I am so saddened and angered that the West Virginia Book Festival has been canceled. West Virginia has enough going against her. Now we are again taking a little more culture out of the lives of our citizens by canceling an event that is free to the public and opens up the world to many.
Until we fundamentally reform our tax code in a way that brings in more revenue, address demographic trends and rein in health-care costs, we can't claim to have achieved deficit reduction in an honest and meaningful way.
Would someone please tell me just how many stores in the city of Charleston the gun-ordinance bills in the Legislature would affect?
Books and authors bring other experiences and lives and ideas to readers. Why are libraries and the Book Festival on the chopping block? Every community needs a library. And West Virginia needs the Book Festival. I was able to meet my favorite author through this event. So sad others won't have that opportunity.
Would the brainiac Obamazombies who keep posting that the deficit has suddenly been reduced explain to the rest of us how a few days of trading on Wall Street did it? You tell us to quit listening to Fox. Maybe they should reduce their MSNBC intake.
Someone wrote in to use drug testing of gun permit holders to weed out dangerous criminals. Please read the newspaper and notice that robberies and murders are not committed by permit holders, who pay the sheriff's office to permit them.
For the individual who wants to get rid of Pete Thaw, we supporters will never do that because of his stance on the library, along with all his other stances. If you get rid of Pete Thaw, your taxes will be so high you won't have money to drive your car to the library.
Explanation for so many anti-Obama comments: sore-losing Republicans, party of the "no," whining and sifting through granules to find anything possible to complain about. Suck it up, losers! Stop your crying and complaining, you are just making yourselves look even more ridiculous.
The person asking if taxpayers or Obamacare have to pay when a thug gets shot and goes to the hospital has a valid question. However, the answer is the same. With either, the taxpayer is footing the bill for the thug. Because you know they don't have a job!
We just learned that the Republicans have a new motto: "Hope for change."
The only thing our House of Representatives and our Senate have in common is that they comprise the Congress. What they do not have is a sense of responsibility to this country and its citizens and, as important, to themselves.
