Re: “U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey holds another last-minute social-media event

Why do you guys always pick on Toomey? Why don't you start questioning what "do nothing" Casey is (not) doing? Talk about an empty suit! Casey is an embarrassment to PA. How does this putz win an election? (thanks daddy)

Re: “U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle defends the Affordable Care Act in two Congressional committees

My issue with the ACA is that it is not affordable. My rates were supposed to go down according to Obama. So why have they gone up over 40% since the ACA passed? Typical politician, if their lips are moving, they are telling lies. Doyle is no different.

Re: “What's a sneckdown and what does it teach us about Pittsburgh road design?

Schenley Drive (near the Schenley Park visitor center) should be made into a perfect roundabout complete with bike and pedestrian ways.

Re: “Constituents and advocates protest anti-immigration stances of Pittsburgh-area state reps

The reality is that we have to fear Muslim immigrants because they hate us, and they hate us because we have killed so many of their friends and relatives in our effort to dominate their countries.

In making this a partisan issue, people on the left forget that Hillary Clinton had not only been the chief war hawk in the Obama administration, but had been the chief water-carrier to get Democrats behind GW Bush's invasion of Iraq.

The refugee crisis is but one part of the US Imperialism crisis, and the Democratic Party has to stop nominating imperialists for high office. As bad as the Republicans are on this issue, at least their immigration policy is consistent with their imperialism.

They should contact Paragon Water Systems and buy the filters direct from the manufacture.

Re: “Port Authority of Allegheny County leadership quietly shaken up, advocates ask for more transparency

Another Deto special: No original reporting and poor editing.

The fact of the matter is that the people elected the county executive and the mayor. Those positions come with appointing powers that don't get vetted publicly.

Re: “Pittsburgh South Hills constituents voice opposition to state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler’s legislation

Ugh, this is why you couldn't pay me to move me or my business back to Pittsburgh.

What used to be a great city to work and live in has become Trump Central.

Re: “Pittsburgh South Hills constituents voice opposition to state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler’s legislation

Champion of Women; it's easy to throw pejoratives like 'lie' around when you don't have the facts! I have met a Navy Seal friend of Sen. Reschenthaler, Carl Higbie, who would disagree mightily with your assessment of his military record. Also, I notice you do 'not' identify the 'rapist' case in your vitriol! Hiding something?? Facts maybe??

It is unfounded statements like this that has warped politics and impugned the reputation of good people and I'm sick of it! So 'Champion of Women' what have YOU ever done in your life?? Put on a uniform to defend this country? Challenged urban leaders and judicial officials who let career criminals back out of jail after a slap on their wrists to maim and kill?? I think not! You hide behind a name so you can't be identified and take potshots at good men. Sad, TRULY sad!

Re: “Pittsburgh South Hills constituents voice opposition to state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler’s legislation

So Sen. Reschenthaler is pursuing enforcement of LAW and punishing communities that wantonly disregard the law and he is wrong?? Are these people NUTS?

Sen. Reschenthaler opposes government tax money being used to fund the wanton murder of babies in womb and he is wrong?? Again, are these people NUTS??

My mother used to tell me that every American has a right to their own opinion but NOT their own facts! I wholeheartedly support Senator Reschenthaler!! Semper Fi Brother!

Re: “Pittsburghers call on PWSA to improve water quality and service

Fluoridation chemicals not only increase the amount of lead and other neurotoxic metals in drinking water, they increase the absorbtion of these poisons into bodies, bones and brains.

I especially like the title of #7 on this short list of citations:

Re: “U.S. Congressman Keith Rothfus dodges 130 constituents in first week back in district

What is wrong with the people at these Town Halls is they never plan on voting for Keith anyways, also ALL their personal concerns about ACA are not the major problem ,nor will be taken away with a new option. First, as they stated Age 26 for dependent and Pre - existing conditions will be covered!!! WHAT IS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT AND IS THE CONCERN IS THIS IS A PATH TO SINGLE PAYER SYSTEM...NO OTHER CHOICES OF MEDICINE WILL EVENTUALLY BE OFFERED ONCE ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES GO OUT OF BUSINESS FOR 325 million PEOPLE (SOCIALIST MEDICINE DOESN'T WORK ANY OTHER COUNTRY ESPECIALLY OUR POPULATION) NO INSURANCE WILL BE OFFERED WITH COMPANIES YOU WORK FOR OR LABOR UNIONS. THIS IS THE BIG PROBLEM AND MORE TAXES TO ACA IN 2020.

Re: “U.S. Congressman Keith Rothfus dodges 130 constituents in first week back in district

Run for office and then hide from constituents. A particularly common theme these days. I thank the CP for reporting on this phenomenon which is also covered by WESA-FM and NPR. Reporters doing there job which includes reaching out for comments from both sides.
AND as you will see below, I am not ashamed to use my real name.
