(SATIRE IS OUR MIDDLE NAME!)
(RARE PAINTING OF EUGENE OREGON TREE, SOMETHING RAPIDLY DWINDELING IN SUPPLY, DUE TO AMBITIOUS LOCAL GOVT.)
I am thinking about how limited my life has become, now that I do not live in a big city. You cannot call Eugene Oregon a big city – – it is a big PROVINCIAL BURG, GENTRIFIED, OVER – POPULATED,, with TRAFFIC and SMOG.
but there doesn’t seem to be much else. If you are trying to find any kind of supplies, besides knitting, you will have to look at nearby cities, for anything you want to buy. Start with Springfield – –and you will definitely need a car, truck, or a bicycle, electrified, or some kind of scooter (we are not talking wheelchair here) to get around all the freeways that take the place of the trees that used to grow here..
this can be very frustrating, because for all the talk of Eugene Oregon being so sophisticated,, and high end, organic,, “environmentally chic”, and mindful of the ecology, everyone has a car, and the AIR is so SMOGGY, if you have lung trouble,, you should not live here. (Oh, and I forgot all the allergies mixed up with the smog.)
is amazing that in this tiny BURG, which would be ideal for local bus service to get everywhere, the bus service has been cut drastically (except for the EMX Green Dragon bus service which only goes to specific places, and not many) and you have to have a car to get anywhere. Blame the local residents and government – – wherever they came from, these outsiders, and the local government,have decided that Eugene and Oregon would be delightful for lots of freeways and lots of cars.. That is it.
so, in the first place you need a car; now, what are you looking for to buy? I am looking for fabric, and I want big places with lots of it, and discount prices, because I’m poor. All I want to do is, makes a very simple dresses and maybe some very wide summer pants, for myself. I’m not going into business. However, all around Springfield and Eugene just about the only fabric store is JOANN’s FABRICS. In Springfield. And if you don’t like that, you have to go way way outside. And I don’t like JoAnn, it is overpriced, badly-made fabric, and I don’t like going there.
.IT is the pits., but then, that’s Eugene..so, where else can you go outside Eugene and Springfield to get fabric for yourself? The answer is: the city of PORTLAND. Yes, the Valley of the hipster, which even had a TV show named after it.”PORTLANDIA”.
You have to get on your computer, (and if you are a senior, no matter how old, it is very necessary for you either to have access to a computer, or at least only a cheap lousy one, because everything is online now )– – a lot of the time, because the civilization of the United States is crumbling,.all the stores of every single supply, jewelry, beads, fabric and textiles, books, everything you can think of, (even in California!) is going bankrupt, falling apart, exiting the United States, or simply going out of business, and it is much harder to get any kind of PRODUCTS to make something, or to just get something you need..
There is one exception to this rule; SPORTING GOODS..Springfield and Eugene seems to have a lot of, or at least one exceptional, stores of sporting goods.Cabelas’.
I guess that’s because men still own the planet. And, they like sports of all kinds. So if you’re product is not available, anywhere else, you will have to find it in something like SPORTING GOODS. Even rain–gear – – even CROCKS – – the little shoes.
Just about anything, if it’s in sporting goods, and men need it, it’s going to be available in Eugene and Springfield. I’m not even mentioning the gun stores. Have fun with that, I plan to check out some of the new ones, and get a new 22 handgun.– – if I can afford it. Oh, and if I can afford to go to a place to SHOOT IT. Ha ha!
if I do it in my very lengthy and overgrown backyard, my stupid neighbors will call the police on me – – just for shooting a couple of empty tin cans. Boy, I wish we were rural again really rural truly!
the hell with gentrification!let’s hope that GENTRIFICATION it self crumbles into dust. As long as civilization is going to hell, take gentrification with it! BLAH!
so, you don’t have a car,maybe you are a senior, with bad feet,, and you’re not athletically getting around a big city anymore. What can you take, in Portland? It is called the “Tri-Met” bus system. But if you have to go outside Portland, to get to a discount fabric store, once again, GO BUY A CAR, or steal one, and go get cheap insurance from that rip–off artist on TV, called “the general”.
Screw the God damn insurance! Everybody now requires INSURANCE for everything! And, it makes the society very broken and very expensive.so, we have settled the matter, of how to buy products and supplies you need, in Eugene; you have to go OUTSIDE. – – Even Springfield. Very likely all the way to Portland. And if you can’t get it in Portland, go to Seattle,, and cross your fingers they have it there.
