    Apparently the protest in Portland was pretty heavy as well.

    I've never wanted to kill a word, and every douche that utters said word, more in my life.

    My anti-May Day tweets have gotten more RTs and responses than anything else I've done. I guess there are plenty of people out there who enjoy bashing these fucktards. Sorry, but when you are carrying on in a tradition that left tens of millions of working class people dead of starvation and persecution you don't deserve dialogue, serious debate, or any attention other than: "HA HA! Look at that asshole get tazed and maced at the same time! HA HA!!!!"

    It's THE Marxist holiday.

    Of course it's also "Opening Day" of #Occupy2012: The American Spring.

    Add to that the Muslim world celebrating/honoring the anniversary of Bin Laden's death and the black, racist thug world celebrating the anniversary of the LA Riots and today has the potential to be quite interesting.

    I think we can safely say that today's protests have been an absolute failure. People worked, kids went to school, banking continued, chores were done, and goods and services were exchanged for money. Happy Workers' Day.

    But they are COMMUNIST AGITATORS!!! Ignore their impotence and probable lack of knowledge of any actual Marxist principles and cower in fear!

    Have you ever seen an Occupy protester speak during an interview? They are criminally retarded. I wouldn't be surprised if one of them cooked and buttered their own hand while making toast.

    Of course I have. That's why I find it ridiculous that anyone can consider them a threat to anything. They make black women who just lost their chill'in seem positively eloquent.

    I can sort of understand the window smashing of the bank and even them tossing a firebomb into the court of appeals, but I will never understand the mindset of destroying somebody's car. Look there's a 10 year old Toyota Camry, lets smash it cuz 1%. So now some working class guy can't get to his 99% job.

    They're hilarious and completely enraging at the same time. Fuck off and die, hippies. Or learn economics. Whichever comes first (after a shower, of course).

    You're in the midst of riot/mob mentality. Do you really think there's a logic behind it? It's just fun to smash stuff.

    They're annoying because you cannot talk with them or discuss anything with them because they're just so myopic (same with political correctness, sexism, racism, Kirkism). But I really just see it as young people being young and stupid. Some people might smash a car or a window, but for the most part these people are weak, passive losers who just want to be around people. They'll grow out of it. I mean for the love of God they came up with the term guitarmy.

    I can't get myself to get legitimately angry (though I get far more annoyed with the political correctness arguments).

    That kind of idiocy doesn't just come with youth. Those people are dumb for life.

    They did mail white powder to some banks and Mayoral offices here.

    Way to get the public on your side, pinkos.

    I guess having never participated in a riot I have no understanding of the group mentality of "smashing things is fun". Though at the gun club on fully automatic day is was fun to turn an old pickup into swiss cheese.

    You should understand that just by virtue of being an American male.

    Sure it's fun to break shit, but not if it belongs to other people. Vandalism was never one of my favorite things. Shooting an old TV set, or smashing a microwave we found in a pile of illegal dumped trash is fun. But I wasn't a shit head about it.

    Pretty certain I said POTENTIAL. Too bad they suck.

    I know right! Everyone knows the two groups are pretty much interchangeable. Really what's the difference between a few old people dressing up like Paul Revere or Betsy Ross and waving an American flag and 'legions' of young people smashing things while wearing all black and a V for Vendetta mask? Oh that's right, one has the backing of the Media and the ruling Party and the other gets put on 'domestic watch lists'. :icon_cool

    Two friends of mine work in downtown Seattle and were sent home early because of the rioting. Idiots.

    A lot of places shut down. Our building (work, not home) had all sorts of extra security measures in place.
