Hey Sam: They’re Laughing *At* You, Not *With* You

adams-beer

Dateline Portland Oregon, January 2012:  Tonight’s “Laughing at Liberal Loons Moment” comes at the expense of Mayor Sam Adams who apparently can not tell when people are laughing *AT* him rather than *WITH* him.  A new episode of Portlandia pokes fun at the Adams Bag Ban and the reduction in individual freedoms that it brings […]

The Word Can Kill

The Word Can Kill

“Peaceful protesters” in San Francisco broke into an abandoned hotel, gathered up Bibles still remaining in the guest rooms, and carried them up to the roof – where they began throwing them at police on the street below. They threw bricks, as well. Occupy San Francisco’s “Day of Action” turned violent Friday night when protesters occupied […]

Sustainable Energy (Sustained By Your Wallet)

Sustainable Energy (Sustained By Your Wallet)

General Electric’s now trying to convince Image via Wikipedia folks who’ve bought wind turbines from them to augment their purchases by buying their solar panels as well.

    It was sometime in the winter of 1975 when a couple of Eastern Washington freshman House members started grousing about Adele Ferguson’s acidic description of them in her columns. Those were the days when members of the Capitol Press Corps were granted access to the legislative members-only dining area under the House floor. We ate […]
  • Utah MMJ Law Will Cause “Stoned Rabbits” Says DEA Agent-Consumerist Blog March 4, 2015
    There are many arguments for and against using marijuana legally in this country, whether for medical use or for fun, but one drug enforcement official’s reason for his stance against legalizing it in Utah is surely one nobody’s about to forget: He says wild bunnies will get high off the stuff. The post Utah MMJ […]
  • House Passes Minimum Wage Increase to $12, Paid Sick Leave March 4, 2015
    The House of Representatives made quick work of two major labor-backed bills Tuesday, getting 51-46 votes to send over to the Senate an increase in the minimum wage to $12 by 2019, and institute paid sick and safe leave for the vast majority of employers in Washington state. Both votes were on party lines, with […]

    1) Due to fears of Russian aggression, Lithuania has reinstated compulsory military conscription.

  • Empty Nesters Moving into Bigger Homes March 5, 2015
    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is “surprised” that retirees are moving into bigger homes, not smaller ones like the “conventional wisdom” dictates. Of course, that’s the conventional wisdom of urban planners, not demographers or economists, which means it is more like untested hypotheses, not wisdom. In any case, people who have accumulated a lifetime of toys and […]
  • No Infrastructure Fund March 4, 2015
    A lot of people have proposed that Congress create an infrastructure bank that would fund or finance the reconstruction and expansion of America’s transportation and other infrastructure. One problem is where the money would come from. Another problem is how would it be allocated. Representative John Delaney (D-MD) thinks he has the answers to these […]
  • Amtrak Not Worth State Support March 3, 2015
    The Antiplanner arrived at the Purple Line debate debate last night to find protesters who were apparently upset that anyone would consider not building a train whose projected costs have already risen by more than 40 percent and whose ridership projections are so outlandish that even the Federal Transit Administration uses a lower (though still […]
