A lot to write about today

It just keeps getting better and better in Luzerne County if you happen to like to write about corruption. Judge Conahan's brother-in-law is the latest beneficiary of our tax dollars. Over $800,000. in the last 4 years. Two hundred thou per year!!!! Holy marthafocker, I am doing something wrong in my life. I need to get myself a relative/buddy in power at the court house.

Scrapheap points out that Urban recommended somebody to bid on supplying the prison with produce. Unlike Scrap, Urban's boy did a whopping $5,000. with the prison. For those who don't remember, Scrap's boy did $700 thou and change. yep Greg, Urban's on the same level as you, not. By the way Greg, how much of the $700,000 did you get?????????????

Our wonderful congressman from the 10TH is showing that he really represents his constituents. He is one of those strange beings known as a super delegate that will actually pick the next democrat to run in the general election. His district voted overwhelmingly for Billary Hatestherod,man Clinton. Yet Carney won't say who he is going to back. I think the only reason for this is that he didn't get his orders from Pelosi yet.

An anti-gun nuts letter to the Times Leader

I only included the link in case somebody actually wanted to read this tripe. I can sum it up for you. Essentially, his point is that guns kill people and should be outlawed. Well Mr. Douche water reclamation specialist, I have some important info for you. Cars kill far more people than guns. I say outlaw them. Knives kill people, outlaw them. Baseball bats kill people, outlaw them. Alcohol kills people, outlaw it. Prescription medications can kill, yep, outlaw them. Trains occasionally kill people, people's fists do as well, water occasionally drowns people, an 82 year old woman just killed a motorcyclist, I say outlaw them all. Don't even get me started on hurricanes, tornadoes, fire, diabetes, lightning, obesity, smoking, boredom, and scorned women.

A few things I want a politician to clarify for me

While I sincerely doubt any of them would be brave enough, I'd like to know a few things.

I constantly hear the terms middle class and the wealthy. These are usually bandied about when they are talking about taxes and or tax cuts. I want just one of them to put a dollar figure on what makes a family of four poor, middle class, or wealthy. To make it simple for them, they can base it on the good people living right here in NEPA. Please put it in terms of household income. I know the dollar value would be considerably higher in other areas so please don't bother..

I hear a lot of talk about ending the tax cuts for the "rich". I want just one of them to address the fact that 40% of Americans pay nothing in federal income tax. As a matter of fact, this group of people tends to get money that they never paid in if you know what I mean. I want to know three things. 1. How is this fair? and 2. Would we have a balanced budget if every American paid income tax? and 3. How is it fair that the wealthiest twenty percent of Americans pay NINETY PERCENT of all money collected by the Infernal Revenue Service? (yes, you read that right, 80 % of Americans collectively pay only 10% of the tax burden).

This one is just for Hillary and Obama. Lord knows I'm not a McCain fan, but I keep hearing that if anybody votes for him, they are voting for the war in Iraq. If I'm not mistaken, all 3 of these whackers have said that an immediate withdrawal of troops is impossible. Does that mean a vote for any of them is a vote for the war??????

I am an ass

Yesterday I was on the phone with one of the candidates that didn't win their primary. Unfortunately, like a typical douchebag, I Monday morning quarterbacked. It was a mistake and I am truly sorry. That was the absolute last thing you needed to hear. It is very easy to pass judgement ex post facto and a whole lot harder to make the call before the outcome.
Sincerest apologies,

An interesting article and a must read for employers

Congratulations to Hackett

I am stunned that he actually won. I truly believe the better man for the job lost. Maybe I am wrong but I thought people were tired of negative campaigns. I guess not. Regardless of who you were for in this primary, we now need to get behind Hackett for the general election. We need this seat back. Congratulations Chris! Please turn your dogs lose on Carney now, it worked against Meuser and I really do want you to beat Carney.

The debate tonight on WVIA

I sincerely hope everybody watches this. Regardless of what side you're on, you should know where your candidate stands.

With that said, here are some questions I'd like to see asked.

To Hackett:
Will you start calling your campaign the RMS Titanic now or wait until after losing the primary?

After losing the primary, will you go on record and acknowledge that Toomey and Madeira are farktards? As a follow up, will you ever speak to them again?

