      Keystone,

      You underscore my point completely.

      Because GDCs are so multiply over taxed, we can’t afford “protection.” The bad guy know there is a huge response time.

      Thank your local township and PA Rep. Rosemary Brown for taking donations for Act 180.

    Thank Goodness! No nuns were reported!

    There is a lot more these 15 or 20 stories about bank robberies than bad jokes and “cut & paste reporting.”

    Has the crime climate switched to a new breed? Notice the PA Troopers are releasing the crimes more. At an average of OVER $100K per year per trooper, cars and benes included, they must now enlist the GDCs.

    It means the current system of relying on only Troopers to fight drugs and drug financing (bank hiests) had been broken. THANKS to Harrisburg and support there for the “community” Act 180, we have few or NO LOCAL POLICING. But we do have high taxes and astronomical H. O. A. fees and Expanded police response time.

      I think the nuns were busy removing trees with chainsaws (see the other story)…

      Since there was no comment section there, someone may want to point out the foolishness of operating a chainsaw to the nun, while wearing baggy clothing that’s easily caught in the gears.
