It's disgusting to see people on social media saying "oooo they're all liberals that wanna loot, riot and destroy our country! Let em burn"
What have we come to as people?! Instead of feeling sympathy and compassion, we hate each other so much!
You know, disasters usually bring people together, help your neighbors out right???
It's just very sad to see the state our society Is in!
I've always wondered if the worlds always been shitty and I'm just now realizing, or it really is getting worse! Lol
Stay safe everyone! Much love! :peace:

This is what "nuclear winter" would be like, I think. The temps dropped 28 degrees from the forecast, ash raining on everything and it smells like smoke, not a nice campfire smoke, either, there's got to be a lot of toxic fumes in it, too.
The lives lost is heartbreaking, but the wildlife lost makes me cry, too.

2 days ago, all the smoke blew into vegas and our air was deemed poisonous!
Very scary to think you're breathing in toxic shit!

If it is someone that you actually know is a human (if not I would bet a troll account (foreign or domestic) they are likely hearing far worse on a daily basis in whatever chat circles they are in by the trolls in that forum. It sucks, and gives people a false sense of cover for the hateful 'jokes' they make.

You're probably right! Lol no one I knew personally, probably a troll! Just sad though man! Why do people gotta spread hate! Especially in times like these!

Anything and everything is being used from any angle. The whole goal is to illicit a response from people. Insert the dynamic that someone is being an asshole about something that can't be unseen. That ramps up the actual human person reading it tension anytime they think of it, like my posting this here made that memory a little more real in your brain when you thought about it and posted that.

Eventually it will get tied to politics, and that is when all those reactions people have had to the trolling is collected and calculated and the real propaganda gets produced and microtargetted to ignite fights with actual friends/family so you can't talk rationally without social land-mines triggering people.

And the thing is that everyone that's been arrested for arson or looting are rednecks that are definitely not liberals. Here in Oregon you have the meth head racist types cruising into evacuated area's breaking into people's homes and stealing property.

For those that are unfamiliar with the kind of smoke we're having, it completely blocks out the sun.

I've circled the sun. It's inside the red circle. And on the ground you can actually see the smoke. It's like a cigarette smoker blew out a drag a couple seconds ago and has dissipated but is still visible. Smells like a campfire. And there are places where it's much thicker than here in Portland.

That's 100% smoke. Not clouds.

You mean the people who sent in Trump's HSA goons to kidnap and interrogate the people of Portland? The people who supported Trump when he said he was going to "go in and clean out Portland"?

Nah, I don't want their hopes and prayers. They are dirtier than the air is in the Willamette Valley at this moment. Their anger and violence towards us means we are hitting them close to home. Like when you throw a rock and hit a hive of wasps.

No wonder they are angry. We are going to get through these times but when the fires die down in a few days, we'll still be here. We are going to help people who suffered get back on their feet. We'll be here, living in a wonderful state with a beautiful coast, a coastal range that contains old growth temperate rain forests, the Cascade mountain range and the desert-plains to the east. It's a liberal state with a Democratically controlled government and even Republicans say they cannot see a time when they are in power again. So, I'm OK with them hating on us. When it's over, we'll be in Oregon, our economy is growing faster than the rest of the nation. We'll be fine and they will be in their trashy clapped out trailer homes living on food stamps, complaining about Oregon. Let them have their sour grapes.
