Seattle income tax: ‘Ill-advised’

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 16:24:17 -0800

(image)
If Seattle’s illegal income-tax ordinance, ostensibly to mitigate the city’s current regressive tax structure, had even an ounce of integrity, it would have included a provision for low-income folks to receive a rebate for a net revenue neutral transfer of wealth from the “haves” to the “have nots” [“Seattle’s income tax ruled illegal,” Nov. 23, […]



Orcas: Snake River dams

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 16:21:04 -0800

(image)
I am extremely frustrated with reporting regarding our starving southern-resident orcas. The article never mentions the one thing that will actually help recover salmon runs — to remove the four lower Snake River dams. Barge traffic has declined, and any power that would be lost from the dams could be made up with solar and […]

Mileage vs. gas tax: No ‘free ride’

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 16:18:09 -0800

(image)
I find astounding the “outrage” over a potential mileage tax vs. the existing gas tax. Every vehicle owner uses our roads and creates wear and tear on these roads, which requires maintenance. Road maintenance costs money. Since the advent of hybrid and electric vehicles, every vehicle owner is not paying his or her fair share […]

In reference to the essay “Alzheimer’s patients deserve death with dignity”: I want to add that the main choice to live or die at the time of diagnosis should be up to the patient. We choose to live as we want, and we should have the same right to die as we want. If a […]
