The Oregon Myth the New York Times Won’t Report

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.


Nike’s Phil Knight said in 2010, with its recent moves, Oregon could be in an economic death spiral, and, if voters approved two anti business measures on the ballot at the time, would be committing economic assisted suicide. Knight easily could have been talking about any of the multitude of moves made by Oregon leaders over the past 30 – 40 years which put a kibosh on economic growth.

Now some smart people I know have put together an entertaining video showing how Oregon’s leaders have ‘sold out’ some of their most vulnerable citizens. Enjoy it. And tell the New York Times, won’t you?

  1. Victoria,
    Hi Victoria,

    Excellent video!!

    But perhaps not entirely correct, after all Kitzhaber did create a couple jobs. One for Patricia McCaig at the CRC (actually David Evans and Assocs) and the other well that consulting gig for the now nefarious Cylvia Hayes, Oregon’s alleged “first lady”.

  2. This video is spot on. It is exactly the same as what happened in northern California. It seems the elites really don’t care that there are no jobs and they oppose any attempt to generate any economic activity. (I grew up in redwood country.) So all the young people are leaving because the only jobs are tourism related which don’t pay enough to live on.

  3. and why did dennis allow kitzhaber to tout the states fantastic job growth in the last 5 years!!! –

    dennis also said, all of oregon isnt boooming like washington county… is washcounty booming, very few even 30k+ jobs there. Shameful dennis,shameful. Well there are good school teacher jobs, but that is it.

  4. The wrong people are in control of the politics. The windmills are killing eagles and birds. The environmentalist don’t say anything because it would be them against another environmental organization.
    The schools focus more on political agenda’s instead of keeping a simple focus on reading, writing and math. If the politics were removed, it wouldn’t cost as much to teach and it is the reading, writing and math that teach students the skills that are needed to support employers in their employment.
    Political leaders don’t care about people, they care more about their own agenda and having power over those who pay their salaries.
