'The Hunger Games' Earns $155M at Weekend Box Office

BoxOfficeMojo.com estimates "The Hunger Games" has earned $155 million this weekend, easily taking the No. 1 spot at the box office. Since its March 23 opening with record-breaking midnight showings, "Hunger Games" has earned an astounding $215 million.

The film should easily top $300 million to become one of the biggest box-office hits of all time. Can you say next big franchi$e?

From Ray Subers analysis:
The odds were definitely in The Hunger Games favor this weekend: the big screen adaptation of the immensely popular young adult novel opened to an enormous estimated $155 million, which ranks third all-time behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169.2 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.4 million). Remarkably, it debuted above all of the Twilight movies, and it also topped Alice in Wonderland ($116.1 million) for highest debut ever for a non-sequel.
Among all the impressive Hunger Games statistics, two lesser-discussed ones are worth highlighting. First, the movie had an incredible hold on Saturday—it only fell 25 percent to $51 million, which ranks second all-time behind Spider-Man 3 ($51.3 million). This suggests that demand for The Hunger Games exists across a wide array of moviegoers, and isn't just rooted in the type of rabid fans that drove the front-loaded openings for recent Harry Potter and Twilight movies.

Pennsylvania Voter Registration Deadline is March 24

With the race for the Republican presidential nomination dragging on, Pennsylvania voters may actually get a say on who will be the party nominee.

That did not appear to be the case earlier this year with so many states voting ahead of Pennsylvania. But the April 24 Pennsylvania primary just might matter for a change.

In order to have a say, you have to be a registered voter. The deadline to register is fast approaching.

Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele reminds Pennsylvanians that Monday, March 26, is the last day to register to vote for the primary election.

In addition to the presidential race, voters will also help pick party nominees for U.S. Senate, state attorney general, auditor general and treasurer, as well as U.S. House of Representatives, state House and Senate, and delegates to the Republican and Democratic national conventions.

“There are many resources available to help citizens register and vote in these important contests,” Aichele said in a press release. “Voters can visit www.VotesPA.com to check their registration status, download a voter registration form and find information on their polling place.”

Applications from Pennsylvanians registering for the first time, changing their address or changing their party affiliation must be postmarked or delivered to the applicant’s county board of elections by the close of business on Monday, March 26.

Another change coming this year is the recently signed Voter ID law.

While a photo ID will not be required to vote in the primary, some counties will be doing test runs and will ask voter to produce a photo ID. All voters in the fall general election will be required to show a photo ID.

Information on the voter ID law is available at www.VotesPA.com or by calling 877-VOTESPA.

For more information on voter registration, call the Department of State’s toll-free hot line at 877-VOTESPA, 877-868-3772, or visit www.VotesPA.com

Obama silent on call to destroy churches

From an editorial in The Washington Times:
If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening.

How the mighty have fallen in Pennsylvania

Interesting article by Robert Swift in the Citizens Voice newspaper about the downfall of some of the most powerful politicians in Pennsylvania since the ill-fated middle-of-the-night pay raise vote of July 2005.

From Swift's article:
Fate has turned sharply against a group of state legislative leaders who were all riding high seven years ago when they engineered a pay raise for themselves and their rank-and-file colleagues.

Five legislative leaders in power in 2005 have since been convicted or pleaded guilty to corruption charges involving misuse of taxpayer dollars.

PA Gov. Tom Corbett Signs Voter ID Bill



Pennsylvania now has one of the toughest voter ID laws in the country.

"I am signing this bill because it protects a sacred principle, one shared by every citizen of this nation. That principle is: one person, one vote,'' Corbett said after signing the bill at 6 p.m. Wednesday, shortly after the state House passed it. "It sets a simple and clear standard to protect the integrity of our elections.''

The law goes into effect immediately, but the photo ID will not be required for the primary election next month. Voters will need a photo ID for November's general election.

Let's see how quickly Obama Attorney General Eric Holder pounces on the Keystone State's efforts to prevent voter fraud, which is the mainstay of the Democratic Party.

Pam Biondi: Government Must Be Accountable to the People

Throughout my nearly two decades in public service, I have been committed to transparency and open government. I fully believe that in order for government to run properly, it needs to be held accountable by the people. In fact, the Florida Constitution, which sets forth our rights as citizens of this great state, provides that the public has the right to know how government officials spend taxpayer dollars and make the decisions affecting their lives.

Sunshine Week is an excellent way not only to inform the public on the importance of open government, but also to let them know about their rights under Florida’s Government-in-the-Sunshine law.

The benefits of open government are frequently acknowledged -- transparency promotes accountability, aids the search for truth, and fosters consistency and fairness in governmental decision making. Fortunately, though, Florida’s laws do not require that open government be justified by reference to these desirable consequences. We live in a state that values open government for its own sake, and for that we should all be thankful.

According to the Florida Supreme Court, a public record includes all materials made or received by an agency in connection with official business which are used to perpetuate, communicate or formalize knowledge. Florida leads the nation in providing public access to government meetings and records, and transparency and open government have always been a priority in my office as we assist with public records requests every day.

Making a public records request is easy, and it can be done over the phone, through email, letter, or in-person. If a governmental agency does not comply with the Government-in-the-Sunshine law, the local state attorney has the authority to prosecute.

The people of Florida have elected me to protect their rights, and I will continue to protect those rights. The Attorney General’s Office houses Open Government, and we view transparency and open government as a top priority.

Pam Biondi is the Florida Attorney General

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum will address the 2012 Pennsylvania Leadership Conference on Saturday, March 24, in Camp Hill, Pa.

The Pennsylvania Leadership Conference will be held over a two-day period, March 23-24 at the Radisson Penn Harris Convention Center in Camp Hill.

Santorum is the latest addition to a growing program of activities planned for conference, according to organizer Lowman Henry.

From a press released issued by Henry:

This year's keynote address will be delivered by Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume. Also scheduled to speak are former Presidential candidate Herman Cain, film producer Ann McElhinney, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, Lt. Governor Jim Cawley, Grover Norquist from Americans for Tax Reform and Human Events White House correspondent and political editor John Gizzi. Candidates for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senator will debate at the conference luncheon on Saturday, March 24th.

Henry said there is also a good chance Newt Gingrich will attend the event.

'A New Era of Transparency'

Nat Hentoff: Your doctor could be Obama

Columnist Nat Hentoff has broken ranks with his liberal colleagues to warn Americans of the dangers of Obamacare.

Hentoff writes: "Starting in July 2014, if Barack Obama is still president, a 15-member board that he selects with Senate confirmation -- the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) -- will be in charge of deciding when to reduce government spending per capita (for each person) on health care."

In other words, Obama will install a rationing board to decide who gets health care ... and who is allowed to die.

As of July 2014, your doctor could be Obama
