Lawsuits are legendary in America. From the $370 billion dollar tobacco settlement to the more recent medical malpractice crisis, lawsuits are constantly making headlines while expanding their reach to virtually every facet of our daily lives. Trial lawyers are an important driver in the creeping expanse of litigation, aggressively pursuing new opportunities for litigation. Unfortunately, it seems that their efforts may be based more on self interest rather than applying the principles of the common law to provide redress to individuals with real grievances. In fact, trial lawyers have recently come under investigation by the FBI for activities that would make an Enron executive blush.

Out of Touch on Taxes

While citizens from Alabama to Oregon to Florida are shooting down state level tax hikes, some federal level politicians are showing just how out of touch they are with the American people by proposing higher taxes. Democratic candidates for president are arguing over how much to raise taxes and several Democratic senators have submitted a bill to increase the top income tax rate. In addition to missing the anti-tax message the American people are sending loud and clear, such proposals are bad for the economy and completely miss what needs to be done to the complicated and wasteful U.S. tax system—which is to make it simple and flat.

Cigarette tax renewal could be snuffed out

BY DAN HORTSCH

Back in mid-August, an Oregon Senate committee chose a one-page House bill intended to renew a 10-year-old, 10-cents a pack cigarette tax as a vehicle to carry a much bigger, unrelated tax plan. The result was a hefty bill loaded with about $800 million in tax increases used to balance the 2003-05 state budget. Opponents now are trying to put the tax increase package on the ballot. If voters overturn it, the relatively routine cigarette tax boost would get snuffed out, too.

Anti-tax campaign alleges harassment

BY Staff, news services

The leader of the campaign to repeal the Legislature’s tax increase alleged Tuesday that a union-backed watchdog group is using “intimidation” tactics to try to thwart the campaign. Russ Walker said that in the past week, the watchdog group’s volunteers have showed up at Portland area stores where petitioners were gathering signatures to try to discourage shoppers from signing. “They are out there confronting people,” Walker said. “They are running up to people with ‘Think Before You Ink’ fliers. It’s very intimidating to people.”

Positives hard to come by in Dean's speech

BY Matt Seaholm

Aside from being an hour and 10 minutes late, I thought Howard Dean gave a pretty good speech. I didn't agree with much he said, but it was a good delivery. While so many people are hailing Howard Dean as the savior of the Democratic Party, there is still a lot that they don't know about him. Some of the things he said in his speech sound great on a 30-second TV commercial but can't make it off the drawing board once it's time to legislate.

Schools chief apologizes for merger flier

BY Geoffrey Graybeal

HILLSBOROUGH -- Orange County Schools Superintendent Shirley Carraway apologized Monday night for allowing a flier with information about school merger from a parent group to be distributed to students. Two residents had criticized the flier as being one-sided. "If it was an error to do that, it was an error on my part," Carraway said at the Orange County school board meeting held Monday night in the central office. "If that is offensive, I'm very sorry for that. It was an effort to get out information, because that information was being sought."
