    Rose festival, "Fleet week"

    Since the very beginning of the Rose Festival back in 1907, visiting ships and other fleet-related elements (like submarines) have been making their way to Portland’s waterfront.annual event,.. The Portland Rose Festival is extremely fortunate to be one of a few U.S. Ports of Call for a courtesy visit from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and Royal Canadian Navy.

    Moe might be one flew over the kiki's nest but I'm surprised that in The People's Republic of Portland they are not booing the American military.

    Unruffle your feathers Duck. You are right I don't know much about Oregon and maybe I did "fly over kiki's nest" there Mr Bengal. What I do know however is how liberal totalitarian democrat policies screw over their citizens and how they are using fraudulent man made global warming lies to tax the crap out of the good citizens of Oregon and they don't freaking like it.

    Face it buddy your beautiful state is getting Californicated by an overbearing liberal deceitful governor and supported by her liberal leftist cronies in the Oregon capital. This has nothing to do with the fine people of Oregon but the assholes and the assholes who elected this bunch.

    Oregon GOP militia tweet draws response from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, others
    https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/2019/06/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-mocks-oregon-gop-we-can-help-you-find-a-therapist.html

    As Oregon Senate Republicans continued to boycott the Legislature Sunday in an attempt to block a vote on House Bill 2020, a climate change bill, things got testy on Twitter.

    The dust up started on Saturday evening when the official Twitter account of the Oregon GOP tweeted out a picture of protesters at the capitol with the caption, “Heavily armed militia lays siege to Oregon’s Capitol as Senate Democrats cower in fear.”

    The joke Oregon GOP appeared to be going for was that the Oregon Democrats were scared of peacefully protesting Oregonians, after party leaders canceled plans to hold a session Saturday. That cancelation came after several groups said they would protest in support of the Republicans

    There was at least one problem with the tweet, however. While the photo was of a rally against HB 2020, it appears it was from Wednesday, before the walkout began.
