In deja-vu plan, group will study Ore. tax changes

BY JULIA SILVERMAN

Over the years, Oregon's volatile tax system has been the subject of dozens of studies, with legions of recommendations on possible changes. But none of the plans passed muster with voters, leaving a system propped up by property taxes for local governments and income taxes for the state, enough to keep public services flush when times are good, and begging when the economy turns sour. Now, though, a new 30-member group is girding itself for another comprehensive look at tax reform.

Representative Scott Garrett Introduces LEARN Act

In a conference call with Congressman Scott Garrett (R-NJ) a new program called LEARN was discussed that would give states the option of opting out of No Child Left Behind and provide residents of those states a tax credit equal to the amount that they would have otherwise received in federal funding. The LEARN Act will give more control to states by allowing them to pursue individual state educational initiatives based on the needs of the students in that part

Sen. Lugar Calls for Farm Subsidy Reform

The Federal Farm Bill, which needs to be renewed every 5 years, was last passed in 2002 and is set to expire September 30th. There are many things wrong with the current agriculture subsidy regime. It only benefits a small number of wealthy farmers who grow only a very small number of crops, drives up food prices and rewards farmers for overproducing. According to the Heritage Foundation subsidies cost Americans an average of $320 a year ($216 in taxes and $104 in higher food prices).

Wake Up and Smell the Scam

FreedomWorks interns joined forces with members of the DC Chapter of FreeRepublic.com last week to protest the mini- "Live Earth" concert in D.C called Mother Earth.  We also recruited some other interns from the Leadership Institute to join our crusade. The event was held at the Smithsonian Museum for the Native American.  Headliners Trisha Yearwood and long-lost Garth Brooks performed one song: We Shall Be Free.

Fear and Loathing at Live Earth

BY Matt Kibbe

“I think that they should take a look at what their companies are doing and just ask themselves as human beings whether or not this is the way they want to spend their lives, if this is the way they want to earn a living, if this is the kind of contribution they want to make to the society in which we live.” -- Al Gore

The Gospel of Gore

BY Amanda Carpenter

If Al Gore wore a high-collared black suit instead of a polo shirt and jeans to the Washington, D.C. Live Earth concert, he might have been mistaken for a preacher. He gave a brief sermon Saturday, July 7 on global warming with a solemn opening. “Today we are gathered on all seven continents and eight giant concerts and in 10,000 other gatherings, many as large as this one, two billion people, we are gathered, with one message.”

LIVE Earth a haven for the DEAD hippie movment

Apparently, Live Earth was a flop . Some called it "underwhelming." No matter how you slice it, Live Earth failed in its goals........We think. The truth is, other than Gore's ridiculous 7-point plan, the specific goals of Live Earth were confusing and unclear.

Rio Live Earth is Back On

I'm amending one of my posts today- The Rio Concert is back on, after a judge was able to review the security plans in detail. I wonder how many extra tons of carbon will be released because of it.
