There's something wrong with this picture. Charleston is the capital city of West Virginia, yet our state fair is 75 miles up in the boonies when we have all kinds of property around Charleston where people could enjoy the fair.
I am so sick of this stupid Olympics. I get 78 channels on my TV and that's stupid stuff is on 12 of them. When is this stupid stuff going to end?
This is to the caller saying that the Winfield residents know more about the Nitro council than the mayor does himself. You should try living in Pratt. I don't think anyone knows what they're doing up there, the council or mayor.
I have been getting phone calls all hours of the day and night. ID comes up as private caller. How can I get this stopped?
To the guy from West Virginia University who won the gold medal, thanks, thanks, but most of you anti-gun nuts would like him to be in prison because he fired a rifle.
How did that crowd get so big at Cabela's? Does nobody work or did everybody just take a day off and say to heck with my job, I'm going to Cabela's? I guess most of them's on the public so they can do anything they want because they don't have to work.
This is to the Herd fan talking crap about our WVU $17 million coach, I would much rather travel 1,000 miles to watch a great team in a great league than to go to Huntington and watch a Mickey Mouse team in a wimpy league.
I didn't know that President Obama set the electric rate. What did he do, call AEP in West Virginia and say raise the electric bills? I don't think so.
I don't know how anyone in this country can vote for President Obama when he will not approve that pipeline to come down from Canada to carry oil to West Virginia and the whole United States.
To the person complaining about the football coach making more money at the university than the professors do, well, maybe if every time the chemistry class met 85,000 people would come to it and it made the school $10 million each time you had a quiz bowl, they'd make the same amount of money that the football coach does.
The first time I registered my telephone number with the national do-not-call system a few years ago, I never received any or very few telemarketing calls, but after my first registration expired and I re-registered, I now receive call after call from telemarketing callers. Does anyone know why the do-not-call list is being ignored by telemarketing callers?
