Portland is widely thought of as the microbrew capital of the U.S., while Oregon’s wines are winning accolades from far and wide. Nationally, beer gets a big promotional boost every year from award-winning Super Bowl commercials that cost more than $2 million each. You couldn’t be blamed for thinking that we live in a wine and beer-drinking world. However, just enter the search term “cocktails” on the internet and you’ll find a universe where there ...

The Register-Guard editorialized on Jan. 28 that the health care proposal put forward by President Bush in his State of the Union address is "modest," "fine," and "constructive." While the president's proposal may sound innocuous, it is not. It represents a radical departure from the very concept of insurance and pooling risk. It undermines Social Security and Medicare. It serves the goal of eliminating the social safety net and shifting all economic risk onto individual ... [full story]

Michael E. Toner, the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, last week estimated that the unofficial entry fee for the 2008 presidential race will be at least $100 million. Candidates who haven't raised that much by the end of 2007 might just as well not leave the barn. To raise $100 million, a candidate has to raise $8.33 million a month, almost $2 million a week, nearly $274,000 a day. Every hour of every day, ... [full story]

The incredible deceit by Big Tobacco continues. For decades, cigarette manufacturers marketed their products to minors, denied the addiction and medical harm their products caused and resisted efforts to make tobacco products less harmful. Now there is this: Harvard researchers this month released a study that confirmed findings reported last August by the state of Massachusetts showing that the levels of nicotine in at least four of the most popular brands of cigarettes were secretly ...

America's stiff upper lip is starting to quiver. At least that's what one may deduce from many of the noises coming from the halls of Congress these days. Resolutions attempting to undermine President Bush could be dismissed as ordinary political posturing if not for the demoralizing effect it has on our troops serving in Iraq. Paul A. Morin of Chicopee, Mass., is national commander of the 2.7 million-member American Legion, the nation's largest wartime veterans ... [full story]

Jan 26,2007
Critics of President Bush's Iraq policy have emphasized a particular message in recent weeks: "See, we told you so." In exchanges in print and online media, hard-line supporters of Bush's policy have found themselves on the defensive from self-congratulatory critiques by mainstream liberals as well as leftists. Many on the political right have brought much of the disappointment on themselves. They too often have sidestepped the enormous complications and difficulties involved in Bush's overall vision ...

Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft says in a new book that America's lone remaining enemy combatant, arrested in Peoria, Ill., in 2001, was not simply a credit-card scammer raising funds for al-Qaida but a disciple of Osama bin Laden pegged to head the "next wave" of suicide attacks in Los Angeles. If that's the case, and the U.S. Justice Department has the goods on Qatari national and former Bradley University graduate student Ali Saleh ... [full story]
