And it will be because they are full of shit, not you! They botch having that giagantic shopping center constructed along the river side near the marina, because the mayor and the mob was trying to get their payoff off the top, so they deferred their original plan went and built it in Homestead because of that! Can you imagine all the local jobs for people living in McKeesport that were lost because of this, and imagine all of the lost revenue for the city, because of the mayor, the mob, and politics?
At least the area public transportation system is financed. One more year for a bandaid solution.

It takes the strong to stay. To deal with the same immature mentality for life easy? I'm going to tear my house down first. I have a deal ongoing to do it. That's to make certain no one else gets to deal with idiots. Someone wanted the house? Takes the weak to stay after time. It's more leaving a bad investment rather than strong or weak either way. That is, as regards staying or leaving. Make sure no one else has to deal with the low intellect on your way out.

I just thought I'd leave my house standing, let the crack heads tear out all the copper and anything of value, maybe have some indigent drunk turn one room into a Abandominium, fix it up with a kerosene heater, candles, a mattress on the floor, a cooler to keep their beer and chipped ham cold, people running in and out at all hours of the day & night, see how my neighbors like that, the same neighbors that I have made numerous attempts to get together to DO something and they just bitch right down...let them deal with it, they are so good at turning their heads to drugs, drinking, violence, child abuse/neglect, filth and general mayhem. One more little crack house won't hurt.

That's quite a neighborhood, but like most in McKeesport. Most leaving McKeesport don't seem to be able to sell easy. Most cannot sell at all and simply leave them abandoned.

McKeesport, Duquesne, Homestead, Braddock, North Braddock, Rankin, East Pittsburgh, North Versailles and the surrounding Mon-Valley will be like the City of Detroit in 5 to 10 years.

Ahhh, but it will be happening in the Barn, Wooly. I have insider information that The Machine has plans to merge your adobe (aka Barn) with Ken F.'s kennels, located on Lysle Blvd. As soon as they can locate a cage large enough to hold your big Mama it's a go, pal. Maybe I'll stop by and slop your Mama some night, and feed her potato skins through the cage! They are shearing your fur (after a thorough cleaning and disinfecting, of course) and plan to donate it to Angora Farms for those that make those crafts...put that in your loom and spin it! FACT!

Who are they bullshytting ?? It's not 'City' status now - nor is the skool district Quad A . I said it years ago , if it wasn't for the local piss-ant Dem politicians hoping to hold onto their welfare fed political positions - this whole Mon-Valley should be called the Greater Braddock Slumland. It's all the same except the arse-holes here who think it's still McKeesport 1970 . Get your fangs & your family off of our backs .

The once prosperous Kingdom will be known as 'The Boro of South Braddock '. Funny thing is - Braddock still has it's major tax base -U.S.Steel. So why was this town in a state of total failure before 1980 when all the other mills in the valley operated until 1982 to 1984 ?? Ask the locals (I have), they say simply 'dirty politics'. So now we have this shyt-hole that really is no longer 3rd class city status , with these egotistical , arrogant arse-holes called the MDC who believe it's 1970 all over again & they can still rake in the kickbacks & $$$ from the numbers racket like the old days . What the fack are yinz smoking ? Wake up - it's a ghetto dump led by inbred morons believing what their professional butt-lickers blow up their asses to keep their comfy positions. The truth - you can't handle the truth .

Just what are Mike and AJ and Lori thinking?

This is the only time in City history that a political victory will be condemnation to a political death chamber
LOL LOL LOL. I guess all this goes to show what an incredible job the student mayor is doing!! You guys spout off and don't realize what your doing. Cherepko looks like a freakin hero because of all your rhetoric... I guess he is !

He is a hero. He will win at least two more elections and then move on to replace JB. The Mob Valley will continue to languish and sink into the cesspool of UNDETECTED crime and corruption.

The major businesses and sources of income will be attributed to the unfettered video machine industry. I think that Steel Valley School should include this enterprise in their vocational course curriculum.

Select or very weak law enforcement and prosecutorial desecration abuses are and will continue to be the problems.

To the victors belong the spoils and long live the machine.

Population of the City will continue to decline. The City fireman will price themselves out of the paid fire department market with their most recent very generous union contract.

The city will be a bigger ghetto than it already is. The brothers chased out all of the hard working people. You all took over beautiful homes and trashed them. Keep making babies, we'll support them. Why don't you all form your own state somewhere. Preferably an island somewhere far.
