Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

McCain tells NRA members they should fear Obama and Clinton-LA Times
Just acknowledging that there could be “unscrupulous gun dealers” may be a no-no to the NRA higheracrchy.
From an NRA perspective, McCain and Obama hold nearly identical positions on gun control.
I believe that the NRA as it now exists cannot wholly support any presidential candidate.
Of course McCain could link guns with his “Republican Health Care Plan”. If you get really, really sick his "Republican Heath Care Plan" could authorize insurance payments for a revolver to shoot yourself in the head with; thus saving McCain’s precious insurance companies tons of cash.

Sen. John McCain moved to mend some political fences today, reaching out to reassure gun rights supporters that he will make a better president than his possible Democratic opponents.
At a stop at the annual meeting of National Rifle Assn. in Louisville, Ky., McCain acknowledged that he had differed with the group on some forms of gun regulation and on campaign financing. But the presumptive GOP presidential nominee insisted that he was a better choice that either Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, still battling for the Democratic nod.
"Over the years, I haven't agreed with the NRA on every issue," McCain said. But "those disagreements do not detract from my long record of support for the Second Amendment and the work we have done together to protect the rights of gun owners."
"We have real differences with the Democratic candidates for president," he said. "They have learned something since 2000. They don't talk about their plans for gun control. They claim to support hunters and gun owners. But just because they don't talk about gun control doesn't mean they won't support gun control. Let's be clear. If either Senator Clinton or Senator Obama is elected president, the rights of law-abiding gun owners will be at risk."
Obama, at a televised news conference in Watertown, S.D., responded to a question by saying that he expected the GOP to use gun-related issues in the campaign. He said he supported the individual right to bear arms.
"I do believe that there is nothing inconsistent with also saying…
