CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The top front page of the Gazette on Wednesday had a Huggins photo with phrase Any Hope Left? across the top. Next to it was the phrase Course Work. No matter what I did, my mind read it as Any Hope Left? Course Not.
Hey, thanks to the person who called again to "remind everybody ... that this President ... is the worst thing that ever happened" to the country and that we'll "soon find that out." Clearly the majority of voters disagreed after four years, but don't let that intrude on your personal reality, Sunshine. You hang right in there.
Now it's out that married Republican senator Pete Domenici fathered a child with the Republican daughter of another Republican senator. If Republicans are so conservative, Christian and family-values oriented, why is it I can name 10 times more Republicans who have cheated on their spouses than Democrats? What phonies.
Blaming the stimulus program for Routergate is like blaming the money for a bank robbery.
I have a silly question. Why hasn't the city taken the profits from all those millions of tourist dollars spent at the Civic Center and deposited a portion, say 10 to 15 percent, into an escrow account for maintenance expenses and upgrades as needed? Seems all the politicos want to do is take the profit and spend it and when new revenues are needed do what politicians love to do -- raise taxes.
Four West Virginia coal miners died in the last two weeks. It appears that Earl Ray Tomblin is trying to catch up with Joe Manchin, whose record on mine safety was the worst in the last 50 years. The only protector the miners ever had was the UMWA. Since Trumka and Roberts destroyed the union, miners are on their own.
Politicians seem to always find money to persecute and take away rights of those without the ability to fight back. Drug testing for drivers licenses and welfare. Someone in power must own drug-testing facilities.
No waiting and easy access to all manner of guns for the law-abiding person also means easy access for the felon, the crazy person with a grudge, the depressed, the child or teen who gets a hold of their parents' gun. The more guns, the greater the odds of them being used for the wrong purpose.
There needs to be a congressional investigation as to why oil futures are dropping like rocks, while the price of gas at the pump is skyrocketing.
It is time for the DNR to recommend to the Legislature a bill to make crossbows legal for archery hunting in West Virginia. Many of the surrounding states have crossbow hunting and would come to West Virginia, spend money, and hunt here.
You social liberals are the most hypocritical judgmental people of all. I will bet anything that so many of you are guilty of the things you like to accuse evangelical fundamentalist Christians of. Cheating on your wives, abandoning helpless animals, and so on.
So now we know why the state Legislature wants to raise the gas prices for everybody in West Virginia. It's to pay for the pay raises. Are they crazy doing this right now? Please, we should vote every one of them out of office except the ones who votes against this pay raise.
The case of the man who tortured 29 dogs to their deaths makes the case for dispensing a criminal's punishment identical to his or her crime.
Gasoline prices have gone up 50 cents in a week and we're now at $3.89 a gallon and not one person has said anything about it. What a shame.
To the reader who said he was a hunter and a gun owner, the NRA don't speak for him. From your comment, I'd say you're not very good at either one.
Prayer was taken out of public schools in 1963 by the Supreme Court. The majority were Republicans. Abortion was legalized in 1973 by the Supreme Court. The majority were Republicans.
In response to the person blasting Bush over 9/11, why did Clinton ignore and tell them not to kill bin Laden when they had him back in the '90s?
I would like to thank you, gutless Legislature. Every time the price of gasoline goes up, our gasoline tax goes up and then you want to increase the gas tax again?
To all these people who are complaining about the post office and the federal government, the last I heard, the post office isn't under the federal government any more. So someone needs to get their facts straight.
This is for the gun nuts that think their ownership of guns is what other countries fear in taking over America. If some country wanted to take over America's superpower, they would drop nuclear bombs. Your gun isn't going to do anything versus a nuclear bomb.
Republicans calling in complaining about the president flying all over the country in Air Force 1. He would not have to do that if Republicans in the House and Senate would let legislation have an up or down vote. What are they afraid of, that something might pass that would be good for the country?
This is to the Republicans that's saying that Social Security is an entitlement program because it's paying out three times what it takes in. Let me hold that money for 30 or 40 years, and I can pay you out 10 times what you paid in.
Since the emblem on police cars to protect and serve means nothing in this day and time, I think that that emblem should be removed from all police vehicles and be replaced with the swastika.
Seconding the motion for real true justice for Jorea Marple. Well said, reader.
I think most Republicans who claim they're church members belong to the church of the GOP, not the church of the GOD.
Every time I turn a channel on television to watch something, there's a lawyer wanting you to sue a doctor or somebody, and I get tired of hearing it. I would never think about suing a doctor or anybody else just to get money.
How do you like these $4 gas prices? How do you like Obama breaking some of the Ten Commandments? Thou shalt not steal. When he takes money out of your paycheck against your will, he's a thief.
I just saw a Kanawha County sheriff's deputy talking on his telephone in his car. I was going to pull a Gomer and pull him over and say "citizen's arrest."
We can't complain about transparency from our new attorney general Morrisey. No secrets. He's here to get rid of trinkets and to protect us from the feds. Now would he please help West Virginia come up with a state gun control law to protect us from the NRA?
