Re: “Casa Diablo Gets Liquor License For New Location

If the OLCC does not grant a license to an establishment, they are unable to sell liquor to it. OLCC is in the business of selling booze to make money to continue to justify their existence. Of course they approved this license (and just about every other). If Oregonians want a true liquor enforcement agency, it must be decoupled from the agency responsible for selling liquor.

Re: “Teabaggy New Jersey Governor Thinks Civil Rights Should've Been a Referendum

I always enjoy when I see Mayor Booker critiquing Christie. For the start of the history, consider watching Street Fight, one of the better political documentaries of the past couple decades.

Re: “Police Union President: Not Automatically Arresting Protesters Goes "Against the Very Grain" of Cops' Training

Turner's comments feel disingenuous at best. Police are trained to use the minimum amount of force needed to achieve compliance. Every hour of everyday, the police make decisions on whether to enforce laws or not. Ever got pulled over for a traffic violation yet not received a ticket? This is no different.

Re: “What About a mini-DREAM Act for Oregon?

A great idea. One that has unfortunately been introduced in at least the last three regular sessions, if not four, and failed to pass.

Only 10 minutes to downtown Portland!

Re: “Firefighters Are Healthcare Workers

I went on a "ride along" with Portland Fire and Rescue a few months ago and at first it struck me that maybe it didn't make sense for a fire crew to show up at every medical emergency. AMR is showing up also. But I spent time thinking about it.... a little bit was all it took.

We're not paying for expensive equipment for medical calls. All we are paying for is the mileage. The equipment exists and is sitting in firehouses all over Portland.

Unless there is any evidence that firefighters respond to fires slower as a result of medical calls let's pay for the mileage to keep our firefighters visible in the public helping Portlanders. It's not too expensive and oh, by the way, it's a visible reminder of how Portland's tax dollars are working for them.

Re: “Good Morning, News!

Should I be crying? Maybe I'm still in shock....
