commented on Football Season Is Upon Us: Here's What Seattle Is About To Look Like
God damn it, could someone please find Nate Gowdy's computer and delete that fucking barf-inducing filter? It looks like some asshole just discovered a processing technique that makes his photos look SUPER PROFESSIONAL AND HISTORIC and decided to apply it to EVERY FUCKING THING EVER. "Hey Nate, can we see your baby photos? OH GOD WHY DOES SHE LOOK SWEATY AND GRITTY AND JESUS CHRIST WE DON'T NEED TO SEE EVERY PORE ON HER FACE"
commented on Council Member Lorena González on the Vastly Different Narratives Surrounding the Che Taylor Shooting
"González she said she believes the starkly different narratives ultimately reflect a lack of community trust in the police department." No fucking shit, folks. Regardless of the facts of this particular case, we have arrived at a situation where the cops shoot a known felon carrying a lot of drugs, and many people immediately wonder if it was a set-up. Why is it that we're so skeptical of the cops' story? Perhaps it's because people are wary of the "no cop should ever be punished" SPOG situation.

commented on Seattle Police Union Calls Top Civilian Oversight Official a "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing"
A cop union that opposes all disciplinary action and termination is corrupt by definition unless it thinks all its cops are perfect, which they demonstrably are not. When was the last time they said, "yeah, that cop needs firing"? Ever?
It makes me laugh to hear bad cops complain that they're not getting "fairness" and "justice". Clean house. We can only hope the city wakes up and realizes it needs to take a giant dump in your mouth during the next contract negotiations.
Keep fighting reasonable oversight and you'll eventually find your corrupt little guild disbanded.
commented on Tom Douglas Announces He'll Eliminate Tipping and Raise Wages to $15 an Hour on February 1
Tipping does not provide the magical feedback the "incentive to provide good service" crowd thinks it does. Leaving a shitty tip basically never sends the message "you would get a better tip if you gave better service," it sends one of the following messages:
* I am a cheapskate
* I'm in a bad mood
* The food sucked
* I hated my table
* I am bad at math
* I saw another employee being rude/unsanitary/whatever and wanted to register my disgust
* I have unrealistically high expectations about what constitutes 'good service'
* You aren't very attractive and I'm a dick that way
* Someone walked off with the cash I left at the table
* maybe, just maybe, you provided bad service
There are so many ways in which the server can tell themselves that a bad tip is not their fault. How often do you think a server gets a bad tip and thinks, "hey, I should really up my game" as opposed to "what an asshole"?
Down with tips.
