That's what Oregonians voted for

Gas taxes being hiked in Oregon
Oregon drivers may get an unpleasant shock when they pull up to the pump in the new year.

Drivers there are already paying an average of $3.06 per gallon, but in the new year the state Department of Transportation is hiking the gas tax by 6 cents. That will bring the state tax to 30 cents per gallon.

Taxpayers in the rest of the nation, however, can breathe a sign of relief. Oregon's gas tax increase is one of the few hikes taking place on Jan. 1.

"New governors ran on platforms of not increasing taxes," said Brian Sigritz, director of state fiscal studies for the National Association of State Budget Officers.

Our governor ran on a "the government needs your money more than you do" platform and won. Such is the climate in Oregon where an acronym agencies budget is more important than a family budget.

We live in a state where the politicians tax health care to make it more affordable. A state where they want the leftover money from your unused Christmas gift cards.
A state that is addicted to gambling and tobacco money.

A state where the inmates are running the asylum.

Poster child gets to stay?

Hector Lopez is Coming Home!
21-year-old Hector Lopez–the Portland college student who was deported to Mexico in late August–has passed his “credible fear” interview for asylum and is processing parole papers for his imminent release from a migrant processing center in Florence, AZ.

“He’s coming home,” said immigrant advocate Ralph Isenberg from Dallas, who has been working closely with the Lopez family and attorneys. “There’s nothing more I can say right now,” he said, obviously overwhelmed with emotion. The phone call from Isenberg came at about 1:50 p.m. CST.

It never ceases to amaze me how our politicians will say "we need to pass this bill or the puppy dies" but when the bill fails we see the exact opposite happen. Without amnesty the illegal aliens will only get... de facto amnesty.

Because amnesty is so popular

DREAM Act Goes Down in Flames in Senate
An immigration bill that would blaze a trail to legal status for hundreds of thousands of undocumented students went down in flames in the Senate on Saturday, delivering a critical blow to Democrats and Hispanic activists.

"Now, the next Congress can start to put unemployed Americans back to work by eliminating the ability for illegal aliens to hold jobs and by reducing the number of unnecessary permanent foreign workers we currently bring in legally every month," said Roy Beck, president and founder of NumbersUSA.

That's all folks. The amnesty pushers can't pass a bill to benefit the most "sympathetic" illegal aliens out of the whole bunch.

Marching in the street waving Mexican flags didn't work and now pretending that criminal aliens are all just a bunch of innocent kids who love community service didn't work.

We don't want amnesty, we want illegal aliens to go home!

Headline writers are agree like economists agree

Oregon shows job increase for second straight month

Oregon unemployment up to 10.6%
Oregon Business Journal

Both headlines are true. This is why we need to keep government out of the media, when you can control the message you can sway public opinion.

Tell the FCC to keep it's filthy hands off the internet:

Ill-gotten gains

Which politicians voted for a bill that would allow the family members of Bernie Madoff to keep the spoils of his crimes?

That's what the DREAM act is.

Never forget where their loyalties are:

House votes for a nightmare

Who are your first role models? Your parents. What if you parents are criminals? Where do your sympathies lie? With criminals.

The House of Representatives has just voted to pass the DREAM Act amnesty bill.

Some animals are more equal than others. At some point us lesser animals are going to realize that we are suckers for following the ridiculous rules that our government sets for us.

Are we a nation of laws?

Young man who grew up in Milwaukie awaits vote on Senate bill that would create path to citizenship for minors brought to U.S. without documentation
No one will be more interested in the outcome of a U.S. Senate vote today than a 20-year-old man who grew up in Milwaukie but discovered he was neither a citizen nor a legal resident when federal authorities arrested him in August and deported him to Mexico.

Lopez would be among about 2 million children and young adults eligible for citizenship under the bill. Opponents, led by Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, say the act would be in effect amnesty and would attract more undocumented immigration.

You know who might be more interested in the outcome of the U.S. Senate vote? Any one of the millions of unemployed American citizens who are tired of competing with illegal labor!

The media will continue to look long and hard for the most sympathetic case to push amnesty but these examples are the exception and not the rule. For every tear jerker honor roll student that the Oregonian can find I can produce a drug dealing rapist.

I'm amused

Hatemonger Obama gives tax cuts to the filthy rich... and the funniest reads can be found over at Democratic Underground where they act like Sarah Palin just got elected president. Good stuff.

I'm about to lose all respect for the law

Reid Angers GOP by Pushing Four Versions of DREAM Act Without Hearing
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has pushed four different versions of the controversial immigration bill known as the DREAM Act without a hearing on any of them, drawing outrage from the top Republican on the committee that would have handled the package.

The new version also made illegal immigrants who had committed marriage or voter fraud ineligible, the source said, though those responsible for other infractions like document fraud could still apply.

What's a little document fraud amongst friends? The outgoing politicians want to reward those who break our laws. At some point the rest of us are going to decide that we get to pick and choose as well.
