Up against the mall

Well, it's May Day, and the angry and the dissatisfied are out in the streets, venting. About a dozen have been arrested in Portland so far. They chanted for a while inside the Pioneer Place mall, then adjourned for a Cinnabon. Jeffer-Sam Smith is out working the crowd in his business suit -- pretty funny.

In Seattle, it's quite a bit more violent. They're busting windows on stores and cars. The federal courthouse and the Washington Athletic Club have also had glass shattered. It sounds a lot nastier up there than down here.

Anyway, we're finding it hard to get too worked up in either direction today. Readers who want up-to-the-minute news should head over here and follow the twittering Tweets.

Comments (25)

Nothing makes me want to support the cause more than paying a couple of hundred dollars to replace a shattered car window.

Now that is progressive thinking!

You have to admit that the police simply standing by and allowing a mob to illegally enter a house owned by another and do nothing is a bit crazy. If I'm the company that legally owns the house that was "liberated" today, I'm having my attorney look into civil actions against those involved. I know most are probably "judgment proof", but I hope somebody gets to find out how judgment proof they really are.

Obviously these people are out of touch. Chanting at Pioneer Place? Imagine their surprise when they realized nobody shops downtown anymore. Should be at Bridgeport Village or Washington Square. But that's probably too far to ride a skateboard and the bus service out there is not too great, either. Oh well, just have to stay downtown and rail against the man on Twitter.

Five were busted in Cleveland for trying to blow up a bridge.

But these folks here are just fair-weather protesters: they were going to "Occupie" Oswego Lake until it got cold and rainy, then they all retreated to Mom's basement, snacking on cheetos and high-fiving each other on social media.

Leaving a local market today, I hopped into my man-made global warming conveyance, and the news came on. Naturally, it was about Occupie, and featured a brief interview with a young lady from Scio, who had come up to Portland to - as she put it - "stand against disparage - um, dispar - um, whatever".

It was a perfect interview, which combined with her stated home, reminded me of the famous Scio Barbie:

What if Mattel were to make Oregon city-specific Barbie dolls? They might end up something like this:

Scio Barbie: Pregnant at purchase, this Barbie comes with a stroller and bus pass. Also included is a G.E.D. and a completely filled out food stamps form. Construction worker Ken and his '82 Caddy are optional. Available at Value Village.

I laughed all the way home.

Occupy would be hilarious if it weren't so mindless and pathetic.

We could count the ways, but lack sufficient bandwidth.

Question for the real lawyers that visit here:

Real estate data basses like Zillow and indicate Alicia Jackson bought the house at 523 Bryant Street in 2004 for $ 130,000. In June of 2011 she defaulted to FCI Lender Services more than $312,000 on her mortgage. I would speculate this was the result of cash out refinancing (possibly multiple times).

So while she acts like she was making payments, she was in effect, being paid to stay there and never had any equity.

Her home was foreclosed and residency terminated (voluntarily) at that time.

Now she ignores the action of the court forcing the owner to evict her AGAIN.

At what point does her occupancy become criminal, not civil?

How many times should a mortgage holder have to evict on a a foreclosure?

"Obviously these people are out of touch. Chanting at Pioneer Place? Imagine their surprise when they realized nobody shops downtown anymore. Should be at Bridgeport Village or Washington Square."

The reason people shop at BV or WS is because that is where the shops are, there's free parking for their customers and security keeps the riff-raff under control. The reason the shops went there is because they can be protected (even if selling furs!) they have free parking and no riff-raff to hassle people.

That is the future, BV and other private properties. Downtowns like Ptown will continue to die a slow death.

Also Seattle, Vancouver, Salem, Eugene, Medford, San Francisco ... Mosier.
From Natchez to Mobile, from Memphis to St. Jo',
wherever the four winds happen to blow ...

As if 'John Law' is really really going to show the splinter groups -- the neighbors and kids of neighbors of the cops -- what losers they are?

And who is to blame for "Scio Barbie", pregnant at purchase, woefully ignorant, and on welfare?
Could it possibly that our school system has failed not only her but her parents as well? That the industries that could have provided a decent living, health insurance, and paid taxes, were either forced out of business or simply ignored by government to settle or continue on doing business in the state or in any state?
Ignorance, unwanted children producing more unwanted children, and lack of basic necessities costs everyone. If this nation and the people of this state do not come to our senses and start realizing that everyone needs to contribute to the general good then we are doomed.
If that is socialism so be it...income inequality is bad for our country. The USA was most prosperous when the income gap between rich and not so rich was less.
Not only do I feel sympathy for "Scio Barbie", but I believe we all need to help her get a decent education, job skills, health insurance and some birth control.
That will cost money and the obscenely rich need to start paying their share NOW!

meanwhile, in the real world, most Americans were at Occupy Work today.

