Has everyone forgot? Because Joe Manchin quit his governor job to be a US senator, it cost us taxpayers more than $1,000,000 for a special election. Now he doesn’t like his senator job and wants his governor job back.

The neo-con smear of legitimate news media is an effort to sow fear, suspicion, and ignorance to divide people and make them easier to control. Unfortunately, it’s working brilliantly.

Today’s venter made an excellent argument for the use of round-a-bouts in other nearby cities, and how they have been helpful with traffic flow. Then he felt it necessary to disparage the character and intelligence of people in this state by calling them backwoods. I think he revealed more about himself than he did my fellow citizens.

The newly renovated and completed par course/track at Danner Park in the Fort Hill area of South Hills is beautiful. However, the soft stone gravel is not safe, or easy for bikers, walkers, runners or parents using a baby stroller.

It is sickening that the Border Patrol has taken thousands of children from their families with no intention of reuniting them. They created thousands of orphans. This is really criminal.

We teach our children it’s wrong to lie. We don’t allow anyone to lie in court and we won’t tolerate any adult lying to us in our everyday lives. This said, why do we not stand up against the lies from our media and our elected officials. Truth matters.

Married Republicans having inappropriate extramarital relationships with interns — family values at their best! The hypocrisy of the GOP never fails to give me a laugh.

It would appear that WV AG Patrick Morrisey is still working for the drug companies!

The older women who dumped the kittens were probably part of a catch and release program. Last I heard the shelter wasn’t accepting kittens/cats at the moment. It’s also very hard, if not impossible, to tame feral animals. Spay/neuter and return is the next best option.
