Sestak Living Wage April Fool

Sestak Living Wage April Fool
Joe says if a dog can live on $1.78 per hour so can my staffers.

Sy Snyder of PoliticsPa.Com has a story about Sestak for Senate’s fine young staffer Jason Turner who just sent out a ghostwritten yarn for the Admiral about how the minimum wage must be raised.

“How can we expect anyone to live on $7.25 per hour?” asked Jason.

Jason is being paid $448.50 ever two weeks, reports Snyder, which comes out to $1.78 per hour.

Hey Jason, it’s April Fool’s Day. Joe is just goofing with you about you getting a raise.

James May Unemployment Channel

James May is unemployed. It has driven him to this.

Yes, he is recording himself playing flute music — British Grenadiers in this case —   and uploading the videos to YouTube. Curse you Barack Obama and all Democrats.

Don’t let this man be senator even if it does mean he eats that helpless dog.

Hunting Ground Concerns College Rape

The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) will partner with Oscar-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering and their film “The Hunting Ground” to increase awareness around preventing sexual violence on college campuses, according to Adam Kulikowski of the Center. The collaboration coincides with the start of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a national prevention campaign facilitated annually by NSVRC. Hunting Ground Concerns College Rape

To kick off their partnership, NSVRC and “The Hunting Ground” — along with co-sponsors Women Organized Against Rape and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape — will host a panel discussion after a  showing of the film at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 3, at the Landmark Ritz Five Theatre, 214 Walnut St., Philadelphia. The panel discussion will feature the film’s producer, Ms.  Ziering, and state and local experts.

“The Hunting Ground,” which concerns sexual assault on U.S. campuses, has received more than two thousand requests from colleges and universities to host screenings of the film.

“‘The Hunting Ground’ is a powerful documentary that underscores the widespread problem of campus sexual assault,” NSVRC Director Karen Baker said.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month is observed every April. Free resources for parents, students, health care professionals, and members of the campus community are available at nsvrc.org/saam. For resources in Spanish, visit nsvrc.org/es/saam.

Shop Vac Vs Yellow Jackets

A fellow has figured out a way to use a Shop Vac to remove yellow jackets from the cracks in his porch ceiling and has put a demonstration of it on YouTube. Shop Vac Vs Yellow JacketsHe says it takes about four hours. He starts the machine from a good ways off by putting the plug in the socket and he doesn’t stick around while it does its job.

Shop Vac Vs Yellow Jackets

He says the trick is to put a bit of soapy water in the bucket.

His wife thinks it’s stupid.

But, then, that was before he got 114,000 views.

Our vote is to go the chemical route. His way does make interesting watching, though.

Taylor Swift Greatest Female Leader

World’s greatest female leader.

Fortune magazine has declared Berks County, Pa. native Taylor Swift the world’s greatest female leader — and fifth overall.

It kind of makes you want to cry on your guitar.

On the upside, Katie Perry is not on the list.

Nor is Hillary Clinton for that matter

Detroit Residents Face Foreclosure

Detroit Residents Face Foreclosure
Thank you liberals, for all you have done.

Today, March 31, is the deadline for property taxes to be paid on 62,000 Detroit homes else they will be owned by the county, in this case the County of Wayne, Michigan.

Granted only 18,000 of the delinquent  homes are occupied but assuming a three-person household that’s about 8 percent of the city’s population which is now down to 688,701. In 1950, it was touching 2 million and Detroit was considered one of the world’s great cities.

What happened? Democrats. Motown was run by Republicans in its glory day up until 1962.

Property taxes, of course, are a local tax used to fund services such as police, schools, and spa massages for the mayor.

For what it’s worth, Detroit public service retirees expecting a stable financial future have already taken a big hit. It’s something Pennsylvania public workers ought to recognize in working to resolved this state’s existing crisis. In any battle between ink on paper and reality, reality wins.

Religious Specifics Unnecessary For PSSA Opt Out

Joanne Yurchak has sent us the following for those parents wishing to opt-out of the PSSA and/or Keystone exams:

It is well known that the only reason available for parents to opt their children out of the PSSA’s and/or the Keystone exams is if they find that the test(s) are in conflict with their religious beliefs. Religious Specifics Unnecessary For PSSA Opt Out In order to establish this, the parent has to follow a specified procedure that involves (1) contacting the school administrator; (2) viewing the test; (3) signing a confidentiality agreement; and finally, (4)notifying the district Superintendent that you are opting out your child because of religious beliefs.  The opt-out procedure is detailed on the web site: http://optoutpa.blogspot.com/2014/08/how-to-opt-out-of-pssa-and-keystone.html.

The parent is NOT required to note any specific religion or specific objections.  In fact, a reputable attorney associated with legislators in Harrisburg has said that it is ILLEGAL for districts to demand to know specific religious objections and for them to “validate” other people’s religions.

Unfortunately, there are many school districts who are misinforming parents as to proper procedures for opting out.  Many are telling them that they have to cite specific religious reasons for opting out, while others are telling the parents that they must explain why specific problems on the tests conflict with their religious beliefs.  The latter instruction could actually put parents in legal jeopardy since a part of the test-viewing procedure requires that parents sign a confidentiality agreement promising that they will not divulge the contents of the test to anyone!
