Is the City of Seattle going to ruin their economy with the new head tax?

At least demand parity unless you want the need for nets outside factory windows to prevent suicides! (Unless you are imposing depopulation.)

government solve all problems

Last week the Seattle City Council approved a new head tax on big businesses. The tax is an amount businesses pay per employee ($275 per year), with a sunset clause of 2023 (don’t hold your breath that this tax will actually cease to exist at that time). The head tax was approved by a unanimous vote.

I’ve told you what has led up to this head tax vote. See the following:

Amazon had strong words for the Seattle City Council as it questions its future in the city. “We are disappointed by today’s City Council decision to introduce a tax on jobs,” Amazon Vice President Drew Herdener said in a statement.

Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals.

Not only do they want to own our property, they want to own us as well. We are to be their property.

The PPJ Gazette

Tom DeWeese, recognized expert on private property rights, has released a new book entitled Sustainable: The WAR on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals. DeWeese’s book describes in detail the process being used at every level of government to reorganize our society through the destruction of private property.

According to DeWeese, the American system of free enterprise, private property ownership and individual liberty is under attack by a political force that, while plainly out in the open for all to see, is little understood and mostly ignored. Yet private non-governmental organizations (NGOs), city planners and federal agencies have teamed up specifically to change human society under the banner of Sustainable Development. It is gaining power in every state, county, and community under the false threat of Environmental Armageddon, demanding that we completely reorganize our economic system, our representative form of government, and our individual lifestyle.

While termed in positive sounding…

Massachusetts: Epidemiology needed on SMART meters

If in MA, it could be throughout USA.

The PPJ Gazette

PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY: SIGN THE LETTER AND EMAIL

Many Massachusetts residents have a wireless electric meter already installed on their home, and are unaware that the meters transmit 24.7.365.

This is a 3 1/2 minute video of the microwave radio frequency pulses from a wireless utility meter in Eversource territory (formerly NStar).

If you ask the company, they will tell you that you do not have a ‘smart’ meter.
It would be possible to do epidemiological research to determine if adverse health effects including heart attacks, SIDS, neurological conditions, fertility challenges, autoimmune illness, sleep disorders, and other conditions coincided with the installation and activation of these meters on homes. Cancer is not the only concern associated with radio frequency exposure.
Epidemiology is needed due to lack of informed consent, lack of premarket safety testing, and lack of investigation of health complaints.
There are no research studies indicating that the meters are…

Sexuality expert says parents should ask for consent to change a baby’s diaper

An example of a problem we face in the person of educator Deanne Carson; its cause and solution presented by Yuri Bezmenov. In my opinion.

Fellowship of the Minds

Liberals and their whacky ideas…

From NY Post: An author and educator has been ridiculed after saying parents should ask babies for consent before a diaper change and watch for a response through body language.

Deanne Carson said in an ABC News segment that families could set up “a culture of consent” in the home by asking newborns: “I’m going to change your nappy now, is that OK?”

The CEO of youth relationship service Body Safety Australia added: “Of course, a baby’s not going to respond, ‘Yes, Mom, that’s awesome, I’d love to have my nappy changed,’ but if you leave a space and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact, then you’re letting that child know that their response matters.”

The segment was highlighted on Sky News Australia’s “Outsiders” show, with Rowan Dean introducing the clip with a dig at the rival…

Amazon launches model “smart homes” across the US so customers can try out Alexa

Today, we place orders; tomorrow, we will be given them.

big brother

That device is ALWAYS listening and recording you. It won’t be doing that in my home.

I get that people enjoy new technologies but are you so lazy that you can’t get up to turn off  the lights?

From Daily Mail: Amazon.com has set up model ‘smart’ homes across the United States for shoppers to experience what it’s like for voice aide Alexa to dim the lights, turn on the TV or order more laundry detergent.

The rollout underscores how Amazon aims to make Alexa and the company’s growing list of services, from shopping and entertainment to home security, an everyday part of consumers’ lives.  It also steps up competition with retailers such as Best Buy Co Inc that focus on showcasing technology and advising shoppers.

Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, said it has partnered with Lennar Corp to convert some of the home construction company’s model…

UK Police State: man arrested for carrying potato peeler; another gets 8 months for giving middle finger to traffic camera

Beware the assault kitchen utensil! It will skin the potato and gouge its eyes out!

Fellowship of the Minds

While we were sleeping, the United Kingdom had morphed into a tyrannical police state.

Here are four recent cases of police tyranny:

(1) Breitbart reports that on April 28, 2018, Scott Walker, 39, was arrested in Dunfermline, Scotland, for carrying a potato peeler in a public place “without reasonable excuse” and faces up to four years in prison.

Criminal Law (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 1995 forbids the carrying of “an article which had a blade or which was sharply pointed, namely a potato peeler”.

Walker was on bail for another unspecified offense at the time of his arrest. Local newspaper the Dunfermline Press And West of Fife Advertiserquotes Walker’s defense attorney (“solicitor”) Selina McKay who said her client “suffers from significant learning difficulties which have been lifelong”.

The unusual arrest comes amid heightened public interest over knife crime, as UK capital London — an official gun-free zone — experiences an unprecedented crime…
