Corbett looks bad in the Penn St scandel. As Attorney General of Pennsylvania, Corbett would not touch the Penn State investigation even as the victims kept piling up. As a PSU Board of Trustee member, he agreed to the sanctions in July.

So now, months later, he wants to breach the agreement that the Board of Trustees agreed to.

From the PSU Board of Trustees July Press Release:
"The University and the Board will comply with the NCAA’s sanctions"

Lets look at Corbett's approval ratings:

@TaxNoMore, I wish you'd stop pasting just random, worthless shit all the time and just contribute to the conversation at hand. I know you get excited after a long masturbatory session with Fox News, but I find a little humility goes a long way. Even if that means being subjected to your opinions.

Unlike other failed prosecutions, Corbett waited until he had an iron-clad case against Sandusky.

The NCAA is a monopoly in violation of every antitrust law on the books and the NCAA will never take the risk of going to court. Expect a settlement in which the penalties against Penn State are substantially reduced.

State liquor stores are the farthest thing possible from the free market.
But never fear, your unionized shelf-stocking and register skills may qualify you for a supermarket job. Those guys are union as well.
Plus, someone with the name "skip the pee pee" should not criticize anybody.
OK, so I'll admit I've been having a little trouble following this. But from what I can tell, a user named Skip to the Pee Pee is against it.
Unfortunately, I'm not seeing much of a compelling argument from either side. So let me take one....
The conservative crowd is decidedly anti government, anti union. Perhaps a simplification, but come on, that is a bit of a mantra at this point.
So why, oh why, would there be support for LITERALLY socialized alcohol sales in the state of Pennsylvania?
Well, first you have to remove the prudish, teetotaling portion of the state - those who want the guv'ment to keep their grubby hands off their guns and out of women's vaginas.
This is THE ISSUE where I agree with conservatives. End socialized wine & liquor sales. Open up the free market. Allow "distributors" to sell six packs.
Pennsylvania is becoming a great beer state, with some incredible craft breweries opening up all the time.
Don't be a hypocrite - if you're anti-socialism, then you have to be for this.

If you liberals are so gung ho on producing ID to purchase guns and ammo, which is a constitutionally guaranteed right, then I want ID to be produced when people go to vote!

You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Not sure what you think my position is, but I am completely opposed to the existing state liquor store system.

As for beer, the existing case-oriented beer distributor system is a joke. They are free to stay in business, if anybody wants to patronize them, but beer should be sold in six-packs (or whatever quantity) in supermarkets, along with liquor and wine.

FOX news is getting rid of their riff raff
Sarah Palin gets FIRED!!
NEW YORK (AP)— Fox News Channel is parting ways with former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, ending her three-year tenure as a contributor on the network.
While Palin's time at Fox was occasionally rocky, the network's news executive, Bill Shine, said Friday that "we have thoroughly enjoyed our association" with her.
"We wish her the best in her future endeavors," said Shine, Fox's executive vice president for programming.

and when your gun owner finds out he needs a birth certificate with a raised seal to get the id he needs--he will realize that he has to spend around $40 to get his birth certificate.
then the gun owner will realize the problem with voter ID in PA.
besides republicans wanted voter id to help elect romney.

"Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”

The statement drew a loud round of applause from the audience. It also struck a nerve among critics, who called it an admission that they passed the bill to make it harder for Democrats to vote — and not to prevent voter fraud as the legislators claimed."

Yes, President Obama, the Constitution applies to you, too.....but but but I know whats best for the US and my sheeples.

----------

Sometimes, Barack Obama acts like the Constitution does not apply to him and the Congress is an imaginary being. Friday, the United States Court of Appeals brought the president back to Earth and reminded him that that the Constitution’s Appointments Clause and the U.S. Senate are very much part of reality by voiding three of Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

We disagree on the term "free" in free market. Example: I let you get $100 in groceries off my Access card in return for $25 cash you pay to me which I buy a fishing pole with. How did my did my $25 enter the legitimate free market, by magic? No, the free market value was in government.

My free refers to "not coerced". Al Capone sold illegal poisonous bathtub gin to willing buyers. I'd say that was the market at play legitimized by government sor not.

At the opposite end of the equation we vote in legislators who stymie things. But as long as we are free to reverse that vote IMO it's part of a "free market" as far as value for value transactions go. The marketplace of ideas dictates the free market of commerce. Always has.

I will not stand for these Nerf guns anymore. I have turned this over to my loose cannon the great Joe Biden. There needs to be tougher laws. We must prevent these from getting into the hands of the mentally ill. If we don't do something soon they will end up in our fine schools with more future sheeple being killed. Stand with me my sheeple and show me your support.

Most gun owners already have driver's licenses or other acceptable forms of ID.

In fact, just about everybody except fugitives and illegal aliens already have acceptable IDs.

End socialized lottery sales.
Open education up to the free market, Allow "vouchers" and big tax credits for home schooling.
Pennsylvania is becoming a great right to work state, with some incredible craft breweries opening up all the time.
Bar public sector workers from collective bargaining on issues other than base wages, impose tough re-certification requirements, and bar employers from automatically deducting union dues from paychecks.

All state lotteries, including the Pennsylvania lottery, would be considered consumer fraud if operated by anyone other than the government.

A total ripoff victimizing the poor and the ignorant.

I don't really care one way or another. As long as I can get my Nattie Light, it's all aces for me. I do wish it was more convenient though.

As to the free market we can either call all things completely free or completely limited because depending on how you look at it either case could be made.

I like that you brought up the idea of people being consistent in their positions. I can look at everything as a position of good. Then it just becomes a matter of the majority rules in many (but not all) cases. There's not evil and blessed, just preferences.

Don't have a stroke people.

That sounds like fraud, not the free market.

A good reason why welfare bums should be given groceries and not a debit card.

I don't agree people on welfare are necessarily bums but I agree they should get basic food stuffs as groceries, not a debit card. If they want to sell their pack of carrots on the street corner, I say go for it.

And while trading Access Card money for cash is fraud it's still a free market transaction, the subject we were discussing.

Hahaha. As a touché to the birthers we should make a law where all guns should come with a certificate showing it's date of manufacture (birth) which would have to be produced at the asking of any governmental official.

I'm saying there's any sense to it. Just that it'd be ironic ;)
