Corbett Lied

GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Guzzardi had his first TV interview this afternoon with KDKA political editor Jon Delano.

The topic concerned the claim that Corbett broke the promise he made in 2010 not to raise taxes.

Delano rather brutally illustrated Guzzardi's claim that he did.


The interview can be seen here with a transcript.

Ike Would Not Let Forget

It  is a matter of history  that  when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General  Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he  ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the  German people from surrounding villages to be ushered  through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this  effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films -  get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

Recently, the UK debated whether to  remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it  'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never  occurred It is not removed as yet.. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It  is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in  Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial  chain, in memory of the, six million Jews, 20 million  Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic  priests Who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated' while many in the world looked the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never  forgets.

To extract a splinter fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water nearly to the brim, and press affected part of hand tightly against mouth of bottle. The suction will pull down the flesh, and steam will soon draw out the splinter.

Or so advised the Imperial Tobacco Co. circa 1910 on one of its cigarette cards.

Ignoring Minority Rights Means Confrontation

By David French

I deeply respect the rule of law. As an attorney who practices in federal courts across the nation, I respect the rulings of those courts (indeed, much of my career is spent securing rulings from federal courts to protect individual liberties) and — having reviewed the pleadings in Bundy’s case — I do not fault the courts’ orders. John Hinderaker is right , “Legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on.”
 
But, as Hinderaker notes, that’s not the end of the story. I’d urge you to read Hinderaker’s entire analysis and don’t want to repeat it here. Instead, let me back up a bit and place the Bundy controversy in the larger context of America’s urban/rural divide and the resulting polarization of the increasing powerlessness of rural America.

On March 21, the Wall Street Journal published a prescient piece highlighting geography rather than ideology as a key driver in America’s growing partisan divisions.
 
Yes, there are key differences in ideology, but those ideological divisions are nurtured and cultivated according to where we live. When I lived in Midtown, Manhattan, or Center City, Philadelphia, the culture was dramatically different from our current home base in Maury County, Tennessee. And the differences were not just confined to culture, but also included perceived political and economic interests.
 
While rural America literally sustains life for urban America, many urbanites dislike large-scale farming (this parody  is worth seeing), would like to see the rest of the country essentially transformed into a nature preserve, and argue that to the extent land is “used,” it should be used for selectively-defined “renewable” purposes, like solar energy or wind farms. The result — when urban regions become dominant — has been amply chronicled by Victor Davis Hanson and many others: rural regions increasingly serve urban ones and do so under comprehensive urban regulatory schemes that disrupt lives, destroy livelihoods, and lead to widespread frustration and despair.
 
And all of it is legal.
 
As government grows ever-larger, majority rule becomes more consequential for minority populations. The regulatory state grows, and rural Americans are left with little recourse. The courts won’t overturn regulatory actions absent a clearly-identified liberty interest (with the law granting wide discretion to federal agencies), in many states legislatures are dominated by urban voting blocs, and — particularly in the West — massive federal ownership of land means the voice of the local farmer or landowner is diluted into meaninglessness within the larger national debate.
 
With few options left within conventional politics, rural Americans are beginning to contemplate more dramatic measures, such as the state secession movements  building in Colorado, Maryland, California, and elsewhere. The more viable state secession movements aim to limit urban control by literally removing rural counties from their states and forming new states around geographic regions of common interests.
 
But until there’s a long-term solution, we may very well see more Bundy Ranch moments, where individual Americans (and their allies) simply refuse to consent to laws that destroy their way of life for the sake of regulations that provide no perceivable benefit to others. (I can only imagine my frustration if I had to end a more-than-century-old family lifestyle, arguably for the sake of a turtle that no one will see).
 
The long-term solution is simple to conceptualize but difficult to accomplish: de-escalate the stakes of our political disputes by limiting the power of government over American lives. Americans have always had profound differences, and we live together with those differences when victory for one side doesn’t mean inflicting real harm on the losers. But when victory for one side means the end of a way of life for the losers, instability can and will result.
 
I hope and pray that the dangerous standoff at Bundy Ranch was an aberration and not a harbinger, but until we can limit government’s power, I fear that respect for law will increasingly give way to contempt for the lawmakers.

David French originally published this at National Review.

Pennsylvania Stops Manufacturing Job Slide

Pennsylvania added 1,300 manufacturing jobs in March reversing a four-month slide, the state Department of Labor and Industry reported April 18.

"We wish we were seeing more robust growth but we'll take that for now," said David N. Taylor, executive director of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers' Association in Harrisburg.

The state had 560,700 persons employed in the sector as of last month. Despite uptick, that is still 4,100 jobs less than in March 2013.

Taylor said more jobs would have been added had it not been for concern over the cost of the Affordable Care Act and new federal environmental regulations.

Michael Smeltzer, executive director of the York-based Manufacturers' Association said companies are turning to staffing agencies for temporary workers rather than hiring full-time.

While the trade, transportation and utilities sector and other services sector also grew, 1,700 and 1,200 jobs respectively, jobs were down by 5,000 in professional services, 2,200 in financial activities and 2,000 in education and health services.

Answer to yesterday's puzzle: The guns that thundered off Manila and Santiago left us echoes of glory, but they also left us a legacy of duty. If we drove out a medieval tyranny only to make room for savage anarchy we had better not have begun the task at all.
