"THIRD WORLD NELLIE FROM PITTSTON"
Is this what she was talking about??????
The other day Mrs. LuLac and I had to attend an event for our church. So I got home a little early to change and get going. As I was suiting up, I had Steve Corbett on. This was Monday afternoon at about 5:56PM. Corbett got a call from a rather condescending woman from Pittston who used very familiar terms with him. She called him “sweetie” and “dear” which I thought was kind of odd. But then things got worse. She told the WILK Talk Show host that the United States was becoming a third world country. She of course blamed the President and the Democrats. Corbett asked her if she was ever in a third world country and by that time she was just talking gibberish.
Whoever that woman was, and I’ll call her Nellie from Pittston, let me just review a couple of things here.
If America was third world country, she would not be able to get clean drinking water out of her tap.
If America were a Third World country, her roads would be impassable and if there was any concrete it would be used for the power elite and not mass transportation.
If America were a Third World country, there would not be any free media to speak of. Corbett would be in a gulag and she’d be taken away for voicing her opinions.
If this were a Third World country, there would be no housing for the poor. They’d live in shacks and on the street.
If this were a Third World Country, fear would reign and medical workers focusing on helping children getting vaccines would be killed.
If this were a Third World Country, there would be no electrical grid to speak of and no creature comforts.
If this were a Third World Country, this loudmouth would be taking a dump in the street instead of using facilities.
The beauty of America and Talk Radio for that matter is that we encourage the ignorance of the dullards among us to be exhibited fully in all their masterful glory. In America, we laugh at the ignorant slobs who latch onto a catch phrase and run with it. In a Third World Country they wouldn’t have that opportunity.
Every time I hear someone like this, I alternately get amused and scared. This woman actually can vote and I shudder to think, might actually be able to or has bred.
Bill Stinson. He was a Philadelphia lawmaker charged with vote fraud in 1995. As my friend L.A. Tarone told us Wednesday night Stinson used dubious means to gain election to the State Senate in a Special Election. He was caught and left office being urged to by then Mayor Ed Rendell and other Democratic power brokers.
Since then Stinson has been used as an example of voter fraud in Pennsylvania. My question is this. Has there be any egregious efforts to defraud voters in Pennsylvania since that time? I’m not asking could there be a problem, or what if this could happen, will happen, might happen, etc. I’m asking if there was any major case involving vote fraud in Pennsylvania since Bill Stinson? The answer is NO. And to dig this guy up every time the GOP wants to disenfranchise voters by complaining about early voting, or making the process more inclusive shows that the process is working just fine.
No one is gaming the system except guys like Mike Turzai the current GOP Majority Leader who said this at a 2012 GOP Party meeting when going through a laundry list of the State House accomplishments. "Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”And just who carried Pennsylvania?
By the way, this from the New York Times twenty years ago:
Acquittal in Vote-Fraud Case
Published: June 23, 1994
Former State Senator William G. Stinson 3d, who was stripped of his seat because of election fraud, was acquitted today of charges that he illegally opened voting machines and absentee ballots on Election Day.
Mr. Stinson, a Democrat who was once an assistant Deputy Mayor of Philadelphia, said: "I just feel good that justice has been done. Now I can get back to my family and a normal life."
The guy who has been vilified as stealing an election was……wait for it…….ACQUITTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So let’s not have people gin up the fans of fear with an isolated incident from twenty years ago. Some say there is voter fraud all the time. I heard that on the radio and TV too in every election where a Democrat is leading. Two words: PROVE IT!
