Stockholm Syndrome

I was recently watching one of my favorite shows, Always Sunny In Philadelphia. In one episode the main characters were held hostage by some local bullies and one of the hostages talked about Stockholm Syndrome and even began to exhibit symptoms. Stockholm Syndrome is where hostages who have been held for a long time begin to share the values and beliefs of those who are holding them captive. I have a very healthy disrespect for the main-stream media as water-carriers for the Democrats and liberal causes, but I have begun to feel sorry for them. I do believe that they may actually have Stockholm Syndrome.

Eminent Affront

There is good news and bad news behind this headline:

Crafton out $1.8 million over land dispute

First the good news…The Borough of Crafton (near Pittsburgh, PA) was ordered to pay $1.8 million to the previous owners of a property that the Borough seized through eminent domain in 1999.  The judgement included $1 million for the property, approx. $600,000 in interest, and $200,000 in legal fees. 

Update: Liberal Alters – Unions

Unions and local Democrat politicians have devised wicked schemes to favor union companies from minimum wage rates, to prevailing wage requirement, to Project Labor Agreements (prevent non-union companies from bidding on publicly funded projects). Allegheny County (Pittsburgh area) has reached a new low with the latest tactic. Rather than their usual playbook favoring union shops, they now are going directly after local businesses that are not unionized.
