    Donnie-boy can't hear the laughter any more than he could hear the boos at baseball stadiums. All he hears is the loop playing in his brain that tells him he's a better President than Lincoln.

    There’s been a number of military planes flying over the sites of protests and if the military has commented at all, they’ve claimed that it was “purely coincidental” and they’ve not been actively spying on Americans.

    I am beginning to realize it is probably good this is happening under trump because it gets ignored under dems. Sure, less of it happened, and it was focused on brown people, but we were doing these things when Joe was VP and senator. Joe actually helped to make more of it possible with the drug war.

    That was a pretty awesome reading and dissection of the issues. We will see how all of that shakes out in the future as I am sure donnie little brain is still floundering with person man woman chicken fillet camera TV.

    I must be super powered to have remembered that, and be doing drugs.

    Yup, dumb sure does seem to mean a person has nothing to say about the truth, but hates that it was said, right @Ancalagon ?

    Yeah, tear gas can certainly cause mass vomiting as my boot camp company (Orlando C041, April to June 1993) can attest.

    Be real interesting to know the details and if other governors and mayors are talking to Inslee & co about the subject.

    One possibility is that it wasn’t really anything Inslee or Durkan did but that Portland has become a shit-show. It isn’t working like he wanted (see look I cowed the Dem leaders and defeated Antifa!) and is further dragging him politically.

    Pride won’t let Trump pull out of Portland without being able to claim some kind of victory but self preservation is keeping him from expanding his fuckup.

    I have seen a number of tweets showing pictures of various helmets protestors have been wearing that clearly have been hit by things such as rubber bullets (which are supposed to be aimed at the center-of-mass, not the head). All of them that are plastic have clearly been rendered unusable by the impact. I've gone ahead and ordered a Serbian Army surplus steel pot so that if the plastic helmet I ordered ever takes a hit, I've got a back up. (Not that I've been to any protests, but I suspect I'll be involved in a number of them come November.)

    When the US Army setup the incinerator at the Anniston Army Depot to start burning the stored stockpiles of Chemical Weapons, FEMA went spend crazy in the State in case it all went sideways. Every Officer in the whole north half of the State got a full MOPP suit and training on how to use it.

    They didn't ask and I didn't turn mine in when I left. :bergman:

    4 years, 3 months.

    Edit: Wait, no. That's when I left. I honestly don't recall when I got it. But, we had to do periodic maintenance to the thing. Replacing filters, etc, along with actually practicing with it.

    Is it still sealed in its bag? If not, I wouldn't rely on it. :bergman:
