They have been warned.
Tell me if this makes any sense.
The former commissioners of Luzerne County invested $6 million in the soon-to-be razed Hotel Sterling. Then, with the eventual fate of the dilapidated structure having seemingly been determined, they promised to invest yet another $1 million in the demolition of the property.
But since Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton has refused to waive a perplexing $50,000 permit fee in advance of the impending demolition, the newly-seated Luzerne County Council is balking?
The expenditure of $7 million for what will turn out to be a vacant, muddy lot is doable. But $7,050,000.00 would be a deal breaker?
It must be me.
Let’s see, we lost three structures today as the result of two structure fires some ten hours apart.
I got home in time to hear that the 911 folks were desperately trying to contact off-duty firefighters for a second fire go-round during what amounts to a single shift for the fire department. Exhaustion immediately comes to mind.
If we’re ever going to bolster the ranks of this department, we’ve got to oust the socialist losers from the White House and get this economy of ours humming again. There’s less and less Fedrule Govmint dollars available, now that Barry has spent us three-quarters of the way to oblivion. And less and less coming from the cash-strapped state.
If you’re not registered to vote, get your ass in gear. Eight months until next we pick a new president.
I cracked up when I read this quote from Barry Oblahblah offered in response to the Rush/slut dustup…
“I don’t know what’s in Rush Limbaugh’s heart, so I can’t comment on the sincerity of his apology,” the president said. “All decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in public discourse.”
While that’s all well and good and hollow, I think he should start policing the public discourse by muzzling his own supporters as well as those who have that “D” preceding their names.
The left-leaning could easily be called Name-calling Inc., evidenced by Sarah Palin being called a “cu>t” on a television show by one of Barry Oblahblah’s biggest financial contributors.
Nice try, one-term Barry. Save it for someone who’s eyes don’t gloss over when you incessantly babble again.
Note: The preceding was typed by a bitter, clinging, right-leaning, gun-toting, bible-thumping, homophobic racist who has been conscripted in the War on Women now that he‘s done beating on the “less fortunate” homeless and bombing abortion clinics.
Did I get it right, Barry?
