Letter Writer warns of PA Senate Bills 172 and 251

Share

To All Pennsylvania Drivers:

This letter is a speed limit tutorial.

Tell your Senator and Representative to VOTE NO on PA Senate Bill 172, authorizing speed cameras in work zones and VOTE NO on PA Senate Bill 251, giving RADAR to municipal police departments.

The object of speed cameras and RADAR is not the facilitation of safe, efficient travel but rather the issuance of as many tickets as possible.

First, officials impose deliberately unrealistic, under-posted speed limits on most roads in order to frustrate and criminalize virtually all drivers all the time. To make driving an unpleasant, slow-motion grind.

The law in Pennsylvania requires that posted speed limits be set according to something called the “85th percentile” standard. This is a traffic safety

The News Media Past and Present

Share

 

By Jerold Levine

Many people today are objecting to how the American news media has become partisan, using phrases like “we’ve never seen” or “never before.” The “we’ve never seen” is true. The “never before” is inaccurate, and a result of historical myopia. Like the young who, in each generation, think that they are the first to have discovered sex, we can misperceive that the past extends only as far back as we can remember. Not only has America seen the kind of rabid media partisanship we have today, it has in fact been the norm for most of our history.

Newspaper articles from the Revolution through the early twentieth century disclose the hyper-partisanship of the press. As example, Founding Fathers accused

Pennsylvania Liberty Alliance President Answers Commonwealth Foundation Report

PA Liberty Alliance President, Ron Boltz answers Commonwealth Foundation.

Jennifer,

I understand the “cheer leading” aspect of this email, and I don’t fault your organization for making a loss look like a win. Indeed, I believe running this vote was a “win” as well, but probably for different reasons. I don’t expect victories every time and I’m glad this vote took place.

That being said, what is frustrating to those of us who pay close attention and are heavily involved in politics is the continued glorification by CF of House leadership. With a failure to get 26 “republicans” to vote for such a simple concept (and word has it many more were prepared to vote “no” to protect the unions if need be

Letter Writer opposes Local Police Radar

Share

To LVC Editor,

Dear Pennsylvania Representatives and Concerned Drivers:

By any measure of what is right, SB 251, arming municipal police with RADAR guns, should be voted down.

Despite 30 years of technological innovations, radar still suffers from the same reliability and performance issues that have made it unacceptable as evidence in a court of law. A research study(http://www.motorists.org/other/Radar_Test_Presentation.pdf) states that radar cannot meet the requirements of the Daubert test, which is a set of standards trial judges use to determine whether or not expert testimony is based on valid scientific reasoning and methodology.

One of radar’s biggest downfalls: it can’t distinguish one vehicle from another.

In areas with correctly set 85th percentile* posted speed limits, you

Letter Writer Highlights–Are We Drifting Away?

Share

Dear Editor,

There is no truth to this—so you will say—if in fact you do not believe in God, Jesus Christ and his rule book the Bible. But and So—with that said —-let me also inject this —-There is no Neutrality in what your basic Presuppositions are and what your Worldview is—-The how you see things and the belief you hold are fixed—-these fixations guiding your worldview—–will be truths you believe to be true. With that said—-to the point; Sinful man cannot reason, nor logically unite perception with what is perceived in the reality of what is scriptural truth. This reasoning with its logic—-is deeply corrupted through Adam’s Sin/fall and is known as the—Noetic Effect of Sin. (Matthew 13:13 “…because they seeing, see
