It looks like the Starlight Parade part of the Portland Rose Fesitval is this year going to be rained on...Saturday night. Good thing it will be televised. You'd be surprised though...on an chair with an blanket around you and an Golf Umberella above.. it times can be not to bad, hot coffee and voodoo donuts....kind of chummy in ways. Will see how much rain they expect.
I just saw an map of the USA in which it says that most Americans can no longer support living in an two bedroom appartment if earning the minium wage. It takes about 88 hours an week to do so...which means it forces another person into living with you...and you can see why the low income are struggling so much these days. I thought we would see an lot of protestors this summer, but I guess the police pretty well brutally molested them enough last summer with pepper spray... that they have not returned....I agree..they didn't need to do things in the Park, they should of rented an empty warehouse across the bridge to stay there and marched in an out of the downtown core area, but they had no money...but I don't really see them at all any more...I guess their strike for freedom isn't. Our half Hitler society quietly moves on, as they say...with no freedom to voice things that are wrong. Maybe because no one really has any solutions? They have been showing recently single mothers breaking into abandoned homes and living in them for lack of an place to raise thier kids. They are barely getting money to feed them otherwise...many have no jobs also. Good thing summer is here...if the weather ever straightens up that is. Well, what can I get into today?...hum. Have an good day everyone!
