Glenn Beck rally attendance: Calculating how many really showed up

Does it really matter whether 300,000 or 500,000 or 1 million people showed up for Glenn Beck's rally?

What matters is Nov. 2 - Election Day - when tens of millions of Americans can take their country back from the left-wing radicals.

On a side note, a person who was at the rally on Saturday (someone I trust) told me there were no more than 200-300 people at the Al Sharpton rally but the media reported 2,000-3,000 people there.

So it's clear the the liberal media has trouble counting. Whatever the number reported by the mainstream media for the Beck rally, multiply it by 10 and you'll get closer to the actual count.

From Independence Hall Tea Party Association:
Over 1,500 members and friends of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association are riding on 28 buses departing from various locations in the region to attend today's Glenn Beck Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C.

"The demand was such that we could have sent 40 buses. Our phones were ringing off the hook with people desperately wishing to attend this rally. We received calls from as far away as Arizona and California."

Over 100,000 people are expected to attend from all over the nation.

"People are really connecting with Mr. Beck's message," said Ms. Adams. "He's calling upon the nation to restore honor and character as virtues."

Speakers at today's rally include Dr. Martin Luther King's niece, Dr. Alveda King, and Sarah Palin, among others.
"We have spent the whole month preparing for this rally. We know it will be a momentous occasion," said Ms. Adams

More bad news for Democrats

It's beginning to look like a GOP rout in Pennsylvania as voters are looking for change after the disastrous Obama administration and Democratic-controlled Congress.

Highlights from the highly-respected Franklin & Marshall College Poll:
1) The percentage of Pennsylvanians who say the state is headed in the right direction now stands at 30 percent -- a 15 year low -- while 58 percent believe it is off on the wrong track.

2) Pennsylvanians continue to express pessimism about the economy. A third (33%) find their personal finances worse off this year than last, and only about one in four (24%) expect their personal finances to be better off a year from now. These figures have changed little since March.

3) In the governor's race Tom Corbett holds an 11 point lead over Dan Onorato, (38% to 27%), among likely voters with slightly less than one third (31%) undecided and four percent who would chose someone else. Among registered adults, Corbett holds a one point lead, (29% to 28%), with 39 percent undecided and four percent supporting another candidate. Registered adults cite the economy, reducing spending/debt, and taxes (29%, 11%, and 9%), respectively, as the most important issues in their vote for governor.

4) Among likely voters, Pat Toomey leads Joe Sestak (40% to 31%) in their primary race for U.S. senate, with about one in four (26%) undecided and three percent with another choice. When registered adults are considered, Toomey's lead narrows, 31 percent to 28 percent, with almost four in ten (38%) without a preference. More registered Pennsylvanians cite the economy (35%) as the most important issue in their vote for U.S. senate than did in May (26%).

5) President Obama's job approval in Pennsylvania remain relatively weak with only 37 percent of voters finding his performance positive, specifically nine percent "excellent" and 28 percent "good." Five times as many Pennsylvanians (35%) rate the president's job performance as "poor" compared to "excellent." Governor Ed Rendell's job performance is even weaker -- only 30 percent find his performance positive, seven percent find it "excellent" and 23 percent say it is "good." The same proportions (30%) say he is doing a "poor job."

6) Democrats are less likely to vote at the moment than Republicans. Only 37 percent of Democrats are likely to vote compared to 45 percent of Republicans. In another comparison, about one third (35%) of those who voted for Obama in 2008 are likely to vote now compared to half (50%) of McCain voters.

Study: Annual Cost of Motor Vehicle Crashes Exceeds $99 Billion

In a one-year period, the cost of medical care and productivity losses associated with injuries from motor vehicle crashes exceeded $99 billion - with the cost of direct medical care accounting for $17 billion, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The total annual cost amounts to nearly $500 for each licensed driver in the United States, said the study in the journal Traffic Injury Prevention.

Newspaper: Cut the size of PA Legislature

The Pennsylvania Legislature costs taxpayers at least $300 million a year. Does Pennsylvania, with its declining population, need one of the largest and most expensive state legislatures in the country?

From a recent editorial in The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
New data from Illinois -- which rivals Pennsylvania in government inefficiency and corruption -- link lavish legislative pay to bigger budget deficits. The fact bolsters the argument that Harrisburg's excesses must be tackled.

