    New Bill Would Allow Oregon Drivers to Pump Their Own Gas

    Geez...

    Since 1951 Oregonians have relied on someone else to gas our cars, which can sometimes be extremely frustrating when you have lines backed up forever and 2 poor gas attendants running around like crazy people trying to take care of everyone.

    Under a new bill passed unanimously by the House this week, that may change for rural roads in Oregon. According to KEZI, in remote sections of Oregon gas stations will have the option to allow customers to pump their own gas – when no owner, operator or employee is around.

    The law is expected to be limited to counties where there are less than 40,000 residents, and the bill is now headed to the Senate. Personally, I’m totally for it. Did you know Oregon and New Jersey are the only two states that don’t offer self-service gasoline? It’s funny talking to someone from out of state. They can’t believe the long lines we have, which are damn near non existent in other states.

    I love gassing up in Oregon and having someone else pump it. It's a treat. If I remember correctly, the purpose of not having self serve gas stations in Oregon was to create jobs in response to the government ruining Oregon's logging industry.

    I love it when government creates protected jobs. That's some good stuff right there.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Yes please. Do things for me that I'm perfectly capable of doing myself.

    I drove though New Jersey a few years back and was absolutely shocked that I was not allowed to use the pump and obligated to tip. I felt like I time-traveled to 1950.

    I like full service stations, and I desperately tried using the force of the market to keep a few open, but I failed. And yet, I survived.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    The minimum wage is the force of the state that got rid of them.

    I have no issue with people who like that kind of service, I do have issue with people who try to force it on me. There were a few in PA and MI.

    Speaking of MI, know anyone who wants to buy or rent a 3BR/2BA house w/15 acres and a barn in an incredibly small town?
