2009 Seattle Parks Foundation Questions 2 Goodspaceguy
On July 21, 2009,
Goodspaceguy, one of eight 2009 Primary Election candidates for the position of King County Executive, answers the 2009 Seattle and King County Candidate questionnaire of the Seattle Parks Foundation .
Question 1: What are your priorities, especially as they relate to parks and green spaces in Seattle?
Answer: I, Goodspaceguy, want to increase access to the parks by increasing free parking, and I want to increase access by keeping the parks always open, (for example, for lovers and for gay astronomers) and by providing showers for users of the parks.
Question 2: What do you see as the main issues facing Seattle’s parks and green spaces, and what is one innovative idea or change you think would help address these issues?
Answer: Lack of use. I, Goodspaceguy, want more free parking and showers. Sweaty people stink. I, Goodspaceguy, believe that showers would help solve this problem by enabling park users to exercise and then shower themselves promptly clean. Also I would like to establish campgrounds in some of the parks.
Question 3: How would you help preserve public funding for maintenance, improvements and additions to parks and green spaces in Seattle?
Answer: As an accountant and as an economist, I, Goodspaceguy, have been advocating that we un-sabotage our economy so that jobs become plentiful, so that we can create a stable economy of jobs for everyone whom we can coax into the labor exchange market. Also, I, Goodspaceguy, favor job sharing. Also, as an economist, I, Goodspaceguy advocate that we give support to the job-destroying minimum wage by requiring government to hire helpers at the minimum wage to help care for the parks.
Question 4: What is your vision for Seattle’s central waterfront?
Answer: I, Goodspaceguy, want to strengthen and beautify the viable viaduct. Through this process, I, Goodspaceguy, want to greatly increase easy access of the people to the waterfront from downtown. I want to build pedestrian walkways and viewing towers over the viaduct. I, Goodspaceguy, want to add greenery to the viaduct so that when people sail into Seattle from Elliot Bay and see the greenery of the viaduct, they will think, “Ah, this is the beautiful emerald city of Seattle. Seattle is a castle in King County.”
My Goodspaceguy Viaduct Beautification Plan will be much more affordable than the Terribly Depressive Tunnel Plan. We should save taxpayer dollars by stopping the Terrible Tunnel.
Question 5: Please describe any work you’ve done – professional, political or volunteer – related to parks.
Answer: I, Goodspaceguy, as a user of the parks, occasionally pick-up trash in the parks. I carry plastic bags in my van for this purpose.
I won't be voting for Goodspaceguy, again.
I couldn't have said it better brother. Sometimes, when I'm the only one there, I actually leave trash in the parks too, so I'll have something to pick up the next day when people are around and can see me doing it. I'm considering running for garbage commissioner, so it's a way of padding my resume, really.
Goodspaceguy, you're one of us!
he wont ever say goodbye
but he will say hi
and eat pie
and never cry
but talks about the sky
and that's fly
but its altogether a trippy high
One of the first observations we can make is that whatever the inhabitants of this spaceship do, whatever technology they use, if the number of people there exceeds a critical value, the life support systems of this spaceship must collapse sooner or later. This critical value is reached long before all people there would stand shoulder-to-shoulder, because the life support systems have a finite capacity for a certain number of people per habitual volume. The limit is not set by availability of energy, which we can set to be sufficient for any number of people, but by the limited life support resources that the spaceship contains.
