Author’s note: This post originally appeared at http://redcounty.com/content/oregon-most-corrupt-state-union-pt-2 on Oct 29, 2010. Pertinent archives are being migrated to this new blog.

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union, Pt. 1

Author’s note: This post originally appeared at http://redcounty.com/content/oregon-most-corrupt-state-union-pt-1 on Oct 29, 2010. Pertinent archives are being migrated to this new blog. So, look. I know this is a controversial subject. Those in New Jersey, Illinois, Louisiana and Nevada will get all competitive. Californians will wonder who’s making so much noise upstairs. New York will wonder […]

The Zero thinks we’re “lying low”.  They ain’t seen nothin’ yet! From the Oregonian: The Oregon Tea Party is celebrating its official formation as a federal Political Action Committee at a kick-off event this Saturday, just two days before voters head to the polls. Oregon’s version of the national movement, which has been making headlines […]

Americans For Prosperity team up with Oregon Tea Party to protest Obama visit

Americans For Prosperity team up with Oregon Tea Party to protest Obama visit

Obama was in Portland yesterday to stump for Kitzhaber in his gubernatorial campaign, and Americans For Prosperity and the Oregon Tea Party were there to greet him.   Obama’s appearance has been the “kiss of death” for other Democrat candidates, so there’s reason to hope we may still win this tight race. KGW was the only […]

  • Wages Too Low, Options Too Few: Washington’s Child Care Crisis Impacts Children, Parents, Providers April 29, 2016
    A new report by the Economic Policy Institute released today exposes the harsh truths about the child care crisis in Washington State – and around the country – and highlights how a national investment that caps families’ child care expenditures at 10 percent of their income could help more women join and stay in the […]
  • Constitutional Amendment a Must for Balancing State Budget April 29, 2016
    The state budget covers two years at a time, so why make budget writers look ahead further? It’s because the decade preceding 2013 often saw legislators propose or make spending choices that would balloon in the next budget cycle. That’s why we will push the next Legislature to ask voters to weigh in on a […]
  • Colorado Weighs Replacing Obama’s Health Policy With Universal Coverage April 29, 2016
    The estimated $38-billion-a-year proposal, which will go before Colorado voters in November, will test whether people have an appetite for a new system that goes further than the Affordable Care Act. That question is also in play in the Democratic presidential primaries. The post Colorado Weighs Replacing Obama’s Health Policy With Universal Coverage appeared first […]
  • Today’s Top 3 International Stories: Syria, Libya & Uganda February 23, 2016
    1) The U.S. and Russia have come to a decision on a ceasefire for Syria, which will include all warring parties except the two largest terrorist blocks, Al-Nursa and ISIS. Previous agreements to stop violence and provide aid have failed to stay in place. Sec. of State John Kerry said if the current deal fails […]
  • Today’s (Late) Top 3 International Stories: Bahrain, Libya & Russia February 18, 2016
    1) On Sunday, four American members of the press were arrested in Bahrain, while covering protests marking the anniversary of Bahrain’s 2011 Arab Spring uprising. Family members now report that on Tuesday, Bahrain released Anna Day and her camera crew after being interrogated. They have left Bahrain. The government claims the four participated in an […]
  • Today Top 3+ International Stories: Egypt, Mexico, France Plus Syria February 12, 2016
    1) In Egypt, thousands of doctors in Cairo turned out to protest after reports circulated that two doctors at a hospital in the capital had been beaten by police. It is not clear why the doctors were targeted, but it could be because they treated or sympathized with dissenters in opposition to former military leader […]
  • Simplicity April 30, 2016
    Simple is hard—more difficult than cutting diamonds, more back-breaking than mining coal. Of course, complicated is also hard. Nothing good in art comes easy. But we can be deceived by the simplicity of an artwork’s effect, tempted into believing that it must derive from a simplicity of effort. And to all such temptations, there’s really […]
  • Expressions of the People April 30, 2016
    We have not ended up where we began, with democracy. Our institutions of government, business of lawmaking, and notions about successful popular rule do not resemble all that closely the storied originals from Athens. Of course, the broad outlines of democracy are still here—elections occur; liberty and rights are invoked—but democracy’s substance has changed. Democracy […]
  • SSA Putting Millions of Americans at Risk for Identity Theft April 29, 2016
    The Social Security Administration puts millions of Americans at risk for identity theft by putting their full Social Security Numbers on letters sent in the mail. The agency’s inspector general released an audit this week warning the government that by sending hundreds of millions of letters containing individual’s Social Security Numbers it puts them at […]
  • Hillsborough County Commissioners Vote No April 29, 2016
    Tampa-area voters will be spared the expense of having to go through another campaign to build an obsolete transit system in the city thanks to a 3-to-2 vote against the project by Hillsborough County commissioners. Voters already rejected the light-rail project once in 2010, and voters in neighboring Pinellas County voted against a connecting rail […]
  • Why the Dollar Works and the Euro Doesn’t April 27, 2016
    The Greek debt crisis led some people to wonder why a common currency works in the United States but not in Europe. Then came the Puerto Rico debt crisis. Yet what happened in Puerto Rico actually shows why the dollar works when the euro doesn’t. Normally, a country that finds itself with unsustainable debt can […]
  • The New Feudalism April 26, 2016
    Feudalism–an economic system in which all land is owned by the monarch and everyone else must pay rent to use that land–supposedly ended hundreds of years ago. But a map of the world showing the current status of property suggests that it is alive and well over most of the planet. Moreover, a new form […]
