California “landlord” finds downside of Airbnb

July 28, 2014 in Law

A woman’s Palm Springs condo is like a twisted Hotel California, she can check him in, but he’ll never leave. Airbnb (Air Bed and Breakfast) is a great idea. You rent out your property and make a little money on it while it’s not being used. I’ve successfully used a similar service–FlipKey–for a foreign vacation a few years ago and I briefly considered using Airbnb to occupy our unsold house. A neighbor was using the service and I thought, why not? Now I’m glad I didn’t have to confront that eventuality. In this story,

Portland Palestine protesters chant for Jewish genocide.

July 27, 2014 in Israel, Laughing at Liberals, Portland Mayor, Portland State University

Will Portland’s Office of Equity and Human Rights investigate? “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” As I sat down to watch Laughing at Liberals’ latest excellent video offerings about this weekend’s Free Palestine protests, I have to admit, even I was surprised by the Portland professional protesters. Starting at :48 seconds into the following video you can hear the chant, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” This chant chilled me to the bone. Anyone who knows Hamas, the radical Muslim Brotherhood outpost in Gaza–and

IRS SCANDAL UPDATE: HARD COPIES of some ‘missing’ Lois Lerner emails. You must credit and link VictoriaTaft.com for use of this material.

How to destroy a business in 140 characters. Oh, and tell a friend… And the reaction to this tweet?

Illegal Alien Central Americans: Where are they now?

July 23, 2014 in Uncategorized

10News in San Diego tried to track back where the border crashers have gone. 54% no show rate in court. A follow up report on where the illegal aliens headed to San Diego ended up concludes most of them were given trips to New York, Connecticut and other places with large numbers of Central Americans to, er, stay. “Very few” are still in the San Diego area according to a Rabbi who spoke with 10News. Considering we don’t know how many were here in the first place, that assertion gives little

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.
