Share

We now live in a world where almost anyone and everything can and will be labelled “racist.” Some store owners in Philadelphia are the latest victims of the PC police.

Cindy Bass, a councilwoman from Philadelphia’s 8th District, has filed a bill which would make store owners take down Plexiglas in certain areas of town. According to Bass, having thick, safe Plexiglas up in a store is an insult and “an indignity.”

Essentially, Plexiglass is racist, or you’re a racist if you have Plexiglas installed.

HARRISBURG – State Rep. Aaron Bernstine (R-Beaver/Butler/Lawrence) announced that Slippery Rock University, along with West Chester University in southeastern part of the state, will receive more than $272,000 in funding under the federal Troops to Teachers grant program.

The Troops to Teachers grant program, managed by the Defense Activity for

Why doesn’t Pennsylvania have a gift ban?

Share

“Gift”: Code for Legal Bribe? TAKE ACTION In late 2014 and early 2015, five current and former members of the General Assembly were charged with bribery and other charges related to their acceptance of cash “gifts” from a lobbyist.
