[Ed.: No, it’s time for Seattle to pull their heads out of the collective asses – elected officials present and past – that have allowed their own storm water system be co-mingled with their sanitary sewer system which means that it has nothing to do with water usage and everything to do with how much rain comes out of the sky in the Seattle city limits. Last time I checked, we still weren’t controlling the weather. Every other city in the area has a sanitary sewer system and a storm water system that goes through filters and eventually into creeks, rivers and lakes or the Puget Sound. It’s time for Seattle to pony up, pull back on their BS social projects and pay to fix their system so that a big rain storm – the kind we never, ever get – can cause our sewer treatment plant to pollute the Puget Sound again. What? Jay Inslee, do I hear your faint little voice trying to muster a sound against your liberal little friends running King County and the City of Seattle? <chirp chirp> Guess not.]
Poop-Covered Sidewalks: Racially Insensitive to Clean Them Says Seattle Councilman | National Review
[Ed.: Councilman Gossett has officially derailed. Normally he’s reflexively liberal, but this is reflexively idiotic. “Uh, ya know Councilmember that we’ll ask the people to remove themselves from the sidewalks before we start power washing, right?” He invoked the name of Bull Connor (a member of his own political party we might add) because Connor directed firefighters to use fire hoses against civil rights marchers in Birmingham, Alabama in the 1960s. We would agree that there’s definitely some “bull” going on, but it’s coming out of Gossett’s pie hole.]
SEATTLE (AP) – Seattle’s City Council voted 9-0 on Monday to impose an income tax on the wealthy. Seattle’s highest earners would become the only Washington state residents to pay an income tax. The measure is likely headed to court to decide its constitutionality.
[Ed.: 9 elected officials in Seattle and not one has a lick of sense. They do not understand or care that their powers are superseded by the state’s power. Seattle voters/taxpayers who oppose this silliness might as well be talking to a brick wall.]
‘Safe injection sites’ are not the answer to our heroin problem | Guest Editorial | Redmond Reporter
I’ve seen the future of opioids. It’s Vancouver, B.C. and it’s not pretty. King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray have a proposal to open two so-called “safe injection sites” to save people from certain slow or sudden death from abusing heroin, meth and other illicit drugs.
The ballot measure is as simply worded as an initiative could be:
Shall supervised drug consumption sites for Schedule I controlled substances (RCW 69.50.204), including heroin but excluding marijuana, be unlawful in King County?”
Professor says he’s relocated his family and is unsure of his future at The Evergreen State College in Olympia | The Olympian
Bret Weinstein, the professor at the heart of a heated controversy over alleged racism at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, said he’s relocated his family for their safety and he’s unsure about his future at the public liberal arts college.
[Ed.: If the college’s president had any stones, he would never have let this come to this. The First Amendment does protect speech, but it does not protect unlawful speech such as incitement, threats, or slander. This professor is at least a principled lefty who believes in the Constitution and would not be cowed by these student bullies who want to tell others what to do.]
[Ed.: As Hawaii Five-O Detective Captain McGarrett would say, “Book ’em, Danno!”]
[Ed.: This is a bridge too far and this agenda to ‘define deviancy down’ needs to be stopped here. Letting boys/men shower with women/girls because they “identify” as female should be rebuffed with everything we have. There are lecherous straight men (which is 99% of them – just ask them, they’ll tell you) that could use this as a convenient excuse to see females in the showers at schools, in private areas of recreation facilities and even in restrooms. The minute someone goes to the ultimate level of sacrifice by having their equipment removed is when we can assume someone really identifies as a female. Not until then!]
[Ed.: The idiocy knows no bounds. Makes you wonder if she ever read Animal Farm… I seriously doubt she has ever taken an economics class or understands how the free market works… What a complete economic illiterate.]
