Seattle Times lately is pushing out an ST3 tax increase calculator for property, sales and RTA tax. It only shows your estimated increase (I get $1250), not your current estimated tax bill. They also don't break it down by category. Current car tabs and property tax are easy to look up, sales tax not so much.

While it doesn't matter much to the ol' budget, it would be interesting to know what percent increase this represents. Anyone know what method they're using to estimate sales tax based on household income?

Larger question: is their calculation worth shit for accuracy?

That word, credibly, I do not think it means what you think it means.

Perhaps you would enjoy "credulous" more?

I lived in SF from early '92 to mid '94, and Savage Love was in one of the free weeklies for a chunk of that time. Probably kinda sorta roughly half, but I really don't remember specifically

In the immortal words of the fucking brat on The Simpsons, HA HAAAAA!

How 'bout just not being addicted to nicotine, idiots?

Despite Charles' attempt to gin up a "controversy" around Cliff Mass, his blogs latest post ends with this:

"I strongly support I-732, the revenue-neutral carbon tax swap, which help reduce Washington State's greenhouse gas emissions, make our tax system less regressive, and potentially serve as a potent bipartisan model for the rest of the nation. More information here. I will be talking about I-732 on Sunday, October 16th at 11 AM at the Unitarian Church in Edmonds."

...and the week leads off with this:

ACTUAL climate change denier kooks piled up in the comments. Mass is not the problem.

Hey, I'll bet >90% of heroin addicts first used an addictive drug in the form of cigarettes. Ban tobacco, no more junkies! QED.

Last night's results mean the SECB can now come to its senses and switch the endorsement to Reykdal in the general. Erin Jones is a religious nut and a tool of the billionaire education "reformers." Totally wrong for Seattle. Try to look past ethnicity this time.

At least Trump gets to use one of his favorite tag lines on the speechwriter.

Is #RNCinCLEfuckers a thing yet? Or am I the only one confused enough to see "runcle" in RNCinCLE?

Saw one of those Hilary for Prison signs in Roslyn last week. All Trump signs in Kittitas County except on old Obama sticker on a Subaru bumper in the driveway of the nicest house in Roslyn.

Alex Jones? 'Nuf said.
