    they are all crazy there killing off all the younger men. Teenagers, men under 30 what is going on in Pittsburgh and the suburbs. This is terrible, don’t we have enough to worry about with no jobs, no food, and trying to make it work. Stop all this crazy killing and put yourself out there for something better.

      They are living off of (and preying upon) the working folks. The only way to stop the disease is to eliminate it…do that by taking able bodied people off of welfare. No mor government hand outs. I have to work, I have to obey the law, so should they.
