  1. Well Seattle wants liberalism, they got it.

    But I do agree the state should not target big businesses to care for homeless.

  2. The corporate fascists win again with another one of their mind muddling petition campaigns paid for by Amazon…. It would be a shame for the rich to pay their fair share of taxes.

  3. Keeping the rich, RICH. Nothing new.

  4. People have been complaining about this for years and it's not going away. It's going to get worse. Enjoy liberalism. Idiots

  5. This has Nothing to do with Liberalism.
    It’s about Conservatives making the Rich Richer.

  6. We’re going to burn down all the Corporations and all the gated communities.

    I worked for a company that used to be in Seattle Wa. I has now moved to Spokane Wa. The sole reason being the UNFAIR taxes of Seattle. Look folks, I'm no fan of big corporations, but if you going to add local taxes to businesses, you better be fair about it, otherwise those businesses WILL MOVE OUT…. that's reality. O_o

    FYI… one of Amazon's new warehouses will NOT be built in the Seattle area. It will be right here in Spokane… hmmm I wounder why 😉
