If anyone has any question as to why the "education system" in West Virginia ranks at the bottom of the list, I would suggest that you observe the "education" of the majority of the state Board of Education and the individual who appointed the current members to their positions. Pathetic to say the least.
Phil Kabler's recent column in the Gazette sheds more light on the actions of the state Board of Education vs. Ms. Marple than any other "read between the lines" explanation that I have seen or heard.
Don't you think that the state lottery commission headed by Ken Greear needs to bend the rules or change the rules to include day trips to the Greenbrier Casino? With all of the casinos opening in all the states around us, help the Greenbrier Casino and its employees, don't penalize it.
Mitt Romney lied again. He said that 47 percent of Americans were on public dole. The elections proved that there are 51 percent of Americans on the take.
Recently I overheard that a television series is being planned based on the West Virginia mafia. It is to be called "The Mancheenos." How can I apply for a part in this drama?
So now everyone involved in the sex scandal is hiring PR firms. This is about to get real comical.
What is wrong with the Republican Party? Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.
Sorry Gloria but your attempt to rehab the image of the Khawam twins was a flop. They do not qualify for sainthood. Their history of turbo social-climbing, wrecked families, and a mountain of debt resulting from high-maintenance living is well documented. Move on along.
Look around folks. All these lines and people "camped out" in front of the retail stores from Monday a.m. until the stores open at midnight Thursday, most if not all, are most surely on the "Obama Handout Plan." It's readily apparent that they could not have a job, but do have money to spend. We pay, they play.
The state BOE's firing of Marple was intentionally scheduled to happen one week after the general election so as not to influence Manchin's re-election to U.S. senator. It will be six years when his Senate seat is up for election again. Will we remember this charade? Someone needs to maintain a list of such events. Yes, I am a Democrat who is sickened by the Manchin politics.
What steps do the citizens in West Virginia need to take to get an elected West Virginia Board of Education? After all, we elect 55 county boards of education. Why can we not elect a state Board of Education? The current state board has demonstrated a clear need for an elected state board.
