Letter to the editor: On Peduto, re-elected Democrats, justices

| Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, 10:03 a.m.

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