Do you regret going negative solely because you were so far behind in the polls?

As the intelligent man that you are, do you regret the damage you've done to your own party with your campaign's mudslinging?

To Meuser:
After winning back the seat in the 10Th, how will you ensure an open dialogue with your constituents?

As a Congressman, what changes would you push for to help take America out of the role of being the world's policemen?

What is your position on that failed entity known as the United Nations?

With our country running in deficit, will you advocate a change to Foreign Aid until America is in a fiscal position to actually give money away?

What changes would you recommend to help ensure a more level playing field in regards to helping make American manufacturers competitive on the world stage?

Will you advocate more refineries be built to ease the burden of gas, diesel, and heating oil prices?

Considering that my tax return is thicker than many novels, will you advocate a simpler, more fair tax plan?

Will you advocate adding more human intelligent assets on foreign soil to make up for the vast number that were eliminated under Clinton?

I could go on but am hoping anybody reading this posts their own questions in the comments.

Another Black eye for Luzerne County Government

As has been covered on Gort's blog, Scrapheap's best friend Sam "I am the Problem" Guesto has really screwed the pooch this time. He even has Petrilla after his head. Poor old Scrap has no comment. Well, no shit Sherlock. He is your boy and doesn't so much as blow his nose without your permission. The fact that the warden has come out and said he was present when Guesto ordered the no bid bullshit has to be taken very seriously. He has put his job on the line for telling the truth. No matter what Petrilla says, Guesto should be suspended without pay immediately. Scrap should take a leave of absence until the investigation is complete. If laws were broken, and it sure as fark looks that way, certain local political hacks need 3 hots and a cot courtesy of the state for a few years. That includes you, scrap!!! The one amazing question I have is, who is this outside agency that is conducting the investigation????

Obomber and his latest foot in mouth problem

I poke some fun at politicos and their various mistakes but this one takes the farkin cake. Rule number one if you are a politician; never talk about guns. Obama's record shows him to be a rabid gun control advocate. Many people were unaware of this, so what does donkey ears do, brings it right to the fore front. You can google his record and if I'm lying, I'll not only kiss your ass, I'll give you three days to draw a crowd to watch. This grab the guns from the law abiding piece of shit got caught in his own real opinion. The fact is, if you're anti second amendment like this farktard and want to win office, you have to keep that shit to yourself. People like me, the disenfranchised, bitter, religious, gun owners don't take kindly to you liberal crack pots. I am not a redneck, backwards, misanthrope. I am a successful, educated guy. I have a PhD from U.H.K. If any of you don't know the school, ask and I'll tell. So listen up you piece of shit limousine liberal, you only offended about half of America. Rule number two for people running for national office; Don't mention religion when yours is at the fookin least, very suspect. Your church, on their own website claims an unwavering support for Africa and your pastor curses America's very existence. Are you completely retarded????????

I wish this guy was running our county!!!!

TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO, HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY:Sheriff Joe Arpaio (In Arizona) who created the 'Tent City Jail':He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails.

Took away their weights Cut off all but 'G' movies.He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.Then He Started Chain Gangs For Women So He Wouldn't Get Sued For Discrimination.He took away cable TV Until he found out there was a Federal Court Order that Required Cable TV For Jails So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel.When asked why the weather channel He Replied, So They Will Know How Hot Its Gonna Be While They Are Working ON My Chain Gangs.He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value.When the inmates complained, he told them, 'This Isn't The Ritz/Carlton...If You Don't Like It, Don't Come Back.'He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place. More On The Arizona Sheriff:With Temperatures Being Even Hotter Than Usual In Phoenix (116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), the Associated Press Reports:About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent Encampment At The Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued Pink Boxer Shorts.On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 Degrees Inside

The Week Before.

Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS.'It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,' Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. 'It's Inhumane.'Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic.

He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: 'Its 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear,But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes, So Shut Your Damned Mouths!'Way To Go, Sheriff!Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commitanother crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

The 10th Congressional District Primary

Am I the only one that finds it amusing that everything Hackett's campaign has thrown at Meuser has blown up in their faces? These are the two that I find the most amusing.

