Opinions Online, 12/12/15

Blogger's Note:Opinions Online is a regular Saturday feature. If you'd like to express your opinion on any topic, click on the Opinions Online button on my left sidebar. You can also call 385-325-2564. In addition to these submissions, I am taking some comments from throughout the week and re-publishing them here.

**********

Talking about National embarrassments, The out of touch, denier of reality, occupier of the White House is not only an embarrassment, but a disgrace to America.

**********

Ovem Lupo Commitere: I notice that every time you have a story about workers, your comments section is filled with anti-union rhetoric about "union pukes", "sheeple", "welcome to the private sector", etc, etc. I have been on both sides of contracts, and I have seen how unions have protected workers who genuinely don't deserve it. I have also seen how management in both the private and public sectors will push where they can, at the expense of the worker, to save a buck. Unions can be too greedy, management can be too greedy. BUT, at the end of the day unions (directly and via ripple effect) helped to create the large middle class in the 1900s, and since their decline the middle class has also shrunk. Many other variables at play, besides the decline of union households, but the middle class is shrinking. http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2015/12/09/the-american-middle-class-is-losing-ground.

Nazzy's tree is way cool. Drove by it last night. Wow. Tough to get a good pic of something so large. It's a fitting tribute from Jesus's home town.

**********

Fiorentino and his colleague deserve a warm thank you from every Bethlehem citizen concerned about a open democratic process and the future of our town.

**********

The Mayor should remove Fiorintino and Malozzi from the Planning Board. That is their only job and they cancelled a meeting because they don't agree with the administrations opinion on the property. Their only job is to give their opinion on plans presented to them and they refused to do it.

**********

Bernie O'Hare the eco-terrorist drives around in his smog belching antique truck snapping pictures of slaughtered majestic trees, living creatures which are sacrificed to satisfy the myth of Jesus. While the climate conference takes place in Paris our world squanders resources by illuminating dead reincarnated druids while we perpetuate the consumer culture that is so very damaging to Gaia.

They spent over $50 million to try and to destroy Bill Clinton and failed. Now they will rewind the endless Benghazi smokescreen in which they have spent countless hours and millions on nothing by their own estimation.

The teabagger obsessed right wing whackos will scream and scream and scream. In the end they will make the asses out of themselves that will continue to keep them out of the White House, where voters prefer adults to run things and not petulant children.

Benghazi was about a poorly produced, offensive video. The producer was brought to justice. The families of the dead are just whiners and need to move on with their miserable lives.

Especially one that sells decent hot dogs and other hot food inside, along with a wall of various soft drinks and juices.

The real embarrassment and threat to this country is the Republican Party. I will always vote against them and support both the president and Ed Pawlowski when they run again.

Is there something wrong with this message? I realize it's nothing like, "Let's kill anyone who is different," But that message is actually consistent with the "Christian" values you wack job pretend to embrace.

It's great you quit drinking. But when zealots like you want to impose your lack of self-control on the rest of us, I say fuck you. You're no different than religious nuts who want to force everyone into their twisted belief system.

Bernie O'Hare said...

It's typical that you would respond with vulgarity. My opposition to six-packs at 7-11s has nothing to do with my alcoholism or any desuire to deprive people of the right to drink. I have nothing against booze. I am only opposed to me drinking booze. My opposition to six-packs at 7-11s is something I've had a long time. I've never liked them and don't like them in Jersey. I do not want Pa. to become another Jersey. There are plenty of places to get booze. A "convenience" store should not be one of those places.

Does anyone know why Obama calls ISIS 'ISIL'?

Anonymous said...

ISIL means Islamic State in the Levant , which means all of the Islamic countries, ISIS means Islamic state of Iraq and Syria, Obama must prefer the former.

Anonymous said...

ISIS stands for the "Islamic State in Iraq and Syria
ISIL stands for the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant."

Levant is a historical geographical area which once included Syria, Lebanon, western part of Jordan, Palestine (West Bank and Gaza Strip, Israel and Sinai (Egypt). So what Obama is saying these wingnuts' reach extends far beyond just Iraq & Syria.

