Republicans To Rally For Good Government In Beaver County

republican

The Republican Committee of Beaver County is holding a “Rally For Good Government” on Monday, October 7th. Organizers of the gathering, which will take place from 6pm to 8pm at the gazebo in Beaver’s Irvine Park, say it’s time to “start a conversation about the kind of government Beaver County deserves but does not yet have.”

State Senator Elder Vogel will serve as the MC for the event. Scheduled to speak are Representative Jim Marshall, Representative Jim Christiana, Commissioner Dennis Nichols, Republican Committee Chairwoman Megan Carpenter, Vice Chairman Dave Lozier, committee volunteers Eric Owens of White Twp, Pam Hupp of Chippewa Twp, along with Sherman Hostetter and Bob Oles of Beaver.

“We had scheduled Congressman Rothfus but we found out that due to the people’s business, he will not be home in time to make our rally,” Chairwoman Megan Carpenter told the Beaver Countian. Congressman Rothfus is currently in Washington, DC where political wranglings have led to the shutdown of the federal government.

Carpenter said many of the problems we face as a country, and as a county, are due to a lack of bipartisanship. “The two sides don’t know how to work well together in a lot of cases, so we want to promote the fact that they should be working well together,” said Carpenter. “Regardless of what your political philosophy is, and how you get elected to that position, once you’re there you’re there to do the people’s business. I think that a lot of times petty little squabbles break out, and we need to stop that and do what is appropriate and what is right.”

Along with the speakers, the Rally For Good Government will also be featuring live entertainment and local food vendors. Tents are being set up by organizers in case of rain.

    • In our Citizens’ experience, the Beaver Countian Republicans are uncouth misfits who should be run out of their own barbaric county, so we sent them to Harrisburg.

      Then again, according to the Democrats, We the People, already run the Political misfits outta our county.

      We sent Campaign Scholarship Self-Funded Educated Charlie Camp to work under Good Government Tom Corbett as Camp’s wife works at Trombetta’s Funded Cyber school with Spaniks Son back to Harrisburg funding of education to improve their lives, pensions, and have a job.

      Now Republican Corbett Lawyers Brain Trust is trying to figure out whether Same Sex Marriages is between children and then Tom Corbett corrected them, and said, it was more like a Marriage between Brother & Sister and thought that was thoughtful too and explained the confusion?

      Hard to March for good Government when led by this kind of leadership, hiring the best and brightest of Beaver County leaving our citizens to remark, “I’m not changing my bed ’til I’m sure who’s in it!”
      :beatup:

  3. I hate to be the bearer of bad news to Ms Carpenter but Keith is NOT doing the “peoples business”. He, along with the rest of the extreme right, is obstructing the democratic process and making a mockery out of the political process. The fact that he was scheduled to attend a rally that wants to focus on bipartisanship is laughable and somewhat pathetic. The only reason he was elected was due to gerrymandering of historic proportions. He DOES NOT represent the people of his district.

  5. A foxnews poll showed that the G.O.P. has a disapproval rating of 59%, and that’s a FOXNEWS POLL!

    Good luck with all that jazz!

      But that in no way means that the majority of people are supporting democrats, either. People are fed up with the crap being spewed from both parties…

  7. Megan Carpenter is the most right wing extremist in Beaver County. Anyone who sits close to her knows she hates democrats. So why all the bull shit from the GOP about claiming leaderships lacks bipartisanship. Maybe somebody would believe you if Megan Carpenter wasn’t your mouth piece. So now Senator Vogel is the MC filling in for Keith Rothfus? What the hell is the matter with you Elder? You’re the most popular republican in Beaver County and you want to align yourself to this whacked out GOP committee? Stay far away from them as you can. Carpenter and Lozier are always sniffing out people to run against you and you’re going to rally with them? Same goes for Christiania and Marshall. You’re all going to look like a bunch of tea baggers with Megan Carpenter. You’ll all loose credibility and popularity. Nobody republican with a lick of sense gives Meagan carpenter the time of day. I might vote straight democrat after reading this garbage.

