Americans Can No Longer Afford Détente With The Socialist Left

PHO-10Mar22-213187

When Ronald Reagan burst onto the political scene, he threw détente out […]

Obamacare: Don’t Get Mad, Get To Work.

We took a beating.  Now it’s time to give as good as we’ve gotten, and more! Yates Walker warns at the Daily Caller: Some pundits are drawing comparisons between our current political climate and that of America just before the civil war. They’re wrong. This isn’t 1859. It’s 1775. A government is a reflection of […]

Tea Party Logo

Grassroots Tea Party activists, most of whom had never been involved in politics prior to 2008, have already begun taking back the Republican party from the local level.  Some have even managed to take over the party leadership at the county and state level, and run successful campaigns like we saw in 2010.   Still, […]

  • Water and budget, breakfast podcast, NWIRP May 15, 2017
    Welcome to candidate filing week, where like MLB Opening Day, hope springs eternal!  Unfortunately, the Mariners are now farther back in the AL West than they have been at this point in the season since 2004.  A word of wisdom perhaps to candidates from the M’s: not everything goes according to plan during a campaign. […]

  • Sometimes the Answer Is “Yes” May 22, 2017
    As the Antiplanner has noted before, Betteridge’s law states that “Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no.” But there are always exceptions, and one can be found above a recent Seattle Times article about a recent light-rail ballot measure, asking “Did Sound Transit mislead legislators and voters?” […]
  • Making the Problem Worse May 18, 2017
    Oregon is responding to its housing affordability crisis by doing all the wrong things. The crisis is due to a shortage in supply which in turn is due to urban-growth boundaries. So the legislature legalized inclusionary zoning ordinances and Portland passed one. Such ordinances require developers to provide a certain percent of the homes they […]
  • How About Just Tear Them Down May 18, 2017
    Business Insider must have been channeling some urban planning magazine last week when it asked what could be done with the hundreds of shopping malls suffering from the great retail apocalypse caused by Amazon and other on-line retailers. The publication’s answers leaned heavily to uses that need government subsidies, including art galleries, classrooms, community gathering […]
