Isnt it great how predictably foolish people are to believe this story? A one sided reporting sucked up by the mindless masses like a sweet drink on a hot tropical island! Such suckers!

Gingrich appears to be behaving identical to Harry Reid who rushes out of negotiations to tell to the mouthpiece media stories which at least stretch fact if not telling downright lies. When one sees the true progressive tactic like this then one ought to have doubt that Gingrich is anything but manipulating you just like a LEFTIST democrat does.

Take note that there is no quote from Chairperson Braden. Braden is not in the chairperson role for herself but Gingrich is. Braden would never agree to have the voice of the committee subjugated by the State Committee or by Gingrich. Braden's desire is to restore the voice to the precinct voters. No way would she disregard the voice of the members of committee that we put there to represent us!

Are people of this county so mal-adjusted away from critical thinking that this Gingrich Koolaid is sucked up so unguardedly? Don't participate as mindless non-thinking fools that Gingrich wants you to be!
Folmer is wasting money

Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon County, is a relatively junior member of the state Senate, so it might seem surprising that he employs the second-highest paid midstate staffer. Fred Sembach, Folmer’s chief of staff and the executive director of the Senate Communications and Technology Committee, pulls in $114,231. Sembach earns significantly more than Folmer, who draws a salary of $78,314.

Folmer touted himself as a government reformer when he was elected in 2006, upsetting then-Senate Majority Leader David Brightbill in the Republican primary. He won his seat amid the tide of voter outrage over the Legislature’s approval of hefty raises for lawmakers and other state officials.

Flunky aren't you a commie, socialist, progressive, liberal? I am for people who are not like you, people not like nearly all of the Dems and a small part of the Repubs that went off the reservation. There is a side of a side that is right and they continue to wake up!
If caring for my fellow Americans despite their station in life and being saddened by the loss of our leadership to corporate interests makes me a 'commie', then so be it.

However, I suspect that you don't even know the meaning of the FoxNews buzzwords you use, nor do you understand the reality that you live in and who perpetrates the problems that we have. I can help you out a little and tell you that the economy and the problems it has are not the fault of people who DON'T have money, despite the horseshit that the people who ARE responsible have fooled you into believing.

MSNBC buzzline, conservatives dont care about the poor etc... BS!

There are problems with EVERY economic system. The capitalist free market system has the least problems and benefits the most people possible. It is the high tide that raises all boats. Take some comparative econ classes! And yes there are problems with greed and excessive pay but these CEOs are responsible for expanding business, creating jobs and raising opportunity for the masses. Saying "if it makes you a commie so be it" just tells me how little your knowledge is on the topic. And from a veteran, if you were truthful, is shameful!

I thought the TPers were interested in removing the relics from leadership and replacing them with people of principles, determination and energy? If so, why the support for a relic like Pat Braden whose self interests are as steep as her heart rate?

I'd love for the Bradens to disclose how much they make with their "charity" projects like COOL and the Hamilton group or whatever name du jour they have for fleecing the sheeple.

Follow the money people, follow the money.

No way she would agree? Well, she did. That is what a compromise is, two parties agreeing to do something. That she had nothing to say to the press is not surprising given this is her latest surrender to the powers that be. How do you think you got endorsements under her watch?

Least problems? Like oil spills and other disasters that poison the ecosystem and the food chain? I don't consider in numbers of incidents, I consider their impact on the life on this rock. Unchecked, your capitalist free market thinking would chew this planet up like vultures on a dead horse.

Benefits the most people? Sure, if you call eking out a meager existence, while one guy gets every dime your hard work helps to generate, a benefit.

That rising tide only raises boats if you can afford a boat because your job pays you enough to buy a boat.

The reality is that MOST of the people in this country are treading water while that tide washes them out to sea to be eaten alive by sharks...sharks who own boats.

I'm all for a free market, as long as one of the things that's not allowed is the ability to treat people like the boxes they pack their products in or to manipulate governments to their own ends.

this is a total betrayal from Braden. And to think of all time and effort grassroots made to support her doing the same old thing. What a waste!

Can anybody explain this to me? Russo has a facebook page and he lists his employer as the Lebanon Republican Committee.

Go to Facebook and search for "Scott Russo Photos" and see for yourself.

If this is true Braden has some explaining to do!

That's it, keeping giving a Russo a pass. He broke the law. He trespassed at a private function in a public school. He can insist he didn't break the law all he wants, he trespassed. His kids go to that school and he knows the rules. If that's only offensive when the other side is doing that sort of thing, you have a problem.

He's self-centered and only cares about himself and doesn't care who he has to hurt to draw attention to himself. He's also a liar. He's been lying since the day he broke the law and he's still lying. He IS NOT employed by the Republican Committee but hey, he's on your side so whatever he does or says is okay with you. If he's willing to lie about something like that, why should anybody believe anything he has to say?

It's OK.

Morbius suffers from FoxNews Tourettes. It's involuntary. Anytime someone posts something that is in direct opposition to his/her tiny world view, it triggers a fit of Glenn Beck buzzwords that he/she doesn't even know the real meaning of.

I listen to Beck and Beck would denounce what Russo has done. I am a conservative and a member of the "Tea Party". I'm just sick and tired of all these people pretending to be Tea Party and making excuses for people like Russo. Now he's lying about being employed by the Lebanon Republican Committee to make himself look important and some people are still here defending him. Accountability; you break the law you pay the penalty. The whole principles and values thing of the 9-12. Either you believe that or you don't and Russo and his defenders obviously don't. Turning to calling people names to make your point just means you don't have a point to begin with.

Wondering why a person would say he is employed by the Republican Party if he is not. Or is he??? I din't know they had "employees". Just wondering...
