Export-Import Bank caught doctoring data to benefit big business cronies

When the Export-Import Bank as well as its friends on Capitol Hill and elsewhere talk about how the billions it doles out in taxpayer-backed loans benefits small businesses, they really mean it helps big business. Earlier this month, Reuters reported that Ex-Im, a relic of the New Deal, had "mischaracterized" subsidiaries of 200 large corporations as small businesses:

Why Conservatives Should Oppose the Export-Import Bank

Democrats in Congress are pushing to reauthorize the expiring, crony-capitalist Export-Import Bank. Conservatives who are consistent will fight it.

Taxpayers Lose on Shallow Loss Entitlement

This week, I decided to research the Farm Bill to write a little bit about some of the “reforms” House Republicans who support the bill are so proud of. The CBO estimates savings of $35 billion over the next ten years (vs. the current baseline). The CBO is also notorious for underestimating costs, and it looks like this time won’t be any different.

Are We Ready to Battle for Private Booze?

If you live in Oregon, for now, you can't just walk down the street to the corner grocery store every time you run out of tequila. Of course, if you live in Oregon, you might not do that anyway, since, if Portlandia is to be believed, you probably just ride your fixed-gear bike around to locally-sourced mixology enclaves within a couple mile radius of your community art loft.Anyhow, let me explain.

Polls Shift in Favor of Coal Jobs, Enviros Respond with Suggestions of Violence

This weekend, environmentalists in Portland and Vancouver (WA) staged several protests against fossil fuel use in an attempt to raise awareness of the evil of petroleum products. As I've reported, one of their big issues is to try to turn the transportation of coal via rail into the Spotted Owl of this century. They're pulling out all their old tricks to try to appeal to the Portlandia spirit and gain the sympathies of voters in the region.

Raisin Hell

This week, the White House launched a new initiative for a “better, smarter, faster government.” At a showy Monday press event, President Obama declared, “we need the brightest minds to help solve our biggest challenges… It’s up to each and every one of us to make it work better.”Where exactly has The Smartest President Ever decided to focus several of his brightest minds? On punishing “Raisin Dissidents.”

Electronic Waste: One Man’s Trash, Another Man’s Treasure

Pixar’s WALL-E presented a dystopian vision of humanity’s future as a result of our culture of disposable products. WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) was the robot responsible for cleaning up an abandon earth trashed by consumerism and corporatism. This is an extreme vision of how many view electronic waste, known as E-waste, overrunning the United States if the government doesn’t step in to tackle our waste problem.

Motor City Blues Part I: The Myth of Union Detroit

In recent weeks the once proud city of Detroit has been subject to a barrage of embarrassing media reports. The state takeover of the city’s finances and Kwame “The Hip-Hop Mayor” Kilpatrick’s prison sentence have played out on the national stage, bringing bad PR to a city desperately trying to improve its brand. In reality the city has been embarrassing itself for quite some time. This three part blog series seeks to lay out the history behind the epic failure that is Detroit.

And God Made a “Taxpayer Subsidized” Farmer

Americans involved in agriculture are no longer the tenant farmers and sharecroppers of days past. I’ve yet to hear of a “disaster harvest” which forces the sale of the family cow. Banks are not repossessing their land, and the range wars between farmers and ranchers have long ended.

SoloPower, Portland's Very Own Solyndra Style Success Story

Portland, Oregon likes to fancy itself as ahead of the curve, and more educated than your average city. We're routinely listed as among the most wired cities in the nation, and typically have a more educated workforce than most. Our biggest mission, it seems, is to become the greenest city imaginable. But our government leaves a lot to be desired, with liberal pipe dreams dominating over such considerations as reality and common sense.
