Taxes N@

...Pittsburgh Tea Party, at the confluence, this weekend...bring booze

So, the county council has decided to impose an additional 10% tax on poured drinks. As if it weren't enough to pay 7$ for a martini/manhattan. That's just f'ed!

It's all to keep our public transportation moving. I say if we stopped spending money paying for some damn bus driver to have full family medical coverage until the day they die...or maybe stop paying them over $30/hour to drive the happy bus, then we wouldn't have these issues. It's just a friggin' bus! But I digress.

I know that the bus has been fodder for my blog for quite some time, but it's not worth THAT much money. They just increased my monthly fare by 25%. What more do they want from me? Blood?

It looks like I won't be getting drunk in town any time soon. I'll just have to stay at home and drink myself into a stupor. Wait, how is that any different than normal?

I'll just have to think of the finer things in the 'burgh, brought to us by WearPittsburgh and PittGirl(aka Bitch got her own t-shirt!) at the Burgh Blog (some explanations provided for the 'burgh-impaired):

Pittsburghers put fries on everything...salads, sandwiches, pigeons etc...


Because we can't pronounce "East Liberty"


A phenomenon that occurs in the row houses of the Sou'Side and Bloomfied; people reserve spaces on the street using folding chairs and other objects.


It's "SLIPPERY" Damnit!! What are y'all ignunt?



No Explanation Needed


P.S. For those of you looking for Scottie X-mas gifts, I wear a large (they shrink).
