Oh, The Humanity!

Oh, The Humanity!

A half-dozen terrorists in line to be extradited to the USA to face charges tried to get out of it by arguing that if convicted, they’d be subject to inhumane conditions at the Colorado Supermax prison. Lawyers for radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza and five other men indicted in the U.S. on various terror charges between 1999 […]

Revisiting The O.K. Corral

Revisiting The O.K. Corral

In 2011, the Monument Fire ripped through the Huachuca Mountains in Arizona—land belonging to the U.S. Forest Service.  Following the fire, floods and torrential mudslides destroyed mountain spring water lines to the town of Tombstone. Yessir, the United States Forest Service owns that land, and they not only allowed it to be decimated by wildfire […]

Ed Secretary Wants More Money for Gov’t ‘Pre-K’, Won’t Support Tax Breaks For Stay-At-Home Moms

Whatever it takes to convince parents to cede their parental responsibilities and turn their children over to “the village” (i.e. the State) as early as possible, that’s what they’ll support…and demand your money to implement it. Notice the socialist key words in his statements.  I have highlighted them in bold: Eric Scheiner reports at CNS […]

Here we go again! Andrew Restuccia reports at The Hill: The Energy Department said Thursday it expects to begin tentatively approving new taxpayer-backed loans for renewable energy projects in the coming months. The announcement comes about seven months after Solyndra, the California solar firm that received a $535 million loan guarantee from the administration in […]

So You Don’t Want To Vote For Romney…

Patriots, it’s pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president.  We’re stuck with the cards in our hand. I understand the temptation to sit out the election or split off and create our own party.  I get it.  I really do.  But the reality is, if we do that […]

Oregon Save Our Schools – Affiliated With Socialists And Occupy?

teacher union

This week, a post on a new blog appeared that supports a teacher’s strike in three East Multnomah County school districts. The blog purports to represent an organization called Oregon Save Our Schools, and seems to have started in January 2012 in anticipation of a strike by the Gresham Barlow Education Association (GBEA), a local […]

  • Senate committee discusses collective bargaining transparency August 17, 2017
    The Senate Commerce & Labor Committee held a work session yesterday on “public transparency in collective bargaining negotiations.” Despite the strong mandate for government transparency declared by the people in the Open Public Meetings Act, government employee contracts are usually negotiated in secret, meaning an important and costly taxpayer expense is hidden until the final bill comes due. There […]

  • Rep. Orwall to co-chair national Military and Veterans Task Force August 17, 2017
    Earlier this month, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), a bipartisan organization that provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues, selected Speaker Pro-Tem Tina Orwall (D-Des Moines) as co-chair of the Military & Veterans Affairs Task Force. “This is truly an honor and a great privilege,” said Orwall, who […]
  • “Quick Win” for Buses = Loss for Commuters August 18, 2017
    New York City rail transit lines have fallen on hard times, with frequent delays, accidents, and even trains not running at all. While Governor Cuomo has declared a state of emergency, some transit advocates want to make sure buses aren’t forgotten in any multi-billion-dollar fix. Some of their ideas, such as having people pay before […]
  • Black Crater Fire August 17, 2017
    The internet and phone service were both down in Camp Sherman yesterday afternoon and evening, which is when I would normally write the next day’s Antiplanner. So instead I took some night photos of the Milli Fire, which was burning on about 256 3,500 acres a few miles from here. Click image for a larger […]
  • Streamlining Infrastructure Approvals August 16, 2017
    President Trump issued an executive order yesterday aimed at streamlining the federal approval process for infrastructure projects. Contrary to the impression given by press reports, the order doesn’t repeal any environmental laws or rules. All it really does, the White House explains, is require federal agencies to work together to speed existing approval processes with […]
