What is it really like in downtown Portland, Oregon, in 2021? The decades of whacked out liberal rule have finally caught up with the once-great city, as it has devolved into a third-world dump. Sidewalks are lined with homeless tents and garbage, buildings are all boarded up, either to prevent the routine rioters from destroying them or because they have been abandoned. Graffiti is everywhere. Avoid this place at all costs.
