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!

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

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

“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

As Multnomah County goes, so goes the state of Oregon.  We have our work cut out for us!

  • What Is Middle Class Economics? February 26, 2015
    An awkward truth for politicians looking to help the middle class is that there’s much less the government can do for them than for the poor.

    Smallter Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper, by the Manhattan Institute’s Robert Bryce, argues that human innovation will save the planet from climate change and other projected catastrophes.

    Ridership on Atlanta’s new streetcar is 18 percent below projections–and the projections assumed patrons would be charged a $1 fare, but (as of the date of the ridership numbers) the city was still offering free introductory rides. Meanwhile, operating costs have proven to be a mere 50 percent more than projected. Washington, DC’s new streetcar […]
  • Cities Want Federal Grants February 24, 2015
    Here’s another article claiming that the fact that cities are foolish enough to accept federal grants to build streetcars proves that “America has a renewed desire for streetcars.” The article then lists eleven streetcar projects–some of them under construction, others still in early planning phases–as evidence.
