A Commonwealth Court Judge has ruled Jason Altmire stays on the ballot.  Mark Critz challenged the residency of an Altmire staffer who circulated nominating petitions.  Documents were presented at Friday's hearing showing both residences.  If it had been me I'd have gone with where she watches TV.  From the Critz camp (Mike Mikus):

"We disagree with the judge's decision and are currently exploring our legal options. It was clear from the beginning that the Altmire campaign violated the law in numerous instances and the fact that they withdrew approximately 400 signatures - nearly 25 percent of the total they submitted - demonstrates that our case is very strong."

Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates (of which I'm a Board member) is looking to hire someone for healthcare financing.  We are seeking a person with experience with Medicaid, a Pennsylvania department or legislative body with strong research and relationship building skills.

Equality Pennsylvania is urging everyone to sign a petition urging Erie Mayor Joe Sinnott to support marriage equality.  Sign it here.

Extreme, violent weather killed 38 more people last week.  Idiots continue claiming climate change isn't happening while we're witnessing the results constantly.  Isn't it too bad that people are dying because of those who choose to live in a fantasy world?  Meanwhile morons like Ron Paul say the corporate sponsored weather fatalities are too bad, the government shouldn't pay for it.  He is right about one thing:  it's the business community which needs to pony up and pay.

Indiana wants to give homeowners permission to kill cops.  The NRA supports the police assassination bill.

The Catholic Church, the folks who brought us the Dark Ages and the Inquisition, think they are dictating morality to us by insisting that contraception is evil.  These are the very same people who thought priests molesting boys was OK.  So much so that Cardinal Bevilacqua had a list of pedophile priests shredded and Allentown Bishop Edward Cullen conspired to do it.  So much for moral authority...

When women in Virginia dared stand up for their rights they were met by police in riot gear.  31 were arrested.  When are we going to begin arresting these paramilitary police who are violating our rights?

The Department of Justice is investigating Chesapeake Energy for violations of the Clean Water Act.  I should disclose that I've known about the DOJ investigation for about a year but chose not to divulge that knowledge so as not to jeopardize the investigation.  They have been on the ground in Pennsylvania for some time.

People in Dimock are finally going to discover what is in their water.  If you saw Gasland you know they light their tap water on fire.

Opponents of Voter ID presented 70,000 signatures today in Harrisburg.  Instead of creating jobs Republicans spent their time working on a bill to deprive thousands of their right to vote.  They based this on the assumption that people impersonate others at the polls.  This is a non existent problem.  Why don't these reactionaries just fess up and be honest about what they do?  Quit lying to us and be honest for once.  This isn't about dead people voting (because it doesn't happen) it's the Deny Democrats the Right to Vote Act.

Minnesota State Rep. Mary Franson thinks if you get food stamps you're a wild animal.  See, some of these whackos do say what they think.  The bad news is that they're batshit crazy.
