Apr 24 chrisgreen commented on Married Couple Who Shot and Pepper Sprayed Milo Yiannopoulos Protestors Charged With Assault.
What I find interesting in the FB discussion is something that I have seen elsewhere at trump rallies...

This guy is quite short, overweight and middle aged. Yet he's excited to be explicitly planning on "wading through the crowd and cracking skulls" despite being very ill-suited for it. Because he feels strength in numbers. Finally he can lash out against those he hates safely and with approval. But because he's actually a coward and couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag, of course he brings a gun and pepper spray .

It reminds me of some of the trump rally altercations. 75 year old men with stooped shoulders throwing punches with their faces filled with rage.
Jan 5 chrisgreen commented on Tacocat to Play Coachella Despite Its Owner's Odious Political Views.
I'm sure the stranger is gearing up going to question every local band about why they are playing Bumbershoot (Aeg live)? And I'm anxiously awaiting the new policy of not promoting (or accepting advertising dollars for) any show at The showbox, wamu, key arena, ...

>Anschultz is the owner of Coachella's parent company AEG Live, which owns Seattle-area venues such as KeyArena, the Showbox, WaMu Theater, and Marymoor Park.

And everything else: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anschutz_E…

Given that, it sounds like there's a really log list of acts you could have written about for this. Including really big names that have a political association.. And aren't tied to writers at your paper.

That's old tech.
Get high, put on an HTC VIVE (virtual reality headset), forget about trump, video games, and everything else in the real word :-)
Mar 11, 2016 chrisgreen commented on Helen Fisher on Open Marriages: "They never end up working long-term.".
"The reasons open marriages don’t work are biological, Dr. Fisher said: The parts of the brain involved in romantic love are next to areas that help orchestrate thirst and hunger, she said. "

That sentence is just straight up pseudo-science. I was unable to relocate any research involving any measurements of the brain at all related to open marriage.

This header is innacurate and inflamatory:
"Feds Invade Pot Farm in Search of Occupational Safety Data"

When the story describes OSHA performing a non-hostile inspection with the cooperation and support of the business. Extending normal worker protections and workplace safety regulations to the new businesses is a positive thing, both for the normalization of weed, and for the workers employed in it.

ugh. I live in Wallingford right off of their route, waking up to the inanity. Honestly, I don't think it should be legal to make so much repetivive noise over a large area for such a dumb reason.

I'd have called him on it and ridiculed him. Answering his free speech rights by exercising my own. But I'd be hoping to piss him off enough that he took a swing so that I could use my right to defend myself.
