Mar 26 Sam Levine commented on How a $15 Minimum Wage Would Make Everyone Richer.
It's depressing that the left is devolving into the same arguments as the right. "We're good! That other group is bad! Do this, because we're not like that other group which is bad!"
Mar 10 Sam Levine commented on Smells Like Cheap Cologne: Electric Six's Played Out Rock.
Electric Six makes fantastic music for karaoke.
Mar 6 Sam Levine commented on Yet Another Democrat Defects to GOP.
Most of the state is much further to the right than the People's Republic of King County. What may very well work in Seattle doesn't work in the rest of Western Washington, let alone in the east.
Feb 28 Sam Levine commented on Calls for Taxi Deregulation Ignore Seattle's History of Failed Taxi Deregulation.
@16

"Taxis serve people without smartphones, without credit cards, and who pay with cash or scrip. The TNCs do not."

The intersection of the venn diagram of people that are too poor to have a smart phone or a credit card but are rich enough to pay for a taxi is really small.

This being said if there isn't sufficient demand for this that service will go away, but I don't think it will. You're just shilling for a special interest that can treat customers like shit and provide awful service because of your beloved "regulation".

"Taxis also pick up hailing passengers." "Are you suggesting that unregulated drivers in unmarked cars should be stopping to pick up hailing customers?"

Make it legal and somebody will. We already let people drive cars, this isn't a marginal decrease in safety.
Feb 26 Sam Levine commented on Not Everybody Has a Smartphone and a Credit Card!.
It's trivial to get a smartphone and a payment card of some kind. The upfront costs are frequently less than a single ride if you don't buy the latest and greatest phone.

Feb 25 Sam Levine commented on Man Reportedly Shoots Self in Head While Giving Girlfriend Gun Safety Demonstration.
Not posted on the Stranger: someone killing themselves in a car because they were drunk, followed by demands that the government "protect" the public by banning automobiles.
Feb 21 Sam Levine commented on Not Sexually Satisfied? Could It Be Your Country's Fault?.
"People in other countries have up to 70 times more sex than we do."

This is from a survey of Men's Health readers. The slog poll is just as scientific.
Feb 19 Sam Levine commented on An Economist Responds to That Stupid Video About Sex and Economics.
Seriously though, for people that support labor unions this shouldn't be that hard for folks to understand or imagine.

@27

"If men aren't more interested in fucking than women then why do 99% of sex workers cater to men?"

Because the patriarchy.
