commented on In Case You Forgot What Snow in Portland Looks Like...
I watched that first video as it occurred, live from my apartment windows. The snow wasn't the problem, it was the layer of ice underneath it, and the drivers with four wheel drive vehicles in the West hills who thought they were invincible. Nothing stopped them! Until the city parked a fire truck at the top of the hill, which multiple cars proceeded to run into. Trimet is the best solution to most people's transportation problems in a winter storm. Or just stay home and have fun! Be safe folks!
commented on The “Liberal Bubble” Is a Ridiculous Myth
As someone who grew up in a rural area that once had a thriving mill economy, but now lives in a city for the sole purpose of obtaining employment I know the liberal bubble to be a real thing. Not all cities are liberal bubbles, however. Some cities host a variety of political ideas. But Portland certainly is.

commented on Oregonians: Cats are fine; PEOPLE need you
You know who has the ability to make their lives (even marginally) better? People. You know what often gets put to death due to over population? Cats. Give to whatever charity you please, but don't disparage those who choose to give to a group that supports a different noun than yourself.
