Did Your State Raise Its Minimum Wage Today?

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Well, way to go lefties! Now the price of eggs and milk and, well just about EVERY FREAKIN’ THING at the grocery store is going to go up in price! Not to mention the cost of a Big Mac, or Whopper or etc… At the stroke of midnight today, 19 states increased their minimum wage. Residents of three more and the nation’s capital can expect hikes later on this year. A year ago, the White House and Democratic lawmakers embarked on a campaign to make the minimum wage a defining issue in the 2014 elections. And although […]

Athiests Demand the War memorial Be Removed, Then Someone Tries to Blow it up With an IED

Someone sure doesn’t like crosses… Via Todd Starnes: Someone tried to blow up a war memorial cross that a prominent atheist group wanted removed from a public park in Coos Bay, Ore., an attorney for the city told Fox News. An official statement on the city’s website called it an act of “criminal mischief” and stated that an ”unknown person(s) vandalized the memorial with an improvised explosive device.” “We unfortunately are now to the point where explosive devices are being placed next to crosses,” said Hiram Sasser, director of litigation at the Liberty Institute. The Texas-based Liberty Institute was hired by the […]

Libs Throw Anti-Gun Rally in Eugene Oregon: 20 Show Up

Yeah, Gun control must be super popular, when the libs can only get 20 people to show up for an anti-gun rally.  Weasel Zippers has more… Via Washington Times: A rally supporting a ban on “assault weapons” in Eugene, Ore., failed to draw the attention of the community Saturday afternoon, with only about 20 people in attendance, including the media. Mayor Kitty Piercy also attended the rally at the Eugene Wayne Morris Free Speech Plaza, which was hosted by Ceasefire Oregon. […] The Examiner reports that there was very little enthusiasm in the crowd, which was “bordering on complacency.” It notes that the […]

Media Bias: Media Never Reported That Oregon Mall Shooting Stopped by Armed Citizen

While the country was in a state of shock over the events at the Sandy Hook school shooting, the MSM was crying for gun control   In fact, they were doing so when even the earliest reports of that shooting were coming out.  However, they had an earlier shooting that very week, at an Clackamas, Oregon shopping mall.  However the MSM left an important aspect of that shooting out- that the shooting was stopped after an armed citizen pulled his weapon on the shooter.  Here is the video… Isn’t it interesting that the MSM left this out of their coverage?  Or, […]

AFL-CIO Threatens Voters? “Your Voting Record is a Matter of Public Record”

In a rather interesting mailer sent to Oregon Residents, the ALF-CIO seems to indicate that they know how people voted in previous elections.  Union Label has more… A mailer sent to Oregon voters by the AFL-CIO warns that their voting history is a matter of public record, reported Wednesday. “Your voting history is a matter of public record,” the mailer declares, implying that the union can determine how people vote. “The reverse cover of the pamphlet features an historic photograph of a union strike, in which the worker in front is carrying a poster that reads: ‘DO NOT CROSS […]

Rewarding Dependency? Oregon gets bonus money for signing more people up for food stamps


It has often been a dual claim from Conservatives that government assistance encourages dependency, and that this dependency is a desired outcome.  Considering that any efforts to reform welfare are resisted by the left, and that these programs did indeed foster dependency, I think we can safely state that the said dependency is not a flaw, but a feature.  After all, why else would they not stop a program in the face of overwhelming evidence of it’s failures?  Also, when large numbers of people are dependent on government assistance, why would they vote against their own benefits?  In a real […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Lefty Racist Edition

I bet they left would like us all to forget their campaign for “civil” dicourse.  They used that to blame Sarah Palin for the Tuscon shooting, even though there was no basis for that claim.  However, in the several months since, “progressives” all over the land have engaged in the most hateful and threatening speech.  For the latest, let’s take a look at a Portland, Oregon, Tea Party event from April 15th. Can’t you just feel the tolerance and diverisity there?  I mean that’s just so civil racist, isn’t it? This is the left, ladies and gentlemen, hypocritical, unafraid to attack based […]
