Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Finicum Martyred


Apparently the armed radicals who took over Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge on Jan. 2 and stayed disruptively for a few weeks have finally been taken down on the desolate road between Burns and John Day, where a "meeting" was to be held this evening to settle this or that.

I'm all for occupations, but as all wise folks know this was the wrong cause, the wrong place, the wrong idea and the wrong fight.

Even OWS had more substance, and that was questionable.

I'm really amazed that only one person died in this conflict.  Obama and his underlings showed a lot of restraint early on.

But alas, something had to break so the people of Harney County could finally return to their lives of working and bickering among themselves.

Next...

Update:  Stage two involves some hardcore resisters who remain in the refuge.  This is likely suicidal now, like Finicum.
