Fuck, this is awful. It seems like they just want houseless people to cease existing. The council should definitely have to tear down the encampment themselves if they go that way.

Oh man, poor kid's probably gay, and will never get a date after this.
Apr 4, 2013 Oscar M commented on Neighbors Ask the City to Evict Nickelsville.
Jeez, his letter is awful. HPAC fails to see houseless people as people with legitimate homes and needs for stability. Their pseudo-concern that everyone have safe shelter is followed by a call for "aggressive bag-and-tag." Fuck, we're talking about human beings, not waterfowl.

Does Kleiman's estimate include allowances for untaxed black market pot?
Mar 22, 2013 Oscar M commented on Seattle Needs to Welcome Growth and Get Over Itself.
Constructing new buildings isn't value free: it often displaces people along race and class lines. There is a human cost to when people are priced out of our homes by increases in real estate values, and as rental properties get sold to developers. Even the term "development" is a pretension that the land is currently lying fallow, undeveloped, when it's already serving the purpose of housing people.

He thinks all voters in King County are stupid. 
How stupid? Stupid enough to vote for him..
Above, you say "it is our nearly two-to-one Democratic advantage that keeps Washington reliably, if modestly, blue." Is that intended to say "Olympia" instead of "Washington"
