OINK! Press Release for Pork Projects in Oregon

The following is how the news release starts out. But what we don’t know is how much will actually go for roads and highways. They tout the use of money for roads but never seemed interested in building more roads before these pork barrel project funds were available. It’s probably going to bike paths. Press the pig to find out where “stimulus” dollars will be spent in your hood. Hey, nice logo. What does that remind of again???

President Obama, Senator Ron Wyden, Senator Jeff Merkley, Representative David Wu, Representative Earl Blumenauer and Representative Kurt Schrader Deliver Millions in Highway Spending to Oregon

Pedophile May Get Parole. Unless You Do Something.

Lake Oswego) “We encourage Oregonians to tell the State Parole Board not to let this dangerous predator out of prison,” said Steve Doell President of Crime Victims United of Oregon. 68-year old William “Hank” Dufort is scheduled for a hearing before the board on Wednesday March 4th. Dufort is serving a 48-year sentence for sexually abusing six teenage boys at the Corvallis Farm Home between 1987 and 1989. Dufort was director at the home.

“We believe Dufort is such a high-risk deceitful predator that no supervision is available to contain his criminal behavior outside of the Oregon Department of Corrections,” said Edie and Doug Richard, parent of one of Dufort’s victims. “We are asking the board to deny parole because the facts show he is a very dangerous repeat criminal and professional predator. The board has a responsibility to protect all children from this individual. It is as simple as that.”

Portland Tax Dollars go to "Sustainability" Programs at Sports Wear Companies

Now you know where your (local) tax dollars are going: programs like the one seen here in the Zero today about how the Portland Development Commission (?!) is giving out grants for the likes of Nike, Columbia Sportswear, REI etc to be “sustainable.”
No, there’s still no working, meaningful definition of the word “sustainable,” but we’re giving money out for it.
PDC says it has given a $30,000.00 grant for the program. $30K isn’t much as bail out money goes, but it strikes me as odd that local tax dollars are being tossed into a federal pot of money for these companies. Weird, no?
Just another case of our money being slowly drained away for programs that have nothing to do with the PDC. Which just goes to prove my axiom: Government believes in “sustainability” until it comes to what’s in your wallet.
