Politically correct Portland rejected feds who saved city from terrorist attack

Politically correct Portland rejected feds who saved city from terrorist attack

When security becomes politicized: they’ll only cooperate with federal law enforcement if their own party is in power. Byron York observes at the Washington Examiner: In 2005, leaders in Portland, Oregon, angry at the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror, voted not to allow city law enforcement officers to participate in a key […]

Oregon Is The Most Corrupt State In The Union, Pt. 9.

Oregon Is The Most Corrupt State In The Union, Pt. 9.

Author’s note: This post originally appeared at http://redcounty.com/content/oregon-most-corrupt-state-union-pt-9 on Nov 8, 2010. Pertinent archives are being migrated to this new blog. In wading through all the reports of the broken chain of custody, I completely forgot to post the most ridiculous permutation of Oregon Election Law. 2009 HB 3451 allows for ballots to be opened 7 […]

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union

Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union

Oregon patriot Chuck Wiese made this observation after the election results were finalized: The fix is in for voter fraud in the State of Oregon. At some time recent, the statutes were changed to ORS 247.017 (4): “Except as provided in ORS 247.125, if a registration card is legible, accurate and contains, at a minimum, […]

People’s Republic of Oregon bucks national trend towards conservatism

People’s Republic of Oregon bucks national trend towards conservatism

While we certainly celebrated Republican victories across the country, election night was bittersweet for conservatives in Oregon.  These small pockets of blue managed to override the voters in the rest of the state once again. Multnomah County, home to the People’s Republic of Portland, is the most liberal in the state of Oregon, but it’s also the […]

Why Chris Dudley lost

Why Chris Dudley lost

13,069 votes. That’s how close we came to finally having a Republican governor. It’s even more disheartening to learn that ‎19,013 voted for Greg Kord of the Constitution Party and 17,404 for Libertarian Wes Wagner – more than enough to have put us in the winner’s circle.  Neither group is particularly friendly to Dems.  If they had felt […]

She made the point that this state is FAR more corrupt than any of us realize. She gave two […]

    The Sound Transit board passed a motion today to authorize its CEO “to continue communications and engagement with the State Legislature” in order to “pursue options to address public concerns” about its inflated car tab tax calculation method.  Sens.

  • Republicans share their budget proposal, but don’t expect a deal anytime soon March 23, 2017
    The Republican Senate majority unveiled its proposed budget for the 2017-2019 biennium this week. The $43.3 billion plan to fund state government includes $1.8 billion in new money for schools, spending more than 50 percent of the state budget on education for the first time since the 1980s.

  • Backstabbing in the Self-Driving Car Industry March 24, 2017
    Bloomberg has a long article about Google’s lawsuit against Uber over self-driving car technology. In a nutshell, one of Google’s top engineers, Anthony Levandowski, left Google to start a new company called Otto that was then purchased by Uber for $700 million, and Google is accusing Levandowski of taking its company secrets with him and […]
  • Transit Ridership Down 2.3% in 2016 March 23, 2017
    With little fanfare, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) released its fourth quarter 2016 ridership report last week. When ridership goes up, the lobby group usually issues a big press release ballyhooing the importance of transit (and transit subsidies). But 2016 ridership fell, so there was no press release. The report showed that light-rail ridership […]
  • Did Nader Really Call Apple a Monopoly? March 22, 2017
    “Consumer advocate Ralph Nader, concerned about fake news prevalent on social media sites, believes Congress should weigh in with antitrust legislation targeting Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Apple,” reports the Washington Examiner. Say what? Just what do Microsoft and Apple have to do with so-called fake news? How are any of these companies monopolies? Is Ralph […]
