Police, Occupy protesters head for Ore. showdown – Yahoo! News

1. Let’s apply the same reasoning and shut down our government, which is also full of drug users (and dealers) and thieves — and sex harassers, torturers, and war criminals.

2. Sam Adams is a disgrace to his namesake.

3. Sam Adams should make a beer honoring the Occupy movement, because now their brew leaves a bad taste in my mouth: fascism. Maybe the brewers should sue the mayor for ruining their good name?
