Oregon Listed As One Of Worst States For Unemployed

20130117_unemp_0

Thanks to leftist policies, the current unemployment rate in Oregon is stuck at a pathetic 8.4%, a rate that we haven’t gone below since November of 2008 – more than 4 years ago. Joblessness has become the new normal in Oregon, which is why Bloomberg listed us in the top 20 WORST states to live […]

Clueless Liberals Blame, Boycott Businesses Forced To Lay Off Employees Due To Obamacare

layoff_360_303

Small Business Owner on Obamacare: Every Restaurant You Eat At Is Impacted Negatively View on YouTube It’s so sad to read these tweets from small business owners who are heartbroken at having to lay off employees because of Obamacare mandates.   Unfortunately, now they have to suffer harassment from clueless liberals who actually think that business […]

Going Galt: Businesses Begin Laying Off Workers, Cutting Hours, Shutting Doors

Any business that has more than 50 employees is required to purchase health insurance for their employees or pay hefty fines, so many are now downsizing or refusing to expand beyond 49 employees. Also, in order to avoid the increasing cost of purchasing insurance for full-time employees, many small businesses will be forced to cut their […]

Obama to Entrepreneurs and Business Owners: ‘You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.’

SmallBusiness

Spoken like the clueless elitist that he is. The Blaze has the transcipt: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back.  They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.  You didn’t get there on your own.  […]

Clueless Obama: ‘The private sector is doing fine’

obamajunkfood

Looks like Obama forgot about the recession again. In a press conference, Obama stated that “the private sector is doing fine.”  Really?   Try telling that to over 20 million unemployed Americans. Nicholas Ballasy reports at the Daily Caller: In a Friday press conference at the White House, President Barack Obama told reporters that “the […]

Obama: ‘Sometimes I Forget’ the Magnitude of the Recession

klamathriver

Oh yes, he did. At a campaign event in Seattle, Obama said that sometimes he forgets about the magnitude of the recession.  I suppose that’s easy to do when you’re busy campaigning full time on the taxpayer’s dime, jetting around on Air Force One, attending swank fundraising dinners for “the 1%,”  taking multiple exotic vacations […]

Euro Crisis Destroying Families: Greek Parents Abandoning Children In Record Numbers

1greeces-abandoned-children

Liberals insist that the Socialist Welfare State is all about “compassion,” especially “for the children.”   But here is where their well-intentioned policies lead: an economy entirely decimated by reckless government spending, unsustainable debt, and multiple generations brought up to be dependent upon the Nanny State with nowhere else to turn. Not only will today’s […]

Predictions and Resolutions for the New Year

2012scary

Predictions for 2012: Egypt and Syria will fall to Islamic radicals. Israel will be forced to strike Iran. The Muslim world will retaliate and become more aggressive in Europe. The Euro will collapse or the European Union will jettison its weaker members. Either way, shock waves will be felt across the global economy. China will […]

Does “Buying Local” Really Help Local Economies?

Does “Buying Local” Really Help Local Economies?

It’s a sentiment based on admirable goals: supporting local jobs and businesses.   But the push to shop locally is also partly based on a fundamental misunderstanding of how economics works. So before you reject “big box stores” out of hand as immoral marketplace bullies who gobble up their mom and pop competition, take the […]

Oregon’s Unions Extract Raises From Overburdened Taxpayers During Worst Recession Since Great Depression

Oregon’s Unions Extract Raises From Overburdened Taxpayers During Worst Recession Since Great Depression

Oregon’s unemployment rate remains at a painful 9.5 percent.  1 in 5 Oregonians is on food stamps.  Oregon taxpayers and job creators are being squeezed for every last dime to maintain an unsustainable spending addiction. But as the state suffers from a lagging economy, overburdened taxpayers and billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities threatening bankruptcy, Governor […]

  • Wyble: Why “Keep Seattle.” April 28, 2017
    For so many people that moved to Seattle, they can vividly remember the first time they came across the floating bridge or landed at Sea-Tac. They can remember the city skyline rising in the distance as they got closer to downtown. They can remember the sense of possibility as they were starting a new job, […]
  • Reps. McCaslin and Taylor release statement following governor’s partial veto of school siting bill April 26, 2017
    In a surprise move earlier today, Gov. Jay Inslee vetoed section one of Rep. Bob McCaslin’s House Bill 1017, which would authorize the construction of schools and school facilities outside of designated urban growth areas. The governor’s veto means the bill will now only affect school districts in Pierce County. “It’s a shame the governor, despite his continued talk of […]

  • IRS Tax Fraud Prevention Program Costs Taxpayers $18.2 Million, But Doesn’t Work April 29, 2017
    An Internal Revenue Service program designed to prevent fraud costs taxpayers roughly $18.2 million per year, but doesn’t work, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste.

  • Reason #5 to Stop Subsidizing Transit:Social & Environmental Benefits Are Negligible April 28, 2017
    Public transit helps the poor, saves energy, and cleans the air, right? Not really. Transit is a subsidy to the wealthy as much as it is to the poor, and it really isn’t any greener than driving. Some low-income people ride transit, but the people most likely to use transit to get to work are […]
  • Only the Government April 27, 2017
    Only the government would complain when the number of customers using one of its services grows. At least, that’s the case with an article about the increase in freight traffic as UPS, FedEx, and other shipping companies make more deliveries due to on-line sales. Supposedly, a “siege of delivery trucks is threatening to choke cities […]
  • Reason #4 to Stop Subsidizing TransitCities Need Low Taxes More Than Transit April 26, 2017
    Transit advocates like to claim that transit is somehow crucial to urban vitality, even in cities where only a few people use it. The reality is that lower taxes play a bigger role in urban growth–and spending more on transit means higher taxes. Transit almost certainly is crucial to New York City, where 58 percent […]
