The Hill District- A Symbol of Blight

This is an amazing link of sites that a friend of mine sent to me. Basically, these folks live in about the shittiest area in Pittsburgh (Hill District) and are trying to live a normal life despite crackheads, homeless, and pieces of shit. Instead of moving like most of us would do, these folks have put up cameras and are actively attacking the pieces of garbage who frequent a local crack house, loiter around property, and make their life hell.

I invite you to take a look at this video and ask yourself: Why can't they get the Hill area into shape? Is it really that hard? They continue to sink more and more money into the Hill and it continues to be shitty, crime ridden, and a waste of our money as taxpayers. Ever drive through there at noon? If its warm, there are 40-50 people just hanging out around, doing nothing? Why don't you assholes have jobs?

We continue to dump money into these shitholes when what we should be doing is turning this prime real estate into what it is: Prime real estate and more tax money, instead of paying for many of these folks to live for free. Ravendouchebag and the council of clowns will never get that. Housing subsidies increase in places like "The Hill", but how did folks in the depression who lived in a time of no government assistance not only live through being broke but also improved their lives? If they can do it, the vast majority of folks in our poorer areas can do the same.

Look at this video and shitbags that not only own this home, but the assholes who frequent it. These webmasters are doing the right thing by filming and keeping the eye on these bums, and I hope we dump the garbage that frequents these crack houses where the belong...in the sewer.

Here is an additional fun page, albeit tough to read:

HOW ABOUT THE GROCERY STORE THAT GETS 2 MILLON EVERY OTHER YEAR FOR THE HILL AND CLOSES DOWN AFTER 2 MONTHS

You're a total jerk.

There was no video available to substantiate your views. I grew up there as a kid, and growing up there I experienced some of the best experiences of my life, but I couldn't see myself moving back there; for more reasons than one. But I am one that likes to reflect on the positive, and forget the negatives of life!
