The tech-bus protest isnt just a San Francisco thing anymore.
This week, the anti-gentrification act of blocking a private shuttle full of high-paid tech workers spread to Seattle, where a handful of buses carrying Microsoft employees were stopped by demonstrators. The protest was chronicled by local Tweeps and community websites.

But...mass transit is cool, right?
What’s a “Tweep”?
Do they not want them to have transportation so they’ll be easier to pick off as they go to and fro from work alone? /S
Or is it just jealousy?
It’s downright hilarious...Plus, for the global warming liberal idiots (both sides of this protest, I am sure), bussing is a “lower carbon” activity than everyone individually driving into work...ahhhh...I love the smell of irony at the end of the work day.
And the stupid thing is that the company is run by batty libs, and most of the staff are left-wing kooks too!
This wont even begin to open their eyes of the psychotic nature of their kind.
a Tweenie Twerp?
Yes, quite amusing. So these big corporations are not doing anything to better the cities, sucking the life blood from them.
I love it!! I really do. These companies do all the opposite. Remove Google, Microsoft, and Boeing from WA, and watch those areas dry up and blow away. Of course, these high paid techies do drive up prices, but too dam bad. Seattle is a fun city to visit. Just don’t live there. :-)
Read the comments they’re hilarious. “We don’t want those East coast people bringing their attitudes and BS out here” WTF? Apparently hipsters hate east coast liberals?
Instead of “anti-gentrification”, maybe they can call themselves “pro-slum”.
Liberalism mandates that its’ cult followers hate everything.
OMG! I was reading comments at the article and envy is surely the hallmark of leftist ideology.
I had to look it up.
It’s a combinations of Twitter and Peeps (People).
In another few years I’m not going to understand the language at all. Although, maybe it won’t matter by then.

Sitting at my computer at the office (I am in Virginia)...literally laughing out loud as I read some of the comments...Good lord, Seattle is in deep, deep trouble if that is an accurate representation of the voting populace...
Why are they protesting a Google bus? Are they against Google or the bus? Is the bus emitting too much CO2? Is it burning fossil fuel? Not enough accommodations on the bus for GLBT? Did google not give them a proper “shout out” on one of their many “in recognition of” days? Turn too much of profit maybe?
The Democrat Flash Mob, more training to stop commerce in any and every city.
