I'm just a geek with attitude.
A long-term resident of Portland, I've witnessed first-hand the increasingly totalitarian nature of our state, regional, and local governments - and the folly of government "planners". In part, it's my own fault, because for years I believed in a "live and let live" approach. That apolitical philosophy was dead wrong. Older now, and I believe somewhat smarter, I oppose the taking of our money, our rights, and our future by government "planners", other bureaucrats, and officials who sincerely believe that they know what's best for all of us.
