Here we go again, PennDOT's stone chipping New Lancaster Valley Road. They tried it last year, it didn't work. What makes them think it'll work this year? What a waste of money. They could've just repaved the whole road.
What is really sad is that Barack Obama has 2 1/2 more years. God help us.
I put in the paper about my son being a senior and driving this year and paying $50 parking and someone put in there "Well, he could ride the bus for free." Yeah, he could, but he has to be at work right after school and he doesn't have time to ride the bus home and get to work, that costs him about an hour of work. It's not that we can't afford to pay the $50, the point is I think it's exuberant. I can't believe $50 for kids to drive to school. That, just, I think is too much. Yeah, we get that he doesn't have to drive, we get that part, but the kid would like to work and try to make some money after school to get ready for college.
This is to the person that put in the paper that the fire trucks couldn't get to that fire Saturday because of traffic. That's ridiculous. I was one of the first responders on one of the first trucks there. We were there in six minutes after that alarm went off. We had trucks, water out, spraying it down. So I don't know, there may have been some trucks that had trouble getting there after trucks backed up because we had a lot of people backing us up. On the street there was nowhere simply to put your truck, but there was no delay getting to that fire, I can guarantee you that.
Senate, you've been on vacation long enough. Get back to Washington and vote on this Republican-run House bill passed for immigration reform. Then get it sent to the president's desk for signing. At least the Republicans done something before they went on vacation. You can't say anything like that for the Senate.
