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

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. Here are some pictures from our local Tea Party at an overpass […]

“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 […]

  • Column: States rights across the aisle February 22, 2017
    It’s not unusual for political dynamics to shift as political powers shift at the federal level. But the dynamics are changing pretty quickly as we enter the second month of President Donald Trump’s administration. Notably, Democratic governors and mayors have been defending their values and speaking for their constituents with an argument often used by […]
  • Democrats call, again, for action on ‘levy cliff’ February 22, 2017
    Some school districts may have to send out pink slips if the state legislature doesn’t pass the Democrats’ “levy cliff” bill, argued Democratic leadership at their weekly press conference Tuesday. “I’m hearing from superintendents too,” said Rep. Kristine Lytton, Anacortes, at the press conference. “They are trying to dig into the complexity of the senate […]
  • GOP leaders defend education funding plan, criticize Democrats’ plan February 21, 2017
    After facing criticism for their budget plan, Republican leaders defended their education funding proposal Monday at a press conference, and made their own criticisms of the Democrat’s levy cliff bill. Washington GOP legislators’ plan is to implement something of a “levy swap” to fund education in Washington. Background Senate Republicans announced their plan Jan. 27 […]
  • Free for a Limited Time Four More Years February 22, 2017
    Washington DC’s H Street streetcar has failed in just about every way possible. The 2.2-mile line cost $200 million, which is enough to build ten to twenty miles of four-lane freeway; it opened years behind schedule; and–despite being free “for a limited time”–it carries a paltry 2,400 people per weekday, which in a sane world […]
  • Congestion Cost U.S. $295 Billion in 2016 February 21, 2017
    Speaking of congestion (as the Antiplanner was yesterday), a new congestion scorecard from Inrix estimates that congestion cost America $295 billion in 2016, which is more than 1.5 percent of 2016 GDP. Where the Texas Transportation Institute’s previous estimates of congestion costs counted only the cost to commuters, Inrix adds costs to consumers who must […]
  • Good News and Bad News February 20, 2017
    Good news: The United States had 56,000 structurally deficient bridges in 2016. That’s good news because the number in 2015 was nearly 59,000. In fact, the number has declined in every year since 1992 (the earliest year for which records are available), when it was 124,000. The American Road and Transportation Builders thinks 2016’s number […]