      It has been my experience that Senator Vogel is not popular because of who he aligns himself with, but because he does right by the people he represents. He’s one of the few politicians that know what it’s like in the real world and still appreciates what it means to work for a living. A lot of times when he not in Harrisburg with the ilk of this state trying to fight for us, he’s on his dairy farm busting his ass.

      This mentality of “you can’t be seen around this person cause it might hurt your votes” is one of the biggest things that’s wrong with this country. I don’t know anything about Ms. Carpenter;’but what I do know is that, just like the rest of us, she has a point-of-view and an opinion. Just because she may be a liberal nut job or a tea partier (which at this point, I personally, would take as a compliment as I support the Constitution and think we need our government to return to abiding by it instead of working around it) doesn’t mean that her position doesn’t matter. One of the only ways that we can resolve this garbage mess that we’re in is if we all start talking to each other and resolving our differences.

  8. Ummmm…..let’s see….the republicans have scheduled a rally to talk about bipartisanship but yet they invited no democrats which would be the very definition of working in a bipartinsan fashion. What this really is then is a “let’s bash the democrats” rally. Perhaps they ought to call it what it is instead of pretending that they are committed to working in a bipartisan manner. If they want credibility here they should have invited democrats to see if they could all commit to working together. Furthermore, I agree with the fact that Keith Rothfuss doesn’t represent the majority of the people whose district he represents which is precisely what he was elected to do. When the majority of Beaver County believes that the tea party platform of shutting down the government is how to effectuate change then he will be doing his job….since that isn’t what the majority thinks it’s just fortunate that we will have a chance soon to send Mr. Rothfuss looking for a new job.

    Enjoy your bashfest, Ms. Carpenter….but please, in the future let’s just call things what they really are instead of sugar coating them.

    PS – If Elder is going to be the MC then it ought to be an exciting rally…..NOT.

    • Well, those are the boobs that make our laws. That’s the democratic process. Political Evolution is a tricky question, which is hungrier, my stomach or my soul?

      Are you an evolutionist? An infidel? A sinner? Hot dog?…..or the worst kind, do you write for a newspaper?…..Oh then you must be a man of God?…..or just a man of ulcers?

      Onward, Christiana soldiers, marching as to war,
      with the cross of Jesus going on before.
      Christiana, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
      forward into battle see his banners go!

    • Sid, I think you need to educate yourself and watch the documentary “Runaway Slave” by C.L. Bryant. The dumbacratic party started the KKK and blocked ending segregation numerous times. Welfare and Entitlement program are tools that the democrats use to keep people dependent of the government. In 2006 Obama voted “No” on the raising the debt ceiling and look now, He wants to raise the debt ceiling in 2013 and has shut down the government blaming the Republicans for not allowing him to raise it. Believe me, all government parties are corrupt……We need the common man to run for office, you know, Joe the Plumber, Chuck the accountant, Jane the House Wife, Becky the Store Manager. “We the People” “Small Government” “The government is here to protect the people, not run there lives”.

  10. I’m interested to hear how “moderate” the LOCAL Republicans are. It’s not hard to bad-mouth Democrats when you’re talking about the jokers in the Courthouse. However, there IS ONE problem: Nichols is a Republican. How are they going to whitewash HIS errors, vis-a-vis Friendship Ridge, the Sheriff, etc?

    Ms Carpenter says there’s a lack of bi-partisanship. No Duh… but, her rhetoric leads me to believe it’s the same old BS. She says, “We want to promote the fact that they should be working well together”, and continues “Regardless of what your political philosophy is… once you’re there you’re there to do the people’s business… do what is appropriate and what is right.” Is she implying the rally is to be bi-partisan (but is being sponsored by the Republican party?) She sounds like the Republicans that went to the WWII memorial to rant at a Park Ranger because SHE wouldn’t open the gate… after THEY shut down the government… but I digress.

    Ms Carpenter let the cat outta the bag when she said “We had scheduled Congressman Rothfus but we found out that due to the people’s business, he will not be home in time to make our rally.” How convenient.

