(OLD SUMMER=FALL PAINTING OF EUGENE OREGON BOUGHT FROM ARTIST HERE)
It is summer—I think.is it summer?what happened to summer in Eugene Oregon? I look out the window, for at least a week it is raining, cold, overcast skies,anD NO SUN, NO SUN, NO SUN!! NO LIGHT AT ALL! NO WONDER my back is killing me, cause it is cold,and the worst is, it is dark and no light outside.
OOPS, it is 2:27 AM. OK, it is dark summer and also early in the morning. Early in the morning in Oregon is the best time of day, the squirrels are all out early, and wave to you, thru the window(no they actually hate out guts, we kill them with cars_)so my cat likes to watch them thru the window, and drools a lot.
(Suspended until we watch Trump talk to the head of north Korea, and messy Canada;and they Trump, wants north Korea in the UN or the united country bunch.
“Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.”
Meanwhile, how is Lane county and Eugene going to HAve a real summer???HOW???MOVE THE WHOLE STATE TO CALIFORNIA?? OH YEAH. GIVE CALIFORNIA ALL OUR WATER? NOT a good idea. _Carolyn had come over, unable to sleep, and came over to sip coffee and try the weather channel trying to find if we could have ANY SUMMER IN OREGON??wE decided to ask some of the new comers who had come to Oregon for “mild weather.”
One of them we knew was online, at this time, trying to get meteorologists to cough up a prediction for July and the Fall.”We used to have Indian Summers here,”I typed,”and it meant hot, warm, beautiful Falls and Summer right into the beginning of cool weather.” My friend had heard of that;”but what happened?I also was told about Oregon, that it had had hot summers too.” “Yes,” I typed, “it used to. We relied on them, we had so much water and rain from the winter and the spring was also wet.April was wet,and even in May we had rain and hail. Ouch.But this year, we had lots of sun in May, and then—“
“We hit June,” I typed, “and all the summer LEFT OREGON. EUGENE became dark,wet,cold,and no sun no sunlight NO SUN AT ALL.”It looked like Alaska,and everyone started taking more Vitamin D with fish oil.I have to go look at Portland City,and other areas of Oregon, and report back.How is the coast?How are the other areas of Oregon?”I decided to sign off the chat room with Oregonians,and try to find this out.
But the days went by,and little by little, the spring and summer creeeped in.Just like the damn ivy I had to go out and kill,climbing up my trees killing them. We still kept having overcast days, and the meteorologist answered my email very nicely and gave me the information the athe had.\
Summer was coming but it was coMing in slow, and Carolyn said,:”It is supposed to start getting hot in July,and then the months after ward it gets hot.”But what was going to happen now,was we were always going to have OVERCAST SKIESL AND SMOG,AND FOG,AND DIRTY ALLERGIC AIR IN SUMERS IN LANE COUNTY IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY. NO SUN SHINE ALL THE TIME,EVEN IF IT WAS WARM.
YES, older peoplle know that this valley used to be great for gardening,and that is over, because of the weather change over the years.No longer tons of rain,and then very hot hot sunny summers.Now we have overcast skies a lot of the year,a lot less rain, and during the June and July we had no sunshine, so gardens were no longer easy and great to raise.
HOW are you supposed to grow food, when there is NOT SUN ALL SUMMER AND SPRING??tHE answer, is, go grow them somewhere else.Oregon was never easy to grow gardens in,and now it is even harder.It used to always have snow into May and hail,and ruin everything in the middle of growing season.I know that myself.You have to be an excellent overly skilled miracle worker now to grow stuff here WITHOUT ANY Sunsh8ine shining on your garden!!
Yes, if you come here to grow gardens you will have to get green houses and grow lights.I know that,and so do all the other gardeners who live here.I drive by sometimes and see greenhouses and imitations of green houses,in the backs of people’s homes cause they need to protect their gardens from this weather, and even give the garden light which is electric.
