The End Of The Political Career Of Rob Cornilles, And What It Means For The Rest Of The Nation

bonamici wins

Rob Cornilles lost the special election tonight in Oregon’s First Congressional District. He lost in a special election that resulted from a disgraced Democrat resigning amid a second (at least) sexual assault scandal, after previously losing to the disgrace amid the disgrace’s mental breakdown in the 2010 election. He lost to a woman who actively […]

Oregon’s CD1 Replaces Scandal-ridden Wu With Class Warfare Queen Bonamici

120131_suzanne_bonamici_victory

Can’t say I’m surprised. It’s Chris Dudley all over again.  The Republican Establishment in Oregon, like their national counterparts, consistently run under the delusion that the most “moderate,” milquetoast candidate which least offends the Left is the most “electable.”   Then they lose…and inevitably blame the conservative base that held their nose and voted for […]

Takin’ It To The Streets

Takin’ It To The Streets

Some 5,000 anti-abortion protesters rallied in the streets yesterday; Image by Getty Images via @daylife 300 arests were made, and officers earlier fired tear gas to disperse people throwing rocks and tearing down fencing at a convention center. Of course, the arrests and tear-gassing had nothing to do with the assemblage of abortion opponents who gathered at the […]

Oregon TEA Party May Have Protected Portland Landmark From Further Damage by Occupy

Workers repair damaged elk statue downtown, probably damaged by Occupiers.  Actions by the Oregon TEA PArty may have prevented further damage.

Dateline January, 7 2012 Portland OR – Flash.  KATU News is reporting that “The Elk,” an art icon which was situated within the illegal Occupy camp, was quite possibly damaged by the Occupiers!  On November 12, 2011; fetid protestors were forcibly evicted from Chapman and Lownsdale Public Squares by the Portland Police Department.  They had been inhabiting the […]

Daylight Disinfectant Weekend Edition: Occupy Meets TEA Party, Hendrix Style

John Kuzmanich, Chairman of the Oregon TEA Party grooves along with Occupy Musician Trent from Hillsboro

Dateline Portland Oregon – January 6, 2012:  On a weekend marked by “Little Christmas” I had a recollection of one of the more positive moments from the stinking cesspool that was Occupy Portland.  It was a video that I wanted to put up but never found the time.  On October 21, 2011 I had an […]

beau and sam

Jeff Mapes, Democrat Mouthpiece local political reporter for the paper of record, lent an assist yesterday to lame duck Portland Mayor Sam Adams in his attempt to drive all Republicans out of the city limits: Portland Mayor Sam Adams says he is unhappy about Republican plans to hold a presidential debate here in March because […]

Occupy’s Overtures To ‘Find Common Ground’ With The Tea Party Are A Trojan Horse

trojan-horse2

If you talk to some of the young idealists who have jumped on the “Occupy Wall Street” bandwagon, you may be tempted to think that they aren’t so different from the Tea Party, after all. I can sympathize with compassionate conservatives who want to reach out to these disillusioned kids and try and divert their energies towards more […]

sandini_getting_the-drop_on_michael_moore_scaled

The day before Thanksgiving I was the target of a hit piece by Portland Mercury’s News Editor Denis C. Theriault that included half-truths, innuendo and outright lies. Nice timing Denis.  When someone sent me the link I was about to leave for the Oregon coast to spend the holiday with my boyfriend.  I refused to […]

Co-Burn

govt waste

Wastebook 2011 is out. It’s often interesting to see where your tax dollars go. Teletubbies didn’t seem to make the list, but we did spend $10 million for a remake of “Sesame Street” for Pakistan. Isn’t that sweet? All told, a mere $6.5 billion was peed away this year, so apparently, austerity measures are striking hard at the soft […]

    Back in 2010, when the Federal Transit Administration admitted that the transit industry had a $78 billion maintenance backlog, America’s largest transit system seemed to be in the best shape of those with legacy (older than 40 years) rail lines. Having undergone its own crisis in the 1970s, the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority appeared […]
