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.

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.

Re: “P-G Columnist Continues Assault on Climate Reality

With 60 BILLION food animals on the planet, this should be our first step in the Climate March!

"As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease." Worldwatch Institute, "Is Meat Sustainable?"

“If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains... the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund

"A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy." ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy

There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other. But no one wants to talk about it...

Wrong about it being a great place to use Monty Python dialogue. 2 Years ago, I told the guy that was heckling me from atop a castle that I was going to fart in his general direction. He looked at me like I was a lunatic.

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

It's a paradox, but people too stupid to unionize get the pay and benefits that befit people of their stupidity.

Re: “Buses from Pittsburgh to People’s Climate March

Great job Pgh Sierra Club and Thomas Merton center. Wish I could go with you.

The threat of self-destruction from degrading the life sustaining resources of our ecosystem, and the declining resources we use (Peak Everything) is very real. And there's another aspect that's not talked about: humanity is emerging into the greater community of worlds (ETs) and we risk losing our freedom and sovereignty if we're not self-sufficient and self-sustaining (within our own planet). There are no other worlds to mine or plunder.

For more about this prophecy and how to survive climate change which is already "baked into the cake," see the free book and website:

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

I personally am a member of Unite Here Local #57 which represents the hospitality and casinos in Pittsburgh. I support the Rivers joining our team! I have great pay, benefits, seniority, PTO and many other benefits.
I stand behind a strong leadership that the people have elected. Yes they make a living but are not rich or overpaid.

Keep fighting and we stand behind you 100%.

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

And Julie, unions aren't afraid of "Right to Work" legislation. Rather, unions - aka blue collar workers who want better lives for themselves, their families, and their coworkers - sensibly recognize that the clout necessary to negotiate with corporations and other massive, well-resourced entities, can only be achieved when workers stick together. And the state, in turn, very sensibly recognizes that workers on the ground level should be protected from exploitation by a handful of badly informed coworkers who operate in league with management. In short, unions don't want to be undermined by people who spread misinformation and distractions, as has happened throughout this thread.

("Right to Work," as it happens, is grossly misleading, as it has nothing to do with any kind of right to work. Qualified workers have as much a right to work in a state like PA as they do a so-called "Right to Work" state.)

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

It's not about how much union management makes, or about how much casino management makes. It's about how much the workers at the casino make. Unionized workers consistently earn more and have better access to benefits than nonunion workers. They also have better recourse in cases of harassment and discrimination. You only have to look to the Meadows to see that workers at the Rivers are underpaid relative to their local industry counterparts. It's clear the industry can bear the cost, so why not better reward the people who are directly responsible for the casino's success? And how on earth can better pay and better job security for the hardworking people who wok directly with the customers every day be considered a handout? Nonsense.
Granted, there are a few blue collar employees, such as the ones in this thread, who are deeply offended and angry at the idea of raises and better benefits, but why stand in the way of coworkers who are so heavily reliant on tips to feed their families? If you're really that passionate about saving money for Neil Bluhm, then I'm sure you can always cut him a personal check for the difference after the union negotiates you a raise.

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

Another thing that has been nagging me for a very long time. Why do you guys think its ok for you to harass us at home and or when we are having lunch. Every single person who has been working at the casino for a week knows about your ridiculous movement to get the casino unionized don't you think if we supported your ideas we would come to you. I have been lucky. I was only approach once during lunch and once at home. Good thing I know my rights and word got out to not to come to me but than you go after the people who don't speak English well and or new hires who don't have a clue what the hell is going on. Yeah some integrity you guys got going on there

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

Here's a question for you who are in love with the union. Why aee you so afraid of the movement of "right to work" if you have no idea what I am talking about. Its where if your company decides to unionize workers can opt out. Unions are fighting this tooth and nail. Are you guys afraid there won't be enough workers to help your delusion that unions are the best thing since sliced bread?

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

As for benefits I was part time at casino and I got them you just got to work hours to get them. I know I made some mistakes there that's why I got fire but I will get something else.

The union wants one thing money so they lie to you union supports and say what you wanna hear. Trust be do research on Huffington Post, which is a better news site and they tell you the truth over the money grubbing unions. Anyway the fall of the unions are here #stopUnionization
