Improved Property Tax Independence Act

A bipartisan group of state lawmakers will unveil the new and improved Property Tax Independence Act on noon, tomorrow, March 12,   in Harrisburg, reports State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129) who is one of the bill’s sponsors.

Watch the news conference live on Tuesday at noon by visiting www.RepJimCox.com.

Cox introduced a similar bill last year that would have replaced the property tax as a means of funding schools with something less endangering to the shelters of  those who have lost income such as the unemployed or those on fixed income such as the disabled and senior citizens.

Concerns About Corbett

From GOP activist Bob Guzzardi of Montgomery County:

The Republican Primary voter is noticing that Governor Corbett is not producing any meaningful legislation they want. The Unions are doing better.

It is expected that liquor privatization will degenerate into liquor modernization.

Pension Reform is, effectively. blocked and taxpayers face a $41 billion dollar expense.

United Commercial and Food Workers Union workers at state store got a 4 year contract with 4% increase.

State System of Higher Education gets huge increase “The contract, which covers 5,500 faculty members, provides for salary increases of 11.5 percent or 19 percent over its four-year life, with junior faculty getting the higher increases. Faculty now receives salaries ranging between $44,795 and $107,870 a year”  which is an hourly rate that would impress a Wall Street CEO

Voter ID is still stalled because of inept execution by Secretary of State and Corbett Crony Carole Aichele. Can anyone be this inept or is it intentional slow rolling of real voter reform? like the Sandusky investigation. Corbett has both ways saying he passed Voter ID and then, to help Philadelphia Unions and Democrats so they won’t roll out full bore against him, slow rolls implementation.

Debt increased $4.6 billion with a good portion going to Liberal Democratic and Union construction projects.

Unions are doing well; the Forgotten Taxpayer, not so much.

Off The Internet — Groom, Texas

(There is always someone stopped here to visit, pray, or meditate.
Trucks, buses, or single vehicles. Groom is a tiny town on I-40, but
gets lots of visitors because of this.)

What an incredible display.This could be one of the last
surviving Christian symbols in the country!

This is about 70 miles from Amarillo outside of town
called Groom, TX.

Read message at the end of pictures! These are the
pictures of the crucifixion of Christ, Sculptured from
metal by a man near Amarillo , TX . The crosses are made
of metal also. The man did this out of the kindness of
his heart. Someone donated the land on which to erect
them.

IN CHEMISTRY, HE TURNED WATER TO WINE.

IN BIOLOGY, HE WAS BORN WITHOUT THE NORMAL
CONCEPTION.

IN PHYSICS, HE DISPROVED THE LAW OF GRAVITY
WHEN HE WALKED ON WATER AND THEN LATER,
ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN.

IN ECONOMICS, HE DISPROVED THE LAW OF DIMINISHING
RETURN BY FEEDING 5000 MEN WITH 2 FISHES &
5 LOAVES OF BREAD.

IN MEDICINE, HE CURED THE SICK AND THE BLIND
WITHOUT ADMINISTERING A SINGLE DOSE OF DRUGS.

IN HISTORY, HE IS THE BEGINNING AND THE END.

IN GOVERNMENT, HE SAID THAT HE SHALL BE CALLED
WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, PRINCE OF PEACE.

IN RELIGION, HE SAID NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER
EXCEPT THROUGH HIM;

SO, WHO IS HE?

HE IS JESUS!

JOIN ME AND LET’S CELEBRATE HIM; HE IS WORTHY.

THE EYES BEHOLDING THIS MESSAGE SHALL NOT
BEHOLD EVIL.

THE HAND THAT WILL SEND THIS MESSAGE TO
EVERYBODY SHALL NOT LABOR IN VAIN.

AND THE MOUTH SAYING AMEN TO THIS PRAYER
SHALL SMILE FOREVER.

REMAIN IN GOD AND SEEK HIS FACE ALWAYS. AMEN.

IN GOD, I’VE FOUND EVERYTHING!

The Greatest Man in History Jesus had no servants,
yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.

Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.

He had no army, yet kings feared Him..

He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime,
yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. I feel honored
to serve such a Leader who loves us! If you believe in God and in Jesus Christ His
Son, you may wish to send it on…. If not, just ignore it.

If you ignore it, just remember that Jesus said. “If you deny
me before man, I will deny you before my Father in Heaven.”

Daylight Savings Time Starts

Daylight saving time starts in eight hours from the time of this post which will be 2 a.m., Sunday, March 10.

So turn re turn their clocks ahead one hour before going to bed.

The idea of daylight saving was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin while serving as an American delegate in Paris. Daylight saving time has been used in the U.S. and many European nations since World War I. It was officially adopted in the U.S. in 1918, and was made consistent through the adoption of the Uniform Time Act of 1966.
