Lawrence County 9/11 Rally Went Smoothly — Lynette Mountain tells us that the long-planned — and strangely long-fought — rally in New Castle, Pa. to commemorate victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack went off without a hitch.
Lawrence County had refused to grant a permit unless the rally organizers agreed to indemnify it for possible damages done by counter-protestors.
The county never granted a permit but the organizers Bikers for Trump (Boots on the Ground), and Bikers for America sought a federal injunction allowing it to take place.
Lynette says about 70 persons attended and only one pathetic counter-protestor.
An underlying issue is the disputed sale by the state of the former New Castle Youth Development Center to HIRA Educational Service, a questionable Islamic group based in New Jersey.
Some officials were calling the rally “anti-Muslim.”
HMB Pierogi Sale Raises $2 G For Harvey Victims — Father John Ciurpita has announced that Holy Myrrh-Bearers Eastern Catholic Church raised $2,000 for victims of Hurricane Harvey in the recent special pierogi sale.
The church is at 900 Fairview Road, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, PA 19081.
Planned Parenthood is ineffective at decreasing teen sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancies. Actually, there is pretty good evidence that it makes things worse despite what one might hear from the group’s apologists.
Ask yourself why can’t a school district handle sex and health education itself? And while you are asking yourself that, ask how much Planned Parenthood is getting in tax money for its school-based clinics. The organization makes a whole lot of people very nice livings.
