Boycotting all of Paul Allen's enterprises

I've never been a big fan of the Seahawks, but I have attended many corporate events there, several of which have been on my companies dime. I've also been a long term member of the EMPSFM and regularly attended events at Cinerama. All that ended earlier this month.

My company is leasing a large new office, and one of the buildings presented by the broker is owned by Vulcan, so I told him to remove it from the list.

Paul Allen thinks he can throw around his money to erase our rights via 594, while he has his own FFL and armed security team. :mad:

Anyone else with me? :D

When you have the money of Bill Gates you can give money to whoever you choose to just so you look good in the eyes of the public. Being we are in a blue state of course he is going to side with them:rolleyes:

All those people who have the money to spend on tickets to games and all the spendy stuff up there probably do not shoot guns. I know on my end I would rather spend the money on a new gun or supplies then go to a football game and be crammed in a seat with 30K other people around me. I can watch it on tv if I really want to see it that bad:D

I haven't been in a stadium seat watching a game that wasn't better than my own deluxe seat at home.

*Temperature controlled.

*Unlimited open bar

*Free snacks

*Shoe (and dare I say pants) optional

*Can OC what ever firearm I want
Sometimes theres a "pat down" by a undercover woman.. It rarely happens so its not too intrusive on my rights.. But I kind of like it.

*Private fully stocked bathrooms that don't smell like a sewer pipe just burst and don't have urine or unidentifiable sticky substances on the ground.

Its fantastic. I can even doze off and no one bothers me.

But back to the OP. I do support boycotting anti firearm folks and their businesses when & if at all possible.

As many people can watch those games in person and at home as they want. The net result is:

1. Less people on our beautiful northwest rivers during the premium fishing season.
2. Less people in the woods during the best hunting seasons.
3. Less people on the hundred or so golf courses.

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the lightest pressure days on the rivers. All the drunks are at home. Sitting in front of a TV for just about any show or event is boring as hell to me. I would rather fish , hunt, stock the wood stove in the shop and work on something listening to classic rock on the stereo.

Did you write this post on a computer using a Microsoft product? Bill and Malindy Gates just gave 1 million to the I594 cause. Good luck with your boycott.
Gates left Microsoft years ago. He owns less than 4% of it. Gates, Ballmer and Allen combined own less than 20%. And it's basically impossible to avoid Microsoft in my career.

However, football games, museums and cinemas are discretionary spending that I can easily redirect to alternatives that are not majority owned by Allen.

Better to light one candle than curse the darkness.

And no, I wrote this on an iPad.

Another cash dump into Wash. gun control effort: Is this overkill?

The Seattle Times reported yesterday that Bellevue billionaire Steve Ballmer and wife, Connie have added another $250,000 to the already-bursting-at-the-seams campaign coffers of Initiative 594, prompting a source in the comparatively cash-poor rival Initiative 591 camp to observe, “This is just overkill.”
