CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- I read where someone said that the sheriff should take a civics class so he could learn how laws are passed in this country. Well I hope that Obama takes the same class. He appears to not understand our form of government either. He thinks that he speaks and we listen and obey. His word is not the gospel and it and it is not law. Just because he wants something, in no way means that he will get it. Perfect example, I wanted him out, but I sure didn't get what I wanted. I've got to suffer through another four years of this moron. He's no better than me.
Coming out Rocky Fork Road whenever you cross the Rocky Fork Bridge going down toward Lanham, that road is one horrible mess and I'm just wondering how long will it be before the state road comes there and does something to it before it goes over into the river. It's like a merry go round. It goes up and down. It's in really bad shape.
You know, it's a shame that we've come to a point already in the United States where there is more people riding the wagon than there is people working to pull the wagon. If it gets much worse we're all going to be cut off because we're going bankrupt.
Citizens have the right to refuse illegal orders from policemen. (Have sex with me.) Soldiers have the right to refuse illegal orders from superior officers. (Kill those civilians.) Sheriffs have the right to refuse unconstitutional orders from the president. (Confiscate people's guns.)
To understand recent actions of our state school board, governor, and Legislature, consider this: If you are a politician or political appointee with access to and control of public money, the last thing you need might be an educated and informed administrator to demand proper procedures.
Thanks to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Sen. Max Baucus (D, Mont.), and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), the "fiscal cliff" bill included half a billion dollars for a drug company called Amgen, the world's largest biotechnology firm. And this shows how serious the senators are in cutting spending? No, this shows where their true allegiance lies -- with the corporations while they wouldn't hesitate to cut the big three -- Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
Given Israel's recent unprovoked attack on Syria, it is obvious that any subsequent attack on Israel by Syria would be legitimate retaliation. Right?
Good grief! State sheriffs say they wouldn't enforce the ban.... Where did these guys come from, Texas? If some AK-47 gun nut comes out shooting in one of their counties I hope the Feds hanging the sheriff. I certainly hope and pray the sheriff I voted for does not sign that petition.
Gals, if you want a career in journalism, put on a short skirt, comb your hair covering one eye, so you have to tilt your head sideways to see (Amanda) and you got it made.
In regards to the lead story on Jan. 31, the sherrifs who are not going to enforce the law will then be liable for anyone injured or killed in their county by guns covered by the rightfully passed law by Congress or the executive order by the president.
Where does the Bible plainly say not to work on Sunday? The sabbath falls on Saturday, 7th day of the week. Christ's death and resurrection fulfilled the law, including the sabbath (day of rest). Christ is now our rest (Matt. 11:28-29). Christ freed us from the bondage of the law (Col. 2: 14-16). We are saved by grace through faith, not works, it is a gift of God. We will then obey God's laws out of love, not out of fear or necessity. The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath (Mk. 2:27).
Randy Moss did nothing to get the 49ers to the Super Bowl. He is a college drop-out, former drug addict who is a good athlete. Calling him a role model is ridiculous! Another example of why children today have no values.
Power is what its all about. The Manchins want it all and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Joe wants to be president and is doing his best to make himself known to the nation so he'll have a recognizable name nationwide. His stance on gun control was nothing but more hot air out of him. Being the first senator to speak out about gun control got him on a lot of TV shows. Now he's diluting what he first said. Gayle runs the state BOE She calls the shots and Joe and Earl Ray back her up. I will never vote for him or Tomblin again. Joe needed to stay in West Virginia and fill out his term, but "power in Washington" beckoned leaving us with many costly elections in order to have a governor.
To the person who said Al Gore would have been the only person that could have been a worst president than Barack Obama, that is the dumbest thing I've read in a long time. It's funny how quick you backwoods hillbillies forget your George W. Bush years. That poor excuse for a president is responsible for thousands of deaths of innocent people and thousands of our own military people to be killed and thousands more crippled and the worst number of military personal committing suicide in the history of our military. He has already been named one of the worst presidents of all time. You are the reason why people look at West Virginians as uneducated dumb hillbillies.
