« "Salemia" casting call gets my Inner Actor excited | Main | Testifying at the Oregon Legislature can be oh-so-frustrating »

I agree. I think, we should be out in front of the Chamber of Commerce protesting an economic philosophy that encourages shifting resources offshore in order to push down worker wages here.

We are living in a world of self-fulfilling prophesies. They argue that only the rich pay taxes - but that occurs because all of the wealth has been concentrated at the top while tax rates have been suppressed. If business encouraged the payment of living wages, while it would suppress wages at the top, we would have more wage earners and tax payers to help pay for the government we need.

Not only that, but Oregon's 1 and only Republican rep Greg Walden has just introduced an amendment to block Internet neutrality, that is big carriers cannot slow down traffic.

"Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., the sponsor of the spending bill amendment and chairman of the House Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, said his measure is "about keeping the government out of the business of running the Internet."


Me too, Brian...I can hide them in my Barn !