    I am not amused by the Republican mantra that they are doing the “people’s business”, while they cripple the country, trying to derail a law passed, enacted and approved by the Supreme Court. (Does that mean any law one doesn’t like can be held hostage until it is changed?) That’s NO WAY to run a country.

    Good government in Beaver County reflects on good government nationally – and vice versa.
    Just quit nibbling on my ear while you’re trying to shove it to me.

    • misinfo2000-It was YOUR messiah B-Rack Insane Nobama and his cohort Harry Reid that shut down the government. Them, and them alone. It’s misinformed people like you is why this country and county is in the mess it is in. Now go back to watching your soaps and comedy central shows.

      • Well…. if it isn’t my old pal Nobama – again.

  11. Sid,
    Of course, you are aware the “Klan” was primarily a racist vehicle of the Southern Democrats, and was created as a backlash against the freeing of African American slaves, by whom… a Republican president (Lincoln). In addition, they liked to kill blacks and who else?… ah… White Republicans… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan

    And perhaps you are also aware that, contrary perhaps to what you may have been told, considerably more Republicans voted for the Civil Right Act of 1964 than did Democrats…
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1964
    (and look who filibustered that bill… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan_members_in_United_States_politics)

    Did you know the first 3 Senators elected to office were Republicans, the first of which was in 1870…
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_African-American_United_States_Senators

    And the first black congressman?… yep, you guessed it…

    • What the f(*& is up with conservative white people trying to convince each other that they are not as racist as everyone thinks? The Civil Rights law was voted against by 100% of Southern Republicans. 100%!!! It doesn’t get any worse than that. The whole issue was more North vs South than R vs D. Also, the Republican party of 1870 was much different from the one today, as was the Democratic party. You are going to convince no one that the GOP is somehow more friendly to blacks than the Democrats. Don’t even waste your time. The GOP is a party of mostly old, white guys and is slowly heading to 2nd class status.

      • The GOP wants you too work and be entitled to your own money. The more money a person makes, the better the country is. Regardless of color. Make sense? Oh and you are the one who started the racist bullshit! You are on the same level as the KKK when you do that. So dont come back to me as the victim. Because you are now the instigator.

  12. The air head Dummy-crats do not understand
    that no one should ever spend more than they earn. If God’s party (GOP) allow Osama Obama to raise the debt ceiling, we will become like Greece. Pot smoking Obama said that he never had a math class after 7th grade and that is obvious because he is acting stupidly with regards to the national debt.

  13. Silence_Dogood two things are true in your comment, 1. Vogel is right by the people he represents. 2. You don’t know anything about Ms. Carpenter! Megan Carpenter is a extreme right wing radical. She has repeatedly ridiculed Senator Vogel for voting on the side of the democrats in the state. I’ve sat at tables with her and trust my own two ears.
    This Rally for good government is just a political spin on words to attract a crowd to beat up on democrat leadership. If this were Marty Mathews holding the rally, I’d trust it was sincere and face value. Being that it’s Megan Carpenter and Dave Lozier, undeniably indicates it’s just political propaganda for the tea party leadership hiding in the GOP county committee. It’s for these reasons, the good senator needs to distance himself from the Beaver County GOP – Tea Bagger Bullies. Senator Vogel takes more votes from democrats than democrat candidates that ran against him in previous elections. I beg to differ with your opinion that who the senator is standing by has nothing to do with his popularity. Keep him around Tea Party hounds Carpenter and Lozier and see how many democrats Elder Vogel draws in for the future. His stellar reputation will decline fast around these right winger – groupies. People in this county are loosing their jobs, their homes, their kids abilities to go to college, and yet they trusted Elder Vogel and voted for him in spite of a democrat candidate that gained a lot of support from both sides of the isles. Elder’s people need to keep that in mind, this could be a pivotal turn for Senator Vogel as the MC of this rally. Especially after Carpenter gets a hold of a microphone.

  14. Is Nick Trombetta funding the March For Good Government or just using more Campaign Donations to Vogel, Corbett, Marshall Camp, and Christiana Again?

    Nick Trombetta the Grand Marshall of this parade would be the kind of irony the Republican Party needs to improve its image among Democrats. I heard this upset Light bulb Jim Marshall is upset because he thinks a Grand Marshall is his Grand Father or Grand Mother but Jim has always been about a half a bubble off plumb for a while now.

