May 18 Tingleyfeeln commented on Seattle Police Say Three-Fourths of May Day Arrestees Were from Out of Town.
Before what is now Shoreline was incorporated it was addressed as Seattle.
I say someone from a city immediately bordering Seattle is not from out of town (but I sure wish fewer Eastsiders came over here).

As for the high ratio of cops who don't live here, how many of them ever have? Perhaps if they had more at stake here than their paychecks they might show the community more respect.

@5, if its about money, maybe that money is compensation for being screwed over and subjected to an attempted genocide, not to mention the far reaching consequences of a culture being thoroughly devastated.

@3, those fireworks probably pollute far less than petroleum.
WTF is up with SLOG connectors lately?

@34, you know why I accuse some people of not being from around here? Because this city (& The Stranger) used to be a progressive place. The brogrammers and woo-girls in particular have changed this place for the worse, and it often shows in comments threads. As for the hipsters, they're neutral IMO. They are who they are with much help from seattles contribution to our culture.
Many of the new arrivals should have been directed to Bellevue.

@ 28, it's not about the arctic specifically, so much as the arctic is the fight that was brought here. If we get a heads up about fracking equipment there'd be a similar protest.

I was going to say "good luck without petroleum in modern society, but at least one person beat me to it.

Instead, I'll comment about the unfamiliar names I see here (not that I have a thorough working knowledge of all of us SLOGgers). I'm suspecting there are a couple of trolls and/or gentrifiers in this thread.
The kayaktivists resemble the Seattle I have known and loved for nearly 25 years more than people who point out this paradox and call it hypocrisy.
May 9 Tingleyfeeln commented on The ACLU and the Low Income Housing Institute Are Opposed to the Proposed Smoking Ban in Parks.
How do the homeless smoke?
Panhandling, buying the cheapest rolling tobacco available, bumming smokes, picking up half smoked cigs from ashtrays and off the ground.
In your replies, spare us your elitest responses. We are talking about people who are mostly unhireable here. Lets stop picking on them like they're the real problem around here.
May 6 Tingleyfeeln commented on Bernie Sanders: The Republican Budget Is So Bad, No One Will Believe What's in It.
No candidate can be perfect. This is another reason to advocate voters to turn out for the less glamorous offices in numbers more equal to presidential elections.
May 5 Tingleyfeeln commented on Food Guy Anthony Bourdain Is a Stooges Fan.
If you didn't know his musical taste, you obviously weren't paying attention to his shows or books. Kitchen Confidential was dedicated to the Ramones, he's mentioned Funhouse as being on his desert island list, had David johansen (New York Dolls) on an episode of his current show, and has mentioned many other rock greats on his shows. Like the coolest of punks, his tastes go well beyond punk and hard rock. I checked out Morcheebs after he had their main composers on his show (he even recorded a guest vocal take in a track). The man IS punk rock.
May 4 Tingleyfeeln commented on Video: Seattle Police Burn Seattle Times Reporter's Foot With a Flashbang Grenade.
If the question is about whether or not police were targeting journalists, this video is inconclusive. Occupational hazards, but I hope her injuries are minor and she has a speedy recovery.
