Sam Walton died in 1992, but there is little question that if he were alive today, he would be among the primary targets of the class-warfare proponents, otherwise known as progressive Democrats, the supporters of the party that was thoroughly rejected by Americans on Nov.

"Unfortunately, Keynesian economic theory has been a failure whenever it has been exercised."

The next fiscal stimulus that works will be the first in recorded history. Neo-Keynesians and Monetarists need to be routed from the swamps of DC.

Japan has 16+ stimulus efforts since 1990 and they have nothing to show for it except 200% debt-to-GDP.

"...during the first 20 months of his presidency, an almost complete destruction of the U.S. economy by Barack Obama."

And once again Sernoffsky attempts to rewrite history to suit his own biased and distorted view of events. It was George W. Bush that sent the country into the Great Recession and left Obama holding the bag. It will most likely take a decade or more for Obama and his successor to right the destruction that Bush left behind.

Maybe Sernoffsky needs to remind his minions that Walmart is good! As I recall, North Cornwall Township residents didn't want one.

That is an ignorant remark. There are many "average" families that live in NCT that didn't want the Walmart.

And, again, liberals utilize selective memory.

The Damnocrats had been in charge of the House since 2006, hence they controlled spending. And under their infamous direction the budget was blown to the record levels we have today.

And, oh by gosh by golly, Barack Hussein Obama was a Senator voting in favor of those same bloated budgets!

If your man Obama was such a messiah, why did he help drive the bus off the cliff?

Sorry, but over the years with the addition of cookie-cutter mcmansion deveopments like Creekside; Runnymede east, and others, the township has gone from a middle-class, somewhat agricultural community to "Latteville".

The result? The election of idiot yuppies Kip and Ralph, two supposedly educated men who can't follow the directions on a budget worksheet, and who pay over $40,000.00 for the creation of a yuppie-land zoning ordinance that among other things prevents residents from putting out Christmas lights one day before Nov. 25th, and makes it a crime to cut your grass after 7:00 p.m., or to blow snow before 7:00 in the morning, so you can make it to work.

Besides, Antnee, aren't you the fella who whined about how you couldn't find a decent job up here? How much do you really know about North Cornwall Township, seeing as you chose to live in Heaven's waiting room?

Well maybe I am out of touch with reality, but I would hardly consider that everyone that lives in or near developments such as Creekside to be overly wealthy. I grew up near Creekside, my father a lumberjack and my mother a bookkeeper. I believe that they represent the typical hardworking middle class. Sure, we had neighbors with extravagant houses, but that was not the norm. While I cannot speak for everyone, my parents as well as some of those in the neighborhood were not handed anything on a silver spoon.

Also, I never whined about not finding a decent job up there. I left the area for two reasons; one was to continue my education and the second was to get a fresh prospective of the world.

My wife and I plan to move back one day to start a family, but thanks to comments like yours, we are having second guesses.

You'd be welcome up here, as long as you didn't support the present "ruling elite" who are now attempting to govern the Township by passing a zoning ordinance that dictates nonsense like I've posted above.

I'll bet you could even follow dircetions on a budget worksheet.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

Oh, carl... my family was against it. Are they not average middleclass? And I believe they are Republicans, not the progessive democrats that Sernoffsky is hounding on here. Sernoffsky's claims are just as fallacious and incoherent as your posts.

The postings only reinforce what I have encountered in person when I lived in the area. I was labeled a "liberal elite" and "rich college boy" by many in the community whenever it was made known that I attended LVC, before anyone actually got to know me.

i said "in mass" so anyway you ( N corn twp)are not getting a walmart but now the biggest commercial development in leb co history which just re enforces the argument that the so called elites were against a supposed "low class" Walmart store, not development.

Even the local businesses didn't want the Wal-mart or the development. If I remember correctly, Fred Lorenzo and others who own nearby businesses didn't want either being built. This has nothing to do with this so-called "elites". People don't want the Wal-mart and don't want the development for the simple fact that they want to stay true to roots of the area, that being rural agricultural community. They want the farms and not development of any kind. This was the true concern of the "average person". But at the end of the day money talks, don't you just love unrestrained capitalism??
