Congressman Jack Murtha (D-PA) Disses Constituents

Okay, normally the goings on in the Pennsylvania 12th Congressional District are of little concern to me.  I live in the New York 22nd Congressional District.  Unfortunately, I do know who the congressman for the PA 12th is as Jack Murtha is in the news a lot.  He has been in Washington for a while,… Continue reading Congressman Jack Murtha (D-PA) Disses Constituents

Voter Suppression by Government?

I know we think that title sound preposterous.  I would have thought so if I hadn’t just finished reading my local paper.  Please bear in mind I have two college-aged children expecting absentee ballots for the election and I live in the Town of Union.
