I would gladly pay additional tax dollars for measures that would genuinely help homeless people, but the requests from homeless advocates in this situation are a joke.
[warning, sarcasm ahead]
Having dedicated tables for non-paying, presumably homeless folks on this block will immediately solve the homelessness problem in Portland. I'm also sure that enjoying a seat at one of the requested tables would address the individual needs of each homeless person who sits at one of them.
While we're at it, homeless people should also get their own ride at the Rose Festival when the public space of the riverfront blocks are closed for that event. And their own beer tent at the beer festival on the same public property.
[back to being serious]
Homelessness is a serious problem/issue that calls for serious solutions. Worrying about a dumb table or two on one small block of downtown is ridiculous and does nothing to address the underlying issues that need to be addressed.
Complete, unadulterated (but locally sourced!) idiots.
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!!
This show was a ponderous, pretentious waste of a lot of hard earned money.
On Saturday night, people left the upper seating area early and the remainder could no longer contain their laughter by the last monologue. We applauded obligingly but begrudgingly.
Complete. Fucking. Joke.
Re Matt Davis' comments on the circumstances if this were a man/woman (girl) or Republican . . . dead on. Talk about hypocrisy.
His apologists would be singing a completely different tune under either circumstance.
Forgetting the fact that his official actions may have been compromised by the underlying lie?
Ribbon cutting at the condo
Hiring of an inexperienced reporter who had some goods
Among others, the problem of maintaining the cover-up -- and the leverage it gives anyone who may know about it -- is the most important reason we should care about the lie.