The nonpartisan, free market-oriented Illinois Policy Institute (illinoispolicy.org) found fiscal-year 2010 budget deficits in the 10 states with the lowest legislative salaries averaged 19 percent of their general funds.

In the 10 states with the highest legislative salaries -- Pennsylvania ranks fourth -- the average shortfall was 30 percent.

The Illinois issues the institute focused on mirror those that burden Pennsylvania. And the institute's conclusion about the Land of Lincoln is equally apt for the Keystone State:

"The state pays legislators considerably more than the nationwide average, and Illinois's perpetual budget deficit is a good indication that we're necessarily not getting our money's worth."

The same mindset that has led to career politicians addicted to full-time perks, per diems and personal power replacing part-time citizen legislators in Harrisburg fosters spendthrift policies that perpetuate red ink.

It's one more reason to promote a smaller Pennsylvania General Assembly.

Key endorsement for Maloney in 130th State House Race

From Kim Stolfer, chairman of Firearms Owners Against Crime, on the group's endorsement of Republican David M. Maloney, candidate for the 130th District in the Pennsylvania House:
We, FOAC, are convinced that Mr. Maloney will actively support Pennsylvania citizen's rights to defend themselves, their families and our constitutional heritage.

We believe that a strong, independent and constitutionally sound government is essential for our society to flourish, especially in these trying times. We have been in contact with Mr. Maloney for many months and he has demonstrated his knowledge of issues important to FOAC and we are confident he will represent the best interests of all Pennsylvanians regarding Second Amendment issues.

Mr. Maloney's opponent in the November election, State Rep. Dave Kessler (D) who is also Chairman of the Oley Township Supervisors, voted for an ordinance to ban all firearms from all Oley Township municipal buildings. This ordinance directly violated state preemption law, our constitution and Rep. Kessler's 'oath of office'. Citizens and gun-owner groups strongly objected to the ban. We at FOAC and the NRA became involved and within a month Mr. Kessler and the other supervisors were forced to withdraw their own ordinance because it violated PA state law which prohibits municipalities from regulating the ownership and possession of firearms.

Poll: Rendell job approval at 27%

It's taken them awhile, but Pennsylvania voters have finally figured out what a disastrous job Gov. Ed Rendell has done over the past eight years.

From Public Policy Polling:
Casting a very large shadow over this race is the unpopularity of outgoing Governor Ed Rendell. Only 27% of likely voters for this fall approve of the job he's doing while 63% are unhappy. Rendell's barely in positive territory even among Democrats at 45/42 and he's pretty universally disliked by Republicans (8/85) and independents (23/61.) Rendell's unpopularity can't be at all helpful for Onorato's chances. Swing voters aren't likely to choose another Democrat if they think the current one's doing a bad job, and Democrats' lack of enthusiasm about voting this year could certainly have something to do with their lukewarmness toward their party's present Governor.

Newspaper: Freebies for state lawmakers remain a problem

Pennsylvania legislators, already among the highest paid in the nation, are used to getting lots of free goodies from lobbyists and institutions looking for taxpayer dollars.

It's not a good practice, argues The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

From a recent editorial:
"It's a nice job if you can get it" ought to be the official motto of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Although the gravy train has slowed down since 2005 when public revulsion greeted lawmakers who had given themselves a big pay raise in a late-night vote, the freebies have not dried up.

That is depressingly clear from filings with the state Ethics Commission. As reported by the Post-Gazette's Tracie Mauriello on Sunday, 38 of the state's 253 legislators shared in at least $67,000 worth of goodies last year.

That doesn't include more than $18,000 in food and rental facilities for events hosted by lawmakers for constituents. And it doesn't include tangible gifts of less than $250, the overly generous threshold in the law above which filings on spending must be made.

In many ways, what legislators do receive is the same old, same old -- among the gifts reported were tickets to the Super Bowl, concerts and ball games, travel expenses, even yacht club memberships. The conflict of interest and the associated whiff of impropriety that comes with such freebies is reason enough to stop the gravy train dead in its tracks. For example, Verizon Wireless is not a charity, and taxpayers can fairly wonder what it got for the $9,786 worth of gifts, travel and hospitality spent on state officials and their families last year.

Krauthammer: Don't Violate Memory Of Ground Zero

Charles Krauthammer explains to Barack Obama why a mosque at Ground Zero is a bad idea.

