… Oregon must realize [#freedom of religion]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 7th,2016

.. that people have the constitutional freedom to exercise their religion ..

.. that also includes when they conduct their personal affairs when they run a business . When there is an issue that they do not support and cannot stand , they are free not to support that person , persons , or group . That means they do not have to do business with them . , especially if their action violates their religious beliefs …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog report …

.. we have a Constitution . We also have a Bill of Rights , which is a document which covers protections of our individual rights . Those protections outweigh those of a common law , , or even those of statutory law . So , A statute that covers protection of a person ‘ s sexual orientation des not protect them against someone else does chooses not to serve them , just because it violates their religious beliefs …

… so What Comes First — Recall or Resignation ? [#Kitzhaber in Oregon]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 12th,2015

.. John Kitzhaber is in very deep trouble .

.. he is also under a great deal of pressure . His paramour is in serious legal trouble . He may well be , as well . The LameStream media has , for once , gotten off of its butt . They are coming after Kitzhaber with a vengeance …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. they realize how foolish they were in endorsing and campaigning for John Kitzhaber ‘ s re – election . They certainly were not enthralled with Oregon businessman [and , former State House speaker] Dennis Richardson . But , Kitz made them look like a bunch of colossal horse ‘ s asses . They now want vengeance ..

.. now , the Oregonian [ the state ‘ s largest newspaper] has called for Kitzhaber to resign . He may well be the first of may DemoCraps to quit over this , I hope …

… Oracle has CoverOregon by ” the Balls ” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 18th,2014

.. and John Kitzhaber is in real deep ” dutch . ”

.. Larry Ellison , Oracle ‘ s principal shareholder and CEO , is not one to be trifled with . It is especially the case when his company ‘ s reputation is involved . If CoverOregon (and the State of Oregon) have been playing political games with their website , and refused to put it into operation for political reasons , then watch out …

.. [h/t — KATU.com]..
.. [link] to the text / news report ..

.. I do not have a high opinion of John Kithaber . I believe that he is in far more political trouble than most folks realize . I think that former State House speaker and businessman Dennis P Richardson has a better – than – even case for defeating Kitzhaber in November ‘ s election . I hope that he does …

.. the fallout from this could really be massive . If it is proven that Oracle was right , and the website was ready , then the State of Oregon is wasting tens of millions of dollars , both on joining the federal set-up , and on manual processing of applications . Also , Kitz ‘ s actions would be considered to be an impeacheable offense , as well as several crimes . A special prosecutor should then be appointed . Also , if the Oregon House refuses to act , the voters will . November ‘ s election could get real interesting …

… What a Mess [#Covered California]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 19th,2014

.. believe it or not , there is a mess that makes CoveredOregon look like a garden party by comparison ..

.. it is California . Yes , California .

.. ObamaCrapCare expands Medicaid [in Ca , they call it MediCal] to around 140% of the poverty line . That level of expansion allows a great deal more people access to the MediCai system .It would help if those dummies are or were prepared for it …

.. obviously , they are not …

.. [h/t — CBS Sacramento]..
.. [link] to the news reports ..

.. these new enrollees are now in the system . They enrolled in MeiCal in good faith . The new system , though , does not give them  much choice . If their income is below a certain level [well above 140% of poverty] , then in you go , like it or not . You do not have a choice in it . But , those dummies are not prepared for it …

.. there are nearly 900,000 [yes , 900k] people that have enrolled , and that are waiting for coverage . What is CoveredCalifornia [theObamaCrapCare agency in Ca] waiting for ?!?!? ..

… What a Waste [ObamaCrapCare]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. it is what you get when you waste more than $500 million on state exchanges , and those exchanges crash and burn …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. Oregon and its mess is the topper of them all . CoverOregon blew through nearly $330 million , and the number of actual people that were enrolled in ObamaCrapCare online in Oregon — 0 . You got that right , Zippo . Zero , Zilch . the Big Zipparoni …

.. in other words , nicely done …

… Why the Screwup with Cover Oregon ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 7th,2014

.. [-] tax money — it flowed like wine — giving a state a lot of money to play with is a prescription for trouble . You have to be careful …

.. [-] philosophy — why a big – government takeover ? sttopid …

.. [-] fraud — the taxpayers of Oregon were defrauded . So were we all nationwide . The Oregonians were the biggest victims , though . They were stuck with a lemon , an Edsel of a website …

.. [-] website design — the feds did not help by screwing around as much as they did . It would have helped to have the design of the federal setup available so much ealier so that states could test out the design …

.. [h/t — katu.com]..

