Sep 13 kk in seattle commented on ICYMI: Anti-Obama Stickers Removed From SPD North Precinct.
Hurray for workplace censorship!
Sep 11 kk in seattle commented on Crude Anti-Obama Stickers Seen on Lockers During Tour of Police North Precinct.
If they're allowed to have stickers, obviously the City cannot ban certain stickers based on the content of the speech in the stickers. The easiest solution to most of the issues that stem from being policed by an occupation force is to require that the police we pay with our taxes be residents of our city. If we need to provide for second mortgage or rental assistance, so be it. The savings from one or two wrongful death lawsuits could probably house half the force.

Wouldn't it be easier for the City just to take over Amazon? Means of production and all that. Then we could put their workers wherever we want without worrying about traffic.
Sep 3 kk in seattle commented on Here Are 6 Reasons Why Trigger Warnings Aren't Bullshit..
My takeaway from this is that our campuses are rife with professors who teach their classes "without telling anybody that you're going to spring rape or bloody battles or torture on your students. Because you are a dick who gets off on the shock effect." Also, that these professors tell women who have just been raped to "shut the fuck up about it, take care of yourself and don't expect anyone else to give a shit."

If this is the problem, I'm not sure that trigger warnings for students who can't google the syllabus is the solution.

Bertha is a disaster but a Seattle subway will be completely different.
Jul 21 kk in seattle commented on Seattle Police Union Votes Down City's Contract Offer.
The first issue on the table ought to be a requirement that the police live in the city. We pay their salaries. We don't need an occupying force from Arlington, Monroe, Maple Valley and Puyallup treating us as animals. If we need to provide rental assistance or a second-mortgage program as part of the compensation, better yet.
Jun 21 kk in seattle commented on Anne Graham Lotz's Youth Pastor Watch.
If a black preacher says God will damn America then that justifies having a white supremacist president. If a white preacher says God will damn America then that justifies saying Amen!
Jun 21 kk in seattle commented on Let's Talk About that Seattle Times Editorial Claiming Sound Transit Should "Slow Down" on New Light Rail.
So bizarre to argue that 2036 is "forever." It's only 20 years. Sound Transit itself is only 20 years. We've only been at this mass rapid transit thing for 20 years and already we're supposed to quit? We've got a fair amount done in 20 years, why would we quit now?
Jun 21 kk in seattle commented on Eight Days After Orlando Shooting, Senate Rejects Gun Restrictions.
What @23 said. Just because we unconstitutionally deprive people of their right to travel doesn't mean we should pile on more unconstitutional deprivations without due process. Yes, we should ban assault weapons (again). No, we should not in any manner defend--let alone exacerbate--the no-fly list until it comports with due process.
