    This could be good. Kids will learn to count (see: six pack), other weights and measure (see: quart, liter, etc.), and, perhaps, the difference between a fine merlot and cabernet sauvignon. What more could we ask? Oh, and some of the proceeds can be used to arm the principals. Don’t forget that.

    I just don’t understand why Tom Corporate…err…Tom Corbett, Space Cadet wants to sell off the three biggest cash cows that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has, including the Pennsylvania Lottery, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
    I understand that the PLCB turns over more than $500 million each year in profits to the General Fund. Where does Gov. Corbett expect to make up that shortfall if those profits instead go into the pockets of his fat cat buddies? Your taxes will go up!

    How much do you want to bet that Corbett will get a plush job with either the natural gas industry or the liquor industry after his term is up?
    If I had my way, Corbett would become Jerry Sandusky’s cellmate. I understand that Corbett took six-figure campaign contributions from Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile, while Corbett was the attorney general. Could that be why Corbett never prosecuted Sandusky??

    Good question. Very good question.

    Since I’m in Ohio, I didn’t understand the reference at first. Our governor is under fire (and lawsuits) by conservatives and liberals for diverting liquor profits to a “private jobs development program” and eliminating the state agency that had handled that. So far the local courts, with mostly Republican judges, have said OK. It’s on its way to the Ohio Supreme Court (6-1 Republican). At least he decided not to sell/lease the Ohio Turnpike.

    I thought that if you were 18 you could serve alcohol or bartend, but you can’t drink until 21.

    I agree with you 100% and I think it’s a question that must be asked before it’s too late. I’m guessing he’s going to get a high paid consultant job when he’s out of office, and most of the consulting will be done on the golf course. A recent letter to the editor by PIRG brought out that the British company which will be getting tens of millions of dollars to run the lottery has incorporated in Delaware so they can avoid paying PA taxes. If true, how’s that feel, voters?

    It also used to be that you couldn’t drink until you were 21, but you could get drafted, and get shot at when you were 18…

    Nearly all of our politicians are corrupt, and are the root of all this country’s problems. It is not specific to one party. They point fingers at each and wrestle around like the WWE and divert our attention away to keep the Washington cesspool running as is. Our national media, politicians, and all the party strategists live the high life and play on our stupidity and emotions and laugh all the way to the bank. Endless campaigns and mindless banter back and forth 24/7 continues to tear the country apart.

    Tigger you are extremely satire/sarcasm deficient. And it’s still illegal, under federal law, to sell/possess, etc. marijuana. Thanks to the end of prohibition, and the people who wanted to maintain their positions, we do not have a reasonable marijuana/hemp policy, which, when taxed, would bring revenue to the feds. Oh, that’s a TAX, forget it, right?
