Home Alone

I’m a Chinese immigrant and I am familiar with the persecution of Falun Gong in China. I’m glad that some have found a place of refuge in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. It’s important for media to cover the continuous brutality against these innocent people and the hopeful movement of renouncing the CCP membership. I have come to realize the true character of the CCP and like almost 70 million now, have renounced my membership.

By quitting the Party, I appreciate and understand more deeply the sacrifices made by many so that I can live in the shadows of the Liberty Bell free from this regime.

Kamara should use the elders in his community to keep watch on their children. They could become useful as the safety officers. Crime and drugs are rampant a in this city and the higher-ups and the people we pay to protect us are part of the problem.

I have met many Liberian people driving a bus in the city. I found them to be people I would be proud to be with anytime.

Regarding Daniel Denvir’s recent article about the mayor’s intent to raise taxes:

The soda tax is stupid. Where will it stop? If people stop drinking soda, like the city says it wants, then it gets no tax money.

Everyone knows what is good or bad. It’s not the city’s job to police what we eat and drink. Cut the bloated city spending and there will be no budget problems. Otherwise, people will continue to flee to the suburbs. There are more than enough ways to reduce the deficit rather than taxing the over-taxed citizens. Nutter, I thought you were about “change.”

Go ahead, raise taxes, keep doing it. Continue to drive out businesses and anyone that actually works for a living. I grew up in Philadelphia and almost every person I know has left the city, tired of paying for the give-away programs for those who refuse to work.

The only problem will be who will be left to tax after anyone with any sense moves out of the city.

Regarding Tara Murtha’s profile of local songbird Essra Mohawk:

There is nobody that comes close to doing what Essra Mohawk does musically. Her music touches your soul and it’s about time she becomes a secret no more!
