INTERESTING - THINK A 9mm CARTRIDGE CAN'T DO THE JOB?

You talk with folks who shoot, and talk about ammo effectiveness, and you'll hear all sorts of claims and counterclaims. These guys did a test with 9mm pistols at long ranges, just to see what they'd do. Do you need a .45, or is bullet placement and good 9 effective? Worth a watch.

THIS is why you don't play the "Road Rage Game"

A Central Point man, 56-year old William Ashby is in jail today. Sheriffs say a young couple, Forest Miller and Ashley Taylor tailgated, then passed Ashby, exchanging "fightin' words" on High Banks Road in the Central Point area last night.

Ashby is accused of following the couple, pulling his Glock on them. Ashby goes to smack Miller, in the process the pistol fires, but the round doesn't hit anyone. Miller goes to get a rifle in the car, Sheriffs deputies join in the mess, and haul Ashby off to jail.

You just never know where these incidents will lead. We all do stupid things on the road, we're human. When that happens to me, I try to indicate "I'm sorry", and such. It's amazing how quickly these incidents defuse when you try to back off. Of course if someone comes after you no matter what? That's why we "carry".


CA GOV BROWN TELLS ILLEGALS "WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA"

It will be interesting to see how this plays out with California going for illegal alien licenses, with Oregon getting to vote to repeal the legislature's passing of this law. Also interesting how the Mexican President says he's intersted in helping "immigration reform". Translation: Make it easy to take my excess populations in order to keep my country from breaking down into total civil unrest.


BILL'S GUEST for 08-26-2014

6:35 Gayle Trotter, attorney, and fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. Here's her op-ed piece on how Obama's "Don't Do Stupid Stuff" foreign policy isn't enough.

7:10 Sal Esquivel, State Representative. Today we discuss border policy, drivers license issue in Oregon.

7:35 Curt Chancler, independent, non-affiliated candidate for Jackson County Commissioner, position 3. More on Curt At His Website.

8:10 Dr. Dennis Powers, "Visiting Past and Present" Science Works Museum!

The Creation of ScienceWorks

By Dennis Powers

When Sharon and John Javna’s son, Jesse, was to start kindergarten in 1995, they wanted him to attend a good public school. They decided to move to Ashland from Berkeley, California. John was a successful writer and publisher: His self-published book, “50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth,” had sold 5 million copies, was printed in 23 languages, and hit number one on the 1990 national best-seller lists. Sharon Javna had been a public defender in Oakland, who quit her job to stay at home when their son Jesse was born, joined three years later by a daughter, Sophie.

They loved being in the Valley and Ashland, but missed taking their children to the interactive museums found in the Bay Area. Although lacking in experience, they decided to start a small science museum in the Ashland Middle School, so that children could have hands-on experiences such as dissecting fish. They built the exhibits, a lab for experiments, and even showed a giant python. The tiny museum--named the Ashland Middle School Science Institute--was a success.

Sharon later was looking at the old natural history museum building, the once Pacific Northwest Museum of Natural History, above the intersection of East Main and Walker. Although it was closed and empty, she thought that the structure would make a perfect museum. John wasn’t so sure, as it was 26,000 square feet of space and their Middle School project was only 700 square feet. Sharon won. The couple visited large, recognized science museums throughout the country; they talked to administrators, took pictures of the exhibits, and tried to familiarize themselves with the operations.

After researching and reviewing their plans, they met with joint founders, Marge and Dave Bernard. Dave was involved with Ashland-based Darex Corporation, the family-owned, industrial sharpening firm known for its Drill Doctor handyman tool. They also met with a good friend, Dan Kranzler, in Seattle who was president of his family’s Kirlin Charitable Foundation.

In 2001, through a cooperative arrangement with the Kirlin Foundation and Southern Oregon University, ScienceWorks leased the entire building, previously occupied by the Pacific Northwest Museum of Natural History. The Kirlin Foundation purchased the building for the new center, and Southern Oregon University leased the underlying land to the operation. With her legal background, Sharon took over administrative duties; as John had been a toymaker before becoming an author, he was responsible for the exhibits. In the following year, a small museum staff and more than one hundred volunteers retrofitted the structure and built the exhibits. With volunteer help by all, opening the facilities cost $300,000, far below the $3,000,000 price tag that consultants had predicted. 

