It was 16-17 million, not seven.

And guess which "new" Skook GOP candidate supports it?

The vast majority of that money was grant money earmarked for intermodal facilities only. The money COULD NOT be used for any other purpose. Not for road repairs, not to open a mfg factory or alot of needed things. Intermodal facilities only. This is how Pottsville, Wilkes Barre, Hazleton, etc got their intermodal buildings. If this money was not taken for this purpose by Pottsville, it would have been given to another city. These are the facts whether we like them or not. Why shouldn't Pottsville have gone after the grant like all the other cities did? Whether you like it or not, Pottsville did the right thing, just as other cities did. The piece of pie was there. All they needed to do was ask for it.

And as you type this ... Obama is trying to raise the debt ceiling.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

No problem with my logic. I never said I was for the spending of the money. I'm against most grant money. I was explaining how the process works and how the money would have went to some place else if not Pottsville. I was explaining the process to Just Wondering who evidently doesn't have a clue to how the whole thing worked. I'm against Obama's out of control spending who now is an advocate for cutting the defecit - the defecit that he greatly increased with his out of control spending and failure programs. That said, again, I was explaining the grant money process. Not whether I felt it was right or wrong.

THANK GOD!

Someone with some intelligence posts.

Usually it's the twits from the GS, the KERNAL or someone mentions squirrels, ham & pepsi.

I hope WP Guy sticks around, it's lonely around here sometimes.
