The Establishment is "fixing" the federal deficit.
May 2 The Establishment commented on Sound Transit Spared for Now in Federal Budget Bloodbath.
The proposed HSR funding was one of the most exciting things about the Obama administration for me, personally. It finally felt like we were going to build for our future, something tangible that would fundamentally change how we live and move. Instead the Republicans obstructed every possible move towards improving our lives in a craven attempt to damage Obama politically, to prevent him from having the political victory of providing a benefit to our citizenry.

Fuck Republicans.

@1 @3 Astroturfing. Astroturfing everywhere!
Apr 17 The Establishment commented on Mike McGinn Is Running for Mayor Again.
@27 As I recall, there was a good deal of criticism towards McGinn from progressives due to his response to the local OWS demonstrations, and general handling of police use of force, etc. His support from the left was greatly eroded because of the perception he was coddling SPD in the face of heightened sentiment for reform, and helping to slow/prevent implementation of the consent decree.
Apr 13 The Establishment commented on Washington State Dems (Not the GOP) Unanimously Attack Transit Funding.
@21 I was waiting for that. People are so uninformed, it's embarrassing.
Mar 23 The Establishment commented on Where Trumpcare Will Hurt Most in Washington State.
@6 lol wut? There is no indication what differences the colors are supposed to depict. % of votes for Trump in each district? % of district population that will lose coverage? % of Trump voters on Medicare in each district? There's no way to know, because there is no key.

@3 It's just socially acceptable shorthand for signalling that they're racist. Carry on.
