He also has been portraying Dan Meuser and Pride Mobility as being the benefactors of corporate welfare because the majority of their products are paid for by Medicare. Never mind that the disabled and elderly deserve to be able to get around. The issue I take is that the pinko is all for socialized medicine except when it comes to Pride's products. Why? Because Meuser is a republican? Is it hatred for disabled and elderly people? Kevin, you can't have it both ways. Everybody that works pays into medicare, is it so wrong to ask for some benefit from that money? Is it so wrong that a local company makes products to help people and gasp, gasp, a profit doing so??

Then he promises to provide universal healthcare. No mention of how he is going to pay for it. A very safe bet would be that middle and upper middle class taxpayers may notice a change in their take home pay. I doubt anybody that pays for it will think it was a good change.
He talked about the usual litany of socialist ideals. Mostly the old "it isn't fair that you don't make as much as the C.E.O. of your company. It's not your fault you dropped out of high school and push a broom and the C.E.O. has numerous degrees and works two to three times as many hours as you. You deserve the same pay! How farking patently ridiculous. It is obvious this tool has never worked in the private sector. Life isn't fair and the world needs ditch diggers too, get over it. How in the world do people actually fall for this line of shit?

I rarely agree with anything Corbett has to say but I sincerely hope he keeps his word and continues to hammer these politicians. They say people in this county have a coal cracker mentality. I say it is time to prove them wrong. I say we vote out all incumbent county seats. I say the new administration goes through every employee's file. If they got their job through connections, so sad, too bad, you're fired!!! It is time to stop the corruption. It is time to stop the cronyism. It is time to elect leaders that not only listen to the people but actually follow the will of the people. If the new crop follows this current crop, boom, out they go. I say we repeat the process until we get good leadership in all county offices. By good, I mean moral, ethical, and honest. I think a provision of law needs to put in place that we can impeach any county officeholder and have them removed!! I think the law should state that they be replaced by the people voting not appointed by a shitheel governor.

The real question is, do you want your country back? I beg your thoughts.

Does anybody out there doubt that we are already in a recession? It has been my experience that if you want to know the health of the economy you need to talk to only two groups of people. Builders and car dealers. When their businesses are off or in trouble, it is an excellent indication of where the economy is going. For some time now, both of those industries have been way off. The reason I use this a barometer is that people tend to buy vehicles and build houses when they have money and feel secure. I know their are foolish folks living above their means doing this but I am hoping they aren't the majority. The government just notices a problem now??? Typical.
The rescue package that every politician in DC is so proud of is a crock of shit!! People will use the money to pay bills. This will not inject any hard money into the economy. The major accomplishment of this "stimulus" package will be to just add more debt to the budget.
My real fear comes from a hard core liberal becoming president and repealing the tax cuts. Granted, I have saved some serious dough from them. I have also spent a great deal of the money on home improvements and other projects that I was putting off. This is the type of spending that stimulates the economy. My hiring contractors and subsequently them paying their employees who then buy things.......... get the picture? If people like me stop spending the economy stops.
Which of the candidates in the 10th and the 11th congressional districts will do what's best ofr us and the country? That is the $64,000 question. I can guarantee you that Carney and Kanjorski will do what is absolutely the worst job possible.
I am up in the air in the 10th but am leaning toward Meuser and obviously am all for Barletta in the 11th.

What I really want to talk about is the "hot button" bullshit that is being thrown about. Universal Healhtcare, really social medicine, my question is this; How do you pay for it? By the Dem's numbers there are 48 million people without health insurance in this country. That is roughly 1/6 of our population. I have a novel idea to see how many people really support it. The other 5/6 of the population pay the exact same amount for it. That's right, if it comes down to $2,000. per household (number pulled from rectum), and we all pay the same for it, let it pass. If it is another "you make more than average, you pay for it" scheme, let it die the death it deserves. To you liberals (read socialists), put your money where your mouth is. You want it, then help pay for it, regardless of what you earn.
The death peanlty; You want to know why it isn't a deterrent? It is rarely enforced. Look at George Banks as a local reference. He never denied that he is guilty. His asshole lawyers have drug it out through appeals this long( over 2 decades). Now they claim he is crazy from being on death row so long. WTF?
Fair Tax, there is no such thing in America. Very few people actually pay tax in our country. As a matter of fact, the top 20% of wage earners pay 90% of all the revenue collected by the Infernal Revenue Service. That means, for all you folks bad at math, that 80% of our population pays only 10% of the taxes collected. Don't believe me? www.irs.gov Look it up yourself. The next time you want to whine about tax cuts for the "rich" just do everyone a favor and STFU.
Illegal immigration is a joke. We don't enforce the laws we have and they all want new ones. What a friggin tragic comedy. The genie is out of the bottle, you aren't going to get it back in. The Pol that figures out a reasonable solution to this will have my unwavering support.
The 10th race; Mr. Hackett, please stop with ads about how you created thousands of jobs. You didn't, you merely supply temps for jobs that are already created. If I see that stupid ad one more time, I swear, I'll go out of my way to support Meuser. Your ad is an out and out lie, which is the last thing our party needs in this district. Please keep your ads focuused on the real issues. You are, in fact, a great businessman, leave it at that.

I keep checking Hackett's website to see when he is having a similiar event. So far, the only thing on there is a petition signing party at his headquarters in Dallas on February 4th, I think. If anybody knows when he is having a meet and greet, please leave a comment here. I would like to attend one of his events as well. Just not one at his HQ.
WILKES-BARRE – A former maintenance director at Penn State Wilkes-Barre waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Central Court on Thursday in connection with the misuse of a university-issued debit card for personal use.
Reese T. Smith, 46, of Stillwater, waived 234 counts of theft, 78 counts of access-device fraud and a single count of tampering with records to Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.
University police charged Smith used the debit card to purchase items totaling $17,456 from March 2001 to November 2007, according to arrest records.
Amazing, this guy, over 6 years abuses his debit card to the tune of about $3k per year and is facing 312 criminal counts. Hyder can't even find receipts for more than that from one year. Not only is Hyder not being charged with anything, he keeps his job and gets a raise. If this doesn't make steam come out of your ears, you are either brain dead or a member of the infamous Luzerne County Liberal Democrat ruling class. Have you figured out the difference between Hyder and this guy? They are both criminals but one of them has very powerful friends to protect him.
