Honestly, you should loosen those overalls. Why would anyone admit to being an Oregonian much less claim to be one if one doesn't have to?

Really now.

How does it feel to be walking around with muck on yourself all day long? Do you get used to the smell after awhile or does it just smell like home?

I hear that muck is making its way into building materials but by the time it's used for housing, it should be fairly well aired out.

If Neal is successful in making English the official language of Oregon, the government should offer remedial education for native Oregonians.

Would there be a fine for misuse of the language? Thank you for proving my point, yet again, that Oregon is a sad little state full of sad little people.

You are quite considerate in that way.

Thank you! Your overt hostility and inability to spell (this is a problem that infects everyone who comes to Oregon IMO) proves yet again that Oregon is a seriously problematic state.

I think that Oregon would buy us, perhaps, half of the Bahamas. I think asking for a direct exchange would be reaching.

More fun with opinions about Oregon, moving to Oregon, living in Oregon, dying in Oregon, being damp in Oregon....

"Oregon is awful, horrendous, can't warn people enough — 5 weeks ago

People do not tell the truth.

Find out things for yourself.

Don’t believe the,‘oh it’s so beautiful in the summer’- summer lasts about 6 weeks and most of that time it’s so hot and dusty you have to spend the time inside with the A/C. The number of days that can be enjoyed outdoors is limited to a few days in the year.

The idea of a ‘beautiful day’ in Oregon is a one where it isn’t freezing cold, grey (99% of the time or it just feels that way to your soul) and the wind isn’t whipping through hurling tree branches at your head. Oregonians don’t understand what a beautiful day really looks like to most people because they don’t really bother to see the rest of the world.

Oregon is mother nature’s joke. It’s brambles, thorns, algae and an incredible amount of mud. Oregon should try and export mud since the salmon and the wood seem to be unproductive these days. Even the Dungeness crab are tiny and small in number. Why is that?

I’ve come to the conclusion that Oregon is the most depressed and depressing state in the country. That’s why there are so few people inhabiting such a large area. I don’t know if the state creates depression, promotes it or simply draws it in.

At any rate, it’s a mind-numbing, life-destroying, hope-killing, bone-chilling place but, you know, that’s just MY OPINION. I wish someone had told me these things BEFORE.

That would have been the decent thing to do."

So if you hadn't moved away from Oregon you wouldn't have your wife and your children and yet you think that moving away from Oregon was the wrong thing to do.

Therefore you think that your wife and your children were the wrong thing and not worth moving away from Oregon for? That's pretty sad don't you think?

Thank you.

It is clear what thought processes flow through your brain and through the brain of the typical Oregonian. You wish others ill, you make fun of the homeless and less fortunate. You are unable to address those with opinions different from yours. You are intolerant and somewhat frightened of the shift key.

Thank you for being clear as to the character of Oregonians.

Californians are used to the color green($). This is why they are moving to Oregon. The Californians that are moving to Oregon are trying to escape a rat race illegal immigration takeover.
The only safe place in California is Santa Cruz County or the the hills. I recomend a trip to California to see the illegal immagration infiltration we have sustained.
I respect Oregonians, several people there escaped from this Alcatraz, California.

Why don't you simply come out and say that racist Californians who are unable to compete with illegal immigrants are fleeing to Oregon.

Have you actually lived in Oregon?

In a heavily rural, agricultural state exactly what are you expecting?

The US now consists of 1/3rd 'minorities' and will soon be half 'minorities' at which time, of course, everyone will be a minority. There are 100 million 'minorities' in the USA today of which around 40 million are Hispanics. A bipartisan group, including Bush and Kennedy, are trying to pass what amounts to 12 million amnesties for illegal immigrants currently in the USA.

It's the realization that reality has smacked you in the face.

Get used to it kiddo or move back to where you came from. The USA is a country of immigrants. It always has been and always will be.

A horrific crime UNPUNISHED in Oregon for DECADES. Deliverance anyone?

"In the summer of 1977 two young women just out of their freshman year at Yale set out on a cross-country bike trip, west to east. Near Redmond, Ore., hot, tired and already bickering, they gave things a rest by pitching their tent in a state park.

In the middle of the night, a man in a pressed cowboy shirt walked up to their tent. He began hacking away at them with an ax; he ran over their tent with his truck. One of the women, a bright young Midwesterner named Terri Jentz, stumbled from the attack scene and ran through the dark, smelling the blood from her wounds, she remembered, "like copper pennies held in a damp palm." Only the chance arrival of a frightened teenage couple, who raced the two to the local hospital in their truck, kept the two women from bleeding to death.

