“NOW, THEREFORE, The President of the United States of America, do (sic) hereby proclaim December 7, 2017, as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. I encourage all Americans to observe this solemn day of remembrance and to honor our military, past and present, with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I urge all Federal agencies and interested organizations, groups, and individuals to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff this December 7 in honor of those American patriots who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor.” – FlagExpress.com

Hey, some people say, “Take away Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and Pennsylvania is Alabama with trees.”

The RWNJ elected public servant “Rep. Daryl Metcalfe has a History of Outbursts, Fighting and Controversies” | Kinda’ like the guy in the running for an elected position in Alabama.

’tis the season: Thefts and possession charges in today’s POLICE LOG at LNP – Always Lancaster |  Someone steals a Jeep (The vehicle was unlocked, and the keys were inside, police said.) – that’s not theft; that’s an invitation and someone stole a VERY EXPENSIVE36-inch strand of lighted garland” valued at $400. Really, that’s expensive garland.

Two letters to the editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster about that RWNJ (who’s wealthy by the way) elected public servant from Nebraska, Senator Chuck Grassley’s irresponsible comment. From a Columbia news, views & reviews piece of earlier his year: “They’re just so out of touch! Elected public servants are not in touch with the citizens they’re supposed to represent. Watched long-time Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley sputter and lie through a town hall meeting on C-SPAN last night. How do these people look into the mirror? How do they look their grand kids in the eyes?”
