Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

These counties are all in the part of PA that is known as "Alabama." ("PA is Philadelphia in the east and Pittsburgh in the west with Alabama in between.") These are the people who elect extreme right wingers and where people like ex Senator Frothy and Toumey have their base. They are the people who elected Corbett and the extreme right wing state legislature. But even they don't deserve this although they knowingly brought it on themselves.

This flies in the face of reason! WHY do they continue to DO it when it is DESTROYING our Aquifers? MONEY is their god, their sword and buckler, THAT'S why, in a nutshell! A pox on ALL of them!
