THE RIGHT TO GRIPE

I had to do it! I had to create a blog so you and I could gripe about all of "The Crap" that we encounter everyday in our lives. Believe me, there is plenty! You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight or say it's your opinion. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy. To post your own Gripe just email it to therighttogripe@hotmail.com and we will get it on. You can also post a Gripe on our Facebook page. Just search The Right To Gripe. If you don't want to write it down, just click on one of the boxes below each Gripe to give your opinion. You can also become an official "Griper".

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett Helps To Dummy Up America



Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett released his first proposal for the 2011-2012 Budget last week and let me say it knocked me right on my ass! Our new Governor has sliced and diced the budget with precision accuracy to the tune of $850,000,000. At first glance, this looks great! However, "Slap Chop" Tom proposes that we cut basic education spending by $550,000,000 and pre-school spending by $2,400,000. Are you freaking kidding me! It appears that the phrase "Dummy Up America" is holding true. Included in the $550,000,000 in education cuts are cuts to state funded colleges such as Penn State, Pitt. and Temple. Governor Corbett also wants to put accountability block grants in the "Slap Chop" (we don't have all day here), which represent a $259.5 million hit to school districts. WHAT???? Again, are you freakin kidding me? This type of thinking drives me insane! Not long ago figures were released stating that American teens ranked 25th out of 34 O.E.C.D. countries in Math and 29th in science. O.E.C.D. stands for Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Included in the 34 member nations are China, The United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France and The United States. I recommend that you go to the O.E.C.D. web site for more information. Of course, China ranks #1 in overall O.E.C.D. rankings which is no surprise to this Griper!

So what does all of this have to do with "Slap Chop" Corbett? Well, let me tell you. It is budgetary thinking like his that will lower our position in the world of education. We are already falling way behind the rest of the world and that does not bode well for the future of our economy. Without solid education, our leaders of the future will be slack jawed neanderthals compared to the rest of the world. We will fall behind in technological,industrial and political advancements. Jobs will be farmed out to smarter countries meaning more unemployment and more leaches suckling off the teats of the welfare system. Thinking like this is like kicking the youth of America right in the nuts and then letting them lay there. "We The People" cannot let this happen. Write to "Slap Chop" Corbett to let him know what you think. If we don't act now, our kids are doomed! All I have to say is, thanks Governor Corbett for helping to "Dummy Up America"!

    past 10 years 3.5 billion of the tax payers money and still raised tuition 110 % . now they say they will have to pass the loss on to the students.
