Blue Collar Oregonians Rise Up Against Dem Governor Kate Brown & Leftist Legislature Over Oppressive Energy Tax Bill

I felt a great disturbance in The Force. As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Energy is productivity. Where have I heard that before? Oh, I know, everywhere. Because it’s true. Now, Oregon’s ‘Democratic’ supermajority, ‘led’ by the quisling Kate Brown, wants to snuff out what’s left of Oregon’s productive, family-wage, blue collar trucking and logging jobs, as well as put the big hurt on every-single-person in the state. How? With a basket of energy taxes that would hit every struggling family like the strike on Alderaan.

Oregon’s planner-class has worked assiduously to create a man-made, coffee and beer swilling, tree-lined, choo-choo riding, organic utopia. But it turns out that even in utopia real people still need jobs. Kate Brown and her fellow-travelers in the legislature would sell out those jobs – those people, those families.

Now, the ‘little people’ are fighting back.

Truckers, loggers and everyday citizens descended for the second time on the state capitol building in Salem this week to plead with the Democrats not to put them out of business with these onerous taxes.

Truckers convoyed to Salem days ago and again on Wednesday to pressure Democrats to see them, listen to them.

According to the Zero, or what’s left of the Oregonian, HB 2020 would cost the working people of Oregon hundreds of dollars a year, in fuel, groceries, offsets, and cooling and heating your home. In short, Oregonians would be taxed on nearly everything so that the swells of Salem can say they’re doing something about the global warming. Yes, those same swells who rail against high rents. Cognitive dissonance, hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.

Saw mills have been shuttered or suffered layoffs while forests are allowed to burn to cinder, emitting more carbon into the air than any Oregon industry has ever loosed. Yet, what do these so-called ‘leaders’ call for? Taxing the little guy to effect whatever climate emergency the Left has conjured up this week.

It was the Left, after all, that decimated the logging industry with its spotted owl fairy tale. Now these same people who are motivated by ‘well, the California cool kids are doing it’ want to drag Oregon into the stupid zone. For what? To get on a panel at Aspen Institute, a free ride on Tom Steyer’s private jet to Davos or be featured in a SxSW on-on-one?

Truckers know all-too-well that if they have to pay higher taxes and their company has to pay for offsets of some kind, that no matter what they haul, it will cost every consumer more.

It’s a joke … and Oregonians are the punchline.

Today, Republican lawmakers of the Oregon Legislature walked out for the second time this session to deny Democrats a necessary quorum to pass oppressive laws.

The desks inside the legislature once occupied by Republicans are empty. Zee pahty has sent the henchmen to find them.

Democrats may not feel it, yet, but there’s been a disturbance in The Force.

More Oregonians are waking up.

And the empty suit at Mahonia Hall should be one of them.

Guess Which Oregon & Washington Democrats Are Boycotting Israeli PM Speech

President has asked Democrats to turn their backs on our Democratic ally in the Middle East.

The people who call for the boycott of Israel because for any number of conjured reasons are once again boycotting Israel as its representative, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaks to a joint session of Congress tomorrow.

The Obama Administration representatives have asked their allies in the Black Congressional Caucus and assorted crack pots (eg. Earl Bow Tie Blumenauer and Baghdad Jim Mc Dermott) members to boycott the Netanyahu speech, because, well — PROTOCOL!!

When it’s pointed out this is the same President who is consorting with Ayatollahs in helping them build a nuclear bomb that would be used against Israel and who gave back the bust of Winston Churchill to the Brits when he took office they say, well, ok then — racism!

Here’s the list of the Congressional Reps who apparently are more afraid of President Obama than of a compromised Israel.

Bow Tie Blumenauer is Baghdad Jim McDermott is Peter Defazio is Bernie Sanders is Keith Ellison is Patrick Leahy is Charlie Rangel.

Please don’t forget when you vote. 

 

 

GOP shuts down federal government with global warming jedi mind tricks.

Well of course they didn’t, but since manyliberal folks hold fast to their faith in man made global warming, will it be long before we’ll see those kinds of headlines? Seriously, Washington DC is currently shut down because of frozen man made global warming. Due to Republicans being blamed for any shutdown of government, could it be long before we’ll be regaled by these kinds of tales?

The Tea Party is Crazy and Racist. Read This and Find Out Why.

It’s fashionable now to simply dismiss as nutty the people who ally with back to basics views: Fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. It’s only been recently that those solid American values have been labeled as crazy and racist by Democrats. 

Do I believe all Democrats believe those values are nutty? Naw. Just the ones engaged with the political process and influential in the Obama Administration. See, the idea is that if you besmirch and label your detractors, ala Saul Alinsky, pretty soon the labels will permeate the political water table.

It’s working. 

I’ve had discussions with intelligent, but uninformed people who believe this stuff. I’ve been told to distance myself from these values because aligning with “Tea Party” values is impacting my ability to get a job.

So, knowing that these otherwise intelligent people don’t have any significant  time to do any research on their own, here, in short bites, is a the brief and rocky overview of the Tea Party and why they’re racist and crazy.

THE TEA PARTY IS CRAZY AND RACIST By Victoria Taft
