They said it wouldn’t happen

They said it wouldn’t happen

Remember all those people (and Republican legislators!) who said the Coordinated Care Organizations weren’t socialized medicine and it wasn’t Obamacare…? Well, while most people were and are rightfully watching gun control bills, along comes HB2922 — which sure looks like it’s bringing socialized medicine to Oregon. Yep. Here it is, HB2922, the “Affordable Health Care […]

Our Lifeline

Our Lifeline

Conservatives seem to be on the defensive, especially here in Oregon. And yet we have a thread of hope–real power given to us–even in the heart of Oregon. Take a listen to today’s I Spy Minute for Friday Nov 16 2012. And then be sure to tune in tomorrow 11 to noon for the I […]

The Inside Story

The Inside Story

It’s always fun to interview a nationally known guest. It’s even better when they bring just a touch of controversy — and a whole lot of insider insight. This week on the I Spy Radio Show: Dr. Jerome Corsi. Can’t quite place him? Two words: “Birth certificate.” Take a listen: I Spy Minute for Friday […]

Obama’s Accounting Gimmicks

Obama’s Accounting Gimmicks

Obama is going to save us all by reducing the deficit by $4 trillion! Sure. And maybe after he leaves office he can try to get a job for the defunct Arthur Andersen account firm that was supposed to be a watchdog for the financial sector. Take a listen: I Spy Minute for Fri Sept […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Yes, Virginia, It’s Obamacare

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Yes, Virginia, It’s Obamacare

Coordiniated Care Organizations were pushed through with HB 3650, and enacted with SB 1580 and SB 1509. Marion County just signed an agreement with a CCO and they’re lurching into a county near you. Proponents of CCOs have been out there saying, CCOs are not Obamacare, that this is “only” about Medicaid. Nothing to see […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obamacare Shoved on Marion County

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obamacare Shoved on Marion County

Have you heard about CCOs? Coordinated Care Organizations? Probably not. But they’re coming to a county near you if you’re in Oregon. The bills where shoved through the legislature under the guise of a “crisis,” that we were out of time, and it would save money. Now Marion County is being pressured to sign on […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – What Transparency?

Podcast: I Spy Minute – What Transparency?

Those involved with the effort to stop the road closures in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest have stopped the process for now but the fear is that the Forest Service can slip the plan through while we’re not looking. And there is a way for them to do just that. It’s amazing the lengths “public servants” […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Grassroots Touchdown

klamathriver

It wasn’t long ago that it looked like the effort to remove four perfectly good hydro-electric dams on the Klamath River was a slam dunk. In fact, Sec. of the Interior, Ken Salazar, proudly proclaimed in 2009 that “The effort to remove the Klamath dams will not fail.” It’s not over yet, but it hit […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Forest Service going EPA?

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Forest Service going EPA?

We all know what “going postal” means. Is the Forest Service “going EPA”? With calls to “crucify” oil producers, it’s clear the EPA has gone off the deep end but now the Forest Service is starting to feel the push of radical environmentalists. And road closures in our national forests are just the start. You […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Drones over the U.S.

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Drones over the U.S.

Once again, the UK Daily Mail does the reporting our own papers used to do (I guess there was probably some new scoop to be had on J-Lo or something). The Mail reported that due to a FOIA request, the FAA was forced to reveal 63 locations from which spy drones were being launched right […]

Podcast: Socialists and their clever name changes

Podcast: Socialists and their clever name changes

Socialists are great at changing their names to disguise their true intentions. Sort of like Ron Artest changing his name to “Metta World Peace”. But every now and then, the reality behind the names show through. Like Obama and the “World Peace Council.” I Spy Minute Mon Apr 23 2012 If you missed the I […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Why Republicans Miss it Once Again on Oil

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Why Republicans Miss it Once Again on Oil

This week on the I Spy Radio Show (www.ispyradio.com) we talked with Dr. Daniel Fine about oil speculators–which do play a big role in driving up oil prices. But it’s not “evil speculators” themselves–like Obama tries to claim–it’s the extremely low margins with which they’re allowed to buy oil. Literally pennies on the dollar–which means […]

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obama’s Partial Truth on Oil Speculators

Podcast: I Spy Minute – Obama’s Partial Truth on Oil Speculators

When Obama spouts off about evil oil speculators, there’s a partial truth to it. It is true that without the market-forces-corrupting influence of the oil speculators, gas prices would drop quickly and dramatically–by at least 35%. But find out what Obama isn’t telling you about those evil speculators. I Spy Minute – Mon., Apr. 16, […]

  • Public policy, the will of the voters, and the Seattle Seahawks September 19, 2017
    “Across all demographics, the 12s are contagious. It’s for everybody.” In this quote, King County Council member Jeanne Kohl-Welles was reflecting on the role of the Seattle Seahawks as a unifying force for the Seattle community. It may be hard to remember for some, particularly the new fans that winning has recruited over the last […]
  • Black Population Trends September 25, 2017
    Between 2015 and 2016, the total population of the San Francisco-Oakland urban area grew by 13,773 people, but the black population shrank by 5,839, suggesting that Bay Area land-use policies continue to push low-income people out of the region by making housing unaffordable. The Austin urban area, to its shame, saw a decline of 4,439 […]
  • More 2016 Commuting Data September 22, 2017
    People who earn more than $75,000 a year are more likely to ride transit than people in any other income bracket. Most of those high-income transit riders live not in big cities like New York or Chicago but in suburbs of those cities. That information is from table B08119 from the 2016 American Community Survey. […]

Median family incomes are in ACS table B19113, while median home prices are in table B25077. To save you time, I’ve downloaded these […]
