The last few days the "Tacoma Memes" page has been exploding with popularity on the old #FB.  You should go there right now...

I Think of it as DIY political cartoon folk art. As a political cartoonist attempting to adapt to modern times... here is my hand-drawn contribution based on the perverse incompetence of our own Pierce County Council (nice work TNT)

next week: Jake Fey and Our Budget Problems!

I say in either in the Pierce County Council chambers or the Tacoma City Council chambers where all the nuts are at.

Can't Jake Fey pay for the budget gap by himself with his three (...or is it four ...or five) income streams?

Meanwhile my comrades in the Tacoma Communist Party of Pierce County have adopted a spot...

It's on south 15th, between Yakima and I

I must find my Russian coat and my War Fez and get a picture!

Publishing images of the communist party adopt a spot sign are strictly prohibited.

The city council just passed a sales tax increase (1/10 of 1%) to pay for mental health services. Now the city manager is proposing taking over a million dollars of this money in each of the next two years to help cover the city budget shortfall.

Can you say "City Council pulls a fast one on the citizens?"  

by NineInchNachos on 10/3/2012 @ 8:01am
actually not all bad...

"another would eliminate a business tax exemption to health care
nonprofits, including MultiCare and Franciscan Health Systems. That tax,
adamantly opposed by the city’s health care giants earlier this year,
would raise about $5.5 million during the budget cycle."

ha ha!

Just a little over a month from now and Robert Hill will be liberated again.So probably expect him on TV Tacoma at a upcoming city council meeting.

I am starting a collection to buy Mr. Hill a plane ticket to Tucson, AZ.  please donate, thank you

cisserosmiley there would be negative effects because of that.No more comical city council meetings on TV Tacoma.No more funny Robert Hill stories on the newstribune or the melononline,or komonews,nor exit 133.Less Gadfly candidates to vote for.and no more funny Robert Hill cartoons from NineInchNachos.He is a Tacoma fixture let's keep him here.
