No, you won't. Rangers lead the way, and you are not Ranger caliber material from what I've seen so far. Maybe in a few years, when you've had a chance to get your young idealist ass calmed down, and have put away the false pride and hubris, but not right now. You'll not be leading the way in the foreseeable future.



The police are actually not intelligent, at least most of them aren't. They haven't had the chance to study with a Military Sciences professor.


See, this is the sort of thing I'm talking about - labeling others as "unintelligent" because they've not studied under a professor? Really? Do you even know the difference between "intelligence" and "education"? They are NOT the same thing, nor even syonymous, and very frequently one will get in the way of the other.

So you've studied? Cool. How many times have you, with shaking hands, tried to get the cellophane off of a cigarette pack to cover a sucking chest wound so your buddy's lungs don't collapse before a competent medic can get there to replace you?

Ever heard a grown man crying like a baby for his momma as he died trying to hold his own innards inside where they are supposed to be?

I understand you saw a bus blow up one time or something. I feel for you, I really do, but DO NOT mistake one explosion that you saw from a distance with a war you are IN. Wars involve ongoing explosions, not a singular one. Seeing one doesn't make you a warrior, it makes you a spectator, or possibly a victim.

Honestly, professor, there is a reason that the say "those that can, DO. Those that can't, TEACH".



They don't have the drive I have. They aren't as physically conditioned as I. And you can be damned sure that they are not as creative as I. So do not ask if I could, ask when I will.


Good luck with that. I used to help train cops, and I would pay perfectly good money to watch that match-up, if you are really ALL THAT!



If that seems boastful it's because it's true.






Many of the people on here can have good poker faces, but when it comes time to show their hands, they fold.


OK. I'll platy that hand with you if you'd like.




Thanks for your service mate. I just ETS myself. #ing hated it. Worst decision of my life and had I known at the time I was signing my life away to line rich mens pockets and kill innocents I never would have done it.

I've been in the same situation you were in brother only I was the medic. A young poor inexperienced medic who went from AIT to the front line with just a few months in between and nothing but a few weeks practice on dummies and readying books.

I would not wish that upon anyone. The first time I had to treat a casualty he died. Incompetent? Nah. Just a young frightened kid who had no idea what things would be like.

Same situation too, sucking chest wound. I did the best I could but it just wasnt enough. This kid has no idea and hopefully he wont ever but alas, he just might very very soon if things go the way they look like they are, a la WW3.

Thanks again my friend. HOOAH? Nah. But thanks anyway. 68w 887ESC.

I think the stupidity should be toned down. OWS as a whole does not seek conflict. What individual occupiers say are their own opinions and they are entitled to them. Some are socialist, some are communist, some are anarchist, some are conservative..........together they make the "99% percentile" versus the "1%" who run the planet.

It is impossible for everyone to agree with each other, so there will be disputes. The message is to end the corruption of government and big business colluding with each other. Protesting at washington dc versus protesting at wall street is immatterial. The tea party prefers the first option and OWS prefers the second option,

OWS will eventually get infiltrated and its message dilluted. Still it will be potent from a leftist perspective much like the tea party is potent from a right perspective. I do not hate right wingers but I do dislike both extremes; right and left. We need a centrist government!

Socialism is centrism. I could not care less what karl marx wanted, eventhough he was honest enough to admit communism(extreme left) was his goal and that socialism was the stepping stone to that goal. Today we have capitalism in a predominately corporatist enviroment. Globally operating corporations with little regard for local business and local peoples. Profit comes first. This is what should be changed. Corporations should not have first amendment rights via bribery.

And for all those making fun of the 60s era hippies just remember they got us out of vietnam and other conflicts. Not every hippie is a drug addict and lazy playboy that rellies on mom and pop to survive. Conversely a lot of these folks become important people in society with a good educational background. They deserve respect, not contempt!

IMO the left has more to offer than the right as can be seen by protesting the IMF, Wall Street, against nukes, pro-enviroment, against WTO/G-20 meetings/bilderberger/CFR/Bohemian Groove..etc. There are some people on the right that I do respect but not many. Alex Jones is pretty good/honest! The right to individual liberties and the right to bear arms are good concepts but fall short of addressing 21st century issues. They are more 18th century oriented.

Hippieslap?

Is that anything like the hippieshake?





