Re: “Pittsburgh wants your input on its new bike master plan

Pittsburghs bike trails and bike lanes are great as far as they go, but many more connections are needed to make a complete network. Did you ever try to bike from Squirrel Hill to the Strip, for example? I do it, but its not yet safe or easy enough that Id take a kid on that ride. All neighborhoods should be kid-safe for biking.

Re: “Pittsburgh wants your input on its new bike master plan

Pittsburgh has 2% bike commuters and ~20 miles of bike lanes. What % of San Francisco commuters are cyclists? I'd wager it's more than 2. No need to give an extremely small % of commuters a disproportionate amount of street, especially when the design of the bike lanes is dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists. PAT buses have to weave in an out of bike lanes. Cyclists fly through red lights without any reflective gear or lights on. Focus on the what makes sense Mayor Peduto, not the low hanging fruit that please the vegetarians

Re: “Forgive Us Our Debts

Being self-employed is very challenging, however, your income can fluctuate, and there's always the chance that it could sink so low that you can not afford to pay your bills on-time, i totally lost it and it hurt my credit so bad, my score dropped to 563 before i took matters into my own hands by contacting a professional credit repair hacker at [ (408) 909 2650 OR pyramideye.hack@outlookcom]. He cleared my report showing a list of inquiries, collections, existing debts & late payments and upgraded my score to 788 within 72 hours very affordable. I can't thank them enough because of their help as I own my own business now and I promised to take my time to publish this for them when i get results. Obviously my credit is good and i am impressed.

Re: “Speculators have been holding onto hundreds of properties in Uptown for years. What does that mean for the neighborhood’s future?

Because I know this article will continue to pop up on Google searches from people wondering what the hell Bob Eckenrode is up to and how many different LLCs he hides his business dealings under: he now seems to have another LLC in addition to BRGS and JCWS. The new one is Lare Realty, LLC.

As of October 2018, he's still at it, buying even more houses in Uptown. I fear for the future of our neighborhood.

Re: “Domestic Spying: Tracking your loved one's cell may give you peace of mind, but what are you giving up in the process?

If you really need a professional hacker to hack your cheating boyfriend's/girlfriend's/spouse phone, whatsapp, facebook, bank account hack etc. Or credit score upgrade, I would recommend

WHATSAPP +18456436145

He has proven to be trustworthy, His jobs are fast and affordable. He has carried out over 3 jobs for me including helping me hack my ex wife's mobile phone and i can't forget when he cleared my credit card debts and improved my credit score to 750. I can put my money on him at anytime!. He's one of the best out there. Spreading the word as my little favor to him for all he's done. Thank me later.

Re: “Hundreds rally in Downtown Pittsburgh calling for transgender rights and protections

Trans people or whatever the fuck that is.... have the same rights as all males and females. There are no other made up genders that can force on everyone else. If they choose to live in a delusion then thats their problem.

Re: “Internal poll shows state House candidate Emily Skopov within five points of House Speaker Mike Turzai

Mike Turzai is a law violator. His over-sized billboards are in violation of every township's political sign codes; even if erected on private property with permission. He totally disregards the aesthetics of our neighborhoods. Turzai supports tax incentives to bring a few hundred jobs to PA while jeopardizing the thousands of middle income jobs of the State Store employees. Total disregard for the working middle class of PA while cozying up to the big retail money.

Re: “Vacant buildings and property-owners’ rights have some Pittsburgh city councilors rethinking historic designation

I think that many people see through narrow, self-righteous lenses. To restore these building takes thousands upon thousands of dollars that many people do not have. Having a property deemed as a historical landmark puts a big red mark on the building that buyers, even those they don't want to tear it down and want to do right by it, do not want to get involved with. Heirs are left with a heartache that impacts their family not only financially but emotionally. It is amazing when people dictate what they want to do with property YOU own, but these same people offer no relief to families that are torn apart by inheriting a "historical landmark." It's really sad when brick-and-mortar is more important than the families that live in the community. Sadly, these families are the reason these buildings exist.