Women across the country heard about it, and canceled plans to bike or camp alone. Walter Cronkite read the headline on the news. Robert Pinsky, later the U.S. poet laureate, wrote a poem about it.

Jentz's ordeal then became one more chip in the mosaic of violence in America. Her biking partner, half blind from the attack, couldn't even remember what happened. Terri Jentz tried to forget.

But she couldn't.

In 1992 Jentz, now a California resident, decided to revisit Redmond. She discovered that the man she believed had attacked her had never been apprehended or charged with the crime. She learned that that he had physically abused women, intimidated men and terrorized the community. She spent years of her life returning again and again to Oregon, trying to make sense of the crime and bring her attacker to justice.

Obviously, there is no hurry in buying a home there or anywhere in Oregon. It is time to wait out the sellers until they become desperate. Maybe this will prevent a further infestation of the ticky-tacky vinyl OregonBurb housing.

"May 10, 2007

GRANTS PASS Mortgage delinquency rates in Josephine County have risen sharply as the once-frenzied housing market continues to slow.

In the first three months of the year, notices of default were filed against 112 properties, according to statistics provided by First American Title Company and the Josephine County recorder.

That number is just two shy of the 114 notices filed toward foreclosure during all of 2005. In 2006, foreclosure notices filed totaled 179.

When looked at another way, 2005 averaged 10 notices per month, 2006 averaged 15 per month and 2007 averaged 37 per month."

Misery you're killing me. Too much of what you're saying is true. There is a possibility that you are being rude to some contributors.
If you can take Eureka, you will probably do fine in Cave Junction. Bring your guns for the Halloween riot.
G.P. does have a reputation for crooked law enforcement.

Rudeness is endemic on Oregon Topix. It is endemic in Oregon.

Data show high drug and alcohol use in Oregon
Posted by The Oregonian May 29, 2007 18:24PM
Categories: Breaking News

Oregon officials expressed concern today over new figures that show high drug and alcohol use in the state. The new data, the most comprehensive ever put together, shows that Oregonians consume more alcohol than the national average, live in a state that ranks fourth nationwide for alcohol-related deaths and have a drug-mortality rate that's been double the U.S. average for five years in a row.

And the state is not just grappling with overintoxicated adults. The data show that Oregon eighth- and 11th-graders are more likely to smoke marijuana than smoke cigarettes, and the percentage of eighth-graders who said they drank alcohol in the previous 30 days was 76 percent higher than the national average.

Other details:

More than one in 20 adults in Oregon are heavy drinkers, with men 21 to 29 years old being the heaviest imbibers.
For the first time since 1998, the rate of Oregon 18- to 24-year-olds who report smoking tobacco every day exceeds the national rate.
Adult deaths from lung cancer, emphysema and chronic lower respiratory disease exceeded the nation's rate for five years in a row.
Data indicate that methamphetamine use is spreading statewide. In 2000, 50 percent of the meth-related deaths in Oregon were in the Portland area; in 2005, only 25 percent were.
The rate of use of inhalants by young people in Oregon was 50 percent higher than that nationwide.

But there was some good news: The percentage of teenage boys who said they drove after drinking was less than the U.S. rate and the use of ecstasy has dropped.

Oregon IS full. Full of left wingers who are controlling more and more of everything. It used to be the Salem-Portland crowd that controlled the state, now Grants Pass, Medford and nearly every other town of it's size is infested with this political bent. Some down to earth folk still live in these areas but they are less and less of a factor in local control. I suggest the Coast or better yet...eastern Oregon. It's largely wide open out there still. I'd suggest Northern Idaho as well but it's been infested by the same malady in the last 5 years. Also too please note that the only "real" medical facility in the area is Medford. Great Heart/Cancer center there. Best of luck.

I grew up in G.P., and have not lived there since 1993. I have to admit up front, that if I could, I would live there again. However, I would only live there for family reasons(My entire family still lives there). I now live on the East Coast, and have to admit, Oregon has spun itself out of control. This blog only goes to justify my thinking. Every time I go home I get depressed. Everywhere you look, drugs, homeless shelters, etc. No Police, well that do anything, it's out of control. I prefer living where I do now, maybe I'll just consider importing my family out here. Really, the Oregon killer, is that nobody out there seems to have any inkiling of any kind of fix for the State. It truly is heading towards a state wild west mentality. It's very sad.
