Re: “Zoning Change Approved for Giant Propane Tank in N. Portland

This seems a bit reactionary or maybe these people lack the acumen to distinguish between crude/LNG exports and LPG exports.

China and other asian nations are trying to reduce reliance on coal in residential heating/cooking, industrial, and transport. It's also used to increase the heating potential of LNG that they get from other places. Asia replacing coal with liquid hydrocarbon gasses has a net benefit if it displaces coal.

These countries are going to use fossil fuels for the foreseeable future and LPG/LNG is less damaging to the environment than coal by a very large margin, including greenhouse emissions.

I was opposed to the large scale LNG terminals because they are huge and present little benefit to the state - also LNG is a resource we can use domestically.

This terminal is small by comparative standards and uses rail infrastructure already in place. It's more ships making PDX port of call and another company paying taxes in the city. Propane is highly benign compared to the bitumen rail cars we already deal with. I don't really see what the downside here is - we already store far nastier liquid products in the tank farms down there. I mean it's sort of whatever really.

Re: “Word Is Bond

My god, an adult take on an issue that factors in that whole complicated finance thing!

I get the feeling most Portlanders think this shouldn't matter - I mean we're all so nice and friendly, why can't we just get the money from the money people and do like a bunch of sustainable stuff!? I mean it rains a lot right!?

For any municipality, our cost of capital is massively important. As a tax payer, it's literally how much you're going to pay investors back for your city. And you will pay.

Re: “Dear Nike, Go Fuck Yourselves (Collectively)

Those bastards with their careers and their money and their company that alongside Intel and Daimler basically keeps this city from sliding into a pool of it's own excrement and turning into a meth addled hipster Detroit! Bastards! How dare they talk about business and common interests while they're in their asshole suits and not in some way interact with the staff and other customers.... totally unlike almost all other customers!

They should show deference and ultimate penance when interacting with the highest of beings, the underemployed Portland server! They're writing a novel! They're too busy to go to school! They would totally suck it up and get a 9-5 and start earning a 401k and building a resume but that would totally destroy their soul.... man! So fuck you with your clothes! And your car! Give them your money already you entitled bastards! RABBLERABBLERABBLE.

Re: “I Am so Fucking Sick of Homeless Advocates

Thats because they usually are James.

The vast majority of homeless I encounter in Portland appear to be mentally ill or heavily intoxicated, or both. I don't doubt there are sober, employable people out there homeless, but they sure aren't the ones staggering around chinatown when I'm down there.

Someone give me a job! I didn't work very hard in school and I don't work very hard in general, and my peers are generally more put together and professional than me, and can bottle up their bullshit ironic attitudes for 8 hours 5 days a week, but I cant. But seriously, will you give me a job anyway? Weed is expensive and the rents going up in my shitty neighborhood because people with a modicum of focus on their career are moving in.

I have a degree. I know it's in anthropology but I really think I'm the right fit to be your business analyst, because I need money! Are you gonna hire some suit wearing douchebag?! I have two tatoos relating to eastern religion! TWO! And im not a douchebag! PLEASEEE?!??!