Welcome to the new Lane county and Willamette Valley gardening. get your own grow lights and put up a green house,and even try growing mushrooms instead cause they grow well in basements cause there is no sun and it’s damp. Weeds and grass,and lots of blackberry bushes grow well,without any berries,so the BAD PLANTS all grow very well now. NOTHING ELSE. tRY GROWING GRASS SEED.the farmers do that here,and they used to burn the fields all summer long, smoking and gassing all the air, and giving everyone sinus infections colds and flu,and bronchitis.
So that is it; you wanna garden, go to CAlifornia,and use up all their water there.At least they have the fucking sunshine to do it.

IT NO LONGER FUNCTIONS, BILL GATES KISS YOUR HOME USERS GOOD BYE!!(SIGN OFF)OK, we have this problem; it is not fixable, let’s go to the WEATHER AND HOW THE WEATHER IS SCREWED-=-NEXT POST.–(Sandraminadotty in ORegon
“SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!”
I have to confess a horrible fault in my personality as an older person; I do not want a cell phone,I have not the extra money and I do not want the complications that go with it.This desktop problem is enough;Windows destroying PC quality; browsers becoming shit; and every single complex problem with a damn browser that should be simple cause browsers are NOT IMPORTANT IN ANY ONE’S LIFE.
Computers and software are supposed to be the INSTRUMENT, and not the entire subject of all our lives except for Techies who like that.Instead,most of us,and we seniors included, are raked over the coals as if browsers were God Almighty and not a stupid instrument of computer communication.
It is the new power hustle of importance; in order for computer tech to take over our lives,and make sure we all know it is the THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THERE IS, it destroys our time and lives by making sure all the software stinks and does not function,–thus making all these wonderful asshole computer and software companies so damn important when they are NOT. YES, IN REALITY THEY ARE NOT.
They are NOT THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE.Do you really want a bunch of snot nosed kids with computer chips for brains, to tell you you have to do computer stuff perfectly, for even a Goddamn browser or email to work?–so you can carry on the simple things of life?
Well, I am a senior and I know there are other more important things in life than computer-Goddamned-tech.These young idiots do not know that yet. They are missing the great stuff in life, trying to get to be the Kings of technology, cause that is the only pathetic way they can be SOMEBODY to anyone. .They refuse to make stuff simple and have it work right, cause that would be too Goddamned easy for us. We have to be told, “We are the techies and you have to pay all attention and masses of money to us!!”
Just a simple thing like your Yahoo email acct. has now have to be screwed with, cause Yahoo once again tries to tell you how important and powerful they are. They cannot even let you have your own years long email, cause they have to fuck it up for you. In reality, PEOPLE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN COMPUTERS AND TECH.AND that is what all these creamed website giants,and massive bunches of Neanderthal guys are trying to break your arm for; their importance in the world.
Now, my old email with Yahoo is no longer available, cause they are determinidly screwing with it,and I can no longer log in,as many other users of Yahoo email are screaming all over the help pages.”How come my old yahoo acct. will not longer work or let me in??”–Because Yahoo and their little stupid company pals, just cannot leave good enough alone,and have to push you around AGAIN.
NOW I have to borrow someone else’s mobile phone no. just to get a new Yahoo acct. for email.Have you noticed all the “Privacy update and privacy new pledges and shit?”–Sure, that’s it.Now I have to cancel(which it is not letting me do_)all the companies that ever use my old Yahoo acct. to verify who and where I am. It is gone.
But since Amazon.com no longer functions and cannot even let you buy a “celebri-duck ” off their website,cause their sales software no longer functions, why not tell them to go to Hell also?Try not to buy anything off Amazon, if we can?Good idea.
And, I will try to discover other Senior things going on in Eugene Oregon, the new L.A. and N.Y.C. of traffic jams, SMOG, clutter, inability to use Medicare in Oregon doctors any more. and my inability to get Oregon Allergy Associates to actually do anything for all my pollen and hay fever sinus infections, cause they hate old people and their hate their Medicare and their disabilities.–and they must be one of the very worst allergy clinics in all of Oregon.
