One night, I was sitting by the Pioneer Courthouse watching Antifa battle with police, when a man pushing a cart walked by. His face was completely painted green. This was about midnight, ...

Dispatch 16: Return to America: History is Today

Busy here in Portland. I've been moving back and forth between Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington. Learning much talking with everyone under the sky.

Play with chainsaws...better go to chainsaw school. But that is not the point of bringing this up: It appears that many people are stocking ...
