Canadian-born Playboy Playmate Shera Bechard granted U.S. 'genius' visa

Canadian model Shera Bechard, a former Playboy Playmate and one-time girlfriend of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, has qualified for a special visa the U.S. government reserves for "individuals with extraordinary ability," according to the Reuters news service.

Ms. Bechard posted the following message on her Facebook page: "I'd be the first to admit I'm not a genius. The visa is given to those in the arts, athletics, business & sciences who have extraordinary abilities. You don't have to be a genius to be a good fashion model, actor, baseball player or track and field star. You just have to achieve a certain level of success in your field, which I have done. I took me many months to put the application together - no strings were pulled, no extra cash was paid, no favours done - I got it because I deserved it."

I'm no immigration expert, but I can see Ms. Bechard's qualifications very clearly.

Read the full story about the controversial visa program at the Reuters website.

PA House Approves Quigley Plan to Study Property Tax Reform

In the flurry of last-minute activity, the PA House approved State Rep. Tom Quigley's resolution calling for the  creation of commission to study property tax reform. It's not the same as approving HB 1776, but at least it keeps the issue alive in Harrisburg.

Weekly GOP Address: Obamacare Must Be Repealed

Photo gives away liberal bias in newspaper

The ultra-liberal Reading Eagle has a story in its Saturday edition about a rally sponsored by a left-wing activist group called Keystone Progress. The news value of the "protest" is questionable. The newspaper ignores many rallies by conservative groups, but it's the photo next to the article that drew my attention. 

The article says 40 people attended the rally. But the photo next to the story shows 1 woman holding a sign and part of a second woman standing near her. If you're going to take a photo of a rally, wouldn't you want to include as many people in it? Especially when only 40 people show up. Either the reporter wrote the story from a press release issued by the left-wing activists or the reporter can't count.

Stop The Presses! Pennsylvania AFL-CIO Endorses All-Democratic Slate

Who could have predicted this one?

Big Labor is backing EVERY Democratic candidate for Congress from Pennsylvania this November as well as the three Democratic candidates seeking statewide races and all 13 Democrats seeking state Senate seats.

Before you get too flustered, there's only 5 Democratic members of the House of Representatives left in Pennsylvania after the shellacking the Dems took in 2010. And then there's Obama lapdog Bob Casey Jr. seeking re-election to the U.S. Senate. His opponent, Tom Smith, is a former Democrat, but I guess he wasn't liberal enough for the union endorsement.

There's a handful of Republican state House members on the AFL-CIO endorsement list, but there's more than 200 open House seats and I suspect most of the Republicans who are receiving Big Labor's backing are running unopposed. If they're not running unopposed, what does that say about their Democratic opponents?

Check out the full list of endorsements below:

Thorns to Ed Rendell for harassing Mitt Romney

From the editorial page of The Pottstown Mercury:
THORNS to former Gov. Ed Rendell for leading a busload of Democratic political activists in a protest rally last weekend at a Wawa in Quakertown where Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was planning to stop on a bus tour of Pennsylvania. Romney then changed his route and stopped at another Wawa. We think a high-profile politician like Rendell would have better things to do with his time than chasing bus tours of opposing candidates. Why not work within the system to effect positive change in Pennsylvania? Or, stick with sports commentary.

West Chester teachers seek 18% pay hike

The union representing teachers in the West Chester Area School District in Chester County, Pa., wants an 18.3 percent increase in salaries for its members over the next three years.

The union is also asking for expanded health care benefits, additional pay for meetings and a reduction of two work days, according to The West Chester Daily Local News. The union also wants to limit teacher transfers and have limitations on on-line course development and delivery, the newspaper says.

And of course, the obligatory boilerplate comment from the union president about how it's all for the kids: "We are proud of our teachers whose top priority is to provide the best quality education to all students within the West Chester Area School District, which was recently recognized as having some of the top high schools in the country."

What world are these union members living in?

Do they read newspapers? Have they ever heard of Wisconsin?

The school board is offering a combined 9.75 percent in pay hikes over three years, which is more reasonable ... and a lot more generous than what workers in the private sector can expect to see.

Live by the property tax, die by the property tax

Opponents of efforts to reform Pennsylvania's antiquated school property tax system are running out of excuses.

Holding a gun to property owners' heads to force them to pay property taxes may work ... until the economy sours, which it has for the past 5 years, and then the property owners seek relief from the courts.

From a story by Michael Rellahan of the West Chester Daily Local News:
WEST CHESTER – Chester County Common Pleas Senior Judge Thomas Gavin has ruled in favor of the Exton Square Mall in its appeal of its 2010-2011 property tax assessment, meaning a possible long-term loss of revenue for the West Chester Area School District, among others, which had argued against the appeal.

Gavin, in a ruling made Friday, agreed with the mall’s real estate appraiser that the assessed value of the 39-year-old regional mall was $52.6 million, far below either the Chester County Board of Assessment’s value of $62.5 million and the school district’s expert’s calculation of $62.3 million.
So where is the West Chester School District going to make up the lost tax revenues?

Eliminating school property taxes and substituting a combination of sales taxes/income taxes is the only way to fund public education.

That's why it's distressing that Pennsylvania legislators have tabled House Bill 1776.

Census Bureau: Household Net Worth Declines By 35%

Feeling a little poorer these days? You're not imagining things. A new report by the Census Bureau says the net worth of U.S. households declined by 35 percent between 2005 and 2010. And before Barack Obama blames it all on George W. Bush, keep in mind he was president in 2009 and 2010. And Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
WASHINGTON, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. median household net worth declined 35 percent between 2005 and 2010, from $102,844 to $66,740 (in 2010 constant dollars), according to a set of detailed tables released today by the U.S. Census Bureau. However, excluding home equity, median household net worth increased by 8 percent between 2009 and 2010, from $13,859 to $15,000.