.. [link] to the news story ..

.. more to come …

.. bravo to KATU – TV , Portland , Oregon ‘ s ABC affiliate . They have done yeoman and yeowoman ‘ s work on this issue …

… Great Campaign Ad (Oregon US Senate) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 29th,2014

.. amazing woman , and , so far , an amazing campaign ..

.. Dr. Monica Wehby [Web – by] is a pediatric surgeon . She made a tough call , and stood foursquare by her patient when she needed her most , when she was pregnant , and her child ‘ s life was in danger . The results stand for themselves …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the campaign ad ..

.. normally , Monica Wehby would face long odds in a light – blue state such as Oregon . This is no ordinary year , and Oregon ‘ s state government is in a disastrous mess . It will turn the politics and the campaign trail upside down . Dr. Wehby now will have a very real chance to unseat the incumbent , Jeff Merkely …

.. I would definitely vote for her , and I think that she just might do it ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 25th,2014

.. Cover Oregon has died …

.. huh ? ..

.. the nation ‘ s worst ObamaCrapCare disaster [@ $330 million] is the state exchange in Oregon . At least now the taxpayers in D.C. and Salem (Oregon) will get some peace …

.. [h/t — RedState.com]..
.. [link] to the post ..

.. A tech panel in Governor Dr. John Kithaber ‘ s administration and the state exchange board has recommended that the exchange website , CoverOregon , be shut down . Oregon would then come under the umbrella of the Department of H.H.S. , and their applications would be covered thusly ….

… the Idiots are At It Again in Oregon [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 8th,2014

.. believe it or not , it is getting worse .

.. when we last left them , the website from hell , CoverOregon , was a disaster . The state government in Salem had managed to piss away around a quarter of a billion [yes , $250 million] dollars in taxpayer funds on the entire enterprise . The federal website [healthcare.gov] is bad enough , folks . This state – level one is even worse than that , if it is possible .

.. Yes , it is possible . Governor John Kitzhaber (himself a doctor) has led the effort to piss all of that money down the rat hole . Now , Kitz & Company (along with Jeff Merkely , the state ‘ s junior US Senator) are up for election this fall . The fallout from this is going to be devastating . And it keeps getting worse ….

.. somehow , these jokers managed to piss away another [yes , ANOTHER] $100 million in fed funds on the enterprise . Remember , CoverOregon is a state -level exchange . The state of Oregon is responsible for it all . And , you will love this next fact …

.. Number of people enrolled by the website — 0 [zero , the big Zippo] ..

.. these dummies managed to create dummy websites to fool the federales in order to keep the $$$ flowing ,especially the early $$ (before the main $$ stash arrived) …

.. [h/t — hotair] also [h/t — katu.com] — KATU –  TV , Salem , Oregon .

.. [link] to the news report .. it is a bit long (at about 10 minutes) , but it is well worth it .

.. the DemoCraps in Salem [Oregon ‘ s state capitol] have to be swearing at KATU – TV over this . The investigative reporting on this stuff is fantastic as well as damning . The DummyCraps who control Oregon ‘ s legislature are going to have to investigate this with a fine – tooth comb . Either they do , or a new GOP majority will do so .

.. The state Dem party is going to hate that , but tough . The ads that interest groups , the stateGOP , and the campaigns (especially Dr. Monica Wehby ‘ US Senate campaign against Merkely) are going to be thick  as fleas , and they are going to be hot as tamales . The DemoRats are going to pay a severe price for this nationwide enough as it is , but this corruption raises what is going on here in Oregon to a whole new level .

.. It is going to be throw  – out – the – bums time this fall in Salem and in Oregon . The only questions are how many , at what level  , and where .

… Cover Oregon is a Disgrace …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 6th,2014

.. and it is going to cause all sorts of trouble in the [ ] State .

.. [h/t — theWeeklyStandard] ..

.. [link] to the KATU news report …

.. Oregon is , of course , light Blue . Both U.S. Senators are DemoCraps , 4 of the 5 Congresscritters are Dems , John Kitzhaber [himself a Dr] is a DemGovernor , and the legislature is controlled by the Dems . Things are far from hopeless for the GOP , however .

