Meanwhile the apartment vacancy rate in my neighbourhood is 2% and rent increases average 10% a year.
Sales of new homes dropped sharply last month, falling 14.5% to their weakest level since mid-2013.

Well, the woman in the article who said the Micro$osft bus blocks her route won't have to worry, because her route's going to be cut. Maybe she can buy a car! After all, poor people will now be able to afford cars, fuel, license, insurance, &c now that they won't have to pay a $60 fee.

Meanwhile the bike lanes on Broadway are constantly fucking empty, but I don't see anyone complain about that....wonder how much those cost.

What's good for Boeing is good for Seattle!....OH WAIT.
Boeing's increased rate of commercial jet manufacturing is starting to pay off for shareholders.

$125M for the goddamn tunnel but no money for buses. Great job!
The project director for drilling the tunnel said the $125 million was based on restarting Bertha by Sept. 1, which was Seattle Tunnel Partners’ earlier, optimistic goal.

Peterson and CBO aren’t talking fiscal responsibility. They’re talking the ultimate in fiscal irresponsibility, which is using myths and fairy tales to pursue and defend policies that create and maintain a stagnant economy, and at the end of the road, when the 99% become so poor they can no longer sustain the minimal level of demand needed to maintain the stagnation, a recession or depression.
By Joe Firestone Recently, I've been writing about oligarchs advocating for entitlement cuts and austerity. I've discussed attacks on entitlement benefits for the elderly from Abby Huntsman (of MSNBC's The Cycle) and Catherine Rampell (a Washington Post

Why can't we have a Seattle-only initiative, since Seattle is the ENGINE of the state economy? Uh, because no!

Amazon going after Netflix. That's great. I love America. I love big business.
The agreement, seen as a boost to Amazon in its rivalry with Netflix and Hulu, makes some popular HBO programs available to Amazon Prime members. It also brings the HBO Go streaming service to Amazon’s new Fire TV device.

Job transfers will be good for Boeing!.....probably not for SEATTLE, tho. Good thing they got that $9M state tax break! including the biggest federal tax refund ever. Oh and not paying federal taxes. Gee, I wonder why the infrastructure of this company is in such bad shape....
Boeing chief executive Jim McNerney acknowledged Wednesday that planned transfers of thousands of engineering jobs out of the Puget Sound region are “controversial” but insisted that the moves will “strengthen our company, strengthen our engineering capability.”
