In the coming weeks and months I'm afraid we're going to see the true coarseness and incivility of the NRA and the absolute rabid nuts that support what they call gun rights. Folks that do not understand the intention of the Second Amendment, the absolute bigotry and hatred will come out and it's going to play ugly in the press.
Other than Rockefeller, all West Virginia delegates speak against everything that the president tries to do and they criticize everything he tries to do. They don't care about the people, only maintaining those votes here in West Virginia. We need to watch very closely how they vote on all issues.
While attending a local college, when a problem came up in any class which required any calculations of math at all -- whether it be adding, subtraction, division or whatever -- when this problem would be announced, a collective groan would go up in the class because people were fearful of math. Don't make math a fearful subject.
To the [reader] who thinks because I didn't vote for Obama I am a DINO: For your information, not only do I have ethics and morals, I have intelligence. I don't worship socialism, fascism, Marxism or anyone who believes in any one of the three.
NRA and gun advocates say we need new mental-health reform, not new gun laws. Why can't we have both?
The NRA used to be a fine organization, and then the right-wing Republicans took it over and turned it into a political organization dedicated to getting right-wing Republicans elected to office.
Where is the justice for the slaughter of the 14 unarmed men and women by a Muslim maniac at Fort Hood several years ago?
Congress is at it again. Kicking the debt limit down the road for three months and creating another "crisis" when that time expires. There are no real permanent cuts to spending and I don't look for any out of this dysfunctional group of hypocrites. Deep cuts across the board to everything or steep tax increases for everyone. There is no other way.
Apparently the Kanawha County Commission needs more money for Kanawha County, and they must be jerking the assessor's tail. The assessor needs a dose of reality. You can't do it all on the back of homeowners.
Would you please explain the food programs for me? I heard a young man say he just bought $100 of food stamps from this young girl for $50. Now when he goes to the store, how does he spend these? I thought we had a tight control on this. Evidently we don't.
The closeness of Boeing and the FAA doesn't compare to the incestuous relationship the FDA has with the pharmaceutical companies.
If the GOP leaders would just read the papers, they have lost the election big time, except for West Virginia. The next election will not be any different here or national. G.W. [Bush] freed up assault gun sales and the rest is history, just like everything the GOP did.
[If] students with no ability to control their clothing are asked to wear uniforms, shouldn't our Board of Education be paying for them? Students grow fast and will need to wear outgrown uniforms just to attend. A very heavy burden for those with no resources.
I guess we can all feel safer now knowing criminals can no longer carry more ammo than law-abiding citizens can carry. For an educated guy, Mr. Obama doesn't have an ounce of common sense.
