    Billionaire Seahawks owner and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen this year has made his largest-ever foray into congressional politics, donating $100,000 to a group aiming to keep Republicans in control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Huh. Who knew? I guess he'll be villainized and called a traitor by all the half-wits. But good for him!

    I like it, but $100K to Paul Allen is probably the equivalent of $.01, or less, to most people. Probably just hedging his bets.

    Soros routinely doles out $millions to the far-left culture killers.

    What the......what?!

    You do realize that he donates millions to anti-gun legislation, right? Hell, I just read an article about it last week.

    Many wealthy individuals and businesses contribute to both sides in trying to gain political favor. Will the left call for a boycott of the Seahawks like they did against In and Out Burger?

    Yep. Let's see what he contributes to the demotards. My bet it's much bigger than $100k.

    Pual is no friend of ours. He donated $1M to the WA State I-1639 initiative that is currently tied up in the court system.

    Not a Seahawks fan but between Russell Wilson growing up here in Richmond and this news- I may start pulling for them a bit more.

    I remember the article I read....it talked about I-1639, and who the Big 3 Donors were. It was Allen, Bloomberg, and someone else whom I can't remember.....

    I'm a die-hard life long Trail Blazer fan, but like hell if I agree with the ownership about anything. And F- the Seahags.

    You would think these billionaires trying to play god and strip us of our rights would wake people up. Unfortunately, those people are screaming too loudly to realize who the puppet masters are.

    I think it's more than that. They're rich enough to the point where they don't give a damn who supports what, or votes for whom. They just care about their narrow-minded viewpoints.

    The name certainly sounds familiar, no doubt it's him.

    Either way....what it amounts to is billionaires telling us commoners what we "need".

    Good point...don't you just love that...People who are wealthy, famous or both, are automatically self elevated to a higher level of intelligence... The ignorant masses are so fortunate to have them looking out for us...gag..gag...
