The governor is not a lawmaker, so "fellow" to none of them. And how about making a comment, not giving just citing a website and regurgitated canned facts from others? It's an opinion board, meant to allow people to share their personal opinion of putzes like Corbutt.

Not in my lifetime will Corbett's state Republican Party be reformers.

Argall is proposing a drawdown of the Legislature by 50 House seats and five senators. He would accomplish this over a geological time frame, with the finished product in the Senate complete in 2033 and the House in 2053.

What a joke this Republican Party has become. You Pa. lawmakers can really look in a mirror and still blame public school teachers for this states financial problems.

The Republicans just kicked the can off the earth.

The national Republican Party is far, far worse. If Palin & Bachman (two bimbos), Gingrich (a professor), Romney (a millionaire), McCain (as ex-Navy, he's the skipper) and Ron Paul (our lil' buddy, of course) all run, the Republicansd will revive Gilligans Island for 2012 Presidential campaign!(a nod to Bill Maher)

You didn't finish. Liberalism is a mental disorder that keeps allowing Republicans to fund their free private market profits using socialist taxpayer money.

You right, and it needs to stop.

Look at this partisan crap by Steve Snyder. The LDNEWS really sucks when it comes to reporting the actual facts.
The Daily News specificially editorialized on the findings of the poll referenced above, couching it in terms of its potential effect in city schools, for which information was available. The tone of the editorial was not such that one should reasonably use the term "partisan crap." A sitting governor coming to town is news, regardless of political party. And it is reasonable to expect a sitting politician to have an agenda that he wants to forward, and for corbett, it's education cuts. The bias exists in the politician, not the reporting. The poll, again, was covered elsewhere and not in terms glowing for the governor.

Governor Corbett and the entire Republican Party has decided to take away "We the People's" rights under the 6th Amendment to a fast and speedy trial.

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed.

First, you know what they say: "The truth hurts!"; and
second, you're obviously a low-brow, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, bible-thumping, gun-toting, fear-mongering, "big-lie" conservative right wing-nut; a greedy and soul-less little cretin who lives by the adage of "I've got mine, and to hell with everyone else!"... you don't have ordinary human "feelings," and certainly not compassion! And Corbutt's budget proves he's much the same.
So you've got your hand out again. "Gimme, gimme, gimme" is your credo. How about you earn it instead of expecting the government to just keep giving.

Gov Corbett is on the right track for sure. About time someone has the balls to say no no no more to the teachers. Corbett cuts not just one place but every place. Good job I say. Corbett is helping the rich to remember were they came from and who made them rich. LOVE IT.
Yep. Hate your neighbor. Classic example of the real republican plan at work. Meanwhile, the rich get richer and the middle class disappears.
