Another lib/progressive state going broke.

Make half the State a National Forest and the federal government promises will make up for the lost timber revenues and then stop the payments... dying on the vine we are--and it has nothing to do with our liberal mind set

Yes, its the stupid libs and the marxist tree huggers that let a damn Owl and Salmon stop the timber cutting! You liberals need to look farther into the future not just to the end of your nose!

Somehow I don't believe that you can pin that one on the business friendly conservatives.

The CBO data shows that conservative voting states receive more in federal subsidies than the lib/progressive states.

That may be true, but luckily they know how to use them properly and are not the ones going bankrupt. Just check in with Ca. and Ill., two states with large dem/lib populations that do receive large fed. gov't payments. These have been squandered on excessive social programs and bloated and over staffed local gov't programs.

"They're feeling like they're getting a break for once," Smith said. "It's not like they're beating the system."

WHAT?!?! Of course they're beating the system, or more like the system isn't doing its job. They don't deserve a break. They were tried by a jury of their peers and ended up in jail because of their bad behavior. A 'break' is when you're 5 and steal a candy bar and have to give it back. You don't get a break when you're an adult and ASSAULT people or steal their identity, causing them immense amounts of stress and financial harm. Ridiculous.

Dear Friends,

Get some tents, they use them in AZ, they work well. Just chain them to a pole, and make them produce their own food and clothing. You can make a profit on them if you do it correctly.

All immates should be required to work 10 hours a day 6 days a week, and we would have tons of money, sell them out to farmers.

Bush did stand up for the federal subsidies that the Oregon community just lost. In fact, he NEVER vetoed a spending bill his eight years in office except the one for stem cell research which was going to help people.

As a kid growing up in a Farm Community honesty was stressed from the day I was old enough to understand. This was re enforced by the fact that the punishment for breaking laws was something to be avoided if at all possible. In my 18 years in that community we had only one incident of someone being shot to death. They (3 of them) tried to rob a store, two ended up dead in the street at the hand of the store owner. Coroners inquest ruled "Justified Homicide". Our little Museum had a picture from the 19th century of a man hanging from a Railroad Trestle out side of town. On the picture someone had written "Presumed Guilty". I realize that today all of that is next to impossible, but it sure was nice to grow up in a community that was safe enough my folks never even locked the house when we went out.

If this nation really wanted to save money and headaches then I think the best solution would be to buy an island far away from here and throw all our criminals there!! That would give them their freedom to roam around freely and not on our streets!! If murderers want to kill each other, it wouldn't bother me!! Survival of the fittest!! Then we wouldn't have to waste tax dollars to keep these prisons running!!

There's one sitting empty about 400 miles south of Grants Pass...still has the cells & mess hall. Little problem with it now being a national park called "Alcatraz" but hey...could work.

This part of Oregon is bigtime Republican bagger heaven, they got what they wanted, The Federal Govt ended thier subsidy and now they dont want to pay the taxes. They will get what they have coming. I'm all for austerity in Republican districts.

Dear Skatulaki,

Yes, lets cut off all aid to anybody that does not vote Democrat, we should take away all the land and property also..

It worked well in Gemany in 1936, just need some of them snappy brown shirts.

If the blind libs vote democrat this country will turn into another 1936 Germany.

We can just see the arguments by county officials..." You Don't Pass This Tax Increase, We Will Have to Release Prisoners" OK.. you did. If you have released the prisoners, and given up control of the lawbreakers why do we need the Sheriff, the Deputies, and the Prison Guards? Since the County has ceded virtual control of law enforcement and administration to its citizens, why do we need and County Administrators, County Employees, and other obvious Layabouts on the County Dole? In Three Weeks Grants Pass could have a 100% Surplus!

Probably wont be the first jail to do so.....this is what comes from debt funding. The future americans will be paying the debts of the past americans.

How nice. Her come the new neighbors.

each of these released criminals should be sent to live with one of the bunny huggers who caused all of this crap to happen in the first place. Spotted owl, give me a break. Put the tree and bunny huggers in jail for awhile. God I'm tired of this crap and the people who cause most of the problems go free and enjoy the praise and adulation of their peers. Well, I say screw them, let them lose what they've worked all their lives for in order to save a fish or a bird. what a bunch of crap.
