Listening to news from the Carolinas. New businesses. Expanding businesses. Job creation. Amazing what can happen with conservative Republican administrations.
Why doesn't West Virginia tourism promote us as a third-world state? After all, we have unsafe drinking water. We have primitive rituals of snake handling and couch burnings. We have the lowest-educated work force in the United States. We have indecisive leaders who allow out-of-state and country investors to pay substandard wages.
It is a horrible idea to steal from the Rainy Day Fund to pay for current expenses. It postpones the inevitable need to cut expenses or raise taxes. Politicians are experts at delaying tough decisions. What has happened to people who are not afraid of making unpopular but necessary choices?
As I went to the Legislative session today I saw several of the security guards smoking while on duty. Does this company really allow this? It's not a great first impression for our residents or visitors.
FEMA refuses aid for the water crises. Good. West Virginians, as always, will take care of themselves. This is just another example of how the Obama administration goes after its enemies. West Virginia failed to vote for Obama in two straight elections, it's time to pay the price.
Boy, oh boy. It's a big deal again for Republicans saying do not raise minimum wages. Save it for us. CEOs and management get millions upon millions in raises every single year -- but that's okay. America has been snookered out of stolen wages far too long.
Why are Kanawha County Schools not recycling the thousands of plastic bottles they are giving out? Do they not want to teach recycling?
It's a do-over by the Republican party, wanting to start a war and calling anyone who does not believe their hogwash someone less than American.
Just remember who took care of the soldiers that came back from the last war. It wasn't Republicans.
