All the commentators from far-flung cities or countries claiming to know about PDX can just f*** off and die. Really. Patriot Pride and Antifa are sideshow acts and entirely incidental to the lives of real Portlanders. They are, however, poster-children for the dopes enthralled by the far-right news media. I'm sure will get the neo-con tour bus here soon enough to admire the lunatic fauna. We'll have to get actors or animatronic Antifa protesters to keep them entertained -- just like the mechanical hippos at the Disney jungle tour. The tourists can yell "commie" of "faggot" from the trolley.. https://www.dreamstime.com/editorial...-image55204553 We can make a few bucks off the rubes. We need idiots to buy the bad beer and fast food.

Meanwhile, in the DPR PDX, I got a really nice seat-pack for $5 today. Bike Gallery is holding daily sales leading up to Christmas -- $1 tubes a few days back, less than TK pays for bell peppers in Oakland. $2 bar tape, etc., etc. Sweet! And it was dry and unseasonably warm. https://www.thorindustries.com/wp-co...on-Feature.jpg Skiing tomorrow at Mt. Hood Meadows!
https://www.skihood.com/-/media/skih...200b.jpg?la=en It's a total party of beautiful white people up here. The neo-cons should love us!

I wonder what "rural people" means today? City folk who bought a house
outside the city limits and commute to work in the city? Or folks who
live outside the city limits and raise their own food :-?

If the former one can only sympathize with the long commute. If the
latter one can discuss the effects of global warming on the string
beans.

As for the Mexicans keep out sign... well, just keeping up with good
old U.S. traditions. Ever heard the song, "We want no Irish here"?

cheers,

A couple of years ago, CNN made that Der Spiegel "reporter", known to the rest of us as "Crooked Cornelius", their Reporter of the Year. Typical. It's not as if everyone who is in the business didn't know about him for years, it is that, like with lawyers, it is now considered unprofessional to expose the crooks from your own profession, even for "investigative" journalists. That never applied to journalism in the days when reporters reported the facts and let the conclusions fall where they fell. But, of course, back then they knew the difference between facts and lies, which is a pre-requisite for ethical behaviour.

Seems you have a hard time deciding if you appreciate tourism from far-flung
places, or not.

Meanwhile, in the DPR PDX, I got a really nice seat-pack for $5 today.. Bike Gallery is holding daily sales leading up to Christmas -- $1 tubes a few days back, less than TK pays for bell peppers in Oakland. $2 bar tape, etc., etc. Sweet!


How appalling! Proposing that Oaklanders should eat tubes instead of
peppers is sooo Marie-Antoinette!

The good thing about Luis Enrique Martinez is that he is one of the few people I have seen who got prosecuted for driving while talking on a cell phone. The last set of charges arose out of another Antifa dope-parade in June 2018.

But wait! He used to be the more Anglo Louis Erich Marquez and has a conviction under that name, too. The civil docket indicates he's been evicted a bunch of times and is a small-time looser. Do I hate ass-wipes like that? You bet. I also don't want Patriot Prayer coming to our City just to draw-out the Luis/Louis Marquezs of the world. Without the cameras and coverage, useless gnats like him would be headed to sunny California.

And if I were that cyclist, well, I would have gone a block over and called it good. I'm frequently dodging parades, demonstration, marathons and other events downtown. It's a grid. You go a block over. The only other option is to ride through the protesters full speed or go in punching -- which I might have done before I was sentenced to blood thinners after a couple PEs from a a ski fracture. But not because of politics -- it's something much deeper. Don't block the road! I don't care if you're Fascists, Buddhist monks or the PTA. Get the F*** out of the way!

Yes, what I would like is local government keeping roadways and pedestrian facilities clear. But we're trapped in a First Amendment learning experience, and no matter what, the PPB always takes it in the shorts -- they were too hard, too soft, too many, too few, too many horses, not enough horses, etc., etc. Woe unto them.

Don't do anything rash, Duane. Believe me, I know everything about being a stateless, passportless refugee. If the Canadians accuse you of an armed invasion by bicycle, say nothing until your attorney (which Michael? -- Cohen or Avenatti?) arrives. When Tom Hanks exchanges you on a bridge (we're still working on which one) for a Canadian milkman caught taking lewd photographs of the White House, Mr Trump will personally pin the National Medal of Merit on you.
