Re: “Oregon State Governor

I get the Source methodology on endorsing Kate and you were very fair in your portrayal of Knute (maybe by necessity since he's a local). But I am disappointed that you were so dismissive of Patrick Starnes. No, he won't win but Starnes is carrying an important message in this most expensive all time Governor's race. Oregon has ZERO campaign limits and only Starnes is talking about that. None of our big problems get solved, mostly due to this one fact. We need to send a message to Salem and PS is that messenger. He also happens to be a pretty great guy with other interesting ideas. Too bad he was shut out of two of the three debates - another point The Source might have addressed. Deschutes County is a stronghold for the Independent Party of Oregon and non-affiliated voters. The Source should be a champion of democracy for all and not just the wealthy, rigged establishment parties.

Re: “Bend Scores Low in LGBTQ Equality

Hi Scout, No one is asking for special treatment or extras as you put it. There is a reason we need anti discriminatory laws. Gays and other minorities have historically and even very recently faced hate and bigotry on such a scale it boggles the human mind. It must be nice to have such luxurious thinking as you. Let me guess, straight, heterosexual, white male. It is not us who have separated anyone out, it is you and people that think like you. Ive been around for quite some time. Countless friends that I know who were denied housing, health care and even been stabbed, shot and bashed. Just for being themselves. People like you will never get it, you are more dangerous than any nazi or white supremacist or any hate group. Those groups are outright about what they believe. You know better but choose to guise it under the belief (falsely) that we want "special" rights and are "separating" ourselves. Any gay person I know that saw your comment most certainly would not consider you a "friend".

I think that I have a unique perspective on the future of bend .

I think that bend can lead the state , nation and world on the two most important issues of this millennium .

fiscal transparency in government and equal rights .

to learn more about these ideas please visit my web site , globalinternetgovernment.com .

I also have lots of good ideas for the local issues that I detail in the two lists below . both lists are the same . the first list is the short version , the second list is an expanded version of the first list .



I am a 49 years old , never married , not kids . I am a libertarian which means that I am fiscally conservative and socially liberal . I am a buddhist , an atheist and an agnostic . I have lived in bend for over a decade . I have lived in oregon for the entire millennium . I was born and raised in santa cruz , california .

.







1 - I would , as mayor , push for a 10 year phase out plan to ban all motorized vehicles from downtown .

the area would be wall street and bond street from franklin to greenwood . 3 blocks . in 2020 , vehicles would only be allowed downtown on the weekends and from midnight to 6 am on the other days . in 2022 , vehicles would only be allowed downtown from midnight to 6am on all days . in 2024 , vehicles would only be allowed downtown from 2am to 5am all days . in 2026 vehicles would only be allowed downtown on weekends from 2am to 5am . in 2028 vehi .cles would only be allowed downtown for emergencies . in 2030 , no vehicles would be allowed downtown unless of fire or other disasters . I would only do this if most of the buisness owners downtown wanted to do this .



2 - I think that anything that can be made a park within a 20 mile radius of pilot butte should be made a park immediately . we need to do this now while we still can . we need to protect our way of life and keep bend bend . we dont want bend to turn into portland . this is a big deal with me and we must preserve bend while we still can because in a decade we wont be able to do this . big parks all over the place will help keep this town special and beautiful forever .



3 - neff road points to prineville like a giant neon sign . this is where bend will grow forever and there is no stopping it . we must focus our infrastructure in this direction . the future of bend is east and we must imbrace this fact and take the steps to continue this .



4 - I support an annual gay pride parade in bend and also a gay rodeo . Im not gay . Im straight . and I dont really know what a gay rodeo is but Im sure it will be lots of fun . the gay rodeo will be held in prineville or la pine or sisters a week after they have their rodeo . if this does not happen then thats ok but I will push for it as mayor because I think its a great idea with lots of room for people to just do whatever they want and have a great time , like the oregon country fair .



5 - I think that we should legalize the production and sale and use of magic psylocibin mushrooms and treat it just like we treat the legal pot issue and regulate it like that . magic mushroom are easy to grow and in my opinion , are good stuff for most of the people who choose to do it responsibly .



6 - I think that the city government of bend does a fantastic job of fiscal transparency . as mayor I will make sure that every financial transaction that the city of bend makes is put online publicly and immediately . this will show the way for the entire state to follow suit . this will show the way for then entire nation to do the same . this will be the template for the whole world to aspire to . this is all about freedom . use it or lose it .



