Re: “To the "the Yoko Ono of our generation" Writer

People don't hate Yoko because she broke up the beatles, they hate Yoko because she didn't break up the Eagles.

Re: “Hippy Horse Shit

^ See, that's the real truth and nobody wants to say it.

Pollution isn't the problem. This planet is way over capacity. I think it's time to consider sterilization and/or requiring a license to breed before Nature cooks up a superbug and cleans the slate its own way.

Re: “Hippy Horse Shit

The biggest single thing any one person can to save the environment is to kill themselves immediately.

But I admit that I don't care about the environment.

Re: “Hippy Horse Shit

The us military is the worst polluter and biggest resource hog on the planet; the logical result of the super massive government you seem to envy so much.

The parenthetical closing wasn't all that inspiring I've gotta say.

Re: “Way to Go, May Day A-Holes

It's not like the May Day protest happens nationally every year on May 1. I can see why Anon was caught off guard.

Re: “Fight of the Century, My Butt

IA has a valid point. It's not about who hits the hardest. It's about who can take the hard punches but keep moving forward. Don't let this set back keep you down IA. Maybe the next match will be worth watching.

It's not a real fight, it is Boxing, with a different skill-set and different discipline.

Re: “Way to Go, May Day A-Holes

While I think the self-importance of many marchers is illustrated by arelius 'we are living in a time of revolution'
(yeah, keep telling yourself that pal) -- in no way did Freddie Gray deserve a death sentence at the hands of cops, no matter what he was doing.
Many laws seem arbitrary and silly to future generations, so I tend to view breaking some ain't always a bad thing.

Re: “Way to Go, May Day A-Holes

Errr, yeah, NO.

You and your friends are not the arbitrators or regulators on how people should spend their time.

No one has the right to shut down public transportation, destroy property, interfere with commerce, assault public servants, and generally act like three year olds, simply to deliver a political message.

You right to Free Expression does not trump others peoples right live, work, or travel through a safe environment in downtown, or anywhere else in the City.

It does not give you the right to make people late in getting home to care for their children and pets, late getting to work, or make businesses lose revenue.

The simple fact is that Freddie Gray is dead because he decided to live a life of crime, and sell heroin. He decided to carry a concealed weapon prohibited by the terms of his felony probation. His repeated bad choices led to his death. It's no reason to burn Baltimore, or riot in Portland.

And if you think there is going to be a revolution in this country, get yourself up to OHSU and get some meds.

Re: “Fight of the Century, My Butt

If you wanted to watch real fights you would have quit watching boxing a long time ago.
