Applications for King County’s Section 8 lottery are going on now. If you are eligible, I would encourage you to apply.
Did you vote in a special election? Did your local bond pass? Should I have covered it before it was over? All good questions.
Big election coming up tomorrow. Could make a huge difference for years to come. Of course, I am talking about the King Conservation District. You can vote online for this one, so you can vote on the toilet. In fact, I will be disappointed in you if you don’t vote from the toilet.
I asked a couple environmentalists and they said Porter. So vote for Porter — while pooping — is the official Carl Ballard recommendation.
It would be nice if the Sound Transit area was allowed to pay for Sound Transit without shenanigans from the state. I know, I know there was an initiative. Still, if you want to contact your legislators and let them know that it’s bullshit, Transportation Choices Coalition has a place for you to write them.
So, today is the impeachment vote
And by now it seems rather rote
If you think they have some gall
Well, give them a call.
Or at least you can write them a note.
Does whatever the cock does!
Hangs around ’till you’re irate.
The second round is not as great.
Obviously apologies to Spiderman, cocks, and rhyme schemes. And good luck to the candidates.
Happy maybe last day of impeachment. I see people posting on Twitter that if he’s acquitted, President Trump will start believing that he’ll start feeling like he can do anything. But that’s false; Of course he has always operated like he can do anything and will continue as long as he’s in office. Impeachment showed who the Republicans are, and now it’s up to us to defeat them.
I realize that this is a long shot, but does anyone know where in Seattle you can watch the women’s FA Cup tournament matches? My team, Ipswich Town, are doing surprisingly well. They’re in the 4th tier of the Women’s FA but are down to the round of 16. It would be nice to see a full game rather than highlights.
A few years ago when the men’s team were in the semifinals of the FA Cup, it was on at some pubs. But this feels a bit tougher to find. I couldn’t figure out streaming it in the US, but maybe I missed something.
This rain is pretty ridiculous. Please slow down a bit. Try to pace yourself, the rain. We have enough landslides and gigantic puddles. Let’s give it a rest. Maybe come back when we’ve had a chance to dry off a bit.
Did any of you realize the King Conservation District was having an election at all? Or that you could vote via the Internet including on your phone? It seems like the District elections come up just enough that I can never remember the process Just put it on the ballot and send it to people’s homes like a normal election. But seriously, do any of you know who to vote for?
The snow was nice yesterday, but where is it today? I wanted more. Oh well. It’s still nice and chilly.
The legislative session starts today. So here’s the annual what would you like them to pass post. For me:
– A capital gains tax would be a real step toward making the state’s tax system more fair. I would prefer an income tax, but I don’t think that it has the votes.
– I don’t have much faith that they’ll do much good on transportation, but at least don’t fuck it up any worse by caving in to another unconstitutional Eyman initiative.
Still feeling gross. But WTF Boeing?
Feeling pretty crappy today, but suffice it to say, today is a good time to write or call your member of Congress and ask them to oppose a war.
