Thursday’s news items, part 2 [those dirty bastards; civic duty; no socialism & more] – 3/5/2020

… those dirty bastards | Those are the words of someone we know uttered whenever yet another illicit action by state and local elected public servants have been discovered having committed flagrant acts of “crime” and “treason against the people they are elected to serve. These “effing” hogs at the trough have done it again. This is the lead sentence of today’s LNP – Always Lancaster page one article:
