Apr 30 Nick CapHill commented on The Seattle Times Says Kshama Sawant Needs to Apologize to Her New Council Colleague. Should She?.
I dont like Sawants politics. But using derogatory words for women to discredit her is just lazy and offensive.

I would rather hear a good critique of Sawant and her politics than just calling her misogynist words.

@22. Tankie is just a slang term for everyone advocating Stalin/Lennon/Trotsky authoritarian ideals. Tankies disagree with each other too. But make no mistake, she believes in authoritarian structures and Trotsky.

Also, I think SEIU and unions had more to do with minimum wage raise than the Trotskyist-Socialists ever did.

But I will credit her for being one of the most visible players.

She has no need to apologize. She is a Tankie after all. She believes in some arcane Trotskyist Socialist philosophy left over from before the wall came down. Authoritarian in the true sense of statist.

Way to go Seattle, you elected a Tankie.
Apr 29 Nick CapHill commented on The City Council Is So Over Being Nice to Kshama Sawant.
I am so surprised that Sawant survived for so long. She is a Tankie after all. She believes in some arcane Trotskyist Socialist philosophy left over from before the wall came down.

Way to go Seattle, you elected a Tankie.
Sep 23, 2014 Nick CapHill commented on In New York, Sawant Calls for Energy Corporations to Be Nationalized.
I bet you nationalizing energy corporations will go as well as nationalizing the control of the value of the dollar, healthcare, social security funds, USPS, and mortgage backing.

Which are all pretty much doomed for failure once I hit retirement age.
Jul 28, 2014 Nick CapHill commented on Guest Editorial: The Rent Is Too Damn High, Let's Get It Under Control.
Here we go again. Spears is a graduated economists that does not understand the economy - nor looks at plain examples of centralized control of the economy and how they have not succeeded. Especially with rent control.

"Market forces will tend to invest in high-end housing first... Research shows that new construction of expensive apartments doesn't generate affordable housing, and some experts think it may even be pushing rents higher"

At least she says something here that is somewhat meaningful. Affordable rent is a problem of aging housing. IN that "affordable" rent problem started happening long before Spears was out of diapers. Restrictive Seattle zoning laws, and a boom in urban inward flight creates the problem. As buildings age, you have cheaper rent.

Rent control will prohibit new construction, thus contributing to the problem years down the road.

Seattle is on the right track. We are still licking our wounds from a boom in population. Lets not cause more wounds.

Does Spears really want to up another government bureaucracy that somehow thinks that it can properly control the complex and hugely different market of rent? The Rental Market is an incredibly detailed and huge market with vastly different types of housing, types of needs. To think that somehow some central authority can regulate this properly is, well, absurd. This *IS* the definition of "NANNY STATE".

Laughable.

Jul 23, 2014 Nick CapHill commented on Seattle City Council Asks Feds to Ban Unsafe Oil Tanker Cars Immediately.
IF we understand that tap water is safer and cheaper than bottled water, we can then extrapolate that piped oil will also be safer and cheaper than transported oil.

Case in point above.
Jul 22, 2014 Nick CapHill commented on Referendum on the $15 Minimum Wage Will Not Go to the Ballot This Year.
@84 - It would seem you are suggesting that YOU have the right to put a value on your work, but that those paying for your work do not have that right. I can see how an authoritarian socialist economy would serve you well.

With the direction that Seattle is going in, it makes me wonder if my dream of becoming a triangle player for an orchestra was given-up too early in life.
