This rioting going on in Portland, Ore., by the radical groups has gotten way out of hand. The riff-raff who are doing this are not demonstrating about social injustice or whatever they claim to be there for; they are there to be just troublemakers.

This has been going on for two months, entirely too long. The mayor is standing by doing nothing. He won’t let the police do their job. Now, the riff-raff have gone to shining lasers into the eyes of the policemen, blinding them. It is criminal what the mayor is doing. He should be impeached and replaced.

The governor has done nothing to help the situation. He won’t send the National Guard in to help the police. He should be impeached and replaced. The National Guard should be sent in there with weapons at the ready, with fixed bayonets.

Pretzelman jr aka prod, Because you keep crying, you want to destroy the Democratic Party, remember we should gather up the Saudi Republicans and destroy them. They are pure evil!! Talk about ignorant, you evidently don't realize every time you say you want to destroy the Democratic Party I'm going to tell you we need to destroy the Saudi Republicans.

Good morning Driller, and thank you once again for your extremely generous and kind words. Driller, I don't hold your comments against you, I really don't, because your comments are based entirely upon ignorance. I realize that you have always lived in the land of milk and honey, have had an easy life, and have nothing to compare it to. This being the case, you don't know how good you have it. Driller, when I was traveling with my caravan across the sands of Saudi Arabia along with the other Saudi Republicans and Harvabdul Omar Yodakeem-Stoltzfus, I saw a side to life that you have never had the opportunity to witness. When we got out of bed every morning and emerged from our tents, it was the Saudi Republicans who lit the camel dung fires to keep us warm. Harvabdul Omar Yodakeem-Stoltzfus didn't assist with this chore, of course, because he was of the clerical/social justice warrior class, and was not expected to perform such duties. It was his job to make the Saudi Republicans feel guilty about any financial success that we achieved, and to live off the fruits of other people's labor. But anyway, I digress. After the camel dung fires were let, then it was time to cook the oatmeal mixed with warm goat's milk. Before the oatmeal could be cooked, however, we needed to pick out the sand fleas that had congregated (sadly, they congregated in large groups without wearing masks) in our wine skins full of oatmeal. The Saudi Republicans did this, of course, without complaining. We meticulously picked out each and every sand flea before cooking the oatmeal/warm goat's milk mixture over the camel dung fires. Occasionally, a sand scorpion would wander into camp and we would cook and eat those as well to provide extra protein in our diets. We did this over the protests of Harvabdul Omar Yodakeem-Stoltzfus and the other clerics, of course, their concern being that the consumption of meat would create more greenhouse gases, which of course, creates global warming. Anyway, the moral of the story is this Driller: You have a very good life in America, as do we all. You need to stop your whining, and be grateful for what you have. I wish you well in your search for truth, my brother.

Pretzelman jr aka prod, Talk about ignorant, look in the mirror and you will see ignorant. Not knowing anything about what was happening in the United States especially in Appalachia and in the W.Va. coal fields during the 40's and 50's. You were lucky, you could stick a bucket under a camels rear end and get something to make a fire. We had to go out with a two man cross cut saw (not a chain saw) and cut our firewood to get our heat and to fill the wood stove to cook on. If we ran out of wood we had to go out regardless of the weather and cut more wood. We had to grow our own vegetables in a garden that we worked and then we canned as much as we could for later. We sometimes had a beef or hog that we raised and butchered and we canned as much meat as we could. We had a cow to milk everyday to supply our milk. We hunted for our food, also. We wore hand me down clothes and didn't have shoes much of the summer. I have worked hard to get out of poverty and am grateful for what I have EARNED. Don't tell me how easy I had it. Look back in the history books and look at this time and place that I grew up in and tell me how easy I had it. Again, you don't know anything about anything in years past, you think everything in America is gravy. It wasn't. Your trouble was you smoked too much camel dung and the sun fried your brain while you were in the desert. Tell me what I am whining about, again you are delusional. What group brought you over here and set you up with every advantage for you to succeed. I would say it was EMU. It's a shame I didn't have the same help as you got. What I got I got on my own!!!

Good morning Driller, and thank you once again, for your many kind words. Driller, if what you just posted is true (and I have no reason to believe that it is not), then why on planet Earth would you ever vote for a Demokkkrat? You do realize that they look down their noses at people like you, right? The truth of the matter is that they find you detestable. They only want one thing from you: your vote. After they have that, they don't give a rat's rear end about you. Demokkkrats have had much success over the years in convincing people like you that other "rich" people are responsible for your plight, and that if you just cede power to Demokkkrats (like Senator Robert Byrd), they will punish all of those "evil" minorities, Republicans, businessmen, etc., take what those folks have, and give it to you. It's all a lie Driller. It's all a big fat lie, and you have fallen for it, hook, line, and sinker. Come out of the evil Demokkkrat shadows Driller, out of the darkness, and into the light. You are better than this, and truthfully, you are smarter than this. You just need to let go of your bitterness, and take part in all that the land of milk and honey has to offer. I wish you well in your search for truth, my Brother.

sammy-You need to up that medication whining sammy. Also,take a deep breath sammy boy. You are becoming even more deranged and maniacal.

Actually, the riots, vandalism, violence, and overall mayhem taking place in Portland, Seattle, New York City, Chicago, and other Demokkkrat run cities is showing Demokkkrats for exactly who they are. In short, these people are getting what they voted for. I don't think it should be the taxpayers' responsibility to go in an bail out these Demokkkrat mayors, governors, and other "leaders". They created this problem; let them live with the consequences of their poor decisions, and make sure the TV cameras are rolling to capture the images of what unfettered Demokkkrat rule looks like. People need to know what a Biden presidency will look like before stepping into the voting booth.

After what Obama said at Lewis’ funeral service, you have once again been proven correct. He is a despicable person right in lock-step with Pelosi, Schumer and other vile Democrat politicians crazed with desire for power. Just like a drug addict will steal, manipulate and even kill for The next fix. How anyone could vote for these demented souls is truly unimaginable.

Mike Muterspaugh

Obama oozes sleaze and he's a race baiter. He has become even more despicable. .

sammy708

You wanna talk about sleaze Mike, let's talk Trump family! You people have the nerve. How many people around Obama went to prison Mike? You know everything or think you do, Mr. Opinion Writer.

sammy708

News..............again you show your inability to see the elephant in the room. You say "Democrats have the desire to seize power like a crazed drug addict after dope". Where have you been the last 5 decades or so, we have witnessed the addiction to power on the Republican side and they have had no shame in doing anything to achieve that goal of pure power. As we see today, they simply don't have the compassion to govern anybody or anything, only slogans. A empty man in an empty suit! BLACK LIVES MATTER!

prodigalson

Sammy, the left wing Marxist organization "Black Lives Matter" has nothing to do with saving or improving the quality of black lives. It has everything to do with totalitarian rule and communism. If you truly care about black lives, you will vote for President Trump in November. He has improved the quality of life for all Americans, especially black Americans, more than has any Demokkkrat in the past 200 years. Remember Sammy, the Demokkkrat party is the party of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, Planned Parenthood, racial division, pain, and misery. In short, the Demokkkrat party is the party of evil and death. We must destroy this wicked party before it destroys our beautiful country. I wish you well in your search for truth, my brother.

Driller

Sammy, Great post!! I agree with you 100%.
