Pope's visit and state of emergency?

Levittown has just declared a state of emergency so they're prepared in case the pope's visit causes chaos.  I wonder if RP should do the same?  I'm picturing tons of people swarming the two train stations & causing all sorts of problems.  Has anything been said at council meetings?See More

Anyone have the article about PSSA scores in Ridley this year?

Extremely frustrated with inconsiderate neighbors!

I consider my family to be the ideal neighbor. We keep to ourselves, we don't hold loud parties either inside or outside our home. We never…

Rights are an individual concept. There is no such thing as group rights. A right is the… Continue

The 2016 Presidential Election

Bad news, folks. Going forward I am going to take money out of each of your paychecks and give it to someone else, tell you what health care you must have- regardless of if you want or need it, bail out bankrupt businesses, make sure some people investing in their college education do not have to pay interest on loans, and no one who is irresponsible or challenged by life's obstacles are liable for losing their home and I'm going to use your money to do it. And you have no say about… Continue
