    Have you READ the posts to that site? Thats just some comical stuff right there. You should just swell with pride.

    'This' didnt happen to a 'marine'. It happened to a protester...a snot nosed little **** that refused to follow the orders the police were given (by the mayor) who happened to at one time have enlisted in the marine corps. He certainly isnt an active duty marine (huh...you'd think of all people 'marines' would understand that concept).

    I got news for you...military folks...active duty and retired...are subject to the same rules and laws as your average everyday citizen. Beinf a non-active marine doesnt make you immune to the rule of law (and apparently it doesnt make you immune to blunt force trauma as well).

    Keep on with this rise up bull****. Its going to end SO WELL. Oakland...San Diego...Denver...hey...the president WANTED class warfarfe...look how well it is all turning out.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think you're confusing one mayor for another. Just nitpicking though.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Do you know it is a different Scott Olsen? Sure...there are many different Scott Olsens. And it may not even be a real site although the dates of the sites creation cant be too hard to determine. So...is it or isnt it...or are you are as blinded in your insistence that it isnt (based on what you want to believe) as those you accuse? If you can say for sure it isnt then that should clear it all up.

    Good catch. By the mayor should have been in parenthesis...it just needs to be stated very clearly that the police in Oakland and across the country arent out there arbitrarily shutting camp sites down.

    How did you make that post without doing 123456789?
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Would the LEOs really take on the retired US Marines?



    This puts a lot of bite into the OWS protest.
    Professional protesters...what are they going on about? Why haven't the police CS'd this problem away?
