    Good thing my dog died. I use to chase him a lot as he imitated being an animal, and wouldn’t seem to drop the ball when I commanded him to.

    It’s ok for a wild animal to chase us humans. In fact, the state encourages you to replicate the natural state of things where you get eaten by a grizzly, wolf pact, or Cougar. Call it animal retribution.

    Class warfare. It’s not just for humans anymore.

      So just how many Grizzly bears and wolf packs are there in Oregon?

      And… how many Grizzly bears, wolf packs, and cougars are given as prizes? I can’t imagine very many.

    Apart from daylight time, which I would like to see go away, the rest is all nonsense and just another money grab from government.

    I can count on two hands the amount of times I have seen an electric car using the charging stations at Tigard Fred Meyer. I park my Suburban in them…that’s how I roll….

      Ahhh! No respect for the private property of others.

        If there’s going to be discrimination than no. They took away parking for the handicapped, to put in spots that no one uses. Someone might as well use them, and there’s still spots open.

    Daylight “savings” is such a stupid, idiotic, senseless fool’s errand. It needs to go. What a bunch of stupid morons.

    • Logan’s Runhaber

      Indeed archaic, seems Carousel eligible.

    I support any bill to get rid of daylight savings time.
