Tonight’s Parade Night!

And here’s Parade information from the Columbia Police Department.

Here’s something you don’t see every day | “Police: West Hempfield Township man paid teen to cut, burn him for sexual pleasure” – Lancaster Online

Here’s something we’re seeing almost every day | GOP gators in the swamp vote to rip regular Americans as Pence votes as expected and with the “party of the rich people” to disallow class action lawsuits against banks. – The Los Angeles Times

hospital perforrmance report“A performance report of Pennsylvania hospitals in Southeastern PA shows significant statewide decreases in hospital mortality and readmission rates. Released yesterday by the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council (PHC4), the annual report, known as the Hospital Performance Report, includes hospital-specific mortality and readmission ratings as well as volume of cases and hospital charges for patients discharged from Pennsylvania’s general acute care hospitals between October 1, 2015 and September 30, 2016 (federal fiscal year [FFY] 2016). Statewide and regional trends were also examined.” An LNP – Always Lancaster article states the report ” … found that Lancaster County hospitals are generally meeting the council’s expectations on death and readmission rates with a few exceptions.”

Just imagine if citizens built their income budgets based on credit cards and gambling! | That’s what your Pennsylvania elected public servants are doing. – The Morning Call

For Trump, I would simply take a knee. – The last sentence in a letter-to-the-editor written by a Columbian in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster. The letter writer condemns the “rich draft dodger” and applauds Senator John McCain.

Another letter-to-the-editor condemns a Pennsylvania Senate Resolution which reaffirms ” …  the historical and symbolic significance of the flag and national anthem of the United States of America; referencing federally prescribed standards for conduct during a rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed; and expressing the prevailing sentiment of the Senate of Pennsylvania.”

Lancaster County’s Scott Martin’s one of the Pennsylvania “swamp creatures” who introduced this piece of redundant governance. Is this all Pennsylvania’s “elected public servants” have to do: “Reaffirm the historical and symbolic significance of the flag and national anthem of the United States of America?”

Shouldn’t the nation’s largest and second-highest paid legislature have more important tasks to accomplish? NOTE: Actually New Hampshire has more state representatives, but they get paid $200 a year and they get no per diem perks.
