Groups challenge tax-hike petition

BY BRAD CAIN

Health-care activists are criticizing “out-of-state petitioners” who are trying to repeal the Legislature’s tax hike, saying that 60,000 low-income Oregonians could lose health insurance if the tax is overturned. Further, they said, repeal would end nutrition, transportation and home-care services for many elderly and disabled people while chopping funding for community mental health crisis services. “The health of Oregonians and the stability of our economy are in jeopardy,” said Elizabeth Byers of the Oregon Health Action Campaign.

Oregon voters could have a taxing year

BY Associated Press

PORTLAND - Oregon voters are staring at a busy 2004. Labor unions have drawn up an array of tax and revenue initiatives they may take to the streets if voters ultimately overturn the Legislature's $800 million budget-balancing package of temporary and permanent increases. At the same time, antitax groups have filed initiatives to cut taxes on capital gains and further limit property taxes. And, later this month, a group of lawmakers is expected to begin work on a possible overhaul of the state tax code, which also could wind up before voters.

They ban textbooks, don't they?

BY Frederick Clarkson

A federal lawsuit filed last week in Texas may very well turn into the Lone Star State's own version of the Scopes "Monkey Trial" -- the famous 1925 court battle in which two of America's most famous attorneys debated whether evolution should be taught in the public schools. Then, the underlying issue was whether Christianity should trump science; today, it is the scientific status of mainstream environmentalism. In the current case, the author of a widely used environmental textbook is suing five present and former members of the Texas State Board of Education, who two years ago rejected his book because of alleged factual errors and pervasive bias. Claiming that the author's free speech and equal protection rights were violated by an act of censorship, the lawsuit asserts that the real reason the book was rejected was the author's environmentalist views, which clash with those of right-wing school-board members.

Friendly Advice to the Democrats

©2003 Copley News Service, 11/4/2003 Let me offer my Democratic friends some friendly advice: They will never win the presidency or regain control of the Congress by campaigning to raise taxes, tariffs and special-interest subsidies while opposing a foreign policy that seeks to expand liberal democracy in the Middle East and throughout the Muslim world.
