If Drazan wins, don't act surprised

This writer seems to have the situation in Oregon pretty well sussed out:

“I've never experienced anything like this,” said Donewald, who, with Olson, created a neighborhood security committee. “There’s been a failure of leadership.”...

“The biggest thing to me, though—the most off-putting thing, is open defecation,” she said. “I’m walking down the street with my kids going to a bookstore, and someone is squatted on the sidewalk taking a shit.”

“My kids, there are times they want to go to Portland and check out shops,” Diana Sapera told me. “Now, I don’t feel comfortable doing that. My kids are scared, seeing grown adults yelling, hitting things, throwing things. They see needles and are like, ‘What is that?’”

 The whole thing can be read here. But cover your hair first, lest you tear it out.


  1. We’re trying as hard as we can to lose, without trump to unite us we’re an infighting shit show

    1. The Oregon GOP is completely inept. I won't be at all surprised if they blow this golden opportunity. Whatever – they'll never get my vote for anything, ever. The country will be much better off if the party that brought us Trump and McConnell vanishes, and the sooner the better.

  2. It saddens me to see the Oregon GOP wandering around without a backbone.

  3. I dislike Kotek & I doubt there’ll be any good choices to vote ‘for’ now or anytime soon, but I’d choose that over mayor of (un) Happy Valley, which is basically People who want the LO separated schools and McMansion & Clack. Co. tax dodge, but fundamentally have a Gresham address that’s an anti-city on the edge of Gresham & 82nd ave springwater trail crime no-man’s-land and someone who basically will probably just end voting (even if our ‘democracy’ is a bad joke (on us) & sham anyway?)

  4. That article includes a bunch of old photos from protests that went on in connection with the George Floyd murder. Remember him? It serious refers to "Antifa violence" and somehow manages to avoid mentioning anything about the Proud Boys and their allies within the Portland Police Bureau. Puh-lease.
