Greg's Great Advice 

This week, Bend went crazy with fights, a murder and now Lars Larson is coming.


Greg Walden was back in Bend soft pedaling his Bush-onomics and fomenting small business owners with his patented Washington-is-out-to-get-you rhetoric. This time Walden was meeting with the local chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business Owners.


Based on a news report, the event read like a who's-who of the Bend Chamber of Commerce with festivities hosted by Peter Carlson of Carlson Sign. It included such delicious obliviousness as this nugget from Chamber President Troy Reinhardt who lamented that his wealthiest clients won't have as much to invest in his financial firm if the Bush tax cuts aren't extended. Oh, the horror! But it was Walden who took the hyperbole award as usual, advising attendees that, if Republicans don't prevail in the midterms, they should, "bury all your money in the back yard and lock up our dogs and your children on Nov. 14 when Congress reconvenes." Seriously, Greg, you're not helping here. Wtf?