Dr. Buck and his associates hate old people at first sight, cannot do tests accurately, and tell you”go home and clean your house,that is your cure.”–cause discrimination against old people, altho illegal in the United States according to depts. of the fed. govt. still goes on cause also this country hates their old people to death.–The vicious discrimination against the old people with Medicare by their own fed. govt. is bad enough. Obama did steal many billions out of Medicare to finance his Obamacare,and even Trump cannot get rid of that stinking rotten affront to the medical and consumer society.
So if you want allergy treatment, in Eugene Oregon, you better be very young, have billions of bucks of insurance, and know that “the ends justify the means”to just about every doctor now in Oregon. Doctors do not go into the business for their health, or anyone elses’.They have horrible debt. from education,and now they are not gonna give old people their help and treatment. Looks like we seniors are hated and reviled for not longer being young,not having lots of dough, or having wonderful anything left after a long hard life.
I hate to say this, I am really beginning to hate doctors too,.cause I don’t even like having to ask them to do their pledge to cure and heal.The pledge should be,”I hereby become a professional money maker,and will try to heal those with lotsa money, importance, and Kaiser Permanente behind me.Please santify me before the God of self importance, and professional social standing and wonderfulness.”
It is not an era that the little person can easily survive in; you can’t buy a fucking “Celebri-duck” off Amazon; you cannot get your hay fever treated by any of the local “quacks”,.–you cannot get Medicare to pay for anything any more,(cause it is sucked to death by our wonderful leaders, thank you,Obama) and you just cannot get a break in any corporation or huge company or producer of stuff. Yahoo screws you over; you get age discrimination from Oregon Allergy Associates, and you just cannot get a damn thing to work any more.
Time to become a hippie again; “Tune in, turn on,and drop out.”There was never a better time for revolting against the Establishment. –Refusing to co-operate in the national census (I tried to_)-refusing to buy a cell phone; refusing to change my password so it is not filthy, (ha ha)-and refusing to let all these big fuckers and computer giants make themselves so important in everyone’s lives; all you seniors know what I mean., Many of you were born in my era,and many of you went back to society to just make a living and have kids.
–I am here to tell you, remember how you would never let “THE CORPORATE-GOVT.-INDUSTRIAL-COMPLEX” take over all your lives,and make themselves the new Dictators of the World and the USA.You can’t change it all, but you don’t have to make them all so important in your everyday lives. You don’t have to get a cell phone; you don’t have to worship doctors,and you do not have to let computer technology become the God it wants to be, even to we seniors.
You don’t have to let Yahoo email make your life a living Hell, it is only a Goddamned software,and it is not a person or animal. Your cat is more important; people are still more important,and computers are only the instruments that help us get together. If you are a religious person, or even if you are not, you realize that PEOPLE STILL COME BEFORE STUFF AND CONTRAPTIONS. The money changers do not belong in your temple; tell them to get the fuck out.–Tell Amazon to watch their backs in the future; and if you can still turn on with a cup of tea,and a nice book,or music, and forget all the crappy world we life in, then you are still a human being too. 🙂

“SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!”
Carolyn found me, this warm June Day,trying to unhook my desktop computer,so I could throw it thru the window==and with it,my Facebook acct. “STOP DON’T DO IT!!!”She yelled, taking me by the shoulders,and setting me down(while the computer dropped heavily on the floor; it was ok,that old computer takes plenty of assults by everything over the years,in fact,I was not gonna upgrade to a new computer I was just gonna refurbish to the new windows in the same frame.)
–Or I was going to follow the path of my sister,and get an Apple,and learn to do it their way.OK, Apples are expensive, but let’s face it,I am a computer-nerd..Not that I know how to do a lot,but writing in a blog is helping my old brain to stay more “fresh “like a new cabbage…instead of an old rotten cabbage.I hate rotten cabbage, yuk!!.
“You were throwing away the whole computer because of Facebook?”asked Carolyn, getting me a mild tranquilizer.(We old people have great access to DRUGS. Just wait till you get old,and fake a lot of pain (mine is not fake)and get all that wonderful cornucopia of MEDS. PAIN KILLERS. (Well, pain killers are not that easy to get on Medicare.Or medicaid. .I really think you have to go to your friendly neighborhood drug dealer.My sister gets em,but she has had a lot of pain lately;and I am always a pain in in the butt.)
