Oct 23, 2015 Reality Check commented on A Short, Really Depressing Documentary About the Housing Crisis in the Bay Area (and How It's Affecting Seattle).
This is all being exacerbated by the Chinese being allowed to invest in US and Canadian real estate. This is all about ghost housing being used for Chinese piggy banks, and to establish an anchor in our markets. The issue would correct itself if you mandated a citizenship requirement to purchase a home, or alternatively required double yearly taxation for any home not actively occupied, combined with an yearly investment tax of 50% of assessed value. This kind of situation shows that local governments do NOT care for their actual citizens, and instead favor the uber wealthy and foreign interests.
Jul 17, 2015 Reality Check commented on Watch Hillary Get Heckled About Climate Change Yesterday in Dover, New Hampshire.
Hillary is losing Democratic voters. Hemorrhaging them in fact at this rate. People are flocking to Bernie, and if she keeps it up she's toast. Hillary is the same status quo BS politician we've had over and over, and that is NOT playing well this election cycle. People are very dissatisfied with choice from both mainstream parties. @9 nails it. Hillary staffers have to be able to see the trendline.

Jul 17, 2015 Reality Check commented on Leaders Wring Hands Over Youth Violence in Seattle; Mayor Dodges Question on Expanding Violence Prevention Programs.
Why not install 500 identical cameras, with only 50 of them being actually hooked up and working, and the other 450 dummy cameras? Announce either that the real cameras would rotate amongst locations, and/or that the locations of the real ones would not be disclosed. Place the cameras only in areas that have seen a violent crime in the past year, to inundate the area with the perception of total surveillance. The entire project would be under 100,000.
Jan 19, 2014 Reality Check commented on Saving Metro Won't Be Pretty.
Maybe we should also be looking at WHY Metro is continuously underfunded? Was there not an investigative story a year or so ago that showed LOTS of metro bus drivers made more than $75,000 per year, with at least 5 making over $150,000 to drive a fucking bus? Start by looking at ALL salaries of Metro and cut them in HALF! Problem solved.
Jun 29, 2013 Reality Check commented on If They Can't Make Money in Phoenix, Why the Hell Would the Coyotes Want to Play at KeyArena?.
Hockey will not come to Seattle. Hockey will come to Bellevue. Bellevue is where all the money is, and where the majority of the fan base resides that skews towards hockey fans. Now that basketball is a pipe dream, SODO is not nearly as relevent a priority location for an arena. Bellevue/Redmond represents a MUCH deeper pocketed fan base compared to the fan base of south Seattle.
Sep 24, 2012 Reality Check commented on Seahawks Win! (Thanks, Greedy Union-Busting NFL Owners and Your Embarrassing Replacement Refs!).
@25 Jesus fuck you are a blathering idiot!

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 5 of the NFL rulebook discusses a simultaneous catch.

"If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control," the rule states.

Jennings gained control first. That should have ended the game.

I won't even discuss the blatant offensive PI a split second sooner that was missed. Two hands shoved into GB defender sending him sprawling. Game over right there prior to any ball possession.

@17 why just a month?

Fire this moron already. Charles needs to go. Yesterday.
Oct 3, 2011 Reality Check commented on On October 3, 1995 the Jury finds O.J. Simpson not Guilty.
@13 there was no "suspected". He was on video on numerous occasions committing treason against the United States. He could have had a speedy trial in absentia with the same findings.
