  • I hate oregon because I owe state tax every single year, I live in washington, work in oregon, I drive on 7 miles of oregon roads every day, i get no voting rights and I owe state friggin tax every year. i get money back from the fed which use to pay to oregon :x

    An interesting fact that Clark County Washington is Oregons second largest tax base, but I deserve because if I buy a 10,000$ blender I buy it in oregon so i don't have to pay sales tax, or if I want some crackhead to pump my gas for me I go to the shell station on sandy.....

  • FYI and since you keep pushing an agenda as it concerns me, I actually lean just a bit to the left so why would I not watch a game in PDX because of leberals? Answer: I wouldn't even think about that so it wouldn't stop me one bit. For the second time I am not that guy. Don't know who he is.
    As for Whiner fans, I watched the Hawks v. Whiners Sunday night game last year with several Frisco fans in PDX so it seems that wouldn't keep me from coming down to watch a game either.


    Roughly 35% of Portland NFL fans root for the San Francisco 49ers.

    Yes we do, but no one makes us do it so it's something we have to accept. Doesn't make it any easier to swallow, but it is what it is.

    Edit: By the way, Portland is also now the 1st city in the United States where craft beer is the majority seller. Bud, Miller, and Coors have nothin' on us.

    Seattle's not even in the same ballpark.

    Kudos to PDX for kickin' ass in the beer dept.! Good beer gets more difficult to find the further you get away from the NW. The rest of the country is catching on, but they have a long way to go.

    The Dalles area is pretty enough that it makes me wonder why you would want to drive fast through it. Now, the area around Burns does suck though, scenery wise. I would want to drive 85 through that area :lol:
