Who we gonna believe?? Trump and the right wing news media or our lying eyes.....?
As far as homeless, the State should designate an area outside of town aways for a homeless/counseling working ranch, that provides room and board nc with an agreement to participate in a program for achieving.
A place like the bagwan had with trailers and facilities. Don't look at it as a concentration camp but rather a rehab/medical retreat as a spring board.
When I was growing up I spent a lot of time downtown as a young kid and teenager. Back then they had vagrancy laws that were enforced. Skidrow was for homeless but they didn't spill over much into the hub of DT.
If wed don't take a proactive approach in addressing this issue it will only metastasize and be much worse.
Neither party cares about the homeless. If they did care, there would be no homeless. America is rich enough to spend money to the fix problem. They literally don't care to do so.
What it all boils down to is, giving a crap about your citizens. In this case, other Americans.
Homelessness is America's failed wall.
(my two cents)
What's happening in Portland is the same thing that's happening in every state in our union. People are tired of police overstepping their bounds.
People in here are part of the problem.
Your priorities aren't straight and it shows. You're worried about the WHAT instead of worrying about the WHY. You are more concerned about property than people!!
You don't seem to have any concern about the unnamed federal agents that are whisking people away in unmarked vehicles!! You are on the side of the fascists...
Ironically, you are the SAME people that complain about government overreach when the someone tells you to put on a FUCKING mask!! You people are pathetic... And we will defeat you... This RACIST system of things is going to end...
You are watching it in it's last throes...
If you're offended by this post you have some soul searching to do...
I wish I had your optimism
@dviss1 you need to find this man and stay close to him.
Moment 'absolute beast' of a protester in a Navy sweatshirt shrugs off a baton beating and tear gas attack by federal officers in Portland as President Trump claims the city has 'lost control of the anarchists and agitators'
New footage shows man in Navy sweatshirt being hit by a baton and sprayed with tear gas in Portland, Oregon
The man was seen standing in front of federal agents before he was struck at least five times with the baton
He was then sprayed with tear gas before walking away from the officers and throwing his middle fingers up
PREACH. Those buildings dont mean anything, people mean something. Glad we know where their priorities lie.
Seems counterproductive for you to lump us all (white people, I’m assuming) under the same banner. You are making a whole lot of assumptions.....which you have chastised white people for in the past. You have NO idea of what I personally think or what actions I am taking to do my part to make things better. You know what happens when you make assumptions. Don’t lower yourself to white standards you have criticized. You’re better than this. It’s this “holier than thou” attitude that makes people reluctant to get off their couches and out of their basements, because in YOUR eyes we can apparently do absolutely nothing right. Extremely demotivating......if you want respect, understanding and cooperation, you still have to extend the same regardless.
I am very tired of police overreach, and even more appalled by the federal agents agitating for further violence (Which the “protests”..... that aren’t really protests that late at night....are exacerbating). Take the time to read the threads and you’ll find most people here feel that way. Don’t tell us what we do or do not think. You don’t want to hear it from us, so please extend us the same courtesy. I personally am VERY much on your side. Quit trying to make me the enemy. Thank you.
you sure that wasn't footage from a war zone? Because it's hard to believe my President would order people to do that to our own people.
Nope, he'd never do that, he's against killing babies.
Nobody outside of Portland is taking Portland seriously. Not even the rest of Oregon.
"take it from me, a guy from wyoming"
I read it as people on this board, not just "muh white people" though I could be wrong
I think I would qualify as part of "the rest of the country". My other friends and family who grew up in Oregon and now live all over the country may qualify as well. The rest of my friends and family who still live in Oregon and don't bother going into Portland anymore might qualify as part of "the rest of Oregon". People living inside a bubble don't exactly have an outside perspective of their bubble, strange how that works.
Those aren't just moms. The women from a large Christian church in Clackamas county. Looks like they're planning on returning tonight. Good on them.
And they were tear gassed shortly after that. Because a gang of Christian Karen's is now scary to our federal overlords.
Didnt even phase him.
I do like that they're all wearing bicycle helmets.
