I so wish the US would get rid of the job killing, economy crushing, draconian big government anti-business environmental nazi laws that are hampering our job creators.

Pittsburgh used to be the industrial lynchpin of a thriving steel industry.  People were happy, had jobs, etc... Here's how it used to look libbos:

Thanks to so called "progressives" like Nixon signing the EPA laws, we have a completely decimated city where families used to live and grow:

They cant catch fire, they're too full of dead birds pigs.

You missed the stories after the pig deluge about the hundreds of dead ducks fished out of the rivers there, didn't you?


Well, if computer games have taught me anything, that's what you'd expect after launching birds at pigs.

Basic ecology here, people.

Hey! That looks just like any other modern industrialized city. Why just the other day, NYC had thousands of dead pigs floating in the Hudson River.  And pink water? Jeez, Chicago has green river water every year.

Same thing. Same thing. Keep pouring your 401K money into China!!1!

How do they keep those political prisoners healthy enough to donate organs? I bet the Chinese government doesn't sell a lot of lungs.

Actually I believe it was pig pandemonium and a deluge of dead ducks.  It's going to get truly horrible in the future with a cascading cacophony of chirping chickens and a catnip crazed cat catastrophe.

As someone sitting in an office in Wobrun, MA I'm getting a kick out of that comment.

Nothing wrong with that atmosphere. It has character. It says 'I'm productive!' I have to admire any level of air quality that allows you to run really fast, turn around and still see your 'wake.'
