    about Santorum's bill. There are many odious things about Pious Rick, but this one did not get the attention it deserved. We can't rely on our brain-dead national media to explain just how radical this bill, and the philosophy behind it, are. The GOP really, truly is willing to destroy basic government functions that keep us all safe as long as it helps one of their campaign donors make more profit (on the backs of taxpayers, of course). I don't live anywhere near Pennsylvania, but I had a nice celebratory drink when Santorum was defeated. Good riddance.

      blowback against P'Ricks nefarious political butt-scratching. The AOPA, many marine interests, and lots of plain 'zens reacted very strongly and began a lobbying effort that stuffed ol' P'Rick.

      Don't y'all forget that this same asshole has a long history of crony-helping bone-headed political moves.
      And unfortunately, he may be pretty well gone now, but his kind have metastisized on our political landscape and infect even more locales today.
