The market's hitting new all-time highs. Banks are solid again. Construction is up. Jobs report is the best in eight years. When we go to church, we need to thank God for sending us President Obama.
Regarding "Unequal: Sad American gap." Look at our own valley. Once there were thousands of chemical plant jobs. Those jobs raised the living standard for ordinary West Virginians. Those jobs are now in India, China or elsewhere.
Requiring students and employees in Kanawha County Schools to obtain a doctor's excuse is overtaxing the already-overbooked doctor's office and enabling unnecessary exposure to airborne illnesses in these settings. This seems ridiculous when they have untreatable conditions such as simple colds.
The WCHS radio program with Dave Weekley is the most worthless <t40>...<t$> show on the radio. It is not a public service, or even interesting, but keeps listeners ignorant and uninformed about real issues that matter by focusing on sports and social fluff. Cancel it.
I live for a day when this country stops fighting. The Democrats blame Bush and the Republicans blame Obama. Why can't we all agree that neither have been any good for us and maybe it's time for a new direction?
Remember, concerning the killing of various civilians by Middle East countries: One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.
Concerning the efforts of the Bush apologist to shift the blame of 9/11 onto Bill Clinton, saying he should have "got him," I'm sure he was on our intelligence agencies' radar before Clinton, so I ask why didn't George H.W. Bush or Ronald Reagan "get him?"
The NRA says to "enforce existing gun laws." Well enough, lets make sure convicted felons do not have guns in their possession by frequent unannounced vehicle and home inspections. And while we're at it, let's pass universal background checks.It's hard for me to imagine that people of this great country we live in are so stupid! Our founding fathers built this country on the principles to protect us from all enemies, foreign and domestic! Wake up people, guns cannot fire themselves!
