Re: “Poll shows support for legal recreational marijuana, Pennsylvania Auditor General says time to legalize is now

If Colorado can make 250 million dollars PA would make over a billion easily, lets get this train a rollin'.

A man is not truly free if he can't smoke weed.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

This is great work. I hope that Ryan Deto or some other intrepid CP reporter will do a follow up into the wilds of places like Cranberry to interview Trump voters there. I would read that with delight.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

I grew up in Johnstown but haven't lived there since leaving in 1985 for better job opportunities elsewhere. The Politico story has stirred up a lot of commentary from current Johnstowners and among my fellow ex-pats, for sure. I've always known that the city isn't completely populated by bigots yearning for the past, but am very glad to see them speaking out now.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

Happy to see these responses. The attitudes displayed in the article, AND the apparent inability to accept change of any size, shape, flavor, would lead the rest of the aware world to write off Johnstown. They're hateful and stubborn? OK, then, be that way, and buh-bye.
But if those voices are truly not representative, speak up and speak out. America is NOT a White Christian country, and neither coal nor buggy whips are coming back to fuel an economic engine.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

As one who grew up in Johnstwn I was sickened at the notice that we, African Americans, do not work. These are the same people who worked with my father, brothrrs in the steel. I am sick and tired of reading stories by racists. It should stop. Steel mills are not coig back. They support Trump no matter because he is the Chief RACIST in the Whie Housr.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

Speaking for my self only, knowing a few people in the article, I am embarrassed for our area. Unfortunately he took a small sample from our area and made them our voice.
In his first article, he found these people outside the rally. And as we all know, they tend to be VERY vocal.
The follow up has the area talking. Which, to me is a good thing. We need to speak louder than our racist counterparts in this area.
I am as much to fault as many. I tend to speak my mind,in small circles, not wanting to make waves. But, it is time to flood Johnstown again. This time with our outrage. Our community is better, smarter more rounded, more grounded than the persons he choose for his article.
We, collectively are not as narrrow minded as the sample he pulled.

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

We in suburban Pittsburgh and all over the country have become much more politically active and aware. Toomey and Murphy have totally abandoned us in their pursuit of Republican Draconian policy. Thank God we're done with Murphy. The blue wave will continue. The Orange Moron has embarrassed us and taken us back to the 1900s. We will not go back!!! #PERSIST #RESIST

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

Democrat Allyson Minton won a seat on the North Allegheny school board. It is believed that she is the first to do so.

Gregg, the article states that would only be used downtown so the hills aren't going to be a significant issue. While there may be some issues with snow on occasion they'll have regular delivery trucks as back up.

Re: “Karl Marx biographers speak here Wednesday

Marx was a type of Satanist before he was the communist we all know and some love. Read Richard Wurmbrand's "Marx and Satan" (RW had an interesting connection to Marxism; he was tortured in a Soviet bloc prison for 14 years because he chose to believe and preach Jesus). He (KM) had no love for the proletariat; instead, by peeking into his earlier writings, one can see that he despised all mankind and only sought the best way to deceive them into ruining themselves and their culture. To borrow his phrase, "Marxism is the opiate of the masses." Only those who are wide-awake aren't lulled into its deceptively seductive call for "equality". As Orwell wrote in Animal Farm, "All animals are equal; some are more equal."

Re: “Decoding state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s far-right messaging targeting Pittsburgh City Paper

Pennsylvanians could rid themselves of public officials who prefer to fight the public if the Commonwealth could be persuaded to scrap the electronic election fraud systems and count actual ballots in full view.
