FIRST HE DISHONORS US, THEN HE’LL DISARM US – LVTP 2nd Amendment Newsletter

Share

A group of retired Pennsylvania State Police troopers are among the most visible opponents of acting state police commissioner Col. Marcus Brown, who is Gov. Tom Wolf’s nominee for state police commissioner, according to an article on www.pennlive.com.Retired troopers, Republican leaders and the union representing state troopers are all telling Wolf, a Democrat who’s staunchly pro-union and anti-gun, to drop his call for Brown’s nomination. Much of the concern over Wolf’s bad choice was driven by Brown’s bad decision to wear the Pennsylvania State Troopers gray uniform without ever serving in the department, or attending the State Police Academy. Retired troopers have denounced Brown for his decision, while Facebookand Twitter pages have been created to draw attention to Brown’s decision to wear the uniform,according to

Government Unions

Government Unions

Dear CF Friend,

Government unions love to present themselves as champions of democracy.But their walk is far different from their talk.

Last week, National Review Online published a commentary by CF’s James Paul explaining how big city teachers’ unions are often some of the most undemocratic special interests in public life.

Consider: the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (which was recently sued for pulling “ghost teachers” out of the classroom to do union work while on the public payroll) has not allowed teachers to vote on whether they want union representation in 50 years!

In fact, only one Philadelphia School District employee remains, a librarian, who participated in the last such election in 1965.

House Co-Sponsorship Memoranda

MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 30, 2015 12:42 PM

From: Representative Russ Diamond

To: All House members

Subject:Property Tax Elimination

In the near future, I plan to introduce a joint resolution to place a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot so voters can decide whether to eliminate all property taxes in the Commonwealth by a date certain.Acquiring, possessing and defending property are declared as Inherent Rights of Mankind in Article I Section 1 of Pennsylvania’s Constitution. That declaration was made by contemporaries of the authors of the Declaration of Independence, which cemented the idea that governments are created among men to secure such rights.Currently, these rights are being abrogated by circumstances within the Commonwealth and its political subdivisions,

Gov. Wolf’s Blatant Misuse of Power

Share

By State Representative Daryl Metcalfe

The new governor is off to a tumultuous start as the chief executive of Pennsylvania. It seems that he and other top Democrat officials believe they can display the same disrespect for the people and our state Constitution as the president has through his actions. Since the governor was sworn into office and took the oath to uphold and defend the same constitution that I did, he has used the pen and phone aggressively to advance his liberal agenda.First, let me explain whom I am referring to as “other top Democrat officials.” The Democrat Attorney General Kane has demonstrated a pattern of abuse since taking office. The most recent grand jury report recommending multiple charges against her is still a

It’s for the Children (Yeah, Right)

Share

How often do you hear school teachers saying, we do it for the children? It seems so often one may start to believe them. That is until you see the union teachers’ actions that show so blatantly that whenever teachers bring out the old worn out “it’s for the children” statement you should beware and look for the actions before you believe them.

Here’s their Mission Statement

The Steel Valley School District is rich in cultural diversity and unique in its heritage. The mission of the Steel Valley School District is for the school, home and community to collaborate to enable students to achieve academic standards, to encourage independent thinking and to become responsible citizens.

Keep this mission statement in mind

Look Out Taxpayers, there’s a Public Pension Crisis in Pennsylvania and the Government wants you to fix it!

Share

This topic was discussed in previous articles and it is the most critical Pennsylvania government financial crisis. This crisis will have the most impact to every private sector taxpayer in every sense.

Remember PA companies like; Bethlehem steel, RCA and really big US companies like GM. Here’s the typical reason given why these companies went bankrupt. I’ll use an excerpt from The Daily News and a major reason that has led to many a companies demise.

Staggering legacy costs General Motors is straddled with the ‘legacy costs’ of providing healthcare and pensions to a host of retired workers, which cost GM millions of dollars every single year.

“When GM agreed to them, the company was lauded as an example of good corporate governance.

Legislation would broaden crimes for which public officials forfeit state pensions

Share

By Brad Bumsted at triblive.com

HARRISBURG — Legislation to prevent public officials convicted of crimes such as conflict of interest from collecting state pensions appears headed for consideration by the House Judiciary Committee, the bill’s sponsor said Friday.

The bill by Rep. Scott Petri, R-Bucks County, would expand the definition of crimes that require automatic pension forfeiture for elected officials and public employees under a law last amended about three decades ago, he said.

Petri, chairman of the House Ethics Committee, has several versions of the bill but said one likely to move forward adds felonies related to one’s office or public position. They would be added to the crimes covered, he said.