Re: “GOP state Rep. candidate Natalie Mihalek poses as everyday Pennsylvanian in Florida congressional ad

Only democratic hacks could think that tax cuts are a bad thing- yea, I hate when I dont have to pay more taxes- and only benefit "the rich". Who do you think creates jobs? Small business owners like me, that's who and those terrible tax cuts allowed me to hire 2 more full time employees and thats just the beginning. I'm all for the poor getting tax cuts, but theyd have to start PAYING TAXES first!! Why do democratic shill "journalists" always treat being successful as a negative factor in a candidate! Are they stupid? Only a half retard would think that being a career politician, or failure in the private sector is a positive. It's obvious where the writers allegiance lies- the same place as the other 93% of all other "journalists" (they should feel ashamed to calling themselves journalists) and newsmen, but 5 minutes of research would have uncovered that the candidate joined the Navy, qualified for the Navy's elite Nuclear Power Program (where less than 1% of all female sailors are selected for), then received a degree from PITT and attended law school, worked in the DA office, started her own successful business,then was hired by a large financial institution. That sure as hell sounds like a TON of hard work and a ton of sacrifices that had to be made in order to become successful. Like most out of touch dem's, the author wants everyone to vote against her cause she worked hard and succeeded in the private sector, how dare she!! Instead, he'd rather everyone vote for the career politicians, the guys, like the previous President, who've never had to make it in the real world, never met a payroll and who's ideas are all only theory, because theres no real world experience in their resume where they could have tried to apply their ideas. I didnt care about this race until I read this DISHONEST article and decided to see just how bad the bias was. I got my answer in under 5 minutes, no wonder nobody trusts the media anymore, what a joke. Is it ego that keeps them from admitting that the last 2 years have been an absolute success and that maybe they're on the wrong side? In 2016 the people of Michagan and Wisconsin even realized how bad their states had become after allowing dems near unlimited power for decades, but the media doubled down rather than admit their bias and that's why we have articles like this, that people on Facebook send to each other and laugh at. Sure, I sent it to the next guy cause it's a good laugh, but it's almost too sad and pathetic to laugh at. Its gotta get better, everything else is.

Re: “Children’s advocates say family courts unfairly favor fathers, even when they’re the abusers

@ Kathleen Russell, 2/28/2018 3:18pm Comment..
I found this story Twitter and read thru comments o see if anyone bothered to mention AFCC, HHS fatherhood grants, or any of the things I've been blogging (since 2009). So glad to see that now -- after about nine years (and more, if one counts the NOW FamilyCourt 2002 report) -- reporting from the same area as Center for Judicial Excellence (featuring your professional consultancy from the start) in NoCal -- you've made, if hardly on CJE website or Twitter account, a PASSING reference to AFCC as a factor in (kids being delivered to the hands of abusers). Unfortunately, during the about-a-decade of silence on this, the system has expanded (internationally and nationally) so to challenge it challenges local power structures -- both Behavioral Health (state-supported) and, your chosen primary focus, Judges (also state-supported).

If I live another decade (believe I may about a decade older than yourself), will your comments by then approach ANYTHING I've already done on FamilyCourtMatters(dot)Org (for free, and for the most part, alone)??

As has also (2011ff) investigative journalist Anne Stevenson, and before her, [another NoCAL woman/mother associated with CPPA, Cindy ____, whose last name escapes me just now, in&around 2001-2002 [re: conciliation code hidden in the family code], and before that (esp. as to AFCC's financial/corporate/ private entity using County EIN# etc) Marv Byer (LosAngeles area, grandfather & computer analyst), and before that LizRichards of NAFCJ(dot)net?
~ ~ Such reporting deserved support, not silence from advocates (including some of Ducote's friends) who themselves already knew about these things... but resistant to reporting on them...~ ~ ~

If our maternal pilots lights (or in case of Marv Byer, Grand-paternal) weren't on, and determination to get straight, not deviated explanations for FamilyCourt professionals' behaviors (better than "they just don't understand domestic violence" when they're training each other on it at conferences for MANY years... as AFCC has been, sometimes with the NCJFCJ), we'd have quit long ago... All of which Professor Joan Meier of the article also knows (and sometimes cites to), but presumes innocuous I guess...

Re: “Like so many former Western Pennsylvania company towns, Ford City is in dire need of a comeback

I am impressed with the black and white photo at the beginning of this article that States it was taken in 1976. But upon analysis, one familiar with the area and layout would notice far more amiss. The dead ringer that debunks the legitimacy of this photo being taken over 40 years ago is that elger and ppg plant are non existent yet the new klingensmiths building is erect across from it's original location.