1. their lob: Pride hired illegals.
shit and the fan: Hackett not only hired an illegal to work in his home. He paid her under the table. He didn't turn her in to le migre(sp?) I mean god dang, how fookin stupid can you be?

2. their lob: Meuser gave money to democrats.
shit and the fan: Hackett not only donated 80% of his poltical money to dems he also gave Greg "pay to play" Scrapheap $5,000 and mysteriously ended up with a $700,000 county contract. The answer to the above question, this fookin stupid.

Mr. Hackett, if I may be so bold, you should tell your campaign rats to tell you what they think is the right direction and then you should do the exact opposite. Hell, you couldn't do yourself any more harm than they have.

Today's Brass Balls Award

The owner of Commonwealth Foods, the leader in the no-bid bullshit, has the farkin nerve to complain. He did $1.1 million in no-bid business with the county. If he was working on just a 33% margin(very low for what he sells), he made $330,000. in just 4 years. That equates to $82,500 per year. Please compare that with the median salary for Luzerne County!!! I beg of all the commissioners and any other politician in power, please accept my $5,000 donation ( the very same amount he gave Scrapneck) in exchange for $82,500 per year. Now that's a good investment!!!!

The real cost of illegal immigrants

Boy, am I confused. I have been hammered with the propaganda that it is the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be RIDICULOUS. I hope the following 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them.
I have included the URL's for verification of all the following facts.

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year.

2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies. /01/ldt.01.html

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
[$1,085,000,000 per year... Do the math.]

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.

9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the U.S.

11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border.
Homeland Security Report:

12. The National Policy Institute, 'estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.'

13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. http://www.rensecom/general75/niht.htm

14. 'The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States '.

The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR! Are we THAT stupid???

Official Obama Campaign Pin

Notice the similarity of the ears?

Media Bias does exist I heard it on the radio today!

This morning while listening to Kevin Lynn hammer at Dan Meuser, I couldn't help but compare the Pinko's questions to Dan with other politicos he has had on. Chris Carney calls in and the hardest question he gets from Pinkie is "Congressman Carney, may I lick the sweat from your ass?" Senator Casey calls in, the hardest question he gets is "what's your favorite flavor of ice cream?" Skrep calls in and he gets "Greg, would you consider dating a middle aged, pinko, radio talk show host?" I think I may see a pattern here. If you are a democrat, you get a pass from the pinkster.

I wonder what Hackett's response will be

April 3, 2008
A Special Message from Dan Meuser

NE Caucus of Republican State Committee asks Congressional Candidates to Sign Positive Campaign PledgeMeuser Signs Pledge and asks Hackett to Join Him for the sake of the Party
Conservative Republican Congressional Candidate Dan Meuser signed a pledge to run a positive campaign. The pledge was written and distributed by the Northeast Caucus of the Republican State Committee of Pennsylvania. (Click here to view the Pledge)
“I want to thank Chairman Matthew Brann and all the well respected county chairs that put this pledge together,” Meuser said. “Unfortunately, my opponent in this campaign has already resorted to negative attacks, but I am hopeful the urging of local Republican Party leaders will convince him to reconsider his tactics.”
“I signed this pledge to run a positive campaign for three reasons: It’s the right thing to do and people of our area want to see it; it is in the best interest of the Republican Party; and it will give us the best chance to defeat Chris Carney and take back this seat. Thus far, my opponent has attempted to bring this primary down to the level of Clinton and Obama primary tactics. I hope he’ll join me in keeping this campaign focused on the issues that matter to the 10th District.”
The pledge would ban negative advertising from both the principle campaign group of each candidate as well as third party groups who support the candidates. We also pledge to defend ourselves if the other candidate launches negative attacks.
Campaign Manager Eric Wallace said that the campaign would do everything possible to keep to the pledge and noted that every time Hackett has attacked Dan, it has backfired.
In recent weeks Hackett has been forced to admit that he hired illegal aliens both at his business and in his home, the latter of which he did not pay Social Security and Medicare taxes and he has refused to release payroll records or the last name of the illegal so an outside source can verify his account. (Hackett Had Illegals Working IN His Home; Times Leader, March 27)
Hackett also was caught “exaggerating” his role of recruiting a company to the area when the CFO of the company, 3CI, said that not only had Hackett not had anything to do with their decision to relocate here but that he terminated his company because he was dissatisfied with their service. Hackett has spoke about recruiting this company for months on the campaign trail. (The Daily Item, 3/21/08)
Hackett has attacked Dan Meuser’s record at Pride Mobility but it came to light in the last few days that Chris Hackett is currently being sued in federal court for questionable business practices. (US District Court of New Jersey, Civil Docket #1-06-cv-03951-RBK-JS)
Hackett has given 80% of his political contributions to Democrats, of which thousands of dollars went to Luzerne County Democrats and resulted in an over $700,000 pay to play, no bid contract. (Times Leader, 1/12/06) “Chris Hackett should be very careful before engaging in a negative campaign,” Campaign Manager Eric Wallace said. “Chris Hackett has a record of hypocrisy including hiring illegal aliens in his home, making up his record on job recruitment, donating to Democrats and receiving county contracts as well as currently being sued in federal court for questionable business practices. As Dan has stated time and time again, he wants to run a positive campaign but forced to he will vigorously defend himself. Given these examples of Hackett’s hypocrisies and even more additional troubling material, we will have plenty of issues to do so with.”
“As the final three weeks of the campaign unfold we will present our plans for growing the economy, protecting Social Security and bringing much needed infrastructure/transportation improvements to Northeast and Central Pennsylvania because that is what really is at stake on April 22nd” Meuser said.
“It will be very harmful to the Republican Party’s ability to gain this seat if Hackett continues his attacks and forces us to respond with this long list of hypocrisy,” Wallace stated. “By signing this pledge as Dan has, it will be a clear sign that we can get back to the issues and we urge Chris Hackett to listen to our party’s leaders and sign and abide by this pledge.”