Well, now Facebook has gotten to be a REAL PAIN IN THE BUTT. WHY? I told Carolyn,”Its’ because Facebook wants a picture of me,and I sent them a painting of me, someone did.They hated it.I got furious,cause now they want to do a whole catalog of all things about you, EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. And you know Facebook, they blab it all over everywhere!! Suckerburg has the biggest loud mouth,of any computer asshole I know of. (OOPS, well,I do not like Bill Gates,partly because he hides that he is autistic, too, like he’s ashamed of it.)
(TO BE CONTINUED, AFTER WE PARTY)
But basically, there is not way to resolve bad software browsers and screwy, dishonest and badly run computer software companies.They are big, and I am not.They make everything, and I do not.Suckerberg and Bill Gates and Microsoft and Oracle are all about POWER. TECHNOLOGICAL POWER is the new royalty and dictatorship. Little nebbishes like Waterfox, still retain all the evil and dysfunction of Firefox. –and we consumers can either accept it, or go try Apple to see if it’s any better.
Or, we can disconnect from computers and technology as much as we can, step back from the keyboard (at least from the damn “healthy” keyboards) and go immerse ourselves in the rest of the world WITHOUT FUCKING COMPUTERS. YES, there is a world out there without them!!And when China manufactures nothing but junk,and ditto every computer and software, there is still crafts, art, and other not very techie things to do.–Thank God!!(or whatever science source is running the universe without a person-hood. )
I do not like to think about the end of my life.Usually, it depends on how your life went.Did you enjoy it, was it full of purpose and joy?Or was it the way most folk on earth have it, a large, fat pain?–A big struggle, frustrating, and you spent most of your time watching “Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker as partners in “Rush Hour 3”? (not a bad movie, but not the real purpose of life, surely?)
If, like me, you had a life time of frustration, struggle and mere survivor-ship, then the end of life is just another case of your not being in control-=-of anything in your life, and once again, you don’t know what it was for,or what happens after it.Hopefully it will be THE END FINALLY.
Hamlet was right, “the void is best, you get some rest.” “to sleep, perhaps to dream..” well, at least to go home. Home, which is not here,and never was meant to be. Probably it is was just a “game” a run-amuck, thrill-movie of pain, mistakes, no power, and always bad judgement and lack of what to do right–and not do wrong. The game you never asked to be put in,and were dumped into any how, willy-nilly. The very worst of computer games, far worse than “Assault of Bank Robbing in the 21st Century-World War no. 300.”–or whatever popular garbage is running the earth right now.
. Don’t take it seriously, it was all just a big fucking lark.And Suckerberg and his little Facebook empire you just cannot seriously regard as a significant acme of life here. –No Acme, no Idol. It’s a bunch of algorithyms, at best (spelling!) and in a thousand or so years, no one will even remember it. No one will remember computers, technology, or anyone involved in it. So why don’t you start that attitude, yourself, right now? It couldn’t hurt.

“SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!_”
..My friend in Michigan was really thinking about moving to Oregon,for real.I had to tell her the facts,so I called her the other day.(After I got out of my iron lung,and was forced to breathe the real air of the Willamette Valley;that rare scent redolent of massive clouds of SMOG hanging over the Valley, punctuated with the strong scent of gasoline,and the asthmatic tang of multiple florid allergies.)
“Look,”I said,”I know you have COPD,and you can’t go where there are strong allergies.But that is ORegon!Besides,they spray insecticides from helicopters,thru the air,all over,that is even worse!!”COFF COFF. “I don’t believe it,”she answered,”how come you are still there?” “I can’t move off this piece of shit River Road,”I answered. “Otherwise,I have not enough money to go elsewhere!!”
I AM STUCK like the proverbial mosquito,in the piece of shitty amber.
