AstroPhysicist TKOs Portland, OR Warmists

Shangri La

By Art Hyland The following is how we need to combat the idiots and global warming zealots (but I repeat myself). Here in the Northwest where there’s limited sunshine but lots of hydro power, environmentalists are tearing out electricity-producing dams and subsidizing solar power. Only government could be this irrational. – – Ed Comments re:

Global Warming, Global Schooling and Governor CO2

CroMagnon man

By Art Hyland

[Although this is about Washington State, it’s next to Oregon and frankly the two states are like peas in a pod, they think so much alike they might as well combine in order to look even more like California.]

Is Climate Hysteria Sustainable?

By Gordon J. Fulks

Oregon’s Czar for All Seasons

Kitzaber

By Art Hyland

Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has

Oregon Ducks

sweet cake copy

By Matt Barber

Oregon Awash With Craft Beer Producers

Beer in glasses
