Portland Has a New Blog – Portland Gentrification

There’s a new blog in town that covers the effects of gentrification in and around Portland.

It’s a bit rabid and in the author’s (who wishes to remain anonymous) own words “we're/I'm intending to keep a very pissed off blog with a few laughs thrown in, for everyone who writes a rent check every month and is starting to feel like their f@$king home town wants to kick them the f@$k out.” There is definitely passion behind this blog.

It’s worth checking out, but obviously the language might offend some.

Oh..puke. One of those that rages about the unfairness of a single mom with six kids being unable to afford a penthouse. Let's just redistribute to make everything fair...

Socialists. Gotta roll your eyes at em.

Yeah, better to bail out the comfortable middle and upper classes who bought houses they couldn't afford and now bleat for someone to lower their payments and principal.

"I paid too much! Make my payment go down!"

So Bernanke tells the banks to eat the loss and Congress offers up the Treasury to help them stay in their granite counter tops.

yamyam, you'll mess up your troll if you say the middle class is comfortable. It's the upper class. UPPER.

They delete any posts that don't agree with them completely. Odd how the leftists are always more fascist about content control.

that's a shame. for the record i have not deleted any posts, other than test posts. i will only delete posts for language or rudeness, which hasn't happened yet.

On Portland Gentrification we, this far, have only felt obliged to remove a single triply-posted inflammatory "welfare mom" remark about people with "six kids."

Legitimate comments expressing disagreement are kept in place, ideally to be responded to by me or other commenters. In future, yes, I expect to remove from view the kind of simpleminded insults cribbed from Rush Limbaugh of which "anonymous" at the top provides such an excellent example.
Thanks to RE Outsider blog for linking!