Understanding Tax Cuts because the Dems keep bringing it up!!

"Understanding Tax Cuts"
David R. Kamerschen, Ph.D
Professor of Economics, University of Georgia .
Sometimes politicians, journalists and the liberal left exclaim;"It's just a tax cut for the rich!" and it is just accepted to be fact.But what does that really mean?Just in case you are not completely clear on this issue, I hope thefollowing will help. Please read it carefully.Let's put tax cuts in terms everyone can understand.
Suppose that every day, ten men go out for dinner and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would pay $1. The sixth would pay $3. The seventh would pay $7. The eighth would pay $12. The ninth would pay $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59. So, that's what they decided to do. The ten men ate dinner in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. "Since you are all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20." Dinner for the ten now cost just $80. The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free. But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fairshare?' They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to eat their meal. So, the restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay. And so: The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings). The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% savings).The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28% savings). The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings). The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to eat for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings."I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the sixth man.He pointed to the tenth man," but he got $10!""Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got ten times more than me!""That's true!!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!""Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.The next night the tenth man didn't show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him. But when it came time to pay the bill,they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up any more.In fact, they might start eating overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

A few things on my mind

I keep hearing Hillary and Obama talking about getting rid of the tax cuts for the wealthy ads. I want one of these two douche bags to spit out the number that decides you are wealthy. Is it $50,000 per year, is it $100,000 or what? I want them to tell us, by income bracket, what will happen to our taxes when they are elected. Will we pay more or less? I got an e mail from a tax watch group that more or less told me that my taxes would go up by over $8000 per year if either is elected. Believe me folks, I'm not rich. Why don't they spell out how much more uncle sam will take from us by income bracket? Why don't they tell the masses who really pays taxes in America? Why do they talk about cutting taxes for people that don't pay tax? Why do they insist on making it a class warfare issue? Why don't they talk about immediately suspending all foreign aid until we are not running at a deficit? Why don't they talk about pork barrel projects? The answer to all of the above is that the masses don't want the truth. They can't handle the truth. The masses want to believe the fantasy that the working poor fuel our economy. The reality is folks that the middle and upper middle class drive the economy. Unlike the farktard politicians I'll tell you the number. Families with a household income above above $80,000 fuel our economy. We spend a lot of money. We buy a lot of crap we don't need. We spend because we can and want to. What will happen when they take even more money from us? I'll tell you, we will spend less. We will be very deliberate in our purchases. The result? The economy will really tank. I don't know about you, but I need a thriving America, I want a thriving America. How about you???
