Break-in And Shower Routine Could Have Got A Portland Hippy Shot

Portland is the city where young people go to retire, and apparently break into houses to shower:

A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police — afraid the homeowner may have a gun.

The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.

LOL only in Portland. Since I spent some time there last summer, I have been anxiously awating each new episode of Portlandia.

The dream of the 90’s is alive in Portland.

If you’re not already watching it, you can catch up on Portlandia at Amazon – HERE

Yep, Pacific NW is pretty liberal and libertarian at the same time. Lots of hippies, lots of guns too.

It’s journalistically irresponsible and bigoted for CNN to release a bigoted 911 recording without editing out the bigotry. In this news release, CNN has aired the recording of a 911 operator using the political label, “Hispanic,” as a racial category that could be distinguished from white, black, or Asian. Such a distinction is factually impossible and bigoted. In addition, by airing (to the world) the bigoted conclusions of the 911 operator, CNN News is promoting and proliferating the bigoted concept that the political label “Hispanic” is, in some way, a racial or ethnic category distinguishable from white, black, or Asian. If one has learned anything from the latest 2010 Census one has learned this: the word “Hispanic,” including the political use of the word, does not in any way equate to race or the physical description of individuals. The premise in this news piece is clear: In the United States, if one is describe as “Hispanic” then one must have the same biological features and physical characteristics as everyone else described as “Hispanic”. Latin Americans are as diverse as non Latin Americans, and it is impossible to describe them as having similar features or physical characteristics. It’s striking that all over the United States, the police don’t seem to be messing with the meaning of the word “Anglo”. So why are the police messing with the word “Hispanic?” Both labels– “Anglo” and “Hispanic” –have the same historical meaning– white European– and both words represent European countries with a proud history of accomplishments. So why then is ABC respecting “Anglo” America while at the same time opportunistically proliferating and encouraging the stereotyping of the meaning of the word “Hispanic”?
