commented on Downtown Business Owners Call Holiday Protests Against Police Brutality "Intimidating" and "Unfortunate"
Ah the classic "oh no you're driving allies away" uh no you dick those allies were never there. Clearly being civil has done nothing to solve a deadly problem.
Were you aware of or active on the issue before the protests? No. Did you care? No. With so many people claiming they're being driven away you would think there's a mass of people ready to act. There's not. Just the aggrieved and folks who are always there to protest.
People wonder why these murders happen but somehow lack perspective to note that the notion of "your vocal disagreement with the killing of black people is keeping me from shopping and makes people in the cause look violent" comes tumbling out of their mouths with little effort.

commented on Governor Inslee Tries to Have It Both Ways On Protecting Washingtonians From Cancer, Pleases No One
If we don't make a good faith effort now then all our asses will be on the line. The increasingly toxic stew sloshing around in the Salish Sea will increasingly harm more than just Native Americans and Asian and Pacific Islander communities and that's bad news for everyone.
It might cost money, it might be bold, but the lives of your neighbors and the future you leave your children depend on healthy fish and clean waters and that means hard work. Ridiculous efforts to push profit over people only harms us all in the end.

They were happy to take credit when Ref 1 passed but now they're all about being hushed up? Cool.
