If you don't like being tailgated, get out of the fast lane.
Instead of putting the amendment for elimination of term limits for sheriffs on the ballot again, which has been defeated multiple times, how about putting an amendment for adding term limits to all offices on the ballot? Then we would see what the public really wants.
The solution to the abuse of cellphones by students is simple. Ban possession and use of cellphones by students on school grounds, period, under penalty of confiscation with disciplinary action. Also, teachers should only have parents' phone numbers, never the students'. We all got along just fine without individual pocket phones. So can today's spoiled brats.
If you really believe unemployment has fallen to 7.8 percent, then you're a fool! ... This president lost on truths from Romney in the debate and now he must spread lies to help himself look good.
Romney doesn't need a lot of ads. He's even, if not leading, in most polls already. After four years in office, Obama has to saturate the landscape and airwaves with ads to convince voters he did a good job. If he was half the president he's trying to say he is, he wouldn't need all the ads.
I don't know why coal miners just don't go get jobs with the gas industry. There's about to be a boom and they are the biggest competitors.
I think Earl Ray Tomblin is the greatest governor we've had in 20 years, and I think President Obama is the worst president we've had ever.
Middle-class retirees with decent pensions and Social Security spend money at restaurants, on modest vacations, buy gifts for their grandkids, and other extras. This is part of what keeps our economy going. In a few years, the next generation will be working longer and will not be as well off in their retirement if the Republicans control our government and the corporations have their way.
When it comes to being a warmonger president, Mitt Romney will make George Bush look like a choir boy.
I have completely [quit] watching NBC, ABC and CBS because of their biased reporting in support of dictator Barrack Hussein Obama. And if he is elected to another four-year term, America will be toast. And evidently, these stations don't care.
With winter coming on and maybe unexpected climate changes, it seems even more important for households to prepare for sudden or short-term emergency situations. For instance, storing water, canned soups and so forth, pet foods, various paper products, emergency light . . . Think about it. It's not difficult. It's practical.
I think that no one here in Nitro has ever seen the new mayor. How do we go about putting his picture on a milk carton?
I have been a Mountaineer fan, watching Mountaineer football for 50 years, and in all that time, they have never had a worse defensive backfield, defending against the pass ever as they have now.
Men, you better tell your wives how to vote and your daughters how to vote. If not, we're going to end up with four more years of Obama.
