Summer is upon us. Those that are involved with politics either do one of two things .... go to the beach or work their ass off trying to turn things around.
Philadelphia is a tough town for Republicans. All the pundits say to forget the city - Republicans will never win - Lost Cause - they say.
Well, I have been fighting that attitude for the last 30 years (I must be crazy....) Anyway, we must keep trying - Philadelphia is going down - especially with this Budget garbage.
And it's all run by Democrats.
All of you who have been moaning about the Philadelphia Republican Party will have the opportunity to effectuate change in the 2010 elections.
New Committee People elected in 2010 may provide new Ward Leaders. Ward Leaders vote for Chairman or Chairwoman of City Committee.
Ward Leader incumbents should be filling their holes within their wards now. Election Boards should be filled by the 2009 General election.
Arlen has left the fold ......oh sorry, old news.
or was it no news?
Arlen is still our Senator ..... unless he gets beaten in 2010. And the plans to do so are cooking. Lots of people are jumping into the Toomey wagon even though the pundits are calling for Tom Ridge......
There may be a Primary after all ......
In today’s environment there are cuts, and layoffs. What you were doing one day changes the next day.
And you have to adapt. Redefine yourself.
You must come up with a new way to survive.
Look at your strengths …write them down. And then put down all the things you Like to do.
Well, I got the day off.
with pay - lol
Happy I have a job to go to tomorrow and worried about those that don't.
What are they going to do?
Let's see what our current President and his "stimulis/spending" pkg really does.
How will it "trickle down"?
10/25/08 - written to L.O. from Adam ......
As many of us on the group know, getting editorials published in the
Inquirer has been very tough for us. With the group, I have
personally had a variety of articles published in the Public Record,
Daily News and The Bulletin. The last time I ever got something
published (and it wasn't through the LO) in the Inquirer was a letter
to the editor I wrote in response to Dwight Evans saying we need a
Constitutional Convention ... and they stuck it in the Currents
So I got the call. Can you drive motorcade for Sarah Palin this weekend? (Oct. 11 and 12) Sure can!
So we were at the airport waiting for her plane to land. On the tarmac was the Obama plane - waiting for their guy to arrive. Well, when he did I never saw so many police vehicles and "black" police cars. I heard that his life has been threatened 4 times already .....
But that is another story.
So Governor Palin comes in after Obama's plane leaves. We get in the motorcade and off we go to the Bellview for a big ticket fundraiser.
I never thought it would happen. I had first heard of Sarah Palin when a Blogger clued me in that she was endorsed by the Women at American University in June. So I floated her name and credentials among my insiders ....and the rest is history.
Ok, we are now on the Palin Factor Ride. The first reaction among the Philadelphia Democtatic Party Regulars was anger. "How dare he! Who is she!" Ha Ha I laughed. And the Race Began.
