Where is Comrade Oleg and his beet ration when we need them?

Which will likely be met with the same result as the Austin, Tx woman who voted for every tax increase put forward and then complained that she couldn't afford to live there.

This, apparently, was because someone, who wasn't the lady in the mirror, wasn't "looking at the big picture".

I hear that lunch is free in Seattle.

There is just one drawback. There is no place to get it.

Heh :)

That's exactly what I thought of when reading this!

The next law proposed in Seattle will be for businesses to sign loyalty oaths stating that any price increase were not due to the minimum wage laws.

We've already done it with ObamaCare.

Well to be fair, if they weren't all racist partisans who want to destroy America, they wouldn't feel the need to air the kind of dissenting views that were the very lifeblood of a robust democracy just a few short years ago.

Srsly, dude.

I'm just hoping that Austin transitioning to single-member districts will help put the kibosh on a lot of these stupid bond proposals that end up on the ballot. The city council - under the all at-large positions configuration - has pretty much been dominated by downtown white and Hispanic liberals. The conservatives and the African-American populations haven't really been represented at all...

Hi Allen,
Many opportunities for a free lunch in Seattle.
An affordable place to live, *no.*