From his new column:
A place is made sacred by a widespread belief that it was visited by the miraculous or the transcendent (Lourdes, the Temple Mount), by the presence there once of great nobility and sacrifice (Gettysburg), or by the blood of martyrs and the indescribable suffering of the innocent (Auschwitz).

When we speak of Ground Zero as hallowed ground, what we mean is that it belongs to those who suffered and died there — and that such ownership obliges us, the living, to preserve the dignity and memory of the place, never allowing it to be forgotten, trivialized or misappropriated.

That's why Disney's early '90s proposal to build an American history theme park near Manassas Battlefield was defeated by a broad coalition fearing vulgarization of the Civil War (and wiser than me; at the time I obtusely saw little harm in the venture).

It's why the commercial viewing tower built right on the border of Gettysburg was taken down by the Park Service. It's why while no one objects to Japanese cultural centers, the idea of putting one up at Pearl Harbor would be offensive.

Freebies for PA Lawmakers

In addition to top pay and benefits, Pennsylvania legislators received at least $67,000 in free items, according to newspaper reports.

From a story in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by reporter Tracie Mauriello:
Lawmakers last year got their hands on tickets to the Super Bowl, orchestra concerts, the Philadelphia Flower Show and Phillies games -- all without opening their wallets.

Those tickets are among at least $67,000 worth of freebies that state lawmakers accepted last year, according to statements of financial interest on file with the state Ethics Commission.

But that figure doesn't include more than $18,000 in food, facilities rental and other help lobbyists provided for lawmaker-hosted events, such as fairs for older residents in their districts.

Thirty-eight of the state's 253 senators and representatives disclosed receiving gifts such as yacht club memberships and travel to places as near as Philadelphia and as far as Rwanda.

Bad news for the tone deaf political class in Washington as the Nov. 2 midterm elections approach:

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters nationwide finds that just 30% are not angry at the government, with 13% who are Not At All Angry.

In surveys since last September, those angry at the government have ranged from 66% to 75%. Those who are Very Angry have run from 33% to 46%.

Yet while 83% of Mainstream voters are angry at the government’s policies, 92% of those in the Political Class are not.

Newspaper: Federal workers earning double their private counterparts

While the U.S. economy continues to hemorrhage under the failed policies of Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats, there is one sector that is living high on the hog: Government workers.

From USA Today:
At a time when workers' pay and benefits have stagnated, federal employees' average compensation has grown to more than double what private sector workers earn, a USA TODAY analysis finds.

Federal workers have been awarded bigger average pay and benefit increases than private employees for nine years in a row. The compensation gap between federal and private workers has doubled in the past decade.

Federal civil servants earned average pay and benefits of $123,049 in 2009 while private workers made $61,051 in total compensation, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The data are the latest available.

The federal compensation advantage has grown from $30,415 in 2000 to $61,998 last year.

Public employee unions say the compensation gap reflects the increasingly high level of skill and education required for most federal jobs and the government contracting out lower-paid jobs to the private sector in recent years.

Fouad Ajami explains why Barack Obama was destined to fail as president in a new op-ed published in The Wall Street Journal.

From Ajami's column:
It is in the nature of charisma that it rises out of thin air, out of need and distress, and then dissipates when the magic fails. The country has had its fill with a scapegoating that knows no end from a president who had vowed to break with recriminations and partisanship. The magic of 2008 can't be recreated, and good riddance to it. Slowly, the nation has recovered its poise. There is a widespread sense of unstated embarrassment that a political majority, if only for a moment, fell for the promise of an untested redeemer — a belief alien to the temperament of this so practical and sober a nation.

The 7 Worst Presidents of the Past 100 Years

One of my favorite columnists, John Hawkins, ranks the 7 worst presidents of the past 100 years (three Republicans and four Democrats) in a new column.

I agree with his choices but I think John is a bit kind to Jimmy Carter, ranking him 4th on the list. There's no surprise about who is the worst president is - Barack Obama - who has managed to set a new standard for incompetence in less than two years in office.

From his new column posted at Townhall.com:
Liberal historians have been ranking Presidents for years and of course there's always a heavy leftward skew to their evaluations. Republicans are inevitably ranked lower than they deserve to be while Democrats are sure to be portrayed in the kindest historical light. Here's a different take on the issue: A look at the worst Presidents of the last hundred years from a conservative perspective.
