Any Oregon fags on tonight? What are guys smoking tonight? I know you're high
I have a question. If I have spent most of my life in Oregon and resent my Califagness, do I become an Oregonfag? Like how this shithead >>668841016 is now a Califag? Someone was telling me you never stop being a transplant.
Did you move here as a kid, pre-teen? If so, I believe you can avoid transplant status as long as you don't display any califaginess. After that, you're probably going to be a transplant forever. The only exception that I know of is if you traveled to Oregon as a hobo or serious drug addict (like, ODed upon entering the state). Then you were already an honorary Oregonian anyway.
Do you say, "hella," do you drive to 7-11 even when it's two blocks away? That shit will inform anyone that you're not from here. It sounds like it's possible that you might not be a transplant.
I said, "hella" and "bomb" when I first came here. No, I don't go to 7-11. I don't really go anywhere. I do live close to a Freddy's and drive, so I don't have to carry a bunch of groceries. Does that count?
Did you say hella a year after you moved?
>Yes, then you are a transplant
>No, probably fine
>I don't really go anywhere
Sounds like more Oregonians I know...
>I do live close to a Freddy's and drive
Everyone drives when they need a buttload of groceries. Do you drive even when you need one thing? (I know that's a contradiction with Freddy's, treat it as a hypothetical situation). Do you bring your own bags? A Califag would be too lazy to bring their own bag, but not all Oregonfags bring em either.
So, I am or am not a transplant? Keep in mind I was 11 and don't say that shit now. If I need one thing I don't really go, or I wait until I drive home from work. Like I said, I don't go anywhere. Bring your own bags isn't really a thing in my area.
I'm a California transplant and I hate how historically poor Oregon is. I don't work in the state I just pay a shit load of taxes to live here. Most native Oregonians are total douche bag faggots
Sheeeet nigga, if all Californians went home this place would be more of a fucking toilet than it already is. Nobody would be here to pay your native Oregonian welfare and then how the fuck would you afford that double wide trailer, you white trash mother fucker?
If all the Californians left, all the folks on welfare would go away, making things better. As to the double wide thing, sorry but I've actually got a 3br 2ba house and not a trailer... unlike your crack family back in Mexifornia. You gotta stop projecting your own living conditions on others... oh, wait... Californians can't accept blame for anything. Get your head out of your ass and get the hell out of my state.
Fuck, this is why California should be fenced off and nuked. We've got to stop the export of idiots from there.
Anyone else see the turkeys running around recently?
I'm currently living in the Midwestern United states . I want to move to Oregon in the next two years. Bend seemed the most affordable and appealing place to live. Any tips or things I should be aware of that might get me in trouble or places to avoid like bad neighborhoods? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Portland fag reporting in
>uplift 9 lb hammer
>uplift blue magoo
What are my /b/ros' favorite shops?
Im gonna go out on a limb and guess he means so we know who the fek anon is talking about, anon.. You know educational purposes and such
Oregon born and raised here dabbing it up in Sutherlin. Originally from a tiny coastal sinkhole called Brookings. We are the best of the west though. Fuck California and Washington. I've been to and lived in both and always came back to Oregon.
This is the chick I'm talking about. Someone said she actually did porn which peaked my interest
Portland is a bunch of fags, and complains when anyone moves into Portland. The rest of the state couldn't give two shits about your "status". If you spend more time in one place and consider it "home", that's where you are.
Oregonfag that moved up in 95 as a teen from Cali. Definitely not a Califag anymore, that state has absolutely gone to shit since I left.
tl;dr only Portlandfags care about "transplants", even though most of them now are children of prior transplants.
Acting like the rest of the country hasn't decided to hop that same bandwagon.
Get the fuck over it. Portland had a huge tech boom, where the fuck did you think all of them would have come from? The fucking bayou?
Portland fag checking them trips and confirming Portland is obnoxious with these matters.
It's gonna crash....they are way overbuilding . It's absurd. I predict 2008 to happen again in about a year . Not to mention all the homeless make it more and more undesirable
Hah, didn't even realize I had trips.
I can't wait to GTFO Portland, personally. Yea, 20 years ago the place was cheap to live in, back when it was a grimy as fuck inner city all over the place, now people bitch that "gentrification" ruined all their amazing shitty housing situations.
Portland fucked itself with it's bullshit zoning and property laws, preventing any real estate from being built in any meaningful way until someone else got in office and did something about it.
Fucking millennials have no goddamn clue how easy they have it in this city now, just as long as they can afford it.
Portland has a > 5% vacancy rate. They've cleared the way for 11 new high rises in downtown over the next few years to combat this.
