    It sucks that Portland has become Ground Zero in a dress rehearsal for the potential Fascist takeover of the United States. However, there's a reason George HW Bush called Portland "Little Beirut". We will not give up without a fight. Because there's enough of us who care about shit, when shit gets bad, and we do anything and everything we can to fight it. Yes, there's some bad elements of that, some people that just want to burn shit down for the thrill of watching shit burn, but thankfully they are the minority of us that are on the streets every night, and we will continue to be on the streets every night telling the world that this shit, and by SHIT I mean Black Lives not mattering, Crony and Corrupt Capitalism enslaving people, Militaristic Police abusing their power, and clueless and corrupt politicians who let it happen.

    Oh yeah, and Damian Lillard for MVP.

    Sorry RastaMan. That first part was an older reply. I completely went off on ABM, then decided I'd take it back. As far as the troops in the picture, I can clearly see company patches on their uniforms.
    Seems like people like to use the term "UNIDENTIFIED" to stir stuff up. In all honesty, these people they are snatching up have nothing whatsoever to do with the BLM movement or peaceful protests. These look like dudes out there just fucking with stuff......creating conflict.
    I just took a walk thought our neighborhood with the dogs, stopped and got an iced tea......my city is just fine, not under attack. We live smack dab in the middle of town. Not the Beruit they are reporting.

    Any of you lot despairing of life in Shithole Portland are welcome to do a houseswap with me in Flint, MI. Now I work online, it's totally feasible! We have an excellent Institute of Arts AND Institute of Music...

    So who are they then?

    One hopes that's true, but I don't see how you can say it with any confidence.

    I'm not up to speed on the company patches like I was when I was enlisted. And as far as having confidence of knowing these aren't BLM supporters, I don't have much, that was just my opinion. From the eye, these don't look like any of the people who marched through my neighborhood multiple times in May and June peacefully protesting. Maybe that's where I formed my opinion.

    If Trump and his administration get away with this it will only get worse. I'm talking 1984

    I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that we’re all pretty much crazy, but crazy doesn’t equate to stupid.....just sayin’....

    Surely you've heard of Homeland Security's new motto:

    So, this officially blows my mind. All along I had you pegged as a cranky old, keep off my lawn, guy living in Hillsboro.
