Why I hate people from Portland.
Why I don't hang out with progressives.
Here are comments I copied off of an article relating a cross put up to mark the spot where a pretty none offensive grandfatherly type person was shot. The unbelievable hypocrisy of people who think cops are horrible when a member of their favorite group is shot, but applaud when same police standards are also applied to a group who they don't like.
It is especially amazing when this group is basically non threatening. They don't loot, they occupy a non important building in the middle of nowhere they don't disrupt traffic during rush hour and they are kind of old.
Ironically... I saw a post on my Facebook page from a "friend" who was decrying the destruction of the Centennial Mills building in Portland Oregon. They were quite upset about this destruction of a historic building. The destruction was approved by the Portland Development council. They waxed quite poetic on the subject.
Imagine how one would feel if it was your OWN land that had been condemned and appropriated by the gubment. Or it was your ranch targeted for acquisition by the BLM. Total insanity.
Not to annoy anyone I like but here is an example...
I have farmed a piece of property for most of my life. It has been sold to a quasi gubment agency so that they can create a wildlife sanctuary to offset their damage to the environment from killing salmon in their fish ladders.
I find it so absolutely offensive and absurd I start sputtering when I try to talk about it. Promoting an overpopulation of Elk so you can kill salmon is an inane idea. Plus, it is really a land grab by the Feds and it is administrated by the local Soil and Water Conservation district. It pisses me off so much I won't call the administrator back even though he is my friend (as much as anyone who works for the gubment can be your "friend") and even though I really need the money.
I really don't want to ever set foot on the property again, once it is owned by the "gubment." This idea that it is "our" land is a lie. It is in fact... The Kings Forest...
Anyway, here are the comments.
You know when I saw the picture associated with this story I stopped what I was doing (cleaning out my sink traps) and I played a sad song with the worlds tiniest violin. After five seconds I stopped that and went back to my life. I am much happier now.
better start building the "Memorial to the slain Patriot"....HOGWASH there is no honor in this place...none... a criminal was attempted to be apprehended and caused his own death through resistance to arrest and carrying a loaded firearm after threatening harm if law enforcement dared to interfere in his rights as a sovereign citizen.... is there a monument to McVeigh... hardly
This man was and is NO hero... to anyone....
Cripe. Selective reading of the Constitution, and now even selective eyesight. The mentality... "blatant murder." Good God. It was a tragedy anyone had to die here, but people who keep trying to create their own facts, and threaten further violence are themselves the problem.
I do so hope they video the takedown of that pig faced seditionist Sean Anderson...who was last seen doing the grizzly bear dance with his sow. Watch him whine and squeal and snivel like the coward he is as the steel bracelets are put on his wrists. "Armageddon...come get some...KILL THEM" to quote the obese alcoholic convict. You will be a convicted felon Fat boy..all your bang bang toys taken away never to return...do you realize the level of your insipid stupidity yet?
I thought Lavoy was a Mormon. They don't use crosses. This must be some seditious wag trying to discredit him.
Tasteful, at least. Unfortunately, when the 3% arrives, they'll set up a kiosk to sell their really kewl merch.
Some of my neighbors take legal risks routinely. By that I mean they break various laws, i.e.....drive while intoxicated....use illegal recreational drugs...shoot big game on their wive's or 80 year-old mothers license....regularly drive far over the speed limit....and so on. You know...all those pesky little laws that just hinder a persons personal freedom of choice. When these folks get caught...they squeal like gut-shot pigs and characterize the Game and Fish as "bullys" or the State police as "unfair" ...or the city cop as "setting me up"....or they simply boast about their law breaking and demonize government for setting these "unreasonable rules". I hear it everyday at the bar or coffee table in our neighborhood here in Northern Idaho. This truly bizarre and totally wingnut thinking takes on a false righteousness...a result of group think.....as folks cuss and discuss LE or laws in general. Everyone joins in and pretty soon everyone at the in the group is smug, and come to believe they are truly justified in routinely breaking laws. After all....everyone does it...everyone at the table and in the neighborhood thinks the laws are "unreasonable" and "not fair" and "limit our ability to enjoy our lives."
It appears to me that this is what has happened in the LaVoy Finicum case. Even after they clamored for the FBI to release a video....even after the FBI released an unedited video.....even after it is plainly obvious that Finicum refused to follow instructions and sped off....even after they can see him charge out of the vehicle, put his hands down twice....even after the Oregon State Patrol says they observed him to make a threatening motion as though to reach for his inside pocket....even though Finicum had a loaded handgun in that pocket....even though everyone has heard and saw Finicum threatening to use his weapons against authority....they still don't believe the FBI, the State Police or the video. It isn't really a disbelief in the FBI or LE in general....I think their contesting the facts has more to do with a population who who routinely break laws...and never ever take personal responsibility or are ever truly honest and admit they are in fact the problem. I think most of the folks stating Finicum was unfairly killed...whether they use the word "murder" or "execution" simply won't or are unable to accept that there is law and order in the world. They break the law without consequences so often that they have come to view the application of law to be "unfair"...or "wrong"....or "overreach"....regardless of the circumstances.
Leader of the scumbag cowards who slashed the tires of Sheriff Ward's wife. This is how make believe Marine scumbag cowards fight their battles. They sneak around and harass women and children.
Bet it wasn't placed there by the mother of his eleven children who threw him out before he joined forces with Bundy or the 12 children he enslaved.
Please for the love of god and all that is holy someone please hang some dildos off this monstrosity.
just wondering if Greg Walden is thinking about giving the bundy gang that pardon they are begging for..nay-they won't have any money eft to donate to him
up at tumalo falls out of bend some calif.tourist family carved their name in the wooden handrail and posted it on FB..oregon went right after those idiots...you don't mess with our lands in oregon, cause we will get you good
I suggest that some of you start keeping a diary of this ongoing standoff.
Day 27: "Standoff continues, I spent 13 hours on comment forum and donated $10 to the water shed. I'm exhausted, but I will hold my ground. One dead so far. Gotta go"
