Behind Seattle’s Amazon Tax: Seething
Tensions, Livid Neighbors, and Rising Rents

Bloomberg News, by Karen Weise

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 5/16/2018 10:43:41 AM

It was, as the local public radio station said, the day “Seattle Nice” died. On May 2, the residents of Seattle were hit with a one-two punch. For months, the city council had been debating a new tax on large employers to raise $75 million for new affordable housing and services for the homeless, whose growing population had burst out of shelters and into tents around the city. (Snip) Homeowners shouted down the council members and each other—decrying how growth and homeless encampments were encroaching into neighborhoods. Some opposed the tax, shivering at the thought of risking jobs at the

Perhaps lunacy has reached its limits in Seattle.

One point the author made in passing is that a part of the problem is the "opioid crisis and. the state’s meager mental health resources." Seattle is not the only place in the state that is being affected by this "enlightened" state´s stingy support of mental resources. In one case, two counties shared a single tiny crisis response office, and then they closed it because one particular politician thought a local hospital could handle matters more efficiently and bullied others to go along. That hospital has failed miserably, and the two counties are paying a high price for it.&

Provide the tools, supervision and materials, and let the homeless build their own homes. Maybe they would take pride of ownership and not destroy their homes, like most welfare recipients do to their government-furnished homes. They would learn skills, enabling them to get jobs and not be parasites on taxpayers.

Either that or give them a section of land for their tent city.

OP, You´d like to think so but, please look to Detroit and other shining examples. Those folks are so stuck in their ways, I have very little faith in things changing.

This aint a black, white, brown or yellow issue. It´s a mindset. Some have just swallowed whole the notion that more taxes and government will solve their problems. CONTRARY to ALL EVIDENCE.

FTA:"Normally, higher prices would induce more construction, but zoning laws prevent that," Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin Corp. wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.

His blog post was more informative than the Bloomberg article. I don´t agree with everything he wrote in that post but do agree that zoning regs are the big issue and it isn´t being addressed.

What you subsidize, you get more of. What you tax, you get less of. Thus, in the future fewer businesses will be supporting more homeless.

The homeless and random murders -
Two substantial problems in the USA today that are directly driven by the lack of enough, or in some cases, any, long term mental hospitals. There is a certain percentage of the population that are not mentally able to function in a free society. They will self medicate with alcohol and illegal, harmful drugs and a certain portion of them will get a knife or a gun and harm others.

The leftist idiots who closed down the previously existing state and local mental hospitals decades ago, did it (as usual) because they thought that they were smarter and "better" than previous generations. And, as usual, they were wrong - leftist are ALWAYS wrong.

Those millions need to be used to fund long term mental hospitals for the insane folks who can no longer be permitted to live under bridges and in camps along the margin of the cities.

Leftists are cruel fools. Bring back the "mental institutions". It will take money, but it is far more humane and better for society than not doing it.

Local builders were making affordable, low-cost housing back in 2014 and before. But in 2015, the same council passed a series of requirements that demanded the apartments be bigger, cutting in half the number of units that could be built per building, really. And of course, this increased the cost per unit to the renters.
Now, the council wants to pull the money to fix that from successful businesses under its jurisdiction.
In other words, let´s fund further incompetence, because you KNOW they won´t figure out how to best use the funds they gain from this tax.

Let Amazon stop building and/or get out of Seattle altogether, followed by its buddy Starbucks. The overwhelming vote by the city government to implement the tax is mind-boggling. It will never work, and it has not worked in the past; but these liberals refuse to see it. I don´t live anywhere near Washington state, but after reading Amazon´s statement on the city´s finances, it looks like they have misused the taxpayers´ money without much accountability, and now want to milk them for more in order to patch a problem of their own making. Hey, you want socialism? You got socialism.

I think it´s a good idea. It will make the street people flock to Seattle to take advantage of the great benefits and clear them off the streets of other cities. It will become "Bum Town USA" and plague the citizenry for their Liberalism, panhandling all over their business district and tonier neighborhoods, and ignite the exodus of large businesses, not that it will ever make them vote for conservative leadership.

I live in Shoreline, immediately north of Seattle, our southern border is their northern border. I grew up in the Ballard area, graduated from Ballard High School. Ballard does not need to be ´gentrified´. It WAS solidly middle-class with homes built early in the 20th century. Now those homes are being torn down and being replaced by huge 10-12 or more story condos and apartment houses. My husband´s family home still stands but is surrounded on both sides with huge apartment buildings. The district is now mostly hipsters, millennials, drug addicts and bums. (all with dogs)
The city council is probably the most radical, left-wing council in the country. They keep finding new ways to raise taxes. Not only this ´head-tax´ but they´re trying to put an income tax on Seattle residents. The mayor announced yesterday she wants to put tolls on streets in downtown. It´s never ending. There are taxes on sodas, bags, special taxes on ammo and guns. Apartment owners have to rent to the first person who applies, they can´t even do background check. Employers have a set of rules on how they make up work schedules. You absolutely cannot believe the insanity that´s going on in the city. And yet the citizens keep voting for these clowns. Yesterday, Albertson´s announced the closing of two of their grocery stores. Amazon has already raised Prime from $99 a year to $119. People don´t believe you when you tell them that the company isn´t going to pay any taxes, they will just raise the price on whatever it is they sell. The people end up paying the tax.

Re#15
Wholeheartedly agree.

"Corporations dont pay taxes, people do," makes a great slogan/bumper sticker, but fails to explain why. "We" the people have failed to adequately explain simple business theories to the lofows. I sent a letter to the RNC chairman several years ago pleading with him to start explaining these issues in the media. Im firmly convinced that if everyone actually understood how businesses operate, democrats would never win elections outside of Berkley.

Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable. “I have to tell you.

Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Christiane Amanpour and husband, Jamie Rubin, are calling it quits after 20 years of marriage. The Washington Post cited "a friend of the pair" that said the CNN host and her longtime partner are divorcing, though the split is "amicable" and "the two remain close friends."

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

NEW YORK — Starbucks is going strawless. The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020. The changes will help Starbucks eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said. Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them. To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.” (Snip) Frappuccino

The party that has embodied Scandinavian social democracy for decades risks a historic beating. With nine weeks of political campaigning left, latest polls estimate the level of support for Sweden´s Social Democrats at about 25 percent. If confirmed in the Sept. 9 general election, it would be the party´s worst result on record. Like its sister parties across Europe, the group has been wrong-footed by rising opposition to immigration across the continent. Under its leadership, Sweden has seen an influx of about 400,000 immigrants since the Syrian refugee crisis of 2015 -- a massive number for a country of 10 million

As President Donald Trump prepares to name his Supreme Court nominee on Monday, disgruntled Democrats are carping at Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell for his cheap politics in denying even a vote on their highly qualified pick in 2016. They also need to look in the mirror. Democrats set the stage for their powerlessness to affect the court choice, and their reaction just deepens their political anguish. A year ago, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer spearheaded a filibuster against Neil Gorsuch, nominated by Trump to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of
