Not sure this is the proper forum--let me know if not.

I've seen this on the back window of some cars and pick 'em up trucks in the Salem area. Is this:

A firearms related political/personal statement of support?
A "redneck" taunt of "elitists"?
Whimsical play on the state's name?
Something else?

Yup--Quickest way to spot an "import" is if they pronounce it OR-E-GONE. The other one is Willamette. It's not WILL-AH-MET-TEE.
Of course is you are from one state north, one of the "test words" is the town of SEQUIM. I'll let ya guess on that one for a bit.

It's easy to spot a non-native, when they complain about not being able to pump their own gas.
If they want to pump their own gas they should just buy a motorcycle.
I have to laugh about this one. When I was out here house hunting 19 years ago (moved from Minnesota) I pulled into a gas station and started pumping my own gas when all of a sudden this gas station attendant runs at me SCREAMING "You can't do that!". I thought the guy was having a psychotic episode. :s0114:

Furiners call our beloved states Orygun, especially those from the East Coast. The other variation is Ory-gone. It ain't gone anywhere, it is still here.

We need a governor like Tom McCall, Keep Oregon green, bring your money, then leave the state. Do not Californicate Oregon. And the every popular Henry Weinhard's Oregon Border Control.

I have one of those hats..........I remember the sign at the Cal. border that read "we shoot every third Cal. plate, number 3 just passed" still have that news print around somewhere.

You know, when I end up having to go to Oregon for something, the gas station attendants never hassle me about pumping my own fuel..
