Mar 17 -J commented on This Fall's Ballot Will Determine the Fate of the Next Phase of Mass Transit in Puget Sound.
This probably falls under the category of shit I should already know...but I don't. What taxes are going to be proposed for this? Is it all property? I see the price tag but no details on how that gets collected.
Mar 4 -J commented on People Even in Seattle Are Still Saying Owning an SUV is the Same As Owning a Dog.
I've never heard this comparison before either and tend to agree with @4. That said you really shouldn't leave your SUV in the parking lot insider your SUV. If can overheat and die super easy.
Jan 21 -J commented on Anticipating New Regulations, Airbnb Releases Seattle Impact Report.
My sister in law signed a lease for her place and she and her long term girlfriend promptly broke up. Bummer all around as far as that is concerned. She is now Airbnb-ing the additional room in the place that she was on the hook for with no prayer of being able to afford (her turnover is quite low, I think the current renter is there for 3 months).
I'm not saying that it isn't being abused, I'm not saying it shouldn't be regulated, I'm just saying that there are cases where it's being used in a manner that I really believe helps people. My $0.02
Jan 15 -J commented on Cliff Mass Is Wrong About the Carbon Tax and Seattle's Liberals.
Charles, I know that you like to troll so I can never decide when you're doing so or just being obstinate. The quote you provide doesn't blame liberals for Seattle's public transportation backwardness, it points to said backwardness and says "WTF?! You should be doing better." I assume you agree. I sure as shit do.
Aug 26, 2015 -J commented on Good-Bye, Seattle.
Dear Seattle;
I was first born here in 1980 and soon found myself in the warm embrace of 19 and 20 year old artist parents. After 17 years of growing up broke as fuck I went to school for an engineering degree. Now I've got a home in a city I still love and a job that occasionaly makes me want to gouge out my eyes and alost certianly leads me to damage my liver with regularity.

Everything has a price. Hopefully the path we take has a price tag we can manage. Best of luck to those of you getting royally fucked by the Seattle economy. It can be real shitty out there.

How dare you look at things in context. This is America.

Only if Bertha eats the pomegranate seeds. STAY AWAY FROM THE POMEGRANATES BERTHA!
Feb 10, 2015 -J commented on Jeb Bush Publishes Social Security Numbers of Constituents Online.
Kind of looks like they needed an excuse to fire their hateful, misogynistic, homophobic new hire but saying "we didn't check/care that he is a hateful, misogynistic, homophobic dick before we were told we should" didn't go over well with the focus groups.
Oct 21, 2014 -J commented on Well, That Didn't Take Long: Mark Driscoll's Comeback Tour Began Last Night.
Wow...he has "cried a lot lately." I guess we really do live in a "pussified nation."

What a worthless douche-bag. Please fade into meaningless obscurity as quickly as possible.

"Comedy said the FBI is tracking over 100 American citizens who have either gone to Syria and stayed"

Funny what an errant d can do to a name.
