What is probably more pathetic was your grades in any sort of science classes, funkyside.
We seem to be creeping closer and closer to the Brazil of the 80s, where the cops were nothing more than savage thugs for drug lords and big-money interests, greeting the dawn by terrorizing and murdering street people, people who couldn't bribe them and had no hope of rising out of the shanties and into respectable slums.
This sort of thing should be cause for popular uproar, even violent citizen uprising, because it flies in the face of the freedom and dignity we claim to cherish (but which has been supplanted by comfort and convenience) and is a reversal of the progress we've made from the halcyon days of god emperors and robber barons.
Maybe when cities like Clackamas and Beaverton become shanty towns and everyone's ladled out Soylent Green in church meals lines once a day, maybe then we'll wake up to the diligence and accountability that democracy and justice require. Me, I'm under a freeway wallowing in combat fatigue beneath a tarp, waiting for the cops.
re: 300: Rise of An Empire - Curious to know how "blood and glory" constitutes a "homoerotic nightmare"? Fit men in speedos certainly would fall under the category of homoerotic FANTASY. The blood, glory and martial war-chants? Those are definitely parts of a male HETEROerotic fantasy. *shrug* (Oh, and considering they were acting against a green-screen for 90% of it, 300 had some damn fine acting. Butler, Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Lena Headey etc. The sequel? Not so much.)
Ann Ann Ann...you proto-fascist, supposedly logical, free-thinking Gen-Xer...
No, vaccines ALONE do not cause autism...but vaccines plus widespread tylenol use do...in case you look beyond your smug, pharma-boot-licking nose.
And with regard to fluoride, have you not done any research beyond what you are fed by the media? And noticed that every Scandinavian country, all of which have better health and longevity than the US, ban fluoride in their water? Gee, I wonder if they have a reason.
Pretty sad that a columnist for an "alternative" paper just buries her head in the sand.
I find Portland pretty mild on the street ranting issue, compared to a lot of other cities I've been to. Call me weird. I like Portland, warts and all.
Remember when it was called Personnel Dept. Was that too P inC? Yeah! Human Resources is so much more personable. Could it be more sterile and non-descriptive? Humans to a corporation are like minerals. Now why in the world would anybody think they don't have our best interests at heart? I know "What's in a Name"?
Portland is (in)famous for shitty customer service, especially from employees at "cool" establishments. I have no doubt that those complaining about getting few/no tips are the same employees who are providing shitty customer service. It's hard to sympathize with them.
I have tipped Home Depotees, when they help me load mulch or carry timber, but like Seentomuch says, generally you can't find help. Not snooping into your base pay I/anon, but I'll bet it's quite a bit better than a waitperson.
Regarding the vaccine comment, it never fails to amaze me that proto-fascists Ann and Wm Humpty just accept whatever the pharmacoindustrial complex tell them is the truth.
Or they would know that vaccines don't cause autism, but vaccines in combination with tylenol does.
And re fluoride, they would know that all of the Scandinavian countries, which have a much better level overall health than the US, ALL ban fluoride in their water supplies.
But its a lot easier to just turn off your brain, isn't it Ann?
For writers at an "alternative" paper, your uncritical acceptance of the status quo is really pathetic.
I'm not sure why you conflate the CUB's report with impartiality.
This measure is a complete clusterfuck. It's not "partiality" to acknowledge it.
Hump the tailpipe.
Wrapped up like a douche and a motor in the night?
Wayyyyy to long.
How about this:
I'm so sick of ____, those fuckers are always ____ and it pisses me off because ____ and___. Furthermore, _____ a ____ or _____ .Otherwise _____. Ya fuckers. Also _____ for a ____ bitch.
See? So much easier on the peepers....
It is a Dan post! Sometimes the backend of our blogging platform goes kerblooey. Thanks, and fixed!
Hey, sleeves are a privilege, mister!
"It must be the muuu-sk!"

Well, Colonel, you are getting a tad bit gray. With your eyes, try L'Oreal medium ash brown, and don't go near the water.
FRED ARE WE ALL GOING TO DIE???
Personally, I find screaming in orgasmic ecstasy much more satisfying while pooping than a mere series of grunts. Just sayin...if you got it, flaunt it.
