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.

The stark reality of global warming will soon overwhelm all the nutcase science deniers of the Republican Party.

When that happens it’s “game over” for the GOP. 
Democrats could have pushed hard for remedies to global warming. They didn't because politicians live for the next election cycle and jobs, not global warming, is on the minds of voters. (Al Gore campaigned on global warming but we had full employment back then.) When global warming takes center stage on everyone’s mind, everyone's mind; Democrats can easily rally to have a “War on
global Warming”.
But the Republicans can’t escape from the cement shoes of their anti-science religious extremist base.

The "mainstream press" occasionally hints at global warming:

Extreme weather from global warming affects every part of the USA.

Like many US residents I have relatives and friends in several states. My relatives in Colorado, Montana and Arizona have drought conditions most of the time with bouts of extreme precipitation and mudslides and/or deep snowfalls.

My relatives in Florida contend with the hurricanes, drought and deluges like we have here in Pennsylvania. Central USA already has the most extreme weather on the planet and it’s getting even more extreme. God help those people.

Heat waves, flooding and extreme snowfalls are becoming ordinary events here in the Mid-Atlantic States. The fire season out West has changed from a few weeks in the summer less than a decade ago to almost all year long in the last few years. 

“And the sky’s are not cloudy all day” doesn't fit at home on the range anymore. The sky is often overcast from a fire.

The state forest service is spending about $1.5 million a day to fight the blazes, officials say. Budget cuts and lax preventive measures are contributing factors.

A 200 foot tall wall of fire coming toward your home has got to be more frightening than the arsons, hurricanes and floods we have dealt with in Coatesville. I have relatives and friends out West that live with the constant threat of forest fires. I’m not really sure how my friends in Bastrop, TX are doing. On Monday their home was still there.
The strong aversion the ordinary press and especially TV news of linking extreme weather with global warming is beginning to crack. Someday soon even the relentless anti-science propaganda from the Koch Brothers and fossil energy cartels will be swept away by the harsh reality of global warming.   
When that happens and the destructive path we are on sinks in; a public sense of general panic will bring down the science deniers and sweep away their Republican Party brokers. Hopefully, that will happen very soon; before it really is too late.
