Not so temporary tax?

Temporary in government terms means only that whatever program or tax (new or an increase) will temporarily be used for it's stated goal. It has nothing to do with an expiration date or completion of said goal.  (Aug 8, 2009 | post #2)

Hot Dog vendor: BethlehemA's hot dog vendor is hit-and-ru...

It's pretty simple to me ... If the food they are serving can't compete with boiled hot dogs and a can of Coke, should they really be in business?  (Jul 20, 2009 | post #12)

Specter owes no one

I love the line "ultra conservative John McCain" ... It's clueless voters like this that are killing our country. McCain is/was a center, or possibly slightly right-center candidate. This guy is as brainwashed(dead) as all the morons calling Obama a socialist. Until the people of this country wake up, stop watching, reading and believing every word idiots like Hannity and Olberman say we will never get past the "my party is better than your party" BS and find real LEADERS.  (May 6, 2009 | post #2)

Give up on selling the liquor stores

"The fact remains that the Wine and Spirits Shops raise nearly $500 million a year for the General Fund and local treasuries." ------------ The fact remains that 350M of the "nearly $500M" (which is more like $440M) is from TAXES and has nothing to do with the LCB  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #3)

Colleges ask Obama for 5% of economic stimulus cash

Perhaps that would be wise for the smaller state schools, but last year (2007) the Penn State athletic department made over 70 million.  (Dec 17, 2008 | post #8)

Free-thinking playright shocks 'ideologically rigid'

Speaking of "ideologicall y rigid", I believe it's both the right and left: Our way = good Your way = BadLiberalism: a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties. I would love to find a true liberal. Much like the neo-con movement has hijacked the word conservative the neo-socialist movement has hijacked Liberal.  (Mar 24, 2008 | post #9)

False hope from liberals

I would vote for a REAL Liberal in a heartbeat. The problem is that here aren't any! Just as there are no longer any conservatives in our government, sadly there are no liberals either.  (Feb 23, 2008 | post #42)

State says Paterno's pay exceeds half-million dollars

From the AP story on ESPN.com: "Paterno was paid $427,220 in the first 10 months of 2007 -- putting his year-end salary on track to be $512,664. He was paid $490,638 last year, according to the retirement system." "A 2006 comparison by USA Today showed that Big Ten coaches' salaries ranged from $231,000 at Purdue to $2.8 million at Iowa." = = = = = = = = Most "big" division 1A school uses the money generated from the football program to support all other mens and womens sports programs. Not to mention the money that is given to each conference for bowl games.  (Nov 29, 2007 | post #40)

PPL price hike could be higher -- themorningcall.com

It might have been a good thing had it been true deregulation and forced competition ... the problem is that local power companies still have their local monopoly. Just another way the PA government screwed the people.  (Oct 4, 2007 | post #13)

NHL suspends Flyers prospect Downie 20 games -- themornin...

He left his feet, but from the video it looks like he was gliding a good 10 feet before contact. http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=322zq TkL0-c As far as the league is concerned we'll have to wait until the first Pronger elbow of the season and see what they do then. I have a feeling this is only because Downie is a rookie and not well known.  (Sep 28, 2007 | post #8)

First step toward drought -- themorningcall.com

I honestly believe that we're already there. Money based on the fears of the uninformed, not to mention the pandering of politicians, has already polluted real science.  (Aug 7, 2007 | post #9)

First step toward drought -- themorningcall.com

Yes, but there is money to be made by politicizing it ... I think we need a multi-million dollar study to find out why we might have a drought and/or who caused the possible drought.  (Aug 6, 2007 | post #7)
