HARRISBURG - A Republican plan to phase out Pennsylvania's 600 state-operated liquor stores and raise millions in revenue by selling licenses to private businesses passed the state House easily on Thursday and was sent to the state Senate.

The 105-90 vote after about seven hours of debate was a victory for members of the majority Republican caucus and their ally, Gov. Tom Corbett, also a Republican.

Democrats warned the privatization bill would put thousands of state store employees out of work, cost more and generate less revenue than supporters predict, and make alcohol more widely available, bringing with it a range of social problems.

"This is not a business-friendly bill," said Rep. Margo Davidson, D-Delaware. "This measure has the potential to destroy small businesses and ravage communities."

Supporters said the state should not be selling alcohol and said private businesses would improve customer service, create jobs and put an end to a Depression-era system of state control that was nearly unique across the country. They said sales would increase partly by recapturing customers from Pennsylvania who currently purchase wine and liquor from other states, particularly New Jersey.

Democrats want gun control because they have contempt for individual rights and want an all-powerful government.
The extent to which their intentions are sinister is difficult to know.
Really the Democrats like Dianne Feinstein have contempt for law abiding citizens individual rights but Dianne Feinstein really wants to empower the Criminals in Society who will benefit from her gun control laws since the criminals have no intentions of obeying the law to begin with which to me Democrats like Dianne Feinstein are nothing more than an accessory of the Criminals of Society by legislating gun law that really benefits the Criminals of Society.

It's actually an idiom in the English language meaning in an argument or a case, to have no support thinking you're in the right.
Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore and Ted Kennedy along with the majority of democrats in both the House and Senate supported Bush. They knew Saddam had WMDs even before 9/11 and were privy to the same intelligence.
40 countries stood behind Bush.
So when it comes to blaming just Bush, you have no leg to stand on.
You're wrong on a few points. A majority of Democrats in the House did not vote to authorize the war; 81 voted for and 126 against joined by 6 Republicans most notably Ron Paul. While a majority of 26 Senate Democrats voted for it 21 voted against.
Nobody "knew" Sadaam had WMD Carol it was a suspicion based on faulty intelligence and fabrication by individuals like Ahmed Chalabi who was on the Iranian payroll. Here's what British officials had to say about the way the Bush administration was using that information in the now famous Downing Street Memo;
C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record. There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action.
downingstreetmemo.com/memos.html
What 40 countries backed the administration's decision to go to war Carol? The fact is that support for war was very scant with most countries in favor of letting the UN inspectors do their job.

You'll disagree, but the basis of giving minority groups parades & such things is more of a token gesture. In a sense saying everyday is white American day in America. By giving an ethnic background a holiday or parade is an acknowledgment of said group, but why yearly acknowledge white peoples place in America when it's evidently clear on a daily basis? America is a white first country! 2ndly you have different dark skinned celebrations, parades, festivals, but black Americans remain the most unacknowledged racial group in America. There are no black American (African American) day celebrations anywhere in this country. Maybe African, Jamaican, Haitian, but no African American (Black American) day parades or festivals. Please do explain that, & do remember all black Americans aren't from Africa neither there ancestors!

Yes libtards love to divide people into groups(herds). It makes it far easier to control them. There is nothing wrong with celebrating ones heritage but when used to pit one group against another it is wrong.

Black Americans have remained the most unacknowledged racial group in America for over 100+ year plus years. The inner city ghettos, projects, and urban preserves of modern America are the breeding ground 'Blue Magnets' of hate filled liberalism. One Hundred plus years of YOUR culture of violence NJ raider, racism, bigotry, ignorance, poverty, intolerance, abortion, America's killing fields of blacks.

The democratic party has always helped and been on the side of the black man for years keeping blacks, equal, aborted controlling their numbers, in their place, under-educated and poor, living off their masters wealth...

The Harsh Zero Sum of Racial Politics

I can imagine a politics where race is either not a driving factor in our politics or one in which it has a greatly reduced role. In fact I’m cautiously optimistic that what’s happened over the last handful of election cycles makes that second option, at least to a degree, a real possibility. Not because of some magical Obama effect but because of something much more concrete: demographic trends have hit a tipping point where they appear to be a net loser for the GOP.

