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.
PDX2000 - if the SEC investigates a municipal government?! LOL WUT?!
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.
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?!??!
No bars or sporting events huh? Probably no dangerous sports or loud music? Damn babe, you sound like a blast, let me spend the rest of my life with you! See you on the couch! Or the grocery store! Let's live it all, together! Scrubs! Woooo!
Randy - Lumpenproletariat lounging in a chair blocking a city street, looking for a fight, breaking out in tears when they lose their spot, in contradiction to the majority's wishes are never going to sympathize. Self police or be policed and let the intelligent pragmatic clear minded folks, the ones the "99%" can actually identify with, carry on.
