Despite its egalitarian origins, the distribution of taxable wealth in Chester County
became increasingly unequal and steadily rose to levels in keeping with other northern states,
England, and in Wales (Main 1977:560; Soltow 1981, 1984, 1989:264). Undoubtably, the
nascent American hierarchy was nurtured by the replacement of disarticulated parliamentary,
royal, and proprietary interests with a unified national government centered in nearby
Philadelphia. As Ireland (1995:267) has persuasively argued, Pennsylvania’s ratification of the
constitution came only after Anti-Federalists’ concerns with the potential growth of “privilege,
hierarchical structures, and authoritarian institutions” was superceded by the immediate
problem of tax debt and falling market prices. Federalists promised that these obstacles would
be overcome by unification which would foster “security, prosperity, international respect, and
commercial opportunity.” The majority of Chester County voters chose economic growth
over social equality, and thereby aligned themselves with the Federalist core in Philadelphia
(Ireland 1995:182-216).
Contemporary observers linked productivity in Pennsylvania with prevailing ethnic
stereotypes. Benjamin Rush, a noted Philadelphia physician, held that one could identify the
plantations of Pennsylvania Germans from their English neighbors by the fertility and neatness
of their holdings. Benjamin Franklin admired Pennsylvania German’s “habitual industry and
frugality” and their ability to “under live others.” Pennsylvania’s Governor George Thomas
credited the large German population with the colony’s high level of productivity. Whereas
Germans were regaled for their industry, Scotch-Irish yeomen were seen as natural-born
frontiersmen who were indifferent agriculturalists (Lemon 1966).

WASHINGTON -- At a recent campaign stop in Pennsylvania, Mitt Romney expressed amazement at a gas station's touch-screen sandwich-making process.

"I went to a place called Wawa's today, you ever been there?... You press a little touchtone keypad, you touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there's your sandwich. It’s amazing,” Romney said.

A conservative, California-based filmmaker said this week that his company is distributing more than a million free copies of a conspiracy-laden DVD that claims much of what the public knows about President Barack Obama's early life is false.
The movie — called "Dreams From My Real Father" — began appearing in Central Florida mailboxes sometime last week.
Obama biographer David Maraniss called the movie "preposterous." Maraniss, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, said it is "depressing to have so much fictional, unreported, conspiratorial, unhistorical stuff floating around."
"This DVD is the worst of the bunch," he wrote in an email, "which is saying something."
The movie has also been dissected by an Atlanta attorney named Loren Collins. Collins has blogged extensively about the film, concluding, "It's just complete bunk."

You really believe that, eh? I am using a canadian accent today.

Is that why Bill Clinton complimented Romney's efforts at Bain by using the term sterling to describe it?

To "politicize" means "to give a political character to."

It is a reductive term, capturing the peculiarly shrunken horizons of politics: "Gee, they nuked Israel. D'you think that will hurt us in Florida?"

So media outlets fret that Benghazi could be "bad" for Obama – by which they mean he might be hitting the six-figure lecture circuit four years ahead of schedule.

But for Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, it's real bad. They're dead, over, gonesville.

Given that Obama and Secretary Clinton refer to Stevens pneumatically as "Chris," as if they've known him since third grade, why would they dishonor the sacrifice of their close personal friend by peddling an utterly false narrative as to why he died? You want "politicization"?

Secretary Clinton linked the YouTube video to the murder of her colleagues even as the four caskets lay alongside her at Andrews Air Force Base – even though she had known for days that it had nothing to do with it.

It's weird enough that politicians now give campaign speeches to returning coffins. But to conscript your "friend's" corpse as a straight man for some third-rate electoral opportunism is surely as shriveled and worthless as "politicization" gets.

In the vice-presidential debate, asked why the White House spent weeks falsely blaming it on the video, Joe Biden took time off between big toothy smirks to reply: "Because that was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community." That, too, is false. He also denied that the government of which he is nominally second-in-command had ever received a request for additional security.

At the risk of "politicizing" things, this statement would appear also to be untrue.

Instead, the State Department OUTSOURCED security for the Benghazi consulate to Blue Mountain, a Welsh firm that hires ex-British and Commonwealth Special Forces, among the toughest hombres on the planet.

The company's very name comes from the poem "The Golden Journey To Samarkand," whose words famously adorn the regimental headquarters of Britain's Special Air Service in Hereford.

Unfortunately, the one-year contract for consulate security was only $387,413 – or less than the cost of deploying a single U.S. soldier overseas.

On that budget, you can't really afford to fly in a lot of crack SAS killing machines, and have to make do with the neighborhood talent pool.

So who's available? Blue Mountain hired five members of the Benghazi branch of the February 17th Martyrs' Brigade and equipped them with HANDCUFFS & BATONS.

A baton is very useful when someone is firing an RPG at you, at least if you play a little baseball. There were supposed to be four men heavily armed with handcuffs on duty that night,

but, the date of Sept. 11 having no particular significance in the Muslim world, only two guards were actually on shift.

Election is drawing close. Can any of you Repubs give an answer today?
Name just ONE idea or policy difference between Romney and Bush.
Convince America WHY we need to go back and try it all again.
Convince America that when Reagan started this entire plan of Trickle Down from the rich it made things better.
No proof in US history that lower tax rates have EVER created one job. But there is proof that the RICH are destroying America.
The rich bankers knowing made bad loans.
The rich on Wall St. knowing sold these bundled bad loans to the world.
The rich CEOs of over 27,000 American factories closed them and moved them to China to pay slaves .30 cents an hour.
The RICHEST do nothing but swap money on Wall St.. Make Millions and Billions doing it and then pay taxes like Mitt of 13%.
.
And somehow you Repubs vote for all these things as good for America.
