Bill O'Reilly: Getting Schooled In Wisconsin

From Bill O'Reilly's new column on the terrible lesson Wisconsin teachers are sending to students by walking off their jobs:
Here's a lesson that is both ironic and sad at the same time. According to the U.S. Department of Education, two-thirds of the eight graders in Wisconsin cannot read proficiently. But assuming the kids are skilled enough to watch TV, they can now see their teachers demonstrating to keep their generous union benefits. So, while things do not seem to be going well in the classroom, any thought of holding teachers somewhat responsible is cause for a protest march.

Someone should tell David Kessler he lost the election

I was driving along Memorial Highway (Route 662) in Oley earlier today when I noticed an odd sign in front of an office building. It read "State Representative David Kessler."

The problem with the sign is that Kessler lost his bid for re-election last November and is no longer representing the 130th State House District.

The new state rep for the 130th is Republican David Maloney, who has district offices in Douglassville and Boyertown, the two most populous parts of his district.

Democrat Kessler moved his offices to Oley, where he lives, for his convenience, while he served four years in the Legislature.

I've heard Kessler took the defeat pretty hard, but it's time to move on. There's no need to confuse residents of the 130th District about who their state rep is.

Citizen Kessler should take down his office signs.

It's not like the signs are etched in marble. A screwdriver is all that's needed to remove Kessler's signs.

Maybe Rep. Maloney, who was a contractor before winning a seat in the Legislature, could help Kessler take down the signs.

Chamber backs Medaglia for State Senate

The Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce and Industry has endorsed Republican Larry Medaglia for the vacant 11th Senatorial District.

Medaglia is running in a special election March 15 to fill the remaining two years of the Senate term of the late Sen. Mike O'Pake, who died in December.

Chamber officials made the endorsement announcement at an afternoon press conference at the Chamber headquarters in the Gateway building in Reading.

"I'm honored the Chamber recognizes my commitment to business growth and a strong local economy," Medaglia said in a written statement. "As a State Senator, I will work tirelessly to champion business-friendly initiatives to keep our community vibrant and strong."

Today's announcement follows earlier endorsements received by Medgalia from Citizens Against Higher Taxes and Pennsylvanians for Effective Government. Berks County Commissioners Mark C. Scott and Christian Leinbach have also endorsed Medaglia.

Medaglia currently serves as the Berks County Register of Wills/Clerk of Orphans' Court.

A breakthrough in protecting the unborn

Nat Hentoff is as liberal as you get, but when it comes to abortion, he joins conservatives in denouncing the killing of unborn children.

The fact that Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history is the main reason Hentoff did not vote for Obama in 2008 and has already called for his defeat in 2012.

Hentoff sees hope for the unborn in a new tactic states are using to protect children.

It began in Nebraska, where Gov. Dave Heineman recently signed into law the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

From a recent column Hentoff:
For the first time in any state legislature, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act: "Prohibits abortion after 20 weeks gestation except when the mother has a condition which so complicates her medical condition as to necessitate the abortion of her pregnancy to avert death or to avert serious risk of substantial or irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function."

This year, as versions of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act are introduced in a number of state legislatures, there will obviously be fierce opposition from local, state and national pro-choice organizations and political figures, as well as President Obama. I expect, however, that this Nebraska breakthrough for pro-lifers may well become law in certain states.

Sen. Toomey blasts Obama's latest deficit budget

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) today expressed disappointment with President Obama's latest deficit budget proposal for fiscal year 2012.

From Toomey's office:
"As families across America are cutting back to live within their means, President Obama's budget falls well short in the area of belt tightening. The president's proposed budget for fiscal year 2012 puts taxpayers on the hook for an astonishing $3.73 trillion in spending, increasing the debt by $1.1 trillion on top of a record breaking $1.6 trillion deficit for fiscal year 2011.

"The federal government is suffering from a spending addiction, and if our leaders don’t deal with this problem soon, we all will pay the price. The president's five-year non-security, discretionary spending freeze is too little too late. After a 25% increase in spending since 2008, the president has to offer much more aggressive reductions if we are ever going to get our spending under control.

"To make matters worse, the president's budget increases taxes and completely ignores the drivers of the country's deficit problem — the entitlement programs. As we approach the statutory federal debt limit, it's unfortunate that the president wants Congress to increase it without any budget reforms. Instead, his proposed budget kicks the can down the road while piling higher deficits on our already exploding federal debt.

"We cannot borrow, spend and tax our way to prosperity. The best thing we can do for job creation is keep taxes low and return fiscal responsibility to our government. I had hoped that the president would have taken the steps necessary to put our government on a sustainable fiscal trajectory. Unfortunately, the president's budget represents a failure of leadership at a time when leadership is desperately needed."

Ryan Costello named Chester County commissioner

Chester County Recorder of Deeds Ryan Costello got a promotion today.

Costello is the newest member of the Chester County Board of Commissioners, picked from 7 finalists who were interviewed for the post by the county's judges.

Costello, a Republican, will fill the unexpired term of Carol Aichele, who recently joined Gov. Tom Corbett's cabinet.

"I am honored to have earned the confidence and unanimous support of the board of judges to serve as interim Commissioner," Costello told The Mercury shortly after the announcement was made Thursday evening.

Aichele's term runs until the end of the year. Costello is a candidate for a full four-year term on the three-member commissioners' board.

The other two commissioners, Republican Terence Farrell and Democrat Kathi Cozzone, have also announced plans to seek re-election.

Each political party will nominate two candidates in the May primary and the top three vote-getters in the November general election will win seats on the Board of Commissioners.

Republicans have always held the majority on the commissioners' board and a Farrell-Costello team would have the advantage going into November.

"Clearly it is important for voters to have information readily available to them and gain a better understanding of what is taking place in Harrisburg, as well as around the district," Scarnati said. "This is just another means to better notify the public of current actions."

Scarnati said his Twitter account will allow him to better communicate with voters in real time, while his Facebook page gives constituents the ability to view current photos, videos and audio files.

Medaglia launches website for state Senate run

Republican Larry Medaglia Jr. has launched a website in support of his campaign for Pennsylvania's 11th state Senate District, which covers most of Berks County.

The special election to fill the unexpired term of the late Sen. Mike O'Pake is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15.

Medaglia's campaign theme is: "The People's Choice for State Senate."

The current Berks County Register of Wills and former Berks Republican Party chairman, Medaglia is pushing four major issues: 1) Property Tax Elimination 2) Economic Growth and Job Creation 3) Reforming State Government and 4) Improving Basic Education

"This campaign is about the future of our community - a future where government leaders must be willing to make difficult choices and truly serve the community by lowering the tax burden and focusing resources on creating economic opportunities for everyone," Medaglia states on the website.

Medaglia's opponent is former Berks County Commissioner Judy Schwank, who voted to raise property taxes by 34% before leaving office four years ago.

Although Democrats enjoy a voter-registration advantage because the City of Reading is part of the 11th Senatorial District, Medaglia has a good chance of winning the election because he has waged successful countywide campaigns and the Democratic Party is split in its support of Schwank.

Many party loyalists wanted state Rep. Dante Santoni Jr., an 18-year veteran of Harrisburg, to be the candidate. Santoni's 126th House District is part of the 11th Senate District and Santoni is used to running campaigns and winning.

Schwank hasn't run for political office in more than eight years.

A party insider tells me Santoni and his supporters are very bitter at the way the party leaders picked a candidate and support for Schwank among active party workers is weak.