    I heard Rob Matzie is going to be carrying pictures of Florida Retired State (Known As Five Pensioner Gerry The Marine) Gerry LaValle and his Convicted Wife Darla also known as (United Way Relatives Pensioner Greedy Gal), and of course let us not leave off Pictures of Mike Veon. This is what the Communists Party does when advocating Good Government of One Party? Matzie then found out it was a Republican March and will only March half way unless he gets more Campaign contributions from Trombetta? :lol:

  15. Thirty-two years of Reaganomics has driven the USA into a ditch; this is far too much abuse of the working class who have been robbed by the Big Banks, the Transnational Corporations, the Outsourcing of Jobs and they continue being robbed. Prior to 1980 the top income tax rate was at 74% half of what it is today. How can we as a nation survive this obsession with money and greed? This is destructive behavior that will eventual self destruct. This path is unsustainable, the middle class has been crushed, the 99% live in poverty, so what’s left absolutely nothing. The working class must choose between feeding their families and paying their bills. The Republicans want to take a hatch to SNAP by 40 Billion US Dollars this program is better known as the Food Stamp Program this will kick off 400 thousand recipients who struggle to pay living expenses. This is harmful to local businesses this will freeze hiring, and create high unemployment. We have a weak economy already with 20 million working part time and some people have two or more jobs just to make 40 hours a week. The politicians are unresponsive to this economic threat; they’ve been brain washed by wealthy corporations. We must find the will to tax these out of control corporations who have this obsession with obscene profit without regard for any kind of life. We need tariffs on foreign corporations, transaction fees on Wall Street, lift the CAP on Social Security Fund, and lower the retirement to age 55 with full benefits in order to free up jobs. We must invest heavily in education, technology, upgrade all public libraries, provide single-payer health coverage to all our citizens, and public schools and colleges should all be free to anyone who wants an education this will slow down the massive violence that’s rampant throughout our society that’s destroying families.

    • The 22 statistics detailed here prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the middle class is being systematically wiped out of existence in America.

      The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer at a staggering rate. Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now that is changing at a blinding pace.

      So why are we witnessing such fundamental changes? Well, the globalism and “free trade” that our politicians and business leaders insisted would be so good for us have had some rather nasty side effects. It turns out that they didn’t tell us that the “global economy” would mean that middle class American workers would eventually have to directly compete for jobs with people on the other side of the world where there is no minimum wage and very few regulations. The big global corporations have greatly benefited by exploiting third world labor pools over the last several decades, but middle class American workers have increasingly found things to be very tough.

      Here are the statistics to prove it:

      • 83 percent of all U.S. stocks are in the hands of 1 percent of the people.
      • 61 percent of Americans “always or usually” live paycheck to paycheck, which was up from 49 percent in 2008 and 43 percent in 2007.
      • 66 percent of the income growth between 2001 and 2007 went to the top 1% of all Americans.
      • 36 percent of Americans say that they don’t contribute anything to retirement savings.
      • A staggering 43 percent of Americans have less than $10,000 saved up for retirement.
      • 24 percent of American workers say that they have postponed their planned retirement age in the past year.
      • Over 1.4 million Americans filed for personal bankruptcy in 2009, which represented a 32 percent increase over 2008.
      • Only the top 5 percent of U.S. households have earned enough additional income to match the rise in housing costs since 1975.
      • For the first time in U.S. history, banks own a greater share of residential housing net worth in the United States than all individual Americans put together.
      • In 1950, the ratio of the average executive’s paycheck to the average worker’s paycheck was about 30 to 1. Since the year 2000, that ratio has exploded to between 300 to 500 to one.
      • As of 2007, the bottom 80 percent of American households held about 7% of the liquid financial assets.
      • The bottom 50 percent of income earners in the United States now collectively own less than 1 percent of the nation’s wealth.
      • Average Wall Street bonuses for 2009 were up 17 percent when compared with 2008.
      • In the United States, the average federal worker now earns 60% MORE than the average worker in the private sector.
      • The top 1 percent of U.S. households own nearly twice as much of America’s corporate wealth as they did just 15 years ago.
      • In America today, the average time needed to find a job has risen to a record 35.2 weeks.
      • More than 40 percent of Americans who actually are employed are now working in service jobs, which are often very low paying.
      • or the first time in U.S. history, more than 40 million Americans are on food stamps, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture projects that number will go up to 43 million Americans in 2011.
      • This is what American workers now must compete against: in China a garment worker makes approximately 86 cents an hour and in Cambodia a garment worker makes approximately 22 cents an hour.
      • Approximately 21 percent of all children in the United States are living below the poverty line in 2010 – the highest rate in 20 years.
      • Despite the financial crisis, the number of millionaires in the United States rose a whopping 16 percent to 7.8 million in 2009.
      • The top 10 percent of Americans now earn around 50 percent of our national income.