It opened in December 2002. ScienceWorks is called one of the country’s best small science museums with near 100 interactive exhibits on different scientific principles. From its highly popular “Bubble-ology Room”--where people can blow bubbles and learn about bubble-surface tension--to “Pedal Power” (a stationary bicycle that powers an electric train) and a nano-technology exhibit, adults and children alike learn and are entertained at the same time. Special programs and events are also created, such as the landing of the Mars-rover Curiosity to the rare occurrence of a solar eclipse. An exhibit with three robotic dinosaurs--including a tyrannosaurus rex and two other raptors--was added; motion-tracking systems give them the ability to follow movement and eventually sniff and roar at onlookers.

The great majority of the children who visit are from outside Ashland, as well as the majority of its members. ScienceWorks basically serves a region that stretches nearly 150 miles, from Mt. Shasta to Roseburg and Cottage Grove. In 2012, more than 53,000 people toured its exhibits, for example, of whom 10,000 were schoolchildren with their teachers. Arguably the second largest tourist destination in Ashland outside of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, it also conducts on-site school programs, coupled with an outreach program that supports teacher development.

ScienceWorks relies on admission charges, contributions, and membership fees to operate. Currently utilizing 10,000 of an available 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, future expansion is always present--and all for the benefit of this and other communities.

Re MILITARIZED POLICE

Lars was questioning some caller's concerns the other day about the militarization of police today. I differ with him on this, and figure you need to think through the purpose of uniforms. We wear them to send a message, otherwise the military would dress in jeans and Carhartt shirts.

Uniforms are important symbols, and they need to be carefully designed. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why the Nazis in WWII went with a "badass black" uniform, arguably one of the sharper wardrobes in military history. It implied mystery, power, exclusivity, and of course, a "mess with us and we'll kill you" vibe.

When your local law enforcement dresses like military, there is the danger they will act more like military, rather than civilians. (which they are) Function and behavior follow form. When you dress like a hammer, you go looking for nails to pound.

Our "Protect and Serve" men and women should always strive to project a moderate, helpful image


ON THAT SAME THREAD - VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING...

WANT TO END THE POLICE STATE? SELF GOVERN

Do you need to be religion tio be moral? I think we'll discuss this in the coming days.

MORE #FERGUSON

Over the weekend, yet another Ferguson "teachable moment": State of emergency declared, and the police did nothing to stop the mayhem, while shopkeepers guard their stores with their own guns. Pastor Robert White told a tv station: "I think the first message is to remind all law enforcement that they are hired to serve and protect and if they’re going to sit back and watch looting, they're not serving us; they’re not protecting us,"

What's the teachable moment, you ask? Police have no legal requirement to protect you, or your property. Wide discretion can also mean the discretion to do nothing. Government police are first and foremost really there to protect the government first. This is another reason why gun control advocates promote evil policy by disarming good people. Don't be a victim, always have a way to defend you and your property from civil unrest, as 911 doesn't always work, nor does it always matter.

Now the National Guard is patrolling the streeets, meanwhile the New American reports that a witness is corroborating the police officer's story. READ IT HERE


BILL'S GUESTS for 08-18-2014

7:10 Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal, Library issue, GMO law questions, and more.

8:10 Dr. Dennis Powers "Visiting Past and Present". Today, the Applegate!

The Applegate

By Dennis Powers

Named for one of the pioneering Applegate brothers, the Applegate River winds its way northward from its forested headwaters in Siskiyou County, California, into Jackson County and then through Josephine County to where it spills into the Rogue River downstream from Grants Pass. Southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley (named for the river) extends from Wonder and Wilderville to the north, the Rogue River National Forest to the south, Ruch to the east, and Williams to the west. The small unincorporated town of Applegate is about fifteen miles from Jacksonville along Highway 238 is this valley.

