Re: “Pittsburgh Public-transit advocates and union groups protest Uber

The strike was January 28th, not in February. Proofread much?

Re: “Review: Ms. Lauryn Hill at Heinz Hall

Not just the more mature folks... probably 1/2 to 2/3 of the audience had better things to do with their lives than continue to wait for what in the absence of any announcements about the status of the concert...

Re: “Pittsburgh Public-transit advocates and union groups protest Uber

Nice job! First of all, who gives a crap what 35 losers think? Go get a real job. Transit advocacy group? What's their mission, to extort as much cash from taxpayers as possible? Yep, let's protest a company bringing tech jobs to Pittsburgh! Good move! Idiots.

The only thing UBER did wrong was to quit Trumps Commission. They chose not to rip off customers when the cabbies went on strike

Re: “Attorney says Pittsburgh activist/undocumented immigrant Martín Esquivel-Hernandez has been deported

He was operating a motor vehicle without a valid license and NO INSURANCE. Who would have paid if he would have struck a pedestrian who didn't own a car and had no insurance?? Guess what, no one. This POS is/was a danger and his removal insures that, for now, the streets are a little safer. If he is caught here again, no doubt it will be prosecuted as a felony.

Re: “More than 100 people protest over impending deportation of Martín Esquivel-Hernandez and recent ICE raids

Uber is a criminal enterprise. It's that simple.

Re: “Following arrest, media lists Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Joey Porter's past legal trouble but ignore those of the arresting officer

this was a crooked cop, sorry but cops are tents to uphold the law and are held to a higher standard, otherwise: turn in the badge.

until good cops stand up against bad cops, all cops shall remain suspect.

Re: “Hundreds protest at U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's office in Pittsburgh

Dear CityofBridges,

I am very sorry about your nephew. Please tell me how much I owe to this person I do not know and to whom I've not harmed. Are you going to expect the same 'contribution' from everyone or will you let the lazy people in our society off the hook?

Please know that the money you take from me was intended to go toward making a better life for my family. I don't know why I do not deserve the right to decide if the money I create from nothing goes toward them or if it should be turned over to people like you who will decide where it is best spent. Does it matter to you if I am saving my money for the day that someone in my family has a similar illness?

Blood cancer is terrible beyond description, especially for an infant. However, there are a great many less terrible situations that exist and who is to say where the line is drawn to determine when it is permissible to force someone to pay for another person's needs.

I've always wondered why forced charity should be limited to those people within our borders. If we task ourselves with caring for the world's population, lots and lots of people in this country will need to significantly lower their standard of living for the benefit of the truly poor - poor by the world's standard makes the poorest person in this country look like a king.

Re: “Hundreds protest at U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's office in Pittsburgh

Bill, you are SO RIGHT. I am a lawyer with so much AMBITION and have plenty of HARD WORK, STRESS, and INCOME. I am a PRODUCER! Then my ASSHOLE INFANT NEPHEW had the nerve (the absolute nerve!) to be a "drain on society" by DELIBERATELY DEVELOPING a fatal blood cancer in his 18 month old body. I can't believe his jerk parents aren't willing to pay the $1.2 million his treatment cost out of pocket. I mean, right now they are devastated by grief but HEY, if you are going to have a kid you should be PREPARED to pay millions of dollars for cancer treatment, have your home foreclosed and move under a bridge with the rest of your children. I AM TOTALLY THE VICTIM HERE, amirite?!?

Re: “Hundreds protest at U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's office in Pittsburgh

Dear Values Count, I was referring to Kim Evert's quote in the article where she voices her support of the ACA and Medicade expansion.

I pay much more in taxes than I receive from the government yet my vote only counts and much as those from people that contribute nothing and actually are a massive drain on our economic system. I believe everyone should carry their own weight. I believe that it is wrong to allow people who are burdens to society to determine how much they will steal in taxes from those who produce.

The ACA, Medicade, and the like exist to force the producers in the County to pay ransom to those more politically powerful. It has nothing to do with freedom or with the principals under which this Country was founded. The ratio of producers to takers has trended sharply toward there being fewer and fewer producers. Currently, the ratio is about 50-50. What do you plan to do when there are 9 takers for 1 producer? Is your plan to keep raising taxes on the producer and keep lowering expectations on the takers?

Sure there is income disparity. But there also is effort and ambition disparity. If we are going to share the wealth then we should also share the hard work, stress, and all the things that go behind earning a high income. I challenge to you randomly ask 10 small business owners if they think that the work ethic of people in general has declined in the last 10 or 20 years.

Concerning the protesters, it is easy to be generous with other people's money. That's why the liberals are so anxious to allow anybody into our Country. 'THEY DIDN'T BUILD THAT' so why should they care about giving it away?

These kids are so caught up in their virtue signalling, I bet they don't even know what they're protesting.

Re: “Hundreds protest at U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's office in Pittsburgh

Bill, if I understand your convoluted comment, you seem to be saying that freedom has something to do with economic production and that these protesters are wanting other to pay their way. I think you confuse a particular issue of economics with one of immigration and wind up not making much sense.

Re: “Hundreds protest at U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's office in Pittsburgh

The people protesting are demanding that others pay for their stuff. They are not happy with the results of a free country because freedom relieves the producers from this demand.

What the protestors want is a country not based on freedom but one based on using force to steal for the benefit of the politically powerful.

Re: “Pittsburgh undocumented immigrant could be released from detention next month

If Martn works in our community, then there is someone else who needs to be held accountable. It all works together to undercut a system based on laws that are being ignored.
It doesn't matter if you made it here and found a place for yourself if you did it illegally. Illegal is illegal is illegal.
What did you miss?
