Response to JDPriestly (Reply #153)

192. Someone on my Facebook just commented on the Port shutdowns in Oregon

They ship Rye Grass to Europe and are pissed because it didn't happen. Fine. I get that.

But basically she just echoed the talking points that these were just hippies that needed to get a job and a bath like the rest of us.

That's it. That's her understanding of whole movement as Fox News says it is.

Be damned the multiple other cities, Occupy this and that, foreign countries (likely the same Damn ports in Europe could be shut down once her Rye Grass gets there). But they're all dirty Europeans I suppose.

I don't know all the motives of every movement, and this girl's narrow description of the Occupy movement is sad. But I do see that we can get all the people in the world talking about it, but we need people to understand why they are doing it.

She just knows, right or wrong, that a bunch of dirty hippies have kept her seed from being exported. I'm not sure that her exporting of seed needed to be shut down.

I'm learing that I can't even go on Facebook. Either we on this blog are a minority in this morinic teabagging spiteful world, or I just know 20 rightwing teabaggers (whether they profess to be or not) for every single person that sees things my way.

I think this country will fail. Slowly enough we don't notice (the frog in the boiling pot). I don't see common sense and decency making it's way to the majority in this country.
