Check this out!

This is a great tent city. I love it. As one observer said, “These people are pretty hardcore. The fact that even one person camps out for this is unbelievable to me.” I’ll say. I really admire their dedication and perserverance. They believe in what they’re doing and are committed to it. So glad to hear that the Occupiers in Oakland are taking Frank Ogawa park back after the cops trashed it and made it a mud pit and… what? That’s not Oakland?

Well, Portland then. Great! I was getting really worried about them last night, what with them getting thrown out of the parks because they had set up a tent city and … um, that’s not Portland either?

Denver? No??

Ok, I give up.

It’s a Twilight: Breaking Dawn fan tent city? And they’re allowed to just pitch tents in front of the theater four days in advance so they don’t miss the first showing of the movie.

Wait, where’s the teargas and pepper impact bullets? Where are the mounted police? Where are the helicopters? Where are the Tea Party grouchy old people muttering about dirty hippies on their lawns? Well, as long as it’s only a bunch of silly teenagers mooning over some vampire-human interspecies snogging. We just don’t want them carrying signs and shouting about letting their little light shine or anything like that.

On the other hand, if Oakland and Portland can’t find a place to pitch their tents, they might want to consider a theater parking lot. Edward or Jacob? Sparkly skin guy or washboard abs?

For Occupy Portland

Here’s hoping they found a place to sleep.
