Private schools should not use my tax dollars to teach things I don’t agree with. An Islamic school that teaches jihad, or an anti-science school that teaches only creationism, could end up with the taxes we paid for public schools.

We have a governor who won’t pay his taxes or fines and a president who orders a staff member to defy a subpoena. The lawlessness among our elected leaders is setting a bad precedent that will give lawyers a new, innovative defense strategy that’s easier to prove than temporary insanity.

Evil can appear to be good.

The people with the anti-South Charleston signs in their yards must be pretty gullible believing everything they hear without asking for facts and explanations. Not hard to figure how they cast their vote for president.

Why must the Legislature spend more of our money, going into special sessions to correct their mistakes. Don’t they pay a bunch of high-priced lawyers to keep this from happening?

The needle exchange program was bad for our police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, other first responders and also the public in general. Needles were everywhere. The program went away and so did the needles laying everywhere. The program created a health hazard for the population. To be honest I don’t really care if it was good for the addicts or not. They are not the ones I worry about.

For someone with nothing to hide, the president sure spends a lot of time trying to hide something.

Wow! Those record-breaking storms, floods, and tornadoes! Just imagine how bad they’d be if global warming weren’t a fake news Chinese hoax!

If Mayor Goodwin goes along with the idea that Kanawha-Charleston Health Department should go back to handing out needles in large quantities, and not actually exchanging them for proper disposal, she should only be a one-term mayor.

Adam Schiff and other Democrats are mistaken if they trust anything the Justice Department tells them. They need to proceed with subpoenas without pause and immediately take enforcement action because the administration is stalling in every way possible including lying.
