Dec 7, 2015 Gabe Global commented on Guest Editorial: To Get Rid of Citizens United, We Need Your Help on Initiative 735.
Hundreds of people have turned in petitions so far and WAmend has now passed the minimum required to file. If you'd like to help, visit http://www.wamend.org/takeaction. This is part of a national effort and WA can join California and Arkansas on the ballot next year - along with Bernie!
Apr 27, 2015 Gabe Global commented on The Koch Brothers Have Become America's Real Third Party.
WAmend and I-735 launched a campaign over the weekend to fight this very problem. We had over 300 volunteer signature gatherers out to make sure Washington will join 16 other states and goes on record directing Congress to pass a resolution for a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United. Corporations aren't people, money isn't speech, all campaign contributions should be made public. Go to wamend.org and sign up to collect signatures today.

Can someone please report on how much money was spent on this stupid campaign?

That's not just a $15Now supporter, that's one of the Masterminds! Way to go Philip Locker!

May 1, 2014 Gabe Global commented on Murray Announces Minimum Wage Plan So Complicated Reporters Can't Understand It.
This plan isn't complicated at all as far as policy and law goes. It's not "$15 Now" but neither is the 15Now group's plan. I also like the plan in relation to the State's minimum wage--much better than COLA at all levels.

What does thus mean? Do these people get paid?
Sep 5, 2013 Gabe Global commented on The Thursday Morning News.
Everyone thought Joe Mallahan's endorsements would lead to a win last time around and we know how that ended. All that these endorsements prove is that Murray is bringing Olympia politics to Seattle. A story on what he is promising all these endorsers would be a great next step.
Feb 19, 2013 Gabe Global commented on A Theory of White Native Americans.
I reject your premis: " Many black Americans also have Native Americans in their mix, but they don't make as big a deal of it as whites do." In my experience, way more black people talk about the Indian Princess in their heritage than do "whites".

Facebook over teevee. FB is free. TV costs lots and lots of money. The anti-Murray/pro-Rossi TV ads were ineffective.
