You must vote even though most, if not all, politicians are dishonest. Our men and women have fought through the history of these United States of America in order for us to have the right to a democracy and the right to vote. Honor them with your vote. America needs to wake up before it is too late. The killing of the people at the Libyan embassy should never have happened. It was due to miscommunication. The question is, do you want Obama back in for four more years? The same thing that happened in Libya will happen to America. Harry Reid's attack on his fellow Mormon, Mitt Romney's character and practice of his faith, is shameless and disgusting. I'm not a fan of either candidate or of Mormonism, but the character of our leaders is disappointing. God help us. I see President Obama has the endorsement of Hugo Chavez. If I had a choice between the two of them, I think I'd go for Hugo. If you put someone in a nursing home, you had better have $7,000 a month to pay the nursing home bill or be ready to stay home 24/7. If I were Mr. Romney in the presidential debates, I would look Barack Obama in the eye and tell him I have the utmost respect for the office of the presidency of the United States of America, but for you personally it is hard to respect someone who wouldn't know the truth if it bit him in the backside.
This is to the person writing about children putting their parents in nursing homes: I don't think you know what you are talking about. I've taken care of three people with Alzheimer's. I've been spit on, beat on, and you can't do anything with them. Let me tell you something, honey. Unless you've walked in somebody else's shoes, don't talk about it. If you ever take care of somebody like this, you'll know where your limit is. You have to do something. Kanawha County must have a great financial situation. First they give all county employees a $1,000 across-the-board raise. Then they give Metro employees an additional $1,000 across-the-board raise. Over half of the sheriff's department received promotions. I recently watched two men planting flowers in the state Capitol flowerbeds at 1 p.m. in the rain with no rain gear. Whoever had them working like this in the rain should be fired. There is nothing worse than an uncaring supervisor.
Let's all join in and help the poor and the street people -- especially the veterans who went over there and fought for us. The prosecutor in Kanawha County should enforce the predator list. There are people who live closer to schools and children than they should. It is a shame that our children's education is suffering because unions want to place teachers by seniority, not by their ability to teach. We shouldn't even have teachers in unions. If you vote for Obama, it will continue the destruction of our country. I wish someone would tear down the old buildings on U.S. 60 in Shrewsbury. They are both eyesores and have been there way too long. Surely something else can be done with that property. If you think you are going any quicker by tailgating me, you might just be right. To all of my brother coal miners: Don't believe the Obama ad "lie" saying Romney is against coal. We all know who is really against coal since Obama said he would shut down all of the coal used in this country. We also know that the truth is not in Mr. Obama. I have stopped using the United States Postal Service for being the agent for paying my bills. I've totally lost confidence in them. Recently my heart medication was delivered to an address about a mile from my house. Mail carriers nowadays are more interested in talking on their cell phones instead of mail delivery. If the postal service is going bankrupt, they have no one to blame but themselves. The SSAC should investigate an incident at the recent South Charleston High School game at Cabell Midland. A large group of camouflaged people gave a Hitler salute and yelled, "Heil Hitler" at the South Charleston football team. WVU should burn all uniforms except for the traditional blue and gold ones. They usually win in those uniforms. Romney was merely stating a fact when he talked about 47 percent of Americans. He was not running them down. Man, if WVU would happen to win a national championship, what would they do, burn down the stadium? Or would they burn down the whole university? Why not the entire town of Morgantown? What kind of mentality does that? That is the stupidest thing I've seen or heard of. It has got to stop, doesn't it? I'll bet it was a pleasant surprise to read Rush Limbaugh's book. It was probably all made up while he was all doped up.
