Oregon Environmental Commission Targets Fossil Fuels

84940461

If it’s successful, convenient, inexpensive, and makes our lives better, environmentalists want to kill it.  They won’t be happy until we’re all back in utopian bark hut villages, walking on dirt paths, illuminated only by moonlight. The Oregonian reports: Oregon’s Environmental Quality Commission voted 4-1 today to require fuel distributors to begin reporting the carbon content of […]

Will Obama Let the U.N. Seize The Internet?

who.controls.internetx519

It’s disgusting that we even have to ask such a question regarding an American president, but Obama’s certainly no friend to free speech or keeping American sovereignty safe from foreign control. The world’s tyrants would love nothing more than to get control of the one place where international free speech still exists. Leo Kelion reports […]

View at Fox News  A man who has collected rainwater in ponds on his property for fire protection for 37 years is now suddenly on his way to jail.  Why?  Because the state of Oregon claims ownership of all water – even the rain that falls on your private property. Kendra Alleyne reports at CNS […]

Rules, Regulations, Economy, and Your Life

Rules, Regulations, Economy, and Your Life

As you may have noticed, the economy isn’t really going anywhere – it doesn’t matter what the government tells you, you see it all around you. It’s dead, Jim. With all the blather about “job creation”, constantly trumpeted by every candidate for every office, including dog-catcher, why isn’t it happening? One word: Government. As Ronald […]

  • Hirst could be the tipping point for state’s endangered rural Democrats June 22, 2017
    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]
  • Budget stalemate puts state’s financial reputation at risk June 21, 2017
    It takes a lot of time and dedication to build a good reputation but it takes only one bad choice to destroy it in an instant. As state treasurer, I carry this lesson with me every day as I work with other state officials and dedicated treasury staff to manage our state’s finances in a […]

  • New Driving Data June 23, 2017
    The Federal Highway Administration has just released urban highway statistics for 2015, including the miles of roads and daily vehicle miles of driving by road type and “selected characteristics” for each urban area, including population, land area, freeway lane miles, and similar information. These data are quite useful as they allow interregional comparisons as well […]
  • The Transit Apocalypse June 22, 2017
    With declining ridership, growing costs, and increasing competition, the nation’s transit industry is on the verge of complete collapse. The trends leading to this collapse appear to be permanent, yet transit officials across the country are pretending they are only temporary. Instead of preparing for the collapse, they are simply seeking more subsidies. The Antiplanner […]
  • Response to Congestion Report June 21, 2017
    Two weeks ago, the Center of the American Experiment published a report by the Antiplanner showing that traffic congestion in Minneapolis-St. Paul was the deliberate result of the region’s Metropolitan Council’s plans to increase congestion in order to get more people to ride transit, walk, or bicycle. The Antiplanner quoted Met Council documents saying that […]