You might like amber,but the mosquito sure does not.COFF COFF
I will not rhadsodize about the many ways one is stuck in life,but you already know them.From the time you are born,you are stuck in the physical and (otherwise but just as bad)–MONEY being one of the biggest.
“You need to go and look online at what rent is going for here now,”I replied to my friend.”Even the working bank tellers have to have several roommates.You are sick and disabled,and Steve (her husband)does not make much money.” COFF COFF SNEEZE .”You might easily never get rentals, unless you don’t mind living in a storage facility.(I think they raid those here,every week or so._)”You guys would not like driving it is L.A. at top speed,but that is all day long—not just in morn. and night time.”
“Besides,”I sighed,”The homeless have taken over Eugene,Lane County,the U.of Oregon campus and living areas.You would not like having to watch them pee in the street grating every morning.It gets repulsive.The toilet papers lingers all day long.”–besides,the homeless had taken over PORTLAND AND OREGON AT LARGE. There was no way for people,idiots,who wanted to move here,to visit(COFF COFF COFFF SNEEZE_) –to get rid of the illusion of “the beautiful Pacific Northwest.”
I already had to put up with complaints from friends who out in nature,ran into the bathrooms and hideouts of the homeless,just about in every meadow and glade.I kept explaining,”You cannot throw them all out!!You’d need ALL OF THE NATIONAL GUARD TO DO THAT!And a lot of the National Guard is in Iraq,or other war areas.”
—besides those people, the HUNTERS were getting aggravated, trying to hunt,and shooting a homeless person instead!!!You can’t take that home to fry,or broil,or bar-be-que over coals. They don’t taste as good as ducks.
–must be all the SMOG and gasoline they ingest too.It’s worse than grilling a ciggerette smoker.
I got off the phone,because I had to go to the local Comcast office,to complain about their transmitting the royal wedding all over the BBC,for at least a whole day,taking off the X-Files,and anything else not Brit-royal.I had to do it in person,cause BBCAMERICA, THE CORPORATION, had no way to complain .You could not complain to them,they were too big a corporation.Total frustration complaining with any company,was cause corporations were TOO BIG TO TAKE COMPLAINTS. They just shrugged off the billions of complaints from consumers, like we were all little ants on a big Congressional picnic.
“TOO BIG TO BITE.”
But when I got there,the same bunch who had thrown the fur-=coat company out of Portland (that was on their t-shirt fronts)_was busily trashing,and burning down the local Comcast headquarters, yelling”NO MORE BBCAMERICA!! NO MORE ROYAL WEDDINGS!! DOWN WITH THE BBC AND ROYALTY!!”–AND the paltry amt. of police in Eugene,could not stop them.(It’s about 2 on duty.)–and the Sheriff’s office refused to send any–(“not our jurisdiction,and no gun involved.”_)–so I had to just squat behind a staff car,and watch furious,white,long-haired=bearded nuts rant and rave,and burn the Brit flag. It was obvious they were the “hipsters” from Portland alright, they were really proud of that fur-fury._
“Who are you?!!”One of the fat ones rasped at me,covered with shreds of the flag.”Uh–I just came down here to give you guys moral support,”I murmured.”I don’t like royalty either.” “GOOD GOOD!!”The hairy fellow went back to his screaming,yelling,and burning. Oh,dear. Our inability to complain to huge corporations, like the BBCAMERICA Corporation,or the AMC Corp.,was getting to people with lower frustration points.–like the destroy-fur guys.
I decided to go home, turn on the telly,and watch it burn on the news.I wonder if that would work with the Conde Nast corporation?Pick a plum office, cause you cannot get yer Vanity Fair cancelled,and just fire=bomb,and burn down a major office instead? NYC would be the perfect place,they let anything go down!!Remember? A little fire-bombing those fire and police would not even notice.–like a mosquito bite.
Only if you wanted to take a fun trip to the Big Rotten Apple,make it a party,and be sure to bring plenty of booze and plastic explosive.Make sure some of your party were African-Americans so the police could not hassle you.–and you could sue the NYC police dept. later,if they did.
