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.

Who said anything about anyone beating you? I mean you embarrassing yourself.
Text ATS is his safe space, he would never say what he says on here out in public considering the possible consequences.

It is truly disturbing how many of you don't get it. Truly disturbing.
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.”
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.
Speaking as an Oregonian, the political left in our fine state are nothing more than authoritarians.
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.
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.”
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.
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.

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

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