    I flipped on the news this morning before heading in for work, and saw the "Breaking News" banner and the mention of "Street of Dreams". Before anything else was said I turned to my wife and said, "Huh...looks like ELF is alive and well in the PNW."

    Side note: Those houses were about 3 miles from mine...But mine was built in the 40's so I think it's safe. (From arson...not asbestos...)

    if elf really cared about mother earth, they would go to the hood & burn down the projects, which are far less efficient that today's million dollar homes.

    but nooooooo, everyone's gotta pick on whitey.

    Nah. More occupants per square foot and adjoining walls between units reduces heating/cooling costs by limiting external surface area.


    Kill whitey!!


    Nothing says love thy mother earth like burning up a bunch of plastic and treated wood.

    ELF is a bit misguided. I fail to see how torching homes will stop anyone from building. As if there isn't insurance involved and the FBI to investigate and stuff.

    i think ELF & overcommitted developers could start an unholy alliance. and i wonder how many developers aren't already thinking like an elf, buying the full get-up & setting their immovable homes ablaze. not an original thought, but plausible given the headlines & m.o. of ELF

    Insurance costs (or security costs) could get prohibitive if they keep hitting the same homes/developments over and over again.

    I just wish they would put all that burning wood to good use, like the PNW's largest weenie roast evar.

    They haven't hit the same areas because security gets beefed up (ie A rent-a-cop asleep in his car) after the first hit. Not to mention the local cops start to pay attention.

    They hit Portland a while back, then some homes down south, now Seattle. I guess if thye hit the same house 3 times, the point would be taken.

    If it were a good purpose, I would bring the beer.

    i'm all for hitting the hummer dealers, as hummers are absolutely useless while also being obnoxious on public roads. mcmansions, while excessive, are not in the public square almost running me over & creating unnecessary tension tween riders & the me-somethings.

    i think female real estate agents should have their licenses revoked if they arrive in a full-sized SUV to show a home. that should cull the crowd

    You give those guys way too much credit...a 400lb gorilla suicide bomber could slip by one without any trouble. This includes policia de adjetivo.

    Locally ELF torched several Bulldozers that were clearing land for yet another strip mall + condos. Developers had to post armed guards and challenged them to try again. Ultimately the joke was on the developer. Businesses chose another area to put the stores and the housing crunch killed the condos. He spend 5 million flattening out the land and has to continually dump more money into it to prevent erosion on the big scar he created. The recent drought has prevented any grass from growing so when it does rain large canyons are carved. The county keeps a very close eye on him as his last project caused a landslide and closed the main highway down for a day.

    There was a mass post x-mas tree burn that happened down on one of the beaches here. Prolly around 2,000 trees roped together below the hightide mark....guy in one of those silver get-ups with a flame thrower that looked like it was used in Normandy set it all off...

    By the time all the trees were involved no one could get closer than about 100 ft. without some serious inebriation to help out with the heat...once we heard sirens, we bolted...

    ELF problem solved in less than 6 months.

    Oh well, a few millionaires were inconvenienced in the name of a political cause. Im sure the anguish they've now experienced will be equal to what us regular folks go through on a daily basis with horrible jobs and money worries.

    Same thing.

    Way to make my comment all serious and sh*t...

    Wrong on all counts. I don't pay (weekly, monthly, or yearly) for what is played on my idiot box. ('cept electricity...duh...)

    I also don't drink stuff that could easily be labelled "Pig Swill".

    So let me get this right...

    These 'ELF' retards burn lots of toxic stuff to help save the environment?

    I'm with N 8 on this one. Shoot them all. Use their bodies as compost material. We'll be doing the world a big favour.

    Could also be great way for $tinkle's "over-committed" and financially over-exposed developers to to "get out" w/o having to talk to patchouli smelling, mother earthship, tree house dwelling eco-hippies.

    Step 1. Set Fire.

    Step 2. Put out cheezy sign that says, "Blah, Blah Blah, E.L.F."

    End result: Homeland Insecurity and the FBI spend hundreds of tax payer financed man hours a-tappin' phones and chasing imaginary "eco-terrorists," while Mr. Dickveloper collects his fat insurance check and moves on to despoil the next section of MTB trails, woodlands and/or dirt jumps.

    Not sayin' that's what happened in this case, but not really that implausible either. We've already seen a bunch of suspicious fires in large (and largely unoccupied) condo developments up here. Condos started just before housing "correction" == condos burned as prices drop.

    Not beyond the realm of possibility. It is well known that homebuilders are scum. Worse than lawyers...

    take your time with it, with the year-over-year decline @ 37% we need a little job security.

    I see no problem with this.

    The carbon emissions of torching one is probably less than the occupants eventual traveling to and fro in their Escalade. ;)
