… Tom Wolf is an Idiot [#PA Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 12th,2016

.. you may ask , who is he ? ..

.. he was the only DemoCrap candidate for Governor in 2014 that defeated a Republican . So is not a nobody . Also , Pennsylvania is a purple state . It is a state that the Dems have owned for years , and that the GOP largely now controls [except for the Governor ‘ s chair]…

.. so , the guy matters ..

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. he vetoed a liquor privatization bill recently . PA is one of the most heavily centralized liquor sales monopolies in the nation . So it is a setup that is ripe for an overhaul . But , entrenched interests [including unions] do not want an overhaul …

.. but one is needed . It is very badly needed . Eventually , it will happen . But not now , courtesy of Wolf …

… Micheal Nutter should know better [#cigarette taxes]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 1st,2014

.. and so should the Pennsylvania legislature …

.. it seems that Micheal Nutter is going to have to learn a hard lesson …

.. he is the mayor of Philadelphia . He wants to jack up cigarette taxes in the City of Brotherly Love …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. a lot . I do mean a lot …

.. the mayors of New York City have learned this lesson …. The hard way …

.. they have had a massive explosion of cigarette smuggling into N.Y.C. . Those dummies sit on the state line of two states , including New Jersey …

… those states do not have to do a think to profit from this . Now , Philly is going to have to learn the lesson …

.. Cigarette smuggling pays , dummy . Especially if you are on or near a state border . It also ends up wasting a lot of police manpower and time , stuff that can be better put to use elsewhere …

… Earl Tomblin must have a Death Wish …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 4th,2014

.. Earl Ray Tomblin is the current Governor of West Virginia . How long he wants to remain in that job is really open to question ..

.. When Election Day comes this fall , no state is likely to get hit by the ” Red ” tide (relatively speaking) more than West Virginia . It has been forever since either chamber of the West VA legislature has been in GOP hands . This fall , that is likely to change . the West VA House is currently narrowly in DemoCrap control . That will likely flip to Red . The West Va Senate is a little more delicate . Iff it gets close enough , some of the Dems could be persauded to switch sides . Then , most likely , both chambers will be in GOP hands …

.. Tomblin will have to wipe his own fanny the next time out . West Virginia is almost suredly to be Red in the next Presidential election , so the topof the ticket will be no help . That candidate and Tomblin will both be wrapped around the failed policies of His Lordship , so it will be interesting to see whether he runs for re – election , or not . There will be no U.S. Senate race the next time , so Joe Manchin will not be able to save his fanny , either …

.. Bye , Bye , Earl !!

… Kathleen Kane has a Death Wish …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 30th,2014

.. she is the current Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania . She is the first female in the job …

.. she first came to my noice over a same – sex marriage case in Pennsylvania . She rather drolly put it that she (and her office) were going to refuse to defend the State ‘ s Defense of Marriage Act [similar to the federal one ] …

.. she may think it is constitutional , she may that it is not constitutional , but it is a part of her job ; It is a ministerial duty . She has to defend it in court , whether she likes it or not . There is no middle ground ; She has to do it …

.. Now , there is this monster of a corruption case , especially in Greater Philadelphia . However , according to her , it is racist , since it nails the Legislative Black Democratic Caucus as a principal target . She has been catching all sorts of hell for it …

.. [h/t — Philly.com]..
.. [link] to the newspaper article …

.. she is going to get roasted over this when she runs for re – election . Also , this monumental blunder will land right in the middle of this fall ‘ s Governor ‘ s race . Tom Corbett is running for re – election , and he has been having troubles , to say the least . Being able to be a law – and – order hard case is always a winner for any politician …

… The Gettysburg Address [the Sesquicentennial] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 19th,2013

.. today is the 150th anniversary (or , sesquicentennial) of President Abraham Lincoln ‘ s famed oration at the dedication of the National Military Cemetary at Gettysburg , Pennsylvania .

.. The cemetary itself was not complete . The workers for the government were still finding bodies (Union and Confederate) all over the place . Many , many wounded were still being put up in and around the immediate area of the battle , and , due to the medical standards of the time , men were still dying of their battle wounds .

.. President Lincoln was not the primary orator invited to the event . Far from it . The famed ambassador , governor , and well – known orator Edmund Everett was the one that was the focus of attention . Mr. Lincoln was invited to give a few ” appropriate remarks . ”

.. Boy , were they ever ” appropriate . ” Ambassador Everett knew right away the importance of the speech , saying (I think) ” I wish I had gotten the point of the event in two hours , where you , Mr. President , have done so in two minutes . ” Thank you , Mr. President .

