NEW to PDX, anyone want to show me around?
Medicaid (Oregon Health Plan) exists to provide free medical coverage for every Oregon child whose family's income is under 201% of the federal poverty level. With this program you can visit a dentist and get fluoride treatments all you want without it costing you anything more than signing up for the program for your children.
All poor children in Oregon already have the option to get this treatment if they want it. The money spent on this campaign and that would have been spent on fluoridating the water should instead be spent on educating those with the OHP benefits that these options are still available for their children IF THEY CHOOSE TO USE THEM. Don't forget choice, people.
Damn you Blabby, beat me to it again. Sad Panda (idk what the fuck that means but it is on the internet and stuff)
Hey, I tried to help the dude out you know! Lets hope it goes well.
Let it die already Mercury, you really do not look funny or clever beating a dead horse. Surely you at least have other things to cover Denis?
Apizza Scholls sucks! Just because it's hard to get doesn't mean it's better. A hipster walks into a bar full of hipsters and says: 'This bar sucks, it's full of hipsters!"
Go to Hogan's Goat or Sizzle Pie. Boycott Scholls! F that place.
Ian, I love you too, but were you high when you wrote this:
"even someone's dad folding a pile of Lee Dungarees before church"?
Huh? Also, how high were you?
I do not disagree with you anon, but a balance is good. Now I am out before you get severely flamed :(
I agree with you anon, but I also think customers should have some respect for staff as well
Proud to be stupid. But hey, now we can talk more about how Portland is different from other places, and isn't that what really matters?
Hank, do you feel that to be normal behavior? Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of either, a large percentage of out population deal with various conditions (likely myself included)
Bold moves...but like the investigator said: Everyone gets caught eventually. And with getting caught is paying back every dollar that was given to her erroneously. I don't think we should make getting benefits more difficult for everyone because of the incredibly small percentage of fraudsters like this woman.
Also, who let this woman borrow her baby?
Go back to Reddit, you science elitist!
"a trilogy whose thesis is that there are zero consequences when privileged white men make horrible decisions on cocaine."
Oh shit, Elinor. That's a perfect breakdown!
Ummm "BEYOND closing time." Like beyond it. Past the time of closing. The expiration of their close, in time.
You idiot I,A.. when someone wants to go home after the bar is legally fucking closed.. GET> THE> FUCK> OUT!
Yay, we kept public health on the back burner for a fourth time! Let's show off how much we hate public health and budget efficiency by flaunting the power of our collective willful ignorance at city hall, where the council tried to do the right thing for us all without our permission! Let this be a lesson to our elected officials - we don't actually want them to make decisions for our city!
But it's still shitty to walk into a place 10 minutes before it closes and start up a game of scrabble.
@phizzi - Where are you getting she is bipolar? The same court records that have kept a serial identify thief out of jail? Or are you the type of liberal that has an excuse ready for everyone that fucks their own life up?
People celebrating an election victory. Very unusual. Almost unheard of. Must be (how did your Twitter tease for this post put it?) a "gloat train choo-choo[ing] on."
Man, were people ever taking this really REALLY seriously. I can't wait to hear the broader campaign roll out to get fluoride out of every other city's water supply.
Because surely if you believe that most of the country is being poisoned by their water, and our environment is being laced with deadly chemicals you would have to carry on and do something about it.
Surely, this wasn't just a parochial tantrum thrown by the usual Keep-Portland-Weirdos who can't see past 82nd Avenue, right? So what's the broader plan, brave eco-warriors?
Oh, it's to head to City Hall to make hats out of tinfoil and prance around gloating for a few minutes before you are rained out. And that is what is called "solving a serious problem" in Portland.