I don't understand somethings about Scio Barbie.

Scio Barbie: Pregnant at purchase, this Barbie comes with a stroller and bus pass. Also included is a G.E.D. and a completely filled out food stamps form. Construction worker Ken and his '82 Caddy are optional. Available at Value Village.

There is neither Public Transportation nor construction jobs in Scio. The only use she might have for a bus pass would be for the school bus. And Construction Worker Ken was laid off long ago. He is now Meth Dealer Ken.

Whatever, PN. Yhat's one of the differences between Lefties and Righties - Righties have a sense of humor. What's particularly amusing to me is that around here, folks are referred to as "tighty righties" - when clearly it's the Lefties who get their panties in a twist over every imagined injustice.

Personally, I don't have an Apple computer or an iPhone - that company has more money than many countries; they can do without mine. Yet you never see Leftists griping about that disparity. Golly, I wonder why.

I guess you missed the long article in the NYT about Apple's tax dodging ways...along with many other large corporations, like GE and Microsoft.
Read it and find out all about the Double Irish and the Dutch sandwich.
Last time I checked the NYT is pretty left leaning compared to Faux News and the other Murdock information agencies.

And are the occupiers divesting themselves of their iPhones and such ?

PN: Feb 20, 2007 3:00 pm

Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs laid into teachers unions Friday at a Texas education reform conference, an Austin, Texas, newspaper reported, saying they're "what's wrong with our schools."

Jobs went further and criticized teachers' unions and the hurdle they created for education reform.

"Until the teachers' unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform,"

Oddly, I don't see a lot of Leftists griping about Apple.

Now, had a "tighty righty" said those things, it'd be all over the media, night after night.

As I noted, Leftists are largely bereft of humor. Personally, I found it amusing that the lady from Scio was um, whatever. It really fit with the occupie stance, and I found it amusing. Especially when I flashed back on the Scio Barbie thing.

You don't, and instead get all worked up into a lather. That's also amusing.

Lefties, after all, have driven productive industries out of the state while giving millions in taxpayer funds to the Vestas and the Solyndras, the light rail/streetcar mafia, and condo developers. Every bit of that has come from Lefties, not from "tighty righties". The state is in shambles due to the efforts of people who espouse the very "values" that you've stated above. Of course, as John mentions, that's why we now have a meth dealer Ken.

Perhaps you'll find another Barbie more to your liking - or perhaps you'll work yourself into another lather of righteous indignation:

Eugene Barbie: This Barbie is made out of recycled plastic and tofu. She has long straight brown hair, archless feet, hairy armpits, no make-up, and Birkenstocks with white socks. She does not want, or need, a Ken doll. If you purchase the optional Subaru wagon, you will receive a free rainbow flag sticker. Available at REI.

Well, Max, it heartens me to sense that Occupy occupies your mind.

I wish I could express the same idea as good as Stephen King wrote it up today:
(said so saucy that just the title of his piece is NSFW)

I’ve known rich people, and why not, since I’m one of them?

... I pointed out that I was paying taxes of roughly 28 percent on my income. My question was, “How come I’m not paying 50?”

Last year during the Occupy movement, the conservatives who oppose tax equality saw the first real ripples of discontent. Their response was either Marie Antoinette (“Let them eat cake”) or Ebenezer Scrooge (“Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?”). Short-sighted, gentlemen. Very short-sighted. If this situation isn’t fairly addressed, last year’s protests will just be the beginning. Scrooge changed his tune after the ghosts visited him. Marie Antoinette, on the other hand, lost her head.

Think about it.

S.King saying all that by way of throwing Chris Christie, Governor, and, by extension all of New Jersey up against he wall.

Meth Ken & Eugene Barbie -- Ha ha! Good parody! And don't forget their androgynous friend, "Truth Skipper, cub reporter" -- makes for a great Rose Bowl party! Go by handcar!!

PN, you say, "income inequality is bad for our country" - really? So are you wanting your grocery bagger to be making $200K a year or are you asking the medical doctor to be satisfied with $10/hr? Which is it? You will either end up with some VERY expensive groceries or a major shortage of doctors.

