Capitalism is failing

Capitalism has always been failing

Capitalism will still be failing long after you are dead

There is no need to think at all about any economic news, once you have firmly convinced yourself that capitalism is failing. All evidence is evidence of Capitalism's imminent failure. All news is bad news for Capitalism. Capitalism will die very soon now, just you wait and see.

You seem kinda lonely. Did your friends stop pretending to pay attention when you talk to them about this stuff?

It's 2017, and still The Socialist predicts the imminent collapse of Capitalism.

It is right around the corner, just as it has always been, and just as it will always be.

Seattleites voted 87% Clinton and 8% Trump, so you might want to find something else to scold them for.

Speaking to KUOW late last year, Oliver called for a model that would eventually lead to the elimination of police entirely. “We don’t need a separate institution to keep the peace or enforce the laws,” she said. “What we need is a cultural shift that actually acknowledges the human rights, dignity and sovereignty of all people, and we’d see a decrease in crime.”

I've actually spent quite a lot of time in Pacific and Grey's harbor, but apparently unlike you, I've also spent a lot of time talking to the people who live there. And I stand by my statement.

Maybe you get a different picture when you just drive past them and gawp at their poverty while you're en route to your surfing spot or whatever... or maybe you're such an insufferable dick that no-one who lives out on the coast has ever offered you weed?

About half of the counties in WA voted for Obama.

The geography of the political divide in WA maps to the Cascade crest, not the Seattle city limits.

Based on the quotes from business owners in the article, it sounds like these line-items ought to be labelled "profit margin surcharge," not "living wage surcharge" or similar.
