I started out at 10am to go to the Venture Outdoors festival, on my way there I find there is also a French and Indian war thing going on at the point. I stop and take a look around, it is not very large but it was nice to see, I found out that they[…]

It looks like bob O’Connor has won. I got a strong feeling that he is just WRONG for the city, but the sad thing is since he is the democrat nomination he will win in November, but one thing is for sure, this O’Connor will be out campaigning against that O’Connor, I doubt it will[…]

Well I did it, I voted today; I went down and voted on the 3 things my voice would matter in. The 2 referendums and the special election for the state senate. Being a republican I did not bother to vote on the primaries, it not like it would have mattered, the republicans never win[…]

I checked into Sunday’s scanner net this week, it was fun, it lasted a bit longer then it was planned to last by the net control. I got some good information, I was wondering about what frequency the TV stations use to communicate to their choppers, and to the people that they send out to[…]

I just read about the other referendum on WPXI’s web site. After reading the article and seeing a talk show on the race (here) I don’t think this is a good referendum. Yes cutting jobs in government does sound good, but the jobs they want to cut, are important ones, and I don’t thing they[…]

Today on my bike ride I saw the remains of a car wreck in the strip district at around 5pm (click here for a picture), It looked pretty bad, but it did not look like any one got hurt, but there was gas spilled, and it looked like a car tried to make a left[…]

On the day of the Primary there is also going to be a vote on a referendum. It is being promoted as Growing Greener environmental bond. Since I have a bit of a distrust for referendum’s on a election, I looked further into the act that is in question. I found the text from the[…]

I got in email today that the Red Cross will need some help this Saturday. I would go but I have made a commitment to my church 6 months ago that involves a meeting tomorrow at the same time, I will probably tune my HT over to 146.09 to see if there is any activity[…]

I just got a notice in the mail about the Greek Food Festival this year. They usually have very good food there. I will probably see if I can organize a group from work to go over for lunch some time next week. The nice thing is that the place that has this festival is[…]

Being a Conservative in Pittsburgh

Published on: April 26, 2005

Being a Conservative in Pittsburgh is something that is almost unheard of. In Pittsburgh it is almost a crime to be a conservative, remember the 2 parties in Pittsburgh politics are democrats and “out of office” I know I will not get to vote for the major in the elections. Why do I say this,[…]

A site for blogs that are in Pittsburgh

This is cool I just found a web site that lists blog of people that are in the Pittsburgh area. The only problem when they list places people might live they did not list the neighborhood of Pittsburgh, so I just filled in the “other field” and put in Oakland. Well technically I should have[…]