(I have distant relatives in Seattle, but they’re not crazy about me, and I’m not crazy about them anymore either. However, if you go to Seattle the Sound is very beautiful, go get on the ferry, and take a little toot around, it’s beautiful. Especially at sunset.it’s definitely worth it. Maybe I should go visit my cousin, who is into STEAM PUNK. And has some kind of boat that runs by steam.)
talk about hipsters and their chic little hobbies!that is Oregon and Washington states.
so, what can you actually do while you are in the city of EUGENE? Lane County?here are your basic possibilities. Go to the University of Oregon, and RAPE all the women in Eugene.statistics say that if you live in an area where there is a university or college,, the town is going to have a lot of rape. So what’s new with human beings? Deal with it.
and, if you get raped, you can go to the very good organization of counseling called “SASS”, in town, deals with all kinds of sexual abuse, rape, domestic abuse, and incest and stuff like that. WE pretty much believe that this organization is here, very likely because of the University of Oregon. It’s not like it hasn’t happened before, here .
we of course cannot leave this out;FIREARMS.for All the anti-gun laws, all over again, from our very sweet dumb asshole legislature, we have firearms all over the place, and you can buy everything you want. There is a very good store, absolutely gourmet, in Springfield.. There is a really great one in Santa Clara Ctr., called “Oak Grove guns”. Very nice people. Very nice guns! SHOOT, bang bang! Go out and make some poor animal in the wild extinct today! They’ve already gotten rid of the Oregon Lynx, that Oregon big– small cat Is extinct in the wild here.so I guess we should label this under, HUNTING and FISHING.
Next out, COUGARS. We’re shooting and killing cougars like there’s no tomorrow, it’s so God damn much fun! And, guess who is doing it the most? The Department of Fish and wildlife! Go figure.I guess they just really enjoy it.
so what else can you do and buy in Eugene?ORGANIC FOOD and ORGANIC PRODUCE. But you can expect to pay a very pretty penny for it, and have to put up with all the super hipster organic fiends who occupy Eugene.(oh, also we do have OCCUPY, the organization, or what ever it is).
– – don’t leave that out!)and, we will not leave out lots of MARIJUANA , POT, and dope and other types of drugs. Anything you require. Okay, some of it’s not legal, but that doesn’t stop us here.Eugene rivals any big city for drugs.
Also to go with your pot, the basic food situation in Eugene, and the County is PIZZA. All kinds of pizza, CHEAP pizza, expensive pizza, my favorite “Abbys’ Pizza,” which is the local pizzeria. – – Any kind of fast food you can think of, “taco time, Taco Bell, Carl’s Junior, and any type of very cheap Chinese food. There is supposed to be some actual really genuine Chinese food here, but since we’ve never eaten that before, in our history we really don’t know what the hell it’s like.– It might look like a bunch of seaweed and goo, the last time we googled it.
Eat that at your own risk. I would say the best pizza here, but it’s very expensive is, Abby’s pizza. It’s your waistline, not mine.there are also supposed to be some sushi places here,, eat at your own risk. In Eugene, you might find a few little chic hipster places to eat, and maybe some vegetarian. Vegetarians really like it here, but we don’t care for them, we used to be one, a semi vegetarian, and now we like to eat steak.. Really really good steak! I cannot produce a place for that, I mean a restaurant.
okay what else can you buy in Eugene?ALCOHOL. Beer of all kinds, cheap and expensive, even Fetzer once in a while. And if it is ORGANIC, all the better they will just charge you a lot more money for it. TRADER JOE’S. And, beer and more beer and let’s not leave out canned beer. All kinds of beer! That is mostly the products you can buy in Eugene – – pizza and beer – – fast food, and cheap.
let’s not leave out, what you can find in Eugene; lots and lots of homeless people everywhere. Watch out for your bicycle, my sources tell me they steal and sell all your bicycles.So much for getting rid of your car.the homeless are EVERYWHERE, and they have taken over the downtown area.– – and just about everywhere else you look. I feel sorry for them, but they do really ruin the business aspect of a town, and any chance of other big businesses or industries moving here. They really do not like to live in a state full of lots of homeless. TRY TEXAS.but yes, Eugene has lots and lots of homeless all over the place, pick and choose the one you want. We won’t miss any of them if you do.
another thing we seem to have plenty of, lately and that is PEDOPHILES.yes, we do seem to have a lot of pedophiles now, and they even tried to snatch kids off their bicycles, in broad daylight in front of their families. And, other devious means.so if you have kids, and you move here be very very careful. Once a pedophile has a child or baby, you’ll never see it again. Of course, maybe you have lots to spare, but it’s still a bad idea to let a pedophile get your kid. It makes you look really really bad.
another thing, a product that we have in abundance, in Eugene is: very very low income jobs. Very! If you’re looking for a job here, if you don’t have a lot of pull and power, the job that you will be likely to get here will be very very low income, no matter how many degrees from universities you have.once again,, TRY TEXAS.the environment may suck to death, but at least they respect jobs and work and manufacturing.
