The actual liberals have no one to blame for the progressive maniacs but theirselves .

The dinosaur Democratic establishment and the mainstream media stoked the anger. They angered their masses to the point were they became a full-time mob.

I think it’s all gonna bite them in the ass at the 2020 national convention. There is such a rift that convention is going to be similar to the one in 1968 .

I can’t wait to watch !

Like the patients who tell the local police to send "bachelors" and come "heavily armed"?

He was concerned for their safety .



Do you know the difference between a real threat and a hollow threat ?


Your interpretation is similar to the way liberals no longer get jokes they take them literally instead .

If the Dems have a super majority, why do they need the GOP reps to do anything?

Most states have quorum rules for the legislative sessions which require a minimum number of overall lawmakers be present for any vote to be held. The quorum numbers are often above the supermajority threshold.

I have been trying to comprehend what he says for years now and in doing so cannot comprehend how he claims to be on a non-partisan committee


Are you DAFT or do you just not understand....or are you playing the typical game of pretending not to understand so you can keep spewing crap.

You can be partisan and be part of a non-partisan committee. Our state has a roving 6 member non-partisan board that goes county to county to talk agriculture and ag bills. Guess what? What Mr. Soran? There are 3 DEMS and 3 REPS on the board, but the board does not follow any political BS agenda of either party - guess what.... NON-PARTISAN.

You are most welcome for todays lesson.

I was wondering that myself. Unless they have some kind of rule where you need a certain number of members there to actually hold the vote, and that's what they need the GOP reps for?

I’m not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon.


He has a point. When you have a situation in which members of the ruling party's opposition are dragged into the chambers by armed law enforcement officers at the command of the ruling party, that would seem to be a pretty damn clear human rights violation. I'll suggest this... if the governor of Oregon does send the Oregon state police after the state's GOP reps, the state's GOP reps would certainly cause a stir if they got Amnesty International involved. IN FACT, I'm not so sure such an action, if accepted as "political prisoners" by Amnesty International, wouldn't ultimately open the door for the federal government to enter Oregon and remove their governor for sponsoring human rights violations and abusing the state's law enforcement branch.

At this point they understand, they just have no real response so they have to pretend it didn't make sense.

From the Q13 link in the OP:

Republicans walked out of the Senate earlier this session in protest of a school funding tax package, denying the chamber enough lawmakers to continue with a vote. The sergeant-at-arms of the Oregon Senate was ordered to search the Capitol for Republican senators who were refusing to attend. The standoff lasted four days, until the governor struck a deal to table legislation on gun control and vaccine requirements.

So while the GOP doesn't have enough votes to do much, their votes are needed in order to have a vote. It's an interesting situation isn't it. on one hand it doesn't matter how the GOP votes, but on the other a vote can't even happen without the GOP being present to vote. It sounds to me that the DNC in Oregon need to learn how to compramise or force an uprising.

It's interesting to me that this is exactly the kind of event that many people are constantly going about wanted to see, but when the real prospects of it happening shows it's head, they seem to avoid the issue. As I said in the opener, I hope cooler heads prevale but either way this event has shown the public what a DNC controlled country is all about.

I'm going to add this little disclaimer:
I don't think these people are real repersentitives of the Democratic Voters, I think these DNC politicians are nothing more then Trotskyists dressed as DNC. This is why I call them DNC and not Democrats, since now days there is a difference. It may be nuanced but it is there.

OK, it's a 30 member Senate, and state law requires 20 members present for a vote to meet quorum rules. Presently, Oregon's senate is 18 Dems, 12 Reps.

It also brings up the issue that if the GOP feels like they are being held against their will, does their vote count? If a confession is made under duress it can be tossed out in court, does that rule apply to a political vote as well?

And here we go.
From : King5.com

SALEM, Ore. -- Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday authorized Oregon State Police to round up GOP senators who have staged a walkout in protest of the cap-and-trade energy conservation bill.


Some of the Senators have already left the state: Same source

A spokeswoman for Senate Republicans confirmed some members left the state because state police don't have jurisdiction outside Oregon. Oregon State Police can force any senators they track down in Oregon into a patrol car to return them to the Capitol.
OSP said Brown has authority under Oregon law to direct the agency to provide assistance with bringing back senators to the Capitol for quorum.


So now what? If this gets nasty, will it spread? I know some people in Washington State could be triggered to action if the GOP in Oregon are harmed during this. Also As I already stated, will this mean that even if the GOP gets police escorted into the capital, will their votes even count being that they will be taken while under duress?

A little update:
From; washingtontimes.com


Oregon State Police say “out-of-state resources” are helping them as they try to compel 12 Republican state senate members to return to the statehouse.
Police said Thursday evening only that resources outside the state were assisting them and that they had no additional comment.
The senators fled the statehouse Thursday to prevent a vote on major climate legislation that would regulate carbon emissions.
Senate Republican spokeswoman Kate Gillem confirmed that some members left the state to avoid a vote because state police don’t have jurisdiction outside Oregon.
State police also said the agency had been in contact with several of the lawmakers. At least one was reportedly in Idaho.


What will the Governor do now? Can the Senators be arrested legally in other state, then held as political prisoners in the Oregon State Capital? Is that legal in the US?
