Got Green is continuing to push for climate policies that reduce pollution directly at the source

I can't find anything about birth control or other measures to control population growth on gotgreenseattle.org. That is reducing pollution at the source.

@2 - nope, because in the end, the State should not be able to force a person to use their body against their will, even to save another "person's" life.

I would like to see bills introduced that, when a woman is forced to give birth, the father is forced to donate a kidney or part of his liver to save someone else's life. Both are violations of bodily autonomy by the State.

I live in Spokane, and every time someone talks negatively about "the West side" I remind them that without King and Snohomish Counties, Washington State would barely have an economy, and welfare counties like Spokane would be shit out of luck.

Sometimes that is enough to get the idiots to shut up.

@35 my vote, for Clinton, from the East side of WA state counted as much as your vote. This is a good example of the attitude called out in other comments (like @58) here that leads people to vote for candidates like Trump.

I second what @66 says about riding a recumbent bike. I can ride 50 - 100 miles on mine and only feel tiredness in my legs - no sore butt, shoulders, neck, wrists ... or other sensitive areas.
