if cyclists want bike lanes let them pay for licences and registrations to pay for it. hell, i'll even chip in some of the fees that i pay to own and run a car. no prob. we all need to get around.
but can we please stop the shit (human fecal matter) from spilling into willamette river. the government of portland needs to stop diverting funds from incredibly important public works projects into initiatives that only benefit 10% local population. for a city that claims to be "green-minded" i can't believe that we ignore the cesspool in the middle of the city. as citizens we should all be outraged.
The Chart of Complaints makes me really wish I could read the rest.
Ha ha, that spam comment actually feels like it fits in this thread!
I'm going to call up the complaint line and just say: "Restaurant food *is* way too salty."
Last time I checked, most people love living in Portland. There are so many places for right-wing, religious-freak nutcases to live and just a few left for us sensible/rational people who like it here and make it such a great place to live.
You'd think the nutcases would expend their energy moving to one of the many shithole cities in the US that are dominated by religious nutcases and others of their ilk rather than spending time making useless phone calls to a voicemail system.
That's what I did when i got sick of living in one of the US's largest, southern dumps run by inbred, hateful, illiterate rednecks. Three cheers for Portland!!! One of the few places left where right-wing psychos still live fruitless, hopeless, frustrated existences.
More bike lanes, please!!
Restaurant food *is* way too salty.
proof that motorists are vulgar, ignorant and angry. maybe its from spending all that money, or the guilt of making us invade other countries for the convenience of driving a few blocks to buy more plastic. i'd need to be ignorant too in order to live that way. i'd probably have other personality disorders too.
Storm Large may have made some questionable choices and made some mistakes in life (who has'nt?) , however she has overcome that and gives to others selflessly. She has had to get through hard times in life, and I can tell you that having met her personally, she is a tremendous person. People like the tool that left that message feel they are qualified to judge others based on their morality and choices really sicken me. Many people with that have made those choices did so because they felt unloved or empty inside. Way to crack on some for that. As for the bike thing....whateva. Portland is a city with nine million fringe groups and interests who feel theirs is the supreme concern. There is nothing wrong with bike commuting, but you are not supremely entitled. I do however very much agree with building and expanding the bike lanes for everyone's benefit
"Oh no! Not Lars Larson, 750 KXL! He's even worse than Mike Tyson!"
Larson makes you wish you never even had ears...

Something needs to be done about that black mamba.
The comments on here are almost as funny as the transcripts. Everyone hates everyone, lol
HA! April 7, 2010, 9:36 am comment about ditching some council members, but keeping Erik Sten is great! That Sten left his post on April 4th, 2008, 2 years and 3 day before this message was left, seems to be irrelevant to the caller!

God damn, you're all a bunch of babies. Everyone just shut the fuck up and show a little respect to one another. You worthless pieces of shit. Sort of like that.
Keep crying and fantasizing about cars "disappearing' you illiterate stoners - as the diminishing tax base that pays your way flees for real and you're forced to try and survive.
I really wish people would stop hating on cyclists. You guys think bike lanes are a waste of tax dollars? We'll see who's laughing when fossil fuels are extinguished, and your fat McDonalds ass can't get home to Beaverton.
Do you think a 12 Y.o. girl prostitutes her self because she wants to or maybe its better to be with a pimp and hoe then to get raped by moms boyfriend while mom pretends its not happening and then tells her the next day" Your not going to school in that you look like a whore!",but when even an old man offers you $100 just to stroke you while he jacks off you dont feel as much of a whore as your moms boyfriend made you feel.Thats just one example!
As everyone knows they just started a :"john" school that the county granted a huge amount of money for,you complete the class,pay your fine and it doesnt go on your record,we couldnt get enough money to get an emergency shelter for when these girls are ready to leave,there is no place for them to go.Do you really think a 12 y.o. does this because she wants to or is being with a pimp and on the street making money easier then being raped by moms boyfriend for nothing and you know mom knows about it and is looking the other way!
I would just like to say that I am an educator of a STARBASE, and although there is a military presence at STARBASE occasionally, we do not force the idea upon them. In fact, we spend a great deal of time helping to focus the students on what their goals for their future are. There are very few students that ever say their goal is to be in the military. Most of the students who do say that are actually the children of retired or active duty soldiers. I have a brother that has been changed by the time he spent in Iraq in 2003, and I have a little bit of a chip on my shoulder because of it, but I am not anti-military. I know that what we are doing is making a difference in these children's lives and they have a much bigger appreciation of S.T.E.M. areas! I have met college age students who still giggle with excitement when they talk about the experiences they had in STARBASE as a fifth grader! It is a wonderful program that is, at the least, very beneficial to showing students that "THEY CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING THEY PUT THEIR MINDS TOO", whether it be within the military or outside as a regular ole' cititzen. I think what I see in a lot of these posts is a lot of ignorance. At our program we never ever ever try to shut out the public. We are constantly trying to get the public more involved anyway we can. We welcome anyone who wants to volunteer time to come in and enjoy the experiments with us. Anyone that has actually SEEN the program in action, would agree that it is not our goal to be churning out a bunch of militant soldiers for our government. I can almost bet that a lot of the same people bitching about this are the same parents that have bought their children games such as HALO or Call of Duty. IGNORANCE! Have you ever sat down and played these games? These games teach them more about killing and weapons and wars than any STARBASE teacher could ever try to in 25 hours!!! Educate yourselves, get proof, stop being hypicritical...and then you can bitch!!!
I wish they would also go after the 'johns' or customers. Their names should be listed in the papers along with the DUI's. Let's put some social pressure on these creeps, who, by the way, would be happy to be doing this to your daughters and sisters, too ! Kudos to Reed College and Portland State for helping raise funds for this much needed shelter. They 'get' it! Let's get on our bikes and help out.
