Today’s news … Sunday, March 6, 2016

today’s news and information gleanings from here and there!

Quote for today … “ … keep your head down and your mouth shut.” – Quote from this article about the “dysfunctional” PA State Police academy. – Pennlive

Second Quote for today … “It’s a country of haves and have-nots, and you’re starting to see some of that truth because of the increasing trends of poverty.” – Columbia Borough School District’s interim superintendent commenting in an LNP – Always Lancaster article about the increase of students from low-income family units across the county.

Third Quote for today … “Damn… everyone is getting pulled over and cited for driving without a license…. be careful out there!” – Columbia Police Department facebook page. We applaud the good work on enforcement, Columbia PD!

  • BUT … this is not listed at the facebook page nor the CRIME WATCH page: “My neighbor had his 16 foot prowler camper stolen from his back yard last nighr. If anyone knows anything about this please call the Columbia police. He is a very nice older man who doesn’t deserve this.” – What’s Happening in Columbia facebook page

One of the citations food serving facility inspections that turns up that doesn’t make sense: “The Person in Charge does not have adequate knowledge of food safety in this food facility as evidenced by this non-compliant inspection.”

  • Recent food serving establishments inspections in Lancaster County – Lancaster Online
  • Recent food serving establishments inspections in York County – The York Dispatch
  • … except those in Columbia – Columbia persists in having its own inspection system with its own forms and inspection items – rather than the one used statewide.

teardrop

  • Seems the entire Perspective section in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster is about Donald Trump. Curiously, the former Lancaster County Republican chairwoman and lots of GOP “establishments” are sounding a lot like the leadership of the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese: this is an anomaly; this is not who we are. Trump is not what the Republican Party is all about. Really, denial is not a great policy and maybe, just maybe, it’s time for each of these “out-of-step” entities to reassess and redefine what they stand for.
  1. Senator Pat Toomey, don’t yield to the liberals who are seeking signatures for you to bring to the senate floor the nomination for Supreme Court Judge. Liberals have a very short memory, in 2006 then senators, Obama and Clinton tried to filibuster judge Alito in 2006.
    Stick with you decision Senator Toomey, you have support, ignore the liberals!!!!!

  2. http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/reference/nominations/Nominations.htm

    Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution provides that the president “shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint … judges of the Supreme Court.”

    It could not be simpler. The president nominates someone. If the Senate gives its advice and consent, then the president can appoint him. But nowhere does the Constitution say that the Senate is required to act on the president’s nominations. The Framers certainly didn’t understand the Senate to bear such an obligation. And the Framers who drafted that document certainly didn’t say that the Senate bore such an obligation. – http://www.weeklystandard.com/the-constitution-does-not-require-the-senate-to-vote-on-a-nomination/article/2001087

  3. The Senate does not have to nominate which is they way it should be, my previous comments were a resistance to the left wing liberals who one time again decide to “protest” against anyone who opposes their warped views.

  4. Understand that perspective, but in our opinion both of the extreme positions of both primary parties serve no real purpose if only to reach their ultimate goals.

    We found this article interesting: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/431315/supreme-court-appointments-political-exactly-founders-intended

    The highest court in the land needs to be “fully staffed,” we think. Political infighting be damned.
