Donald Trump seems to be having a staff problem. He can’t seem to get a cohesive message released. I suggest he hire Joe Peters who has served in administration through the years. Here’s why he’d be a great hire:
1. He is a life long Republican with common sense and charisma.
2. As a former police officer he can accentuate Trump’s message on Law and Order. Or give Trump a better one than he has.
3. Joe Peters has been under fire. With his work in Homeland Security, as a candidate and most importantly as a member of Kathleen’s Kane’s staff. He can navigate all sorts of things……even crazy.


The Southern Columbia Football team that won a championship has a black eye. Five of the “big men” from the team were charged with beating wild animals to death. It was illegal to do. Five players Blake Marks, Austin Knepp, Gabe Delbo, Nick Becker and Mark Kitchen were charged with the illegal act. The Football coach called it a bad decision. I say it was animal cruelty.
But this is how they were caught. The idiots posed it on Instagram. Again I go back to one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies “The Best Man”.
Y'know, it's not that I object to your being a bastard, don't get me wrong there. It's your being such a stupid bastard that I object to.

The abject stupidity ofsome of  my fellow citizens of Wilkes Barre continues to amaze me. City residents are shocked and dismayed that Mayor Tony George who ran on a campaign of “Law and Order” is actually enforcing the laws of the city. I’m afraid that when crime was discussed in last year’s election, maybe some residents just saw Sherman Hills as crime. The Mayor is ticketing people for parking the wrong way on their streets and for various other offenses that were deemed minor. Residents feel that because enforcement didn’t happen recently, then maybe the laws disappeared? Uh no, they’re still on the books.
Plus anyone who thought a Mayor Tony George would not enforce them is living in Fantasy land and not Wilkes Barre. It should be remembered that Officer Tony George made his bones by following the letter of the law. Why people thought he’d lessen his stance for the letter of the law, any law and its enforcement is beyond me.

Katie McGinty and Senator Pat Toomey (Photo:
Politico just released their new Senate race rankings — and Pennsylvania is in the TOP FIVE races most likely to switch parties.
Politico calls Toomey “a favorite of the Koch network” — and only days ago, the Washington Post reported that the Koch Rrothers have already launched ground operations here in Pennsylvania.
This race is getting interesting. Pennsylvania in Presidential Election years has voted the opposite party in terms of the Senate race. 1964 Hugh Scott won while LBJ carried the state, in 1976 John Heinz won while Jimmy Carter prevailed. 1992 saw Arlen Specter in while Bill Clinton carried the state too. So Toomey may still have a chance given history.


The Citizen’s Voice reported the other day that according to a ruling from the state Office of Open Recordst he Wilkes-Barre Area School District has to disclose plans and specifications for its proposed new high school.Kim Borland, an attorney with the group Save Our Schools, requested the information. Save Our Schools has opposed the district’s plan to merge Coughlin and Meyers high schools in a new high school facility built on the Coughlin site in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
The district did not demonstrate “that the requested building plans and specifications would be reasonably likely to threaten the personal security of an individual” and “would be reasonably likely to threaten the physical security of a building,” the ruling said.
Okay, first off if Attorney Borland had not made the request, the information wouldn’t be released. Plus the reasons about security are just bullshit. These guys have no plan and I think that’s the reason why they won’t release it. This thing is going to cost millions and most likely bankrupt local homeowners. If anyone on the Board had guts, this plan should be put on hold. The District has kicked the can down the road for less pressing reasons than the survival of homeowners who happen to pay the bills.
The district has 30 days to decide whether to appeal the ruling to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas. (Citizen’s Voice, LuLac)

The football watching populace desire players to be animals on the field, so much so, we gleefully cheer as they receive and deliver repeated collisions with the intensity and force of low speed auto accidents.
These acts of extreme power, damage irreparably the player, harming bodies and brains that were never designed to survive a single impact unscathed, let alone blow after blow after blow for years or decades.
Even those who cease play at the high school level, may never physically or mentally be the same from the violence of the sport.
Damaged bodies and brains are showing up in teenagers as well as the aged. Yet, the blood-lust of the spectator desires bigger, faster, stronger -- so the players fill their bodies with drugs and hormones that not only effect the body, but the brain as well. They do this simply to play a game so as to fill the fans insatiable appetite for violence; yet, we are surprised when that predatory instinct, an instinct which is drilled into them from the first time they join an organized team, is expressed off the field.

It figures you'd wish you wrote something that rationalizes an irrational and deviant act. To try and provide some excuse for what any half-witted moron knows is wrong is inconceivable to those of us who hold our fellow human beings to a standard of being human. We need to institutionalize these scum with Jerry Sandusky...birds of a feather...please stop giving cover to deviant behavior.
