Oregon has lost it's mind

We are in a race between the ideology of safetyism and the facts.

Kate Brown is dangerous. The facts don't match the narrative - yet they plow forward.

And when state actors do that? That's straight Godless Commie B.S.



Time to ignore the state. And plan for the worst.

That's $5,000 for every man woman and child in Portland - which is where the tax base is being hit up.

Alternately, that's $20K for every family of four in the city. Per year.


So yeah, "lost its mind" is definitely what we're talking about here.


$2.5BBB is a ton of money for a state as small as Oregon. It's even larger for a city like PDX. The politicians don't care.

There are a lot of instances of businesses trying to reopen their doors but can’t.
Because they can’t find anyone to work. Their former employees are making more sitting on their butts at home from the gub’mint than they made actually working.

And those same people like to call us threats to their health because we have to keep working.

Duh, how else do you expect Brown Trout’s re-election to go through?

What would happen to those businesses if they hire people willing to work while their former employees sit at home?

It was hard enough to find good employees before all this crap when people actually needed jobs. How hard do you think it’s going to be to find one, let alone several now?
