"I feel like the chief export of Seattle right now is Kshama Sawant editorials."

!!!

No. No. Seattle's chief export is not Kshama Sawant or her editorials. She's a minority party politician. She does not set Seattle's agenda. She does not get ordinances passed. She is just one council member.

The reason she has influence is because the other 8 council members and the mayor *choose* to let her be influential. They choose to avoid the spotlight, and avoid credit or blame for whatever happens. They like pretending that Kshama runs the city. The real story isn't Sawant. The story is *why* these 9 Democrats let things play out this way. It raises serious questions, whether it's Machiavellian intent or gross incompetence. What is UP, Seattle Democrats?

But pretend is just pretend. If you think Kshama Sawant is Seattle's chief export, you need to get out more. Maybe notice the massive national impact of the actions of AG Bob Ferguson, a Seattle native and long time Seattle politician. Also notable: Steve Ballmer, Jeff Bezos.

I think Sawant is important *because of how much influence the other council members cede to her*. But take that away? What have you got? A Socialist with aspirations to increase her party's elected officials by 100%, by electing one more Socialist.

Jesus you guys just repeat the same anti-Kshama memes that failed to stop her from beating Richard Conlin in 2013 and (just to prove it wasn't a fluke) failed again in 2015. A lot of the reasons you haters hate her are the reasons why people vote for her. Much of your loathing is founded on the premise that she is the most powerful, most important politician in Seattle. How's that line of attack working out for you?

Sawant is going to stay on the Council as long as she cares to, if you guys have anything to say about it. Sad!

Seattle does have an especially large dog population, and trees...? How often do you even see a tree in Seattle? Never. Dogs killed them all. Case closed.

Next the Stranger will remind you dogs in restaurants give everyone horrific diseases. Norm's allows dogs, which is why everyone who ever went to Norms is now dead. We all see they're dead with our own eyes. Dogs.

Case closed.

"Imagine how much low-income housing we could build if..." Sawant hasn't spent 20 minutes writing this letter, and instead spent an additional 20 minutes of her time working to get affordable housing built. I estimate that would translate into at least 5,000 additional units.

I bet if Sawant could get by on one less hour of sleep, we'd see more than 15,000 additional units constructed. That's per DAY people.

God. When you think about it, this football letter is the most selfish thing Sawant could do. She's basically evil incarnate, what with her power to fix all the bad things, provided she never fritters away any of her omnipotent minutes. Yeah.

If Sawant is so terrible what does that say about all of those who can't unseat her? Oh, wait. It's because Seattle voters are so terrible. Got it. You hate democracy, because any random idiot with a pulse can vote. While you're here participating in an anonymous public forum. Where any random idiot can try to persuade other random idiots. For the purpose of...?

Just fuck off, troll.

When Obama was in power they yearn for a successful terrorist attack to show Democrats can't protect America. When Republicans are in power, the want terrorists to succeed as an excuse for their fascist agenda. Conservatives and Al Qaeda thrive on murdered Americans.

The old SPD would have put business cards in these guys' hands besides just arresting them.

Every time Republicans stand by Trump, they hang his deeds around their own neck. Keep demanding they act. Keep demanding impeachment. Let them keep refusing. They're digging their own grave.

I have all kinds of loose accessories attached to my bike. They're always there. I suppose the day will come around when somebody takes my tire patches or something but thats a small price to pay for years of not having to unhook or lock up all that shit every time I stop.

There's just not that much crime any more, except on TV.
