Oregonians are Morons

Well, elections are done, and sure enough the communists in Salem have prevailed in stripping our property rights. Measure 49, which was sold as a way to “restore rights to farmers,” passed. Of course, what the creators of that measure failed to mention was that it essentially guts measure 37 that was passed a few years ago. Measure 37 was voted in (and opposed by every level of government in Oregon) and basically tells politicians that if they change laws that impact people’s property values, that they have a right to legal compensation. Pretty basic, pretty simple. In other words, Government, leave my freaking property alone!  (But, Brett, there is no private property, just the dictatorship of the proletariat.)  I wish communism was really dead.

Well, at least they didn’t push the tobacco tax into our constitution.

“Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.” – P. J. O’Rourke

  1. Great quote from O’Rourke! How about this:

    “Giving self-help books and a gender-neutral Bible to postmodern Christians is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”

  2. I like both quotes! It’s getting just as bad in Georgia…y’all.
