If Queen Hillary came to Southeastern Community College, woe be unto those needing to go to the bathroom while locked down. Who among our local single party elite would be allowed the honor of being in Queen's presence?

Washington Crossed the Delaware River in Buck's County, PA
I see once again the total lack of a competent understanding of geography and history has escaped the Hawkeye's sports writer covering the local student headed to the U.S. Military Academy located at West Point, N.Y. on the Hudson River.
On Saturday sports writer Levins opined, "...knew the minute he stepped foot on the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., that he had found his new home for the next decade.
After all, the place was founded by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, two of the country's Founding Fathers. It is built on the banks of the Delaware River, where Washington made his famous crossing to ambush the Redcoats during the Revolutionary War."
What a mess this writer made of this student athlete's personal achievement of excellence is then only compounded by suggesting this Plebe will need 10 years to graduate.
All I can surmise is Levins has been helping himself to Mike Sweet's pot brownies by the mitt full.
Rest assured America's best graduate from West Point in far less than 10 years. And unlike the has-been retreads on South Main, they are all focused, skilled in geography, world affairs and understanding the meaning of freedom.

Mile High's Newest Ambulance Chaser - Bruce Bailey
Colorado Chickens Flee State
) -Former Congressman Bruce Braley has left Iowa and moved to Denver, Colorado.
In a news release issued Thursday, Leventhal & Puga, P.C. announced Braley has joined the firm."
Former President of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Association, Congressman and failed candidate for the U. S. Senate Bruce Braley is running for the high ground.
Bruce "Bailey's" miserable U. S. Senate campaign has rendered him a Hawkeye State laughing stock. Ditch the Iowa lake house under siege by free range chickens and move up.
How long Bruce Bailey will tailgate ambulances
at a greater altitude remains to be seen. The siren call of making America safe for trial lawyers may find Bruce seeking a seat in Congress from Colorado.
What Value the Ad Vertiser?
) - U.S. cable T.V. operator Cablevision Systems Corp (CVC.N) is planning to make an offer for the New York Daily News as early as this week, valuing the troubled tabloid at just $1, according to a person familiar with the matter."
Let us assume you were offered a huge flat screen television, the keys to the Nash and none of the Ad Vertiser's liabilities. Would you mail $1 and a signed contract to Kansas to assume ownership of the Burlington Ad Vertiser?

A Lesson from Two Midwestern States
Courtney's Vow to Get Even Bitch Slapped With New Prison Failure
"Eleven years ago no one could have predicted that Indiana would be a national leader for sound tax and fiscal policy
, with the 8th most competitive state business tax climate in the nation. Back in 2004 Indiana faced a massive budget shortfall and was ranked 38th among the 50 states for state and local tax burden."
Iowa has come a long way from the dark days of five years ago. State Senator Courtney's vow to get even with business had become a reality.
The joint governorship of Chet Culver and Senate majority leader Mike Gronstal had a majority in both houses of the legislature. They kept spending and raising taxes. Senator Courtney did his part cheering on prevailing wage union deals for state projects like the yet to be usable new prison in Ft. Madison.
Voters partially solved the problem in 2010. Governor Culver was defeated and the majority shifted in the Iowa House. Unfortunately the Iowa Senate still contains Tom Courtney along with Mike Gronstal as its majority leader.
If Indiana can do better, there is still room for improvement in Iowa. Send Senator Courtney and others like him home for good.