.. as to the Civil War , oh yeah , it was still going on . the combined battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge are but a week away . Most of the rest of the campaigning had ceased for the winter , a bit early . Given the brawling throughout 1863 , I am not surprised at that .

.. As to our current President , not now . I will comment on his actions at another time . Here is my presentation of a reproduction of President Lincoln ‘ s Gettysburg Address …

ADDRESS DELIVERED AT THE DEDICATION OF THE CEMETERY  AT GETTYSBURG.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the  proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.  We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to  dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who  here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate— we can not consecrate—we can not hallow— this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us— that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—  that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
November 19. 1863.

… Elections 2013 [New Jersey] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 11th,2013

.. well , Chris Christie won , and in a blowout .

.. He did very , very well in many demographics . Across the board . Women . Jews . Hispanics . Others . Even narrowed the

Governor of New Jersey at a town hall in Hills...

… Chris Christie , the re – elected Governor of New Jersey … (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

GOP deficits in the New Jersey House and in the New Jersey Senate .

.. Now , the speculation begins for 2016 . Can Christie win a 2016 general election ? You bet your boots he can . He can bring New Jersey and Delaware along , include Pennsylvania , and also put New York and Connecticut into play . It puts one hell of a dent into the DemoCraps ‘ playground .

.. You can also include potentially putting California into play . Potentially . If he can put New York into play , and grab New Jersey , along with Pennsylvania , California is possibly gettable . Expensive , yes . But gettable .

.. Christie now has an added year at his back . He has been re – elected (overwhelmingly , no less) , and can go out on the campaign trail , and collect chits from other candidates . He can stake out his positions before the presidential primary season , and can promote what he believes in , by who he chooses to support . From that , he can benefit quite a bit . We shall see …

… on Kermit Gosnell …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 4th,2013

suspect # 1

suspect # 1

mass murderer !!

mass murderer !!

.. I was typing my impressions on my laptop , based upon the FoxNewsChannel special on Friday , May 3rd , 2013 . It gave , at least to me , a fairly full , yet succint account of Kermit Gosnell , and his antics . I am including a copy of the Grand Jury Report , for those who want to read it . I have , for the most part . Once the trial is over , I am going to re-read it , in detail .

.. and , do so on an empty stomach .

.. my god , what a murderous butcher !

.. what is taking the criminal trial jury so long . It is a plain and simple , cut and

dried case . He should and will be found guilty , but of what . the Grand Jury Rpt . is

comprehensive , complete , and horrifying .

.. K.G. was never a board – certified ob – gyn , as are most murderer/abortionistas .

He took advantage of many , many people , his circumstances , his beginnings , his

situation , and , most of all , the patients to which their care was entrusted to him

and his staff .

.. He began taking advantage of people early on (early 1970s) , from Chicago , pre –

Roe . Mutilated many of them .

.. Charged outrageous rates for murders . especially late – term and illegal ones .

Became notorious throughout the Eastern U.S. for his late – term antics , and for his butchery , yet people did nothing about it . Why ?

.. Delivered live babies , yes , live , and murdered them . Falsified records .

Horrendously imcompetent and barbaric pratice , if one can call it that .

.. [PUKE !!]

.. delivered “slits” to the back of a number of infants ‘ necks , thus killing them .

His staff finally , at least , showed some sense of humanity , and began documenting

what was happening  .

.. The “conditions” at the Gosnell clinic were beyond barbaric and horrendous . How

could politicians in Pennsylvania (Ridge & Rendell Administrations) stand by and do

absolutely nothing , for so many years . Especially since the news of what was going on

, where , when , and why , and to whom , gradually was getting out .

… more to come ! My God !!

… Those Knuckleheads have struck Again !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 6th,2012

… Yea , Those Knuckleheads have struck again…

… Yea , I am talking about the New Black Panther Party, god in heaven help us all …

the New Black Panthers Strike Again !!

… Today is Election Day , and those idiots are in a Philadelphia county polling place . For those who are the uninitiated , Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania is where the city of Philadelphia is located …

… those numskulls entered into a consent agreement with the ObamaCrap Department of Injustice almost two years ago . It was done in order to beat foot on the response of the House Dems to the complaints of the House GOP , with the impending likely blowout at the midterm elections in 2010 almost at hand . Unfortunately , the consent agreement that was entered into was a real “limp noodle.” These goons were using guns at the entrance to several polling places , and the DofiJ enters into a consent agreement, with no criminal charges at all ?

                                                                                           Outrageous !!!!
