The Real Pat Toomey – Final Entry

Pat Toomey knows that his ideology would make him unelectable so he re-invented himself as a “center-right” candidate.  The truth is that Toomey only changed his coat.  The clothes inside are still the same and this is why Toomey is evasive when asked questions about how he would represent the people of Pennsylvania.   Toomey is more reactionary than Santorum and he would only represent the interests of the wealthy and corporations which is what he did in the past.  He is hoping that you don’t remember.  Well, we do remember and in case you forgot, read this article.  It will remind you of the REAL TOOMEY and who he represents.  It won’t be you.

Did Corbett Ever Investigate the Republicans?

Tom Corbett is so partisan that he only went after the Democrats in Bonusgate even though the Republicans were just as guilty.

How can Tom Corbett represent the interests of ALL Pennsylvanians when his investigations as Attorney General only go in one direction, against the Democrats?

For Republicans Only

Tom Corbett does NOT believe in supporting free speech, our First Amendment right, especially when someone is critical of him.

Tom Corbett disregards our Constitutional rights to suit his own corruption.  We dare not question Corbett.  If Tom Corbett gets elected as Governor of Pennsylvania, will he be a dictator?  Hum…  His ethics as Attorney General is questionable.

All Politics Are Local

This letter was forwarded to me by a friend.   In order to protect identities, some information was removed.

Dear ________ Township Democrat,

The coming election on November 2nd is the most important in the past ten years and may be the most important in your lifetime. There are forces at work to see to it that Democratic turnout remains low so that the Republicans can engineer their dream in Pennsylvania and the nation. And what is their dream and what does it mean to you and your family? Republican candidates across the country have articulated this dream in many ways but it comes down to this:

Shredding and dismantling the social safety nets of Social Security, Medicare, and benefits to Veterans

More attacks on our Constitutional rights                           Continued outsourcing of US jobs

More attacks on women’s rights and the poor                   Endless witch hunts in the House

Recklessly mishandling the economy                                    Failure to regulate Wall Street

Saying NO to all legislation, unless it is to extend tax cuts for the rich

 Their notion of shrinking government, as if it were somehow the enemy of the people is expressed as ‘privatizing’ or ‘personalizing’ Social Security to eventually get rid of it and turning back the clock to the ‘good old days’ of the 1800’s where bank panics like the one of 2008 were regular occurrences.

So what is their strategy? It starts in Washington and it ends in places like____Township with voters like you.  The mailers you have been receiving attacking Dave Kessler are part of a national campaign to take control of our state government so that they can impose their congressional redistricting plan on Pennsylvania.  They are targeting this seat to get a Republican majority in Harrisburg.

Don’t be fooled. Republicans are not on your side, and they hope you stay home on Nov.2. Democrats support “Economic Patriotism” which means, Products Made in America , Jobs for Americans, and protections for  the environment and security for the vulnerable.  

Get out and vote for Democrats to keep the right wing fringe of the Republican Party and the Tea Party from taking over our government.

Hemp Could Save Our Nation

This is a must read diary from DailyKos…

Hemp is the hidden key to legalizing marijuana.

Here’s an excerpt…

Hemp is the far bigger economic issue hiding behind legal marijuana.

If the upcoming pot legalization ballot in California were decided by hemp farmers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, it would be no contest.  For purely economic reasons, if you told the Constitutional Convention in 1787 that the nation they were founding would someday make hemp illegal, they would have laughed you out of the room.

If California legalizes pot, it will save the state millions in avoided legal and imprisonment costs, while raising it millions in taxes.

But if it then legalizes hemp, it will open up to a multi-billion-dollar crop that has been a staple of human agriculture for thousands of years, and that could save the farms of thousands of American families.

In order to understand the full impact of hemp on our economy, read the complete diary at this link.  Imagine all the trees that would be saved if we switched from wood to hemp for making paper.

The Declaration of Independence is written on hemp paper.
