Raising bus fares 25% to a minimum $2.59 fare withiout round trip is grievous for the poor and unemployed in a time of severe recession. High management salaries could be cut.

Please make comments on this news in the Oregonian. It helps to keep torture in the headlines. America continues to torture based on what 2 rogue lawyers justified when working for gEorGe bush after he stole the election.

The whole thing is a mess. It has no head or tails. Just complain on one side and keep on being an integral part of what you are fighting for. You can't have it both ways. You truly are what you are fighting for because you do not withdraw.
So there was a demonstration and some people got a little militant and maybe broke some windows. Chances are the demonstration wasn't a rally against the existence of windows so this may not look like the smartest of moves to you. In fact, it probably seems pretty asinine. A broken shop window doesn't really hurt those in power yet it probably rose more than a few folks' hackles. Vandalism and a few street scuffles with the cops obviously aren't potent enough to directly overcome the state by force so why bother if it's going to turn a lot of people against you?
They are about to kill us all.