You say, "... lack of basic necessities..." and exactly what would those be? Let's take one of them, transportation. Well, we most of us have the most basic transportation, our two feet. Some move up to a bike. From there comes the jump to mass transit (be it bus or rail). Then those who wish to do whatever it takes to earn more, save more, and buy and support a car move to it. So what exactly do you believe that we should consider the 'base/basic' for transportation? Feet? Bike? Mass transit? Automobile? See, from my 'tighty-whitey' viewpoint, most of us already have that really baseline of transportation, your feet. If you want more, the more is incentive to work for it. But, you say, I can't afford much more on my $10/hr grocery bagger salary. Hmmmm, then maybe you should study and find a line of work that pays more, or do you prefer to play video games or party or do something other than increase your chances of improving your lot in life. Life isn't a rose garden, the world doesn't owe you a thing, you want something, figure out a legal way of obtaining it. Quit waiting around for it to get handed to you. If you ONLY do what everyone else does (play video games, do drugs, party) then you'll get what everyone else is getting; maybe a bike, probably mass transit and you'll complain all the while. See, the opportunities have been there, are still there, but they've always taken extra effort to achive. This generation, more than previous ones, seems unwilling to put in that extra effort; and it's sad. Made sadder by the constant whine about what they don't have and how they are owed (no they are not).

And Max, loved the Barbie's - spot on and very funny. Got one for Portland Barbie?

Let's all take a run @Portland Barbie! Who's on, first?

Portland Barbie: "The former underage sex partner of a local politician, Portland Barbie failed to wakeup in time to catch the Rose Festival train ride with the over-60 crew of old men in weird white get-ups who ride the Rose Festival 'Princesses' out to eastern Oregon's hazardous waste dump for the annual 'R.F.P. Round-Up,' branding, and tattooing. Portland Barbie's outstanding skills are sincerely indifferent coffee making, lesbian performance art, bad boyfriending, nude tall-bike urban downhill 'bombing' & collect calls home."

That whole "Special Edition Barbie" thing was all over the internets about 4 years ago:

Because nothing is more hilarious than extreme stereotypes!

I think what we should do is belittle the protesters using snarky references to how lazy they are. Because, I mean, really there's nothing at all for them to complain about.

We should just get back to our regularly scheduled local corruption whine-fest. Because that's real effective.

Yup Max and Mojo you righties are a riot. "former underage sex partner"... freaking hilarious. "bus pass and a stroller" Hahaha, good one. Oh, and the man-hating Lesbo jokes--so 90s Rush. So classic. Did you hear the one about coyote ugly?

Portland Barbie: This modern day homemaker Barbie is available with a Mercedes 4WD SUV, a Prada handbag and matching Nike Yoga ensemble. She has a masters degree and double-majored, but has the luxury of being a stay-at-home mom with Ken's generous salary. Comes with Percocet prescription and Botox. Starbucks mug and traffic-jamming Blackberry internet/cell phone device sold separately. Husband Ken is into fishing, golfing, baseball and is often "working late." Available at all Portland-area Starbucks retailers.

Shad - you seem to be exactly what I was describing. Work yourself into a state of righteous indignation if it turns you on. As somebody mentioned, it was on the internet some time back. And that hateful, bigoted, church-attending radio host, Bob Miller, read it on the air and was unable to contain his laughter.

Isn't that just awful? You should file a complaint.

Max, That barbie doesn't sound much like pdx to me. Pretty much any big city has its fair share of "limousine liberals," and on the west coast the Cali cities come much closer to your witty sterotype then Portlanders. Ken's a little closer to the mark.

Regardless, David Brooks wrote this much better then you in "Bobos in Paradise". Hell PJ O'Rouke has made a career out of it (Although he hasn't been funny since the 80's). I am not sure if you ever watch 30rock, or the Parks and Recreation, or of course, Portlandia, but the liberal elitist do-gooder who hates real people is a pretty standard trope. And it's funny.

All I was saying is that you choices aren't particularly funny. They're dated and kinda lame--although they might rile up a chuckle or two. Mojo's doesn't even warrant a chuckle its just stupid and offensive, at least your's had some intellectual consistency to them. Ever wonder why the two funniest daily shows are done by liberals (TDS& Colbert), or why 90% of comedians are liberals?

As to the rest of your comment--I have no idea what you are talking about, but I suspect you are right I would be offended at how inane the humor is.

Good day, Sir. I am sure we'll talk again sometime.