OH,SIGH,ain’t the Pacific Northwest great? Ain’t the great-out-of-doors, great?Even if it was full of homeless living in it? Ain’t the wonderful fresh,cloudy, sunless,and polluted mountain air great here? Don’t you just LOVE LIVING HERE? Aren’t you glad they found out,”how to complain to corporations”?–so you can do it to Frigidaire when your newish fridge breaks apart again? –
=Just complain the All American way!! Burn down the asshole’s offices,and don’t bother to throw that tea in the dumb bay!! Who says we have to put up with real fur in Portland?NO WAY JOSE!!!SYN-THET-IC FUR FOR EVERYONE!!!
And most of all, don’t put up with Brit-royalty on your comcast t.v.screen,,this is AMERICA. Thank you.

“satire is our middle name!!”
(SOME OREGON ARTIST SOLD ME THEIR CRAP REALLY CHEAP)
I had finally gotten the urge to MOVE OUT OF EUGENE,and maybe now I had the money to do it with.–Depending on the PRICES we could get for this whole ball of shit which is stuck on River Road.People are taking down those”for sale”signs here,cause guess what?.
I looked it up;EVERYONE IS COMING TO OREGON!!SUCKERS~!
I was told this cause a younger person told me,”Hey,everyone is coming to Oregon!!” :”Where from?” I asked,mystified.”From everywhere in the country!Texas!!California!NYC! All the other states!”she said enthusiastically.:”Oregon is the new California!!”
I tried to call my sister,but her answering machine was on; I needed to talk to her in person.This dinky little house was sitting on slightly less than an acre of l,and.I was sick of the noise from the road,and the massive traffic;Springfield kept looking better and better.I did not want to RENT over there,I wanted to BUY A TINY HOUSE or a nice flat.–with a tiny backyard for the cat.I was only one person,what kinda space did I need?Well,and up and down River Road,every business and people too, were getting robbed at gun point. OOPS..
I carefully loaded the revolver;I needed to take a class.)But when I did talk to my sister,she set me straight about”making 600.-000 bucks off this land and buying a new place in Springfield(where I wanted to move to.)_
“For one thing,”she said,”I know a lotta older people who inherited a place from their parents or family,and cannot afford to sell it, and have to live in it.
“–Cause they would have to get a new mortgage,and have taxes on it.Also,I would get more taxes where I moved to.–and the Oregon we knew,is now so expensive, you cannot afford to sell the place,and find another one cheap enough to buy.
“You’d get so many taxes,on everything,and taxes on a mortgage,you’d be paying a fortune.Those so–called new comers cannot afford to pay you $300,000. in one piece;they’re a bunch of Johnny-come-lately-jerks who want a bargain in ORegon,,for nothing.They’d put nothing down, and would just pay a small amt. to the bankers every month.You’d not really get $300,000– you are not really getting a good deal, you’re taking a bath,and the newcomers(who incidentally are making all the prices go so high)would get the best of the deal—not you.
“So the only thing you can do,is sit on the land and live there.Everything else makes all your taxes and costs go up. Because they are coming there,and making every single cost of stupid Oregon go up!!” I had to admit she was right about that;since all the newcomers had moved here, all the prices of food,everything,had gone up.Many of our costs were now higher than California.
They were recently passing new Oregon taxes, a lot of them,cause the state govt. was going to take advantage of all these suckers who moved here.”They’re pretty stupid to come here,”I said,”The real facts are,the state govt. of Oregon is going broke,cannot pay their civil servants’ huge pension-retirement ,and it ,the govt.,will have to default, to avoid paying for those huge pension plans..”(Yes, a bunch of us already know this,and I had told my sister.)
YES,DEFAULTING OREGON STATE GOVT. SOME of you already know this;(I do.) And don’t think the governor has the balls to do it;so far,the Oregon governors had broken state law,not executed child-murderers,as Oregonians had voted for,and was legal.They let the crap-asses live. And,the governors have done dirty,dishonest stuff while their partners did the same,and the last governor got thrown out of office. This present governor was desperately trying to sell a huge old state park,which was thousands of acres,for a few measly millions,cause there is no money for schools in the state. If they do that, a zillion campers will not longer have places to camp every summer.
