Earlier this week, 2 innocent people were killed and another seriously wounded by a madman who opened fire in the Clackamas Town Center mall.

BenUnger

In the just released video Ben Unger addressing the Bus Project kids, Mr. Unger makes several claims and proposals. Let’s examine the video: First off, he says we should vote for him so he’ll go down and fight for better funding and lower class sizes.

The Soft Bigotry Of Low Expectations – Portlandia Shows Its Liberal Racism Again

PBJ

As we’ve seen throughout this nation’s history, the vast majority of bigotry and institutional racism comes from the American Left, not the Right. Whether it’s Jim Crow Laws, the KKK, eugenics or the defense of slavery, the Democrats and the Far Left have a rich historical tapestry spun with the fiber of racial prejudice. Now […]

  • Column: States rights across the aisle February 22, 2017
    It’s not unusual for political dynamics to shift as political powers shift at the federal level. But the dynamics are changing pretty quickly as we enter the second month of President Donald Trump’s administration. Notably, Democratic governors and mayors have been defending their values and speaking for their constituents with an argument often used by […]
  • Democrats call, again, for action on ‘levy cliff’ February 22, 2017
    Some school districts may have to send out pink slips if the state legislature doesn’t pass the Democrats’ “levy cliff” bill, argued Democratic leadership at their weekly press conference Tuesday. “I’m hearing from superintendents too,” said Rep. Kristine Lytton, Anacortes, at the press conference. “They are trying to dig into the complexity of the senate […]
  • GOP leaders defend education funding plan, criticize Democrats’ plan February 21, 2017
    After facing criticism for their budget plan, Republican leaders defended their education funding proposal Monday at a press conference, and made their own criticisms of the Democrat’s levy cliff bill.

  • Free for a Limited Time Four More Years February 22, 2017
    Washington DC’s H Street streetcar has failed in just about every way possible. The 2.2-mile line cost $200 million, which is enough to build ten to twenty miles of four-lane freeway; it opened years behind schedule; and–despite being free “for a limited time”–it carries a paltry 2,400 people per weekday, which in a sane world […]
  • Congestion Cost U.S. $295 Billion in 2016 February 21, 2017
    Speaking of congestion (as the Antiplanner was yesterday), a new congestion scorecard from Inrix estimates that congestion cost America $295 billion in 2016, which is more than 1.5 percent of 2016 GDP. Where the Texas Transportation Institute’s previous estimates of congestion costs counted only the cost to commuters, Inrix adds costs to consumers who must […]
  • Good News and Bad News February 20, 2017
    Good news: The United States had 56,000 structurally deficient bridges in 2016. That’s good news because the number in 2015 was nearly 59,000. In fact, the number has declined in every year since 1992 (the earliest year for which records are available), when it was 124,000. The American Road and Transportation Builders thinks 2016’s number […]