O'Hare's transgressions against Gaia are not exclusive to his selfish methods of propulsion they include a diet high in carbon intensive livestock, clothing made in Bangladesh,and employment at a printed newspaper.

The human species is destroying the planet Bernie used to be a good steward of the earth by way of his cycling but that has been abandoned a treasonous betrayal which will not be forgotten by the brotherhood of creatures.

I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful weather outside. It's almost Christmas and it is warm and sunny. Hopefully you have your shopping done and can enjoy how nice it is.

This will not last long until it gets back to normal.

Obama refers to ISIS as ISIL because his administration is under orders to avoid mentioning Syria, his most horrific foreign policy failure. He drew a line in the sand and didn't follow through, creating the current refugee crisis, the declaration of the caliphate and a 4,000% growth in ISIS (per his CIA director who said Bush had "decimated" ISIS to 750 fighters contained in a small area in Iraq).

I support Bernie's recycling efforts, especially regarding his reuse of the Wicked Witch of West Easton's Toyota Broom.

Obama (who claimed to have visited 57 or 58 states while campaigning) doesn't even know how to pronounce Copenhagen. He prefers the pseudo-intellectual ice cream pronunciation of Copen-haagen. Ask a Dane how they pronounce the name of their largest city.

The opinion written about the unions is spot on. Ever since Reagan demonized and helped destroy the unions the common worker/middle class have seen things slide downhill.

How do folks feel about any State Reps or Senators who took off to Manhattan this weekend for PA society while we STILL do not have a budget. Senators might have better excuse since they passed bills. But the house? They were supposed to be in session Saturday and it was cancelled.

Many didn't go. Some cause of the budget. Some cause of a bombastic presidential candidate who headlined one GOP fundraiser.. but many did go. R's and D's.

Do we know who did or did not go from the Valley? Was it appropriate to do so? We're now getting to the point where rank and file Pennsylvanians are feeling the lack of a budget.

5:27, Blue Badger is not mainstream for an environmentalist. Very few environmentalists are of the sort you see on tv or in the news chaining themselves to trees and that sort of thing. I should know, I study ecology and worked at a scout camp for years teaching scouts about the environment. While most people I have worked with would consider themselves environmentalists, none of them have chained themselves to trees or tried to sabotage construction projects, because while increasing knowledge of environmental issues is important and preventing the degradation of our environment is important, environmental regulations are more important and are tough to get without being on the good side of public opinion.

Yet for all of the voters who thank these people ,to restore democracy, they will blindly vote for the exact same crew of criminals like the mayor and the criminals on city council. The same people who claim top be outraged will not only vote for these hacks, they will support the exact same party that has been in total control for decades.

Not sure what is more disgusting ? The scam city council/ the controlling party, played on Bethlehem and Allentown's, tax payers, via the mayors office, the school board ,city council , and or any one else associated with getting these criminals elected, or the idiots who not only financially supported these same criminals, but attended or hosted fund raisers for these same criminals and the party they represent.

Yeah, now lets get nice and pissed at the criminal mayors and council in Bethlehem and Allentown, both who sold the criz and the niz as a bunch of lies.

Lets get nice and pissed and hammer them in the blog, but when they need campaign cash, support m, fund raiser and votes , we will forget all about this , so we can have power and control of the city govt and continue to screw the tax payers in favor of multi millionaire developers and people who pay little to no taxes.

AND HOW HAS THAT BEEN WORKING OUT OF LATE ??

LOVE WHEN THE TERM OF RESTORING DEMOCRACY IS USED WITH THE CURRENT ALLENTOWN AND BETHLEHEM CITY GOVTS. THE SYSTEM IS BROKE. THATS THE BEST THING THAT CAME OUT OF THIS. THE FIX IS NOT TO VOTE THESE FOOLS IN TO ANY FORM OF ELECTED OFFICE EVER AGAIN. THEY HAVE ALL VIOLATED THE TRUST OF THE VOTERS AND THE COMMUNITY.
WHEN A DOG BITES, UNPROVOKED , YOU NEVER EVER TRUST THAT DOG AGAIN.
