It never ceases to amaze me how, like clockwork, someone troll comments on a thread about soccer on what a stupid and boring game it is. What is it about the game that threatens you so?
Mar 19, 2015 jefe commented on The Mayor Wants You to Fund a Huge Property Tax Levy for Transportation. Here’s What It’ll Buy..
I'll probably vote for it, but am concerned about all of these property tax levies. I bought a house in North Seattle ten years ago. Since then, my property taxes have gone up 30% due to new levies and reassessments. What was once a pmostly middle-class area with small houses is now upper/high class. I don't have a huge problem with the change - what I have a problem with is my neighbors paying about the same/slightly higher property taxes while they make three times (or more) what I make. We need an income tax, now.

@31. No. Sorry. Your explanation still infers that he was figuratively asking for it.

@3 - I think you underestimate the power of the proverbial train wreck.

The Soundgarden is "super boring"? You've obviously never been there when the wind is just right.

FWIW - Had a medical appointment at a UW Physicians clinic today and my doctor said they had an Ebola drill earlier - someone came in with symptoms and said they were travelling in West Africa. The staff was then judged on their response.

I saw three tourists riding Pronto down near the waterfront yesterday, helmet-less as a newborn baby. I don't think it will be a barrier - I'll believe an SPD crackdown on bike infractions when I see it.
Aug 7, 2014 jefe commented on City Attorney Hopes People Who Got Pot Tickets "Do Not Pay Them".
I believe that if you do not pay these tickets, they get sent to a collections agency, which hurts your credit history and results in fun phone calls to you and your family. Not sure if I would follow Petey's advice on this one. @10 is right - contest them.
Jul 30, 2014 jefe commented on BREAKING: Vast Majority of All Seattle Pot Tickets Written by Same Officer.
@54 nailed it. The "attention petey holmes" written on the vast majority of tickets, as well as things like "allowed to keep his dope per our silly protocols" is the main issue here (questions of disproportionality aside - a problem with most all crimes). Message from the Chief to the rank and file, IMO - be professional or get the fuck out.

It does seem odd that we have a law that only one cop enforces....if that's the case, why even have that law?
