That won't work; in Portland, we spend more on water bills than on gasoline.
"Putting people back to work!"

For diaper companies, there must be, since they buy a lot of ad airtime. For us, dealing with government, not so much.

Yes, that's a perfect application of the meme. As long as somebody else is paying, it's "fair".
I think it goes, "Shut up, or I'm going to have you arrested." Just another step down the road to tyranny.

So is too much water.

I'm going to guess she'd claim it's just a matter of "cultural differences", since they seem to trot that out pretty often. There was a case not too long ago here, wherein a 26 year-old illegal from Mexico raped a 13 year-old, and that's exactly the excuse that the Mexican Consul here trotted out.

Well, their suit against USDA got tossed, which meant they had to pay their own legal expenses on that one, so I reckon they're hoping to recoup that cash by suing USCG for "damages". Brilliant.
And according to him, zero carbon emissions! Hmm. I wonder how they get the "skiffs" back up to the top, and what powers the water pumps, and where the water comes from in the first place....
It's been that way for a while; it's just not improving any.

Oh no, if it falls and damages an adjoining property, you can bet he'll be held liable. After all, it's his tree, then.

Yes - I got our Kasich mailer today; the same day he dropped out of the race.

Well, Trump's definitely an outsider. Just not a conservative.

With somebody else's money.

Very much what I was thinking, ZZ - in this country, the guy would likely have died, not from heart/lung failure, but by drowning. In DoD red tape.

Somehow it seems pretty unlikely that your basic terrorist is going to create a WiFi hotspot, let alone with a name like that.

Hey, when our last one-term mayor was in office, the city council decreed that office supplies would be delivered to Portland City Haul by cargo trike....

I believe this bunch would do just that if they could. Because government knows best.
Cats and dogs peeing together - complete anarchy!

No kidding. Those anarchists in Seattle should fire up a bowl and chill out, since pot's legal there now.

Well, thanks for stopping by again. I always appreciate your insights, especially on things Tri-Met. Ir's amusing that Streetcar's Eastmoreland neighborhood doesn't want increased density - even though Tri-Met has that spiffy new light rail line with a station right there. Funny how that works.
I think a large part of the problem here is that we have a pretty significant population churn; that means that a lot of people have no sense of Portland history, and so they just buy the lies.
Well, as I noted, I worship the ground that awaits her.

Who needs history and character when you can build bunkers?

I'm just trying to keep up with the idiocy, Al. Nice to see you again, though!
