Re: “Legislators who flee are the epitome of government waste

Gov. Brown pioneered the walk-out tactic when she was in the legislature and termed her use of that tactic, "very appropriate." So, walk-outs are bad if democrats arent' doing it and good if they want to virtue-signal.

Oregon's climate-change bill would've crippled rural Oregon so democrats could virtue-signal. The bill itself wouldn't affect world emissions levels (California's inefficient cap-and-trade market hasn't), and wouldn't stop China and India (who didn't sign the Paris climate scheme) from remaining the largest carbon emitters in the industrialized world. No industrialized nation has reduced carbon emissions more than the US, and we did so by using more natural gas. Don't be a gasbag, Governor, encourage more use of natural gas and hydropower, which the northwest has in abundance, and don't put the costs of the carbon emissions climate change scam on the backs of rural Oregon.

Re: “Republican Senators AWOL... Again

Ahhh. Kate Brown leads democrat legislators on a walkout and it's "very appropriate." Republican legislators walk out over a virtue-signaling bill that will have zero effect on global gas emissions (if that's a good thing and certainly won't offset emission increases from China and India), all at the expense of rural Oregon. And Boquist is a radical? Who's really out-of-touch here? Methinks it's Salem and the Source.

Re: “This Modern World

America envies Oregon for we have the brainy Gov. Brown who wants to tax rural Oregon silly so she can virtue-signal via a version of California's unpopular and wholly ineffective cap-and-trade while China and India (both exempted from the Paris climate accords) add a coal plant per week. Real positive effect on the world's emissions? Zero, especially when compared to the positive effect of increased natural gas usage. What's next, a solar-powered bullet train between Portland and Bend funded with $1,000 annual taxes on pickup trucks? Wind-powered detention camps at Portland State for any new Oregonians expressing conservative ideas? Now, that's BRAIINNNSSSS! Who'd have thought we'd find such a smart elistist career bureaucrat like Kate Brown to Californicate Oregon?

It's not obstruction of anything to uncover the crime that's been committed against you.

Re: “A Growing County Needs More Services, Not Fewer

Several omissions here. First, a lower property tax rate does not necessarily result in lower tax revenues. A lower property tax rate applied to a higher tax base should result in more tax revenue. A lower property tax rate doesn't automatically mean less tax revenue. What's the answer?

Second, why does it follow that more people results in more crime? The DA needs more staff only if the crime rate increases. Perhaps the DA needs better staff. What's the crime rate? Who is the DA hiring? Is the DA a good leader? A sound manager?

Re: “This Modern World—week of May 30

Remarkable. Your future is the same scenario that began 30 months ago, but with Ds for Rs and vice-versa. How prescient. Hang around for the results of the AG investigations into how the 2016 version all began, read the indictments sure to come, and perhaps you will be able to illustrate how close to political (inverse) reality is satire.
