As the "homeless" or more accurately "beggars" are approximately one percent or less of the city population they can just go fuck off. A democracy is rule of the majority. having failure dictate the actions of the capable is the worst possible solution. last time I checked the majority does not want to be hassled by lying, stealing, begging fuckers. Unless they have been duly elected first.
Aren't PDX's homeless getting a nice new 'hotel' very close to this location? Can't they rest there? To even think of questioning this proposal is asinine. No wonder businesses shy away from Portland.Let just a little common sense prevail for once.
What jake said.
This is just one of those ridiculous Portlandia stories.
First off, his last name is Nader, not Nadar.
Second off, Nader didn't "throw" Bush into office. If you re-examined your history, you'd know that Gore had actually WON that 2000 election. But it was the Supreme court who ultimately "threw" Bush into office.
Fantastic article. But you are too kind.
The shrieking shrew and shrill of seat belt lady is enough to make an alcoholic take up the smack.
That woman is so full of herself and completely delusional, not mention drunk with power, she makes Donald Trump seem like the Dalai Lama.
I have to imagine she learned her craft from visiting North Korea and observing their re-education camps.
If Seat Belt Shrew had her way, there would be a law requiring you to don a helmet before getting out of bed. And her type would demand cameras everywhere to ensure compliance. The founding fathers roll in their respective graves.
Resistance is Victory!
Really sad to see Naomi's go. We love that store and the location. What will become of all their awesome animals?
Really sad to see Naomi's go. We love that store and location.
"How was your day honey?" "Good, we made arsenic a childhood food, we were wondering, is your baby too loud? the mums will love it. Good night" zzzzzzzz HOW DO YOU LIVE LIKE THAT...

Jake, you nailed it.
Damosa, the irony of your idealism is that unless one of those parties can actually be a contender you essentially throw away your influence.
I guess you are aware of that after the Nadar fiasco threw Bush into office instead of Gore...Gore had to pander to the far left because of him. Just one example. And you can believe I gave my Nadar friends a bunch of crap for it.
While in Germany I came to realize that minor parties have more influence over their system as they form coalitions and such.
A more socialistic system is, as played out, more democratic than ours.
Oh, i have hardly better aspects for the Dems, either. Useless mostly, the whole lot of 'em. Infact, i voted mostly Independent, Pacific Green Party, and Working Families Party down the line in the last state election.
I'm just saying that the Republicans are absolutely beyond the pale. Fuck them!
Not sure what the problem is they signed a contract that clearly stated the terms whats the argument for them staying again?
I agree that everything coming down to one vote is a terrible idea but can you honestly say democrats in the same position wouldn't do the same thing. In general across the board politicians have been letting me down for over a decade now If america really wants to create a change boycott voting completely. If you honestly don't have a candidate you like don't vote just because he is on your team
Buyer's Remorse? Mad as hell at your lawmaker(s)? Oregon Has recall Options.
Yes! Hot Ladies! Hot Rubber! There is a strip club, Blush to the north on 99E, the Acropolis just to the south, another proposed strip club Casa Diablo next to them, and Les Schwab Tires proposed right in the middle of three strip clubs and that's all fine. We'd love to keep our garden and livestock supplies tucked behind the tires. There are no strippers in sight, but there are chicks!! And lots of plants, vegetables, fruit trees, flowers, ducks, chickens and goats.
All part of what makes the Portland metro area unique, right?
We are PRO Les Schwab Tire Center and Naomi's Organic Farm Supply.
The lease to Naomi's was short term initially, because Les Schwab has been trying to buy the neighboring acre property for their new tire center and said they did not know what the city would require for development. The plans on record at Portland's BDS, publicly available, show that all of what Les Schwab would like to build and the parking spaces they are allotted fit on that neighboring acre on 99E / McLoughlin Blvd.
There are no plans for development on the land Naomi's is on to the west facing residential houses, other than Les Schwab asking for 2 1/2 times the parking they are allowed, which, if approved by the city and neighborhood, still works.
The farm and garden shop could stay right where it is and accommodate those additional 30 parking spaces if needed, as the two properties total 2 acres.
It would be really cool to see both there and the neatest place to wait to have your tires fixed. As customers of both companies and neighbors, there aren't many sites unpaved and zoned like this one which has been a garden nursery for many decades. While we know Naomi's can move elsewhere, we hope Les Schwab will make a decision that reflects the outpouring from their customers and the group of neighborhoods they're moving into, including Sellwood, East and West Moreland, Ardenwald-Johnson Creek, along with Oak Grove and the City of Milwaukie.
Les Schwab has written us that Naomi's is great and exactly the tenant they'd want back, after they develop. As there are no plans to develop that land, we're just asking Naomi's be able to simply stay and keep growing.
Friends of Naomi's Organic Farm Supply
These Republican scumbags are going to do EVERYTHING in their power to stiffle and totally wreck any piece of truely progressive legislation that's proposed. Years from now when you see that hardly anything in the state has improved, THEN these neo-con rat-bastards will yell, "SEE! GOVT. IS USELESS!" This is their plan.
So, lemme see if I have this straight. Cute backyard farm shop opens on land owned by Les Schwab. The lease is temporary, a fact understood by all parties from the beginning. Once Schwab decides to develop the space and asks urban farm emporium to vacate, urban backyard yokels throughout SE Portland raise pitchforks to protest the evil corporate ways of Les Schwab. Meanwhile, owner of hobbyist farm store, apparently unaware that the sun does indeed shine on trees growing outside that particular property, a property conveniently located near the Acropolis, expresses her passion for staying on said land they had originally agreed to lease temporarily. The mean ol' blackhearts at Les Schwab now expected, in the face of dirty yuppie/hippie pressure, to change their minds about the whole thing.
Just doesn't get any better than this.
I wonder no longer.
and we are suprised by this why?
