    Oh, and BTW, for the record, Oakland's mayor supports this crap, and told her police force to stand down, in that case, I am contacting my reps, and senators, and telling them that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES do NOT want ANY federal aid going to Oakland to help with the damage.

    LET IT BURN!

    If she keeps it up...

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Oakland PD stand by and let them burn her office down.

    The PD couldn't be more confused and frustrated with the mayor there.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Thanks. Thats all I needed to hear to know that you are full of it, and I can't trust a single word you say on the subject.

    Your opinion on this matter is now worthless.

    uHH... Quick Question....

    WTF did your post have to do with the poster you were responding to?

    I don't think he mentioned Obama's poll numbers at all.

    Its not at all shocking that you get that this is nothing more than a lib democrat get out the vote activity. People bleat on about this pretense about how they want "banks and brokers out of politics" which of course is a lie. They dont CARE...just so long as those banks and brokers back democrats. This is just the Bush era anti-war types in a new cause they can get behind. Of course...they cant protest Obama and his increased military actions, expanding the patriot act, expanding black ops prisons, and forget about GITMO, extending consitutional rights to terrorists, etc. At least you are honest enough to admit that it is what it is...a smokescreen for Obama. I can actually respect that.

    No...but at least she was honest enough to admit what this whole thing has been about.

    As for Ikari...fuggedabowdit if you think he is ever goign to come out and admit...yes...the protesters set it off and the police response was accurate and adequate. Kinda defeats the whole poor us, the cops is evil bit when you have to admit that 1-the police were doing their job and 2-the protesters attacked the police.

    Heres the REALLY funny part...if that dumbass cocaine using ex (Ihate the ****ing marine corps .com) marine weenie hadnt accidentally got popped in the dome with a tear gas cannister, this would have been the most mundane crowd suppression you ever saw. The cops didnt wade into the crowd using rubber hoses, they didnt use fire hoses and spray them down. They popped off some CS and smoke bombs and the assembled masses ran like bitches. Where it not for their absolute dumb luck that one in their crowd was stupid enough to stand too close to the cops, NO ONE would have been injured. Yet we have had days and days now of the 'brutality' bull****. a few dumbasses allegedly popped with rubber bullets and some watery eyes. Dang...thats not much to start a rebellion on. But hey...never let a crisis go to waste.

    Well people are free to think as they like. But the rational individual tries at least someone to place context and understand why they are burning the flag. Do they hate America? It's possible. Are the protesting the government? Also possible. And so on and so forth.

    So who's the "idiot", the individual burning his property in protest against the government, or the "people" who see it but refuse to actually figure out why it is being done and instead just blindly condemn?

    What? One reference to a dumb song and all of a sudden my opinion is on the same level as yours? Learn to take a joke.

    The government set off the protesters. Had they just left their right to assemble and protest unmolested, this would probably had never happened.

    Your right to be you does not supersede my right to be free from you.
