Sunday’s news items, part 2 [“the wrath of God”; dichotomy; troughs, the swamp & more] – 2/24/2019

Casting a wider net; something to consider | West Hempfield Township is an equal employment opportunity employer and it casts a wider net when hiring. In an article in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster, West Hempfield Police Department’s chief, Mark Pugliese, is the subject of an article about his impending retirement. “Township officials began searching for Pugliese’s successor in November through the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association, Township Manager Andrew Stern said.”

Dichotomy | It’s interesting that Columbia Borough bars employment discrimination in some areas yet has shown reticence in casting wide nets when it has employment opportunities.

  1. It’s time for the 86-year-old California Senator Dianne Feinstein to retire. She is against single payer healthcare, and after learning of how she acted with these kids, it is past time she removes herself from public office. (I wish to say that I am certainly not a Republican and do not make this statement to deprive the California Democrats from a Senate seat. Certainly, the Democrats can find and elect a better person for the job.)

  2. No arguments here; she’s had too many years “troughing.”

    Why can’t we find people like Cincinnatus?

    “Who he?” some may say. This abbreviated narrative is from the Encyclopaedia Brittanica Website:

    “Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, (born 519? BCE), Roman statesman who gained fame for his selfless devotion to the republic in times of crisis and for giving up the reins of power when the crisis was over.

    Let’s bring on TERM LIMITS.

  3. That’s a good question. I wonder, and probably could safely bet, that the citizens of Cincinnati, Ohio, have no clue who Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus was, nor would they know what he did.

    You can also safely bet that neither Feinstein nor Trump would ever consider giving up the reins of power when the crisis is over.

    TERM LIMITS are a must. These good old boys and girls who remain in office for 25 – 60 years must get the hell out and retire to their funny farms.
