Hot British Dates

Hot British Dates

Book now to avoid the rush! Ah, imagine basking amongst the shade of the swaying palm trees along the beaches of the River Thames. Such luxury can be yours in less than 40 years’ time, according to a report by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. If it sounds too good to believe, that’s because it […]

Guest Post: Oregon Rep. Dennis Richardson (R-04) Sounds The Alarm On State Budget

Dennis Richardson

5440 note: This is Dennis Richardson’s newsletter.

January 25, 2012 I am State Representative Dennis Richardson and I need your help in resolving Oregon’s State Budget […]

The Crime Train

The Crime Train

There’s a reason why we refer to Portland loot rail as the Crime Train. PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland transit police have arrested an 11-year-old boy who displayed a loaded gun during a dispute on a light rail train. Officers responded Thursday night to learn that a group of boys and girls had a dispute with another passenger […]

Real Hope, Real Change

Real Hope, Real Change

Chagrin Falls, Ohio: A little hardware store that’s been around for some 72 years now stands, oddly enough, as a reminder of what this country is all about. Barry Obama, you and your whole sorry administration need to take a look. You might learn something. MaxRedline: Real Hope, Real Change. Like this:Like Loading…

Tolerance

Tolerance

What happens when the oldest Jewish bakery in New York City packs it in? As it happens, a couple of Pakistani Muslims take the business over – and keep it kosher. For the bagels, that means high-gluten flour, brown sugar and liquid malt. It means making them by hand, not by machine, and boiling them, not […]

How To Brainwash A Nation: Former KGB Agent Explains Subversive Marxist Strategy Unleashed On America

1OWS-Oakland-Communist

He explains the 4 basic steps to socially engineering entire generations into thinking and behaving the way those in power want them to.  To date, we’re currently at step #3. View on YouTube Mr. Bezmenov went […]

That Explains The Sirens

That Explains The Sirens

So-called Occuturds were littering downtown Portland again last night; ostensibly in support of Freedom in Egypt. You have to love their deep understanding of local, national, and international events. About four of them were arrested during their celebration of freedom in Egypt, and it’s clear that the country over there pays considerable attention to the antics […]

“My Message Is Simple”

“My Message Is Simple”

This is one of the rare occasions when Obama speaks with complete honesty: not one of his alleged “State of the Union” speeches has achived above an eighth-grade level of language skill, and while the Left routinely portrayed George W. Bush as intellectually impaired, all of his State of the Union speeches exceeded Obama’s in […]

Shorter Obama in the State of the Union Address – I want more power

all in

Last night’s State of the Union was mostly the pablum we’ve come to expect – the kind of stuff that spawns drinking games. Blah blah blah, I, I, I, marxism centralized government end gridlock campaigning against a do-nothing congress. However, as the speech wore on, it became abundantly obvious that our President is going all […]

2012 State Of The Union Address: Obama Declares Himself King

obama-state-2_2118934b

No, I’m not exaggerating. Tonight’s speech was all about Obama.  How he’s the man with all the answers to our problems.  How innovation and job creation aren’t possible without government funding, mandates and centralized planning.   How our Constitutional Republic is “broken,” congress is “obstructionist,” the old-fashioned Executive branch hasn’t been granted enough power, and he […]

Cross-Post For CD-1 (Oregon) Voters

Cross-Post For CD-1 (Oregon) Voters

this is likely a first Image via Wikipedia for MaxRedline; however, the extensive links hold up. From Larry Sparks, Clatsop Co Republican Chairman (via GB): What Did She Know and When Did She Know It Suzanne Bonamici’s husband, Michael Simon, was David Wu’s personal attorney for nearly a decade, and as recently as last year […]

Obama Cronies Big Winners In Blocking Keystone XL Pipeline

Rail 4

Ever since Barack Obama nixed the TransCanada Oil Pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf, many people, unions and Democrats included have been scratching their heads pondering why he would kill off so many potential private sector jobs during these dire economic times. Yes I know it was all blamed on those evil Republicans, who pushed […]

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 […]

  • The Green Sheet for April 20, 2015 April 20, 2015
    The 2015 legislative session is scheduled to end next week, but without any signs of progress on the budget, it’s tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  The real deadline for a grand bargain is not the April 26th, but July 1st, which is when the state government will partially shut […]
  • Local Levies Can’t Fund Statewide Education April 20, 2015
    Without lifting the arbitrary 1 percent cap, neither levy reform proposal raises enough revenue to adequately fulfill the requirements for McCleary. Further, steps still need to be taken to safeguard access to basic education for all kids. The post Local Levies Can’t Fund Statewide Education appeared first on Washington State Wire.
  • Building Light Rail Is Not an Effective Way to Reduce Traffic Congestion April 20, 2015
    Environmental groups like Sightline say that transit does not reduce traffic congestion. Even Sound Transit CEO Joni Earl admits that more light rail will not provide congestion relief. She said, "We've never said we will reduce congestion." The post Building Light Rail Is Not an Effective Way to Reduce Traffic Congestion appeared first on Washington […]
  • Today’s Top International Stories: ISIS, Somalia & Finland April 20, 2015

  • Today’s Top International Stories: South Africa, Russia & China April 17, 2015
    1) The recent wave of anti-foreigner violence in South Africa has spread to the capital in Johannesburg.

  • Rail Transit and Reauthorization April 20, 2015
    The Cato Institute will publish a new report tomorrow looking at the inequities of federal transit funding. Antiplanner readers can download a preview copy today; many of the results in the paper have previously been reported here. The Antiplanner has argued for years that federal transit funding was inefficient because it encouraged transit agencies to […]
  • The Future of Oil April 17, 2015
    Bloomberg argues that “supply alone is [not] behind the plunge in crude prices to $50 a barrel.” Instead, demand for motor fuel has slacked off due to lack of growth in driving combined with more fuel-efficient cars and more competitive electric cars. The electric cars argument is specious, as too few of them have been […]
  • Oregon’s Next Bad Idea April 16, 2015
    Oregon’s House of Representatives passed a bill to legalize inclusionary zoning. In memory of Bart Simpson, this should be called the “I Didn’t Do It Act,” as the reason for Oregon’s low housing affordability compared with most other states is the legislature’s continuing support for land-use regulation and urban-growth boundaries. Inclusionary zoning requires home builders […]
