@21, I'm all for gay rights. Perhaps it's because I respect the whole Constitution, instead of cherry picking the parts I like while disparaging the parts I dislike.

What Ferguson refuses to understand is that a rifle gave that dipshit in Mukilteo no further lethality than he would have had with a pistol. It's not like he was Anders Breivik, killing people by the dozen.

I used to think that being so openly hostile to gun owners was a great way to commit political suicide, but I don't know anymore. Our state gets bluer and bluer. We get more like California every day.

Regardless of the outcome, I was smart and already bought the weapons I wanted, so any bans that come to pass will be too late to restrain me. Ferguson and his allies can suck my ass.

So apparently the Stranger disapproves of couples who like the peace and quiet of living in their own home, and who don't want to subject themselves to live-in tenants.

Shame them! Tax them! Drive them out of the city!

Or maybe you should do the same thing that you're always telling social conservatives to do with regards to alternative lifestyles: MYOFB.

This would be amusing if it weren't so sad. Did the Rices not know that the San Juans are probably the most NIMBY rural environment in the entire state? Not to mention that the neighbors all have substantial resources to engage you in whatever legal battle suits their fancy.

They might as well have tried to establish a grow op on Mercer Island.

Yeah, if you think 2016 was sad, you need to try 1943, 1916, 1809, or the granddaddy of all sad years, 1350.

Thomas Frank and Robert Reich are American treasures. Fellow coasties, take their words to heart. If you run another candidate who ignores Flyover America in 2020, Trump will be a two-term President like those goons Reagan and W before him.

Cressona, your repeated inferences of bad faith from those who oppose you on this issue is getting tiresome.

Give people some credit and quit being a fucking troll.

"And 800,000 new people are expected in the region by 2040."

Then they or the employers who are attracting them can pay for ST3 by imposing an enormous head tax on companies located in dense urban development. Collect $10K/year from Amazon, Vulcan, et al on every employee in South Lake Union. Tax the shit out of every business located in the cores of Seattle, Bellevue, and Redmond, because their dense corporate campuses create our traffic problems.

Building this much transit without significant federal investment is foolish. Stupid. Ridiculous. Patty Murray is the 4th ranking Democratic Senator. As soon as the Feds pony up for 25-50% of the cost, then it might make sense for us to tax ourselves. Until then, nope.

It isn't the job of the people who live here to subsidize building transit for people who will only move here if they can get to work, especially not at $1000 per household per year. A policy of unfettered urban growth imposes enormous costs upon people who've lived here for decades, to benefit the newcomers with their new money.

Vote no.

Much more class than the Stranger showed her. I voted for Reykdahl in the primary but will vote Jones in the general.
