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.

Enronizing Education

Remember the “smartest boys in the room” from Enron? Those boys moved to Wall Street investment banking companies like Goldman Sachs after Enron went under. I think their “smarts” were pushing formerly legal businesses into organized crime as possible without going to prison for a long time.
I think a willingness to commit criminal acts “for the good of the company” is what separates “business ethics” from ethics. A criminal mind is now a sought after quality in Wall Street employees.
The GOP is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street and fossil fuel extraction companies. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett underscored the Republican Party’s relationship with fossil extraction companies and the Republican Party’s efforts to privatize education with this:
Unions are the Democratic Party’s only big money counter to the GOP Supreme Court’s stamp of approval on the laundering of secret campaign financing “Citizens United” decision. All the rest of the big money for political spending in the USA comes from US and foreign corporations.  
Strangling publicly funded secondary schools, cutting off funds to K to 12 public schools and pouring public funding into private “charter schools” are not unique to Pennsylvania. It’s a nationwide GOP effort to “Enronize” education in the USA and make education a money pot for Wall Street while at the same time eliminating public sector unions.
One of our nation’s greatest achievements is public education. That educated intelligent public helped to make the USA the manufacturing and innovative powerhouse that it once was.
That manufacturing powerhouse was transported to China by Reaganomics and “moving to the ideological middle” Democrats. Unions and middle class prosperity declined with the exportation of manufacturing.  The Republicans and their fat cat international partners flourished and the United States withered. 
Wall Street now sees no reason for the existence of intelligent American citizens; they make their money in China. Privatizing education by cutting public funds for higher education and creating charter schools will allow Wall Street to bleed the USA completely dry.
