Yes, Portland sucks, so does Ashland and Eugene. Too liberal, a veritable paradise of Granola (Fruits, nuts and Flakes)

I am a native SoCalif. who loves it down there. But I moved here because of the great scenery and people. Traffic jams are practically nonexistent and gangs must be invisible. Police are very active in their communities. People here have been much friendlier to me than in larger cities.

You will soon find out that a lot of locals are transplanted from Laficornia. They (we) have a hard time recognizing that the natives here seem to know everybody in their communities. So watch what you say ...it can spread very fast.

Oregon does not want you or your taxes. Stay out of METH town. Grants Pass is a Wal-Mart slum. Crime is through the roof. Gangs, druggies, cops, drunks,losers, fools and murders are common place.

There is NO work here. We have the some of the highest unemployment in the state. Oregon sucks and I wish I had the money to leave. Once you move here you are stuck; in poverty, surrounded by idiots, no medical care, schools are terrible, the tax system of this state is ridiculous. The criminals are released because there is no law enforcement. Do I sound bitter? You bet. I have lived here since 1982 and it has not improved. We go through cycles of bad to worse. I find comfort that the rest of the country is feeling the same financial pain employed Oregonians have felt since as far back as I can remember. If I had any savings left I would leave.

"Ashland is a very liberal town in a very conservative (aka Republican) state."

I guess that lady did not follow the results of the last few elections for president!

Obviously people feel very strongly about Oregon and whether or not it is a good place to live. Here is my take. I LOVE Oregon, I think it is a fantastic place to live. I love that I am an hour and a half from both the beach and Mt. Hood. I love that I can take a day trip and see some of the most beautiful country there is. It does rain a lot, but some people really like the rain. If you suffer from seasonal affective disorder you should not live here. I was born in Azalea and went to school in Glendale. I have spent plenty of time in all of the surrounding areas in Southern Oregon. When I graduated high school, I moved to Portland. I have lived here for seven years. I visit my family and friends in Southern Oregon about once a month, but I would NEVER move back. My experience has been that many (not all) people in Southern Oregon are closed-minded, uninformed, and ready to hate. If I bring up recycling on a trip home, there's a good chance that someone will call me "tree hugger" like it's a bad thing to want to keep our planet livable for future generations. I am not by any means saying that everyone who lives in Southern Oregon is this way, but I will say that I am much happier living in a place where the majority of people I meet are open-minded, well-informed (by something other than Fox News), and ready to do something good for the world. I love the place that I grew up, but I don't always love the people there.
