Socialism is where you take money from people who have earned it and give it to people who haven’t earned it.

Attention: If you have used anything, and I do mean anything, on this planet you may be illegible for monetary compensation. Just call the law firm of Steele, Cheatum, and Robb today.

It’s a shame that all major networks feel it necessary to broadcast Trump’s daily hatred, racism and lies. People can watch Fox if they are interested in his daily spewing of tweets and other un-American ranting and actions.

We pay high taxes in this state to drive on horrible roads, which is crazy. I think actually the state should be paying us to drive on such deplorable roads. The state should also have to pay for any damage caused by their horrible roads or the deer that they fail to keep thinned out.

I feel you should be called a hero only if you put your own life at risk to save another person or animal! If you are not putting your life at risk, you are not a hero.

My 14-year-old grandson could do a better job of road repairs than the Putnam County Division of Highways workers. They can’t even repair a pot hole without turning it into a speed bump.

What drunk painted the lines at the Cross Lanes/Goff Mountain exchange? I saw several near crashes just over the weekend.

Gun control is not a matter of keeping people defenseless. Gun control reduces the risk of gun violence. It is obvious that fewer assault weapons would reduce the risk. However, Trump, the NRA, and Republicans would prefer we all arm ourselves with assault weapons instead.

I might go along with public hangings of drug dealers provided they’re CEOs of the drug companies that dumped pills in WV. But China has a death penalty for drug abuse yet their drug problem is on the rise.

I think the people that stand around protesting women’s health care could find something else to keep them busy, like maybe being a foster care parent. That is if they could pass the background check.

Some people seem to only blame white supremacy for our domestic terror problem. That’s not right. Anyone that places one race above another is racial supremacy. It’s all wrong, one racial supremacist is just as bad another.

The Wheeling Jesuit University financial woes are another example of former bishop Michael Bransfield’s Marie Antoinette “Let Them Eat Cake” Attitude. He bought the failing financial Wheeling Jesuit University and now all West Virginia Catholics are stuck with it, in addition to all the flas…

My town police, by and large, seem to be inept and in many cases corrupt. They don’t enforce curfews, turn their heads to known drug activity, and let their buddies off the hook. Don’t get me started on the do nothing mayor. People can’t get problem properties cleaned up or little punks arre…

When I watch these members of Congress grandstanding by yelling, screaming, being rude and talking down to the ones who are testifying, I remember that I was brought up that all of those things usually show that the person has a low IQ and are trying to over-compensate for it.

I watched the Democrats beat up on Robert Mueller today. The Democrats only quoted everything already in the Mueller report and Mueller just confirmed it. What a waste of government money and time. All they did is confirm that President Trump is innocent.

Have been without phone service for three days and received no help or reply from the company. Do not have dial tone on my phone.

If all the people that complain about climate change would just move off the grid and not own vehicles and live without their luxuries and without electricity and natural gas, our climate would improve.

I am on a fixed income and therefore have to be frugal with my money. My doctor wanted blood work, so I went to Montgomery Hospital on the day you private pay as it’s cheaper than insurance. According to the paper I was given for what I needed was $45. But when paying it was $47.25. They sai…

Every day this former Democrat is alive I dislike liberals a little bit more. They completely corrupted the once-proud party that I joined that was conceived to represent the working people of this country. I miss my party. I can’t stand what it has become.

With the extremely high personal property taxes, high fuel taxes, doubled registration fees, and the ridiculous MVI fees there is no good reason for this state to have such deplorable roadways.

I am just a dumb hillbilly who graduated from our failing public schools, and a WV college or two, but if someone gave me $150 million, I can cipher and that comes to almost $3 million per “almost exclusively mobile” 51 homes. Lucy, you got some splainin’ to do!

“Go back ...” and “MAGA” has nothing to do with going back to segregation times. By saying they do and repeating that claim, all you’re doing is showing all your friends how you let media and talking head comments control your opinion.

There is nothing radical about the policies supported by the “Squad.” Expansion of Medicare is status quo. The real extremists are right wing reactionaries who want to return to serfdom.

Perhaps the newly legalized charter schools in West Virginia should be used to educate students who have behavior issues that prevent other students from receiving instruction in regular schools. Test scores would soar. A great idea for Republicans to consider.

The soccer tournament and Multifest didn’t bring millions of dollars into the valley. The tournament brought in millions, Multifest recirculated local money already here.

To the venter who criticized Melania Trump for visiting Huntington. Would you rather that she ignore West Virginia? The last administration not only ignored West Virginia, they stomped on it with disdain.

Well, finally the FCC is addressing the robocalls that we all get everyday. You may already notice that some of the robocalls have stopped. I’ve noticed that when the robocalls have subsided that my junk mail has increased 10-fold. So if the robocall company also has your e-mail address the …

I couldn’t disagree more with Phil Kabler’s assertion that West Virginia’s shrinking population is due in part to our lack of hospitality. People who visit here invariably express the friendliness and helpfulness they encounter.

I know you’ve been told before but you still haven’t listened. Being pro-choice does not mean believing that women should use abortion as birth control. It means all modern medical services should be available to all women, and their personal intimate decisions are none of your business. You…

It amazes me the Washington elite Democrats continue to carry on about the “rights” of so-called migrants, when just around here there are so many in need. When progressives talk about sacrificing for these people, they for sure don’t mean themselves, AOC and her ilk included.

Dear athletes and entertainers, I couldn’t care less about your skin color or who you want to sleep with. When you start talking politics I turn you off. You’re no longer entertaining. Life long soccer fan, didn’t watch World Cup because of the drama. Thanks for nothing.

It is great to see that our United States military weapons are being showcased in DC on July 4th. The best president since President Reagan.

We fact check because we want the truth. You don’t because your gullible enough to believe Fox News and the clown in the White House.

Teachers, parents and those who care about public education, let’s not be discouraged. Let’s get to work to elect good people who will undo the charter schools.

No person with any level of education or knowledge can look at the Betsy Ross flag and rationally conclude the image promotes slavery. I am disgusted by the actions of Nike.

Making Virginia and Randolph two-way is a terrible idea. The intersections at Pennsylvania are already the most dangerous in town. Why complicate them? Will east of the Elk River be two-way too? Of course not, traffic would be jammed. Mark Sadd is a crackpot.

On these Presidential debates why can’t the moderators simply shut off the microphone when the candidates abuse their allotted time?

Congratulations and thanks to Mayor Goodwin, her staff and all city workers who got the cleanup work done so quickly and efficiently. We thank you all for your leadership.

Oh please stop with the poor refugee posts. If they are simply fleeing violence in Central and South America, then Mexico would be their first refuge. They want a welfare check.

Christopher Regan’s article says it all. I am afraid that God will punish our wicked country for the atrocities we commit even today against these refugees. Shame!