so what else can you get or by in Eugene Oregon? Very very EXTREME LIBERAL POLITICS and ORGANIZATIONS. That includes all the newspapers. Any community organizations, ditto. You’re not going to find very advertised, or public, right wing or conservative guys standing out here, we hide out for our own safety..once you come out in public, that you are not a absolutely extreme liberal political jerk, your safety is in peril, and I mean physically.it Is much better to keep your mouth shut, and vote Trump in in very large numbers of voters. Okay, he’s not much of a choice, but what the hell do we do with Mrs. Clinton, the big cheat and thief? We’d just have to put her in prison eventually.
How can a leader rule while they’re in prison?only the Mafia can do that.I don’t think we actually have any Mafia here – – yet. And, I’m not sure if we actually have Arabic terrorists, here but it’s very likely there incubating. Oregon used to be the place where all kinds of groups and people went, to hide away from the rest of the world, – – and often be very weird. Speaking of terrorist incubating, I should include the product called “University of Oregon”.
Yes, Eugene has its own extremely liberal and political, crazy, very very expensive University. Very expensive high-end sports.altho, they don’t actually win. Too bad, what a waste of millions of bucks, you can throw away on other stuff! Oh, like more organic produce.and you have to realize that statistically, all those rapes and too loud parties, are a product of this University.
another product of Eugene is “the highest rate of child sexual abuse, and child incest in all of Oregon.” there have been, some very bad cases of child sexual abuse, and torture, and murder of children, in this County. WHY we have the highest rate in the whole state, is a puzzle. That would give you a clue about Eugene and this County; maybe there is a characteristic here, that promotes it.–think about clearly whether you want to live here among it.I believe that Multinomah County, ( SPELLING!)also Has a very bad famous case of a child disappearing, and everybody blamed the parents and somebody’s boyfriend.– – and of course they never found a kid again.
. Oh well, what can you do, in India, it would NOT matter at all if you missed a kid or two, there will always be hundreds of others, to take its place.– – and feed and clothe, and love, then keep safe from pedophiles.
Experts say that one of the biggest problems in the planet now, is that it is very very overpopulated with people. We have too many PEOPLE! We can’t feed them, and house them, and find any place for them to live, so they’re all going to be fighting and remain and making war over all the few resources that the planet has left.
after all, the name of this blog is “what to do while the planet dies” so we are taking that matter under observation. It doesn’t mean we’re doing anything about it. The last thing that human beings do, in all their problems, is actually solve them. Or, even think about solving them!
That would be too logical and rational! And that is against the rules and laws of being a human being. We are very very self-destructive and destructive of everything else that surrounds us.and, that is definitely a feature you can find in Eugene Oregon.just call us the “people who hate TREES and are cutting them all down like crazy.” that’s one of the reasons we have so many Arborists,and people like Bi-polar Mayor Kitty, and Kate the Oregon governor.these leaders of ours, are very hateful of trees.They take our public state parks, and sell them to lumber companies, and don’t even think twice about it.
here we come to the end of our article, which is sadly much too long,and the last product that you can find in Eugene.. – – Lots and lots of idiocy, stupidness, self-destructism, fascism, racist –anti-white people in local newspapers,and downright terrorist, bomb throwing, crowd -protest -EVEN-EXTRA-gay-violence, and just plain VIOLENCE, and HATRED. We’ve got a ton of that, hatred for everybody else.WHY we have that so much,, is moot. Maybe because here they can get away with it, and nobody complains about all the horrible CONFLICT, warfare- politically,and anti-tolerance for other people’s opinions..—
If you don’t like the local political line, you better not live here, they just won’t put up with you.you won’t be able to say anything opposite to the local political junk, or even the local govt., they just are not tolerant.We DON’T have a democracy,. I guess you could say they’re not really LIBERAL. They are just POLITICALLY LIBERAL, and that means absolutely CRAP– Like Mrs. Clinton taking big bribes, from foreign countries.and all the liberals here still love her to death..
so if you absolutely think you’re going to move to Eugene, consider all the above situations, products, manufacturing, and style of living.(I forgot to say that we have lots of old people and retired people here, but they’re not doing anything outrageous that I know of.) I hope! No, I hope they do something outrageous! It just would be a lot of fun, ha ha ha! – – Like I get out of writing this stupid blog that nobody reads!.
(Sandraminadotty in Eugene Oregon, cause my little shack is here, and I cannot move it to Hawaii. – They wouldn’t take me either. – – I think I’m just too white. Ha ha! Have fun! it’s the only reason to stay alive.).
