I am coming 80, and have never in my lifetime seen this country as divided as it now is. White and black, rich and poor, Democrats and Republicans. There has always been some division, but this president and Congress have been responsible for magnifying the differences in these areas. Our only salvation is that the next election will rid us of more of these greedy career losers, and if we can hang in there long enough, perhaps turn this ship around.
If any NASCAR fan out there has any pull with the system, have them get the Gaither Vocal Band to appear at one of the major races and sing "Let Freedom Ring". There will not be a dry eye at the track, and this will bring the best entertainment for all to see and hear.
The great sport of football takes a nosedive when the cameras pick up the coaches and players and their plainly evident profanity and antics on the sidelines. This is the message being given to our young people. I hope the Ravens coach sees the films of the game and realizes what a spectacle he made when the lights went out. No class.
I'm sorry but Beyoncé and her music do nothing for me.
Perhaps we should fund armed guards for our schools with a special fee on gun and ammunition sales equal to what that would cost. Then it would not contribute to the deficit. Since that is the only solution the NRA would support, they could show us just how sincere they are about it. Oh yes, and better put the guards on school buses as well.
I have a solution to the growing opioid addiction problem in the state. Why don't we make it illegal to prescribe these dangerous drugs? They should only be available within a clinical setting.

I have followed WVU basketball for over 50 years. Bob Huggins is a coach I would not allow my son to play for. I would discourage any athlete from signing up to play for him.
For about 1970 years, almost all businesses closed Sundays and few Christians voluntarily worked Sunday. Then Republican Christians got liberal with their supposed faith because it was more important to them to make money and do chores on Sunday than to rest like God commanded.
