RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
At first the list looks like allot but upon further reading, it appears that there is only outdoor sports here. Just another sports jock import? Portland is rather much deeper in its intrinsic arts and culture than another Vale Colorado Ski resort or California Surf beach. Note the other items in this persons list. Christmas celebrating? God fearing? SPAM hating? These say nothing about a city that is the King of Role Model to city planners across the nation for decades. Unfortunately they cannot import the Oregon geography to their states. The cleanest ecology in the continent for over 40 years. Lets get to the real reasons that locals born and raised here [have stayed here.] We would be blind to leave Portland and say find the same in Denver several thousands miles from the Pacific ocean. Or other top rated cities I could never understand- like Nashville Tennessee? I won't even go to travel into the southern US after stories I have heard from those who once lived there- They are now permanently here in Portland. Texas anyone??? It is obvious to all of us native Portland Oregonians, that we have so many attributes beyond the rest of the nation, otherwise we wouldn't be talking about this today. Why are they coming here,[knowing they do not need work? It says something that no other place can even dream of. There is a reason they are keeping the jobs down- This controls the sprawl from those who do not belong here. But then we have the second largest homeless population in the nation after LA. And we feed them all! [that is an inside secret that only the homeless know.] Let those other states call us liberal but we are more humane than other places too.
