Oregon. So much to love in the state. A good deal to loathe around Portland, Eugene, and Salem.
Government should be small. Tiny. Basically invisible. We pay for it for crying out loud. It certainly shouldn’t have a PR machine that costs hundreds of millions of dollars. (Especially in Oregon.)
In the welfare state equation it is the middle class that gets screwed. The middle class pays plenty of taxes while the poor and the crony rich use the system paid for by the middle class. (Paid for by the middle class to a large degree and used by the poor and crony rich in their respective ways.)
How about we slash taxes for the middle class massively? Let people keep what they are forced to pay in payroll taxes and income taxes,
It absolutely MUST be noted that COPORATE WELFARE is at least as big as regular welfare. (And needs to be cut.)

The constant, anonymous leaks from disgruntled federal bureaucrats aim to provide ammunition for the propaganda news media to press the attack.
The Left’s dance of destruction is stunningly choreographed.
I have been overseas for the last three days, and it has been sickening to see so many foreigners terrified because they unknowingly believe the news media’s false reports and vicious attacks. The only version of President Trump they know is the one portrayed in the 24-hour cesspool of CNN and the daily acrimony of the New York Times.
Losing Coulter wouldn’t be an entirely bad thing from Trump’s perspective. But it is significant that she is wavering. She did write a book called In Trump We Trust.
Lerner and company want to keep what they did secret. But we need to know what happened.
“This documentation, as the court will see, makes very personal references and contains graphic, profane and disturbing language that would lead to unnecessary intrusion and embarrassment if made public,” their attorneys argued in a recent court brief. “Public dissemination of their deposition testimony would put their lives in serious jeopardy.”
Attorneys for the tea party groups suing the IRS say the argument against full disclosure doesn’t hold up.
We’d like Elon much more if he could break his addiction to crony capitalism. But it seems he can’t, so we can’t like him.
To be clear we like solar – a lot. But crony solar, and that is much of the solar industry, is not OK. It doesn’t matter how “clean” it is.
Worth posting again.
This is Obama “living rich.”
It’s one thing if one makes one’s money in private industry where one must negotiate the whims of the market (at least to some degree) on the way to riches. (Hell, if one inherited money at least one is spending one’s own money.) It is quite another for someone to make one’s bones as a politician like Obama has. As Truman said, one can’t get rich in politics unless one is a crook.
This is great.
I won’t go into details but I know a fair amount about a carbon tax. I even once hosted a discussion on Wall Street in front of business leaders on the topic. All of the people on stage with me were pro-tax. Our readers know where I am on taxes of any sort. I was the moderator.
I am very familiar with the costs of a carbon tax to the economy,
