Veteran’s Day is being observed on Monday. Wouldn’t it be nice if all employers who have employees who are veterans working for them would give them a day off with pay? They deserve that.

This is reference to Lattanzio’s that was on Moser Road. Lil, you had one of the the best sandwich shops around and I miss your tuna grinders. So can anybody tell me where you can get a good tuna grinder sandwich because I certainly can’t find one since Lil made hers and also Nick’s in Stowe, their hoagies were out of this world too.
I pray that now the Democrats are happy since they won the House. Maybe now they will be less angry and hateful and will work instead of forming mobs. Pray for America.
The Democrats win for their candidates by all of them sticking together and all of them voting for
their candidates even if they are the wrong ones. If the Republicans would do that and stand behind whoever their candidate is whether he’s good or bad and just stay behind him we wouldn’t be stuck now with another six years of Casey who just keeps raising taxes and does nothing to help the people. We would have Lou Barletta in there.
The blue wave has arrived because of a foolish president. Winning the House of Representatives will start every investigation possible on Trump. He will have to defend himself for the next two years. The House will send bills to the Senate on health care and fair tax cuts for the middle class which will be very difficult not to pass. It’s time the middle class and the poor were represented. Yes the blue wave has arrived.
As for the Democrats winning the House in the midterms the Republicans had one thing going against them. There was no Electoral College to help make winners out of losers.
And once again ignorance has prevailed election day in Pennsylvania.
This is to Jim Fitch. Maybe your wife wasn’t chastising you for being careless, maybe she was just indicating that some people, a lot of us, need to have our feet firmly planted on the ground.
Trump has played a record amount of golf and he has campaigned all over the country but he’s never visited our soldiers in the combat zone.
From Dr. Thomas Sowell, “No society has ever thrived because it had a large and growing class of parasites living off of those who produce.”
Well at least we got rid of
some of Donnie’s boys but I hope we never again have to endure so much nasty political advertising especially by the Republicans.

Now that the election is over we don’t have to watch all the trash-talking commercials they show 50 times a day station after station. Now all we need is the election signs in town taken down. We have enough trash in Pottstown.
While doing a reading therapy at school with Rufus a student once asked me if all fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time?” I replied “No, there is an endless series of fairy tales that start with ‘If elected I promise to .... ’”
I hope the crybaby sore loser Democrats are happy now that they won the House and will finally ac- cept the fact that Clinton lost in 2016. I hope they will respect and honor the president of the United States.
I have never seen such a display of inconsiderate adults at the election place in Upper Pottsgrove. If you have suggestions or want to complain you can always volunteer to work the polls and see how much work it takes.
Has anyone noticed how Campbell Soup has downsized the cans of soup? It’s ridiculous. How greedy can you get? Instead of one can you need three to make up for what it used to be because the cans are so small. How greedy can Campbell’s be?
Hey Jay Miller how many illegal immigrants won the Nobel Peace Prize this year? Anyway they weren’t immigrants, they were Americans. We are all descended from immigrants mostly, either immigrants or descended from them.
This is in reply to the Sound Off from someone who commented that they started their Christmas shopping and everything that they picked up was made in China. Well there is great store in Boyertown called Patsy’s Potpourri of Gifts. I think it’s been there pretty long, everything’s made in the USA and local artisans. It truly is amazing to see all the beautiful and unique things that are made in the USA. It’s a great shop and you should check it out.
