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: “Pittsburgh becomes first U.S. city with year-round UPS bike-delivery route

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: “Recently posted racist video targets Pittsburgh comedian and ‘Drinking Partners’ podcast host Day Bracey

Where is the outrage?

There is none, because no one cares about puffed up liberal nonsense anymore. Hudak sounds like an garden variety idiot, who'd go away if you ignored him.

How about that cafe's punch card though? Do you think the outrage would ever stop if you "punched out" Hillary or Obama?

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

Instead of outsourcing the permits to grow recreational marijuana I would suggest that the Commomwealth actually look to those that are illegally growing said plant. They would know what the climate is like here as well as have experiance. It would create more jobs here in businesses founded by local residents, and generate tax revenue.

Re: “Hearing held on possible removal of Pittsburgh’s Stephen Foster statue

Mr. Hileman, " Im tired of being a part of this. Part of what, sir? Of inert decades to centuries' old statues oppressing people who walk by? Who made you a part of it? What have you done that made you part of Stephen F. Foster's legacy? Get over yourself, Mr. Hileman. Did you own slaves? Did you profit from slavery? Are you even a grown up, a real man? STOP trying to include yourself where you have no place. Virtue signaling, looking for attention, with fascist tactics to elevate yourself somehow? Get lost, you worthless piece of scheiss - go back to your little halls of academia and kill a few more trees with some worthless treatise.

Re: “New fried-chicken restaurant planned for Pittsburgh's East Liberty draws backlash, owner apologizes to those offended

I actually agreed with both of Brandon S.'s comments and this site tagged my clicks as "dislikes." As for Adam K.;Why don't you have an eastern European theme chicken spot? You can play Bobby Vinton, etc. I'm sure the community you speak of will dig it!

Re: “Pittsburgh City Councilor Darlene Harris caught driving car on pedestrian path in park, upsetting constituents

Didn't realize "renters" is a derogatory term! Nice burn. Next time you see someone you don't like, just call them a "renter".
