Uh......you first,BTW, the new law in Oregon is that if you loan or allow anyone else to handle your firearm, even for a moment, you must do a background check with the state police. That should be interesting at a gun show or a firearms training class. See what happens when moonbats take over? Heads up everybody.....
After you mentioned that in one of your comments I did some research and read all about how Bloomberg spent enough money in Oregon to buy enough new Democratic party seats to get that passed. Then I remembered this video, which dovetails with event's out there. One thing you have to say though, people who are like the folks in the video never need to work or worry about anything. Oh, well. It was just a thought.......:-)
I live just south of Portland, and I make a point of never ever driving into Portland.It's just not safe. If you even start to think about turning onto a road with abicyclist present, you are taking your whole future into your hands. Thebicyclists own all the roads, just ask them. Then there are the Tri-Met buses. Too many red light cameras, no parking signs, street (homeless?) people, gangs,thugs, etc. Portland has been taken over by the worst from Calif. Tiller, Oregonis more my style.
But I liked the clowns! Well, maybe starting a commune with right wing survivalists and gun owners in Portland was a bad idea. If I can't bring my 1988 crew cab, long bed diesel F250 I'm not going.
If your drive through every mud puddle you can find up in the mountains around here, get nice and dirty, I'd go with you into Portland and giveyou a guided tour through all the Prius loving snobby areas of townthat would just stop and stare at you as you drive by. It'd be up to youas to what kind of hand signals you would use as you wave at the liberal loving idiots that have taken over. I just hope your diesel smokes.
I long for the good old days when Oregon had highway signs that told Californians to go home and stay away. Now we have been totally Californicated, except for the east high desert side. It just breaks my heart. Maybe Bloomberg should visit here.
My diesel used to smoke, and I could pull up next to a group of bicyclists who were hogging the road, drop into third, and lay down a smoke screen like a World War I destroyer. Then I had it worked on and alas, I no longer have that capability. Weirdly enough, my mom just moved from California to Oregon, and she drives a Prius. I'm sure she would turn her nose up and make a snide remark if I roared by in my 12 mpg diesel land tank, provided she didn't know it was her eldest son! I don't use too many hand signals here in Georgia as there are too many people who have weapons and short fuses, but I expect I could be creative in Portland without running much risk. That would be a fun trip to make, Anon. Who knows, some day...
Tewshooz, My brothers both went to Oregon State in the early to mid seventies and that sentiment was prevelent then. I guess California just overwhelmed Oregon, as Florida has largely overwhelmed Georgia. I haven't been in the High Deset since 2005 , I believe, but I sure did like it. Felt strange watching the wild fires burning and nobody really caring much. Back here a wild fire is a major panic. Bloomberg won't visit there, he has little use for the "little people" other than making laws to make them live as he deems appropriate. No big sodas for you!
Dang . . . I thought they meant Portland Maine. No wonder it didn't work out for me.
Well, I'm hearing we might not be welcome in Oregon either so I guess it's a wash. ;-)
You live a safe distance from Portland..... It is inhabited by the commies and Free Thinkers....the epitome of Liberalism. I call it the Peoples Republik of Oregon.It is where the pinkos from Seattle move to be closer to Ground Zero. I think Che Guevarra was from Portland.....
Well, I thought I might be a hit there, I have a whole closet full of flannel shirts...Portland sounds like an Oregon version of San Francisco. I was kind of hoping to form a commune though. I mean, Im going on 63 and have never even smoked pot....... So much to experience, so little time!
Ha ha ha, I don't know much about Portland but the video was a hoot! Thanks for the chuckle
I have a tendency to be all somber and grim like Odin. Everybody needs a break from life sometimes. That's why I have ferrets, they always lighten up the day. Glad you liked the video, I like it.
Tie dye and peace signs...there was such a naive innocence about the years of my youth...70's.Peace in our time and no world hunger...where did it all go wrong? Funny thing was we still enjoyed our rifles and people wanted to garden.
Fiona, I was in the Marines by June of 1971, but I had some exposure to hippy chicks in the late sixties while I was in High School. Never saw an ugly one but I was too straight laced ever to have any luck in that quarter. They only liked the "surfers" at our school. :-(
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)The 'surfer' thing only works on tourist women. Trust me I know.
Nahh, the notion of old Harry prancing around in a banana hammock with that bunch of freaks and moonbats just don't seem all that appealing. Frankly it paints quite a frightening image.
Hey, did you like my cameo in the video? I'm the guy in the motorcycle leathers with the star burst tatto who said "tatoo ink never runs dry." I thought it was a good look for me. Not bad for an old guy, you know?
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)Maybe I can win the lottery and pay for my nieghbor 'Tuco' and his brothers behind me to move to Portland and start their own commune with the rest of the freaks up there.Harry' I gotta say that again I'm too worried about the bozo's behind me. I've been here for ten years and I hang out and drink beer with the old Mexicans at the end of street that have been in the neighborhood for 40 years or more.In traditional Mexican culture the old men and old women are respected more and have seniority in decision making in the family and neighborhood. One neighbor is 87, another is 80 and several are in their 60's and down in age from there. Hell' come to think of it. I'm the youngest one.The turkeys behind me are in their early to mid 20's. I know their dad used to drink beer with the same old guys many years ago so those turkeys behind me respect the old guys.Reminds me in fact of an incident that happened about five years ago or so. One of the young punks was racing his Japanease car with that noisy weed eater sounding exhaust up and down the street.The old guy who is about 80 now got a six foot long, two by four and walked out into the street and threatened to toss the two by four into the windshield of the Japanease hot rod.The punk driving the hot rod turned around and went the other way. He did not come down the street again for at least a year and when he did start driving this way after a year or so, he was doing the speed limit.
Hey Harry.(captaincrunch)I ment to say that I'm (NOT) too worried about the bozo's behind me.
The 20 something crowd in that specific genre is dangerous. I've had some run in's up here with those types. Once on the road, and once in a convenience store. My advice is to steer clear of them if you can. If you can't , then let them see the gun early before things reach the point of no return. 9 times out of 10, those guys will shove off if they see you have a gun and no qualms about using it.They are like sharks, they can smell blood in the water and any sign of fear is just like blood to them. I try to avoid them, myself, but sometimes you can't.
