Socialists (well Marxists really) doing their best to drive the brightest lights out of Seattle by enforcing a “head” tax of $500 per full-time employee on any company that makes over $20m.

In order to solve a housing crisis its own bullheaded and heavy handed policies created yet with no plan or accountability on how they’ll actually solve the problem.

GG Seattle! Amazon was already looking for another HQ, Boeing already move a ton of what they had in the area, and Microsoft has been antsy for years (thanks to limitations on how they aren’t able to build up above 4 or 5 stories in many areas so they don’t ruin the skyline, instead they can only sprawl out at HUGE expense). Now they want to charge everyone an additional $500 a year.

These are companies with 10s of thousands of employees that are keeping the economy in that state afloat!

Of course they are also the ones voting for the self-same city council members, mayors, local, state, and regional politicians who think up this crazy shit... I guess some of them get what they paid for...

Just another example of how the rank and file leftists feel that everyone is owed something that belongs to other people, be it money, time, expertise, labor, etc.

Seattle...filled with stupid progressives, lol.

Seattle, 2/2017 - Wells Fargo, you're funding the Dakota Access Pipeline? We're cutting ties with you when our contract expires in 2018! <cheers from proggies for virtue signalling!>

Seattle, 5/2018 - Wells Fargo, we're signing another three year contract with you because nobody else will take our business! <crickets from proggies because best we ignore it>



Oh, and btw Seattle (lol!): " More than a dozen banks are connected to the pipeline, including CitiBank, I-N-G, Chase and Bank of America."

Woopsie.

The Air Force is forced to apologize for an insensitive tweet after highlighting their participation and collaboration (via the amazing A-10) with Afgan forces in fighting off a brutal Taliban attack of the town of Farah in Afghanistan.

Here's the original tweet which has since been deleted.

What about the innocents you murder by "mistake"? What would they rather hear? You guys need someone on your PR crew who isn't a sociopath.

Let's make jokes out of murder!
Personally, I am all for watching the Taliban get their ass handed to them. Especially when it's a majority Afgan force doing the handing.

These people need to figure out weapon systems like the A-10 are purpose built for things that aren't so pretty and nice and being used by people willing to do the not so pretty and nice stuff so these asshats could complain about the ugly things that are usually out of sight and out of mind.

Screw just freedom. If that's not good enough for them let's just consider there are bad, bad people who would just love the chance to see America has lost its level of vigilance. America is being tested every day and it's dumbasses like these who don't realize the repercussions if we fail a test.

Stuff like the A-10 engagements and helping Afgan forces in Farah, fighting back against the Taliban, bombing Syria, and pissing contests with North Korea (granted, perhaps ill-advised in tone) are necessary.

lol.

Progressives: No wiretapping, no spying, no unmasking of Trump team.
Reality: Dems did all three under Obama's administration. For his own good! That's exactly what they would have said had Bush done the same to Obama's campaign, lol. EXACTLY!

Democrat Dictionary:

1) Illegal Immigrants - Dreamers
2) Trump Supporters - Deplorables
3) MS-13 Killers - Human Beings
4) Human Beings in the Womb - Not Human Beings
5) Hamas Terrorists - Protestors
6) Law Abiding NRA Members - Terrorists

lololololololololololol!!!

Last year the University of Michigan unveiled it's 85 MILLION dollar 5 year plan to improve it's diversity.

Whatever that means. I guess if you aren't legal, or are poor, and maybe aren't male (today, we'll check back with you tomorrow), you win in the diversity lotto! The one common factor is you can't be white. Though I am not sure how it works with Trans-racial folks, we need to be sensitive people!

Now we know how they are going to spend that 85 million dollars. At least 11 million a year will go into salaries for their bloated diversity and inclusion department.

90 people and 11 million dollars a year are going into salaries so students can feel better about themselves and how they been done bad by life! Instead of into programs to make them smarter and more competitive once they get out of school. Or to give them better food or nicer dorms or, god forbid, get rid of 100 pure overhead administrative staff and lower the cost of tuition across to board for everyone! The head of the program makes $400k all by himself!

And this is just for their Ann Arbor campus!
