Gov. Tom Corbett is dogged by consistently woeful poll numbers.

Larry Sabato, the University of Virginia scholar and political handicapper, rates him the most vulnerable incumbent governor in the nation. The authoritative Rothenberg Political Report last week moved its rating of his seat's 2014 prospects as "tilts Democratic," while the Washington Post opined that the Pennsylvania governor's mansion was No. 1 in the chances of switching parties next year.

His often rocky relations with Republican leaders in the Legislature were demonstrated anew last month, as the lawmakers failed to pass his three most ardently sought initiatives -- liquor privatization, pension reform and a transportation bill. All those woes have attracted a long line of Democratic challengers who are expected to battle each other in a crowded primary in May.

Corbett's sycophantic relationship with the shale "drillers" is a disgrace and is something that future generations will pay for forever - unless, of course, all living beings can somehow do without drinking water. His conservatism seems to be limited to cutting public services. Disgusting...

Out in Westmoreland County the Beaver Run Reservoir is now surrounded by Marcellus Shale Drilling operations. One is on a hilltop overlooking the reservoir less than a 1/2 mile away.
But hey, since they're exempt from the Clean Water Act, it MUST be safe, right? Right?
Oh and uh, the entrances to these sites are guarded by armed guards...

Will Obama find Karma for accepting the overthrow of a democratic government in Egypt and have a coup on his hands? Will Trayvon Martin's ghost drop the soap in purgatory? Stay tuned to this forum for more information.

Rand Paul spoke out against his fellow members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations this week after they voted 15-3 in favor of arming elements of Syrian opposition. According to Foreign Policy, the bipartisan bill “would authorize the shipment of arms and military training to rebels ‘that have gone through a thorough vetting process.’”
Gee, what could go wrong?

Coal-fired power plants have a dramatic effect on human health and the environment as well as total health care costs (courtesy of EERE)
Everyone’s heard of the carbon footprint of different energy sources, the largest footprint belonging to coal because every kWhr of energy produced emits about 900 grams of CO2. Wind and nuclear have the smallest carbon footprint with only 15 g emitted per kWhr, and that mainly from concrete production, construction, and mining of steel and uranium. Biomass is supposedly carbon neutral as it sucks CO2 out of the atmosphere before it liberates it again later, although production losses are significant depending upon the biomass. Carbon emissions and physical footprints are known as externalities and are those vague someone-has-to-pay-eventually kind of thing it’s hard to put a value on. Proposed carbon footprint taxes are in the range of $15 to $40/ton of CO2 emitted, but assigning a physical footprint cost depends on the region, ecosystem sensitivities and importance. A hundred-acre wetlands to be flooded by a new dam is worth more to the planet than a barren hundred-acre strip under a solar array in the Mojave (P. Bickel and R. Friedrich, 2005).
Coal-fired power plants have a dramatic effect on human health and the environment as well as total health care costs (courtesy of EERE)
But an energy’s deathprint, as it is called, is rarely discussed. The deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced and, like the carbon footprint, coal is the worst and wind and nuclear are the best
For coal, oil and biomass, it is carbon particulates resulting from burning that cause upper respiratory distress, kind of a second-hand black lung. Our lungs just don’t like burnt carbonaceous particulates, whether from coal or wood or manure or pellets or cigarettes. The actual numbers of deaths in China from coal use exceeded 300,000 last year since they have ramped up coal so fast in the last decade and they usually do not install exhaust scrubbers. The impact on their health care system has been significant in not just deaths, but in non-lethal health effects and lost days of work.

EPA regs shutter two more coal plants
07/09/2013
High costs associated with stricter federal environmental regulations and increased competition from low-priced natural gas have shut down two coal-fired power plants in Pennsylvania....
These two Pennsylvania plants add to the already 15,000 megawatts of coal-fired power that have been taken offline since President Barack Obama came into office in 2009. Most of that reduction in energy availability has come through tougher environmental regulations and cheap natural gas.
The Obama administration recently came under fire from industry and Republicans for targeting the coal industry with a slew of new regulations aimed at curbing U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, which environmentalists say contribute to global warming.
“[Obama] is personally responsible for the loss of thousands of jobs. He obviously does not have much interest in states like Kentucky, Tennessee and Wyoming, where the coal industry is so vitally important and we are losing jobs dramatically,” said Kentucky Republican Rep. Ed Whitfield.