The 1850’s area discovery of gold brought a rush of miners into the Applegate River and its watershed, followed by merchants and settlers motivated by the donation land and homestead acts. With a strong market for supplying the miners and settlers, the completed Crescent City to Jacksonville wagon road in 1858 allowed wagon trains to bring needed goods from the port. The town of Applegate was originally named Bridge Point, as those on this trail--heading to and from the Pacific Ocean--crossed the Applegate River there by an 1860-built wooden bridge.

Close to this crossing was a dance and events hall built by a local farmer by the name of Orlando Rose. The Pernoll family built a store at the crossing later which housed the post office and other structures followed. As the mining activity declined, other economic activities took its place, including logging, farming, and ranching. Sheep, cattle, and cows grazed by fields of wheat, corn, and barley, as fruits and vegetables were also grown.

In the decades of the 1950s and ‘60s, farming and ranching declined, and folks moved into the valley in their search for a simpler, rural life. Land once used for farming was subdivided into small lots and houses were constructed. More residents commuted away to work and larger, expensive homes were built on acreage, especially in the Upper Applegate Valley.  

To protect the region from flooding, the Army Corps of Engineers began construction in 1976 on the Applegate Dam, which was completed four years later. The dam created Applegate Lake, which is a 988-acre reservoir located nearly 25 miles from Jacksonville along Upper Applegate Road. The fishing, boating, sailing, camping, hiking, and recreational activities added to the region’s allure.

In 1977, a few hippies, who were recent converts to Christianity, asked the Reverend Jon Courson to come to the Applegate. They needed someone to teach them to “grow in the ways of God.” He came. The charismatic Courson built the bible-study group in Ruch over time into Southern Oregon’s largest church, the Applegate Christian Fellowship. Under his leadership, the congregation grew by the 1990s into a high of 7,000 weekly worshipers. Starting from nothing, the Ruch campus now covers several acres with a large church; a huge, open-air amphitheater; and even a mountain retreat with a main lodge and cabins.

Courson established the Applegate Ministry’s own radio station, KAPL Radio at 1300 AM, with live coverage of services, in-house programs, bible teaching, and worship music. As other satellite churches sprung up in Grants Pass and Medford, attendance is now some 3,000 weekly worshippers; but the Applegate Fellowship is still drawing large crowds on Sundays that pack the roads and parking in this rural setting.

Wineries and vineyards also sprouted up to where the Applegate Valley was designated as an American Viticultural area back in 2000, joining the Napa and Rogue Valleys (all part of the designated Southern Oregon Viticultural Area). One of this state’s first wineries began here and re-opened as the Valley View Winery, and a total of eighteen vineyards and wineries are now present.

This bucolic area is now a place where retirees live with younger, working people, one that successfully changed with the times.

VIDEO FROM THE JACKSON COUNTY LIBRARY MEETING

(You, as a taxpayer, shall be beaten a bit less...from .60, down to $.52 per $1000 of valuation)

Hat Tip to Kevin Gee For this video coverage


#FERGUSON

I watched the press conferences today from #Ferguson Missouri, and the story is now that Michael Brown, the dead 18-year old, did a strong arm robbery at a convenience store (punched a clerk) to steal some cigars. I would caution against a reflexive "law and order, the kid had it coming" reaction just the same as I would dismiss the "racial" aspect that the hustlers promote.

The fact is, the stealing of cigars doesn't justify what some term a field execution. There are credible eyewitnesses insisting Brown had been running away, and was shot with his hands up. This wouldn't make it a "good shoot".

Consider a scenario you could find yourself in - Say that a dirtbag breaks into your house, scares you, whatever, and you go after him...Let's say he even "went after your gun", but he breaks off and is running away from your home, and you blast him during the flight. (The threat is gone) What happens? - YOU GO TO JAIL.

Cool heads need to prevail. Unarmed doesn't mean Un-Dangerous, but "robbery suspect" doesn't mean "blast him", either. And the militarized camo-clad response from government agents bring shame upon what We The People have let our civilian police forces become.

Finally, the rioting, and soiling of innocent property owners, and resident's own neighborhoods, in reaction to frustration over government policy, makes me question whether we've lost the ability to self-govern. When people lose this, the police state will be there to fill the vacuum.


JFK Assasination interview...

