PDX We Have a Problem

Christmas tree bomber and crowd

Accused “Christmas Tree Bomber” (photo courtesy of Conservative Mom) Portland We Have a Problem Portland OR, January 9, 2012 by Anti-Jihadi Over the past year many have speculated about Portland’s latest jihadi, Mohamed O. Mohamud  for planning to blow up the city’s Christmas Tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square in 2010. Some believe that […]

Cycle 25!

Cycle 25!

You probably thought, “Oh, it’s a Portland blog. This is gonna be about the latest trend in Saving The Planet™ by bicycle.” Wrong. It’s actually about the latest trend in Anthropogenic Global Warming – which, oddly, doesn’t seem to be happening, so forget about booking that tropical vacation in Wales for now. As it happens, the […]

Law And Odor

Law And Odor

Of the many government officials involved in the “Operation Fast and Furious” gun- running scheme, only one has lost his job. On July 10, 2009, President Obama named Dennis Burke as his nominee for U.S. attorney for Arizona. He was confirmed by unanimous consent in the Senate on Sept. 15 of that year. Interestingly, over the course of the […]

Takin’ It To The Streets

Takin’ It To The Streets

Some 5,000 anti-abortion protesters rallied in the streets yesterday; Image by Getty Images via @daylife 300 arests were made, and officers earlier fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center. Of course, the arrests and tear-gassing had nothing to do with the assemblage of abortion opponents who gathered at the […]

The Claim: They Pick Your Food!

The Claim: They Pick Your Food!

Hey, they can go home and pick their noses. Image via Wikipedia This whole “they’re only here to do the jobs Americans won’t do” thing just doesn’t fly. Dubya was wrong, and that philosophy still is about as attractive as a Porta-Potty on a hot day in Juarez. So is this: SEATTLE — In Olympia, it’s not […]

  • Renewable Energy By Any Other Name Doesn’t Smell As Sweet July 1, 2015
    Unlike the rest of the world, our huge amount of hydropower is not allowed to be recognized as renewable anymore, thus we have to buy wind from another state and throw away hydro-generated electricity when that wind comes online. This rather ludicrous situation came about from a foolish, if well-intentioned, 2006 Washington State Ballot Initiative […]
  • Deal Not Yet Sealed, But Gas-Tax Increase Advances July 1, 2015
    The Legislature voted in Wednesday’s early hours to approve the largest gas-tax increase in Washington’s history and the first in a decade. The 11.9 cents-a-gallon increase could pave the way for major highway spending in the South Sound. But approval of borrowing and spending plans tied to the taxes will have to wait. The post […]

  • WiFi Yes, V2V No July 1, 2015
    A little-known conflict over the electromagnetic spectrum could shape self-driving cars for years to come. On one side is “an ecosystem of companies” that have developed vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications systems and the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission (NHTSC), which wants to mandate such systems in all cars and trucks, which together want the Federal Communications […]
  • Austerians or Common-Sensicans? June 30, 2015
    The Greek debt crisis has Paul Krugman waging a verbal war against those he called Austerians, meaning economists who think the solution to being up-to-your-ears in debt is to cut back on spending. (It’s also a pun on Austrian economics, which generally opposes government intervention in just about anything.) “Greece was overspending, but not by […]
  • So Much for Low-Capacity Rail June 29, 2015
    When Orlando decided to fund and operate a commuter train, many residents probably thought they could take the train to major events. Orlando expects to attract 120,000 people to its fireworks show this July 4th, but none of them will take the train to the site. We’ve all heard the claim that a rail line […]
