Safety alert for Luzerne County

Residents are advised to keep their children and pets indoors on Monday. When outdoors it is recommended to wear bright orange clothing and a kevlar vest. At particular risk are elderly attorneys that resemble game birds.


Dick Cheney will be flying into town about 4 p.m. Monday to speak at a private fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Don Sherwood, R-Tunkhannock. The event will begin at 5 p.m. at the Dallas home of Harold Flack, president of Diamond Manufacturing.
But he won’t be staying long. Cheney will be departing the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport at 6:30 p.m., according to a schedule released by his office.

Last October, Cheney’s visit to the area caused traffic tie-ups on I-81 and Route 309. He came to Luzerne County for a similar fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum in which $300,000 was raised.
Monday’s invitation-only fundraiser costs $1,000 for individuals attending alone and $1,500 per couple, according to Sherwood’s office.

Below is a picture of Don Sherwood soliciting a campaign contribution from a reluctant supporter.

Dick Cheney is a GREAT VP. Though you are reluctant to admit, he's also probably the most well-spoken and politically savy.

And I believe that, because of his 5 miltary deferments, he never learned to properly sight a firearm, therefore, is a manace to good hunters everywhere.
You think he is so great, you go hunting with him!

Dick Cheney is also a great shot. He hit a lawyer at 100 yards - in the heart.

Yes, he is well-spoken and politically savvy, if you mean that he knows how to spout the keywords and talking points that the dittoheads are pre-programmed to respond to. But to everyone else, he sounds like a snarling, grunting idiot, morally bankrupt, devoid of compassion, contemptuous of the American people and the rest of the world.

In Wyoming they call him Dickie The Sissie.

In DC, it is Dickie The Shooter.

Everywhere else, Dickie The Draft-Dodger.

Me and Thelma Jean were waitin on the side of the road hoping that the VP would come by. Too bad we didn't see him--I know you commies hate him but I sleep better at night knowing that our counry is in the hands of such a strong and compassionate leader...and the same goes for Mr. SHerwood and our Sainted Sen. Santorum...despite the lies that the freaky liberals try to tell about both of these God Fearing Men. Damn Liberals--go to HELL!

I meant "Mean Old Man." Don't take this correction as a sign of weakness.

RE: DB Echo: First off, I don't need to blog for the simple reason that we Conservatives have a fine young man like Dr. Rick who covers all the bases. Second, unlike all of the COmmie bloggers, I have other things to do with my time, damn it!! My wife Thelma Jean keeps me hopping all day long--right now I have to go out and shingle up the chicken coupe so the godamned chickens don't get all wet!!! THen I have to take the trusty Remington to russle up some game for Thelma Jean to cook in the frying pan--after that maybe I'll get a minute or two to listen to good ol Rush on the Philco--and then its back to work. Work--that's something you hippy freak panzy flower power chairman mao loving commie liberals have no idea of!! MY last word is that I will continue to counter the remarks made on this Commie run site just to keep an even playing field!!! TO believe what you guys say one would think that our Sainted Sen. Santorum is nothing but a tool of big business and a facist!!! We all know that he is one of the champions of the little guy!!! Maybe all you Commies should write for Walt Disney--he specialized in make believe!!! Bastards!!!!!
