Can we impeach Mitch Carmichael? Asking for a friend.

I went to both public and a private school. I got twice the education in the private school and that prepared me for college and it made college much easier. One thing remained the same however, the kids that joked around and had a good time instead of studying didn’t amount to much. I see them today and use them as examples to my kids of what not to do and what not to be.

It takes two to create a baby. So it only makes sense that it should take two to make any decisions regarding that baby unless it’s a result of a rape. Once the woman is pregnant it’s no longer all about her.

People complain about fireworks way too much. It’s a few times a year. Lighten up. I have a neighbor that complains about noise, kids playing, dogs barking, fireworks, but the majority of the noise in our neighborhood comes from her husband playing on his equipment and yet we don’t complain to her. I told her she can’t have it both ways. Kids play. Dogs bark. She’s needs to get a life.

Why do WVU sports teams choke when a big game is on the line? This has happened over and over in the past. There is no way you are supposed to lose a baseball game after leading 9-1.

If our city council is ready to pass an ordinance that pushes back protesters at the abortion clinic — will they now consider passing an ordinance to push back loiterers and panhandlers in front of businesses? I am tired of the nonsense in front of the Capitol Market and on Capitol Street. Something needs to change right now.

All schools should teach facts. Respecting different beliefs and points of view doesn’t mean disrespecting scientific evidence.

Thoughts and prayers, you all, thoughts and prayers.

Businesses keep changing their operations to justify hiring college degree geniuses who know everything. To prove they learned something in school they have to change things that have worked fine for years. When it fails they then try to explain it didn’t fail. We just don’t see the “big picture.” I’m not sure there really is a “big picture.”
