Seattle continues its embrace of Karl Marx’s “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”

by Skip March 3, 2018

“…the task force was told to consider “new progressive revenue sources,…” I just slowly shake my head.  We’ve covered Seattle’s silliness (except it really is disheartening) over the years as Statism / Socialism seems to have grabbed hard on its leaders (at least one is outright and proud Socialist) as it deploys policies that keep […]

In Its Rush To Please Ruling Class Progressives, Facebook Sort of, Kind of, Screws Itself

by Steve MacDonald February 5, 2018

Remember when Facebook was super-giddy-helpful with announcing that the Russians were using Facebook Ads to influence the 2016 Elections? Hey, progressives look at us pimping the narrative du jour! Well, someone in Seattle realized Facebook was collecting cash (probably a lot of cash) for political ads and failing to properly report who was buying those ads as […]

Seattle’s Sugar Tax Went Into Effect on January 1st. Guess How That’s Going to Turn Out?

by Steve MacDonald January 8, 2018

Seattle is a city on a crazy train to the liberal utopia. They implemented a gun tax and mandated higher minimum wages (which unintentionally pushed people off welfare and housing programs). There’s a special high Earners tax. The city banned affordable and convenient plastic bags. Their proudly gay (and married) mayor only resigned after his fifth child sex […]

Lawyer In Seattle Tax Dispute Says ‘Income isn’t Property’

by Steve MacDonald November 17, 2017

Seattle imposed a high earner tax, and both sides are in court fighting for the right to tax or to not to be taxed. The city wants to take other peoples money. The people who earned money would rather not part with it. And in the midst of this fight, the lawyer for the city […]

Seattle’s “Win” in the Fight for 15 is Costing Jobs, Hours, and lowering Paychecks

by Steve MacDonald June 26, 2017

God, I love being right especially after watching progressive narrative monkey’s puke their Union/Democrat party minimum-wage-talking-points all over my comments section. Being right is the best. And when it comes to Seattle, right comes easy. This week’s Poster Child for Stupid Liberal ideas we told you would not work, is last weeks. Seattle. Seattle’s minimum-wage law is boosting […]

From the “Nothing Democrats Promise Comes True” File: Seattle Gun Tax Failures

by Steve MacDonald June 17, 2017

From Legal Insurrection: After Seattle’s Gun Tax: Lost Jobs, Little Revenue, More Violent Crime. Is anyone who is not a liberal surprised? Although Seattle’s gun tax was supposed to bring in $300,000 to $500,000, it’s brought in less than $200,000.  The money was supposed to be used to “study” gun violence and to somehow lower […]

Another “Sanctuary” City Evolves

by Ed Naile April 9, 2017

The Mayor of Seattle is up for the Annual Gerry Studds Medal of Heroism. He should win re-election in this city handily. Mayor Ed Murry isn’t just another pretty face. Here is his Re-Elect Ed Murry website if you want some pictures of Ed with some minorities. I am sure this paying a minor for […]

Time is Running out for American Muslims

(PJ Media) Time is running out for American Muslims. Mainstream America can connect the dots from Skaleshfar’s bloodlust to San Bernardino to Fort Hood to Seattle to Garland to an empty field in Somerset — and finally to Pulse. All of these murderers thought they were acting according to their professed Islamic faith. I’ll leave […]

Thumbnail image for Minimum Wage Hike Killing Jobs in Seattle?

Beginning in April of last year employment numbers in the city of Seattle began to drop as unemployment rose. The AEI study, worked up from Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly surveys, shows that, between April and December last year, Seattle saw the biggest employment drop in any nine-month period since 2009 — a full year […]

So, how’s Seattle’s raising the minimum wage to $15 working for those it was supposed to help?

by Skip August 25, 2015

Once again, we see the hubris of planners and those that have never signed the front of a paycheck in companies that have low profit margins in low skilled worker industries (re: restaurants)(emphasis mine): In June of last year, the Seattle city council passed a $15 minimum wage law to be phased in over time, […]

Sleepless in Seattle?

Income trigger warning. A certain class of nearly-doing-well-enoughs are concerned that recent wage justice victories in Seattle will trigger income thresholds in a variety of government subsidies that will result in those free-rides being discontinued. They are asking their employers for fewer hours so they can keep their government handouts. Yes indeed. Seattle’s best only work to […]

We talk about how Seattle small business owners “feel” about that $15/hr minimum wage the progressives had to have, where not to go in New Hampshire if you want the base to vote for you, then its on to death taxes followed by a few minutes on electricity and energy.  Listen to the entire broadcast […]

Socialist Freedom Party – Only YOU ALL should pay that hourly rate (we pay less)

by Skip October 17, 2014

Seattle just raised its minimum wage to $15 / hour and that also include small biz – the Mom & Pop type operations – as well as the big ones.  One of the biggest yellers at the time was the Socialist Freedom Party that was jumping up and down demanding others pay more for goods […]

Interstate Voter Fraud

by Ed Naile June 30, 2014

You may not have seen this in the news because it is one of those things that never happens – but it happened again. A Democrat in the State of Washington mailed some phony letters to Florida Republicans in an effort to quell his mental disorder – progressivism. One, James Webb Baker Jr. 58 of […]

Happy “Dependence Day” Seattle – Your City Just Banned Plastic Bags

by Steve MacDonald July 4, 2012

Nothing says freedom like telling your citizens or local businesses what to do.  But Seattle is not exactly a bastion of Freedom and liberty.  And today is no different. The Seattle City Council has voted to ban plastic grocery bags. This is another win by so-called environmental groups that claim the bags fill up landfills […]