Columnist: Pennsylvania has too many school districts

Here's a quick way to save a few million dollars. Trip the 500 school superintendents in Pennsylvania making between $100,000 and $200,000 a year down to about 40.


Columnist Paul Golias: We don't need 500 school systems. The administrative overkill is phenomenal. Luzerne County could function well as one school district. Public education in Pennsylvania likely could work with 40 districts. Smaller, rural-type counties could be tied together.

Newspaper: Paterno's will is a public matter

Penn State and the Paterno family fought for years to keep his taxpayer-paid salary a secret until courts ruled it was a matter of public record.

I don't understand why Paterno's will is being kept private. It's also a public document, especially since the Paterno estate is receiving more than $12 million in a pension settlement with Penn State University.

Property Tax Independence Act falls short of action

Pennsylvania voters must demand more from their elected officials. From an editorial in The Pottstown Mercury: What's lacking is for legislative leadership and Gov. Tom Corbett to champion the cause.  Until that happens, property tax reform will remain a case of all talk and no action.

Obama’s second-term agenda

John Hayward on why Obama is not talking about his plans for a second term:
Nervous voters watching the American economy teeter on the brink of a double-dip recession might wonder what, precisely, Barack Obama plans to do in his prospective second term. It’s interesting that the Obama campaign has spent very little time talking about this.  Almost all of their efforts have been attacks on Mitt Romney.  First they criticized his dog transportation policies from the 1980s.  Then they declared war on stay-at-home moms like Ann Romney, portraying them as out-of-touch Rapunzels who don’t understand life in the brutal Obama economy well enough to offer informed opinions about anything.

PA State Rep. Jim Cox makes lemonade out of the lemons handed to him by the House Finance Committee Monday.

Cox thanks his 10 colleagues who voted with taxpayers: "With this vote, these 10 state representatives joined me in supporting homeowners and opposing the special interests," Cox said. "It is nice to see that there are some patriots serving in Harrisburg who are willing to stand up for what is right.  My hope is that their numbers will continue to increase in the future."

13 lawmakers who killed Pa. property tax reform

The Pennsylvania House Finance Committee voted 13-11 on Monday to table a vote to send House Bill 1776 (the Property Tax Independence Act) to the full House for a vote to eliminate school property taxes in Pennsylvania.

The vote effectively ends any hope of getting property tax reform in Pennsylvania this year.

Here are the names of the 13 state legislators (9 Republicans and 4 Democrats) who voted for the status quo and denied relief from burdensome school taxes for Pennsylvania taxpayers, especially senior citizens:

Kerry A. Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin), Kevin J. Boyle (D-Philadelphia), Tim Briggs (D-Montgomery), Margo L. Davidson (D-Delaware), Madeleine Dean (D-Montgomery), Gordon Denlinger (R-Lancaster), George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland), Eli Evankovich (R-Armstrong/Westmoreland), Fred Keller (R-Snyder/Union), Duane Milne (R-Chester), Michael Peifer (R-Monroe/Pike/Wayne), Kathy L. Rapp (R-Forest/Mckean/Warren County) and Mario M. Scavello (R-Monroe).

All 13 of the lawmakers above are up for re-election this November. Make your voice heard and remove the professional politicians who continue to block property tax reform.

Rep. Jim Cox, R-Berks, the primary sponsor of House Bill 1776, says he's not giving up the fight, but chances of HB 1776 reaching the House floor are dwindling as the lawmakers prepare to take their annual 2-month vacation.

"I’m not going to let it rest," Cox told the PA Independent news service after the vote. "It’s not an issue that I can think can rest on any level. I think we’ve got to continue to move it forward."

Romney Coming To Pennsylvania June 16

From the Romney for President Campaign:
 Mitt Romney will meet with America’s families and business owners in small towns in six states as part of his “Every Town Counts” five-day bus tour. The “Every Town Counts” bus tour will begin in New Hampshire on June 15 and will continue on to small towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan.

"For three and a half years, President Obama has paid little attention to the everyday concerns of the American people,” Mitt Romney said. “President Obama has offered no hope for the future, and he has left American families to bear the burden of his failed policies. Too many American families have experienced a lost job, faced foreclosure, or been forced to spend their kids' college savings just to make ends meet. These are not statistics – these are our fellow Americans. In America’s small towns, you don't find despair -- you find boundless optimism. We know we can make America better, and that is why I am running for president."

Believe In America: Every Town Counts Bus Tour Outline

·         Friday, June 15 – New Hampshire

·         Saturday, June 16 – Pennsylvania 

·         Sunday, June 17 – Ohio

·         Monday, June 18 – Wisconsin and Iowa

·         Tuesday, June 19 – Michigan

More details will be announced in the coming days.

Teachers reject pay raises, want even more

Teachers continue to lose the PR battle with taxpayers. From the editorial pages of The Pottstown Mercury:
THORNS to the Pottsgrove School District teachers for rejecting a fact-finders report that recommended two raises over the course of three years, but also called for increased teacher contributions to health care costs. The report, which was unanimously accepted by the Pottsgrove School Board a week earlier, was made public this week. Posted on the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry website, the report was authored by John Skonier, who was appointed a fact-finder for Pottsgrove on April 18 by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board. In making the salary recommendations Skonier’s report made particular note of the nation’s and region’s current economic conditions. “The country is in the grips of a major recession and revenue sources are dwindling. ... These challenges require innovative approaches to bargaining. There must be a balancing between ever increasing health care costs and the limited economic resources available in the foreseeable future,” the report said. That means compromise and acceptance of economic reality.