      Giant Sucking Sound

      The reality is that no matter how smart, how strong, how educated or how hard working American workers are, they just cannot compete with people who are desperate to put in 10 to 12 hour days at less than a dollar an hour on the other side of the world. After all, what corporation in their right mind is going to pay an American worker 10 times more (plus benefits) to do the same job? The world is fundamentally changing. Wealth and power are rapidly becoming concentrated at the top and the big global corporations are making massive amounts of money. Meanwhile, the American middle class is being systematically wiped out of existence as U.S. workers are slowly being merged into the new “global” labor pool.

      What do most Americans have to offer in the marketplace other than their labor? Not much. The truth is that most Americans are absolutely dependent on someone else giving them a job. But today, U.S. workers are “less attractive” than ever. Compared to the rest of the world, American workers are extremely expensive, and the government keeps passing more rules and regulations seemingly on a monthly basis that makes it even more difficult to conduct business in the United States.

      So corporations are moving operations out of the U.S. at breathtaking speed. Since the U.S. government does not penalize them for doing so, there really is no incentive for them to stay.

      What has developed is a situation where the people at the top are doing quite well, while most Americans are finding it increasingly difficult to make it. There are now about six unemployed Americans for every new job opening in the United States, and the number of “chronically unemployed” is absolutely soaring. There simply are not nearly enough jobs for everyone.

      Many of those who are able to get jobs are finding that they are making less money than they used to. In fact, an increasingly large percentage of Americans are working at low wage retail and service jobs.

      But you can’t raise a family on what you make flipping burgers at McDonald’s or on what you bring in from greeting customers down at the local Wal-Mart.

      The truth is that the middle class in America is dying — and once it is gone it will be incredibly difficult to rebuild.

      • SpeakTheTruthToo

        Some comments on these statistics:

        • 83 percent of all U.S. stocks are in the hands of 1 percent of the people-There is nothing that is stopping anyone from buying stock in America. Instead of keeping up with the Jones’ material items, invent in your future.

        • 61 percent of Americans “always or usually” live paycheck to paycheck, which was up from 49 percent in 2008 and 43 percent in 2007-Learn how to budget and live within your means. Take advantage of the free public education system we have in this country instead of relying on someone else to take care of you. Nobody ever takes responsibility for the position they are in life. It’s always someone else’s fault.

        • 66 percent of the income growth between 2001 and 2007 went to the top 1% of all Americans-I do not hate nor begrudge people who work hard to create something out of themselves. You shouldn’t either.

        • 36 percent of Americans say that they don’t contribute anything to retirement savings-Stop buying the latest cell phones, data plans, cars, shoes, tablet computers, fancy vacations, etc. Don’t live above your means. Put that money into your retirement.

        • A staggering 43 percent of Americans have less than $10,000 saved up for retirement-See above.

        • 24 percent of American workers say that they have postponed their planned retirement age in the past year-See above.

        • Over 1.4 million Americans filed for personal bankruptcy in 2009, which represented a 32 percent increase over 2008-Don’t buy things you cannot afford.

        • Only the top 5 percent of U.S. households have earned enough additional income to match the rise in housing costs since 1975-Homeownership was not mean for everyone.

