CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- I would like to comment on Romney lying like he does. I thought he was a religious man. He shouldn't be telling those lies. How can he go home at night and face the rest of his family and lie like that?
Who would have thought that people in Maryland would elect such a radical, left-wing socialist governor? What has happened to our good neighbors over in Maryland?
Why in the world would the mayor of Hurricane be on the scene of a murder-suicide? Is he in the CSI unit now?
We have a school employee custodian who makes unwanted sexual comments towards female staff. This individual has been reprimanded but continues. Should we contact the union or call the law?
The computer router fiasco is a joke. If Jimmy Gianato does not see prison time, our system needs analyzed.
I suspect the winner of this election will ultimately be the big loser. We simply do not have four more years left before the wheels fall completely off. Guess who will get the blame?
If you think your Frontier phone and Internet services are bad, think of the sales staff who hasn't received a commission check since last September. However, they can afford to run full-page ads bashing the competition.
To sum up the Republican Convention: Blaming President Obama for everything, while whining that all he did was to blame Bush for everything. What is wrong with this picture?
God bless Joe Manchin for his willingness to challenge our excessive military spending. Democrats aren't supposed to do that with a Democrat in the White House. I respect his independence very much.
How can our government say that Iran is "isolated" when the leaders of more than 110 countries are in Tehran this week?
Paul Ryan gave a good speech. Unfortunately, his record in Congress does not match the rosy promises he makes if the policies he believes in are enacted. His description of Mitt Romney's record as Governor of Massachusetts was distorted.
Why interview friends of the shooter? He did what he did, nothing they can say changes that, and nobody wants to hear how wonderful he was.
If you think gas prices are high now, watch what happens if Romney is elected. His largest contributors, oil tycoon billionaires the Koch brothers, will certainly expect something in return for their hundreds of millions invested in the Romney campaign.
Regarding military service, Mitt Romney also had a very high draft lottery number and did not have to serve. That previous "venter" needs to check with CNN and/or recheck Romney's history. He is not a draft dodger.
Anyone who has a satellite dish knows that there are nine channels for the Democrats and two channels for the Republicans. Just wish these media people would sometimes, sometimes tell all the truth.
Western coal made the Koch brothers rich and put many West Virginians on unemployment. They must be so proud to see West Virginia drink their Koch tea party.
I don't think those Constellium workers should get unemployment. When I was unemployed, I had to actively seek work. If they're on the picket line, they're not looking for a job. Besides, they have one and they just don't want to work. They should appreciate the fact they have one in this day and time.
Man, why would you expect them to lower the flag to half-mast for Neil Armstrong? He didn't smoke meth and live off of food stamps and welfare; therefore they'll do nothing.
Oh, for cryin' out loud, people, have you any idea what socialism actually means? Here's a hint: next time your Social Security check comes in the mail, return it to the government. Benefiting from a socialist program would make you a hypocrite.
To the person who was surprised that Double Dollar Jones didn't try to keep the Funeral Parade in Charleston <t40>...<t$> probably for the same reason he killed the Sternwheel Regatta. Jones is not interested in anything unless it's a car show, or raising the user fee to give himself a raise.
Ask yourself who would benefit from Paul Ryan's voucher plan for Medicare? The obvious answer is insurance companies. You get a check from the government, add your share to it and send it to the insurance company of your choice. Do you think they are making big campaign contributions to Romney-Ryan?
Let's see, if demand is up, gas prices go up. If demand goes down, prices go up. If supply is low, gas goes up. If supply is up gas goes up, if someone sneezes in the Gulf of Mexico, gas goes up. Being three days before the Labor Day weekend wouldn't have anything to do with gas jumping up 30 cents would it? Greed is the reason.
Ann Romney said she is just like the rest of you women. Except for maybe a $4 or $5 billion difference. She looks for bargains on bread and milk just like you do. Right. You better look long and hard at these people. If you ever plan on getting sick or have anyone in your family that may need health care or [need] to go to a nursing home, Ryan-Romney doesn't want to hear it.
I do want to express some outrage of what I saw going on Facebook [from] residents of the Wallback area and had scanners concerning the shooting of the officers and wrecker driver. They were posting names of those troopers and the wrecker driver who was shot ... along with the name of the trooper who had a "code black" called in. How dare they post that information before the families had been notified!
It is hard to get excited about voting when it seems the same two individuals are running for nearly every office -- 'horrible' and 'terrible.' Who do you choose?
The reason John Raese spends so much time at The Greenbrier is it's closer to Florida.
The last time I saw cold, dark, lifeless eyes like Paul Ryan's, it was a hissing rattlesnake trying to bite me.
