Re: “Homeless Campers Want City to "Stop Sweeping Humans"

This just in...Portland Mayor and City Council allow developers to run amok, displace tenants, demolish perfectly livable homes to build unaffordable ugly housing and increase numbers of homeless people.

Re: “An Oatmeal Testimony

Co-dependents Anonymous might be a good group to consider. I wonder why you would submit yourself to this role?

Re: “Dating the Homeless

I think this is a time to take a good look at your life.
Maybe food carts,strolling minstrels,and a lure to the dark side are your problems.
Love is sometimes fickle,and the call of the wild is what drives you. This will end terrible.

Re: “Who Runs This Place?

Get a life? How about if your life is hell because there is a floating party hotel next door? Or if you have run a bed and breakfast for 20 years and must close because there are hundreds of people paying no taxes or other business costs and can undercut you.

Following the rules is overrated. Who gets ahead that way? And imagine all of the money flowing from Airbnb and Uber right into the city, ahem, I mean the politicians who are supposed to be enforcing this law.

If these companies won't follow the law, do it for them.

Re: “Dating the Homeless

That really sucks. Try this. Tell him there's a folk festival in Portland, Maine (is that far enough?). As much as you'd like to go, and you'll miss him hugely, and be careful on the road.......once the American Idol is gone take the Col.'s last bit of advice ASAP. Try to cover your trail.

Those god-damned, god-damned guitars. Women just can't freaking resist a guy with a god-damned, god-damned guitar.

Re: “Dating the Homeless

Every cell in my body is telling me this rant is fake.

In the off chance that some of this is true, that dude waved almost every imaginable dating red flag right in your face.

What you're feeling now is known as DCSS. That stands for Delayed Common Sense Syndrome.

Re: “Newsflash: Newbies Aren't Ruining Portland (But Here's Something That Might)

listen you dopes, by the time escape from new york pizza was opening up shop, and my own private idaho and drugstore cowboy were being filmed here, portland had already been "discovered". in fact it had already been discovered 100 years earlier too, when lumberman, outlaws, chinese railroad workers, folks on the lam and on the run made their way west and moved to good old portland. its not anything new. really..i repeat, noooothing new. its the same old cycle of urbanity. creative types move to a downtrodden area, do the heavy lifting and make things a bit more vibrant. people take notice and start to move there when things get nicer, eventually even more well heeled interests take notice, buy up property and start even larger operations. rents rise and it all becomes expensive. shake, repeat in some other neighborhood. new york city 1976. the city was near bankruptcy and told to go to hell. real estate was cheap in the early 80s and now those people have made a mint. clinton street, 1999. buy a house for under 200k. 2015, more like 350k or higher. real estate is a boom and bust cycle, and right now were in a boom. if you want to see divey old portland at its finest, well there is an entire half a county just waiting to be explored, east of 205. go there sometime......

Re: “Dating the Homeless

If he really has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and isn't yet receiving Social Security Disability benefits, it takes about seven or nine months, provided he applies through an attorney. That's about as much shit as you can rightfully expect him to get together, however, as long as he has a home, then he's at least got a shot at the real shit. You guys ought to start growing weed.

Re: “Everything as Fuck

No, Las Vegas is Disneyland and Portland is right behind it. It's basically turning into the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace minus the roof. Portland WAS old Milwaukee, NOW it's fucking Disneyland!

Re: “Dating the Homeless

People who don't have their shit together at a certain point of adulthood, won't ever get it together in most cases. It will most likely lead to a string of empty promises and endless resource suckage.

Re: “Dating the Homeless

Do not panic. Hobo invasion is very common this time of year and it is actually quite easy to rid yourself of them. Hobo's are very attracted to empty bottles for the deposit return. Place the empties in various locations nearest the doors of your abode and when the hobo collects them and takes them to Fred Meyer move the fuck out and don't leave a note.

Anyone can file a criminal complaint if need be. The adults probably both failed to mention that the girl was assaulted.
