Rick's friend first bets him he wouldn't run for president. Well, Rick Perry, being the man he is, didn't want to look foolish (he's obviously very careful with that), so he ran to prove his friend wrong. But then he came to an epiphany realizing, "What the fuck am I doing? Am I really going to run for president based on a bet? How do I get out of this yet not look like a wimp to my friends? I KNOW! I'll run an ad campaign that will kill two birds with one stone: It will bluntly bash gays AND make sure that no one but the worst right-wing fanatics vote for me!"
Occupy Boise made national PBS tonight with some pretty good coverage that offers a bit of insight into how we have been able to sustain ourselves and have yet to have a confrontation with the police:
OccupyBOI coverage begins around 5:30...you can see me periodically throughout leading chants until I'm hoarse and at one point, I am seen in the background of an interview pulling my pants up and or picking a wedgie.
I know most people dont even care about this, but I found it pretty interesting. Vancouver released it's home assessments a few days ago and the line between the "have a shit ton' and 'have less than a shit ton' is absoutly amazing.
Blue dots indicate houses worth more that $1million and red dots indicate houses worth less than $1million. Appartments arent on here, which is why downtown is virtually empty.
The interesting thing is that the clearly defined line between the reds and the blues happens to be the street that is the middle of the city. Every address on the left is the West (rich) half of Vancouver and the right is the East (less rich) half of Vancouver. I knew Vancouver was a very status heavy city, but holy balls I had no idea having a W in your address was worth so much more than having an E in your address.
