The occupy protestors even had started receiving mail. They signed up for the Internet. Bryan Wiedeman put the water bill in his name. A bill left in the house indicated he owes $530. Wiedeman was arrested at Canson's home last month on charges of vandalizing ATMs and banks, part of Occupy Portland actions.
If they hired an Internet Service Provider, they're paying corporate America. If they have Internet, then they have computers - also from corporate America.
What they want: free everything. So, they've been booted out of that house. Hard to say where the kiddies will go next. Any vacant homes in your neighborhood? Amazingly, here in oh-so-tolerant Portland, you can break and enter, live in a place for months without paying a dime, and just move on. No court dates, no jail time - how convenient!
As if you needed any more, add this one to your list: they don't appear to bother to check minor things like immigration status of their employees.
This cheerful fellow got into a bit of trouble last month after attempting to stab a co-worker at the Tanasbourne location during the course of an argument over a female employee. He pled guilty to a count of attempted second-degree assault and gets to spend 84 days receiving three hots and a cot at the Washington County pokey, after which he gets processed for deportation back to his home. It's a sad situation; likely just a "cultural misunderstanding".
You'd think the Missouri Senator would be all over the media; having voted as she did for Obamacare, you'd expect her to be out there speechifying in the wake of the SCOTUS decision. But you'd be wrong. According to local news media there, she's "hiding". Heck, she's not going to attend the Democrat Coronation Convention, for that matter. She's in a tight race, desperate to hold onto her spot in the Senate - and as mentioned here the other day, she has some killer competion.
The former Governor and her fellow Metro Councilor Carl Hosticka are leading the "planning" for the Barbur Boulevard/Highway 99W corridor from Portland to Newburg, and by golly, they're "listening" to what people want instead of letting "planners" tell them what to expect. Right.
It appears that they know that people want a crime-train, fewer traffic lanes, and more bicycle amenities. Oh, and big apartment complexes, too.
One area that is hoping to benefit is the corridor along Barbur Boulevard.
Barbur’s concept plan is designed to change that by adding higher density housing, sidewalks, bike lanes and commercial amenities.
In actual fact, "the area" doesn't want any of this stuff, which is why petition drives are presently occurring to place any such spending plans before the voters before the clowns start piling out of the car. The Clackistani Uprising occurred a little late in the game; folks on the west side learned from their mistakes.
Battling the Bottler: some greenie outfit called Food and Water Watch is trying to block Nestle from building a 250,000 square-foot bottling facility in economically strapped Cascade Locks, Oregon. Aside from the fact that in their minds, the company is inherently evil, the outfit "thinks" Nestle will not deliver on some of its promises, including providing 50 new jobs to town residents and mitigating any negative environmental impacts from the facility. Further, they decry the "privatization" of "public water" supplies.
Of course, nothing of the sort would occur: Nestle simply proposes to bottle spring water, which the City of Cascade Locks would sell to them - just like any other customer. Had they been around at the time, there's little doubt that the outfit would've opposed Intel, Siltronics, and other high-volume water users around the Portland metro area.
Like all greenies, they know what's best - and what's best is keeping short-term construction jobs and long-term plant jobs out of pristine Cascade Locks. It's For Their Own Good™.
