It could cost Americans 20 percent more to get their bacon fixes as a deadline virus sweeps through the nation's hog barns. (Patch file photo)

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

The disease came from China! Aids came from Africa, other diseases come from Mexico but yet we letRead More people flood to this country and they bring those diseases with them!

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

all joking aside, the truth IS a dope!

Did you get your free coffee today DOPE? Its free so that falls right in your pricing level. HopeRead More you didn't spill it on your crotch and hurt yourself. We wouldn't want to be deprived of yet another generation of your degenerate family running around calling people dopes...

Yes but capitalism does not work that way, governments do not decide what/where businesses go (atRead More least not yet anyway, give them time...) BTW we have 2 here in Lansdale lol!

I don' t have an issue with PECO, it's PGW who's the thief.
John DiPrimio March 13, 2014 at 05:12 pm
why would you begrudge a poor family like the Roberts from earning a living? If they can buy theRead More water co, and gas co. just think how simple they will make our lives, just paying one bill for everything, and they can send out the same inept service tech to handle all the repairs, between 8 & 12 or 12 & 5. There ought to be a law.
Margaret French March 14, 2014 at 11:18 am
I dropped them YEARS ago when they only had cable. As soon as some other option was available I gotRead More the competitor. No way would I ever get Comcast and I know a lot of folks who switched from the to Verizon like I did. Like someone else said, if they were the last place to supply electric I would buy solar panels.
Parx Casino in Bensalem, where slots revenue was down 9.4 percent in February. (Patch file photo)

Wait, you're telling me that they're making many millions of dollars and that they simply made a bitRead More less last month? They still made a profit! Tell you what, report something when they start LOSING money, which will never happen, right? I find it difficult to worry about this since the money doesn't appear to be filtering back to any of the citizens, is it??
dwayne roberson March 7, 2014 at 05:40 pm
PA's new gas tax will have us next to California as the highest. Food, fuel, everything will costRead More more. Owebamacare taxes falling in line, higher insurance costs, inflation,.... people will have less and less. Slots were a good investment? Really? People need jobs, not slot machines when they don't have any freakin money! How do casinos function in socialist states? I guess we'll see.
Capt. Obvious March 10, 2014 at 12:39 pm
probably just starting the "poor us" publicity so that next year they can file bankruptcyRead More and screw everyone they owe, Trump style, and then come back with a new name a few months later and start over debt free.

T. Smith: Truthfully I didn't expect you to comment no less start an argument with me.
Vincent January 30, 2014 at 08:16 am
Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 10:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.

Stan - u should check your view settings. It seems like your comments contain a **** load ofRead More periods.
stanley seigler January 27, 2014 at 08:58 am
RE periods...PATCH could eliminate the periods if they would format the comment section to recognizeRead More paragraphs... ......................................................................................... apologies if periods annoy ...they are an attempt to recognizes paragraphs ......................................................................................... anyone, any suggestions? would '+++' be better??? ......................................................................................... BTW not sure if 'T' is 'bustin my whatever'...but i have no idea what view settings are or how to check them...

Just another Obamanation. A disgusting president.
Stephen D. Clark January 18, 2014 at 11:03 am
Baloney. The "disgusting" president was the one who falsely alleged a threat to theRead More national security of the United States in order to dishonestly justify the Invasion of Iraq, which condemned 4,486 American armed forces members (http://icasualties.org/) to futile deaths and sparked a conflagration that has consumed the lives of what has been scientifically estimated as well over a million Iraqis (http://www.globalresearch.ca/new-analysis-confirms-1-million-iraq-casualties/7950).

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.

How about not re-electing any more incumbents? Remember the D.R.I.P campaign? Don't ReelectRead More Incumbent Politicians.

Sorry folks but I just don't think it's fair to burden future generations with the debt ofRead More quantitative easing. I starting selling of quite a bit of my stocks for more tangible assets and most likely with sell of a fair amount more next week. I wish the best of luck to all of you.