Saw this on LewRockwell.Com, and thought it was worth of sharing with you. Especially given my Tuesday interview with Roger Stone, author of Nixon's Secrets. In my Tuesday Podcast, Roger discussed how Nixon got his pardon by threatening to bring down all the people who falsified evidence in the Warren Commission report. Gerald Ford had altered the autopsy records to indicate a wound pattern differing from reality, in order to fit with the government's "Single Bullet Theory", and that JFK had been shot from behind, only.

Douglas P. Horne served on the staff of the Assassination Records Review Board and is the author of the five volume Inside the Assassination Records Review Board.

Can you imagine a modern starlet saying THIS? "I put my career in second place throughout both my marriages and it suffered. I don't regret it. You make choices. If you want a good marriage, you must pay attention to that. If you want to be independent, go ahead. You can't have it all."

BILL'S GUESTS FOR 08-08-2014

7:10 Steve Buckstein at the Cascade Policy Institute - Here's his latest "Quick Point"

"Sustainability is Fine, Unless There's Nothing Left to Sustain"

The University of Oregon may hire four new “hot shot” sustainability professors whose mission will be to “change the world by figuring out how to rebuild and reorganize cities…to account for climate change, population growth and environmental damage.”

Worthy goals, no doubt. But remember what the blind longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer had to say about the role of cities in civilization:*

“I’ve found that everything creative comes from the city. All men’s theories and great achievements―they were not realized in the bracing atmosphere of forests and steppes and mountaintops, but in the crowded, stinking cities! NOTHING OF IMPORTANCE HAS EVER COME FROM THE VILLAGE—how could anything be invented in places where strangers are not welcome?Man becomes human in the city; without the city, man would have been nothing…And, of course, it’s in the cities that man decays, too. America will die if we don’t know how to run viable cities.”

But, Hoffer wouldn’t trust “hot shot” professors to solve our city’s problems. Here’s what he had to say about such men:

“I AM AFRAID OF SCHOOLTEACHERS AND INTELLECTUALS—I THINK THEY MAKE THE WORST TYRANTS IN THE WORLD, AND THEY NEVER HAVE ANY UNDERSTANDING OF THE MASSES.”

Hoffer saw business as “the sphere that most of the energy and ambition and talent in America gravitated toward.” But, then he saw the “social landscape in America…started to tilt away from business, and the rewards offered to intellectuals…loomed higher and higher.”

“Hot shot” professors may be smart; but they won’t create the goods and services we need to truly sustain our lives, liberty, and happiness. For that, we need a vibrant business climate, and I see nothing in the “hot shot’s” job description that allows for that.
* All Eric Hoffer quotes are from Eric Hoffer: An American Odyssey, by Calvin Tomkins, EP Dutton, 1968


Steve Buckstein is founder and Senior Policy Analyst at Cascade Policy Institute, Oregon’s free market public policy research organization

Shady Cove

By Dennis Powers

Dating back to the mid-1800s, passersby described the shady cove--from which the town derived its name--as a shelter where weary travelers could rest from the hot sun. This river bend is located 300 yards upstream from the present Highway 62 bridge in town, and the name then was descriptive, not an official name. It isn’t known precisely when folks started referring to the bend as the “cove” or “shady cove.”

The place was also where people stayed while waiting for the ferry at a nearby river crossing. Before bridges were built, folks crossed the Rogue this way, whether it was to commute between the gold camps at Jacksonville and John Day in Eastern Oregon, or to travel between Trail and Eagle Point. 

In the early 1900s, two developers built a home and vacation cabins at the cove, and they were the first to officially use the name in their recorded map. Area residents came to spend their summertime while enjoying the river and away from the summer heat. Over time, however, the cabins were abandoned, pathways washed away, and vegetation overtook the beach.  

As with most Rogue Valley communities, the economy depended on the timber industry. With it being on a main access to Crater Lake--which is 60 miles away--tourists naturally passed by or stayed at the town. As timbering moneys diminished, the town became more of a tourist and retiree destination. The town grew as newcomers replaced the loggers and suppliers to the industry.