If anything, it's going to help the outer cities by allowing way more people to move into the city where their jobs are, and where they can afford it.
Portland won't hit 2008 again unless the entire country crashes (again), the market is booming, not busting.
Collegefag, I can't even afford the $600+ utilities on campus at PSU for a studio there.
I'm hoping housing balances out by the time I'm done. Got another year at PSU and I've already capped my loans, so I gotta find work at some point anyway.
The people I know don't care about transplants, they only despise the Californians that move here. They come in and buy up houses with cash, for $100k over the asking price. It has inflated the housing market, increased taxes, lowered availability... and Californians are assholes that no one wants to live near. They are changing the work culture of tech companies. They water their lawns in summer like fucking idiots.
Portland is a lot nicer than it used to be, for sure, but the recent influx of Californians brings nothing to the city. Fuck them, they can go home. It's raining again in CA.
Chill out. Every other city in the country doesn't bitch about Californians migrating in but for some reason PDX decides to just because It's more recent. In 10 years it won't matter. Cities grow
Amen. Got a friend and his wee who keep putting bids on houses , they make around 150k a year combined very normal. Every house bought for cash at least 30k over asking price it's insane
Las Vegas and Phoenix complain, because they actually got Californians. And look what Californians did to both of those shitholes... the point is, no one here likes Californians. They fucked up their state, they fucked up NV and AZ, and now that Oregon is somehow trendy, they're fucking shit up here.
Shaaaaaaaaaame! Ha I moved here 6 years ago from San Francisco. Let the hate shower upon us both.
>Portland is a lot nicer than it used to be, for sure, but the recent influx of Californians brings nothing to the city. Fuck them, they can go home. It's raining again in CA.
Brings nothing to the city except money, something Portland has been completely unable to do on it's own in 10 of the 20 years I've lived here.
I've had less problems with 90% of my fellow transplants than I have most natives, of which many are too young to realize how fucked this city was in the 80's-90's. Go talk to your parents about how Portland was as far as transportation and walking down the streets at night. Especially the Pearl, Gresham, and North Portland.
And ya, they're going to change the culture of the tech companies. Protip: They made them. Without Silicone Valley, Portland startups wouldn't have had shit to work with. Investors just decided to move up here to be closer to the action. Portland had plenty of millionaires in the west hills anyway, it's not like development companies weren't already primed to fuck over housing costs.
Am I pissed that housing went up? Yes, but I'm also aware it was the city to blame for the "build up not out" policy, and keeping housing from being zoned until recently when they did something about the bullshit lack of quotas on affordable housing options. Fucking city only JUST finally passed that...wait for it.....LAST FALL.
Nobody to blame but the city government for lack of oversight on the expected growth spurt over the past 20 years.
Same place I've been for three years. Availability is shit, and every time I find a decent place, I get outbid in cash, $30-100k. I'm putting 30+% down, and I still don't stand a chance, even if I outbid them a bit... because they sold their McMansion in CA for $600k, and sellers would rather take a cash deal than wait for a mortgage to get approved.
Plenty of attractive floosies running around Portland now.. That's a plus
To be fair, Hillsuburrito doesn't really offer much to begin with.
I do happen to agree with you about the buttfucking hipsters though. They invade every fucking scene that exists here, and ultimately destroy it within a few years.
>Brings nothing to the city except money
Money that is inflating the entire economy. Housing prices are going up 10-15% a year, grocery prices have doubled in some areas... you get the point. What good does their money do? Not a goddamn bit of good.
I'm 35, I've been here most of my life. Like I said, it's nicer now. But it's not due to Californians. Those changes happened before the huge influx.
>they're going to change the culture of the tech companies
No thanks. If I wanted a CA work culture, I'd move to CA. The PNW has always had tech companies. And huge ones. Microsoft, Amazon. Intel is here now, and its culture is not CA culture. Fuck Silicon Valley, we have the Silicon Forest.
>keeping housing from being zoned until recently
It was a dumbshit move, for sure. Portland is not good at growing. And stupid decisions contribute to our issues. But we don't need or want the thousands of CA idiots that move here. All they do is fuck up every city they flock to.
>Nobody to blame but the city government
For the lack of planning, yes. but I still don't want a bunch of Californian neighbors. Or coworkers.
AZ and NV were certainly never my type of places. But Las Vegas and Phoenix saw huge amounts of Californians move, which fucked up their water supply (most of which CA was taking to begin with), their housing markets, and prices on everything. Californians are just terrible for local economies. I'd rather live in a cheap shithole than a horribly overpriced shithole.
Lived in SF area for a few years. Hated it. I make better money in Portland than I did in CA, it's a much more easygoing environment. I like going to work, people aren't conceited assholes who think work is their whole life.
