Environmentalism Causes Wildfires — President Trump in August proposed harvesting dead trees from California’s forest. It was a win-win to thinking people. There would be less wood to burn in uncontrolled blazes and more wood to be used for construction and consumer products.
With the continuing disaster in the Golden State — at least 70 dead and 1,000 missing as of today (Nov. 17) — because of the wildfires, hopefully there will be less unthinking people.
We don’t have to stop with lumber, by the way. The dried grass and brush is fuel. Why not use it for power. Europe does. Guess if environmentalism becomes your religion you lose the ability to think outside the box.
It seems, though, that controlled burning in filtered plants is going to cause a lot less greenhouse gas than what is going on now.
Wyatt Earp’s last armed confrontation was in defending a group of potash miners outside Los Angeles from a corporation trying to run them off in 1910. He fired a round from his Winchester at the foot of federal receiver and said ” Back off or I’ll blow you apart or my name is not Wyatt Earp.”

Answer to yesterday’s William Lawrence Sr Cryptowit quote puzzle: I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.
There is a reason that root beer is called root beer. Charles Elmer Hires was the first to successful market a commercial brand. He debuted the drink at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876. He was a teetotaler and wanted to call it root tea. He figured, however, that Pennsylvania coal miners would more likely buy the product if he called it root beer
Paul Peters Ultra Marathons For Giving Tuesday — Giving Tuesday is a global day of philanthropy that falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27).
Manor College will mark the occasion by having attorney and ultra-marathoner Paul S. Peters run for 12 straight hours on treadmills.
“I decided to offer to help Manor College on Giving Tuesday due to my different connections to Manor, and love for Manor’s mission, values, and overall impact on students and Montgomery County,” says Peters. “I have the honor of serving Manor’s Board of Trustees on the Advancement Committee, which has allowed me to clearly learn the mission and values of Manor. Manor also afforded me my first opportunity to teach, for which I am forever grateful.”
Peters will start at 7 a.m. He anticipates that he will run about at least two marathons over the course of the 12 hours, switching back and forth between two treadmills. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members will also participate.
“Through this somewhat quirky effort, we are going to have a fun time bringing together our entire campus community—students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends—to celebrate what makes Manor College a great place to be while supporting one another and bringing awareness to the need for student scholarship,” notes Director of Advancement, Kimberly Hamm.
Manor College, 700 Fox Chase Road, Jenkintown, has seen amazing evolution in the last three years. Despite declining trends in higher education, Manor has posted enrollment increase, financial stability, and greater philanthropic support.
There were just enough Republican State committeepeople, however, who live in the land of unicorns to back him. He beat the respected and honorable Lawrence Tabas to win state chairman by two votes in 2017.
Yes, there really was a majority of Republican Party animals who though Val was not going to put the interests of Stradley Ronon ahead of theirs much less that of the average citizen.
Regarding his county post, we suggested on Nov. 12 that Donna Ellingsen, who chairs Area 19 and has been the subject of DiGiorgio’s wrath for the last three years due to principle opposition to his party-poisonous policies, replace him. The suggestion seems to be taking root considering some of our feedback. Donna’s not the only one being bandied as a replacement. John Emmons, who chairs Area 28, has been suggested and there are others.
May the replacement come quickly for the sake of the Chesco Republicans.
Hopefully, some are pushing him to step down from his state job as well.
