Re: “While the spirit of the message may be there, the #Never movement is maddeningly misused on incumbents

I find myself having to choose between a fairly honest and ethical right-wing extremist and a corrupt corporate hack from the Rendell/Clinton machine.

If only the DFC hadn't inappropriately spent money attacking Sestak in the primary, I wouldn't be facing this choice. I used to be a fundraiser for the DFC, and they told everyone the money would be used against Republicans in key races.

The National Democratic Party has become a den of thieves. I don't know if I can vote for Toomey, but I absolutely can't vote for that fracker McGinty.

Re: “While the spirit of the message may be there, the #Never movement is maddeningly misused on incumbents

Nonsense. Your entire argument rests on the unwarranted assumption that the phrase refers only to a singular, isolated idea.
"Never" could refer to any number of things in this context, both logically and grammatically.
Never vote for.
Never support.
Never accept.
And on and on.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Paper's Democratic National Convention Live Blog: Day 4

As an African American I am ashamed about the support our community gives to those two narsasist bill and Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is our only option! I believe he will restore the manufacturing job that Hillary and the democrats took from me and my father more than 7 years ago. We need more jobs in the African American community and equally important we need more jobs in the American community!!!
Make America Great Again!!!
I'm going to do my part!!!

Re: “McGinty and Toomey pick up endorsements from gun-control advocacy groups in Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate race

Both of these dudes fully support your 2nd Amendment right to hunt. And they fully support your right to use a fully semi-automatic piece while hunting.

Re: “Wigle Whiskey starting crowdfund to create a new whiskey museum in Pittsburgh

I collect antique whiskey stuff and have many antique whiskey items from both MD and PA. I would be willing to lend some antique PA whiskey items for display. See "GunOwnerDan" in youtube to contact me.

Re: “Pittsburgh group protests vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence's workers'-rights history and policies

Absurd that people strictly adhere to party lines. I personally have voted for the democrat tickets my entire life, and this will be the first election I refuse to do so. I want an outsider who has been successful and not the face of my party who has been embroiled in more controversy and is a compulsive liar. I don't like Trump, but I do think that he has proven to be able to run multiple companies profitably (not all, but definitely multiple), so he has a better chance of doing that for our government. Especially moreso than someone who supposedly came out of the white house "penniless" and used her political weight for personal enrichment while jeopardizing our nation and lying to her people constantly. I don't believe in these lifelong politicians anymore, as they only serve those who benefit themselves. We need a drastic change and shake up -- and yes, change is scary - but look what it brought us last time we made history by electing our contry's first african-american president! Aside from his personal perogatives, I think he did a far better job than what we will get under a Clinton Administration, and that is indeed scary!

Re: “Hillary Clinton campaign focuses on women in Pennsylvania

She's a terrible candidate - and so is the right's pick this time too.
As a woman who was raped, I can not support someone who got a rapist off the sentencing he deserved. Hillary proudly acknowledged she won the case, yet she claims she fights for women. To shame Mrs. Clinton! You should be appalled with yourself as the majority of women victims are not buying into your false image. Actions speak louder than words!

Re: “Pittsburgh is the first stop for millennials looking to raise awareness of affordable-housing issues

Citwatchee - Good news! The Whole Foods could actually benefit the community if done in the right way. Check out this example in New Orleans. WF partnered with The Refresh Project to provide a job training and culinary kitchen on site, healthy foods education, community space etc. I HOPE there are some lessons here that could be borrowed for your community. - Rachel Reilly Carroll

Re: “Prayer vigil held in Downtown Pittsburgh for undocumented immigrant Martin Esquivel-Hernandez

The Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Eastmont is in Penn Hills, just a few doors down from the Wilkins Township border. It is NOT in Monroeville.

He should request asylum. I feel for him, but laws matter.

Re: “Pittsburgh is the first stop for millennials looking to raise awareness of affordable-housing issues

While there were plenty of options for Wholefoods expansion, the reality is a deal has been done. The question is can the deal turn lemons into lemonade in terms of design quality and up front inclusion of replacement affordable housing -mixed income over the top of whole foods.... Both/And not either/or!

Re: “Ball on the Bridge highlights LGBT ball culture on the Andy Warhol Bridge

It might have occurred to the author to bother to define the term "ball culture".

Re: “Pittsburgh officials asking for input on 'Complete Streets' and bike-lane plans

Bravo!!! The more space, safety, accommodation, and consideration of ALL people moving around the city the better. AND tourists will be attracted based on ease of biking here.. I do not use my bike on city streets due to fear; so I applaud these ideas...Peace..
