- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Oregon voters have spoken and now even more hosts in this increasingly parasitic state called Oregon will personallly veto the bloodfeast with their feet by moving to Washington (or to Nevada or Texas or Florida or Wyoming). Even if you have not yet been tarred and taxed at 11% as "rich", when you do retire and have to rely on some investment income, will you have the luxury of staying in Oregon and paying the 9% "cool tax" for the priviledge of riding in the rolling homeless shelter called MAX and having "gentlemen" like Sam Adams and David Wu for political leaders? No doubt, many PERS retirees are privately snickering as they flee the Oregon ship that continues sinking under their weight after they leave. Even if Oregonians stop being fleeced out of the tidal surge of tax dollars to PERS (and to union sponsored politicians), Oregon's progressive tax policies (highest personal income tax in America, and no sales tax) still have the effect of attracting needy people from other states while repelling the wealth needed to sustain the poor arrivals. Oregon is so progressive, yet so unsustainable.
