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. What their line is: winds blow strongest at night, solar works best during the day – so installing both makes good economic sense. The reality: the US wind market […]

It’s Time To Take Back Education

indoctrination

In the 2008 election, 68 percent of new young voters overwhelming chose to vote for Obama and the Democrats’ socialist agenda. That’s a scary statistic, but it’s no accident. It’s the result of a patient, long-term strategy on the part of leftist social reformers, and it’s finally coming to fruition. The majority of new voters […]

  • Capital budget’s impact on school construction funding July 21, 2017
    The third special session ended yesterday without the passage of the $4.2 billion capital budget. Legislators were unable to agree on a water-rights bill to address the Supreme Court’s Hirst decision, an issue rural representatives had tried to raise repeatedly throughout the session. “We’ve never seen anything like this before, but the stakes have never […]
  • Ranker: Unconscionable that Senate Republicans blocked vote on capital budget July 21, 2017
    Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, released this statement after Senate Republicans refused to allow a vote on the state capital budget: It is incredibly unfortunate that on the final day of the special legislative session, the Senate Republicans placed their political agenda ahead of the wellbeing of our children, mentally ill, homeless, and public and […]
  • Capital budget, Ryan Calkins, #dadhacks July 20, 2017
    With luck, today will be the last day of the 2017 legislative session, giving us a whopping 12 days before the August primary.  We’ve got a few data points for you, both qualitative and quantitative, on the session and the ballot box in this edition of the Morning Wire. As always, thanks for reading our […]
  • “Stability” Is Another Word for “Lack of Accountability” July 22, 2017
    A bill in the California legislature would give Caltrain, the commuter trains that connect San Jose with San Francisco, “permanent financial stability.” That’s good news if you think you will be riding Caltrains one thousand years from now, but it’s bad news for the taxpayers who will have to “permanently”–however long that is–pay for running […]
  • HUD Backs Off on Housing Mandate July 21, 2017
    In a case with national ramifications, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has effectively given up on its efforts to impose high-density housing on low-density suburbs in the name of racial integration. HUD had ordered Westchester County, New York, to build low-income housing in response to claims that county zoning led to segregated […]
  • Will Miami Settle for Modern Transportation? July 20, 2017
    “Can Miami afford more rail?” asks the Miami Herald. “Or will it settle for buses?” That’s like asking if you can afford an IBM 700 mainframe computer from the 1950s or if you will settle for a MacBook Pro. Both buses and laptop computers are far less expensive than rails and mainframes, but the former […]
