ATS is his safe space, he would never say what he says on here out in public considering the possible consequences.


Consequences?

Oh that’s right. Physically assaulting people who are ‘right wing’ is acceptable behaviour.
For fascists.

Read a little further and you'll see me clarify my position, I don't condone violence but I know it might happen if some of the stuff said on these boards were said to someone in person. Both of us know that, that doesn't mean we condone it though.

Yeah true.
Read further and seen.

It’s like if somebody called me ‘n*g*er’ I have absolutely NO RIGHT whatsoever to attack them or assault them in any way. In fact, it is 100% illegal and indefensible for me to do so.

Same if I wear a MAGA hat, nobody can assault me for that. Nor should they even want to.

Anybody who reacts to a person having different views by ‘attacking’ is a moron.

I bet my bottom dollar that DB is the very same person in public that he is on this site. He has NOTHING that he should be hiding or should be minimising. His right wing views are reasonable and are VERY mainstream among the majority of all Americans.

(Far more so than my right-wing views anyway)

Who said anything about anyone beating you? I mean you embarrassing yourself.

You’re an embarrassment to this forum with your constant trolling BS.

This is you to a f’n T. You’d never make it down the block.

Sending the police out to return politicians for this reason could be a human rights violation, regardless of state law. That’s some gestapo chit.

It's shocking how many of you are struggling with what a non partisan committee/commission is. Truly disturbing.

Let it go.

You were wrong. You screwed up. You tried to do a "gotcha" at me and it failed.

It's okay.

You're not the first.

Just try to stay on topic and discuss the on-going political malfeasance in Oregon.

Kay?

*hugs*

Feel better now?

*gives a little kiss on the forehead* Now go out and play, I'll call when supper's ready.

What's even more bazaar is that it has nothing to do with the fact that the Oregon Governor is now using the State Police to force politicians to the floor of the senate, but still refuses to discuss with the GOP the issues that caused the walk out to begin with. So this "non-partisan/Bi-partisan/trans-partisan" discussion has really nothing to add to the topic at hand.

Current update;

From: Q13.com

SALEM, Ore. — Republican state senators in Oregon continued to engage in a high-stakes game of brinksmanship Friday with Democratic lawmakers, saying they are prepared to sue if the Senate president goes through with a threat to impose a $500 fine for each day they delay a vote on a landmark climate plan.
“We will file legal action,” said Sen. Tim Knopp, a Republican from Bend who has said he has been in three states in the past three days. “If they were trying to bring us back, threatening to arrest us and impose fines isn’t going to work.”

And it seems that the biggest issue that is at hand is that the GOP just want the voters in Oregon to decide this bill instead of just passing it without the voteres consent.
Also just so everyone can see how the DNC is acting about this:

Knopp said Republicans would be willing to return to the statehouse to solely vote on budget bills.
“We would come back if that’s what Democrats want to vote on,” he said. “At this time, that hasn’t been offered. As far as I’m concerned, the Democrats are responsible for this impasse.”
Burdick said it’s not Republicans’ “job to dictate what we can pass and what we can’t pass.”
“They’re responsible for being here,” she said.

It's not their job to dicate what we can pass and what we can't pass. They're just responcible for being here. WOW, talk about suporting the state. The DNC doesn't care about the GOP or the people that voted them into office, all they want in just warm bodies. I'm surprised the DNC hasn't decided to pass the bill in a close door session, and "claim" that the GOP reps needed fled afterwards.

Are the GOP representatives getting support from their constituents? I sure would support them!

Force the cap and trade vote to the people. That is what they are holding out for and I fully support that. If the people of Oregon are dumb enough to vote for cap and trade on the next ballot, then Oregon has too many stupid people and it's time to take business elsewhere.

There is a crow funding to support them, but they are limited to only 50$ that they can take. I'm sure the DNC could figure out a way around that rule, but I doubt the GOP will go that way.

Speaking as an Oregonian, the political left in our fine state are nothing more than authoritarians.

They’re bullies.

It’s not about doing what is right and representing the state, it’s about a sweeping leftist agenda.

These same fine leftists are the ones that cut funding to the mentally ill and have cut funding for programs for the mentally ill housing.

They’re hypocrites of the worst order.


There is nothing off topic or wrong in questioning your claim to non-partisanship when you write posts like that.

Hypocrite!

Update from yesterday, From: washingtontimes.com

7:20 p.m.
A “possible militia threat” is shutting down the Oregon statehouse amid an ongoing walkout by Republican lawmakers who are blocking a vote on landmark climate change legislation with their absence.

A spokeswoman for the Senate President confirmed late Friday that the “Oregon State Police has recommended that the Capitol be closed tomorrow due to a possible militia threat.”

And From: Q13.com

Right-wing groups posted their support for the GOP lawmakers Friday on social media — in one instance offering to provide escorts to them should the state police come for them.
A group of local Republicans were set to protest inside the Capitol on Saturday when lawmakers were present, and anti-government groups threatened to join prompting the statehouse shutdown.


I like how the propaganda started slowly on this. From same sourse as above:

One of the groups, the Oregon Three Percenters, joined an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. Dozens of people occupied the remote Oregon refuge for more than a month to protest federal control of Western lands. The standoff began to unravel when authorities fatally shot the group's spokesman and arrested key leaders as they headed to a community meeting.

I didn't see anything listed for today yet, but it seems that the GOP is still out and about, while private militias are promising to protect them. Some of the GOP have been in regular contact with the Oregon State Police, but regardless of that Gov. Brown is refusing to hear them out and let the voters decide this bill. I'll up date more as it comes through.

Of course, DB never suggested he was non-partisan. Rather he was on a non-partisan committee. A non-partisan committee is a committee that's not run by a political party (the actual entity). they can be quite partisan, look no further than the "Nonpartisan" Southern Poverty Law Center. Yes, they're a bunch of leftist hacks, but it's not run by a political party. If you want your organization to come across as nonpartisan, rather than in name only, you name an equal number of members who are on both sides of the isle.

You're better off trying to explain this to a field mouse.

You guys completely missed my point, which was the behavior anonymous posters display in an online forum, hopefully isn't the same behavior that DC Cowboy displays when he sits on his "non-partisan" committee.

Here's DC's reply:



Nope. I tool around in my hov-a-round and throat punch leftistassholes just for kicks. As the kids say.

So, don't lecture me on non-partisanship and good faith.

Had some friends from up that direction, they placed the blame squarely on people moving out of California bringing their stupid policies with them.

Overall this is going to be a major moment I think, if the state police start dragging law makers back (saw the head of the state police said they wouldn't) that just might be a watershed moment in our country.

This is happening in a lot of places. Texas is another one. People are moving out of California because California is becoming harder and harder to live in because of liberal policies driving the cost of everything through the roof. In some places you can make 6 figures and qualify for welfare because cost of living is so high.

Then they get to a new place (Oregon, Texas, Colorado, etc) and vote for the same stupid ideas that ruined California. These people are clinically insane.
