When will progressives learn that you cannot wish something into existence. You cannot take over a segment of the economy that is SO personal, so important, and so confidential just because you think you know more than the great unwashed whose tax revenues are paying for the latest state debacle.

Why weren't these millions allocated to providing MEDICAL CARE? Will someone answer? Instead we have stupid commercials that say nothing, idiotic cartoon billboards and a website that doesn't work.

Meanwhile right before Christmas, people with serious health concerns are being stressed by the lack of competence at all levels in Obamacare.

Whose dumb idea was it to take over healthcare?

While the amount of the targeted change was to be roughly 2 percent, investors read a lot more into the move. The Renminbi had been gradually appreciating against the U.S. dollar (see chart) as to attempt to alleviate concerns of being labeled a currency manipulator.

In 2010 Vanessa Keitges and several investors purchased Portland-based Columbia Green Technologies, a green-roof company.

CEO Keitges, 40, a Southern Oregon native who serves on President Obama’s Export Council, talks about market innovation, scaling small business and why Oregon is falling behind in green-roof construction.

Most of the food Americans consume is trucked in from hundreds of miles away. Eric Wilson, co-founder and CEO of Gro-volution, wants to change that. So this past spring, the Air Force veteran and former greenhouse manager started work on an alternative farming system he claims is more efficient than conventional agriculture, and also shortens the distance between the consumer and the farm.

In 1996, after a 17-year career in the destination marketing industry, where I gained national standing as the CEO of the Convention & Visitors Association of Lane County, I was recruited by the founders of a new professional basketball league for women. The American Basketball League (ABL) hoped to leverage the success of the 1996 USA women’s national team at the Atlanta Olympics — much like USA Soccer is now leveraging the U.S. Women’s National Team’s victory in the World Cup. The ABL wanted a team in Portland, and they wanted me to be its general manager.
