Welcome to Poverty With A View
Commentary, opinions pulled from the local daily fish wrapper, other sources from around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. With additional commentary from yours truly, one who has the affliction known hereabouts as 'permagrump', PatriotUSA.
Call this an opinion from the RIGHT side of the Cascades.
Where great jobs are scarce but taxes and government overreach, are high.
Where to begin? This is really a tough choice for me as there are so many stupid, liberal, progressive
events, moments to choose from here in the isolated hinterlands of Central Pooregon.
Understand that 'isolated' is just that. Central Oregon is only accessible by three main highways and if you are rich, by air travel. In winter we can be cut off by the occasional nasty winter weather, which is MY favorite time of year. No flatlanders or out of staters to make me grumpier than normal.
Last night's post about how myself and I am sure, many others have been attacked by the idiots that haunt the liberal, progressive statist side of politics, socially, economically, and maybe the worst of them all, environmentally.
These oh so politically correct, culturally enriched, diversified, mutliculturalized slaggards have no qualms about attacking us true conservatives personally at work, in a parking lot, on our own property, in our cars and this is encouraged by the first muslim, illegal alien potus.
Case in point is right here:
Business Owner Assaulted For Posting Anti-Obama SignIt’s come to this…
Business owner assaulted after posting anti-Obama sign.
Victoria Taft reported, via Orbusmax:
Ever since President Obama said to small business America that they “didn’t do that” and “you didn’t build that,” Kevin “The Geek” Kerwin has been on the warpath at his Lake Oswego, Oregon computer fix it shop.
Kerwin came to Oregon to get a fresh start after being wiped out by Hurricane Katrina .
He started his business with the money he had in his pocket.
Kevin “The Geek” got an interesting customer yesterday at his Lake Oswego based business. A Dunthorpe doyenne entered his store, began berating the businessman for his anti Obama sign, and when he insisted he wouldn’t take it down, slapped him. He threatened to call the cops but she left and then shuffled across the street and lost herself in the stores and parking lot.
Hat tip: BC from I'm 41.
Disgusting? Absolutely but when you have a governor like we do here in POORegon, this is what one can expect from the leftards who live the perfect lives and love Chicago Jesus.
How stupid are the people of POORegon? Stupid, incredibly stupid. The governor (not my governor)John 'taxhaber' Kitzhaber has been elected not one, two but THREE times. You think people would have learned from the damages he left after two terms but no, we are stuck with this liberal, baby killing bastard for a third term. This state has been devastated by liberal government policies for far too long. Thousands of jobs have been lost, companies taxed into near obilivion and the population buried unde a regressive, progressive government that knows what is 'best' for us.
Case in point two:
OR Gov. Grants Clemency To Murderer, But Not To Man Collecting Rainwater
CNS News: Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber won’t even discuss clemency for a man convicted of collecting rainwater, yet he’s forcing a reprieve on a convicted murderer – who wants to be executed.
Democrat Gov. Kitzhaber has granted a reprieve “for the duration of my service as governor” to Gary D. Haugen, who has twice been convicted of aggravated murder. Haugen – who wants to be executed - was first convicted of killing the mother of his girlfriend and later was found guilty of murdering a fellow inmate.
Meanwhile, Gov. Kitzhaber’s office won’t even discuss the possibility of granting any form of clemency to Gary Harrington, who is scheduled to begin serving a 30 day jail term this week – for collecting rainwater his own property.
Mr. Harrington was sentenced July 25 in Jackson County Circuit Court to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines for violating Oregon state laws that say all water is publically owned--making the 3 reservoirs on his property used to house rainwater and snow runoff illegal.
CNSNews.com has repeatedly contacted the governor’s office via phone and email to ask if the governor has any intention of pardoning Harrington or commuting his sentence. But the governor's office has not responded to any of those inquiries.
And, while Harrington is scheduled to begin serving his jail sentence on Wednesday despite appealing his conviction, Haugen has waived his available appeals regarding his sentence.
Haugen has even filed a lawsuit against Gov. Kitzhaber seeking judicial intervention to invalidate the reprieve and allow the state to execute him. Haugen claims that state law allows him to refuse the reprieve.
