Bundy revolt appears to fade

http://registerguard.com/rg/news/local/34859110-75/bundy-revolt-appears-to-fade.html.csp

"PORTLAND — It has been a difficult few months for the Bundys.

Ten months after two brothers from this country’s most notorious ranching family staged an audacious, armed occupation of a wildlife sanctuary in Eastern Oregon, their call to shift federal land to local control has softened to a whisper. Some of their allies have abandoned them, and almost a dozen fellow occupiers have pleaded guilty to federal charges.

Outside the downtown courthouse where the brothers, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and five others are on trial for conspiracy, their supporters have dwindled to a handful of self-­described patriots carrying pocket Constitutions and lamenting their shrunken ranks.

“I had hoped there would be hundreds of people here, but there’s not,” said Jason Patrick, 44, tugging on a cigarette not far from a Black Lives Matter rally that had more than 100 participants. “Why wouldn’t you come to the most pressing court case of your time?”"

4. I've certainly

got no problem at all with pocket constitutions.

Some reading comprehension needs to go along with them, though.

5. Can't fade fast enough to suit me.

I still say we shoulda stopped 'em at the Oregon border and confiscated their pocket constitutions, since I'm pretty sure they don't have a clue about its contents beyond the Second Amendment they quote but clearly don't understand. As for the "most pressing court case of your time"...gimme a break! What a bunch of idiots!

I would like to attend the most pressing court case of our time, but I live in Portland, Oregon and it's too far to D.C.

8. can we send them a basket of deplorable dildos instead?

"when Portland sends us their dildos, they aren't sending the best dildos. they're hollow, made of cheap plastic, rigid, with molding irregularities poking out from the sides that needs to be trimmed off before use. and some of them, i assume, are good dildos."