“Do the new comers know that last part?”asked my sister.”No,they don’t know,they still think they have moved to California and that we have the Sierra Club which in Cali fights for the rights of forests. “NOT HERE.Here, we sell our state parks to timber-logging companies to cut down.”Oh,I forgot, some of the county employees told me that Lane County itself could default,cause it is in the crap hole for millions of dollars too.There’s already been a five percent cut across the board of all depts.–and there will be more county cuts in services,if the state govt. does more cutting.”Its’ why there is a bunch of new Oregon taxes,including the bicycle tax. (ha ha)
All those newcomers who move here,do not know they are moving to a state which very likely will default,just like Michigan did.–cutting every single service to the bone.That includes all monies to police and sherrif’s dept.,Our county had just gotten sued,for millions of bucks in a private suit. The state govt. sees all those newcomers moving here,and will tax them to the bone.
You guys have moved to the most dishonest(ok, not sure about that,but one of the–) states in creation,and also one of the dumbest. I’m a native I would know. ORegon has never been very smart.
Oregon also has about the most homeless in the United States,cause no one was trying to keep them out,and everyone was saying,”Hey,Oregon is a safe place to crash!!All over the state!”—and they’ve been moving here like fleas on a dog.None of the counties or state govt. has tried to throw the outsiders out,or discouraged them from coming..They take over the main libraries,and we have to avoid going to the library cause of the bed bugs and gang-shootings. so much for.. Fun!!
My sister really did remember Oregon pretty well,which was why she was never going to move back here.And she knew just what those newcomers were going to move into.–Not like we had any sympathy.A sucker is a sucker.And W.C. Fields had the right attitude.”You know Portland has GANGS AND DRUGS NOW,”i told my sister.We had lived there when it was just a little town. :”Oh,and a whole big group of “Utopians” who lived in NYC,has moved there.–(What ever they are.)”
I also hate that all the medical people are leaving the state.No money here!!You can’t be a doctor where no one has money.The doctors never volunteered to live and work in a penniless slum.
Even poor little Portland was no longer just a little town.It was quickly turning into NYC.–And Los Angeles.And Texas(Houston particularly)_and New Jersey.–Now Oregon highways and roads were JAMMED AND UNMOVING. The drugs and alcohol in Eugene were encouraging so much crime and robberies.WHY would someone want to move to a state,that was exactly like the one they were trying to get away from?
I’d be glad to sell mine,and move to Arizona–just for the dry heat!~!I’d move to Nebraska cause the weather was so bad,no one else would follow me!!Ditto to North and South Dakota!!I am not afraid of SNOW, OREGON HAD TONS OF IT!!NOT NOW.But the smog,overcast days and days of no light, horrible allergies in Willamette Valley, ,and plenty darkness?What the Hell who needs that?Oregon has no jobs,but many homeless,and eventually there won’t be real state or county govts.
The sheriff’s dept. already shot its self in the hand–and the foot,and the leg–We already got the police of Macon Georgia.–all with red necks.I still don’t like all the Country-Western-shit on radio,and I turn it off,I hate it.
Any of you, you”re not trapped here–yet.Turn around,and go back to the part of L.A.,NYC,Texas,and Chicago and Arizona you came from.I can no longer move away, but you can.Stay in some place where Gluten is not evil,,GMOS are not a big deal,and Canadian medical insurance is not viewed as a good thing.–You can stay away from this recovering-Meth-big piece of L.A. shit,and NYC slums, festering Chicago, and count your blessings.You all can still get away.Boy,I wish I were you.L.A. starting to look really good by now. At least San Diego has a great zoo.
(Sandraminadotty, sorry to be stuck here,. but I am. You guys who ain’t moved here yet, think twice about that.We also got “Ice storms” and “fire storms”, where houses catch fire and burn like Hades. I never saw anything like that in Sacramento.Wierd, huh? Ask my friend Charlene.).
