Daylight Dissed! Oregonian Trots Out Smear Expert To Attack Citizen Journalist.

Oregonian reporter Harry Esteve smeared City of Springfield. Had to apologize on TV and in print.

You have to laugh about the Oregonian trotting out their most egregious hit-piece artist to attack me because I caught Governor Kitzhaber … wait for it … shopping for eggplant!  I ran into the Governor while he was at shopping at QFC and YouTubed the bizarre coincidence for laughs, and because well, it’s my First Amendment […]

Oregon Governor, Portland Mayor, Lawmakers Push For Gun Restrictions

Kitzhaber Seeks Special Legislative Session To Accommodate Nike – Other Oregon Businesses, Not So Much

Why should Nike get special treatment?   What about the thousands of small businesses and family farms that are struggling to survive under Oregon’s burdensome taxes, regulations and bureaucracy?  Don’t THEY deserve a break, too?   Or do only Democrat cronies with friends in high places get the relief they need to expand, grow, and […]

Things Look Different Here

Having solved all other problems, activists in Clatsop County are pushing to ban elephants lions, tigers, primates, and an array of other animals from exhibition or performance.

Guest Post: Oregon Rep. Dennis Richardson (R-04) Discusses The State Budget Rebalancing

Crisis in Oregon Budget Rebalance? The rumors in the State Capitol and news media this week were that the Governor had torpedoed the Legislature’s Budget Rebalance Plan and the fragile agreement between the Democrat and Republican Co-Chairs of the Ways & Means Committee was in jeopardy. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Legislature […]

Oregon’s education “transformation” means “a lot more money” but not much reform

school budget

“Transformation” is the word of the year in the Oregon Legislature.  Not only is the Legislature looking for ways to transform Oregon’s healthcare delivery system and jump  head first into Obamacare, the legislature is sprinting toward the finish line to transform Oregon’s education system from pre-school to post-grad. The Oregonian reports on the legislature’s progress […]

Oregon’s healthcare “transformation”: What is a Coordinated Care Organization, and will it save money?

ungovernable

Oregon’s governor has a plan to “transform” the delivery of health care in the state.  At first blush, it seems that the state will jettison its experiment with the Oregon Health Plan that made headlines two decades ago with its rationing of services. It looks more and more likely, however, that the new plan will look much […]

  • Hirst could be the tipping point for state’s endangered rural Democrats June 22, 2017
    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]
  • Budget stalemate puts state’s financial reputation at risk June 21, 2017
    It takes a lot of time and dedication to build a good reputation but it takes only one bad choice to destroy it in an instant. As state treasurer, I carry this lesson with me every day as I work with other state officials and dedicated treasury staff to manage our state’s finances in a […]

  • The Transit Apocalypse June 22, 2017
    With declining ridership, growing costs, and increasing competition, the nation’s transit industry is on the verge of complete collapse. The trends leading to this collapse appear to be permanent, yet transit officials across the country are pretending they are only temporary. Instead of preparing for the collapse, they are simply seeking more subsidies. The Antiplanner […]
  • Response to Congestion Report June 21, 2017
    Two weeks ago, the Center of the American Experiment published a report by the Antiplanner showing that traffic congestion in Minneapolis-St. Paul was the deliberate result of the region’s Metropolitan Council’s plans to increase congestion in order to get more people to ride transit, walk, or bicycle.
