Apr 7, 2011 Full story: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 54

Students in the South Allegheny School District, downwind of U.S. Steel Corp.'s Clairton Coke Works, have asthma rates 300 to 400 percent higher than national rates, convincing district officials to install air filtration systems in school buildings.

Gee....maybe we should get rid of the problem -- and get a better class of people in the bargain. Even illegal aliens would be an improvement over those shithole bums

I hope that the "shithole bums" you reference are from US Steel management or failed state/federal regulatory bodies.

Actually I was referring to those hired killers in the pay of US steel who produce nothing but worthless garbage, survive on government life support, murder innocent people with poison gas, contribute nothing to the economy, cash flow or tax base of the MonValley because they "prefer to live some place nice" and "commute to pollute and rip-off the loot.

Thus while I was referring to these alleged "steelworkers" -- what a joke -- I have no problem including the other groups you mention. US Steel management did not have to embrace obsolete technology, breakdown maintenance, depreciated assets and equipment that belonged in the junkyard twenty-years ago as a positive good and thus assure their own downfall. Their decision to treat such foolish notions as "job killers" and "conspiracy theories" and the other idiotic fantasies of these shithole bums with respect and consideration was the root cause of this.

As for government regulators, they need to quit listening to all the corporate poor-mouthing and whining about hardships. Comapnies that rely on obsolete technology and equipment, breakdown maintenance and depreciated assets and have, predictably, putrid record on health, safety, product quality, environmental concerns and equipment reliability have no value and should not be kept in business......just so these shithole bums can who survive on government life support can continue in their fanatsies that they have "real" jobs, when they don't even work for a "real" company and that their work deserves respect when all they produce is worthless garbage, poison gas and dead bodies!

THEIR BUSINESS IS MURDER.....AND BUSINESS IS GOOD!!!

The rich & powerful have always turned the poor against themselves for a few silver coins, and paid off their government lackeys to look the other way, as well. But their wealthy overlords are the true cancer on society; make no mistake there, friend.

As are these shithole bums with union cards. The USS/USW share the overlord ship of the MonValley. Since they are not representative of or accountable to the citizenry, justice can hardly be expected in this situation. Nor is it profit-driven or a productive enterprise. It survives entirely on government life support; product quality is a joke!

According to classic economic theory they should be allowed to go out of business. However, the government still feels the union vote is important. So these useless old shitholes continue to produce garbage, poison gas and dead bodies because.....

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE THAT THEY CAN DO!

Their REAL business is murder and even in a recession THAT business is still VERY good!

The shitholes of US Steel should have a swastika for their flag and for their logo a skull-and-crossbones!

The union is not responsible or accountable to the citizenry at large; and how can they be? Does the community pay union dues? Work in the mills? Elect the union stewards and officers? You are sorely in need a basic civics lesson, friend.

Our economic system is capitalism; unions seek to match the power of amassed capital with the massed labor. The responsibility for the community at large, for maintaining the rule of law and delivering justice resides with the government, but they have more often than not discharged it poorly.

Elect the far more blatantly pro-corporate Republican politicians like Tom Corbett, or give a House majority to Weeper of the House Boehner (ask not for whom he weeps, for it sure as hell isn't you, bub!) and you will reap what you sow... and it is the whirlwind!

Your post assume that there is some distinction to be draw between US Steel and the USW, when in fact there isn't any. These shithole bums do not have real jobs or even work for a real company -- they survive entirely on government life support. They are not even in business to make money. Their reliance on obsolete technology and equipment, supported by breakdown maintenance and depreciated assets assures that they cannot compete with foreign steel and their product quality is a joke.

While these shithole bums berate the environmentalists as "tree-huggers" and with other insults they have, in fact, accepted their position fully. This is why these shithole bums "prefer to live siome place nice" and "commute pollute and rip off the loot". Even those shithole bums have sense enough to keep their families safely out of harms way. No matter how many people eventually die for their useless old shitholes, those shithole bums know that their shithole families are out of it.

THEIR KIDS AREN'T THE ONES WHO ARE GOING TO BE KILLED!!!

The MonValley has not future with these shithole bums and their useless old shitholes fastened on their collective neck. Since they "prefer to live some place nice", these shithole bums contribute NOTHING to your local economy, your tax base or your cash flow. The pollution from their useless old shitholes also assures that MODERN coal-based industries -- the only kind worth having -- cannot be built and that the region must continue to endure a permanent recession ..... ARE THESE SHITHOLE BUMS WORTH IT?

Consign those useless old shitholes to dynamite and the wrecking ball and modern coal base industries will flourish overnight. A more immediate beenfit will be the rid the MonValley of these shithole bums and leave you with a better class of people.

ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN THESE SHITHOLE BUMS!!!!

If you are "disputing" anything I have said, do so. I understand that you shithol bums have union cards and are thus exempt from rational argument, It is also argument that the mental and intellectual inferiority of a shithole bum limits his ability to do so. Accordingly, I suggest that you simply pull your shithole in after you and breathe deeply. In this way you can become a "good" shithole bum -- THE ONLY KIND -- and help the MonValley to get a better class of people.

OR JUST BURN YOUR UNION CARD!

My Grandpa tells me that it's astounding how much cleaner the air is compared to the 1950's and 1960's. So, he thinks some other factors are contributing to the rise in asthma rates.

I'm thinkin, then, that maybe the district is making assumptions and should look into possible causes a little more.

Quit making poison gas, people will stop dying. Keep making poison gas people will keep dying.

Get rid of those useless old shitholes that can't make any money anyway -- no more poison gas.....people will stop dying. This will also get rid of these shithole bums -- who "prefer to live some place nice". They don't contribute anything to the MonValley anyhow -- their cash flow bypasses the region and goes "some place nice. For this reason, I have repeatedly suggested "spme place nice" where these shithole bums can go.

One more example of why the MonValley WILL be some place nice when these shithole bums are finally all dead and gone -- along with their shitholes. If you want me to say something new on the subject, perhaps you shithole bums should find some other way to earn a living besides murdering innocent people -- maybe even modernize and try to actually make steel....like they do in other countries.

I will not ask you to try and refute anything I have said. I understand that your union cards not only license you shithole bums to commit murder, but exempts you from logical argument -- this last is beyond your mental and intellectual abilities in any case.....one more reason to eliminate these shitholes and with them your livelihoods. The MonValley is overdue for a better class of people -- and even illegal aliens are preferable to any of you shithole bums.

So pull your shithole in after you, breathe deeply and become a "good" shithole bum -- the ONLY kind!

AND BURN YOUR UNION CARD -- one less piece of garbage.

This is about the response I expect from any shithole bum, but, hey, I'll accept the challenge. Recognizing that this may tax your limited intellectual resources please explain to me the virtues of obsolete technology, breakdown maintenance and depreciated assets. Please don't waste my time with any garbage about "job killers", "conspiracy theories" or any other idiotic fantasies. That may fly in the MonValley, but I live in America -- not Fantasyland.

Of course you don't -- none of those shithole bums are "steelworkers" anyways. Their product quality is a joke! With their obsolete technology and equipment they can't even meet their own specifications. However, this is necessary to accommodate the fantasies of these shithole bums who believe that modern technology is a "job killer" and that any for of progress is a "conspiracy".

Perhaps as a self-appointed mental health expert you would care to comment on the wisdom of these brilliant minds which has done so much to assure the success of foreign steel and bring a permanent recession to the MonValley region.

Of course, I can understand your reluctance to criticize these shithole bums -- they have union cards and are therefore exempt
