Re: “An amendment to Pittsburgh's panhandling ordinance should remind us how wrong it was in the first place

Seriously , I doubt that Bill Peduto actually called panhandlers " the scum of the earth " in public , or in a post. I do not think Peduto is that candid.
If that post is really by our Mayor Peduto , than it should be the on the cover of the next City Paper

Re: “An amendment to Pittsburgh's panhandling ordinance should remind us how wrong it was in the first place

I thought that giving people money on the street was " enabling " and as a society we should try to encourage those on the streets to seek help with our social service agencies ? Still, the reality is sometimes a fellow or a gal just needs a little help , and many people won't or can not go to a shelter. It is better to offer food than cash to panhandlers, however , in my experience , they do not want a bag or organic carrots.
Just to be clear , Audrey Glickman , who has had a problem with aggressive panhandlers , is an extremely generous, kind, giving individual , dedicated to the common good .
Aggressive panhandling if not a matter of free speech , it drives away customers , and is unfair to people trying to run a biz , or stroll down the street.

Re: “Silent Vote: Tea-party Congressman Keith Rothfus is seeking a second term, so how come nobody seems to care?

Jason Altmire is the Democrat who could win in this district. (He's already beaten Rothfus.) Too bad the progressives in this district were duped by Critz and Mikus.

Re: “UPDATED: Daryl Metcalfe really doesn’t like immigrants

• President Obama is a sly Liberal leader who has unwavering tried to press his radical plan by converting our democracy and free market economy into his socialist-style ideology before leaving office in 2016. His terms of engagement, is to substitute hard work for almost limitless giving of something for—NOTHING. Just about anybody can claim food stamps, health care and other benefits.

• Bring into being a Liberal Progressive “Political Corrective” to stifle ‘FREE SPEECH’, which as major disruption of American Sovereignty. As per example we supposed to have more tolerance, such as you cannot use the term “Illegal Alien’—but that’s exactly what they are—they crossed our border illegally, so they are certainly not an ‘Immigrant?’

• Welcoming members of the Muslim Brotherhood into the Executive offices.

• Has employed the largest power seizure of all, Obamacare — an all but single payer system that creates a new, permanent dependency class of American.

• Pressing for "immigration reform" that will eventually tip the delicate balance of power in favor of Democrats, giving them an everlasting lock on the Oval Office.

• Allowing unfettered release of criminal aliens, and inviting millions more to come here and then giving them public entitlements, without paying into the system. Not enforcing the border, especially now as Jihad butchers could easily slip into South America with forged passports, then gain entrance to our porous border. Diseases that have been absent from the American mainland are now arriving. Likely carried by illegal aliens who are already here, seeing the outbreak of an enterovirus that is seriously affecting our children to the point of paralysis and death.

• Shifting “red" states out-of-the-way by gaining absolute federal control over state-run education systems using the Common Core program of study, which as already displaying failure.

• Claiming more control over private business by granting the EPA global dominance in the name of global warming, affecting every facet of our lives.

• Blocking energy independence, as with the Keystone Pipeline thus slowing economic growth and breeding more dependency. Using rules and regulations of the EPA, to disrupt coal mining, natural gas and oil.

• Gutting welfare reform and keeping millions on Public Assistance.

• Handing over regulations of the Internet to the corrupt United Nations, along with the sovereignty of our oceans and land.

NEWS FROM, on October 14.
A federal official holding an important and ultra-responsible post is on the way to prison for holding a citizenship fire sale for illegal aliens in America's Golden State, a haven for illegal aliens who are received with open arms by feckless political leaders, according to a former federal police official, Peter Knowles. In an obvious effort to avoid more bad publicity for President Barack Obama and his practically obsessive goal of giving millions of illegal aliens citizenship, the U.S. federal court judge in the nation's "sanctuary state" of California quietly sentenced a Department of Homeland Security official who took bribes in exchange for giving illegal aliens documents that made them appear legal residents or citizens of the United States, according to a former federal police officer on Tuesday. An officer with DHS's Citizenship and Immigration Services, Mai Nhu Nguyen -- herself an immigrant from Vietnam who became a naturalized citizen -- accepted a plea bargain offer in which she would serve less than three years for obtaining thousands of dollars from illegal aliens for documents that proved they were either legal residents or naturalized citizens of the United States.

For example, in a case involving an illegal alien receiving legal immigrant status, the convicted Nguyen received about $1,000 from the Vietnamese alien who sought that most valuable of immigration identification documents known as the "green card."

Many law enforcement officers voiced their fears that even citizenship papers may become highly suspect as a form of identification. "As it is, the driver's license is no longer an accurate and reliable form of identification, with so many cases of [Motor Vehicles Departments] MVD's involvement in fraud and bribery," said Malcolm Seston, a highway patrol cop.

Re: “Pa. House GOP makes sure medical marijuana won't see a vote this session

Politicians who continue to demonize Medical Marijuana, Corrupt Law Enforcement Officials who prefer to ruin peoples lives over Marijuana possession rather than solve real crimes who fund their departments toys and salaries with monies acquired through Marijuana home raids, seizures and forfeitures, and so-called "Addiction Specialists" who make their income off of the judicial misfortunes of our citizens who choose marijuana, - Your actions go against The Will of The People and Your Days Are Numbered! Find new careers before you don't have one.

The People have spoken! Get on-board with Medical Marijuana Legalization Nationwide, or be left behind and find new careers. Your choice.

"You have to be customer-service-focused." Running for a second term and K R still doesn't understand we are citizens, not customers. He is duplicitous and simplistic enough to pander to an electorate he thinks does not know the difference between civic obligations and bargain hunting.
