Why are you guys making excuses for this person? See, this is why I don't run with bipolar lunatics- Every last one of 'em is a stupid dipshit schemin' to take my money. Fuck that, this bitch can pay my arts tax.
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?
@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?
@Hank, you mean besides a diagnosis of bipolar and some evidence that she slips between realities pretty readily, not to mention problems holding down a stable "normal" job? This person really clearly needs help, and her existence is not simply a symptom of some lax or overworked state agencies, but also of a systemic problem with both treatment and recognition of mental illness in the state of Oregon.
@The Showstopper - Why, exactly, does it transpire that Gangstabitch Catalya needs mental help? It sounds like she has her shit together pretty well, mentally, though she perhaps lives by a different moral code than that to which you are accustomed.
Wow, this has to be the most ignorant person written about in this paper since The Great Sunnyside Window Massacre of October 2008
Good piece, but not surprising to me. It is shockingly easy to trick the state, or buy fake greed cards, ID's, DHS cards etc. This person should be receiving mental help, not that it would prevent this but there are clear issues
"Lewis, it would transpire, had stolen the card."
YUCK EDIT THAT SHIT SON
i wish the world government would drop a chemical from the stratosphere that would sterilize a generation of the population. this would ease so much strife and pollution. eventually we could get back to makin' bacon but why not take a break for awhile?
Interesting article Erik. Thanks for posting! I'm excited for the genre to expand. It's been a life-long favorite, so it's encouraging that we may get -good- movies out of the genre in the next few years.
I also think that while WoW is losing users (1.5m user drop in 2012), those folk are seeking out other fantasy products to scratch that itch. I've ran into a lot of former WoW players in the last 2 years that are relentlessly pursuing gaming, writing and other properties in the Fantasy genre.
Narcissism is so awesome.
@Spindles - not condoning sign-stealing, but your side is into arson - check the KATU link you posted.
Oh look, an OHSU doctor was just caught red-handed stealing signs outside the headquarters of Clean Water Portland. The good doctor also works for the Oregon Health Authority, the state agency that was deliberately delaying the results of the new Oregon Smile Survey.
Adding Fluorosilicic Acid to our public water supply does nothing to address the many deep, systemic issues that have created uneven medical access and nutritional access/education/habits among poor communities. As long as the cheapest and most accessible food is processed, sugary, and nutrient deficient, and as long as our healthcare system is controlled by for-profit interests, health problems like dental caries in poor (mostly minority) communities will continue to manifest, no matter how many additional chemicals we put in the water or air.
I'm reminded of when I used to teach in high schools and saw kids show up daily with nothing but Twizzlers or other candy in their backpacks for breakfast. This is a problem fluoridation CAN'T solve.
What fluoridation DOES do, however, is increase the daily chemical load on our bodies and our ecosystem, proposing a new substance to consume and inject into our biosphere over the long term. Portland's water already has three "sanitizing" agents in it. Is making it even more of a chemical soup really the wise thing to do in this day and age? With a planet and populace already ailing from the widespread and indiscriminate use of chemical agents, we might finally begin to question the wisdom of the "better living through chemistry" panacea, and we can instead begin to consider more sustainable, deeply curative approaches to fundamentally social issues of this type.
Water and air are basic to life, free and necessary to all. Is this not reason enough to protect their purity, and to find more acute solutions to acute problems such as the one fluoridation proposes to "solve?"
There is a worldwide movement to stop forced Fluoridation of public water systems. It is successful in many communities.
My hope is that Fluoridation of public water systems will soon be a thing of the past!
Our water WILL NOT BE POISONED with toxic industrial waste, which is exactly what Fluorosilicic Acid is. Our water will not be contaminated. Get out of our water system with your drugs and industrial waste. Make your money elsewhere.
There are very likely grounds for a lawsuit if this measure passes, according to the Oregon State Bar.

Jesus get a room you two! Also after having a bad day I want to thank the person who was upset at the Mercury for "publishing under the guise of journalism". Holy fuck I needed that laugh. Also whoever pointed up that this publication's strength was witless hipster self promotion was also correct and should win something along with the 500th commenter! Oh, and I am voting no in part due to the ethics of how this is being done, and concerns in terms of overall public health. But I encourage the trolling, my this is exciting. Oh, and Mercury, you blow and...eh whatever been said already and I am still stunned there are people shocked at this,lol
