DONT WORRY! 28.Jan.2011 09:27

The Ridgerunner

Don't worry people, it will never happen here. Portlanders idea of protesting is to plaster a bunch of different bumper stickers on the back of their smelly old Subaru and call it good. Needless to say, the rest of America is just a nation of superficial slugs who are way more concerned with having the latest cellphone in one hand and a Starbucks Latte in the other. Nobody ever rioted when Bush started two illegal wars, bailed out the auto companies and banks and took away our Constitutional rights with the Patriot Act, nor did anyone riot when Obama gave way even more fake money to the Wall Street fat cats and also went back on his Anti-War promises he made in the primary.

So yeah folks, nothing to see here. Move along. Get back to your cozy SE bungalow and take some hits of your medical marijuana grown from electricity generated by nuclear power and fish killing hydroelectric power and try to forget about the fact that you're just another hypocrite who is a slave to the system. Just remember, keep your nose clean and don't leave your house and protest in any way shape or form because the FBI will put you on a list and then invent some charges to bring you up in front of a Grand Jury.

Obama Pees His Pants... 28.Jan.2011 09:41

Let's Call Him At White House

Obama pees his pants when he realizes that it could happen here too. All the king's horses, and all the kings men and bombs can't do much when enough is enough. Let's support the courage of Egyptian people, and hope Americans get some backbone against fascism.

U.S. Continues to Back Mubarak
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is a longtime U.S. ally, and his government is among the top recipients of U.S. foreign aid. White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs said the Obama administration continues to back Mubarak's reign.

Robert Gibbs: "This isn't a choice between the government and the people of Egypt. Egypt, we know, and President Mubarak has for several decades been a close and important partner with our country."

FOX(666)NEWS 28.Jan.2011 11:41

WTF MATE?

fox(666)news is claiming the "violent" protests will most likely be taken over by the military who will then impose their own version of what they want for a government. typical fear mongering.

o = 15 (1+5=6)

"burning" is a violent word 28.Jan.2011 14:34

pdxpacifist

You should say, "non-cold activity". Also, don't say, "war", which is also violent. (Non-peaceful event is better.)

I'm more peaceful than you, and I'm more in solidarity with others (except the zionists). My actions have caused the police to change the law, too.

Stay within the lines.
