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.

My favorite so far in Bruce Springsteen’s “Wrecking Ball” is “Jack of All Trades”.

It reminds me of my Dad mostly. Without thinking about it much I know how to fix stuff, it’s just from watching him work as a boy. Like a lot of people who lived through the great depression he could remodel his house, fix nearly everything and grow food for his family.

My dad’s hero was Franklin Delano Roosevelt. If you ever heard my dad talk about his days in the mill before the unions you would know why. FDR brought an end to the 70 hours a week with the occasional extra that brought it to an 82 hour week, with no vacation time. FDR gave the unions the power to make the 40 hour work week stick.
Since President Reagan’s time the Republicans have been knocking down everything that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt put in place, so now we are back to depression times.
The fat cat robber barons and banks were the easy target of angry people in the first Great Depression.  Bank robbers like John Dillinger and Willie Sutton were folk heroes of the working man. The same kind of fat cat Wall Street people caused this depression but the anger is not narrowly directed at them.  Even though President Obama wasn’t around when the economy crashed some mostly old white men blame this depression on a Black President.

One very big reason for the Department of Justice to get of their asses and prosecute investment bankers is that lot of people would probably cheer someone who violently brought down the current crop of investment bankers.
In his song, “Jack of All Trades” Bruce Springsteen writes:
If I had me a gun, I'd find the bastards and shoot 'em on sight
The thing is most Americans do have a gun. We are one of the most heavily armed countries in the world; “U.S.most armed country with 90 guns per 100 people
