Anti-Tea Party Teacher Back in the Classroom

Anti-Tea Party Teacher Back in the Classroom

Can you imagine if he had done the same thing to a liberal group, making death threats and encouraging identity theft?  There’s no way they’d allow him to ever set foot in a classroom again! Fox News reports 3: The anti-Tea Party middle school teacher who is the focus of two investigations on allegations that […]

Tea Partiers Seek ‘Teachable Moment,’ Not Oregon Teacher’s Job

Tea Partiers Seek ‘Teachable Moment,’ Not Oregon Teacher’s Job

I’ll have to respectfully disagree with Geoff Ludt on this one. It makes for great PR for the Tea Party, but this is a disturbed individual and I sure wouldn’t want him teaching MY kids! I would agree with not calling for him to be fired if a) his job didn’t involve shaping the ideas […]

Hundreds gather at Tea Parties across Oregon

This year the Oregon Tea Party decided to hold several rallies across the state, with the Portland groups split up across dozens of freeway overpasses so that commuters would be sure to see them on their way home.  Fox 12 Oregon reported on it here.

“Party Crasher” identified as Oregon school teacher

“Party Crasher” identified as Oregon school teacher

A few days ago I blogged about the “Mad Hatter”, the administrator of an anti-Tea Party website called crashtheteaparty.org, and his plans to infiltrate and sabotage the April 15th Tea Parties. “The Mad Hatter” has since been identified as Jason Levin, a middle school teacher in Beaverton, Oregon.  I wonder what Beaverton parents think of this radical […]

No surprise: Multnomah County one of nation’s most liberal

No surprise: Multnomah County one of nation’s most liberal

As Multnomah County goes, so goes the state of Oregon.  We have our work cut out for us! From Jeff Mapes at the Oregonian: Multnomah County is the nation’s 16th most liberal county, according to the Daily Caller. You have to figure that a county where Barack Obama beat John McCain 77 percent to 20 […]

  • WaBA: An Opportunity to Strengthen I-937 March 27, 2015
    I-937 has been a landmark success, boosting solar and wind electricity. It’s important we make any changes carefully. Senate Bill 5735 gives us a good start by including Carbon Reduction Investments, in transportation for example, which is our biggest carbon pollution source. The post WaBA: An Opportunity to Strengthen I-937 appeared first on Washington State […]

    1) As Houthi rebels continued to gain ground in Yemen this week, Saudi Arabia has decided to step in.

  • A Bird in the Hand March 29, 2015
    A few years ago, I was reading a book in which the author related a story about a friend of his, a dog owner, who had told him she was glad dogs could have neither thoughts nor feelings as she understood them. Such incomprehensible dogs could not comprehend her. They had no demands to place […]

  • Where Will the Money Come From? March 30, 2015
    During the Antiplanner’s visit to Washington DC last week, I tried to encourage people to think about the incentives created by federal transportation funding. But the first question on the minds of most of the people I talked with was, “How will we pay for highways and transit?” From outside the Beltway, this question almost […]
  • Federal Transit Inequities, Part 2 March 27, 2015
    A few weeks ago, the Antiplanner presented data showing that the distribution of federal transit dollars to urban areas was highly uneven, ranging from 26 cents per transit rider to $2.17 per transit rider. The main factor that appeared to make a difference was whether the urban area was building expensive new rail transit lines. […]

The car is an Audi, but its self-driving electronics have been designed by Delphi, an auto supply company. Like Continental and Bosch, Delphi has been developing its own self-driving hardware and software. This […]
