Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Hell, last time the dems were fully in charge they used that power to reinstate I-747.

Our legislators seem really good at talking about this problem, and really bad at actually trying to do something about it.

Until we get some new leadership in the party, I don't see that changing.

@6 Oh please. People have been protesting about police misconduct for years and have accomplished little to nothing. Same with almost every issue people protest about.

It's a goddamn waste of time and energy.

On one hand inconveniencing shoppers is hardly a big deal, but on the other I fail to see how this actually accomplishes anything.

Minds are not being changed, nor are laws. We aren't running any candidates or even an initiative. There seems to be no real strategy or goal aside from protest protest protest with the occasional downtown campout. Featuring the exact same people and groups doing the exact same things they did last time.

Meanwhile the Teabaggers, in four short years, have achieved more than the far left has in four decades.

We need a new fucking strategy.

What a fucking waste of time.
Oct 31, 2014 giffy commented on Why Are Museum Admission Prices So Confusing?.
@11 I don't think you need to make people prove it, or even explain it. Simply stating that the option is designed for people who cannot afford it should be enough to discourage a lot of abuse.
Oct 30, 2014 giffy commented on Why Are Museum Admission Prices So Confusing?.
I think if they were more explicit about it being for poor people, less people would try and take advantage.

For example:
"Guests with limited means may pay whatever they can afford".

Telling people a price is suggested invites negotiation or just being cheap. Making it a low income only rate makes people go an extra step and lie, which fewer are willing to do. No different from a senior or student rate.

Sep 12, 2014 giffy commented on Mayor Murray Announces Millions for More Cops and Homeless.
@20 No, they ask for what the few people who attend their meetings want. People who likely have zero understanding of the broader social problems that cause the problems they see.

Murray has it exactly backwards. It's not that we can't afford to help the homeless because we need more cops, it's that we need more cops because we don't help the homeless.

At least Ryanair actually is dirt cheap. They'll take you to and from about anywhere in Europe for less than it costs to fly from here to Spokane. If I'm only spending 50 bucks on a flight I can bring my own damn food. Or just not eat for a few hours.

The problem with US carriers is that they are both low quality and high price.

Hooray for meaningless political gestures!

I'm sure the Obama Admin will be shocked to learn that the City of Seattle is pro choice.
