George_Soros_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2010

As Democratic Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber’s announced resignation approaches – set for 10am on Wednesday, February 18 – it’s time to examine his successor. Democratic Secretary of State Kate Brown, by all appearances, is further to the Left politically than even Kitzhaber was. She also enjoys some of the same liberal billionaire connections that Kitzhaber […]

[5440 note: Making sure Republicans lose, originally published at the whitestick papers. Reprinted by permission of the author.] Almost since its founding in the late 1850’s, the Republican Party has been plagued by internal strife. It’s a party of moral righteousness (and, often, self-righteousness) that takes founding principles very, very seriously. Clashes between firebrand ideologues […]

Liberal Tolerance On Display – Gracious In Victory, As Always

You may recall the Oregon businessman who took offense to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” quote and put a large sign in his shop window stating, “Hey Obama, I built my business by myself, you lousy incompetent excuse for a President.” Provocative, to be sure. But understandable, given this President’s insistence on continuing the politics […]

Keep the Faith

Keep the Faith Header

If there ever was a time to start a movement, that time has come. Did we really think that our everlasting freedom would be won by a few funny tweets, a handful of hashtag hijacks, and a charismatic duo in Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan? To believe that freedom could be won so easily does […]

Will Ferrell Title

Will Ferrell will grovel on a billiards table, wearing a lounge suit made from the finest threads, as long as you agree to vote for Barack Obama.

Biden_Obama

In a recent report, the Congressional Research Service revealed that welfare spending has increased by 33% under Barack Obama, topping out at over $1 Trillion annually.

If the Romney campaign flagrantly violated the law in this manner, I can guarantee the Justice Department would be all over it, and it would be front page news for a week.   But if a Democrat does it, they shrug their shoulders and look the other way. The New York Post reports: The Obama […]

The resulting bus service would be far more frequent than […]

    USA Today thinks the federal government needs to spend more on infrastructure.
