U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito says she will run for Sen. Jay Rockefeller's seat in the 2014 election. Jay has provided excellent leadership and service and has shown that he really cares for our people. Shelley has followed the Republican agenda and has done very little for our people as she has always catered to the rich.
I finally read an intelligent piece regarding President re-elect Obama, and I thought, well, they will finally remove the label of us being dumb West Virginia hillbillies. Yes, us black folks, too. ... West Virginia people, get over it. He won. ... He's going to do it again. Release it. Get over it.
It's time to replace the bows on the wreaths that adorn the Southside Bridge area. They have faded from red to a ghastly orange. Replace them with gold bows that will not fade.
Does anyone know what happened to Ashley Smith, the weather girl at WCHS and WVAH?
What is worse than Shelley Moore Capito in the House of Representatives? Shelley Moore Capito in the Senate.
You know, after listening to the news and listening to these idiotic Democrats on TV, it makes me want to puke. I'm an independent. Have been all my life and always will be. These idiots don't want to make a deal. They want to see everything go over the cliff. So I say, Mr. Obama, give her the gas, son. We'll see what happens next.
In response to today's editorial about the Capito campaign, I'm getting very angry with the editor calling West Virginians less educated and less tolerant and we like God and guns. This will not help his buddy Rockefeller get elected. You never see Rockefeller in West Virginia. He stays in Washington with the urban, well-educated, affluent and culturally diverse and socially tolerant people.
What a mess. I cannot believe that the state Board of Education would consider putting someone in office who oversees one of the worst county school systems in the state. I had to buy books for my nieces from my county because in their classrooms there was one book. Look within the state but look where there are award-winning schools and leaders that have shown they can lead.
Colleges do not generally hold up sending transcripts because student loans are not paid. At their time of graduation, very few students have paid off their student loans and if colleges refused to send transcripts because of this, few students could go on to graduate schools, find well-paying employment, etc. Probably the real reason is this young lady has not paid a fine (parking), returned a library book, complied with a college sanction or paid lab fees, etc.
I and millions of other people getting close to Social Security age are getting tired of hearing how they need to cut SS. Come on, how about cutting welfare and Medicaid? At least the majority of SS benefits means someone has worked enough to receive them. How many welfare recipients can say that? I for one am tired of the threats to my future and health care.
Hard to believe a county politician who rolled in the mud at a fraternal lodge now has a beef with an MTV series showing W.Va. teenagers rolling in the mud!
When will miners realize they are pawns of the rich who want tax breaks on the backs of the middle class and manipulate hiring to make a political point so the prejudiced miner votes for Republicans? ... Miners you need to know who the real enemy is. He signs your paycheck.
Once, again, AEP is getting ready to start layoffs. Our politicians have nothing to fear, though, because the cuts will be only low paid management and office staff for which they could not care less and not union or hourly workers whom they coddle for votes.Mr. Kabler must not be aware of the fact that we DOH employees don't get holidays in the winter when snow is forecast. Neither do we get weekends, Sundays, anniversaries, kid's birthdays, Christmas or New Year's off. Yes, we work 24/7 when inclement weather is forecast. And after the June 29 storm as well as the October snowstorm. ... And no, we didn't have power at home or work for quite a while and for an average wage of about $10 per hour.
