    LNP LIES!
       

        There is a lot of talk this election season about living in a “bubble.” If you live in Lancaster County there is no question you are living in a bubble – a bubble created by the Lancaster Newspapers. The bubble includes among too many items to list:
    – There is no corruption in Lancaster.  None!
    – Our Judges are honest, decent and fair.
    – There is no racial discrimination in hiring at the Lancaster Newspapers.
    – Our police officers are doing a great job!
    – There are not an outrageous number of unsolved murders in this county.
    – Our courts are fee of racial prejudice – as is the police department, the prison and the DA’s office – and actually, anything you can possibly name.
    – This is a conservative, religious and peaceful county.
    – Our coroner always tells the truth and nothing but the truth.
    – This county does not have enough shopping centers.
    – The convention center was absolutely necessary to revitalize downtown Lancaster and it’s working!
        The Lancaster Newspapers control the bubble. But, gasp, it’s about to burst because it just can’t hold all of the lies!
    Please check back later today.

    1. Which can all be summed up by mayor Dick’s statement found in the 9/6/10 Sunday News that “Frankly, the quality of life in Lancaster continues to improve” Do you have anything to say for yourself mayor Dick? Anything???

      – There is no corruption in Lancaster. None!
      There is corruption everywhere, but the better question is: what corruption are you referring to?

      – Our Judges are honest, decent and fair.
      Do you have proof that the judges are lying? Seems to me that they abide by the law when executing orders, judgements and sentences. If they weren’t they’d be arrested and/or removed from the bench. Contrary to popular belief, they actually do have someone who monitors them.

      – There is no racial discrimination in hiring at the Lancaster Newspapers.
      Do you have evidence that minorities applied and were refused based upon the color of their skin? How many minorities actually applied for LNP?

      – Our police officers are doing a great job!
      Can you prove that they are not?

      – There are not an outrageous number of unsolved murders in this county.
      No more than any other county of similar size. You think this is bad, you should check out Chester, York and Berks counties. But if there is something that you think the police can do better, please by all means, make it known. I’m sure your experience in homicide investigations would be helpful in letting the police know how to do it better.

      – Our courts are fee of racial prejudice – as is the police department, the prison and the DA’s office – and actually, anything you can possibly name.
      You’re right, the KKK has weekly hangings and all of the members of government are in on it.

      – This is a conservative, religious and peaceful county.
      Compared to our surrounding counties, yes, it is. But if you have different info, make it known.

      – Our coroner always tells the truth and nothing but the truth.
      Do you have evidence that he is lying? Why would they lie? How would it serve them? You mean to tell me that you think Dr. Ross, a practicing pathologist in several counties, would jeopardize his medical license to lie about x,y,z? And the coroner’s office is the least involved in all of the investigation. They chop people up, report a manner of death, repeat.

      – This county does not have enough shopping centers.
      Now that’s funny.

      – The convention center was absolutely necessary to revitalize downtown Lancaster and it’s working!
      Yes, the CC isn’t what they thought, but do you have any ideas to improve downtown? Or is it that all you are capable of is Monday Morning Quarterbacking what everyone else does? Throughout this site you never talk about what an “agency(s)” could do better with workable ideas. You are a conspiracy theorist, and a rather naive one at that. You have zero experience in any of the areas you critique, but you come off as if you’re an expert in the field. You dupe people into thinking you’re actually knowledgeable, but you have zero clue how anything works. The only one living in a bubble is you, you live in this fantasy bubble where everything is a conspiracy, you’re own Gotham City where you are the media Batman.

    3. Filth – you are using an anonymous proxy to hide your IP. I will allow it this once but not again. I have a stalker I’m dealing with and there is no reason to hide an IP. Thank you.

    4. The downtown Lancaster taxpayer-financed hotel and convention center is most definitely NOT working for the people who are paying for it!!!!!!! About six million taxpayer dollars are going into the “integrated facility” every year, yet only a few hundred thousand dollars of that actually end up in Lancaster City’s economy as a result. The truth is, the School District of Lancaster received far more benefit from the property when it was vacant than it does now, since the entire half city block is now tax-exempt.

      There are a half-dozen major vacancies in the first block of East King Street, where the hotel is located, and many more in the second. If this project were actually successful, there would be much more economic development as a result than a single Subway restaurant.

      Becky correctly predicted years ago that this project would cost taxpayers far more than it would return. There is most definitely NO “Monday morning quarterbacking” here, it’s more like “I Told You So!”.

    5. Do you have anything to say on this mayor Dick? Anything???

    6. The mayor has no desire to post on any site. Several years ago, I tried very hard to talk him into setting up his own blog, but he was never even slightly interested.

      The best way to catch the mayor is after a City Council meeting. If he attends, he will take the time to speak with just about anyone.

    7. The Dick has no desire to be questioned. What’s the difference between mayor Dick and a screen door? A screen door can be open.
