Going to someone elses home-town and calling the people there crackheads may have something to do with it

It's probably more related to their intense need for correct grammatical structure and spelling, rather than valley kooks interloping on the left hander.

Those crack heads are fierce when it comes to grammatical structure and spelling.

Not unlike some of the crack heads around here.

Localism??? Laughable :D

Transplants pulled that shiit on me

I had to laugh

Five generations of my family have lived here

How long have you been around?

10-20 years :lol:

my family was here before the turn of the century

and by turn of the century, I don't mean the most recent one

more like, before the airplane had even been conceived

if it wasn't for my ancestors there probalbly wouldn't even be a WP

and by WP, I mean West Portland...

Come and Get it :wink: ( I.Y.K.W.I.M)

If you were here but left and came back at a later date can you still go back to the first period of time you were here or does your time reset when you return?

I don't know?

What says more about someone?

A person grew up somewhere, or they chose to live there???

Just because my family has history somewhere, doesn't mean I have any more right to be there...

But...

it's easier for them to leave and never come back if they aren't honest, nice, decent, respectful....whatever

Its a war against localism, how many times do i have to say this? We have a job and we're going to do it. I understand there's opposition and its not going to be easy but we are going to root out localism. We'll smoke them out of their holes. I might not be the popular thing to do, but the right thing to do isn't always the most popular. Its an object of strategery which will be accomplished but nature just needs to take its course.


It's funny, but I think your problem with locals may be the result of your priveleged(sp) upbringing. Maybe your so used to poor people serving you, you can't relate to locals as equals

For example:

would you like another drink, sir

can I get your coat for you, sir

Lap dance???

I mean, I doubt a local is going to carry your board for you, or

give up there parking spot so your friend can park his white Toyota Landcruiser with stickers on the back, so you can get in the water and catch more waves. Silly. :(

Take your turn. Maybe the world doesn't revolve around you and your freinds????????????
