I'm calling about the person that talked about the hillbillies complaining about the gas prices. Well you must not be a hillbilly then, or a true West Virginian.
I am also a Democrat, but I have never voted a straight Democratic ticket. I agree with the person who said anyone who does that is an idiot.
Mayor Jones and the City Council are promoting costly playing while Garrison Avenue is past sinking. Pleasure before business. Mr. and Mrs. Public, fasten your seatbelt and come round to Garrison Avenue roller coaster, at your own risk of course.
According to an article that just came out today, West Virginia has the nation's third-fastest growing economy. Keep the Democrats in office so we can keep this going.
When I get an absurd email about Obama, I check it out on "Snopes" or "Truth Or Fiction." Usually about 90 percent are lies. If I can do this, why can't the people who pass on these lies check them out first? Is it because they don't care if they are lies, just as long as it harms Obama? Conservative thinking: Up is down, black is white, lies are truth.
For everyone who takes joy in the defeat of unions in Wisconsin and feel they are a waste of time and money, I would encourage you to Google the chart they are showing on the news. Ever since Reagan fired the air traffic controllers, the union membership has declined, along with middle class wages. There is a direct correlation. Rent the movie "Matewan." This will be your future. Lack of unions and the increase of the Right to Work (for less) states is destroying the middle class. Is the American worker not entitled to a living wage?
I think it's funny when those supporting fascists call Obama a socialist. Fascism is far worse than socialism, but they don't know it. I doubt they know the meaning of either word.
What part of "local news" do all the local television stations not understand? They seem to focus on entertainment, celebrity and scandals.
Well, I've watched WVAH-TV's 10 p.m. newscast for the last time. They're turning into FOX News, running more hatchet jobs on President Obama. Most people watch the 10 p.m. telecast for local news, not propaganda.
Why do so many people end their sentences in prepositions? Do we not teach grammar anymore in West Virginia schools? "Where's the beef?" is correct ... "Where's it at?" is ignorant!
When will the media stop giving political parties a free pass by using gay marriage as a diversion and wedge tactic? Gays are about 2% of the population, gay marriage about 10% of that small number. While that makes the news almost every day, the 15 to 20 percent who are unemployed or underemployed are not getting the significant news coverage to truly hold BOTH parties accountable.
To the caller saying that people in Nitro got smart, I'm assuming they were talking about the re-election for a new mayor. I wish Pratt was that smart.
