The New World Wars

The New World Wars

Forget The Bionic Man, and don’t be worrying about anthrax. The future of warfare is evolutionary, and it’s a lot closer than you’d think – if, indeed, it hasn’t already begun: The most realistic future biomods apocalypse is one in which a hostile foreign government or terror group finds ways to subtly change a lot of people.

An Apology to Our Founding Fathers

Us_declaration_independence

    My buddy Laurin posted this note on Facebook today, and I found it compelling enough to repost. Dear Founding Fathers: I’m sorry that after all we have been through as a nation that we cannot see when something is wrong under our very eyes. I’m sorry that we have become so dependent on […]

Humanitarian Aid

Humanitarian Aid

Imagine having your leg ripped apart by a roadside bomb. The skin can be healed over time, but much of the muscle is just gone. You have to use a cane, or a walker, to get around. Now imagine that it can be fixed. As it turns out, with regenerative therapy, it can. But an experimental […]

U.S. as supplicant or strong nation? It is our choice!

Yesterday, as you know, was the eleventh anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks perpetrated against our nation by Jihadist radicals that murdered over 3,000 people from around the globe in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I remember President George W. Bush, like him or not, standing up with a bullhorn talking about how […]

Coming Soon To Portland

They know what’s in your trash, they know what you eat, they know how often you bring your recycles to the curb — and they may be coming to your town soon. That is, if they’re not already there. In a growing number of cities across the U.S., local governments are placing computer chips in recycling bins […]

The Grass-roots Celebration

And the Occufails have a poster for that. Because of course, police should be beheaded. And you wondered why they were meeting in Tehran, of all places? We told you why, here. Fascism is very similar to communism, although where communism exerts naked authority, fascism covers it in a thin veneer of illusion: an iron fist inside […]

Loose The Dogs Of War

Loose The Dogs Of War

“Let us remember that if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it.” – Samuel Adams Therein lies a pithy assessment, penned nearly240 years ago, that defines our situation today. We have endured attack after attack; thus encouraging more of the same. The attacks have been underway for decades, but it […]

Greater Protection, Mobility For Warriors, Police

Greater Protection, Mobility For Warriors, Police

The liquid metal body armor widely popularized in the movie, “Terminator 2″ is now in production at BAE. Conventional body armor, consisting of Kevlar and ceramic plates, is not only heavy, but impedes mobility. Moreover, as it doesn’t disperse impact, a direct hit can still result in serious injury. The new liquid metal immediately hardens upon impact, […]

  • House Democrat introduces bill highlighting job training needs in rural counties March 22, 2017
    Washington Republicans have been identifying themselves as the party representing rural voters. They make those arguments when talking about water rights as it relates to the Hirst Decision. They talk about it when they discuss expanding telemedicine. They talk about it when they criticize the carbon tax as regressive and likely to hit rural commuters. […]
  • Gov. Jay Inslee criticizes Senate’s proposed cuts to Western State Hospital March 22, 2017
    This article is crossposted on State of Reform, a health policy news site.  Gov. Jay Inslee came out strongly against the Senate Majority Coalition Caucus’ proposed budget for the 2017-2019 biennium and highlighted the suggested cuts to Western State Hospital. The MCC would increase funding to mental health care by $250 million, but they focus those […]
  • Senate transportation budget faces criticism at public hearing for proposed actions on collective bargaining March 21, 2017
    Leaders in Washington transportation expressed their support or opposition to the Senate’s proposed transportation budget Tuesday afternoon. The budget appropriates $8.4 billion for the upcoming 2017-2019 biennium, and projects higher revenue coming in than the past biennium.

  • Transit Ridership Down 2.3% in 2016 March 23, 2017
    With little fanfare, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) released its fourth quarter 2016 ridership report last week. When ridership goes up, the lobby group usually issues a big press release ballyhooing the importance of transit (and transit subsidies). But 2016 ridership fell, so there was no press release. The report showed that light-rail ridership […]
  • Did Nader Really Call Apple a Monopoly? March 22, 2017
    “Consumer advocate Ralph Nader, concerned about fake news prevalent on social media sites, believes Congress should weigh in with antitrust legislation targeting Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Apple,” reports the Washington Examiner. Say what? Just what do Microsoft and Apple have to do with so-called fake news? How are any of these companies monopolies? Is Ralph […]
  • Portland Housing Stupidity Grows March 21, 2017
    Here’s an incredibly stupid idea to deal with Portland’s housing affordability problems: Multnomah County proposes to build tiny houses in people’s backyard. The people will get to keep the houses on the condition that they allow homeless people to live in them for five years. That’s supposed to be an incentive. For five years, you […]