An Update: just walked by that area again and there is a large procession of protestors walking through the streets near the parks, at the moment. Events seem to be converging, it's cold and raining and not sure anyone seems to be in a good mood, down there. One block away there are Bike-cops amassing (East) and another block away the Riot-cops are gathering (West) and the rest seem to be surrounding the parks. The majority of tents and whatnot seem to be gone, a lot of people cleared the park this afternoon.

That's the spirit!

I had planned to paint peace signs and psychedelic flowers on my dust goggles, but found they got in the way of me seeing the dust.

So to make up for that, I went to see my aunt at the commune, and had her sew up a paisley cover for my kevlar - both the helmet AND the flak jacket!

You should see my combat Birkenstocks - they're to die for!

Peaceful, lawful protest works.

Thugs and Anarchists turn everyone against you.

How sad the thugs are taking over and drowning out those who are for real.

How sad people have died and been victimized by things like rape.

How sad some have chosen to stomp all over others Rights thinking they personally are so important they have the Right, which they do not, to do so.

How sad innocent businesses who did nothing to anyone are being destroyed.

All this is now is a daily report on the criminal activities surrounding the Occupy Movement. Those of you who are not violent thugs and criminals really dropped the ball by letting them take over the microphone. When you need the media on your side the most, you drive them all away.

OWS and company have become the Conspiracy and the criminals among you are not fooling anyone. Total failure and the only answer is for the real protestors to go home and let the authorities take out the trash.

They're either useful idiots or unworthy of the freedom given to them, in either case I have no use for you and thankfully there is a growing number that agree.


The point of 1984 is the Totalitarian world being created by world communism. So put socialists + Nazi part + communist party + Soros + Adbusters + Ruckus society + protests and what do you get?

that guy just now said, "If we want to overthrow Capitalism"....Need any more be said?


Edit: ten minutes later and they are still talking about overthrowing Capitalism....what will they say into the mic half an hour from now, two days from now? It seems to be about getting rid of capitalism....yes I'd say these proponents of communism.

He's either homeless or some douchebag college student going to school on his parents' dime. OWS is gimme free stuff now or else!

And they never do actually define "or else" as they know the rest of the nation is looking at them with furrowed brow and thinking "I will end you."

DING DING! We have a winner!

They DO know this to be true, in spite of all the rhetoric they spew about how we are "all the 99%". They realize, at some deep level, that 99% of that 99% will squash the remaining 1% of that 99% like a bug if they actually come out and say what they are really all about.

In order to obfuscate that, they carry on about how "no one can speak for the movement", "those guys are just a splinter group of malcontents that we can't bear to throw out", etc, etc, and all that other hogwash.

They KNOW, at some level, that as soon as a concrete mission statement comes forth, depending on what that says they will either be erased, OR large numbers of those "malcontents" will say "WTF? I didn't sign on for THAT!" and evaporate like mists in the dawn, effectively eliminating the "movement", since so far those types seem to comprise the bulk of the mobs - but they don't speak for the movement, mind you. They only make up a massive portion of the membership of it, but apparently have no voice in it.

So, we arrive at the stalemate we are at. They won't go away, and won't say why they stay.

And yeah, I do believe that if they came clean and came right out and clearly and unequivocally said what they are after, we would end them as a movement forthwith.

I saw a post earlier claiming that the "people". presumably OWS, had a right to go armed, and the police had no right to intervene.

I had to think about that for just a split second. He may be on to something there. If the sliver of the population in OWS has the right to go armed and employ those arms against other citizens, then by logical extension, so do the rest of the citizens. Perhaps when this starts getting out of hand, the police should go on an extended coffee break, and let the armed citizens on both sides of this divide settle it.

I think that might be the best solution, and it's certainly some Change I Can Believe In!

ironicsurrealism.com...”/

Occupy Portland would like you to report rapes not to the police, but to the herp-derps wearing the pink armbands


“If there are any incidents of sexual violence, um, we want to stress again, um, that confidentiality [Read: Public relations --top priority] is really really really really important. Um…don’t release any information [Cause we at Occupy Portland love letting rapists roam free to rape again and we get a thrill up our legs being all totalitarian like in controlling information] …um, and…if you come across an incident of sexual violence, um, direct them to someone with a pink armband…um, or to the medic tent, um…the medics are also really really rad and um totally on top of their #”.
