I am most proud of the contributors who have agreed to post their stories at 54°40’ Or Fight! We now have 21 active contributors from around the State of Oregon. Several veteran […]

No excuse not to be involved this week. There’s the protest rally during the president’s visit, and US Fish & Wildlife wants your input on their grand ideas to take land from private property owners.

Oregon Education Association Isn’t Hiding It Anymore, Brags About Teaming With Occupy And Socialists

REA members join Occupy Portland

We’ve previously pointed out that the teacher strikes in East Multnomah County have been coordinated behind the scenes with Occupy Portland and the International Socialists Organization: Oregon Save Our Schools – Affiliated With Socialists And Occupy? At first, it appeared that the OEA wanted at least to maintain some separation for the purposes of plausible […]

Occupy Seattle, Mayor, Top Cop Deserve Heat

By now you’ve all seen the videos of the melee that took place in downtown Seattle last week. But how did this all come to pass? I attended the Seattle May Day for one major reason; Mayor Mike McGinn warned of violence, stating that he and the police had advanced intelligence that things could very […]

Occupy Catholics!

Occupy Catholics!

Evidently not content with simply alienating Jews, the Obama administration has moved against Catholics as well, stating flatly that there are no “constitutional rights issues” associated with their requirement that all health-care plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including those that induce abortions. That this fiat amounts to federal intervention into the free […]

That Explains The Sirens

That Explains The Sirens

So-called Occuturds were littering downtown Portland again last night; ostensibly in support of Freedom in Egypt. You have to love their deep understanding of local, national, and international events. About four of them were arrested during their celebration of freedom in Egypt, and it’s clear that the country over there pays considerable attention to the antics […]

Dateline Portland Oregon, January 18, 2011 – Lock up the kids honey, Occupy Portland is on the move again.  I have been doing Citizen Journalism for about a year and a half  now.  File this one under whatever the heck you want:  I have officially seen it all.  In a bizarre creepy twist to the so-called “movement,” […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Portland Mercury’s Attack on Citizen Journalism: Setting the Record Straight

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 […]

  • State senator asks U.S. AG to intervene in King County’s safe-injection site plan February 17, 2017
    As King County officials work to open two safe-injection sites, state Sen. Mark Miloscia, R-Federal Way, is working at the state and federal level to block the sites. Miloscia’s bill that would ban sites where heroin users can safely inject around medical professionals, has passed out of committee, according to a press release from his office. […]
  • Column: Doug Ericksen is being too cute by half February 17, 2017
    The idea that someone can serve as a sitting state senator during the legislative session and hold down a full-time job on the side is ludicrous on its face to anyone remotely familiar with the duties of a state legislator. That’s why there has been no shortage of critiques of Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, attempting […]
  • Column: Inslee and the White House, or why we have a federal system February 17, 2017
    The parlor game of thinking through future elections can be entertaining.  I advocated for Jay Inslee to run for President in 2015, for example, in a column that drew private comments from both my left and my right of the “Are you serious?” sort. And, with the recent court battles led by AG Bob Ferguson […]
  • 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 […]
  • The Economic Implications of Housing Supply February 17, 2017
    A new paper with the above title by urban economists Edward Glaeser and Joseph Gyourko provides more evidence to back up the Antiplanner’s recent paper on the New Feudalism. One of the major points of that paper was that the Obama administration’s plan to force suburbs to relax zoning codes to allow higher density housing […]
