Re: “Take Your City and Shove It!

OKKK...I now know why all of the City Of Portland vehicles have the logo or should I say low go, "Portland...The City That Works" They only work the members of the SS. Who knew?

I don't like Cars, but there not going away any time soon. I just hope the people that drive them, aren't asshole-tea bagging types like the ones leaving these messages. The angrier they get, the more likelier they'll leave, the safer I'll feel commuting on my trusty steel-framed steed.

Re: “Take Your City and Shove It!

@el dulce - care to share how much you paid - or will that classy pic of your hipster glasses have to speak for the 'massive' amounts that you make? @el dulce+D - you both equally sound like self-important morons to me.
Its stupid to think that all internal combustion engines will go away - planes, trucks, and all cars will be eliminated? Care to take a bike any time you want to move your furnature cross-country or to visit friends? Row to Europe or Tibet for a vacation? Wait 4 weeks for a package from Amazon shipping? Not likely. It's also just as stupid to keep going with our foreign oil dependency. However, the truth is much of our tax base that pays for transportation is based on the fees that autos, trucks, and airplanes pay - something big will change if those dollars go away.

Better/worse - no idea - we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Just chill the heck out.

But yeah - fix the friggen cesspool river, dump the stupid bums that keep taking the money we pay them and not even fix pipes or basic services. A fire hydrant outside my house got hit 3 YEARS ago, it's been marked by the city, and it's still not fixed. Or how about actually giving us the tri-met services we've been paying for. Or how about figuring out why our schools are in the the top 10 of funding per student, but in the bottom 10% of performance.

@ D
This "illiterate stoner" probably paid more income taxes last year than YOU make in 5 years net profit, you jackass. You consider yourself the "diminishing tax base"? I bet you live with your mom. Die.

@BokChoy

Hey, why care about that when we're living in such an amazing, sustainably-local, organically-diverse, progressive-minded utopia and we've escaped the utterly hellish, conservative "southern dumps run by inbred, hateful, illiterate rednecks" surrounded by people who just don't think like us. I mean, it would have been WAY too hard to just stay there and try to change things, and those fucking yokels would never, ever understand anything creative like knitting circles, biking, making "music," or things like the farm to table ethic. It's so much better here where everyone, well, the people in my insulated little bubble I mean, but everyone is so like us.

Re: “Take Your City and Shove It!

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.

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."

Re: “Take Your City and Shove It!

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!!

Re: “Take Your City and Shove It!

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.

Re: “Take Your City and Shove It!

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
