Are You Ready for Primary '08?

The primary is around the corner and the time to pick up your petition is now!

It's a simple process - go to the county courthouse, stop at the election office, and tell them what position you want. They will hand you a petition. Take it home and have people in your district sign it (they must be of the same political party).

If you run for school board, you will want to cross-file. This simply means to register as both a Republican and a Democrat to obtain maximum votes.

And let's be honest - there is a real need for school board candidates in Grove City. The current crop has raised taxes each year for multiple years. This year, five of the nine seats are up for re-election. It's a perfect opportunity to see real change - positive change in the district.

You are needed!
- The taxpayers need you, for they have been fleeced for too long
- The teachers need you, for they have been harassed by the administration for too long
- The students need you, for their programs have been mismanaged and cut for too long

Get on board! If you need help, e-mail me - I'll gladly help!

Porter becomes Pennsylvania's Al Gore Jr.

File this story under "Waaaaaah! I refuse to admit that I lost!"

Dr. Steven Porter, the two-time loser against US Representative Phil English has decided to sue English for misrepresenting what Porter wrote in his own book.

Come again?

Hat tip to The Herald (Sharon, PA).

It seems that the English campaign took quotes from "The Ethics of a Democracy" and used them against Porter. Porter claims the words don't represent what he thinks.

This isn't the first tantrum for Porter, either. After his most recent defeat, he went on a tirade against his own party for not supporting him.

Clearly, this guy is off his rocker. He was stomped twice - by margins of 20% and 10%, respectively. Also, his book title indicates that he thinks we live in a democracy, when it is clearly a republic. But when do facts stop liberals?

Although I am no Phil English fan - the guy will sell out conservative economic policy at the drop of a hat to please his union supporters - Steven Porter is very much a dangerous man. He has some viewpoints that make Hillary look like Reagan. Yeah, he's that far left.

Northwest PA has sent him packing twice. It's too bad he doesn't get it.

Dunn Trial Pushed Back Over Venue, Statements to Police

The murder trial of Scott Dunn has been delayed for another month as the defense has requested a change of venue and that Dunn's statements to police be stricken from evidence.

Hat tip to The Herald (Sharon, PA):
Originally set for Wednesday when Dunn’s attorney filed the motions last month, the pre-trial hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. March 7 before Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas R. Dobson.

Mercer County District Attorney James P. Epstein said scheduling problems are one reason for the delay.

Epstein said the prosecution also needs time to collect more information on Dunn’s request to move the trial. Epstein has said that though there have been requests, none have been granted in the past 30 years in the county.

Misko asks the court to suppress statements Dunn made to Grove City and state police because he requested an attorney prior to, during and after making them.

The murder of Brandi Montgomery Dunn was well over a year ago. It would be nice to see this trial underway in the very near future. Thankfully, Scott Dunn isn't allowed (by PA law) to be out on bail.

Liberals and Their Blame-America-First Attitude

CBS Evening News is starting a new feel-good news segment. Katie Couric is the one on the commercial that received a lot of airtime during the Super Bowl. In case anyone at CBS is wondering why their news programs are the worst rated in the industry, take note of how The Perky One starts the ad.
We hear a lot about what's wrong with America....
Considering how much CBS anchors do their best to blame and slander America each chance they get, no one should be surprised by Katie's statement. There is no doubt that there are bad Americans (criminals, anti-capitalist activists, troop bashers), but Katie mentions what is wrong with America....

Aparently the greatest, freest, strongest, richest, most compassionate country in the history of the planet isn't up to Katie's standards. To liberals, America is the most polluting, corrupting, overpowering, imperialist nation in the history of the planet. They won't be happy until our great country is as good as Cuba.

Hillary Lays Out Socialist Dream for American Companies


In a recent speech, Hillary Clinton showed her socialist stripes by declaring:
The other day the oil companies reported the highest profits in the history of the world. I want to take those profits and I want to put them into a strategic energy fund that will begin to fund alternative smart energy alternatives and technologies....
That's right. She wants to take the money from a legitimate private business and give it to the government.

As if the government can even compete with the private sector when it comes to research and development...

As if the government has any rights to somone else's profits! The oil companies, like any other company, is in business to make money. They take those "record" profits (record by dollar amount, not counting inflation) and do a multitude of things with it. Most of it goes back into the company for R&D. A lot of it goes to shareholders (that would be you and your 401k). And the remaining goes to employees.

Shrillary acts as if one or two guys are walking off with billions of dollars. She discounts the tens of thousands of people who work for those companies (and the families they support).

Oddly, we never hear about Democrats whining and complaining when their Hollywood buddies make record profits for movies and acting contracts....

Phil Gets Political

Even the world's most famous rodent has jumped on the global warming bandwagon!

In a very rare moment, Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow, indicating an early spring. According to FoxNews.com:

Since 1886, Phil has seen his shadow 96 times, hasn't seen it 15 times and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. The last time Phil failed to see his shadow was in 1999.

Of course, I'm being silly about the global warming connection. But in this day of political weathercasting, how can one be sure? Besides - you know someone is going to take the "word" of a chubby rat as proof that manmade global warming exists.

Want to open your mind about global warming? Read this brilliant piece from Rush Limbaugh. It's loaded with facts and research - and a boatload of common sense!
