Guess Who the Prison Guards Like?

Northampton County corrections officers had a little reception at the Hecktown Fire Hall last night. Can you guess the identity of the featured speaker?

Here's a hint. He's unconcerned about our growing pension fund deficit, calling it a mere "paper problem," even though it's the reason for half of the county's proposed tax increase.

Here's another hint. He thinks you, the taxpayer, should pay for free health care for every retired Northampton County worker, even the ones being hired right now. When County Exec John Stoffa suggested eliminating retirement health care for new hires at a Monday budget hearing, this mystery guest said that's a "nonstarter," whatever that means.

You see, he things the private sector exists to take care of the public sector, at least that portion of the public sector in the union.

I'm sure most of you know this person is Charles Dertinger. He's not at all concerned about overtime abuse at the county jail. You can pay for it.

Giving a politician access to your wallet is like giving a dog access to your refrigerator.

Matricide alert. The value conservatives John Cusick, Bruce Gilbert, Barb Thierry and Tom Dietrich have sent a direct mail piece targeted to so-called values voters deriding Peg Ferraro as being Pro-choice,and therefore, unacceptable to "values voters".

Aren't the anal cavity searches enough to satisfy you? And please, start wearing gloves.

I love the Republican Team peice. They condemn the proposed Stoffa tax increase and blame the Democrats even though Stoffa is a Republican stooge.

Since their own Party stated they liked Stoffa and would not run a candidate against him, the entire Republican team is endorsing Stoffa's tax increase, and their piece is hyocritical.

This is so easy its like shooting fish in a barrel.

The only Republican to win will be Ferraro.
