I Hate Blogger, Bloggers and Other Things!!!

From the Northside - rember vote HILLARY or you hate Pittsburgh

I had written a hole big thing about how you meanies have just ruined tons of peoples lives just to prove that you can blog in your pajamas, but Blogger erased it all. It basicly went like this....

Poor Alica and Pat, I hope they are spending the weekend at The Mountaineer. That would be a great way to get over an awful week. They could play some slots and the hole bad awful world will disappear. Watch some shows and have some drinks and everything will be better.

As for you bloggers, shame on you for ruining their lives. Don;t you understand, now all those business people aren't going to want to do business around here because they will be scared about doing anything that will ruin their lives. Soon Pittsburgh will be a ghost town and we will all crawling around looking for crumbs for food among the ruins of what was once beautiful Pittsburgh, but you guys will still be blogging in your hand cranked computers. I bet you all watched Planet of the Apes and rooted for the Apes!!! Damn you all.

Here is something from Mr. Tinklebreath's calendar that I couldn't get made...

Not Responsible

I just want to say that Mayor Luke is NOT responsible for this whole Lamar billboard debacle. I do not know why some mean people out there think that he is. They are just stupid. Here is how it is. First, Alecia Sleazekirk is (was) just the mayor's spokeswoman, she was not the Mayor. So, she can take gifts from anybody she likes. And if she takes bribes it is not the same as if the Mayor takes them. He only hired her, he is not her. Her husband, Pat Ford, is a different story. The Mayor hired Pat to consolidate all of the city development operations under one roof. Of course, the Mayor thought that the previous nice honest man who had this job (Jerry Dettore) was not good enough so the Mayor had to bring in his own buddy, Pat Ford. So what? This is what Mayors do. They bring in people who support their interests and goals to help run the city. The Mayor cannot help it if he brings in people who later turn out to be bribe-taking sleazeballs who grant favors to their buddies in exchange for sensurround systems. What is a sensurround system anyway? Is it something Alecia and Ford used for Kinky sex while watching fantasy videos of their friend Mr. Lamar? But, I digress. Actually, I should not say that Alecia and Pat took bribes. We do not know if they really took bribes. We only know that they took gifts from Mr. Lamar, the king of billboards. Then, they let Mr. Lamar put his butt ugly flashing electronic billboards up all over town, especially on the new bus station at the end of Grant Street. And they did not ask ANYBODY else like Mr. Bill Peduto if it was okay. People are now mad because Mr. Lamar's billboards are a gross eyesore. Shoot, even Ruth Ann Dailey is mad, so you know it must be bad. Well, come to think of it Ruth Ann, being an arch conservative, is mad about everything all the time. Except for Jesus who she loves. Just the other day, I saw Ruth Ann on WQED ranting on about how Pittsburgh should have a giant ferris wheel but does not. A FERRIS WHEEL? Just because George Ferris used to live here? What are we, London? How stupid is THAT? As if it would bring more young people back! Stupid stupid stupid. Can't we think of something original? Here I go digressing AGAIN! I used to think Pat Ford was really handsome and sexy but now I think he is really ugly because he loves billboards. I hate billboards! Anyway, just because our good Mayor Luke hired Pat and Alecia does not mean that Luke is responsible for EVERYTHING they do. So, I am really pissed off at the mean bloggers who are trying to say that the Mayor is responsible for Pat Ford's cronyism and favoritism towards that Mr. Lamar guy. Luke is NOT responsible, He did not even know about it, and he cannot help it if people in his administration take gifts and bribes and grant no bid contracts. It is not as if Luke was married to Alecia and Pat and could keep track of them 24/7. They only work (worked) for him. They are married to each other. Luke has more important Mayoral duties. Plus, he has his own wife to keep track of. So just shut up.

You People Are So Mean!

My Endorsement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the Northside!!!!!!

After weeks of waiting for the candidates for president to get in touch with me, nobody got in touch with me. Then I find out the demographic up for grabs in Pennsylvania is WHITE MEN! Here I am a old white woman super voter, and I keep getting no respect!

Anyway, So I am endorsing Hillary Clinton!

I never thought I'd be telling people to vote for a lesbeing but Mr Ravenstahl and Mr. Rendell have endorsed her too so I feel like I am in good company. Since everyone importent has endorsed her, if that other guy wins - Obama - we are going to be in big trouble because he will punish us in Western PA and try to make us part of West Virgina. So for our own future, we have to vote for Hillary.

So my recommendation, if you hate Pittsburgh, don't vote for Hillary. If you love Pittsburgh, vote for Hillary.

[I still want to point out, that this Blog was the first to endorse Dan Onorato for Governor. He has never thanked me. Dan, you can email me at strawberryway@gmail.com]

I'm Back

From the Northside!!!!!!!!

I just got back from visiting my sister down in Florida for about 3 weeks. It was awful. I couldn't find anyone in her retirement community that had the Internet. At least here in Pittsburgh we have the Internet.

I have so much stuff to catch up on so I am going to be busy.

One thing I can say is that I am already tired of all the local blogs ragging on Mr. Ravenstahl for what he did on St. Patrick's day. So what if he went through the parade twice. I'm sure it was fun and he is The Mayor so I would say he could do it as many times as he wanted. I wish he would have done the parade 30 times!!!

Also, so what if he went to some bar on the Northside? He already said that he is a 20 something and he is going to do what 20 somethings do and I don't know any 20 something that doesn't get blind drunk on St Patrick's day. Why should The Mayor be any different? I personally think it would be refreshing if The Mayor held some office hours at some bar somewhere. I think that would get the young people more involved.

Also, so what if he asked a couple police officers to wear their baseball caps and shave or whatever. He is The Mayor. Those police are like those guards for Queen Elizabeth who wear those q-tip hats. They should just shut up and stand still and show a little disipline. If I were The Mayor, I would make those officers wear poodle costumes. Maybe that would teach them to shut up their hate holes.

Speaking of Hate Holes, when are local bloggers going to focus on importent things like litter or something. All they do is hate hate hate The Mayor. If it were not for the Internet, the only person who would hear them is their pet gerbals that they sometimes do what Richard Gere did to gerbals. Yuk.

I Have Tried to Love The Pirates

From the Spring time of Paris!!!

I am excited for you in Pittsburgh that the baseball has begun. The Pittburgh Pirates are on a winning streak - they have won their first and only game. I hope everyone is enjoying the warm rush of being a winner.

I have tried to embrace American Baseball but it can not fill the hole that has grown with my love of the Steelers Nation. As I try to understand baseball, I often have the following Jean-Paul Satre quotes run through my head...

"All human actions are equivalent and all are on principle doomed to failure. "

"Every existing thing is born without reason, prolongs itself out of weakness, and dies by chance."

"Life begins on the other side of despair. "

"Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal. "

May be was a Pirate's fan?
