I recently was admitted to Tower Health in Pottstown with severe covid and double pneumonia. The staff on the third floor were the best I could have asked for. So kind and compassionate. They were always asking if I needed anything at all. God Bless every one of you.
Totally agree about the trash in Lower Pottsgrove. Ordinance says no trash by the curb until 5 pm. Trash is out early Sunday morning. It makes the township on a Sunday look terrible all day long when many people have get-togethers, picnics and parties. Already called the township about it. Seems that the code enforcer does not work on a Sunday. Called for other code violations as well. Seems he does not want to do his job.
There’s more information on Hunter Biden and the deal with China worth millions of dollars. The question, how could he do it without the help of his father? Remember. when asked about other dealings, he said the old man gets some of the money. The FBI should stop playing politics and do their job. They look bad enough for helping the Democratic party with lies about President Trump which they never verified.
Thank you President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden for working soup kitchens for Thanksgiving. You’re setting a good example. Keep the good work up.
To Joe Biden and his troop of clowns — “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Einstein. It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats … yet they are still poor. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
I feel very disappointed with people. I myself just shrug my shoulders, mandates are illegal but are still being mandated, masks don’t work are hurting our children but are still required. I hope one day our kids are able to have kids or don’t get a serious illness of the heart from this poison. The government is doing a great job at fear. This world is going to hell in a handbasket and there’s nothing I can do about it!
We need to find some brilliant minds that will find a fair, legal, and constitutional method of preventing a corporation from passing to its customers a fine, levy, or tax intended for the company alone. If I recall correctly (I’m sure someone will correct me, if not), PECO claimed a nuclear facility was worthless for tax purposes, but they needed to pass $8 billion for “stranded” costs to customers. A judge said, “OK!”
To the chagrin of the wealthy, Trump imposed a $10,000 cap on state and local taxes(SALT) that could be deducted on federal tax returns. In Build Back Better legislation, Reps. Dean & Houlahan expanded the cap to $72,000 with an eventual rise to $80,000. The cost? $285 billion, 85% of which will benefit the top 5% of income earners. Other beneficiaries? States, largely Democrat, with high SALT e.g. CA & NY.
I am thankful that Drumph and his mean tweets are gone. Joe Biden has done so much for us with raging inflation, high fuel prices, woke military, big pharma lies, losing your job for my body my choice, border chaos, defund the police, critical race theory in schools, DOJ targeting parents as “domestic terrorists”, males in female locker rooms and Afghanistan disaster. Then Drumph had the audacity to meet with that murderer, Kyle Rittenhouse.

I saw a lot of recent radical republican complaints about FBI investigating violent threats from parents toward school boards. If you want to understand it better take a listen to “The School Board Wars” Podcast from the NY times chronicling the Central Bucks School-board de-evolution. As a bonus, you will get to hear right-wing Soros Paul Martino explain how he bought local school boards. For the Older sound offers, ask your kids/grandkids how to download a podcast.
On Sunday, a motorist in Wisconsin drove at high speed into a parade crowd, injuring or killing dozens. As a result of this crime, and in accordance with recent gun control efforts, it is clear that all American vehicles capable of speeds over 15 miles per hour must be confiscated, and sales of these vehicles made a federal crime. Thanks to anti-Second Amendment activists for demonstrating the way forward on this matter.
Someone should explain to Marjorie Taylor Greene what infrastructure is. Whenever she doesn’t understand something, instead of educating herself, she attacks it. She thinks it makes her look like she knows what she’s talking about. Clearly, she’s not smart enough to be holding that job. Maybe that’s why she spends her time harassing people instead of trying to make our country better. I can’t recall anything worthwhile she’s done.
Response for 11/17. Patriot45, S.S. insolvency, just raise the ceiling on who contributes to $250,000 a year, problem solved for 100 years. Missy Miss, Don the Con is a racist, remember the “Shithole Country” remark? Boyertown Bob, an old man farted, so what. Remember Dumb Donnie dissing the Queen a couple of times. Mendacious D. So true, my fellow Troll. M. Furlong, Covid in the U.K., I researched and can’t confirm that statement as truth.
Critical Race Theory: Taught in law schools, explaining how social biases against minorities have been institutionalized in things like “redlining” or disparate prison sentences for crack versus cocaine. It is not taught in elementary or high schools. History is. Do you on the right feel that U.S. history is free of racism, and it should never be mentioned? Are you afraid little Johnny will ask, “Daddy, are you a racist?”
It’s been close to a year since Trump left the White House. I am independent, so I can be critical of both parties. I think history will remember Trump as the worst president in history. He has divided our country like never before. His constant lying will also put him in a special category. As I have said before I am not thrilled with Biden, but Trump had to go.
State Farm’s handling of Arron Rodgers, see what happens if you do the same thing with a claim.

I see a lib suggests that Republicans don’t have ideas. Dems certainly have ideas. Mitch McConnell is simply keeping the nation from self-destruction. I am sorry. In my lifetime I have seen democrat ideas lower the power and prestige of the US economy and quality of life. Do you like Democrats? See the magic they wrought in Norristown, Reading, Philadelphia, Camden, Atlantic City, Trenton, Chicago, L.A., Baltimore. Dem. Ideas = chaos, destruction, Debasement.

President Biden should reinstate Trump’s Remain-in-Mexico policy as ordered by a federal judge. The policy requires all asylum seekers at the Southern border to remain in Mexico until a judge can review their petition. It was extremely effective until it was improperly rescinded earlier this year. Biden is currently releasing these asylum seekers into the country with only a promise to appear at their hearing, and 90% never appear!
If you think Kyle Rittenhouse is guilty of anything other than self-defense, it’s time you found another news source.
I recently found out that you can buy a birthday cake any time you like and enjoy it all by yourself. Nobody checks!
