Racial profiling

About the 27-mile pursuit, read it again. That lady called the cops because it was a black man and that is why she reported it as suspicious. What were they doing so wrong that she had to call the cops?

Immediately never

Chalk up another Trump campaign lie. Trump repeatedly promised he would “immediately terminate” Obama’s Dreamers Act stating, “Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation — that is what it means to have laws and to have a country.” Well, flip-flop Donald announced he will not terminate the act. Trump’s flip-flop has gives almost one million illegal immigrants permission to legally stay in our country. Just one more slap in the face to the voters who supported Trump.

Cruisin’ for trouble

Another car cruise and another night of lawless driving without a cop in sight. Tires squealing, engines revving, excessive speeding when possible. I’m all for worthy causes, but this event is ridiculous. What cause is it helping ? Cruising is fine, but there are laws to keep while driving and supposedly police to administer these laws. In this town, you give an inch and they’ll take a foot, which is exactly what happens. They do it during the cruise, they think they can do it always.

Illegal burn

I thought it was illegal to burn within the City of Shamokin. I also thought it was illegal to burn a fire pit in your backyard. No wonder I can’t keep my windows open in the nice weather because all I’m smelling is something burning. If we can have controlled burns, I’m getting myself a garbage can and I’m going to start burning my stuff.

Double dips

I’m just reading about Manna for Many looking for volunteers. You can probably start with looking for people who sell their food stamps for half price. Then they’re the first ones in line at the Chuckwagon for the free meals.

So sick

One of the first signs of mental illness are double standards. The media went crazy when there was a rodeo clown with an Obama mask on, but it’s all right to have a play assassinating Trump. These people are so sick.

Soda perk

I’m just wondering when they’re going to put cocaine back in Coca-Cola (for medicinal reasons, of course).

Just pay it

To the person calling about paying your sewer bill in Zerbe Township: We all have to pay them. So you might as well pay yours instead of worrying about them shutting your water off. You aren’t any better than the rest of us. What about the people at the lower end of town? When it rains they can’t even use their toilets, but they still pay their bills. So instead of crying about something you can prevent, pay your bill.

Did you think Trump’s speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree was appropriate?
