It's really sad that Allison feels the need deny the truth in order to make a case against racism. It can be done quite nicely without telling lies. In her Google search she apparently went right past the latest CDC report showing the homicide offender rate for black Americans is quadruple t…

Irrational hysteria? Either Jim has not been paying attention or this is a bold display of wilful ignorance to further his narrative. What's irrational is making it illegal to have an accessible home defense weapon. What's irrational is a 20 round per month limit on ammo. What's irrational i…

This is a problem, masquerading as a solution that's looking for a problem. It's silly to think we'll save money by adding another layer of bureaucracy to the system. The Western Oregon Electric Cooperative out of Vernonia is a fine example of what not to do. Let's learn from our neighbor's …
