life with sticks in one's head

Matter of time

Yesterday paved the way for one of my worst fears to come true. As of the state inaugural, the GOP will occupy the Governor’s mansion and majorities in both houses of the legislature. What do I fear? State law banning abortion. Underfunding of state oversight groups. Underfunding or complete elimination of urban programs offering opportunity and/or assistance. Privatization of public schools. Tax cuts, spending and debt ceilings, and possible state bankruptcy.

Maybe this is just my fear talking, but PA has always been, but for the large populations of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, a red state. We’ll see how much we bleed.

Yes, I am scared and that may be influencing the content of this post.
