President Obama is going after global warming to distract our attention from his Benghazi mess. In the meantime he flew out to California again for six fund raisers, burning tons of jet fuel and recklessly spewing carbon dioxide.

The Republicans’ obsession with Benghazi is obviously just to gain votes. If not, the Republican House of Representatives would have held hearings in 2001 to really determine the cause of the 9/11 attacks, but they didn’t.

Two recent items in the Readers Voice need refuting: John Kerry may be a lot of things, but he is no chicken hawk. A chicken hawk is someone who desires war, but never served. John Kerry won the Silver Star for bravery in Vietnam. Another person said that George W. Bush’s deserting his unit during the Vietnam war was no worse than college students going to Canada to avoid the draft. Wrong. Bush committed a felony, the college students didn’t.

I always love to hear the liberal Democrats pointing fingers at George W. Bush for being in the National Guard over going to Vietnam, and his attendance record while in the National Guard. At least he did something. These very people that bash Bush step all over themselves over Bill Clinton. Clinton is a admitted draft dodger that left the country to avoid service to his country. So which is worse?

Keystone cops could not mess up the Mark Plants case more than what the lawyers, magistrates, prosecutors and judges have done so far. This is evidence of how competent our court system is at the present time. I am so disappointed that Mayor Jones felt the need to add to the farce.

Guns are not the problem with all the shootings in your city. Get rid of the drugs and gang activity and most shootings will stop. Ban guns in your city and these same people will have guns along with illegal drugs. They break the law for a living.

Now that Obamacare is a success, the Republicans and their propaganda outlet, Fox News, have quit talking about Obamacare and are concentrating on the Benghazi tragedy in the hopes of getting some votes from the undecided and the mentally challenged. Their methods are so obvious they are ridiculous.

Please don’t demolish Top-O-Rock. I would love the opportunity to live there and make sure no one else vandalizes it. That beautiful house is a Charleston icon.

Hillary Clinton’s anti-gun rhetoric will polarize the next presidential election between those who believe in the Second Amendment, and those who don’t. As a Democrat, I fear for my party. Judgment is never made by what’s right and what’s wrong anymore. Everything is judged by politically correct or not, everything has to be politically correct.

It’s been 10 years now and I am just wondering if Cecil Roberts has forgot about the boys over here at Cannelton Coal Company.

NBA owner Donald Sterling of the L.A. Clippers proves that you can still be rich and be a snake in the grass, not worthy to be in society as we know it.

I enjoyed Rick Steelhammer’s article on Fort Hill and the history behind it. I think we need more articles like that in the Gazette.

Can someone tell us whom to contact to get the streetlights fixed in Kanawha City?

Can the state not do something about the statue of President Lincoln that is up on the Statehouse lawn? It looks horrible. It is in terrible shape.

To the person that said anyone who believes they have to carry a gun shouldn’t be considered good. I attend a church with a state trooper; I consider him good.

My son is in kindergarten and has ADHD and learning disabilities and will not be passing kindergarten this year. Is there a summer program in the area that can help a student with learning difficulties, especially with writing his letters?

The system is what it is called in West Virginia, you vote to keep those who keep you. The system beats the heck out of working.

We need our Kroger at Quincy back. You go to Kanawha City and you are lost even though they put out a map for you.

In West Virginia, we don’t just say we have the best politicians that money can buy, we can give you a lot of names. God save West Virginia from crooked politicians.

If you don’t like what’s going on in Washington and our West Virginia Legislature, please get out and vote on Election Day.

The town of Belle needs a barber shop so people will have a place to loiter instead of the city clerk’s office. These clerks have work to do.

Danny Jones is our only hope.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I can’t see myself taking my grandchildren in a church that allows people to carry firearms during services. This makes no sense at all to me.

North, East, West, South, you know Joe Manchin is lying when he opens his mouth.

tell us where to find ramps.

I wonder if these people who keep harping about socialism really understand what socialism is all about. We’re not even close to being socialistic.

The problem with the White House is Barack Obama, unqualified leadership.

Republican Congresswoman Capito stands for nothing but the Republican agenda. She speaks for them on all causes.
