Seattle is the fastest growing city in the nation, presenting both opportunities and challenges. How will Seattle’s next mayor and the city councilmember from district 8 lead Seattle through this time of growth and change? How will they solve our transportation and housing challenges as we experience this rapid growth? How do they see transportation, land use, and housing as being connected? How will our new leaders ensure all Seattleites have the ability to walk, bike, and take transit to where they need to go? What strategies will they implement to make living in Seattle’s beloved neighborhoods affordable to all? What does equity mean in the context of transportation and land-use decision making? These are the types of themes that will be explored at our Growing Seattle Forum for the 201...

http://mortgagemovies.blogspot.com/2015/12/kingcast-and-mortgage-movies-present.html How how many of makeshift homes could be eliminated with $9M dollars? How many homeless schoolchildren can you cover or feed with $9M? You are about to witness an exercise in modern Heglian dialectic pitting that which is good -- the lawsuits and movements in Multnomah county -- against that which is evil -- the breach of social contract in seattle, in which they spurned the expert witness testimony of their own hired consultant who reached the exact same result as the Multnomah Commissioners who settled with MERS for $9M last week. Not to mention her successful testimony in a Wolf v. WF, a $5.4M Jury Fraud verdict in favor of the homeowners. Now bless his heart City Councilor Nick Licata has fought th...

http://www.democracynow.org - Seattle made history this week by passing the $15-an-hour minimum wage — the highest rate in the country for a major city, and more than twice the federal minimum. The raise will be phased in over time. Seattle businesses will have three to seven years to implement it, depending on their size. The plan also includes several loopholes for businesses, which were fought until the last minute by Seattle City Council Member Kshama Sawant, the first socialist to be elected to the council in a century. Sawant ran for City Council last year on a platform of raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. She join us from Seattle.

The Garrigan Lyman Group prepared this excellent video to recognize Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates. On Sept. 14, 2010, Gates was presented with the Silver Buffalo Award at a special presentation in Seattle by the Chief Seattle Council. The tribute explores Bill Gates' time in Scouting and includes comments from his father, his boyhood Scoutmaster, and his colleague at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The Silver Buffalo Award is the highest service honor given in Scouting. Fewer than 700 have been presented since 1926.
The councils gave the public a chance to make their voices heard on the SoDo arena. Following a crazy reverse-Oprah guy ("YOU Give $1000! YOU Give $1000!"), Adam Brown and Jason Reid give a Sonicsgate one-two punch and tell the councils why they should support Chris Hansen's SoDo arena proposal | http://sonicsgate.com | Support the SoDo arena proposal at http://sonicsarena.com | You can watch video of the full 3-hour public hearing at http://take21.seattlechannel.org/2012/07/19/live-broadcast-at-530-p-m-joint-public-hearing-on-proposed-sodo-arena/
Cut the cake and drop the fine
I've seen good friends go down the line
This part of town where the sun don't shine
Always on the connection
This wind blows cold inside the flats
The screams start up like howling cats
Righted when I kick up dust
Be there on the connection
Could spend your life while spend the cash
Sell your soul or just your ass
Beat the boredom by beating someone
Either way you'll just be waiting on the connection
Seen all sights and they see mine
Counting seconds - I've done my time
Now I'm due out - They do ... divine
I'm trying to make the connection
If all this were fair - and justice true
I'd drink a toast - to me and you
As it is I'll just drink to forget
I tried to make the connection
You can kill the spirit but not the soul
Kill the poet and hope that goes
As lies are lies - I've lived and died
Either way I'm waiting on a connection
Soon in the bed - gonna rest - unrest
Sooner you give ....... I'll still be here when push comes to shove