Shuster: Two more casualties in the 'War on Coal'
July 10, 2013
U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Hollidaysburg, said the impact of two Pennsylvania coal-fired power plant closures reaches beyond the coal industry — it impacts anyone who pays electric bills.
FirstEnergy, the Akron, Ohio-based parent company of West Penn Power, announced Tuesday that it plans to close Hatfield's Ferry Power Station in Masontown and Mitchell Power Station in Courtney by Oct. 9.
The closures are due to tightening Environmental Protection air quality standards.

Adapt or die. Coal is a relic of the past.

Any suffering as a result of its slow decline due to market forces comes directly from the policy decisions of Republicans who deny science and perpetuate obsolete, destructive technologies.

Want to blame someone for suffering in coal country? Take a look in the mirror, son.

Why is the U.S. arming Egyptian terrorists?
June 29, 2013
The Obama administration should stop sending taxpayer dollars to nations that embrace Islamic terrorism — nations that behave like adversaries, not allies.
Case in point: Egypt and the radical Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama administration recently agreed to spend an additional $250 million in taxpayer money to send weapons to this increasingly unstable nation.
That's in addition to the more than $1 billion annual taxpayer giveaway to Egypt. The United States is putting highly sophisticated tanks and warplanes in the hands of terrorists — terrorists who are hostile to America and to our longtime ally, Israel.
http://triblive.com/opinion/featuredcommentar...
Sooo predictable and true to form. The wingnuts - being the true reactionaries they are - their blind hatred of Obama causes them to attack him for anything he does, even when he implements policies THEY demanded of him.

Here's the only principle the right has left - blindly attack anything the President says or does. Obama implements the policy Republicans have been demanding and suddenly it's the most horrible thing the wingnuts have ever heard of.

Honestly - could you be MORE of a mindless wingnut drone? LMAO!

Will Obamacare take bite out of dental coverage?
Dental health may suffer after law’s rollout, experts say
July 13, 2013
The Affordable Care Act has no teeth. That is not to say enforcement won’t be strict—by all accounts, it will.
No, the law literally has no teeth. Dental coverage was all but ignored in the sweeping health-care overhaul.
So while more Americans will likely gain access to medical care when the law goes into effect next year, the number that can afford a visit to the dentist for a filling, root canal or checkup may actually decrease, industry officials say.
The health reform law requires consumers to buy a health plan that covers everything from seeing a psychologist to the full cost of breast pumps—but there are no such mandates for dental coverage, or requirements that insurers pay for the care of most Americans’ pearly whites.
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/will-obamaca...
So let me get this straight. Now you're bitching because the ACA doesn't cover MORE services?

LMAO! I love it when the wingnuts PROVE they have absolutely no integrity. They stand for NOTHING. Nothing except for their blind, visceral hatred of the President.

Why Underemployment May Be Worse Than It Looks
Monday, 8 Jul 2013
The level of underemployed workers looks bad on its face but even worse when it's not the government doing the counting.
When the Labor Department released its monthly nonfarm jobs report Friday, it was all sunshine and roses except for one glaring weakness: A big jump in the underemployment rate that includes those who have quit working as well as those who have had to take part-time jobs even though they'd rather work full-time.
That rate, which economists call the U-6, jumped from 13.8 percent in May to 14.3 percent in June—a 3.6 percent increase and indicative that the 195,000 new jobs created in the month weren't exactly of the highest caliber.
http://www.cnbc.com/id/100870095
Really? This old trope?

The U6 is ALWAYS higher than the official unemployment rate, you uninformed nitwit. And under Obama's leadership, it has declined FASTER than the official unemployment rate.

Venerable leftist weekly demands president’s impeachment over mass surveillance
In the pages of The Nation, the oldest continuously published weekly in the country and the self-described “flagship of the left,” a former member of the House of Representatives has called for the impeachment of the president over revelations of massive government surveillance of ordinary citizens.
Democrat Elizabeth Holtzman of New York, who sat on the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate era, powerfully yet dispassionately lays out the case for the immediate impeachment of the president.
“Nothing less is necessary to protect our constitutional system and preserve our democracy,” she declares.
The last straw for the retired Congresswoman was the revelation that the president “directed the wiretapping of hundreds, possibly thousands, of Americans”(a number that is likely conservative).
“As a matter of constitutional law, these and other misdeeds constitute grounds for the impeachment,” writes Holtzman in her bombshell treatise.“A President, any President, who maintains that he is above the law — and repeatedly violates the law — thereby commits high crimes and misdemeanors, the constitutional standard for impeachment and removal from office.”
http://dailycaller.com/2013/06/28/dc-world-ex...
Well, if Elizabeth Holtzman says so, then I suppose it's all over but the resignation of the President.

ROFLMAO!
