To all you gun nuts supposedly worried about damage to the Constitution, where were you when the greatest damage to our Constitution, the Patriot Act was passed? You are apparently not worried that the government can monitor your phone calls, emails and other facets of your private business. Don't come crying now about losing your rights.
The "officials cost us the game" excuse at every level of every sport gets real old. Grow up, you "fans," and accept that you win some and you lose some but officials are rarely the reason.
Sean Hannity says that if a dozen intruders attack your home, which we all know happens often, and you have only 10 shots in your gun, you have a big disadvantage. What an idiot.
All the uproar about spending: Now is the time we should be spending more. Interest rates are low, and just as FDR did to get us out of the Depression, we should be spending to rebuild our infrastructure and put America back to work. To quote the great GOP leader Dick Cheney: "The deficit does not matter."
Perhaps we should fund armed guards for our schools with a special fee on gun and ammunition sales equal to what the guards would cost. Then it would be "revenue neutral" and not contribute to the deficit. Since armed guards are the only solution the NRA supports, they could show us just how sincere they are about it.
I admire Cross Lanes United Methodist Church because they are a large church, yet they just have a simple metal sign that points to their church instead of one of those expensive signs that churches use to try to outdo each other with the wittiest saying.
West Virginians are being taken to the bank by insurance companies while the state cozies up to them. We pay for protection from them and for protection for the environment but with little protections seen. We pay for it, the corporations benefit. We gave up a lot in lawsuits to lower our insurance a few years back. What happened?
I long for the good old days when you could attend a sporting event and most people were respectful and civil. Now it is constant yelling at the officials, tweeting or blogging a commentary on each play as it unfolds, and no one able to sit still for one minute. Sorry, but it just isn't for me.
When you hear the Republicans who control the U.S. House of Representatives pledge to not accept pay until Congress passes a budget, consider the 27th Amendment: "No law, varying the compensation for the services of Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened." Either these clowns do not know the content of the Constitution or they are liars.
For the Democrat that can't understand how a Republican can be for gun rights and anti-abortion. Well it is the exact same as you being against guns that that can be used to kill and then be all for the killing of innocent unborn babies. How can you sleep at night thinking that way? Remember, guns don't kill; the people that used the guns killed people.
So I saw the item in Saturday's paper about the kindergartner in Mount Carmel, Pa. It's obvious: The only way to stop a bad 5-year-old girl with a bubble gun is a good 5-year-old girl with a bubble gun.
It's coming up toward evening. Time to turn on the Lance Armstrong, inauguration, Kate Middleton and gun control news network. That's all there is on it.
I love the levee stage. If you need volunteers to clean it, just let the people know.
Some people think that criminals will obey gun laws. Now that's funny, I don't care who you are.
First it was "Friends of Coal," now "Gun Appreciation Day." Is there no end to the idiotic worship of inanimate objects, or are we going to be subjected to "Pocket Knife Week" or maybe "Toenail Clipper Month"?
