To the person who couldn't understand President Obama's high approval rating: Most people understand what he has accomplished -- saved us from financial ruin. Besides, after George W. Bush, anyone would look good.
Concerning the high cost of medical care at Charleston Area Medical Center: My experience was minor surgery (although it took approximately four hours) and a one-night stay in the hospital. My CAMC bill was more than $43,000. Excessive, wouldn't you say?
Hear me, fellow independents, Republicans and Democrats. How could anyone vote on bills in our Congress without even having read them? An initial example of this is Obamacare.... In 2014 we must have a new Congress and it starts with each and every voter.
I am against the alternative fuel tax credit. Why should the taxpayers and the state of West Virginia give a large tax break to people just because they bought a new car?
You have your guns but lose your Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid as Rep. Capito voted to cut all benefits, by the way.
Duerring should leave Principal Giles alone. Mr. Giles knows what is best for the school. He is a very competent principal at a school that needs his input.
There is enough food wasted in Kanawha County schools to feed the hungry in West Virginia. There has to be a better way of knowing how many will eat lunch, then fix food accordingly.
Fox News keeps being criticized for slanting the news. A Pew report just out says 85 percent of MSNBC's content was opinion, compared to 55 percent on Fox and 46 percent on CNN. Where's Barney Fife when you need him?
President Obama won by a landslide. Notice I said "President Obama." You need to pay close attention to the crux of how and what would constitute drone attacks. What if you or your family were in harm's way?
Yes, I did notice that you "didn't say president before [President Obama's] name. Does that make you feel clever, witty or morally superior? All I see is disrespect.
If West Virginia public money is our henhouse, it's being guarded only by foxes. What would it take to get federal officials to "thin out" some of the foxes?
They keep blaming teachers but they passed tests qualifying them to teach. I see another reason they push these extreme policy changes: It's about paying for good teachers with their precious money.
Those pro-gun organizations should discount the cost of life membership, for what they advocate will certainly shorten the life expectancy of citizens.
I would like to see Sherrod Brown from Ohio be selected as vice president or even the next U.S. president. He is smart and seems to have common sense.
Since there is not much madness this March in West Virginia, how about having a W.Va. Invitational Tournament, which would include West Virginia University, Marshall University and Martinsburg and Tug Valley high schools. Then we could find out who had the best state team this year.
Republicans are strange. They like everything to be traditional and conservative except for their church services, which they like to be non-traditional, contemporary, rock and roll and liberal.
There are too many guns available to be controlled. Control ammunition with high taxes, a ban on Internet sales and background checks for each purchase. Ammunition control would not infringe on any Second Amendment rights.
The next time you hear Shelley Capito's friends talk about how cutting taxes creates jobs and will balance the federal budget, remember the G.W. Bush years. He cut taxes and, by the end of his second term, the value of the stock market and the associated retirement funds dropped.
The last line in the Second Amendment says "shall not be infringed." If I have a Class E felony that had nothing to do with guns, nothing to do with violence, nothing to do with anything else like that, why should I be restricted from having a gun?
Am I the only Christian who remembers President Ronald Reagan calling a fortune teller to the White House to advise him in making decisions for America?
