HISTORICAL HIGHWAY ROBBERY
Commissioners Breidenthal and Dyer voted in favor, Commissioner Roberts votes against referring the creation of a historical taxing district. No, the proposal isn't huge money, a nickel per thousand on a homeowner's value. It's not a total done deal yet, looking for public input later in August. It's the money AND the point that bugs me. I'm tired of every interest sticking a gun in our ribs to subsidize "nice" things they'd like.
Oh, wait...maybe I should get in on the action....
<sarcasm alert on>
I like antique radios and history, surely all taxpayers enjoy antique radios and its history. I could get my supporters to create and vote in a heritage district, and take money from other people for my hobby. But it's not just for ME, no way. We could get ALL historic hobbies paid for by taxpayers. It's the same way farmers, ag industry and gardeners get their passions and business expenses subsidized by government theft. We could even have a CONVENTION CENTER historical district, the Chamber would be all in!
GOVERNMENT THEFT FOR ALL!!!
<sarcasm alert off>
Remember how much grief the peeps gave former Senator Atkinson over his velodrome proposal? All's forgiven now...he was just ahead of his time. You home and business owners have plenty of money, right? Pay your fair share!

Gov Kate Brown announces FRIDAY that she wants 3 new laws to help ban guns...er, I mean improve gun "safety". 1) OSP would have more time to process gun background checks. 2) Expanded definition of "Domestic Violence", and she wants a Kalifornia-style ban on high-capacity magazines. She wants OSP to notify local law enforcement when a prohibited person tries to purchase a firearm...which I think they're already supposed to do, will investigate. And she wants Oregon Health authority to study and suggest "gun policy" stats and changes. Of course, NONE would have solved the mass shootings that they're always talking about. We'll break it down on Monday's show.
