I can imagine voting for an anti-choice Democrat in an election where the opponent was an anti-choice Republican. Painful, but okay.

I cannot imagine endorsing or stumping for that candidate though.
Apr 13 tiktok commented on Seattle Times Editorial Board to Ed Murray: Drop Out Before Nikkita Oliver Ends Up Mayor.
Murray dropping out would just lead to a more "business-friendly" "Democrat" becoming mayor. Oliver has no chance of winning a mayoral race with her experience.
A council seat, maybe.
Mar 3 tiktok commented on New Survey Finds Most People Experiencing Homelessness in Seattle Were Already Here When They Became Homeless.
@6: A bunch of people would be helped, but in any system there's always going to be a percentage of folks who won't/can't follow the rules and will get "bounced". Those folks will remain on the streets until they die or are forcibly incarcerated.

I'm not saying we shouldn't "take a lesson from the bathhouses", mind you. A lot of people would be helped and off the streets.
Mar 1 tiktok commented on The Morning News: Trump's Speech and a Local Effort to "Trump-Proof" Seattle with an Income Tax.
@12: You do realize that the purpose behind the proposed state income tax is to increase tax revenue in a less regressive, more widely distributed manner, not for *your* taxes to go down and someone else to pick up the slack, right?

@12: In twenty years or so, the non-Establishment Liberals may be a national force--as in, viable presidential campaigns, significant representation in Congress, Governorships, state legislatures. As long as they make sure that the Establishment Liberals and those funding sources don't follow them to the new party. And that this new party doubles in membership.

What viruses do 2016-2017 flu vaccines protect against?

There are many flu viruses and they are constantly changing. The composition of U.S. flu vaccines is reviewed annually and updated to match circulating flu viruses. Flu vaccines protect against the three or four viruses that research suggests will be most common. For 2016-2017, three-component vaccines are recommended to contain:

A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus,
A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus and a
B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus (B/Victoria lineage).
Four component vaccines are recommended to include the same three viruses above, plus an additional B virus called B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus (B/Yamagata lineage).
