    Are you sure that kiosk is still there?

    Stopped by there today, and they were out. They had no clue what they were doing, didn't even know what e-juice was... had no idea that existed.

    Dontcha hate it when noobs run kiosks? It's the economy, dude -- people and employers can't be picky about things anymore. It's all about cutting corners and saving money. Can't afford somebody who actually KNOWS the product? Well, let's just take the first guy who walks in with a résumé....

    It's not their fault. It's the previous administration and all those who turned a blind eye to the collapse that was imminent under the Ponzi scheme they created.

    I'm down for that. It'll be easy enough to organize one on meetup.com, evite.com, or even here on the forums. Though, my vote is for a vape-friendly bar either on the hill, downtown, or south lake union.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but it was Bill Clinton that signed the bank deregulation bill in 1999, and Democrat Barnie Frank that oversaw the lax Fannie Mae mortgage lending rules. But, We derail...

    There are plenty of fingers to point and plenty of blame to go around. I'm not even going to bother posting references to the Bush administration's hand in all this, because as you pointed out, we're derailing here. I'm just a community organizer/activist who's been real frustrated with the direction we've been heading in. Oh, and I'm a retired Army Reservist and Iraq war veteran, too. But I'll get off my soapbox now. It was late at night when I wrote that, and all my accumulated rage tends to bubble over approaching midnight. :|

    That was my impression too, but at least they'd heard of e-cigs. BTW, hello from Shoreline :)

    It's my impression that any meetups are likely to take place in Seattle. Wondering if there are any Tacoma folks out here who would like to do a meetup as well...

    I'd even make a trip down to Tacoma. I lived there for about 4.5 years. If you do, I suggest the Parkway. Definitely my favorite bar of all time.

    Awesome suggestion. I'll keep it in mind, although I'd need a carpool coming from the South End.

    Heck ya! It could be a peaceful vape-in. We could just sit on the steps and vape away and we could could maybe get some attention from our state representatives. We should have written testimonies in hand and... I don't know... what about doing something like that? :confused:

    Maybe we should try to coordinate the entire forum to go to their respective state capital buildings on the same day and get the media involved to get our point across. :rolleyes:

    Excellant idea Siobahn!

    Great idea -- I'd even drive to Olympia from Tacoma for that!

    Let's put it out to the group at large -- who wants to find out when the legislature is in session and organize a vape-in on the Capitol steps? I'd do it myself, but as the Tacoma MoveOn Council chair, I've already got my plate full with organizing as it is.

    Cheers,

    What? A chance to piss off my elected representatives and get to meet all the other vapers in Western WA?
    Sign me up!

    Looks like a raised hand to me -- BiteMe, you're in charge of organizing this and publicizing it! Don't worry, you'll have help, but the first thing you'll want to do is find out when the legislature's in session!

    We can talk about recruiting in a bit. I'm having a meeting on the 26th for green energy, and some folks have confused the two.

    Cheers,
