Apr 18 CC-Rob commented on The Morning News: Mike McGinn Jumps In the Mayor's Race, Seattle and King County Approve $1.3 Million to Legally Defend Immigrants.
RE:McGinn entering the race. I know I am also more concerned with his logo than his policy positions. Keep up the great reporting!
Apr 17 CC-Rob commented on Mike McGinn Is Running for Mayor Again.
I don't think the Seattle Times meant McGinn when they talked about more "mainstream" candidates. From the moment he was elected Mayor, the establishment (Democratic Party, Council and local news media attacked him. (Remember Gregoire trashing him and WDOT releasing the via-duct earthquake footage near election time?) His term as mayor demonstrated how the local "progressive" establishment wasn't really that progressive.
Apr 5 CC-Rob commented on Photos From Bertha's Breakthrough.
Hooray! Let's celebrate this over-budget boondoggle. Who's going to pay the cost over run? Who knows. But the important thing to remember, rich developers and land owners will soon have a big increase in their property values when their views open up on the waterfront. The system works!*

(For the rich.)
Apr 4 CC-Rob commented on Mayor Ed Murray Thinks Democrats Are Too Preoccupied with "Purity Tests".
"Purity Tests" is the term corporate Democrats use when people ask them about money they take from big donors and how it influences their policies.
Apr 4 CC-Rob commented on Maria Cantwell Calls on Trump Administration to Form Hate Crime Task Force.
A task force? Why not a "Blue Ribbon panel"?

If this the resistance to Drumph, we're screwed.
Mar 22 CC-Rob commented on The Morning News: Oso Three Years Later, Attack at UK Parliament.
RE: Cantwell This would be the perfect time for her to be pushing universal coverage - medicare for all. Unfortunately, she has aligned herself with the interests of pharmaceutical/medical industrial complex. It's cool though, she can quote Macklemore.

She's a troll and provocateur, who lacks any substance.
Mar 21 CC-Rob commented on Trump Doesn't Give Two Shits About His Supporters (And Neither Should You).
I know I sound crazy, but a lot of people have been manipulated and have been on the receiving end of disinformation and misinformation. Rather thank being a condescending twat, why not try to reach out and find common ground. It could lead to crazy stuff like election victories and cleaning up the corruption in government.
Mar 15 CC-Rob commented on Maddow Says She Has "Trump Tax Returns" (UPDATE: They're From 2005—Now Let's Watch Maddow Together!).
Returns from 2005? I haven't been this underwhelmed since Al Capone's vault. On the bright side for Comcast owned, MSNBC. Maddow probably got a ratings boost.
Mar 14 CC-Rob commented on Fill Out the White House's Dumb Form: "Share Your Obamacare Disaster Story".
The time for single payer is now! It's a moral issue. The Democrats need stop sucking up to the medical insurance industry. (And Guess what, it's a winner at the polls too!)
