LVC note: Without School Property Tax Elimination- You Really Never Own Your Home! Hello,

“Where is Kim Ward?” I heard over and over Thursday night at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center. Where is she hiding is more like it!

The misinformation and propaganda keeps on coming from Ward’s ivory tower. However, this time she didn’t just send spies…she sent her misinformed minions! The leader even said she was an AFP regional rep…I thought AFP was neutral on 76?

You have to laugh though, these “protesters” had no idea what was in the PTIA 76. After Ron Boltz and Jim Rodkey educated a few of them outside, you should have seen the steam coming from the lead, self-proclaimed, AFP troll!

How are working Americans supposed to pay for a carbon tax?

Share

 

By Dustin Howard at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

In the State of the Union Address last month, President Obama renewed his call for a carbon tax. He called to “change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers, and the earth.” The President’s proposals are purportedly advanced in the name of the people, but what do the people think?

About a month ago, a poll was conducted by YouGov to ask the world about their concern about climate change. Nine percent of Americans expressed they were concerned. Another poll conducted in November by Fox News found the number

Tom Wolf’s budget cut of $3 billion in state education funding, the administration has sent a school closing checklist to help schools shut their doors. That action is completely unnecessary as the governor has it within his power to ensure that schools are funded and stay open.When the General Assembly sent a budget to the governor’s desk in December, schools were set to receive a historic level of state aid, until the governor vetoed several education line items, including half of the allocation schools

The Obama administration isn’t prepared for a revived wave of unaccompanied children crossing illegally into the United States, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Tuesday.

In opening remarks before a Judiciary Committee hearing, Grassley criticized the White House for “shirking responsibility” while the influx of Central American children fleeing across the U.S.-Mexico border threatens to outpace 2014’s crisis.

The Economics of “Free Stuff”

Share

By — Jonathan Newman at Mises Daily

 

The perennial promises of free stuff from political candidates are front and center again now that we are ensnared in another US election cycle. The knee-jerk response from some economists and libertarians is “TANSTAAFL!” And of course it’s true that There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch, because somebody must bear the costs of the supposedly “free” stuff. Nothing is free because every action has an opportunity cost.

Especially when the government is involved in doling out the gifts, all it means is that it was bought with money taken from others. Or, sometimes, the money is taken from the person receiving the gift, who thinks he’s gotten

The Commonwealth Foundation’s Weekly Update

Dear CF Friend,

Allentown School District is in dire financial condition. Hundreds of teachers have been laid off in recent years. Despite this, the union president manages to pull a full-time teacher’s salary and benefits from the district payroll without teaching one minute in the classroom.

For years, Allentown taxpayers have funded salary and benefits for a “ghost teacher” who is on district payroll but actually works full-time for the local teachers’ union. Since 2000, the cost to taxpayers has been more than $1.3 million.

Last week, taxpayers Scott Armstrong and Steven Ramos filed a lawsuit with help from the Fairness Center to end this
