Hey Govenor Brown, what do you think about putting a good ole freeze on your lunatic buddies that are rioting and protesting in Portland ??? Huh??? You think that may help?? Or how about the casinos Govenor??? Maybe if you learn how to prioritize and kick these destructive lunatics out of Portland, you may not see so many spikes!!! Enough of the insanity. We need leadership not co-dependency.

Amen to that!

'OHA also reported 10 more people have died from the coronavirus' And yet again the OHA is misleading / deceiving people. These people died from age related underlying medical conditions, and not from the coronavirus.
