    Fake News and a desperate attempt to stem the mass exodus of productive citizens fleeing the failed state for greener pastures out west.

    I bet there's a good chance it explodes before my 40,000th birthday.

    Where you live is much more dangerous than Portland for volcanic eruptions.....there are 13 live volcanos in the Cascades and 3 are at your back door in tight formation. Bend is a high risk area.

    But the 2nd amendment guarantees Maris the right to self-protection. Maris will shoot the volcano with his gun.

    Fake post. Our growth rate is 1.32%. Hardly the result of a failed state now is it?

    Id rather have a gun for protection by my side, than Antifa, any day. No I'm not a Nazi or racist, just an Amercian citizen that believes in the second amendment, pro choice, same sex marriage, fiscal conservativeness, limited the size of bureaucratic government, pro business, and valuing and protecting the Constitution. I also love sports!

    Oh! I am not sure I can buy that assessment.
    Lapine is not close to huge water sheds that could be interrupted by volcanic events which could cause massive floods in Portland. Nor is it in close proximity to as many threats.

    No, its not like Clinton or Trump being only two choices.
    When it comes to dealing with Volcanoes don't get to close.

    Any active Volcano could erupt at any given time, cause havoc, and have devastating consequences

    True story, and infamous city-killer Alta-Rock has been stirring them up and causing thousands of tiny earthquakes for about 7 years now on Newberry Caldera, about 5 miles from my home. Thanks Obama!
