Answer to yesterday’s puzzle: The benefits of education and of useful knowledge, generally diffused through a community, are essential to the preservation of a free government

Gun Control And Mayors

Marcus Hook Mayor James “Jay” Schiliro who is facing charges for allegedly firing a gun inside his home in an attempt to
intimidate a 20-year-old  man to have sex with him is a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the
organization run by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg to advance
stricter gun regulations around the United States, reports

Wonder how he feels about sodomy laws.

Schiliro  is charged with official oppression, recklessly endangering another person, unlawful
restraint, false imprisonment and providing alcohol to a minor, all
misdemeanor offenses.

He is a Republican, by the way. It doesn’t matter. A disproportionate number of politicians are sociopaths. Don’t trust anybody who really wants to be the boss.

Pennsylvania Charities Seek Relief From State

Pennsylvania Charities Seek Relief From State — Charities and churches who depend on raffles and such were slammed in the back last year by those in Harrisburg who passed  Act 2 that placed regulatory burdens and strict reporting rules on running these events.

VFW Post 3460 of Media is among the many organizations asking that legislators be contacted and asked to support SB 144, SB 390 and HB 290.

And to think “small government” Republicans run things there.

Pennsylvania Republican Angers Constituents

Pennsylvania Republican Angers Constituents — Sen. Ted Erickson (R-26), three days ago before the Springfield Republicans, expressed a distinct coolness to privatizing Pennsylvania’s state-run liquor monopoly which is something passed overwhelmingly by the State House and is overwhelmingly supported by his constituents — at least those who are not part of a special interest group.

Erickson has now made it official that he supports expanding Medicaid to low-income workers despite the burdens it will place on the vast majority of his constituents — hey, you hear our national debt is now $16.8 trillion —  not to mention the truly poor who will now have to compete with new clients for  attention from a shrinking supply of doctors willing to accept Medicaid patients.

Erickson is not a leader in that he can’t fight to make a change to something that doesn’t work or fight to stop a change to make something that sorta works fail. He is not a follower in that he refuses to listen to those who elect him. He is the perfect example as to why Republicans lose — and he should get out of the way.