In his report to the Oregon Legislative Assembly, Gov. Kitzhaber acknowledges that Hauber has waived his right to appeal his death sentence. But, the governor continues to fight Hauber's lawsuit, insisting he does not need Hauber's permission to grant the reprieve.
The judge hearing Haugen’s complaint against the governor is asking for additional input before deciding whether or not to grant Haugen’s request to be executed.
Giving clemency to a man who killed two people yet not to a man that collected rainwater on his property? Liberalism is truly a mental disorder.

This next article should NOT be a surprise to anyone who knows about Portland, the perverted,
Mayor Adams is guilty of direct cooperation and sympathetic support of the occupy portland movement of freaks, fags, lesbians, dykes, dirty smelly hippies, hipsters, communist seiu union activists and those who have drank way too much kool aid, those who are brainwashed beyond all hope and change. Adams is also the Police Commissioner. No conflict of interest there and only the left would stoop to this kind of thuggery.
Mayor Adams let the occuppiers squat and break the law for weeks before he decided to remove the filth and villainythat was and is the occupy Portland movement. PatriotUSA
If you needed any more more proof of the collusion of the left, case in point three:
Police told to not arrest Occupy Portland protesters by feds
Records from the Homeland Security Department reveal that the scandal-ridden General Services Administration, with the authorization of President Barack Obama's White House, directed law enforcement officers to “stand down” and not arrest “Occupy Portland” protesters who were violating the law, according to a report by Fox News Channel's Steve Doocy Wednesday morning.
Officials at Judicial Watch reported that one November 6, 2011, e-mail exchange between DHS/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich and GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck (who has since been terminated from employment) is specifically related to Occupy Portland protests taking place on federal property in Portland:
I am sorry to be emailing you on a Sunday night, but wanted to let you know our Press Shop has received a couple of calls from Portland media outlets about a group of 11 protesters who again set up camp at Terry Shrunk Plaza in Portland last night. They have chained themselves to a large drum filled with concrete. GSA controls the permits and has asked FPS [Federal Protective Services] not to enforce the curfew at park and the prohibition on overnight encampments. Reporters have asked if we will be arresting the protesters as FPS did last week.
Our FPS Commander in Portland says they are standing down and following GSA’s request to only intervene if there is a threat to public safety.
Caitlin: yes, that is our position; it’s been vetted with our Administrator and Michael Robertson, our chief of staff, and we have communicated with the WH [White House], which has afforded us the discretion to fashion our approach to Occupy issues…The arrests last week were carried out despite our request that the protesters be allowed to remain and to camp overnight…
Occupy Portland is part of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which has been beset with accusations of “crimes and dangerous behavior” during its protests in New York City.
In fact, left-wing attorney's are suing the New York Police Department for civil rights violations, according to a Law Enforcement Examiner report.
According to the Oregonian, the week before the email exchange, on October 30, 2011: “Twenty-five Occupy Portland demonstrators were arrested…after refusing to leave Jamison Square. The arrests capped an intense hours-long standoff between police and dozens of protesters who refused to leave the Pearl District park after it was declared closed at midnight. Officers, some in riot gear and others on horses, faced off with protesters who remained in the square, despite being ordered to leave.” The protestors were reportedly arrested on accusations of “trespassing, interfering with a police officer and disorderly conduct for the noise complaints from neighbors.”
Robert Peck was at the center of a scandal involving the GSA in 2010, where the agency spent $823,000 on a lavish Las Vegas “training conference” that featured a clown, a mind reader and a $31,208 reception. Peck was fired as a result of the incident, according to Judicial Watch.
Peck, who has donated thousands of dollars to Democrat candidates, including Barack Obama, was previously implicated in an unrelated GSA scandal for reportedly brokering a controversial lease deal for a Democratic donor and friend of former Vice President Al Gore, according to Mark Tapscott of the Washington Examiner.
“In Peck’s first go-round at GSA, controversy was sparked when it was learned that excessively high rent was being paid by the FCC to the owner of a building who also happened to be a Democratic donor. Peck was the official who made the deal possible,” Tapscott wrote.
“We now have a new GSA scandal – one that involves the Obama White House,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These documents clearly show that federal agencies colluded with the Obama White House to allow the Occupy Wall Street protestors to violate the law with impunity. These documents tell us that the GSA and DHS can’t be relied upon to protect federal workers or property.”
