“Pittsburg, Not Paris”

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”  OK, but please understand, the pact, signed in Paris, was meant to help protect the world from itself.  Pittsburg remains part of our shared globe.

From the NYT and Marie Gulliard…



We’ll get there Alex, we will.


Keep this in mind as you go to the polls in 2018 and 2020.

    Based on this post, you seem to have missed the response to Trump from the Mayor of Pittsburgh: “Fact: Hillary Clinton received 80% of the vote in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh stands with the world & will follow Paris Agreement.”

    Thanks Jon for the post. So there was a “PIttsburgh not Paris” rally in DC today by Trump supporters, organized by the Fairfax County (VA) Republican Committee. Guess where in DC it was, apparently. Lafayette Park… George Takei’s take: “the irony is thick as brie.”

    Add to that the fact that Mayors from Pittsburgh to Columbia, S.C. are rallying to achieve 100% renewable energy for their cities. As the Mayor of Pittsburgh himself said, “Pittsburgh will not only heed the guidelines of the Paris agreement, we will work to move towards 100 percent clean and renewable energy for our future, our economy, and our people”

    Alas, the “Pittsburgh not Paris” rallying cry appears to be even more of a stinker than any French cheese could ever hope for.

    1. Alex! Have you ever thought that the reason why you became an agent of the UN’s Agenda 21 and I became a Maoist was due to the name of our Californian home town? Seriously, think about it. Would we have been watching Nature on PBS or reading Cosmos if we had grown up in Concord? Damn that Marquise! At least there is hope for Rams, he wasn’t there but a year or three.

      For the record tho, I think it’s unfair to judge the supporters of Pittsburg’s hospitality sector on the name of the park. It reeks of a liberal snobbery.

      Live long and prosper! – and if you have any thoughts on the Paris Agreement and what it means that you have written or would like to write and would allow me to post them, please let me know.
