Review of Portland, Oregon

Where’s this hand basket headed?
Star Rating - 1/5/2021
Born and bred here, and have lived many other places as well... Truth be told, Portland has gone to hell. Drugs, gangs, shootings, violent crimes taking over the greater PDX area. Homelessness is destroying neighborhoods (not genuinely dislocated people, but those who move to PDX to take advantage of the perks here). Anarchy is tolerated, destroying businesses and our downtown. I’ve had liberals say to me, “I’m a liberal, but this place has gotten TOO DAMN LIBERAL! It’s not working anymore!” They’re right ~ Portland is broken. In addition to these, it’s gotten REALLY expensive to live here ~ especially housing. Lockdowns may affect that as more small businesses go out and people can’t pay their mortgage. So sad...
