I am tired of Congress being blamed in the Press for every Washington, DC transgression. I've heard nothing but blame cast at Congress for the alleged disaster awaiting us on the upcoming sequestration cuts, especially those directly impacting Portland’s Rose Festival like the pending elimination of the US Fleet visit an

H/T Gateway Pundit “The arrogance of their superiority requires this reminder: They don’t rule us. They don’t give us rights. We grant them power. They don’t make us safe.  We pay to protect them. They don’t make us free. We’re free already. And as long as we have the Second Amendment, we always will be.

WWE character Jack Swagger (yeah, me neither) has now recreated himself as a  "Tea Party" character.  The new "Jack Swagger" was reintroduced to WWE Raw last night. He talks about the Constitution, waves a Gadsden flag, lauds the Declaration of Independence and, as an added bonus, he and his corner man have decided to fr

In January we learned of the Facebook “catfishing” scam that had hooked Notre Dame star linebacker Manti’ Te’o into believing his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, whom he had never met, had tragically died.  We later learned that Kekua was actually a fake hoax, perpetrated by a man named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. Many skepti

Source: American Enterprise Institute I just heard a supposedly respected voice for business make the most ignorant comment about minimum wage. Indeed he endorsed the President's call for a $9.00/hr min wage saying that the current minimum wage wasn't enough to 'sustain a family.' The comment was made with an incredulous g

Oregon State Representative Lew Frederick says efforts to hang on to Bill of Rights gun rights and rebuff efforts to curb those rights are all about Barack Obama being re-elected.  In other words, if you support your Constitutional right to "keep and bear arms" and are against efforts to curb those rights, you're a racist.

The week-long manhunt for alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner has come to a fiery end in the smoldering ruins of a vacation cabin east of Los Angeles. Good – none too soon. Dorner murdered four people in cold blood, and, if reports of his demise hold up, his death saves already tapped-out California taxpayers the cost o

 Governor Kitzhaber thinks he looks cool and mavericky when he wears his jeans and jacket with  elbow patches, but it's just self involvement and boorishness when you wear your uniform to the State of the Union address and sit with the FLOTUS.  Even Ted Nugent removed his hat. That's him sitting next to Pink Martini'

It was January 30th at 5:03 PM at night when the earthquake hit. I live 13 miles south of the epicenter that was in Amboy, Washington. For those of you who don’t know the geography of the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area, that is northeast of the Vancouver mall. I was watching a movie with my daughter Anna and at firs
