Pottstown is looking good. Several rehabs of existing older buildings, including The Mercury, and industrial buildings turned into very nice-looking apartments. College classes are also available and there are jobs. Some businesses have wanted signs displayed. Industrial Highway business is also making steel! Downtown has all kinds of small businesses and restaurants. Drug store, furniture store, auto repair, auto parts, bakery and a great library.
Thanks to The Mercury for putting Chrissy Houlahan on the front page. She thinks passing bills and spending money is “a good return on investment.” No — a thousand times no! I want to spend my own money, I don’t want Chrissy Houlahan or Ron Vogel to spend more money. When Democrats tax me more, via deficit spending they create inflation, which thanks to Houlahan are costing me over $5,000 this year.
I finally found a way to finance the refill of my heating oil by refinancing my house. But then the heating oil went up from $4.80 a gallon to $5.17 a gallon. That is about $1,300 to put 250 gallons in my tank. So I called the bank and now I find out that mortgage rates have increased too. A girl just can’t catch a break in Biden’s economy.
The far-right is outstanding in its ability to denigrate anything they disagree with. Their latest is the use of the word ‘grooming’ in its most negative sexual sense to paint teachers as pedophiles. Watch and see how quickly the use of the word spreads in Sound Off comments. They did the same thing with ‘woke’. “Let’s make it a pejorative! That’ll show ’em we mean business!”
R. Minninger, you write “Vance struck out just like Robert Mueller…” Let me quote Mr. Mueller from July 2019, “Due to DOJ policy I am unable to indict a sitting President”. When pressed if he could indict after a president left office he confirmed with “yes” twice. Waiting on Merrick Garland to do something, anything. Snarky, I’ve never heard 78 million people cry so long about being losers. Good day, all.
There is one word that would stop all the illegal border crossings at the Rio Grande river, it is alligators.
A question for Jay M, Lefty, David M and Patriot54: did you all go to the same school together? Did you all get Liberal (Democratic) Arts degrees? Are you all under hypnosis when you make comments in Sound Off? There must be some common thread connecting you. No 4 people can be so radical without being intertwined. Did I see all of you sitting together at McD’s drinking “kool-aid?”
From Rick Wilson: The DeSantis attack on Disney will cost Florida taxpayers at least $2 billion, and residents of the two counties where Disney resides an average of $2,200 more per household annually in local property taxes. DeSantis is working hard to kill the golden goose of Central Florida tourism. This stunt is all about giving DeSantis more ammunition in his nonstop culture war as he prepares to primary Donald Trump in 2024
The stock market getting ready to crash. Interest rates climbing. Home sales are cratering. Grocery and gas prices are through the roof. Biden voters are singing his praises — not so much — all they do is complaining about Trump. Independents are disapproving in record numbers.
Hey virtue-signaling leftist sheeple, nobody is stopping you from taking responsibility for yourself and imposing your own precautions on yourself. Feel free to do so instead of complaining you can’t force it on others.
The PA northern tier counties got 8 inches of snow last week — in April! — proving that global warming is a hoax. Then that 8 inches of snow melted by the same evening, proving that global warming is… real, right? Weather is not climate and wishful thinking is not science. I know how much we want it not to be true, but human life on earth is threatened if we do not act. Actions — and non-actions — have consequences.
Don’t you love it when a conservative is under oath? Superstar cultist Majorie Taylor Greene was on display last week and the lying never stopped. She couldn’t say “good morning” without a smirk. Every question was a joke to her but I guess the Trump cult loved it. Oh well, let’s hope she gets the beat and then she can go back to the farm. Am I right, Missy Miss?
Liberals are having a meltdown over Elon Musk buying twitter because it will now level the playing field. No longer will contrasting points of view be censored. They have lost their unfair advantage to cancel anything that is detrimental to the Democratic Party like the Hunter Biden Laptop story. With just 7 months before the election, Democrats know that America is not buying their crap and see right through their Marxist agenda.
The ‘prosperity’ gospel: If you’re rich, it’s because God loves you (unless your name is Soros or Bezos, or you’re from Hollywood). If you’re poor it’s because you don’t love God enough. Any idea how much harm this made-up ‘gospel’ has caused in this country? I don’t think it is JC-approved.
Is Kamala Harris still our Border Czar? Asking for a friend.
Putin is claiming victory in Ukraine, just like his buddy Trump did in the 2020 election. Both are lies. Two peas in a pod. That’s why they love each other.
Disney’s gay employees and that Disney did not fight Florida’s parental rights law. Isn’t it odd that they don’t complain that Disney Cruises sails to countries that still criminalize homosexuality, including Jamaica, Antigua, and Barbuda; Dominica; and St. Maarten?
Joe Biden is the equivalent of a human participation trophy. What a fool he and his voters are.
Mo Brooks is recorded on video explaining how committee assignments in Congress are essentially a menu for bidding by special interest groups. Of course, it wasn’t played on corporate media since he said it occurs in both parties and the media is backed by many of those same special interest groups. Voting gives the illusion of power to the everyday person but policy is forged by big money.
I went to a restaurant that serves “breakfast at any time,” so I ordered French Toast during the Middle Ages.
Oh Patriot54, your therapist must have gotten rich off of having you as a patient. Your view on the government’s role in our economy is simple-minded, to say the least. Through the taxes we all pay, we are in fact paying the government to ensure “things” remain affordable. And we certainly don’t expect them to implement economic policies that cause prices to rise. And that’s exactly what your idol Joe Biden has done.
According to USA Today, President Biden and his wife paid taxes on their $610,000 combined income. The ConMan is still being audited? Believe that and I’ll tell you another one!
Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren declared that Elon Musk buying Twitter is a threat to our democracy. Why? Because Musk believes in free speech. Former President Barack Obama said we need more censorship on social media, not less. This is today’s Democrat party. Free speech must be suppressed because it’s a threat to the Democrats’ hold on power!
With midterms upon us, please keep in mind what the democrats have done to you, your families, your kids, your businesses, and the American economy over the past two years, and make sure they’re all fired. They needlessly closed schools causing irreparable damage to our kids, shut down businesses causing record-setting personal and business bankruptcies, and they followed the science when it benefited them and ignored it when it didn’t. Dems be tripp’n!
I read Sound Off all the time and most of the time I am too lazy to send in a comment. I must say Robert Minninger, Michael Stern, and Patriot45 have been “spot on” day after day. Today Michael Stern pointed out how the biased media labels conservative justices as controversial and liberal justices as historic or something positive. Keep up the good work.
Parade magazine had a story about Liam Neeson. He was quoted saying, “You create your own luck. It’s not gonna come to you. You have to get out there and push yourself.” Wow, for the past 8-10 years, all MSM ever celebrates is victimhood. Everyone is a victim. Everything is someone else’s fault. It’s so refreshing to hear this fellow’s thoughts. His message is what we need to be teaching our kids today.
Sadly, we don’t have enough people in the USA that understand the “basic law of common sense, “which is — “If too many people enjoy the free ride and not enough people help pull, the wagon isn’t going anywhere! “
