Rick Rolls On
Regarding Randy LoBasso’s http://www.philadelphiaweekly.com/news-and-opinion/cover-story/147811225.htmlwww.philadelphiaweekly.com/news-and-opinion/cover-story/147811225.html on the rise and fall of former-presidential nominee Rick Santorum:
Once Santorum exhausted states heavily populated with tea baggers, thrice-born Christians and intermarried first cousins, his message of extreme right-wing fanaticism met a brick wall. That anyone is surprised is itself a surprise, but moderate Americans need to be vigilant against his theocratic message. The snake has retreated to its dark hole, but is still alive!

Once again, the elite GOP and media has managed to carpet bomb and sway the voter with the negative ads from a moderate. Santorum is what most patriotic American voters are looking for in a conservative Republican. However, the GOP “crowned” Romney long ago. Santorum outdid everybody and did not compromise his core values. He is still on the ballots in many states and I hope people realize that they should vote for him.

Regarding Randy LoBasso’s story about legislation to deter attacks on SEPTA workers:
I understand that it is a problem, and I do not encourage people attacking SEPTA operators. However, this type of legislation basically states that people who belong to certain occupations are more worthy than others. Case in point, my mother is a nurse, but if someone attacked her, the perpetrator would not get as much of a penalty as if my mother was a police officer (and believe me, she has saved more lives than the average cop). People who assault should be sanctioned, but if we enhance penalties based on occupation, it basically makes it so that the lives of certain people are more important than others.
