Worthless Being Wednesday

Worthless members of the Ammo-N-Camo club.

The arrested militiamen of the Oregon refuge occupation have had extensive previous run-ins with the law – and a history of anti-government protests that federal officials are now using against them in court.

In recent filings in federal court in Portland, prosecutors have detailed the criminal histories of the 11 people facing felony charges for their involvement in the armed occupation of the Malheur national wildlife refuge, which began 2 January and continues to drag on this week with no end in sight.

The men’s rap sheets include cases of domestic violence, illegal firearm possession, terrorist threats, resisting arrest and drug crimes, according to the court records.

Last Tuesday, militia leader Ammon Bundy was arrested on a remote highway in rural Harney County, occupation spokesperson LaVoy Finicum was shot and killed by police and a number of high-profile participants in the rightwing standoff were taken into custody.

The protesters, who say they seized government buildings to protest federal regulations of public lands, now face charges of impeding federal officers from discharging official duties, which could carry prison sentences of up to six years.

    It was 48° this morning. Heavy fog, then a roaring sun came out. It’s been sunny off and on, and now it’s very windy. I better not walk Quincy near any of our trees.

    Discussed Journey with Jill. She definitely learned her lesson and knows she can’t foster a dog, or have 2 dogs. Too much work and prevents her from doing the things she needs to do, the things she likes to do. We talked about if I should foster her, but no. If her and Quincy had a fight I wouldn’t be able to break it up. Better she goes to the Boxer Rescue ladies house. She’s used to have dogs, it’s her avocation.

    Another reason I dare not keep her, Jill found out she’s 9 years old so Vet bills aren’t far away. Now that Bob doesn’t work anymore we only have our SS to live on, and since everything constantly goes up, we’ll only hurt ourselves if we have to pay Vet bills. All these reasons made me choke up. *sniff* Wish I weren’t old. Wish Bob still worked.

      Don’t feel alone, SS is my only income too and it sux being poor after a life of good income is yanked away because you are too old to compete in the 30-something middle management suck-up workforce.

    Just 23.5 minutesto Swilly’s so definitely faster with the shorter sticks.

    Also might help to use the stopwatch feature of the mobile device.

    Twitter getting weird, can’t read others’ comments, jarringly (much computer-blinking) opening their page too.
