    DUMB BILL Republicans in OR have introduced a bill which basically classifies any form of protest against the war as “terrorism.” Upon conviction, a life sentence will be imposed with no parole for 25 years.

    SECTION 1. { + (1) A person commits the crime of terrorism if the person knowingly plans, participates in or carries out any act that is intended, by at least one of its participants, to disrupt:
    (a) The free and orderly assembly of the inhabitants of the State of Oregon;
    (b) Commerce or the transportation systems of the State of Oregon; or
    (c) The educational or governmental institutions of the State of Oregon or its inhabitants.
    (2) A person commits the crime of terrorism if the person conspires to do any of the activities described in subsection (1) of this section.

    So, all those kids who walked out of class a week ago would have been guilty of terrorism. Let’s just go a little overboard, huh? This is great example of how Libertarians and Republicans don’t see eye-to-eye. Fortunately, this bill has absolutely 0% chance of getting past OR’s Democratic governor.
