Memorial Day and Independence Day are two days that are notorious in this country for honoring our freedom, and paying tribute to our military men and women, for the ultimate sacrifices, which they have made to preserve this freedom over the past 230 years. Channel 22 News reported the death of the second most decorated World War II Veteran, who lived in Stroudsburg. He was second only to Audey Murphy.
This hero passed away while his home was being placed on the auction block to be sold in a sheriff sale because he got behind on his taxes and bills.
For those in a position of authority, have they not the awareness of right and wrong with a compulsion to do right? It is tragic and unforgiving when degrading or humbling any living war veteran. What has happened to the conscience of the average America, who professes to be so righteous and claims to be sincere, while the likes of them allow such a disservice to be instilled upon a war hero as he approached the end of his life.
This war hero was why so many Americans without a conscience are living a life of freedom, which is questionable whether they’re deserving of it or not.

FROM BOB LOGUE: PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ALL THE COWARDLY SHEEPLE YOU KNOW:
FOR FOUR YEARS STOP VOLUNTEERS HAVE TRIED TO GET THE PUBLIC INTERESTED IN PROTECTING HOMES FROM BEING STOLEN BY VULTURES AIDED BY THE GOVERNMENT. THE SITUATION LIKE THE ONE DESCRIBED IN THE SUN GAZETTE ARTICLE ABOVE IS EXACTLY WHAT WE HAVE BEEN SCREAMING ABOUT. IT IS A DISGRACE THAT VETERANS--INCLUDING WAR HEROES FROM ALL WARS-- AND GOOD CITIZENS IN GENERAL HAVE BEEN LOSING THEIR HOMES BY THE THOUSANDS EVERY YEAR TO THIS CORRUPT PROPERTY TAX SYSTEM. THIS IS THE SYSTEM THAT GOVERNOR ED RENDELL, CANDIDATE LYNN SWANN AND MANY OF YOUR LEGISLATORS DEFEND AND WANT TO PRESERVE... MOST OF THE SHEEPLE OF PENNSYLVANIA ARE APPARENTLY TOO LAZY OR APATHETIC TO GET INVOLVED IN THE FIGHT. THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE DONE LITTLE OR NOTHING TO HELP ABOLISH PROPERTY TAXES ON PRIMARY RESIDENCES SHOULD BE ASHAMED.
SLEEP COMFORTABLY IN YOUR NICE COZY HOME THAT THIS VETERAN AND MANY OTHERS FOUGHT TO PRESERVE. YOU DON'T DESERVE THE SACRIFICE OF THIS SECOND MOST DECORATED HERO FROM WORLD WAR II...AND THE SACRIFICE OF MANY THOUSANDS MORE WHO HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED OR WERE WOUNDED TO PRESERVE YOUR FREEDOM AND PROTECT YOUR HOME.
NOW IN THEIR ADVANCED YEARS, THEY NEED OUR PENNSYLVANIANS TO FIGHT FOR THEM SO THEY CAN KEEP THEIR HOMES. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP ABOLISH PROPERTY TAXES ON PRIMARY RESIDENCES THAT CONTRIBUTED TO THE INDIGNITY HEAPED ON THIS WAR HERO? DID HE DESERVE TO LEAVE THIS EARTH KNOWING THAT HE WAS IN THE PROCESS OF LOSING HIS HOME? IMAGINE HOW ABANDONED AND UNAPPRECIATED HE MUST HAVE FELT. DID HE DESERVE THIS EMBARASSMENT? COULD THE STRAIN OF LOSING HIS HOME HAVE ADVANCED HIS DEATH?
GO BACK TO YOUR FOOTBALL GAME....SOAP OPERA OR OTHER 'VITAL' INTERESTS. THIS HERO WAS NOT RELATED TO YOU...SO WHY SHOULD YOU GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM? --BOB LOGUE, STOP PRIMARY RESIDENCE PROTECTION PLAN.

- The real Paul Clymer
I just found out that Paul Clymer voted to let the pig out of the barn.
Paul Clymer voted to suspend the rules so his buddies could give themselves the largest pay increase in the states history!
We need reform, not someone who will give in to his party leaders.
I will fight to lower spending by not taking a state car and not voting for a huge pension increase like Paul Clymer did!
I will fight to abolish our current property tax system.
We must change the way we fund our schools.
I will fight for limited government and support unlimited opportunity.
Please vote for change on November 7th
Vote for John Norvaisas for State Representative
