[Ed.: We’re alright with suing her into oblivion. It would pair up perfectly with her level of understanding of economics.]

Campaigners for Initiative 27 submitted the required signatures to put on a ballot a ban on safe injection sites. But that doesn’t matter to the King County Council.

[Ed.: “Abuse of Power” doesn’t quite do this action justice. This is downright dereliction of duty, malfeasance and misfeasance. Rantz is absolutely spot-on in his analysis of this action. It’s delaying and a completely tone deaf response to the concerns of citizens who have not been impressed with the results that Vancouver, BC is getting with this sort of facility.

I’m glad there’s an “equal protection” clause in our Constitution so that the law is always meted out equally and fairly. These people need to be locked up for their lawlessness.]

[Ed.: As predicted, the King County Council (save a few sane ones) is pulling out the stops to push this to a February Special Election ballot so that it will not be successful.]

[Ed.: Oh, is polling telling you that your precious, stupid liberal idea is going to go down in flames if you don’t sue and have the initiative quashed before you get to de facto legalize heroin in King County? Any judge who looks at this with a skeptical eye toward any health benefits of this crackpot program has to side with the sane people who do not want supervised injection sites because it doesn’t work and it draws a criminal drug element.]

[Ed.: They could care less about gun owners’ privacy – fact is they’d probably love to “out” them – this was all about protecting a bad political decision based on bad data from city staff. If there was ever a more inept city council, it’d have to be Baltimore, MD or Detroit, MI from a few years ago.]

Seattle landlords barred from using criminal records when renting | MyNorthwest.com

The Seattle City Council unanimously passed legislation that will bar landlords from considering criminal records when renting property.

[Ed.: Again the Seattle City Council overreaches. It’s like they’ve got a full-employment program for land use attorneys going on there because Seattle’s going to get their asses sued off. So, now we’re destigmatizing criminality. It should be hard to find a place to live if you’ve committed a felony. You’re potentially a danger to your fellow renters and a landlord should know if there’s a potentially heightened risk from a new tenant. Just wait until the first landlord or tenant is harmed by a felon who was not known to be so. The city’s going to lose their shorts in court(s).]

A trail of evidence shows just how much collaboration there was between the City of Seattle and a university that published a pro-minimum wage study.

[Ed.: Is it any wonder that the City of Seattle needs to cook the books to make the $15 Minimum Wage story jive? Of course it doesn’t work because it’s ECONOMICS. Oh wait, you have a councilmember that’s a PhD in Economics that should know this wouldn’t work like it was pitched. What? She’s the one that was actually pushing for doubling the minimum wage in Seattle? Someone needs to have their credentials taken away because clearly any real college or university wouldn’t teach this sort of drivel. Yes, I’m talking to you NC State Wolfpack!]
