Parking Fees Raised At PA Farm Show Complex

Welcome Farmers
As if things weren't bad enough for our farmers trying to make a living nowadays, Denny F writes from the flatlands that Harrisburg TV has just announced that the parking fees at the PA Farm Show Complex are being raised to $10.00.

Just heard on the local (Harrisburg) TV news last week, that parking fees for all events at the Farm Show Complex will increase to $10 in January.

Just in time for the 2010 Farm Show. Hasn't been all that long since they went from $5 to $8, now up they go again.

The excuse this time, is because the Complex is still in need of further upgrades and they need more money. The spokesperson did point out that admittance to the Farm Show itself, is still "free".
Personally, I thought it had already been nearly upgraded to death, the last time around?

interesting thoughts...

How many zeros in a billion???

This is too true to be funny . . .

The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether or not you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of it's releases.


A billion seconds ago it was 1959.


A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.


A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.


A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.


A billion dollars ago was only
8 hours and 20 minutes,
at the rate our government
is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain .. . .

let's take a look at New Orleans ... . ...

It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

Louisiana Senator,

Mary Landrieu(D)

is presently asking Congress for


to rebuild New Orleans . . . Interesting number . . .

what does it mean?


Well . . . if you are one of the 48 4,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman, and child)
you each get $516,528.


Or . . . if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.

or . . . if you are a family of four . . ...
your family gets $2,066,012.

Imagine, now $700 billion bailing out banks in the U.S. That's enough to fund complete medical care for every man, woman and child currently alive in the U.S .. for 11 years!!

$50 billion to bail out the auto industry??

Washington, D.C.


Ottawa, ON.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago...and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt...

We had the largest middle class in the world...
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened?

Can you spell 'politicians!'
