Re: “Affordable-housing advocates want Pittsburgh to buy Penn Plaza to maintain affordable units

The City has an obligation to provide fair and affordable housing? since when; that's news to the taxpayers!
OK...so LG bought the property expecting the make a return, they bought it legally and did everything by the book. Imagine if we stopped every developer from tearing down an old crap building.
They only way they sell it is if they get a sizable return on their investment, so if the city were to buy it and basically give it to the residents, it would be the single worst investment/use of the public's money...let alone illegal. SO...can we please move on, this Penn Plaza thing is so over.

IF YOU CANT AFFORD WHERE YOU LIVE, YOU MOVE. ITS UP TO YOU, TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH YOU CAN AFFORD. ITS UP TO YOU TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR CHOICES, NOT THE GOVERNMENT.

Also, Socialized medicine does NOT work! There is NO right to health care in the US Constitution!

Re: “Pittsburgh's Black Forge Coffee to continue carrying controversial loyalty punch cards

Is it tasteless? In a way, yes - no one should ever be taking death lightly in this day and age when gun violence is killing kids.

Is it funny? Again, in its own way. If that's what makes you smile, then sure - go pick up a card.

Is it illegal? Hell, no. If you don't like it, don't go there. Don't pick up the punch card and don't redeem it for the reward.

Easy enough to do, right?

Advocating for the death of other Human Beings is hardly free speech.

Re: “Trump Puppet highlights Pittsburgh's weekly Tuesdays With Toomey protest

This kind of rhetoric is so devisive to our country, this has to stop. This type of action is very anti-American and does not help anyone. The socialist Democratic party lost, get used to it.It's time to move forward, unite and get to work. be positive.

Re: “Report shows Pennsylvania fracking companies paying few fines for environmental infractions

Very true, meanwhile the mainstream media does nothing to report on such environmental issues of substance. It's insane to see the only solution for communities that have contaminated water... and by contaminated they really mean "Un-Drinkable" umm, "poisoned?" perhaps "life-threatening" is too ship in BOTTLED WATER... well, golly gee guys, thats a great solution too, as if we dont have enough plastic in the world (and places to put it) already. We need to start organizing and systematically hold these corporations accountable. Thank you for the article and for those who are working to change this.

Re: “PETA marks World Water Day with demonstration in Downtown Pittsburgh

I don't know who "Pittsburgh Dad" is, but I would tell them to get over themselves. Actually solving problems is hard, but it can get results. Protesting is easy, but it's mostly just narcissistic attention-seeking that solves nothing.

Pittsburgh Dad, what would you like to tell these women?

Re: “PETA marks World Water Day with demonstration in Downtown Pittsburgh

"Using the naked female form in campaigns is nothing new for PETA. The organization has been criticized for sexualizing women in its campaigns before."

It's always good to see the PC Police turning on each other. No wonder the left is imploding.
