OPERATION ID: Day 11 and Carousel of Crime Update

Don’t you love it? They changed the date of the carousel of crime again. They’re so tricky! See the info below.

State Representative Kim Thatcher has sent in HER OP ID letter, have you?

Imagine if the Oregon government did its job and didn’t give out state benefits, driver’s licenses, and actually checked to make sure the voter rolls weren’t full of non citizens. The Wall Street Journal has done a story about what happens when local authorities begin doing their (and ICE’s) job.

The Eugene protest of the “Carousel De Informacion” or Matricula Card ID giveaway by the Mexican Consulate for Illegal Aliens and subsequent Tax Payer Handouts, has been moved to Saturday, February 11th (one week later than original date).
Please tell everyone about this change of dates. All 3 Republican candidates for Governor are addressing this issue, finally. We need to show up and keep the heat on. The wax in their ears is starting to melt. Rick Hickey – VP-OFIR www.oregonir.org

The Toles Cartoon…Update


The one the joint chiefs wrote to complain about.

“While you or some of your readers may not agree with the war or its conduct, we believe you owe the men and women and their families who so selflessly serve our country the decency to not make light of their tremendous physical sacrifices.”

Here’s an update on the flap.

The Tram Scam: Scrap it




Oh for heaven’s sake. $15m, $28m, $35m, $45m, now $55m, later $???????
But private auditors say we’re past the point of no return? Howzat again?

I was just up at OHSU and down at south waterfront this morning and while there may be some preliminary footings– maybe– no part of the tram has been built. Yes, fabricating contracts have been signed, but you can get out of them although it won’t be pretty. Plus, the city has an cancellation/out clause it can invoke. Yes, engineering money has been spent. Let me ask you, if engineering and preliminary clearing of the site had started on the baseball stadium for instance, and the city was on the hook for an unknown amount of money in future construction costs, with what we know of Tom Potter’s love of the game– “I’d love to throw out the first ball!” Uh…that’s first pitch, Tom– do you think he would hesitate to pull the plug?
