This is the start of the holiday season and boy do we start it off right. Thanksgiving, its no longer a day of thanks, but a glutenous feast of food and booze followed by three NFL football games and then a tryptophan induced sleep. If you are not into any of these Thanksgiving traditions, you can now either sit in the dark listening to Christmas songs on Magic 93 or you can go shopping. Yes, you read that right, go shopping. It seems that many of the major stores like Sears, Bon Ton and others at the mall open at 8:00pm tonight. In fact, K-Mart will open at 6:00am Thanksgiving Day while our friends at WalMart are open 24/7 as usual. Many of the local retail monsters open at some point today with Black Friday like sales.
I have to tell you, I have a real problem with this on several avenues. First off, let me just say, "You greedy sons of bitches". Let your part time employees stay at home with their families for Thanksgiving. No, why would they do that? Instead their quest for every freakin penny has led them to taking people away from their Thanksgiving dinner. I have to tell you that this really ticks me off. People deserve a break and holidays should be that break. Hell, these poor workers will be bum rushed as soon as the doors open by every low life scum bag trying to get a 62 inch high def TV for $399.95. Of course the stores will only have 3 of them in stock. Wow, that just brought back memories of the Cabbage Patch Kid riot at Zayers. That one made the national news. If you never saw the video, just look it up on U-Tube. It's beautiful.
Speaking of Black Friday, it's now going extinct like the Do Do Bird. With all the stores open on Thanksgiving, Black Friday now becomes no big deal. The mindless discount dimwits will storm the stores right after dinner. Many will be drunk and tired from a day of gluttony. I would expect several fist fights and car accidents. I would think that WB Township will have extra cops on duty at triple time to handle the brawls and fender benders. Sure, Black Friday will still have some great deals, but the thrill of standing in line starting at 3am in the 17 degree weather is now gone. What has this country come too? I'll tell you. It's all about the almighty dollar, PERIOD! It's about retail chains milking everything they can from the marketplace.
The R2G would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
Here we go again. It's time to bend over, drop your drawers and get ready to take the red hot tax poker right in the old shit chute. Our wonderful Governor, Tom Corbett along with the state House passed a bill this past week to fund $2.3 billion dollars over the next five years to fix roads and bridges here in the Keystone or should I say Keybone state. By a 113 to 85 vote, these political parasites voted to add another additional tax onto gasoline and motorist fees to fund this project. Corbett feels that there is an urgent need to repair the infrastructure here in Pennsylvania. State Rep Mike McGeehan out of Philadelphia said, "Everyone wants good roads and bridges but nobody wants to pay for it". You got that right laser breath. McGeehan is the ranking Democrat on the Transportation Committee This I can actually agree with. However, Corbett is now laying the burden of these repairs on the taxpayers of the Commonwealth. What else is new? McGeehan also said, "Unfortunately that is not a reality. If we want to remain a first class economic power it can't be done with a third class transportation system".
WHAT! WHAT! ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDING ME! Pennsylvania an economic power! What a joke. Here in NEPA our economic power revolves around $10.00 an hour warehouse and customer service jobs. We have the economic power of a flea. AS for a third class transportation system, I would rate it as a tenth class system. I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of getting the tax shaft every time our government drops the ball and lets everything deteriorate to dangerous conditions. If these clowns did their jobs we would not be in this pickle in the first place. If over the years they repaired roads and bridges on a continual basis "We The People" would not be getting whacked on the rump with yet another tax on gas. I for one am sick and tired of all these taxes. I have nothing left to give these mismanagement monkeys in Washington and Harrisburg. There is no one to blame but themselves for letting our infrastructure deteriorate into its current deplorable condition. Yet again they place the burden on the taxpayers to fix their mistakes. Maybe it's time to storm Harrisburg so we can let them know that we have had enough. I recommend that you call your State Rep to find out how they voted. Every time they vote for another tax or to raise taxes mark it down and remember it on election day.
I am sick and tired of these DUI Checkpoints. I see that the PA State Police just got done with what they called Operation Nighthawk. Yea, they even give them names. I always thought that this was entrapment. Now, I'm not saying that you should get all mangled up and then get behind the wheel, that's what cabs and Uber's are for. What I don't like is you have two or three beers and you are cuffed and treated worse than a murderer. Hell, anymore if you open a beer and take a smell of it you are considered over the limit. Let's stop the bull shit and concentrate on the drug dealers who are flowing into our area to sell their crap. Lay off the poor guy or gal that goes for a few drinks with their friends and is totally capable of operating a vehice.
