Oregon’s spending problem drives up deficits as Dems propose more tax increases

Tax and spend.  Spend and tax.  Oregon Democrats once again flaunt their ignorance of the basic principles of economics. They passed Measures 66 & 67, which has driven away taxpaying businesses and jobs for taxpaying employees.   Now they wonder why their revenues are down, why schools are facing serious budget shortfalls, and why essential services […]

New Portland Police Chief: “We’re peacekeepers, not law enforcement”

New Portland Police Chief: “We’re peacekeepers, not law enforcement”

Now they’re emasculating our police force! “I believe we are peacekeepers, not law enforcement, and that’s my goal.” Why doesn’t he just come out and say, “Attention criminals, our ‘peacekeepers’ will no longer be using lethal force against you, so have a nice day (and please, pretty please, don’t shoot)!” If you want to know […]

  • Why State Democrats Held Up a Budget Deal Over I-1351 July 7, 2015
    Amending an initiative requires a supermajority. Republicans needed Democratic votes, but because the solution wasn’t revealed to us until the last moment, our caucus didn’t have a chance to discuss the decision to delay it. We have members who are willing to vote to change the initiative, but we were clear with Senate Republicans about […]
  • Senate Budget Breakdown Over 1-1351: Get Back to Work July 7, 2015
    State senators should reflect on whether they are truly free and independent of the WEA, which for too long has wagged the dog in Olympia and is now impeding bipartisan progress on fixing the school system’s unconstitutional inequities. Disappointingly, the Senate Democrats, led by Minority Leader Sharon Nelson of Maury Island and Deputy Leader Andy […]

  • America’s First High-Speed Rail Project July 7, 2015
    Despite continued evidence that high-speed rail is a waste of money, reporters still write articles lamenting that high-speed trains in America are “elusive.” It’s elusive for a simple reason: it makes no sense, being slower than flying, less convenient than driving, and far more expensive than both. Due to the high costs, high-speed rail projects […]
  • Say Yes to Self-Driving Cars July 6, 2015
    A writer for Electronic Design magazine named Lou Frenzel opines “that the driverless car is not a good idea.” His argument comes down to, “I don’t know anything about it, but I can think of lots of problems that I don’t imagine anyone at Google has ever thought of.” For example, he asks, can self-driving […]
  • 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.
