But, the only thing that really matters is what the lower hill residents think of this. has anyone spoken to them for a reaction yet???????? because i would hate for those 6 concerned citizens getting the shaft in all of this. and does this mean the lower Hill will NOT be getting the facelift it soo desperately needs???
When problems first started occuring with the casino and this bum, the 'One Hill Coalition' blamed the Penguins, city and state. They would NEVER blame Barden for obvious
reasons. The majority of people who have a brain in this city realize why the guy received the license in the first place.
In my opinion, it went something like this..."Hey look, he's black, let's automatically give it to him, nevermind his credentials (if he even has any) or if he has the money to support this project. Let's just give it to him and I'll stick up for the guy through thick and thin for my own personal reasons. I really don't care what's good for the citizens or for the city of Pittsburgh. Free arena? No cost? Who needs it? Let's just give those 'hard working" citizens up in the Hill District free handouts and Barden his license. Afterall, they are "owed" it.".
Personally, I don't care if the guy is green, red, blue, yellow or purple, but giving this idiot a license was done for obvious reasons and the gaming board did not give a damn about the final result. The final result is a complete ****ing mess. I was against giving this guy license from day one and so were the majority of people who actually work for a living and realized the benifits of giving the license to IOC.
