    Try as we might up here in uber Liberal Seattle, it just keeps coming up roses. Boeing, Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks, Costco, Paccar, guys who throw fishes ... unemployment in the surrounding area, less than 3%. Or maybe it's how we vote: Dem govs, since forever. Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, forever, it seems. And a guy who only has to be on the ballot to win; maybe pass out a business card (re-election campaign budget needed? $50 ought get him there). The good doctor, Congressman McDermott.

    Can you imagine??? Lefties as thick as molasses, Liberal Dems, no blue dogs, and economic friggin nirvana, in a state that's not a so called welfare state, where what we get back in allocations is less than the amount we pay in federal taxes. Red states? 9 of the 10 top welfare states; more back than they pay in.

    Mooches!!!!

    Who doesn't pass the bar? Why the former Mayor of Los Angeles, Tony Villar, aka Antonio Villaraigosa. He failed it four times. That's the quality one gets when factors other than "qualified" are applied to the vote. It will take some time for Los Angeles to recover from his tenure

    To leverage more concession from our governor. No biggie. We're swimming in Boeing plants. They litter the joint, plus with Amazon, Microsoft, etc., we have jobs growing out our ears. All kinds of out of state plates, with folks moving here. H1B visas galor, making for neighbors who cook great foods. It's all good. Happy to let SC have some of our table scraps.

    Seattle is the ninth most-expensive city in which to live, says a new cost-of-living survey.

    ACCRA, a national association of community and economic development researchers, rates 300 metropolitan areas quarterly on a variety of factors to measure the after-tax cost of living for a mid-management executive.

    In the third quarter of 1992, the Seattle area was ranked fourth in grocery prices, trailing New York City, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. Grocery prices here were rated 18 percent higher than the national average.

    Seattle was sixth in housing costs, 46.5 percent above the U.S. average, and third in health-care, traditionally high here, at 38 percent above the national average.

    Just like Detroit liberal failed policies come at a high cost and if it keeps going up like it has just like Detroit business will leave and people will follow

    Median income is $75 K about. No sweat, if larger economies is your thing.

    From the article:

    Since entering Congress in 1995, Jackson Lee has served on several committees, including Foreign Affairs, Judiciary and Homeland Security, in which she was the Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    No doubt, but seems they're coming here. Folks with jobs. Jobs pay better. Maybe we'll buy their stuff. (see how that works?)

    Meanwhile, if low cost housing is your thing, a hut in Sudan is a bargain, and not all screwed up by better-educated and higher-earning Lefties. Enjoy the cheap living.