        • For the first time in U.S. history, banks own a greater share of residential housing net worth in the United States than all individual Americans put together-Don’t buy a house you cannot afford. That is why this has happened.

        • In 1950, the ratio of the average executive’s paycheck to the average worker’s paycheck was about 30 to 1. Since the year 2000, that ratio has exploded to between 300 to 500 to one-So what?

        • As of 2007, the bottom 80 percent of American households held about 7% of the liquid financial assets-Those who budget and live within their means make it.

        • The bottom 50 percent of income earners in the United States now collectively own less than 1 percent of the nation’s wealth-See above.

        • Average Wall Street bonuses for 2009 were up 17 percent when compared with 2008-So what?

        • In the United States, the average federal worker now earns 60% MORE than the average worker in the private sector-They are generally more educated.

        • The top 1 percent of U.S. households own nearly twice as much of America’s corporate wealth as they did just 15 years ago-So what?

        • In America today, the average time needed to find a job has risen to a record 35.2 weeks-Competition.

        • More than 40 percent of Americans who actually are employed are now working in service jobs, which are often very low paying-Because they don’t think education is important, and they do not take advantage of their free public education.

        • or the first time in U.S. history, more than 40 million Americans are on food stamps, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture projects that number will go up to 43 million Americans in 2011-See above.

        • This is what American workers now must compete against: in China a garment worker makes approximately 86 cents an hour and in Cambodia a garment worker makes approximately 22 cents an hour-Thank free trade for that one.

        • Approximately 21 percent of all children in the United States are living below the poverty line in 2010 – the highest rate in 20 years-Dont’ have kids you cannot afford.

        • Despite the financial crisis, the number of millionaires in the United States rose a whopping 16 percent to 7.8 million in 2009-Don’t hate people who work hard for their money.

        • The top 10 percent of Americans now earn around 50 percent of our national income-See above.

        I am so tired of people who sit back and complain but do NOTHING to make their own situation in life better. Stop blaming everyone else and take responsibility for your life.

        Let the flaming begin, but you know I’m right.

      • @sPEAKSTHETRUTH2;
        That shit sounds really good and dandy, but this ain’t the wild, wild west. This isn’t untamed country. When the uber rich were poor it was. They took land, labor and anything else they could take to become rich. Nobody who has known hard times can identify with what you say. Take away your home and business ownership, your money and your connections, a person like you would probably commit suicide because you couldn’t cope. You think the people who read your bullshit don’t know that? And how the hell do you expect a person with a family, making ten, fifteen bucks an hour to save anything for retirement? Nevermind, I know. You already said it; leave technology alone (cellphones, cable, cars, etc.), home school your children (after work, but still pay school tax and watch people with your mindset cut money for education out of the budget), don’t get healthcare for you and your family, eat pork every day (its cheap) use candles for light and wood for heat, and put what you save aside for retirement. Thats what you did, right? What an idiot!!!!

Remember the wisdom of Solomon in the book of Proverbs. “He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind.” Hello, Devil. Welcome to Hell. He that sups with the devil must have a long spoon. :omg:

  18. The Beaver County Republican Committee is loosing credibility as a direct result of the chair and vice chair ideals of the “Tea Party” Republicans. They are selling themselves as brave revolutionaries—a heroic band of modern-day colonists who are standing up to the tyranny of an oppressive government. .
    The brave colonists who stood up to the English king in the 1770s were protesting something very specific: Taxation without representation. The “Tea Party” Republicans, and the small minority of voters who support them, are not the victims of taxation without representation.
    Tea Party Republicans are taxed, yes, but they are also very much represented. They have made their arguments to the nation, the state, and now Beaver County. The nation listened and disagreed with them. Actually Tea Party Republicans have hijacked the U.S. political system to advance their own selfish pet cause which isn’t even about debt or government spending but rather their dislike of laws.
    America is a democracy. In democracies, people disagree about issues. They disagree, they make their best arguments, and then they do their jobs and move on. The “Tea Party” Republicans aren’t doing that. They’re disrupting and disgracing the entire country over a single pet cause that America has already voted into law. That’s not heroic. It’s not democratic. And, despite what the “Tea Party” Republicans want you to think, it’s also not patriotic.