In 1964, however, the disastrous Rogue River flood nearly destroyed it. After five days of heavy rains and snowmelt, the swollen river rose over its banks on the night of December 22nd. The raging waters hit Shady Cove almost the hardest. The flood and mudslides destroyed numerous homes, stately pine trees, the original bridge crossing, the saw mill adjacent to the bridge, and other structures, as tons of heavy mill-logs and rooftops surged past to crush downstream houses. The town was totally dark as power was out, but everyone could hear the river’s roar. The town rebuilt, but this took time.   

Shady Cove incorporated in 1972, taking the name for the cove that was a natural shelter for those passing through. Led by Faye Thompson, the city then embarked on a beautification project to make the town “shady with trees.” The U.S. Forest Service donated Evergreen seedlings that were planted throughout in returning the place to its pre-1964 flood days. Owing to this, people now see forty-year-old Pine trees that stand tall.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control in 1977 completed construction of the William Jess Dam and Lost Creek Lake, a reservoir nine miles north of Shady Cove with the Rogue River continuing downstream. The U.S. Army Corps also built the Cole M. River Fish Hatchery, one of the largest in the Western states just downstream of the dam. With the recreational draws of the lake and adjacent parks, the town had another attraction for residents and newcomers alike.

The town also puts on different festivals, of which the most publicized is its Spam Festival, held on the last Saturday in June. Owing to Spam’s ability to last without refrigeration, it became a standard K-ration for U.S. soldiers. Although it isn’t as commercially used as in years before, Shady Cove has this festival where one can buy Spam hamburgers, hot dogs, and even Teriyaki Kabobs, while listening to bands, checking out vendor booths, and enjoying a kid’s carnival. First started in 2000, this nonprofit affair donates its proceeds to community youth groups. 

With RV parks, close-by camping facilities, motels, and different parks, Shady Cove has found its niche as a tourist destination. With the magnificent Rogue River running through the city limits, it has found its place.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?
Professor Ian Plimeris could not have said it better!


PLIMER: "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life. I know....it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs.....well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.  

I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it.

Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.  And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario.  Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention 'Global Warming' Anymore, but just 'Climate Change' - you know why?  It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.

It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.
But, hey, relax......give the world a hug and have a nice day!

AN INTERESTING IMMIGRATION VISUAL DISPLAY FROM ROY BECK


DR. DENNIS POWERS 'VISITING PAST AND PRESENT" POST FOR THE DAY:

Southern Oregon’s Bigfoot

By Dennis Powers

From Grants Pass and Ashland to Cave Junction and Prospect, the sightings of Bigfoot, otherwise known as Sasquatch, have been numerous over the years; state and federal parks are also noteworthy as to these encounters, such as around Crater Lake or the Oregon Caves. Given the widespread, thick forests and remote areas in Southern Oregon, it isn’t too much of a stretch to see that our area has more than its share of these sightings.

Bigfoot is defined in most dictionaries, as a “very large, hairy, humanoid creature reputed to inhabit wilderness areas of the U.S. and Canada, especially in the Pacific Northwest.” These human-like beings are believed to be 8-foot-plus in height, primate-like, and the surviving descendants of a species named Gigantapithicus, a tall, ape-like creature from the Pleistocene epoch (a long period that ended 11,700 years ago.)

With the numerous sightings in Jackson and Josephine counties, it is difficult to pick the best ones, as all are interesting and certainly important to whoever’s making the report. Crater Lake and the Oregon Caves are the site of well-evidenced ones. In 1976, the Chief Park Naturalist observed a Sasquatch-like creature, for example, that was crossing the South Road at dusk. Two years later, two park rangers reported seeing “something large in the forest with a foul odor” that threw a pinecone at them.

If having reports from rangers is doubtful, then the experiences of a Grants Pass clinical psychologist in 2000 at the Oregon Caves is worthy. Matthew Johnson was on a summer walk on the Big Tree Loop Trail, when he left his wife and children to “answer nature’s call.” He previously had heard strange “whoa, whoaa, whoaa” sounds and smelled a skunk-like stench.

