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.

Plants & vegetation don't require watering. Loony tunes!

Clever demo. Many people don't realize that eating meat is one of the biggest water wasters and polluters.

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

This is one of the many reasons why I'm vegan. I hope this action convinced more people that meat production wastes water and other resources. Eating plant-based foods instead of animal-based ones also saves land and energy, not to mention animals.

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.

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

Pittsburgh's problem is that as a city it has plenty to offer but very little of it is centrally located. Everything is scattered and isolated where transportation is an issue for the majority of tourists and visitors who have no way of getting to those places. Keep these museums near each other in a centrally located area near Downtown.

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

If Pittsburgh is smart and wants to take full advantage of what WAM and the soon to be Brew Museum have to offer both locals and tourists then let me suggest this.


I am not sure who owns the land between the Hampton Inn and the long terminal building but across from the Homewood Suites on Smallman Street you have those open parking lots which I don't believe are being utilized.

You can build both WAM and the Brew Museum next to each other near the Heinz History Center. You'd have 3 museums nearest each other within walking distance to Downtown. Easy for tourists to get to. Instead of building somewhere in Lawrenceville, or Troy Hill which is outside of Downtown and has no mode of transportation for people to travel with.

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

And, noticing the signs posted above for "Immigration Rights," what does that have to do with illegal aliens? It seems anymore that every time an illegal immigrant is held in detention or is deported, the "immigration rights" protesters come out. It is not immigrants that people have a problem with. It's the ILLEGAL immigrants that is the issue. Immigrants and illegal immigrants are two completely different things. It's like something bad happens to apples and then people start protesting in favor of oranges, when the oranges aren't even the problem.

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

1. This isn't about ICE "not caring." They are simply people doing their jobs and following the law. Laws that existed long before Trump became president, but unfortunately not enforced by any of the previous presidents in recent memory.
2. Someone who has illegally entered the country and was deported four times has pretty much eliminated any chance of having a "path to citizenship." Maybe all of this time and energy being used to keep him here could have been better spent by trying to become legal in the first place when he entered the first time.
3. To expand on what Steve said above, driving without a license and without insurance is against the law. This guy is not the innocent angel that others are making him out to be. Being here in the first place is illegal. On top of that, he and his kids are mooching off of the public school system by not paying taxes. How is that fair to those of us who do pay school taxes??
4. I'm sure that his deportation is a hardship to his family. But guess what? There are thousands of families in the US who are experiencing hardships because a loved one who broke the law is in prison. At least his family has the option to join him in Mexico if they are missing him. US families of incarcerated loved ones don't even get that.
5. And I find it hard to be sympathetic to illegal aliens who possess these attitudes of entitlement. They want to live here, but feel that they are exempt from following are laws as well as dealing with the consequences for breaking laws. Can't have your cake and eat it too!

Re: “Pittsburgh immigrants walk out of work, school to march in Beechview

"Reality": First off, Europeans did not "assimilate" when they came to America; they decimated native peoples, stole their land, and imposed their own languages and traditions. Second, I don't know why you feel threatened by change, but know that many of us do NOT feel the way that you do. I, for one, will be proud if Pittsburgh - and the country as a whole - can continue to grow and to embrace different kinds of people. Your narrow-mindedness and fear will not win.

Re: “Pittsburgh immigrants walk out of work, school to march in Beechview

The difference is Europeans assimilated they didn't insist on America speaking their language and changing for them. The problem going on all around the world is immigrants want the countrys they move to to change foe them! When you move to another country you assimilate to that country that's the problem! Pittsburgh is a melting pot but that worked because people embraced being American not forcing their countries on America!

The best part is unless I wasn't going through local articles no one was talking about this strike!

Re: “UPDATE: Pittsburgh undocumented immigrant accepts plea deal, now in ICE custody

@ largenta - For him, there WAS a chance of filing the paperwork and coming here legally. Now that he has repeatedly re-entered the country and was deported, he blew his chance of becoming a legal citizen. You're right, there is no paperwork that will let him become a citizen, but that is because of his past actions. And even if it's true that the US only allows immigrants from "certain countries," that doesn't make it OK for him or others to break the law and come in here illegally.

Re: “Pittsburgh veterans encourage bettering relationships with immigrants

Plus, if you don't realize they do it so their children get papers and then have them claim them. So this only works as an incentive for more people to not follow the process.