7 - as mayor , I will make sure that every female has the right to full reproductive rights . this means that every female in bend has total and free access to all forms of birth control and birth control education , including abortion . this to will lead the world on this critical issue . this is the bedrock of equality and freedom for all people on earth . this is the future . this is how we are going to save the environment . by creating a permanent and sustained decline in the human population . this has been my main issue that I have been fighting for my whole life and the people of bend can truly save our environment and our species by attacking this issue head on on a global scale . this is a great chance for the people of bend to be on the cutting edge of history and truly be the voice for a new world of sustainability , equality , common sense , reason , and all that good stuff .



8 - I would like to use eminate domain to put 2 to 4 parking garages on both sides of the parkway between greenwood and franklin .



9 - I would like to cut down that pondo thats about to fall on the library parking lot downtown . I would like to ban trapping . I would like to put lights on the wave at colorado bridge for night surfing .

Re: “Bend Scores Low in LGBTQ Equality

They should be treated like the rest of the humans in Bend. Theyre just people no special treatment no extras. This is the problem with America! Everyone singles their groups out..make me special..I deserve extra..actually no no ya dont! You wanna be included then stop excluding yourself to your own. Just be a human. I have gay friends and I let them know when theyre becoming too extra! Stop it. No one likes it. No one deserves more than the next human. Stop separating yourselves out. Its not right.

Re: “Camping at Juniper Ridge

You can't compare pet homelessness issues to people homelessness issues. Pets can't choose their lifestyle, the homes they have. They are totally at the mercy of humans as to whether they live a quality, loved life or a painful, miserable existence or death. There is no comparison between people and animals.

It is our responsibility as humans to give all humans the opportunity to live the life that they chose to live. Options need to be available to have access to a safe, secure, and healthy environment, hopefully with the ultimate goal to transition into permanent housing. I am not an expert on homelessness and do not claim to have the knowledge or back ground necessary to fully understand this difficult issue, but I am a caring, compassionate human that believes that there are basic needs that are required to live with dignity. I agree with the article - a short term option would be to provide portable toilets and dumpsters to at least provide a sanitary area and protect the environment. A permanent barrier between the neighborhoods affected and the homeless camps should be a given, and should have been completed by now. This is an extremely important issue that needs to be addressed.

Re: “Camping at Juniper Ridge

To some extent what Chief Porter stated is true. However, how many dogs and cats are euthanized every single year after staying for extended periods of time in animal shelters in this country? I don't believe that the comparison is as accurate as the article suggests.

As with all things BMPR, Don Horton does not care if the final product works or not, does not care it if is legal or not before starting the project spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on it, does not care what the people using the actual facility want and need, only that it costs a lot of money, that Bend Parks and Rec. can get featured in some tourists magazine for there so called innovation and he can keep the local very rich happy. If only there were trophies, I am sure Don would would issue himself a few to put on the mantel of his taxpayer funded castle on the river.

Re: “So Metal

Hey Source, very cool of you to write about these talented guys. We on KPOV's Bend Roots Revival broadcast team had the pleasure of having Gravewitch appear on one of the two stages we were broadcasting last year. We became solid fans. We even have the t-shirts to prove it. I've never bought a band t-shirt in my life but after hearing Chris and Andrew's amazingly-good act, well, had to get one. We'll be back this year, broadcasting from the same spot: between the El Sancho Stage and the Bucha Buena Stage, and we had hopes that Gravewitch would again be one of the artists we'd be sending out over the airwaves (and streamwaves). We are saddened to learn that they'll be over yonder on the Black Butte Porter Stage, out of earshot. We're wearing the shirts anyway. Have a good set, Gravewitch!

Re: “Bike Park Improvements Hit Snag

I invite others to pull up google maps and take a look at the location of the 7-10 houses adjacent to the park. As a homeowner, I fully understand protecting your home investment, and taking interest in things happening adjacent to your property, and the article doesn't talk a lot about the level of pushback from the neighbors. However, I find it ridiculous there would be any actual complaining about a bike park given the space. Would they rather the land have ended up a subdivision? I'm sure it is nice to have the city/county provide you with a nice buffer of undeveloped land behind yours. Consequently, why not count your blessings that the land isn't a subdivision, but instead is a nice park that some people would like to ride bikes in. Surely a subdivision of 50-60 houses would have created a lot more noise and light pollution then some bike riders and R/C enthusiasts. I'd be happy the land is going to be permanently utilized for recreation if I were them.