.. John Kitzhaber (the Dem Gov) is on the ballot and is running for re – election . He faces very fierce opposition , becuase four years ago , he was elected with barely 50% of the vote against a little known GOPer [retired NBA star Chris Dudley] . Not sure if Duds is back , but the Cover Oregon debacle has Kitz on the hot seat , with the heat turned up to White Hot . Which is as hot as it gets . My guess is that this colossal mess will make Kitz a sure loser in November …

.. Kitz going down will drag other Dems with him . Not the congressccritters , though . Only 2 of the other 4 House Dem races are competitive . The Oregon legistlature is another matter . So is Jeff Merkely . Ron Wyden is a wily leg vet , but he is thankful that he is not on the ballot . However , Merkely is , and he is a freshman up for his first re – election . Without His Lordship [POTUS] protecting his back , I believe Merkely will come into big trouble come summertime , espc as it becomes known that Kitz is going down . Then , the legislature ..

.. The legislature is competitive , much more so than most people realize . The numbers are : State House , 26 R , 34 D ;  State Senate , 14 R , 16 D . So , one chamber , the other , or both could flip with a big enough wave . The possibility is that the Oregon Senate will flip . The Oregon House is another matter . His Lordship is not on the ballot , and Kitzhaber is , which will make for a very interesting couple of days after election day .

— note — Oregon conducts its elections entirely by mail . So the news of who wins and who controls may not be known until a couple of days after Election Day ..

… Oregon is Only Light Blue [politically] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,January 6th,2014

.. or , ” pink , ” if you will .

.. [h/t — http://www.theGatewayPundit.com]

.. [link] to the townhall video recording . this small town guy really lites up Senator Nitwit , and Nitwit looks like a complete idiot …

.. Jeff Merkely is an idiot . He was one of those idiotic left wing loonies elected in His Lordship ‘ s first election in 2008 . However , what goes around , comes around . He is up for election , again . also , his Lordship is not on  the ballot this time around .  So Senator Nitwit has to stand on his own .

.. this is the tale of a small business owner . He had to cut out his health insurance for his employees , due to the ” essential benefits ” rules of ObamaCrapCare . Senator Nitwit keeps telling him [(link) to the video)] to sign up for Cover Oregon , the state – operated exchange .

.. One slight problem . Cover Oregon does not work . It likely will not work anytime , soon .

.. Nice going , Senator Nitwit ! ..

… At Least Someone Comes Clean [ObamaCrapCare]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 12th,2013

.. Nancy Pelosi must be pissed . .

.. One of her “cats” got off of the reservation . This character was most definitely off script . Also , the ObamaCrap White House will not like it one bit .

.. Representative Kurt Schrader [D-Or] evidently was on some type of tv interview , when he most definitely went “off script .” The DemoCrap Congresscritters are ideally supposed to stick to a “script,” with prepared “talking points.” Once in a while , though , things happen . And , once in a blue moon , you actually get blunt honest , even from a DemoCrap … [link] here .

… further text …

“Very misleading,” the Democratic congressman says of Obama’s promise that you can keep your health care plan, if you like it.

“I think next year at the election time, people are going to want to know, was I able to sign up? And what is the shape of the benefit package I’m going to get and how much is it going to cost me, at the end of the day? I think this will, the sign-up period and problems and the horrendous problems that are going on right now will be way in the past.

“I think the president was grossly misleading to the American public. I know right away as a veterinarian, I have my own business, that my policies got cancelled even before the Affordable Care Act. I know that I would change policies on a regular basis, trying to find the best deal for myself and my employees. But a lot of Americans, a lot of Oregonians, have stayed with the same policy for a number of years and are shocked that their policy got cancelled.

“So I think the president saying you could stay with it and not being honest that a lot of these policies were going to get cancelled was grossly misleading to the American public and is causing added stress and added strife as we go through a really difficult time with health care.”

Schrader also accused White House press secretary Jay Carney of “double talk” for also misleading on Obamacare.

.. LEC again — I wonder how much hot water this guy is going to be in .This video and these clips are going to be as valuable as gold in next year ‘ s campaign . Schrader himself is going to find out about that , the hard way
