I see where someone wrote in and accused the Democrats of trying to sneak in to the cyber-security bill putting a ban on guns. I don't think so, but I did see in the national news where the Republicans are wanting to put an amendment to repeal the Affordable Care Act to the same bill. Mitch McConnell is up to his old tricks again.
The Korean War Memorial is located in Washington, D.C. It is the most beautiful one of all. It has 19 free-standing life size soldiers and their reflections are seen in a black granite wall, making 38 soldiers, which represents the 38th parallel that divides North and South Korea
If Century cannot run at the electric rates now, what do they think the people on a fixed income can afford? We, the people it would hurt the most, do not want this burden. Yes $12 isn't much these days but to some it will pay a co-pay for their medicine. How about the union helping out the plant?
Mitt Romney makes Sarah Palin look like a legitimate candidate.
Would a Democrat please explain to me why it would be so hard for the poor and disadvantaged to show ID when voting? Don't they have to show ID and documentation when applying for free benefits? They have IDs. Face it. The Democrats would lose votes if they tightened up the rules.
So now Mitt Romney says he embraces Paul Ryan's plan to get rid of Medicare. The guy has no idea what it's like to be a working man or woman in today's economy. And he wants to extend tax breaks for the super rich. We need to stay with Obama's plan that is fixing the mess Republicans made. Democrats: fixing Republican messes since 1933.
Election time is coming up. So all you patriots out there cast your vote for the good of the country, not for the good of the party.
It's offensive that the Bluefield State College alumni are demanding a black man to be its college president because it's historically a black college. It should be about intelligence, not skin color.
Judge Duke Bloom and the Kanawha County prosecutor's office should be ashamed of themselves. Murder three people and get second-degree murder? Come on, people.
Does anyone know a place that accepts World Book encyclopedias or where you can take them to be recycled?
I can't believe anyone with a brain would vote Republican now. We are in bad shape in this country because of wars and policies started by George W. Bush. I'm for Obama, who has been trying to pull us out of this hole which the GOP Congress has been trying to keep us in.
All the talk about the American Olympic uniforms being made in China. Check out the water polo thongs. It's almost pornography.
Can someone who is into West Virginia folklore or folk songs give me any information on the title "The Crime at Quiet Dell, West Virginia"?
First, New York's Mayor Bloomberg decided what kind of fats could be served to cook foods in New York City. Then he decided what size drinks could be served. Now he's telling the hospitals to lock up the baby formula and force mothers of newborn babies to breast feed; and you think government isn't too far into your business?
The shooter in Colorado knew they didn't allow guns in the theater so he knew nobody would be shooting at him when he went in there. Everybody else was obeying the law but he wasn't.
Cross Lanes gas dealers, tell me why your prices are so much higher than Teays Valley and Corridor G. This is a shock to all of us.
Some of those reality shows, if they didn't make them look so fake, they wouldn't be bad shows, but everybody knows they're so fake it's pathetic.
One of these Olympic coaches should have a serious talk with this Lochte guy that's a swimmer. First of all, it made me mad that he beat Michael Phelps, but to put that stupid-looking grill in his mouth in front of the whole world was the most idiotic, punkish thing to do and he's a disgrace to the U.S. Olympic team.
I know a man in Putnam County. He planted a garden and found out later he had inoperable cancer. He took a chair into his garden and sat on it and hoed his vegetables. They were ready for his wife to can. Saturday night someone stole them all. All the beans and everything. Lord have mercy on a thief.
State employees need to remember that they work for the people of West Virginia, not the other way around. The rudeness and other stuff that they pull, that's just not really cutting it. If they don't like the amount of money that they're getting paid, let them go find somewhere else to work and get paid for nothing.
One of the fun things around here is people even though there's a handle on glass doors, they can't figure out which side of the door to use. Fingerprints don't lie. That's a shame that people can't even be smarter than a door.
