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 […]

  • State senator asks U.S. AG to intervene in King County’s safe-injection site plan February 17, 2017
    As King County officials work to open two safe-injection sites, state Sen. Mark Miloscia, R-Federal Way, is working at the state and federal level to block the sites. Miloscia’s bill that would ban sites where heroin users can safely inject around medical professionals, has passed out of committee, according to a press release from his office. […]
  • Column: Doug Ericksen is being too cute by half February 17, 2017
    The idea that someone can serve as a sitting state senator during the legislative session and hold down a full-time job on the side is ludicrous on its face to anyone remotely familiar with the duties of a state legislator. That’s why there has been no shortage of critiques of Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, attempting […]
  • Column: Inslee and the White House, or why we have a federal system February 17, 2017
    The parlor game of thinking through future elections can be entertaining.  I advocated for Jay Inslee to run for President in 2015, for example, in a column that drew private comments from both my left and my right of the “Are you serious?” sort. And, with the recent court battles led by AG Bob Ferguson […]
  • Congestion Cost U.S. $295 Billion in 2016 February 21, 2017
    Speaking of congestion (as the Antiplanner was yesterday), a new congestion scorecard from Inrix estimates that congestion cost America $295 billion in 2016, which is more than 1.5 percent of 2016 GDP. Where the Texas Transportation Institute’s previous estimates of congestion costs counted only the cost to commuters, Inrix adds costs to consumers who must […]
  • Good News and Bad News February 20, 2017
    Good news: The United States had 56,000 structurally deficient bridges in 2016. That’s good news because the number in 2015 was nearly 59,000. In fact, the number has declined in every year since 1992 (the earliest year for which records are available), when it was 124,000. The American Road and Transportation Builders thinks 2016’s number […]
  • The Economic Implications of Housing Supply February 17, 2017
    A new paper with the above title by urban economists Edward Glaeser and Joseph Gyourko provides more evidence to back up the Antiplanner’s recent paper on the New Feudalism. One of the major points of that paper was that the Obama administration’s plan to force suburbs to relax zoning codes to allow higher density housing […]
