Poverty, Despair, and Big Government

Share

by Michael D. Tanner at National Review

Let’s get this out of the way right at the start: There is no excuse — no acceptable reason — for the rioting in Baltimore this week. But, that said, there are lessons to be learned about the failures of government and how those failures can create a climate of anger and frustration that just awaits a spark to ignite the flames of violence and destruction.

That spark in this case was the still-unexplained death of Freddie Gray in police custody, but the powder keg was put in place by decades of big-government liberalism, both in the city of Baltimore and in the state of Maryland.

For example, Maryland has one of the most generous welfare systems in

Why does the left hate entry-level jobs?

Why does the left hate entry-level jobs?

That’s what many former fast food workers must be asking themselves after massive increases in the minimum wage in places like Seattle, Washington are being blamed for a wave of restaurant closures. Closures that deprive entry-level workers an opportunity to gain the work skill sets needed for the rest of their lives.

Fully one-third of all Americans in the workforce got their start in the restaurant industry, including this author, who proudly remembers working at Carl’s Jr. in Corona, California for minimum wage while attending Riverside City College. The discipline to keep a schedule, show up on time, work hard, and pay some bills

Baltimore: A Lesson in Why Robin Hood–ism Hurts the Poor

Share

by Stephen J. K. Walters at National Review

The morning after the Baltimore protests first turned violent and destructive, USA Today carried a front-page photo well worth a thousand words. With a burning car and police van in the background, a looter carried away his prizes: two cans of Pringles, a gallon of iced tea, and a bundle of diapers. So much destruction, such puny rewards.

This plundering was widely — though not universally — condemned. A few radical-splained that a riot is the language of the unheard, the voice of the voiceless, yadda, yadda, yadda. The more mainstream talking point was that the rioting was a “distraction” from the narrative that the Left is trying to build out of the death of

The Commonwealth Foundation’s Weekly Update

Share

Dear CF Friend,I wanted to let you know about two important victories today for the citizens and taxpayers of Pennsylvania:

1. Two labor transparency bills were passed out of Senate Appropriations and are now ready for the Senate’s full consideration.

Two bills by Sens. Folmer and Stefano, respectively, aim to shed some much-needed light on the public-union collective bargaining process, and allow taxpayers to get informed about the contracts paid for by their tax dollars. Gov. Wolf’s spokesperson has already indicated that the Governor will consider signing these bills.

2. Two important educational freedom bills passed out of House committee.

HB 805, sponsored by state Rep. Stephen Bloom would end seniority-based layoffs in Pennsylvania public schools, focusing on performance and effectiveness instead. Rep. Jim

Who are the Tax-Hikers (Lehigh County)?

Share

by Joe Hilliard at Leadership for Liberty

Many school board elections are decided in the primary cycle since most candidates can “cross-file” which means they can enter the race as both a Democrat and a Republican candidate. The logic is that school board directors are supposed to be non-partisan.

However, party identification is not the real issue. The real issue is to identify who are the “Tax-Hikers” in your school district? Normally, many think Tax-Hikers are only Democrats while Republicans fight proposed tax increases. The sad reality is that Tax-Hikers exist in both political parties in our school districts.

The list shows all the school directors in Lehigh County and how they voted for the last two budgets. Blue means the Director has

State Representative Ryan Mackenzie endorses Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli for E.P. School Board

Share

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to endorse Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli in the race for the East Penn School Board to be held on Primary Election Day – May 19, 2015.

Knowing both Carol and Chris, I can personally attest to the great knowledge and passion they would bring to the school board. They are also both very active involved in the community and have an understanding of the issues facing public education.

If elected, Carol and Chris would serve to strengthen education and protect taxpayers. We need people like them to stand up for families and our community on the East Penn School Board.

Please consider voting for Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli on Tuesday, May 19th!

Sincerely, Ryan

Can School Board’s do Anything About Common Core?

Share

The short answer is a robust YES! This question gets centered on the East Penn School Board race. In the May Primary, conservative candidates Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli made a statement in their campaign literature that they wanted to oppose Common core and return to local control. The Teacher’s Union backed slate and their political operatives immediately jumped on this and continue to this day. The union operatives claim that Allen and Donatelli are naïve in that school board’s must follow the mandates of the state and federal governments. While it is true that Pennsylvania has adopted Common Core and renamed it Pennsylvania Core Standards, there are many ways to blunt the negative impacts of this program and
