Professor Bret Weinstein, a leftist, refused to participate in the evacuation of white people (only) from the campus of Evergreen State College and sued the college for the hostile work environment he alleged that he and his wife subsequently suffered. Without admitting that charge, the state-supported institution that already faces a $2.1 million deficit and layoffs, is going to cough up a cool half million bucks to avoid the expense, spectacle, and risk of a jury trial.

[Editor’s note: So the taxpayers of Washington will now need to cough up half a million dollars to settle the claim. Is the “University” administration to suffer any consequences for their idiotic policies? No, they get to enjoy their inflated salaries, benefits and can look forward to their generous pensions, all the while continuing their war on the civil society by indoctrinating another generation of ignorant social justice warriors.]

Seattle’s Income Tax Brings Out the Crazy in People
By unanimous vote, the Seattle City Council has now enacted an Income Tax ordinance imposing a tax on “high income residents,” i.e, those whose annual incomes exceed $250,000 ($500,000 for joint filers).
The new legislation is largely the work of Councilwoman Kshama Sawant, an unabashed leftist and redistributionist who was elected on the Socialist Alternative party ticket, and who was a moving force behind Seattle’s ill-advised $15 per hour minimum wage.
The purpose was never revenue nor public safety
Source: That Seattle Gun Tax Is Working Exactly as Planned
In 2015, Seattle, to much fanfare by the vocal gun-grabbing minority in America, passed a law that was billed as a way of reducing gun violence. Based on the same economic principle that has created wealth by raising the minimum wage to $15/hour, Seattle slapped a $25 tax on every firearm sale as well as a tax on ammunition (5 cents per centerfire cartridge and 2 cents per rimfire cartridge). Not only was this tax supposed to discourage the purchase of firearms, it was supposed to raise funds to aid victims of gun crime.

Kentlake High School, Kent, Washington

An education exchange to Osaka, Japan and a yearly trip to Victoria, BC by the high school band have both been canceled. And why? Because of President Trump, of | Read More »
