    The Wyoming Valley is transitioning to a huge ghetto as the invasion of scum from NY and NJ continues unabated! Sad commentary on a community in full decline!!

      Cash For Trash deals created this mess, and the need to house the trash keeps them coming in droves.

      Lookit what they get, here: free housing (or, nearly free), monthly cash stipends, free health care, free dental care, free vision, free food, free utilities……………and, all they need to do is ask for it.

      Step 1: return all Cash For Trash revenue
      Step 2: round up all of the transplanted trash and place them all on a charter bus
      Step 3: drive them all back to Center City Philadelphia, NYC, and Harrisburg, and unload the bus (forcibly, if necessary)
      Step 4: abolish Section 8 housing
