  1. Another DISMAL FAILURE for the NIGGER WORK of WEED-PICKIN'

    In 2004, the City of Portland CAPITULATED under pressure from the Anti-Pesticide Organization called Northwest Coalition For Alternatives To Pesticides ( NCAP ).

    Both Portland and NCAP recognized that so-called Green Alternatives were BOGUS, and almost TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE.

    The ONLY solutions were the HUGE COST in paid labour and volunteer work as BACK-BREAKING WEED-PICKERS, and potentially hazardous FLAME-THROWERS.

    Ultimately, the city was only able to afford PESTICIDE-FREE PARKS through the use of Anti-Pesticide Volunteers.

    Originally, 244 volunteers put in a combined 1,374 hours removing weeds at three parks.

    However, the availability of Anti-Pesticide Volunteers was UNRELIABLE, and SEVERELY DECLINED over a three year period.

    In the first year, turn-out was low, but peaked 60 hours for one work party.

    By the third year, the most attended was a mere 12 hours.

    When using conventional, scientifically safe, and effective methods of weed control products, NCAP estimated that an average five-acre neighbourhood park in Portland cost 371 dollars per year to keep the weeds out.

    PESTICIDE-FREE PARKS, on the other hand, came with the EXORBITANT COST of 3,621 dollars in annual maintenance costs, and 9,455 dollars in start-up costs for each new park.

    High costs were required to pay parks department employees to HAUL weeds collected by volunteers, and to inspect the parks to make sure weeds were under control.
