Re: “Read City Hall's Pitch to Food Cart Owners!

Maybe it is a issue worth covering because the Oregonian isn't doing it?

Re: “UPDATED: Can City Hall Protesters Just Come Back Every Night at 9? (Yes, They Can)

I am actually rather worried that some hard right-wing types might not go down there and "take the law" into their own hands from some of the comments I have seen around the web recently.

Re: “Portland as Fuck

Depends on how much money you make you could probably qualify some-type of government funded (OHP) or subsidized health care plan in 2014, just saying...

Re: “Hall Monitor

Well that is certainly some good news!

(Hopefully, they will stick to their guns.)

Re: “Another Dispiriting Portland Budget Chart

Most of the budget deficit is from costs that should have been covered with over sources of taxes but weren't so Hales plan is just to cut until a bottom line is reached.

Neither the police plan or the library costs really should be coming from the general fund. Sam Adams was going to equalize taxation of cable companies to pay for the police reforms (unavoidable, and needed to happen) and supporting libraries are good but you can't pay for them by shutting down fire stations and homeless shelters.

Ultimately, the issue is that the city needs more revenue of some form and Sam Adams was taking out of the cushion not to push cuts in the middle of a recession. (probably, the smart thing to do) However, Hales is a conservative and rather than figure out the tax situation, he is just going to cut basic services.

Ultimately, I think Portland is lurching to the right again and while there is wealth in this city, it certainly is going to be a ugly couple of years.
