Some things to think about for next year:
Minimum wage earners just received an undeserved raise. If your skills or labor were more valuable you wouldn't need the government to force your employer to pay you more.
The book "Mama voted for Obama" has been released and will probably be coming to
In the "our homeless are better than your homeless" category; Dignity Village has release a Tent Cities Toolkit which is an "organizing tool focused on issues of homelessness and the role of grassroots, democratic tent cities as a necessary step to resolving homelessness."
This involves "connecting housed and unhoused activists worldwide into a cohesive political force for effective social change."
Anyone who read that without laughing out loud has no sense of humor.
In the "I just can't belive it category" we feature... Dignity Village again!
"Everyone has felt the high gas prices , the high cost of food, and the many job lay off's in the community. Our efforts for being self efficient to pay our bills over the past 9 months have fallen short ."
So wait, a bunch of bums who are mooching off the Portland taxpayers have fallen short at being self sufficient? I think I need to lay down.
But most important, remember that if you have something that you neighbor (possibly your homeless neighbor) doesn't have, it's time to "spread it around."
