Interesting fact......

Fetterman won all 67 counties Pennsylvania I hope the PA DNC takes note. They are out of step with what PA voters want.

Note: I do not know how to place link.

Why I'm voting for John Fetterman in PA's primary.

First of all let me state that I have always been a Fetterman supporter. Now my reason along with my story.

Pennsylvania has a rent rebate for qualified residents of which I am one. My income qualifies me for a $500.00 rebate which helps me tremendously.

Last year with help of a friend, I filled out the required paperwork and sent it along with other required income papers and a certification from company that owns the building I live in as to how much I paid in rent to them for the year 2020. All of this was done by the end of February in plenty of time for them to process my claim so I would get my money on July 1, 2021.

Around the end of April I received a letter from the state department that issues the rent rebates telling me that certain information was missing from certification paper from the company that I rented from and I should send that in or fax them the needed information so they could process my claim. I immediately took the letter from them to the resident manager asking to have her fax the missing information and I would send a hard copy of missing information also. After this was done I was satisfied that I would receive my rebate from the state.

July 1st came and went and I did not receive the rebate money. I thought well it's taking longer because of the missing information and so I wasn't too worried although I was disappointed it was taking so long.

Then, about the middle of September I received a letter stating that I was not getting the rebate money because I had not sent in the missing information. I was so angry I was spitting nails. The letter also said I could file an appeal in the next 30 days. So I went to the website that was states in the letter to file an appeal. Once I clicked on the website the info to file an appeal was so confusing to me that I just broke down and cried. I am not that smart when it comes to certain things so I just gave up vowed that next year when I file for the rebate I will make sure all the info is complete.

So now in 2022 I received my rent rebate form I'm still upset about last year's rebate money that I start thinking there has to be someone that can help me. Now both my state rep.and my federal rep are republicans so they are both useless and they are orange face supporters.

I'm guessing by now you realize who I turn to for help, yep, I emailed our democratic Lt. Governor, John Fetterman. That was about 1 month ago that I told him my story of what happened to me and my rent rebate.

I am happy to say 2020 rent rebate money is now in my bank account and I am sending the Fetterman campaign a contribution. And that's one of the many reasons I am voting for a man that wants to help those of us that may not count to others but counts to him. He is a man of the people.

I am proof that being vaxed and boosted work.

My daughter tested positive for covid last Monday. I was with her for 3 hours last Sunday. We hugged kissed and talked side by side. Yes, she has been vaxed but no booster and is doing great. Yes she is in quarantine with only minor symptoms.

I am fine and am living proof that vaccines and boosters work.

My belief

The one thing in this world that I truly believe is the truth always wins in the end. Yes it is true that a lie will be half way around the world before the truth gets it's pants on, but it does get it's pants on and when it does it spares no one. The end for trump and his gang of enablers will not be pretty. Trump started this and it will end with him.

It was long time before people came to understand who what Hitler was, but it did come and the end was not pretty.

Got my second covid vaccine yesterday.

Felt good when I woke up, but suddenly seem to be very, very tied and achey. Took my tramadol that my pain doctor prescribed for my chronic back pain. I hope that's all of the side effects for me. I feel very lucky.

Got my 1st vaccine shot a little while ago.

No problems. There were several people getting their 2nd shots. The more the better so we can kick this virus in the arse.

Tried for 4 weeks to get this shot, so don't get discouraged. Since there's another company coming out with a vaccine things should loosen up.

I'm sending good vibes your way and wishing all of my DU family the best.

I'm so happy because I got a call to get my 1st vaccine shot.

Been trying to get signed up and I finally hit the jackpot. I could hardly answer the questions they asked because I was so happy.

Some people never learn.

For some people with a diagnose of incurable cancer it's a chance for them to take a long good look at their life and ask themselves what could've I done better or how can I use the time I have to make amends to those who I've wronged.

Lee Atwater was the campaign manager when George H. Bush ran for president against Michael Dukakis. Atwater ran a very dirty and nasty campaign. He was a mentor for the likes of Roger Stone and Karl Rove, so one can just imagine how bad it was. Atwater used fear and shame against not only Dukakis, but is wife Kitty.

After Bush won the election, Atwater was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer. Knowing he had few months to live he tried to make up for what he had done to the Dukakis family by apologizing for what he did to their family.

Rush Limbaugh knew what he was doing and more then likely was enjoying his performance. He considered himself a showman. I don't think he regretted anything and that is the shame of it all. Life has way of making one pay for what we sow.
