Those wacky Oregonians are at it again.  The residents of Silverton Oregon have elected a trans-gender mayor.  (S)he could have her own sex scandel all by her/himself!

To complete the trifecta, we learn of an Oregon couple who thought their faith would heal their son of a urinary tract infection.  Despite their prayers (which had already been answered in the form of  medical advancment) their 16-year-old son died.

Thankfully, the State of Oregon will hold this couple accountable for the death of their son.

The article also states that this 16-year-old’s cousin died 4 months earlier because her parent’s faith proved fruitless in her battle against pneumonia.

Of all 50 states, Oregon is the only state that sanctions the right of people to kill themselves.  The state is so cavalier about this law that they practically encourage people to go ahead and kick the bucket as soon as possible.

One resident got a rude awakening during the course of trying to procure a drug for her lung cancer.  This article states,  

Barbara Wagner … was turned down by the state’s Oregon Health Plan for a new drug called Tarceva. In a letter sent by a company that administers one of the state’s insurance plans, Wagner was informed of the “physician aid in dying” option that could include lethal prescriptions as well as visits to doctors required to obtain the drugs.
“I was absolutely hurt that somebody could think that way,” said Wagner. “They won’t pay for me to live but they will pay for me to die.”

Once state officials found out about this incident, they quickly maneuvered to cover up their motives and instructed the officiators of the insurance to not send such letters.

Oregon should change their motto from “The Union” to “The Place to Die”

This is a tragic story.  An Oregon man was working on his truck when it suddenly lunged and pinned him underneath.  The truck refused to get off the man.  The man passed out and then expired.

Oregon needs to do something about rogue trucks who kill their owners.

Another article about the man who was killed by his truck.

“Earth Friend Gen” can ride and skate around Portland buck naked and it’s not against the law.

According to Cathe Kent, from the Portland Police Bureau, because Earth Friend Gen is not doing this in an attempt to arouse anyone, the act is perfectly legal. 

Wow.

That is Oregon.

Oregon doctors are now diagnosing 71-year-old grandfathers as being pregnant.

Hundreds of paragliders visit Grouse Mountain every single day.  Day after day, these hundreds turn into thousands.  Of all these paragliding expeditions, few if any get stuck in trees.   Yet of all these thousands of paragliders, it takes an Oregonian to get stuck in a tree.

The paraglider was trying to land in Cleveland Park, but he noticed that his approach was a little bit low. As he tried to guide himself in the right direction, he noticed that he was heading towards some power lines.
“He decided his best option was to go into the trees rather than to go into the lines,” Cairns said.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the State of Oregon pratically covered with trees?  You’d think an Oregonian would know how to climb as well as dismount from a tree … right?

I’m sure the state revoked his citizenship when he came back from Vancouver.
