    Portland back in the news

    Seems the Portland Protest Response unit disbanded themselves. 50 officers said they've had enough citing lack of support from the dept.

    There comes a point where one would reasonably assume that learning would occur, that the fool would realize that wabbling his bandaged hand back into the fire is going to burn like the last couple of times, but no.

    Portland is a special place and they have an image to maintain. I know people that live in Portland. I sorta more or less understand it, I think.

    I grok that, and understand that- but at some point "maintaining an image" moves into a hellish sort of unwilling obligation to do a thing their heart isn't into anymore, and they actually hate, but must in order to impress people they don't actually like.

    The long past it's prime band mechanically performing a stale and rote version of their one hit for instance.

    I predict that Portland will have the first socialist mayor not unlike AOC or Rashida Harbi Tlaib, both devout socialists. It's more or less how they roll in that city.

    She's come along way in just a few short years. I can remember when she couldn't afford to pay her rent or buy a decent pair of shoes. Only in America.

    And why does everyone want to own a Tesla?

    One thing's for sure...

    Those living in Portland will receive the governance that they opt for, Heaven bless them all. The Left sure is giving the pendulum a healthy shove in their preferred direction. It'll be interesting to see what happens when it inevitably swings back.

    The media is reporting an increase of 533% in Portland's annual homicide rate. One wonders where the "tipping point" is in terms of self-inflicted suffering for the residents of Portland.
