When will West Virginians stop listening to bull from the coal company CEOs and look at the facts? CEOs want Romney because they will get a tax cut, while coal workers inside the mines will have to pay more taxes.
When will the "clean coal" people show us one location where clean coal technologies are actually in place and working?
Most people know that the pipeline from Canada will not supply one drop of oil to West Virginia or to most of the U.S. The pipeline will only make it easier and cheaper for the oil companies to export oil to China and add to their huge profits, thereby making gasoline more expensive for the rest of us. This is in addition to environmental concerns. Let the oil companies, at their own expense, build refineries closer to the oil sands.
In the 1780s, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson worried that a government without term limits on members of Congress would result in a corrupt and dysfunctional government. Do you think they could have been right?
We will never have to worry about Watergate again. Our government and FBI and CIA are all corrupt and too busy spying on free and private American citizens to spy on each other and likewise with civilians spying on each other.
What is the law for a one-way street and the parking is only one side? Are both residences allowed to use the parking or just the side allowed? Some with three and four cars monopolize all the parking spaces.
I think it would be a good thing for the power company, cable company and phone company to all go together and clear cut all the trees from the right of ways so that people won't lose power and phone service when we have a storm like the one on June 29 since they all use the same poles.
I don't think it is fair that FEMA will not help the people who lost a lot of food and damages to their homes in the storm on June 29. A lot of elderly people lost all of their food and had no way to replace it and the DHHR told them if they did not get food stamps they could not help them. Just think, one of these days you will be old and maybe no one will help you.
Susan Nicholas is a bright spot on a staff of big feeling newsfolk.
What a dismal feeling to even think we may have to watch Barack Obama bounce upon a stage for four more years. He is behaving now, election nears, but if you vote him in again, heaven forbid, you may not like what you get. Remember, November gives us an opportunity for real change, not just rhetoric.
The pipeline that Obama would not approve is blueprinted to run from Canada, through a major aquifer that supplies ground and drinking water to millions of Americans in the Midwest, down to the Texas coast. Why the Texas coast? Not to "carry oil to West Virginia and the whole United States." It's so the oil can be refined in Texas and exported to other countries around the world.