In reality, the entire summation of your arguments can be rebutted by "tough shit". Major cities grow, and Portland has way the hell more to offer anyone than Salem and Eugene.
And all you folks up here in Portland seem to think everyone from California is some rich asshole that came from SF or LA. Fun fact: that's only the obvious ones who can currently afford downtown. Most that came up in the 90's were lower middle class people that just wanted out of Cali.
Only reason I ended up here in the first place was my mom following family. And I'm sure it'll bring a smile to your face to know out of the 8-10 of us that lived here from 93 on, only I remain.
So you're getting your wish, albeit much slower than you'd like.
>So you're getting your wish, albeit much slower than you'd like.
Every little bit helps, and if I can make Californians feel unwelcome, then I'm doing my part.
Realistically, though, if most of them came here, saw the place, liked it and decided that they would move here and adapt... that'd be fine. Most of our other transplants come here because they want to be part of Portland. But Californians don't. They want to make Portland into CA 4.0, just another shithole. And if your family came here and adapted, I'm sorry to lose them.
They want all of Oregon to be Commifornia 4.0.
Jesus, have you been to bend recently? Im pretty sure it has the highest density of Commofornians in the state, place is a total shithole
I dont feel like replying to every aingle post in here about it, but on Oregon, and Portland:
>most normal oregonians want to live mostly self sufficiently, with minimal amount of government involvement possible, including hunting
>most the hippies (until the last 10 years or so) wanted to live mostly aelf sufficiently, and with as little government envolvement as possible, just on average prefered more of a gardening approch to hunting
and all was good, until the rats started to flee the sinking ship that is cuckfornia, and spread the plauge they are carriers of to the states the fled to.
The Cuckfornians moved there a few years ago, it was the "new Aspen" and they flooded it, inflated everything, and drove most the people from bend out, this caused a massive collapse, bend was the #1 growing city in america, now its been the highest, or near the hughest unemployment rate cities in Oregon since the collapse, there are huge plots of land with housing communities, half finished, some in various stages of construction, that no one lives in, no one is working on, just citing out there a few years now.
this will happen to Portland, just they had the size to survive more then 16 month of californian pillaging.
This is her now... If it's the same girl, she dyes her hair red now
Theres always turkeys in the south of eugene, and west of downtown. They know its safe. Ive seen a whole group of them walking down the sidewalk of 6th around chambers area.
they're all over springfield also.
Too bad! ere's another lhana for a better face pic.
so whenever a major poece of construction takes place, a bid happens, and a company will pop up in CA overnight. Theae companies always underbid local companies, because they hire Illegals, felons, gang members, and othera who have a hard time getting work, and pay them well under minimum wage.
by the time an authority figures this out, the work is done and the company has vanished, but most the workers can't afford to move back, so a lot stay in the city the work was done in, and generally start sucking on the tit of welfare and unemployment.
She was moving to New York , if it's the same one I thought of
If cost of living rises more then average income (CoL has been shooting up in portland metro area) then it will lose the majority of the people, they will have to move to live, you cant run a mutli million dollar tech company without janitors, maintenance, security, and no one will work those jobs for less then living wages, as well all the small businesses are being pushed out.
it will collapse, it can just take more before that then Bend could, in the end Portland will be better for it, just hope that the commies move to Seattle or something.
this is also something Oregon does, i dont know why, or understand it fully, but every 7 years or so, the state offers huge tax breaks for companies to open shop here, the move in, jack up CoL, and pay almost no taxes, then after IIRC 3 years, they have to start paying taxes, at which point they close up shop and move to somewhere with better taxes for them.
so oregon has a boom, then vfalls worse then it was before, i have no idea why or how the legislature and Governors let/want this happen.
Same thing happened in most SF Bay cities in the 80s. They all survived, but their services (schools, roads, etc) went to shit. That might happen here if it keeps up. Bend grew way faster than Portland ever has or will, because it was so much smaller to begin with. I get the argument, it's just not likely going to end the same way.
Haha yeah, and just like all strippers she should be fucked to death and thrown into a dumpster!
Fucking Penza city here(from fucking russia)
Please guys, take me to Oregon
In Beaverton takin some dabs. Where you fags at?
Speak on your own behalf fag. Born and raised here and never leaving. Far from white trash too. Don't insinuate things about people you don't know anything about.
>oh he's smoking oil to be a cool kid
No fuck you. Been making it for 5 years before it was a fad and all these dumb cunts that don't know the first fucking thing about it. So you good sir, can go fuck your self and enjoy the rain. If you don't like the rain GTFO
I was speaking to more how you act, and less about smoking hash oil.
