Why should anyone pay? To take up the slack for those shithole bums because they "prefer to live some place nice"? NO! Hit them with occupation privilege and income taxes, if they want to "commute to pollute and rip-off the loot". While there at it, tax their shitholes on every ton of the worthless garbage that they produce -- and no more pleas about "hardships". The only REAL hardship is the continued existence of these useless old shitholes and these shithole bums

You've let too many people slide, on too many things for too long. Too many exceptions to the rule equals no rules and no rulers -- even if they do have union cards!

I'll just settle to see those useless old shitholes consigned to dynamite and the wrecking ball and all of those goddamned filthy shithole bums dead and gone....

There are ways to make money besides producing worthless garbage in order to murder innocent people with poison gas on the government's nickel. Besides, since those goddamned filthy shithole bums "prefer to live some place nice" they contribute nothing to the local tax base. Why should decent people take up their tax slack?

For those who say that Clairton should have a charter school and hire "Kick Ass Teachers" such in Harlem, there is a big difference.
First what "Kick Ass Teacher" in his/her right mind would want to teach in Clairton - even if it were a Charter School. If they are indeed "Kick Ass" they would go somewhere where salaries, respect and disciplin mattered.
Two - even under a Charter license, it would still be the same ole, same ole in regards to students and disciplin. The only factor might be if charter schools could expell. Then it would still be a matter of what to do with the "Flunkies"

I for one will vote NO. I look forward to Clairton School being closed! The only yes vote this will get are the Renters with 12 kids, who don't pay a cent of school tax!

School taxes should also be paid by these goddamned filthy shithole bums who "prefer to live some place nice" and then 'commute to pollute and rip off the loot" -- along with their deadbeat employer who produce nothing but garbage on the government's nickel in order to murder people with poison gas

Now that you have proven once again that none of you goddamned filthy shithole bums are worth it, maybe you'll explain why the MonValley should continue to take up the tax slack so that you and your whore can "can live some place nice" while you murder innocent people with poison gas to produce garbage as worthless as the scurvy bastard litter born off your rotting edge.
