CRUZ PLAYS THE NAZI CARD!!!!Ted Cruz in his fake filibuster compared the acceptance of Obamacare and the policies of Barack Obama to the rise of Nazi Germany. Cruz said that the United States today has become a type of Neville Chamberlain nation (the English Prime Minister who appeased Hitler in the late 30s) and went on to say that our country is very much like the English government that never stood up to Hitler. Again he repeated that the appeasement came in the 40s.
Well Mr. Princeton and Harvard grad, by the 40s England had chosen Winston Churchill as its Prime Minister, the United States had been involved in arming Europe with the Lend Lease Act and U.S. service people were on the ground and in the air fighting against Hitler and what he stood for. Maybe for all of his Ivy League education, he should had a seventh grade American History and Civics teacher like the late Marie Fearick of Pittston. Mrs. Gerick, the first lay teacher at St. John the Baptist Slovak Grade School in Pittston would have slapped him on the side of the head. My grade school classmates, Mike Giamber, Andy and Drew Wasko, Paul Komensky, Joe White, Bob Hizny, Bob Para, my cousins Bob Yonki, Karen Musloski, Tom Pribula, Wyoming Dave Dellarte and even my seventh grade girlfriend would tell you Mrs. Fearick would slap him silly for being so historically dense. But with Ted Cruz, it’s not about what you know, it’s all about the show.
QUESTIONS FOR THE GOPIf Obama Care hasn’t started, how do you know it won’t work?
How can a failure be something before it starts?
Why does a party that cares so much about an unborn fetus not give rat’s ass about a live baby born with a disease that in the insurance industry is known as a preexisting condition?
Why does a party that got 5,000 people killed in undeclared wars and spent 30 billion dollars a month all of sudden come to religion on the deficit? Weren’t the future of “our children” just as important when we were buying bullets back then? Isn’t health care for 30 million uninsured a better investment?
Why is this party so fixated on Benghazi where four Americans died (a tragedy for sure) and never talks about the 5,000 dead Americans from the undeclared wars?
Why is a party advocating Americans not signing up for a government program designed to help effectively cheer leading and urging its failure?
Isn’t that treason?
Why does this party insist on hurting the middle class?
The party of the men and women I voted for as an Independent Democrat who was taught government was a bi partisan effort is just a memory. I can no longer support a party that is

CARTWRIGHT LAUDS AGENCY ANNIVERSARY
U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright introduced a resolution commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Companion legislation has been introduced in the Senate by Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL).
Since 1994, more than 39,000 Pennsylvania residents have participated in CNCS programs and served for over 51 million hours at more than2,800 locations throughout the state.
“Each day, CNCS provides millions of volunteers with the opportunity to serve and achieve a positive change within thousands of communities across the state and around the country addressing a wide range of issues,” said Cartwright. “I am proud to work with Senator Nelson to celebrate CNCS’ 20th anniversary and look forward to the continued impact of the agency.”
“Over the past 20 years, millions of people have been able to give back through programs organized by CNCS,” said Nelson. “Americans have become more involved in their community, and neighborhoods and towns across this country are stronger as a result. It’s been an impressive 20 years, and I know CNCS will continue to build upon that success in the future.”
Since 1993, the CNCS has operated as an independent Federal agency, overseeing all national and community service programs authorized by the National and Community Service Act of 1993 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973. These programs include AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and Learn and Serve America. Each year, CNCS engages more than five million Americans in service.

1976The Irish rock band U2 is formed after drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. posts a note seeking members for a band on the notice board of his Dublin school.............................Stevie Wonder releases his hit-album Songs in the Key of Life.....
After the success of the first Presidential debate since 1960, the Vice presidential candidates, two United States Senators agree to a debate for mid October. Kansas and Minnesota Senators Bob Dole and Walter Mondale agree to the ground rules but continue on their campaign…..in Pennsylvania the budget passed by the Legislature at the direction of Governor Shapp begins to fall apart. While it only projected spending for 5 billion dollars, money projected for tourism dollars was totally inflated. Lawmakers told the Shapp administration that the state might not have enough to cover education subsidies……….in Lackawanna County, Eugene Hickey keeps making the rounds and tells anyone who will listen that he will run for Mayor of Scranton. Eugene Peters the two term Mayor is mum on his plans for ’77 and the number two song in America and LuLacland thirty seven years ago was “The Best Disco In Town” by the Ritchie Family. The number one song was “Disco Duck” but I refused to have anything to do with back then and I still feel the same way today. (Griffith Photo: Citizen's Voice, Sad Elephant, Sean Binkley).
