Portland's downtown has become a shithole. It's dirty, and you can't swing a dead bum without hitting another one. My life would be great here if I were a homeless crackhead, but I lack the drive for that carreer. Which Portland-size or smaller city out there is still a nice place to live?

No city is worthy of my residence or tax dollars - so I refuse to live in one.

The only choice is to leave the city. Otherwise, learn to step over them.

Do what I do.

Work in the inner, live on the outskirts.

There is no bums where I live and I live in one of the largest cities in Oregon, which is Gresham.

Sadly, I have to agree.

Boise and the Treasure Valley don't have a homeless problem. What I like about Boise is the police shoot to kill.

Actually, it seems that they only congregate in one park - Pioneer Park (size of acity block). You will see them over by the shelter/clinic that is directly south of the Gateway development. However, they do keep to themselves for the most part. Hell, they hold a huge farmers market in Pioneer Park on the weekends, w/ hundreds of vendors and you really don't see to many of them.

Downtown Portland is fuggin covered in stinky hippies and bums thou. DC is weird, bums are here and there - you can always find a few, but they rarely seem to congregate in large numbers during the day time (You might find a dozen at Freedom Plaza off of Penn. Ave., but that is about it. I know that they tend to congregate when the sun goes down. I imagine that anywhere it is really cold during the winter would be a good bum repelant...

Do you consider filthy, worthless illegal aliens as bums...I do.

If so, Phoenix sure isn't the place for you. It's infested with illegals.

Chicago hell no. When's the last time you were even in California? I blew Illinois the shithole of the planet back in '81 and have been back once ... just to remember what freezing by balls off will avoiding the facist police was like. Got that FOID card handy? If you live in Chicago let's see your handgun collection.

Honestly don't you even know better???

Portland is half a million folk. With a crime rate about double the national average ... shouldn't be too hard to do better then that.

Closest in size would be - Charlotte, Fort Worth, Nashville, Denver, Oklahoma City, Tucson and New Orleans. I would skip New Orleans at this point. Denver was nice but the bums downtown were very aggressive compared to the ones in Chicago. I'd look at Fort Worth, Nashville-Davidson, and Tuscon but lots depends if you're working for a living or just living off the trust fund.

Fort Worth is about 50% higher than the national crime rate, no data for Nashville, and Tuscon has a higher crime rate than Portland but like Fort Worth the murder rate is about half of Portland.




I was in Anaheim in 1992, thank you very much.

The cleanest city I have ever been to was Monte Carlo. There wasnt a single piece of trash on the ground, and no homeless. Hell I was the closest thing to a bum with my old running shoes on. A little pricey though. A 1000 sq ft. condo was a minimum of 1.2 million US dollars.

Charlotte would be my choice in the US.

Can't speak to the Sacremento bums except the elected ones in the suits and ties.

The best bums I ever met were the ones in Tokoyo - totally crime free except by exception. Singapore is a very clean city too.



I guess the canings help keep the bums off the streets in signapore.

Have you been back to SF since they supposedly became bum central?

You are on the right track.

Im from SubZero Ohio, very few homelsss period. Came to Temperate, WA, crawling out the woodwork.


I would think anywhere sub zero for any period of time would do the trick, like with mosquitos.

There aren't any homeless bums here, but more than a few whackos that make up for that absence.

Try some of the, umm, I think they're calling them "exurbs" now. Bellevue, WA is pretty nice, as of course are Kirkland and Redmond. All of the bums hang out in downtown Seattle, leaving these nearby cities reasonably clean and bum-free.

Dude, have you been around 1st Ave South or the railroad tracks lately? Or in the Empire or Rainbow bars? Heck - the city is getting ready to pony up 150-200k in a grant to supplement a private developer who wants to buy the Empire Bar property and tear it down for a parking lot. They figure that would be a good investment because of all the fire, police, and ambulance expenditures that result from it's existence as a haven for the bums, meth heads, etc... I love Billings, but we're hardly bum free.

San Fran passed a law maybe 10 years ago outlawing aggressive panhandling and then kicked a load of bums out of The Wharf and Pier 39. Before that, the bums were very "in your face" and aggressive.

Try San Fransisco. I was on a job for four months there, and, they
were paying homless to live in the city.

As a rule of thumb: the more liberal a city is, the more bums it has.

Don't come to Atlanta. It is the only city I know that has a damn statue dedicated to bums. The city council just inacted a no pan handling ordinace but there was such an uproar of racisim about it that they excluded a triangle sized portion of the city from the ordinance. Of course part of the city that is excluded is the part where I have to go to school at. Lovely! Worst run city on the planet. Want to see what happens to a city that is run by people who scream racisim every five seconds and are only elected because they new somebody or worked in the civil rights movement then come to Atlanta! You can get elected and have no idea what you are supposed to do once you get elected.
