July 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

The effort is underway demonize another way to keep you warm because fires “contribute to global warming”  and are as “toxic as cigarettes” Woodstoves may be as toxic as cigarettes http://t.co/itv7Y7a83v — Oregon Env. Council (@oeconline) July 22, 2014 Environmentalists have begun a new and unsavory comparison of fires to smoking cigarettes. It’s an attempt to make it easier to draw an equivalence between things that you enjoy but that may be bad for you and things you need–such as warmth. And then make it all about us. And the upshot? When you’re done

Two rulings, one day. ObamaCare to head to the Supremes. Again.

July 22, 2014 in Government, ObamaCare, OrBamaCare, Oregon, Supreme Court

ObamaCare says what it says. That’s what a three judge panel in the DC circuit court of appeals has basically said as much in a ruling today. In a two-to-one ruling, the judges said the ObamaCare subsidy doesn’t apply to people who sign up on the federal health insurance exchanges, only state exchanges because that’s what the law says. The federal government says it will ask the full first circuit to review the case. In the meantime, people who signed up with the federal government and qualified for subsidies, including those in

Anthony Bourdain is debriefed by Blogs of War and it’s a smash!

July 21, 2014 in Media

“Find myself in Beirut during the 2006 war was clearly a defining moment for the show–and some kind of crossroads for me personally.” Food, culture, conflict are things with which chef, author and restauranteur Anthony Bourdain must contend in producing his TV shows, “No Reservations” and “Parts Unknown.” The brutish, chain smoking and potty mouthed host glowers his way through his shows but his sensitivity to his hosts is never far from his mind.  I used to think that basically, the whole world, that all humanity were basically bastards. I’ve since

Portland, San Francisco among most expensive for health care

July 17, 2014 in Uncategorized

Forbes’ wallet biopsy: Portland and San Francisco are among the priciest cities for health care Did anyone notice Forbes’ list of most expensive cities in America for health care are also among the most liberal? Now I don’t know what kind of connection one can make with that coincidence, but I’m sure some certified smart guy will drill down to figure it out. Perhaps it will have something to do with government workers and access to insurance with little to no co-pays resulting in what President Obama might call “overuse.”  Seven

Numbers USA reports Portland area will be site for illegal aliens brought from Central America. The Central American illegal alien story now centers on Portland, Oregon.

Portland is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens and caters to populations of non citizens from special health centers to illegal alien day labor centers.    A Portland area concerned citizen contacted pro legal immigration group Numbers USA to verify its

Oregonian: “Ramirez-Ramirez did not have a valid driver’s license. [C]ited for driving while suspended.” “Car wash employee cited after crashing customer’s SUV into 4 other vehicles in Beaverton.”  We’ve taken a vote at my house and have ruled Juan Ramirez-Ramirez was having a very, very bad day. Sadly, the woman who was injured in one of the five vehicles cracked up at the Beaverton Car Wash was having a worse one, because Juan’s problem with the accelerator sent her to the hospital. From the Oregonian, Juan Ramirez-Ramirez, 34, of Beaverton,