While off the trail, the 6-foot/9-inch, 300-pound man had the scare of his life. Seeing movement to one side, Johnson turned to watch a Bigfoot--8-foot-tall, hairy, huge, and quite real to him--who then disappeared back into the brush. The psychologist ran to his family and quickly herded them back to the caves. A long-time park ranger at the Oregon Caves accompanied Johnson the next day to investigate the site. Although the ranger didn’t believe in Sasquatch, he said that without any question, Johnson had not made up the story.

Matthew Johnson was so taken by his experience, he told about his experience on television and through newspapers around the country. He established the Southern Oregon Bigfoot Society (“SOBS”) so that others could join him in finding the creature. This organization put together different expeditions into the forests near Grants Pass. The SOHS has reported discovering hair samples, hand prints, footprints, and teeth imprints with a 3-1/2 inch gap between them. The group states they have come across boulders tossed in a road’s middle that were too heavy for a man to lift, along with trees broken off ten-feet high with limbs that were 1/2-foot in diameter.

These searches are not isolated occurrences. In the 1970s, three men built a Bigfoot trap west of Applegate Lake. Led by reports that an old miner had found 18-inch human-like tracks (indicating a 6-foot stride) in his garden near the upper reaches of the Applegate River, Ron Olson and two others decided to build a trap near the location. The constructed wooden box was 10-feet by 10-feet and built of 2-inch thick planks. A metal grate was the trap door and to be triggered by a Bigfoot reaching for a deer or rabbit carcass that hung at the rear.

Built by special forestry permit, this cage is most likely the only official Bigfoot trap in the world. Located 1/2 mile west of Applegate Lakeon the Collings Mountain Trail, telephone poles anchor it to the ground. Although the structure is in disrepair owing to the elements, it is a testimonial to the belief that these creatures do exist.

Although the arguments continue as to whether Sasquatch is a fact or only a myth, even some academics and anthropologists have written books and articles in the reality. Even so, your belief might depend on whether you are reading this article in a home study or camping out at night in the wilderness.

DON'T CALL IT SOCIALISM.....

(it might hurt an American's feelings)

You could be forgiven for wanting to renounce your citizenship last night after watching Bill O'Reily's Talking Points. (thinking the country's freakin' ignorant and doomed) You see, Bill O'Reilly says "Obamacare is socialism", while former Prez drone Austan Goolsbee counters with "well you must believe Social Security and Medicare are socialism, too". Then Bill O replies with "Naw, they're not socialism, cuz' we all pay into the system".

C'mon...IT'S ALL SOCIALISM!!!

Just because you're required to "pay into the system" doesn't make it some free market plan. It's ALL been about income redistribution. Social Security, Medicare, all of it. Your payout isn't directly connected with how much you paid, there are no property rights in them, and there is no real capitalistic "there" there. (Not to mention that Congress, can, and does, change the rules whenever it wants)

Just because we've all been forced on the socialist dole, doesn't make it not socialism. I know we'd like to think it isn't the case, in order to "feel better" about it, but that's the truth of the matter.

For example: Older white women directly benefit more from the socialism security system. They live longer, and collect benefits for a much longer time, at the expense of those who don't live long enough to collect all they paid in. (quite often African American men)

You can say all the entitlements aren't perfect, or even that they've been a good thing, but don't kid yourself that we're "on the way to socialism". We're already there, and are merely arguing semantics.

The first step of fixing our "socialism problem" is to admit we already have one!

DENNIS RICHARDSON and JOHN KITZHABER DEBATE

John Kitzhaber said in effect "We'll never get control of Federal lands, so why try", while Richardson made it clear that he's going to the mat to wrestle control of these federal lands and have them under Oregon management. Richardson was against sales taxes, Kitz waffled. Richardson was "no" on the illegal drivers card, Kitz fully supportive of them. Richardson basically tarred the governor as wasteful and out of touch. Also, if Kitz has all these great plans, why weren't they implemented in all the years he's been in office.

About the only point where I disagreed with Richardson was he and Kitz support the open primary. I totally disagree with this. You want to choose a party's candidate, then join the party, otherwise sucks to be unaffiliated. But if that's the worse thing I can say about Richardson's positions, I'll be fine with that.
