  2. What is wrong with these LCE cops? These poor businesses are just trying to feed their families and make a living. There are real criminals out there committing real crimes. Go be a real cop; stop being a tax collector for the Governor.

  3. This Governor is Evil. He is from Delaware and only used PA as a cash cow. Don't forget to Vote for the new ammendment limiting the next Governor's powers to 20 days during an emergency instead of YEARS. Save PA!
