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 […]

  • Two Citizen Initiatives Likely To Be on November Ballot July 3, 2015
    Two citizen initiative campaign submitted boxloads of petitions by the Friday deadline, and both appear to have an excellent shot at making the statewide ballot this fall. Tim Eyman turned in what he estimated at at least 334,000 signatures for Initiative 1366. That measure would direct the Legislature to place a constitutional amendment on the […]

  • The Spirit of ‘76 July 4, 2015
    On July 4th, 1826, a Washington newspaper published one of the most poignant letters penned in American history. An ailing Thomas Jefferson regretfully declined an invitation to celebrate the 50th anniversary of American independence with the citizens of the nation’s capital. “[T]o be present with them,” he wrote, “as one of the surviving signers of […]
  • The Detection Club July 4, 2015
    And in those days, a genius arose among the people, and she taught them greatly the ways of … um, well, the writing of mystery novels. However much it was clearly a breakthrough of small but real genius, what Agatha Christie achieved in 1920 with her first book, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, is hard […]
  • Oregon Starts Mileage-Based User Fees July 2, 2015
    Yesterday, the Oregon Department of Transportation began accepting applications from volunteers willing to switch from paying gas taxes to mileage-based user fees. The experimental program is limited to 5,000 volunteers and apparently the applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Oregon’s gasoline tax is 30 cents a gallon, so if your car gets 30 […]
  • WiFi Yes, V2V No July 1, 2015
    A little-known conflict over the electromagnetic spectrum could shape self-driving cars for years to come. On one side is “an ecosystem of companies” that have developed vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications systems and the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission (NHTSC), which wants to mandate such systems in all cars and trucks, which together want the Federal Communications […]
  • Austerians or Common-Sensicans? June 30, 2015
    The Greek debt crisis has Paul Krugman waging a verbal war against those he called Austerians, meaning economists who think the solution to being up-to-your-ears in debt is to cut back on spending. (It’s also a pun on Austrian economics, which generally opposes government intervention in just about anything.) “Greece was overspending, but not by […]
