Re: “Green Building: A Smart Investment?

You know what's even greener than green buildings? Building things close enough together so that people don't have to drive for *everything* in their lives:

Of course that's not for everyone, but if the market will produce it, we should allow it.

Re: “County Board vs. Marijuana: Axes are grinding

The only politics involved here is with the reporter. Must be from The Source, a left-wing rag in Central Oregon. Obviously, this county like others in the state, are going through growing pains with a myriad of items regarding marijuana production. I say, take it slow and easy folks. Once these farms are online itll take monumental action to amend and stop any counterproductive impact on a county. I commend the commissioners for their deliberate, precautionary actions.

Re: “County Board vs. Marijuana: Axes are grinding

This is the beginning of what I would define as "poor governance" by the two Republican County Commisoners. Both have a biased political agenda with little regard for the county regulations that are in place.

Re: “A Secret Committee Revealed

God! I wish they would do a secret committee on gun violence instead.

If the Rhinestone Ranch wants to be an actual children's activity center then it really should have a permit and be open to inspection for safety.

Re: “This Modern World

Medicare-for-all cost estimates exceed $32T over ten years. Total federal tax revenue for 2019 is estimated at $3.4T. Medicare-for-all thus would double taxes. Since not all citizens pay federal income taxes, it will become necessary to expand the tax base to include nearly everyone who does not pay federal income tax now. Effectively, those who are younger, healthier and who can least afford Medicare insurance premiums and contributions will subsidize older, less healthy retirees. Have at it. Just give Howard Schultz or Michael Bloomberg a ring for a bit of economic education.

Don't confuse health insurance with health care. The best way to reduce the cost of health care and expand its availability is to produce more doctors and health professionals. If you want to spend tax dollars to improve health care, consider subsidizing medical education costs to promote the desirability of a medical education to more students. This country can use more doctors and fewer cartoonists.
