Re: “Impeach Trump

Your paper has become nothing but a liberal rag and a waste of time and space for people who actually have a brain and are not brain washed such as yourselves.

Re: “Sign the petition, call your Congressional reps, let’s impeach Donald Trump

Yo Pgh City Paper, I believe it is time to put Hillary, Billy Boy, Mueller, Comey, and that Muslim traitor Obama in prison, yesterday. They sold the Russia"s 20% of our uranium supplies and no one is talking about said sell. The Clinton Foundation received 145 million dollars and Congress was by pasted by those criminals....That's TREASON! Snowflakes are you still continuing to view/listen to FAKE news. No wonder you have no clue what that Witch (she is one in real life) Hillary is up to. Snowflake's have you looked at the stock market, unemployment rate? Some of the 80,000 companies that left during the traitor Obama's 8 long long long years are starting to come back. So you snowflakes instead of asking, "do you want fries with your sandwich" will have an opportunity to work at a real career, after you graduate. It's time to wake up snowflake's and leave the DNC plantation!

Re: “Pittsburgh City Paper editorial team calls for impeachment of Donald Trump

You are a weekly entertainment paper. Very few readers care about your leftist political opinions. Alienating a large percentage of your readers is not a wise strategy. Especially for a publication with an increasingly irrelevant business model such as yours.

The award-winning documentary 'Unrest' will have a Pittsburgh screening on December 2 at 2pm at the Unitarian Church in Shadyside! No admission fee, but donations accepted. Come view the film and invite your family,friends, and doctors to watch. This is a documentary about CFS/ME. It is being considered for an Oscar nomination and has won an award at Sundance.

Re: “The state’s ‘stand your ground’ law has failed to make waves, but activists and experts say Pennsylvanians shouldn’t forget about it

Not only did the stand your ground law NOT apply in this case, my sons murderer is a disgusting liar. We always knew that Derek Vasos was a coward, but we weren't quite expecting the lies that came with his testimony.

Re: “12-year-old drag artist E! The Dragnificent wants people to change the way they view gender

Thank you. Thank you so much for featuring my beautiful child in this story. And thank you for trying to help people understand. We do live in a wonderous time of growth, acceptance, and love... whether people open their eyes to it or not. I can't protect my child every moment. So I pray that we're creating a world where all children (of all ages young and adult) like E! feel loved and accepted and safe. Thank you, City Paper

Re: “Despite the number of Americans living with ME/CFS, little is known about the debilitating illness

For the past 20 years I had been taking allergy shots and they had helped to keep my lungs clear, but after moving across country and being tested by two separate allergists who said I didn't have allergies, but chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) my allergy shots stopped. One and a half years ago I started sweating profusely, worse than during menopause. Water literally dripped off my face. Gradually it started to disappear. The less the sweating became, the more I became breathless until I was gasping for air walking across a room. My lungs started to fill up with mucus which eventually turned into pneumonia. I lost touch with reality.I started on Health Herbal Clinic COPD Herbal formula treatment in May 2017, i read alot of positive reviews on their success rate treating COPD disease through their Herbal formula and i immediately started on the treatment. Just 7 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with MY breething ,I am unbelievably back on my feet again, this is a breakthrough for all COPD Patients, visit Health Herbal Clinic official website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email info@ healthherbalclinic. net.

Re: “Despite the number of Americans living with ME/CFS, little is known about the debilitating illness

Rebecca, that was the most wonderful life changing article I have yet to see. I have a story, if I write it down who would I send it to? Also why cant the millions of us become activists. We could not be available for the millions missing weekend, but we could all make telephone calls on a certain day to certain companies and shut them down. The CDC the AMA, certain congressman, pharmaceutical companies The greedy pigs. They take out money for everything else under the sun and chargers $1 million well when we really need medication where are they. They are letting us die at home one cell at a time. My brain fog, I didnt even know what that meant before, has gotten so bad that I feel as if Im stunned and all the sudden Im thinking in slow motion hearing people in slow-motion me acting in slow-motion. would you like to help organize a day or two of telephone calling? And how would we reach the most amount of people with our illnesses? I posted your article plus I said some things before it. Friends responded and Maddie said that I made them cry. That certainly had not been my intent but our stories are heartbreaking so we have to make more noise. I am certainly ready to do that. I have good hours and bad hours. I even have a few good days in a row sometimes...but in any case how do we organize ourselves to be activists enough to make a huge splash? Gail Kelly on FB

Re: “Despite the number of Americans living with ME/CFS, little is known about the debilitating illness

Gail Kelly- This is my first attempt to add a comment and for some reason I am failing. Bottom line is that I would like to make contact with an MEFS group swell I have someone to talk to about what we are all going through. Id like to be able to read Rebeccas blog. Im just going to send this short statement is everything else I have written is not going through.

Re: “Gun reform gets attention in the wake of mass shootings, but advocates say citizens should always keep an eye on local and federal firearm legislation

The NRA has been selling out the American gun owner for over 100 years. They actively supported the NFA in 1934, the Gun Control Act in 1968 and the oppositely named Firearm Owners' Protection Act of 1986 (FOPA) which removed the right of Americans to purchase new automatic or AOW weapons, a clear violation of the Second Amendment.

All of this was done with the cooperation of the sellout Progressive owned and run Republican Party as well.

Re: “Gun reform gets attention in the wake of mass shootings, but advocates say citizens should always keep an eye on local and federal firearm legislation

The TRUTH about the "supremacy clause" - our Constitution does not delegate to the government authority to restrict our arms, ammunition, regulate firearms dealers, do background checks, etc.

Re: “Gun reform gets attention in the wake of mass shootings, but advocates say citizens should always keep an eye on local and federal firearm legislation

The words, "SHALL NOT" are a huge problem for people with an agenda that is aim squarely at the removal of an individuals to protect their property, family and self. "SHALL NOT" is definitive in its meaning. The 2nd Amendment says "SHALL NOT be infringed." and the PA Constitution says, "SHALL NOT be questioned." No where in either Constitution does it mention mental health, criminal background, or any other excuse currently on the record as a lawful reason to deny a person the right to keep and bear arms. This is merely a control issue that all despots want and it is why the Founders phrased it in that specific way. Kinda like the way God phrased His 10 Commandments.

Re: “Gun reform gets attention in the wake of mass shootings, but advocates say citizens should always keep an eye on local and federal firearm legislation

With all due respect Patrick K., your numbers are off.

A typical AR-15 loaded with a normal 5.56 round and a stock muzzle device will generate, without suppression, approximately 165 dBA of sound. At this level and at the position of the shooter, ear-drum rupture is a legitimate possibility.

With a high-quality (e.g. US Special Forces issued Surefire SOCOM 5.56 RC) suppressor, that drops to the level of about 135 dBA which is slightly louder than a military jet aircraft take-off from aircraft carrier with afterburner at 50 ft (130 dBA). These measurements are taken at the position of the shooter.

So, you're point is legitimate (that suppressors reduce the noise from "imminently dangerous" to merely "incredibly loud", but the claim that it "silences" an AR-15 is absurd), but you have fairly significantly understated just how loud the report from an AR-15 is.
