Letter to the editor: On Peduto, re-elected Democrats, justices
My thoughts on some recent news items:
The disrespect shown by Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto toward President Trump on his visit to the Tree of Life synagogue was disgusting. Pittsburgh will never be a great city with leaders like Peduto and his cronies. I’m glad Amazon deleted Pittsburgh as a headquarters choice.
Now that Sen. Bob Casey won the election, he can remove his hard hat, go back to sleep and dream of being elected president. This guy is no Rick Santorum, our last good senator.
With Gov. Tom Wolf re-elected, we can expect more taxes, more teacher strikes and more money thrown at a failed public school system. The teachers’ union has this governor well secured in its hip pocket.
Now that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and broke three ribs, she should consider retirement and let Trump seat a justice who will abide by our Constitution. After Chief Justice John Roberts “caved” and gave us Obamacare, he should remain silent instead of criticizing Trump.
Instead of a Russian investigation on campaign meddling, we should investigate billionaire George Soros and whether he pays demonstrators to trash our country. Why don’t we investigate Soros? Maybe because many politicians in both parties are on his payroll.
Arnold’s loss is Cheswick’s gain. We are sorry to see Joseph Puet, longtime treasurer, leave, but wish him all the luck in the world as he advances in his new job. I always had a good working relationship with him and will miss him.
