. We have a few in Woodinville and Silver Lake too. I don't remember their names but it's been mentioned in the past.

13. CNN sucks and worse than Fox

Fox is considered a joke to most but CNN is taken more seriously so they cause more harm.

fuck CNN