  19. AFTER pirate game I decided to stroll over, nice little set up..

    But definitely not open door type thing just republican booth, no democrat booth..
    crowd was sparse besides obvious attendees with in and organisers, few scattered rolled in.

    As a republican though and moderate more on national level and world view. I vote democrat on local occasionally, but lost was true message they didn’t address George David and the women being harassed and criminal investigation of the democrat..

    why? marshall tried ti give him more power be writing legislation THANK GOD other state reps shot it down, Christina meets with the guy? lives in his family property hell his office is owned by the same prick. I voted twice for him didn’t the third and won’t be on fourth despite being friends with his family it’s same old what ruined some democrats have already bought the soul of new ones. it’s sad,

    and locally they try to correlate what is going on with spending across country and WAM money to here bad message this area needs grants and wam spending where antiquated roads and infrastructure how else do you do it.

    Charter schools are bankrupting local school taxpayers on both sides of aisles, message shouldn’t be get involved by running fir office that you can’t win like a pawn in chess game it should be transparency, future jobs, formulate

  20. sorry formulate new funding for cyber and charter schools….

    I’m for wasteful spending to be cut, but was confused nichols was a speaker he gave former democratic chairmen 20 grand raise and promotion yes he voted, created new spot friendship ridge a buddie

    put gag order in sale of the place had directive issued on talking to press and said the bridge magazine was a positive spending??? how many times can you tell me where Brady’s run is,? And activity of friendship ridge and a spot light on useless row office positions, sorry some do good service and workers earn it but it’s useless to advertise it ni different than self promoting PSAs that come from elected state officials

    in closing message should be off local values and down with class cause if it wasn’t for democrat voting only seat we would have is whats by law….. 14th,15th and 47th would still be DEM and what’s going on nationally with things that could change here

    • They welcomed the Philly from Philadelphia asking her….You’re the stranger, ain’tcha? Are you looking for a nice, clean place to stay???? But she responded, Madam, I had a nice clean place to stay… and I left it, to come here!!!!

      In the end, many politicians do hateful things for which people love, and do loveable things for which people hate. They are to be admired for their detestability. Now don’t worry, they may be rancid butter, but on the side of the bread for the people.

      It’s a shame we don’t all possess the positive knowledge of what is right with Republicans and what is wrong with Democrats….The Bible is a book. It’s a good book, but it is not the only book. :insuspense:

  21. The irony of that forum is they said it was regarding transparency of the sale of Friendship Ridge and issues with Sheriff David , neither were addressed. I am a registered Democrat and am very disappointed I gave over an hour of my life listening to the same anti union, anti Obama , anti gun regs , anti affordable care act, bible thumping lunacy , that I can hear from any republican on any given day. I was surprised they didn’t throw in the immorality of LGBT while they were at it. Of course their chosen head lunatic that is currently and regrettably our governor already put that garbage out there .
    I’m sick of all the propaganda and lies. They actually had an attorney give a reason that the courthouse is not open on weekends or after hours is due to a union contract. I would think as an attorney he would of done his homework better.
    Union contract books are negotiated with management personnel , please advise me what day , in what contract period , was working weekends or evenings brought about? MANY union employees work shifts and weekends and do not get time and 1/2. Did parttimers come to mind in this imaginary conversation ? Flexing hours? Or again , was it never addressed but easily blamed on union members?
    Dennis Nicols had much to address with beautifying Beaver storefronts , yet nothing regarding an impoverished Aliquippa,
    Ambridge , Conway etc .. Thought he was a commissioner for ALL areas in the county , , Wrong again!!!
    The only intelligent thing I heard was Christiana speak on TRANSPARENCY of government spending . I had to wait until the very end of the torturous evening for one reasonable glimmer of hope .
    Good Goverment Rally ??? Afraid not .. Just a waste of precious time in my life that I will never get back

    • I once was asked, ever been in love?…..and I responded, only with the sound of my own words, thank Goodness.

      This sums up this thread of comments and Rally for Republicans!
