A proposed Oregon bill would provide the deep blue state’s homeless population $1,000 per month that recipients could use at their own discretion. The bill, introduced last month, would establish a People’s Housing Assistance Fund Demonstration Program to give 12 monthly thousand-dollar payments to those suffering from homelessness or who are on the brink of becoming homeless. “Payments may be used for rent, emergency expenses, food, child care or other goods or services of the participant’s choosing,” the bill states. People who spend more than 50 percent of their monthly household income on rent, and those who earn 60% or less of the area median income would also be eligible for the funding.

And printed money covers it, but printed money lowers the value of outstanding money, so it is a tax in the form of a value transfer.

Is it any wonder some Oregon counties want out of Oregon? They should make their own state though.

If you are a bum that's quite an inticement to head for Oregon. One of the things I hate about Social Security is it's taken from you as you work and when you retire you get a monthly check which should be money being returned to you. But the feds consider it income and tax it at 85%. It used to not be taxed but Quid Pro Joe when he was a senator got a bill passed to tax it at 50%. Then it was upped to 85%. So on Social Security you are double taxed.

Un-freaking-believable. But then that is the Oregon democrat party for you. I guess the only ones who don't know that money is going to go to booze, drugs, and other things are the democrats in the legislature. A high percentage of those 'homeless' don't want to live inside a residence. They prefer their freedom.

Once again, if you want less of something, tax it. If you want more of something subsidize it. Liberals never learn. Nor do their voters. There is a reason San Francisco is awash in homeless people.

The awesomely talented jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter died on Thursday at age 89. Shorter’s long and illustrious career began in the 1950s; in the course of it, he made unforgettable music that is likely to live on long after him. When jazz was at its apogee as a centerpiece of the confident and forward-looking America of the post-World War II period and its aftermath, Shorter was a remarkable innovator, an imaginative and daring composer and improviser who never lost his deep melodic sense, even when exploring

Just a couple of girls, living in the moment, discussing cootie-ridden boys! Just kidding, it was MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart and Doug Emhoff, in a one-on-one interview where the eunuchs discussed “toxic masculinity” — something about which Emhoff has thought “a lot”. (Snip) First of all, let’s just be clear on one thing, because this is an area where conservatives forfeit ground to leftist Newspeak. “Gender” isn’t a word that applies to the human race, rather it is a word that applies to language — words, not people, are “gendered.” The left is right though on one thing: “gender” is a social construct, albeit one fabricated by pseudo-academic leftists.

On February 21, without much fanfare or notice, the Biden administration proposed a rule that endorses the Trump administration policy regarding asylum seekers at the border. If enacted, no longer would asylum seekers automatically be admitted to the U.S. The new rule would deny asylum to anyone who crosses the southern border without authorization after traveling through a third country on their way to the U.S. Trump was called a “monster”

Modern politics is annoying and frustrating, but one of the most entertaining things about it is when conservatives troll left-wingers. So much of it takes place on social media, but sometimes the trolling actually takes place in legislatures. The latest instance of conservative political trolling has taken place in Florida, and it’s so brilliant it might be the greatest political trolling job ever. On Tuesday, State Sen. Blaise Ingoglia (R-11th district) filed SB 1248, gloriously titled “The Ultimate Cancel Act,” which, in its ultra-sanitized summary, would call on the state of Florida to “immediately cancel the filings of a political party if

Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. (Snip) American leftists are always going on about being anti-hate and anti-bigotry, portraying themselves as pillars of tolerance. They are tolerant of anyone who adheres to their brand of godless secularism. People of faith, however, don’t get much of a fair shake from them. OK, they have a soft spot for Islam, but that’s only because so many Islamists hate the United States. Christians, on the other hand, aren’t very popular with progressives. They treat Christianity like it some sort of communicable disease, and the mere mention of Jesus will cause mass conversions within a 100-mile radius. If only it were that easy.

My friend and I sometimes argue about media outlets like CNN and MSNBC. Why do they spread misinformation? A. Are they grossly uninformed? B. Do they know the truth but tell falsehoods anyway? C. Do they think we are stupid or naïve? My buddy feels that the media outlets know the truth but lie about it. To me, it is more complicated. The nice-looking journalists who read the teleprompters are genuinely ignorant. On the other hand, the news producers probably know the truth but spread misinformation anyway. Producers are the ones who select the topics, construct the programs, and hire the special analysts. Let’s consider this recent example.

SAN DIEGO — A California panel on Wednesday denied parole for Robert F. Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan, saying the 78-year-old prisoner still lacks insight into what caused him to shoot the senator and presidential candidate in 1968, Sirhan’s lawyer said. That contradicted the decision by a different parole board two years ago when its members found Sirhan to be suitable for release. Gov. Gavin Newson rejected the decision in 2022, keeping him in state prison. Sirhan’s lawyer Angela Berry disputed he lacks insight and argued at Wednesday’s hearing that his psychiatrists have said for decades that he is unlikely to reoffend or be a danger to society.

FBI officials were leery of the plan, and pleaded for a more measured approach, while DOJ prosecutors were hell-bent on a surprise incursion to search for classified documents: Prosecutors argued that new evidence suggested Trump was knowingly concealing secret documents at his Palm Beach, Fla., home and urged the FBI to conduct a surprise raid at the property.

The tweet came two days after DeSantis signed a bill into law that officially revoked Disney’s previous self-governing power over the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the district where Disney World is located. The bill put the district under the control of a state board of term-limited members recently announced by DeSantis. In response to this move, Olbermann insisted that Disney should fire back by moving its massive park and "burning" the remains.
