Marijuana and LGBTQ flags removed from Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s office
HARRISBURG, Pa. —
There’s a fight over flags at the State Capitol in Harrisburg.
Flags supporting the legalization of marijuana and LGBTQ rights were removed this week from outside and inside Pennsylvania Lt Gov. John Fetterman’s office.
The state Department of General Services said it removed the flags because of a provision in a budget bill passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature. The flags don’t qualify under the law to be displayed at the Capitol.
Fetterman said he’ll stop flying the flags when recreational marijuana is legalized and gay and transgender rights become protected under the law.
“To use state resources during a time of such upheaval to worry about two flags that I have hanging from my balcony seems odd,” Fetterman said.
The lieutenant governor said he’s not angry at the state workers who removed the flags because they’re caught in the middle of a political dispute.
Fetterman already put the flags back up once this week but they were taken down. A spokeswoman said he’ll probably put them back up again on Monday.
On Jan. 8, using her position as GOP state committee member, Pat Saylor called for the resignation and removal of our President Donald J. Trump.

Cruz: “We shouldn’t be talking about punishing women; we should affirm their dignity and the incredible gift they have to bring life into the world.”
HOUSTON, Texas – Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz issued the following statement in response to Donald Trump stating that if abortions were banned, women should be punished if they get an abortion:
“Once again Donald Trump has demonstrated that he hasn’t seriously thought through the issues, and he’ll say anything just to get attention. On the important issue of the sanctity of life, what’s far too often neglected is that being pro-life is not simply about the unborn child; it’s also about the mother — and creating a culture that respects her and embraces life. Of course we shouldn’t be talking about punishing women; we should affirm their dignity and the incredible gift they have to bring life into the world.”
By now most everyone has heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge raising funds for the ALS Association. Americans are a generous lot and they have gravitated to this fun effort. However in the midst of the excitement a cruel fact has been uncovered; one which crosses ethical lines and jerks us from entertainment back to reality. ALSA uses embryonic stem cells in its research efforts.
So what is one to do? Compassionate people certainly (continue reading)
