    Should we be basing ANYTHING on Allegations?

    Or perhaps we should at least wait for a Grand Jury Inditement, or perhaps an actual court Conviction, or accused confession?
    Not often I'll be found agreeing with a kurmugeon, and so off to the personal inventory salt-mine with BP for yet another round of self-introspection.

    Thanks... thanks a lot.

    How many accusations does someone get before they have to resign?

    Oregon Child Protective Services knew this guy was a child molester in the 80's and he still was able to get elected mayor.
    "...helping sexual assault survivors also includes addressing the root causes of abuse: poverty, social isolation, and the immense power disparities that plague this highly unequal and deeply oppressive capitalist society." - Kshama Sawant, Seattle City Council Member

    This lady is fucking insane. And she's no mere fringe nutter, as the Washington State GOP chair Susan Hutchinson said, she is the tail that wags the dog in Seattle right now, and is even wielding significant influence over Democrats in Olympia. She is an actual Marxist convincing Seattle to experiment with itself by trying out Marxist style policies on a municipal level. It's no wonder Amazon is looking to headquarter elsewhere. Wouldn't you, if you ran a business in a city whose elected leaders publicly held you in utter contempt and at fault for everything all the time?

    It's inexcusable that a supposed economics PhD like Sawant would act so oblivious to risks of capital flight in a place like Seattle. No concept of how much the city stands to lose by massive firms fleeing the extremist anti-business environment she is working so hard to create there. And then she spits on them on their way out the door. For example:

    “Amazon's quest for a second massive corporate base is reminiscent of Boeing's ongoing efforts to ship jobs out of the Seattle area and hold us hostage. For decades, Boeing executives and billionaire shareholders have carried out systematic economic extortion by pitting cities and states against one another, forcing a race to the bottom for the living standards of workers, and crushing labor unions,” she wrote in a statement.

    “The workers should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,”


    Don't worry about Ed or his replacement (Seattle unions have already chosen Durkan to be the replacement, so that's a done deal). Seattleites should focus next on promptly getting Sawant the fuck out of office. She couldn't be worse.

    At least Sawant was calling on Murray to resign.

    So technically she could be a tiny slightly bit worse in theory, were that not the case.

    I don't disagree there. But him being a pedophile supersedes everything else.

    No it wasn't. The case was DROPPED because the woman wouldn't go through with the case. She was terrorized. UNLESS there is more than one.
