Harry Bailey is a confirmed liar. That he hasn't been removed as Chief is indication that Ed Murray has no business being our mayor. Recall him now!

Watch him "pick" Harry Bailey. Like Bush "picked" Cheney to be his VP.

I'm in District 4. It sucks. Eastlake sheds a tear for us.

The disappearing power line should've been your first clue...
Apr 10 DOUG. commented on Condoleezza Rice Named to Dropbox Board, Dropbox Users Protest.
During the greatest security breach in the history of this nation, Condoleeza Rice's job was National Fucking Security Advisor. She is an utter failure and shouldn't work anywhere ever again.

Nice reporting, Anna. But you should've titled this post "Pretzel Logic."

@118: CNBC did not poll 2300 people. 2300 people responded to a Yes/No question on CNBC's website. That's totally different.

I wish we could have an honest debate on this important issue. The misinformation coming from the restaurant industry is unfortunate.

@Meinert: Did you write this paragraph, as Dom's source alleges:
Let your servers know that if tips aren't counted as part of the minimum wage, tips will probably go away, and a service charge will be implemented which would have sales tax taken out and would have to be used to pay for the wage increases. It's most likely that no one would ever make over $20-$25 per hour, if even that.

If so, it is full of lies. Tips will not probably go away, there's no way to know if a service charge will be implemented, and it's very likely that servers will continue to make over $20-$25 per hour.

@106: Remember when you said that raising the minimum wage "will mean115 jobs lost" at Lost Lake? That was an "untruth", wasn't it?

This could be a really good debate, but it sucks that you and some of your fellow restaurant owners cannot be honest with your numbers. It puts your whole argument in question.
