Today Is Bill Of Rights Day

Today Is Bill Of Rights Day

By Bill Denison

Today is Bill of Rights Day, and Resident Biden has just issued the customary annual official Proclamation. 

You can read it here:  

Believe it or not, I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Biden’s closing statement:  “I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

 Some of us plan to do just that at the Bill of Rights Banquet in Lancaster County.  No matter where you are, it’s a good opportunity to refresh your recollection with a reading of the document.

The rest of Biden’s Proclamation is really just a State of the Union preview of how he wishes to corrupt and subvert our Constitution and Bill of Rights, with enough gaslighting garbage to gladden Goebbels.

Tomorrow, Dec. 16, we return to our monthly free discussion of the Pennsylvania Constitution and more.  See highlights below for access info and proposed agenda topics.

With tomorrow’s heavy rain forecast, remember God’s Genesis 9 covenant of no more worldwide flood, marked with His token reminder — the rainbow in the clouds.  Today’s God-haters misuse His rainbow symbol, but our merciful and long suffering God will not be mocked.  God is good, all the time.

To participate in this month’s lesson on the Pennsylvania Constitution use this link or call 646-749-3122 and use access code 145-138-829.

The agenda is:

  • The 231st Birthday of the “Bill of Rights”  
  • Article VI, Section 3, “Oath Of Office” – Pennsylvania Constitution 
  • Helping our Sheriffs reclaim their lawful “CLEO” constitutional office
  • Getting other Patriotic Groups to work with us now and we with them where possible

Lancaster Libertarians Ponder Replacing Plurality Voting

Lancaster Libertarians Ponder Replacing Plurality Voting

By Bob Small

The most used voting system in the United States is plurality, which means the top vote-getter wins regardless of whether he gets the majority of total votes.

Is it the best? 

 The Libertarians Party of Lancaster County, among others, feel there is a better way and will discuss options at their monthly forum 7 p.m., Dec. 21 at 15 Mount Joy St., Mount Joy, Pa. 17552.

The Lancaster Libertarians are opposed to “instant runoff” ranked choice and are lukewarm about “approval voting.” The ones they are pushing for are Best/Alternate/Worst Voting (BAWV) and Approve/Approve/Disapprove Voting (ASDV) which are discussed here.

“Since the continuing use of Plurality is the single largest reason why no other party can compete with the Ds and Rs in elections, it is very important that we all get on the same page (and on the CORRECT page) regarding its replacement!,” say the Libertarians. 

The Libertarian Party of Lancaster County forums concern topics important to the philosophy of liberty and are normally 7 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month on the second floor of 15 Mount Joy St. accessed through the side door from the parking lot.

Check the calendar at lplcpa.org for late changes. Topics have been “Rational Thinking,” “Rational Self-interest,” “Rights,” “The NAP,” “Libertarian Taxation,” “The PA Constitution” and “Money.” PowerPoint slides for most sessions are posted here:

While I am a Green and not a Libertarian, we do agree on some issues.

Delco Playwrights Showcased In Rutledge Festival

Delco Playwrights Showcased In Rutledge Festival — Julie Zaraffano of Broomall, Sandra Wade of Drexel Hill and Brigette ReDavid of Glen Mills are three area playwrights in the short play festival in Rutledge. Former Daily Times reporter Patti Mengers is one of the festival judges, along with Philadelphia Actor Anthony Wilcox and Director Raymond P. Smith.

“I love creating plays for lots of different characters but I especially love creating roles for women and mature women,” said Playwright Zaraffano who wrote the play Gamma Girls to the Rescue. “And I love showing mature women, who do not have dementia, who are women who have hopes and desires and dreams.”

While ReDavid’s play isn’t about women, the characters in Kearon & Kyle are definitely different, according to ReDavid. “But I’m not going to tell you anything else about them because it would spoil the fun,” ReDavid says of the play which has already run in Maryland and NYC.

The play The Skeptics is by Drexel Hill Playwright Sandra Wade. It features Drexel Hill actor and film producer Oliver Assiran.

Other playwrights include Rajiv Mallick of Pheonixville, Christopher Tait of Philadelphia, John O’Hare of Philadelphia, Tori Bond of Perkasie, Stephen Olsen of Connecticut, David Valdez of Florida, and Rex McGregor of New Zealand.

The show runs 4 to 8 p.m. Nov. 12. A silent auction, food and refreshments are available. Tickets are $20 at https://www.eventbrite.com/d/united-states–pennsylvania/off-page-play-festival/

Off Page Holding Play Festival In Rutledge

Off Page Holding Play Festival In Rutledge — A short-play festival will be held, Nov. 12, at Rutledge Community Center sponsored by Off Page, a creative artist group started during the Pandemic.

“We’ve read hundreds of scripts over the last few years. Our Facebook page Philadelphia Screenwriters had 40 members before everything shut down. Now we are well over 500 strong with the majority of members from Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties,” said Brigette ReDavid, who founded Off Page in the summer of 2020.

Ms. ReDavid is the former managing editor of the NEWS of Delaware County whose work appeared in the Main Line Times, University City Review, and the Philadelphia Inquirer where she was a Lifestyle and entertainment columnist. She lives in Glen Mills and travels between Philadelphia, New York and LA to work as a writer and filmmaker.

The group’s goal is to become a non profit to continue supporting area writers and artists in their work, she said.

Off Page is accepting admissions through Sept. 23 for the festival.

“In May, I was the producer and AD on a short film by John Giordano and Dennis Jeantet and we filmed one of the days at the Rutledge Community Center,” she says. “Upstairs the borough has built the most beautiful stage and I thought this is the perfect place for our first Off Page event.”

Details can be found on the Philadelphia Screenwriters or Off Page FACEBOOK pages, or by emailing OffPage2021@gmail.com.

“We’ve been getting some really good submissions in from Villanova students, Broomall residents and more. There’s a lot of talent here,” she says
