Obviously, everyone opposing a Bible class in school has no concept of the term “elective.” Let me help: No one would be forced to take a Bible class. Only those who choose to take the class would take it. I thought you all were avid supporters of “free choice.”

After three years of Democrats opposing the Electoral College because Hillary lost, they’re perfectly fine with their party manipulating the primary to help the candidate they want to win.

Two problems with Sunday editorial — print journalism isn’t saving Democracy and people don’t debate opinions because of print journalism. Most of today’s print journalism just pushes one side of issues. Without internet sites there would be no differing opinions and no debating of issues.

If a storm wipes out a beach, the feds spend millions to replace the sand. Stocks fall, they drop interest rates to help Wall Street. Bad trade policy triggered Jim Justice receiving $125,000. Why do we villainize people who get food stamps?

Why do WV DOT inspectors allow hundreds of tractor-trailers to use Teays Valley Road between the Hurricane and Teays Valley exits to avoid the weigh scale and inspection pull offs on I-64? These trucks are breaking the regulations.
