Islam and When Religious Tolerance Becomes Dangerous

In Philadelphia, a 5-year-old little girl was removed from school by a woman claiming to be her mother. The school didn’t quite follow proper procedures, and the end result was that the girl was missing for under 24 hours. The local press and news shows duly got the word out, and an Amber Alert was […]

Single Mom in PA? Better to Live on Welfare than Make $69,000

Single Mom in PA? Better to Live on Welfare than Make $69,000

If you are a single mom the entitlement programs offered in Pennsylvania are such that you are better off working for low pay than taking a good medium income position. There is little incentive to work hard and try to get a better position, including managerial, in a company because the government benefits often pay […]

No Time for the Anthem?

No Time for the Anthem?

The National Anthem is part of our sports heritage traditionally played at public sports events. But youth hockey players in Pennsylvania were told recently that the National Anthem intrudes too much into their game schedule and teams should take the anthem out. “The National Anthem should not be played only because of time constrains,” said  […]

Stupid People Should Not Be Allowed To Vote

Stupid People Should Not Be Allowed To Vote

Anywhere, but in particular, they should not be allowed to vote in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The court case drags on here, and the excuses keep piling up. When the logistical issue of having poll workers check ID’s was thrown out, they jumped to the problems for voters acquiring ID’s. Considering that all voters should […]

Dear Libertarians, 2012 Is Not Your Year

Dear Libertarians, 2012 Is Not Your Year

I am a card-carrying member of the GOP, primarily because I reside in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. As a fiscal conservative, I find myself agreeing more with the Libertarian platform, but it is not in my best interests to register as one. The Keystone State is not known for being groundbreaking in anything political, as […]

Stop Voter ID Laws – Stop Discriminating Against Dogs

Ironically enough, I found this one on Huffington Post. Yep, Buddy the voting dog. That is the most recent one, of course. Over the years there have been many stories of this kind, with people registering pets, and if memory serves, I think someone actually registered an inanimate object to vote. Now, the Dems might […]

Moody's Downgrades Pennsylvania

Moody’s Downgrades Pennsylvania

With Harrisburg already bankrupt and Scranton on the verge, Moody’s has decided to downgrade the state’s credit rating from Aa1 to Aa2. Citing unfunded pension liabilities, high debt and slow to moderate growth the rating agency also changed it’s outlook for Pennsylvania from negative to stable. On the upside, Moody’s says that the Government has […]

PA State Capitol

Pennsylvania State House Votes to Reduce its Size

Yes, it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, it is relatively rare. But before anyone starts thinking that the politicians voting to reduce the number of members that will be sitting on Pennsylvania’s Assembly floor are considering the possibility of surrendering their own positions for the greater good, think again. Yesterday’s passage of House […]

Rick Santorum and His Uphill Battle to the Convention

Aaron Blake almost got it absolutely right today, when giving the run-down on what Rick Santorum needs to do to survive in this primary. The five states mentioned are definitely must-wins. However, that goal does not exist in a vacuum, and is probably going to be affected by at least a few things that will […]

Pennsylvania Voter ID as the Left-Wing Hot-Button Issue

Voter ID has been the topic du-jour for the left-wing as an issue that will cause the end of voter freedom for millions of people. Well, maybe not millions, but quite a few. And all of those people have the absolute right to cast their ballots. Requiring that voters show valid identification is onerous, and […]

PA Senate Says Yes to School Choice

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2011  – One of the nation’s most populated and important political states today moved closer to adopting a full school choice program for its neediest children when its state Senate just passed SB 1, which moves to the House, as early as this week. “Kudos to the state’s courageous leadership, who put education […]