This conversation always requires getting straight on definitions. Does this mean the GOP is ‘racist’? No. At least not in its entirety. But it benefited mightily from it. What it means is that our politics is significantly framed around the politics of race and, on balance, it’s been a winning issue for the GOP for the 40 or 50 odd years since white Southerners moved into the Republican party and created a powerful electoral anchor for the party. They raised their sails to the winds of racial animosity and it worked in spades. For decades, you got more white votes pushing this brand of politics than you lost in minority votes. It was a good political bargain. But as the racial composition of the electorate changed, we reached a tipping, one that became visible in sharp relief in 2012.

Now, we all know this. What’s apparently much less clear are the thermodynamics of racial politics. It might not quite be equal and opposite, like in the physical world. But change on one front almost inevitably leads to at least substantial and parallel change elsewhere.

Imagine a significantly deracialized American politics. Perhaps the Republican party starts getting African-American support into the double digits. Perhaps the partisan split among Hispanic voters moves more toward equal. In other words, a significant de-racialization of our politics. So great, Republicans now get all these new voters. But you don’t think some lower income white voters in Arkansas or Missouri don’t stop and say,“Hey, why am I Republican again?”

It would be a great thing for America to have an at least partially deracialized politics. But I don’t think any of us can fully visualize the pervasive restructuring of our politics that would entail — far beyond what we normally think of as issues of race. Recent events make me think we are going to at least move in that direction. At least somewhat. Eventually.

But racial divisions — which is different from ‘racism’ per se — are just more deeply rooted in our politics than most people care to admit. Taking that out of the equation, even to a degree, would upend more apple carts than we realize, would take longer than we realize. The GOP is deeply in hock to the white voters whose votes it’s focused on maximizing in recent elections. And that de-leveraging won’t come rapidly or easily.

Can you tell us why the ghettos, projects and big government preserves are the 'Blue Magnets' of liberalism, the hate for blacks?

. I was simply responding to an idiot who called me a racist because of the screen name I use. And then to the claim the idiot made that sant patricks day is a white pride celebration.
I would just like to know why it is considerd racist for me to be proud of my race and its just fine for any other race to be proud of theirs. What would it be called if we had a white history month celebration? What would we be called if we tried to open a whites only school ? Why is it you have to be called African Americans and not just Americans? What would be said if whites started useing the title of Aryan Americans?
I think you know the answer, so tell me who the racist are.

if you're to stupid to be able to answer your own questions why should i?

and once again...i'm not black. but your inference would indicate you think all white folks should hate blacks, so let me demonstrate how wrong you are.

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, a self-identified Republican who was Gen. Colin Powell's chief of staff during his time as secretary of state, did not take too kindly to a recent accusation -- from Mitt Romney's controversial campaign co-chair John Sununu -- that Powell only endorsed Barack Obama for president because they're both black. Sununu would later backtrack, but the damage was done.

Wilkerson, who is white, didn't mince words on MSNBC'sThe Ed Show Friday night. "To say that Colin Powell would endorse President Obama because of his skin color is like saying Mother Teresa worked for profit," he said. And although he gave Sununu a bit of a pass, blaming his statement on an "unfortunate" choice of words, Wilkerson had much harsher words for the GOP as a whole.

"Let me just be candid," he said. "My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander in chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that's despicable."

Uh, tell 'em how you really feel, Colonel. Now that Wilkerson has said that which shall not be said, how long before his GOP card is snatched away?

Margaret Sanger was a patriotic demokkkratic American, a hero by Hillary Clinton, and Sanger's beloved national socialist democratic organization, Plan Parent HOOD, has single-handedly provided eugenic healthcare, preventing the black population and ghetto ignorance from expanding in the USA today....

The democratic party has free birth control for women, to control and snuff the numbers of black births.. It's all in the plan of smoke and mirrors, diversion hating on women...

The demokratic party has always helped and been on the side of the black man for years keeping blacks equal, ignorant, aborted controlling their numbers, in their place, under-educated and poor, living off their masters wealth...
