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

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 […]

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

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 […]
