Your vents for Tuesday, December 18
BuckWild is not realistic. The actors aren't fat enough.
Please, people, when BuckWild comes on the television in January 2013, do not try to imitate the stupid rednecks.
Every politician in WV should take a stand against BuckWild before it ever premieres. It just goes to show that people will do anything for money.
Why don't they teach patrolmen how to direct traffic anymore? There are so many traffic tie-ups because they have two lanes instead of just one. It didn't use to be that way.
Why doesn't the Charleston Civic Center have shows like Miranda Lambert or American Idol? Why do they always go to Huntington? Is the price too high here? Thank you very much.
If you agree with someone, does it automatically mean you think they are a lord or a savior?
Attention, people of West Virginia, we are not a Confederate state. In fact, during the Civil War, we actually annexed and created our own state because the people in our area were so against slavery and in support of a larger government that we created the great state of West Virginia. The Confederate flag has no meaning here so stop using it.
Joyful Night was nothing more than a photo opportunity for the governor and his wife.
I'm venting about the copper theft in the local area. If they would check at the local weigh stations who is bringing it in, we wouldn't be losing power due to the copper being stolen.
I'm calling about the rate increase on the sewer bills in Nitro. I wonder if Gregg's Creek and the Eastwood area are in the city limits. If they aren't, we should not have to pay for sewer lines outside the city.
People who don't stand for the national anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag are not the people we fought wars for.
Sixty-five percent of American people think our government is broken and 89 percent think there should be spending cuts involved in the fiscal cliff discussions. However, Obama will let us go over the cliff if he doesn't get what he wants. So why was he re-elected?
If a person doesn't want to be part of a union, he shouldn't be forced to pay union dues, but if he is represented by that union, he should be forced to pay the cost that it entails.
It is a win-win for President Obama regarding the fiscal cliff because if the Republicans let the Bush tax era go, then the rich are still going to pay more taxes and the Republicans will get blamed for the middle-class taxes.
John McCain is a bitter, self-absorbed has-been. I'd like to pity him if he weren't so childish.
There have always been drugs, drug addicts and drug dealers in the South Hills area of Charleston and that is where most of the drugs come from going to the East End and the West Side. It has only been covered up by the big shots in Charleston.
Would someone please tell me when the St. Albans-Nitro Bridge is closing down?
You don't have to go any further than poor maintenance for the gas explosion in Sissonville. You can go anywhere in West Virginia in the hills and smell gas leaking.
You want to know how much my Silverado can pull? It can pull a space shuttle with a 747 behind it, uphill.
I wish they would leave the MTV series alone. Everyone doesn't like the Clay Center and the West Virginia Symphony. If they would bring the truck pulls back to Magic Island, they would draw 10,000 people for a weekend - just saying.
I love the fact that we have a true Mountaineer now as a mascot at WVU. He should make himself a bearskin cape.
Social Security does not contribute to the budget deficit one iota. In fact, it has been running budget surpluses. It is the Republicans, of course, who have always hated Social Security and are bent on its destruction. It is the illegal aliens and all of these illegal wars we have been fighting that contribute to the budget deficit and the irresponsible congressional spending.
Please, Danny Jones, when your workers pick up recycling, have them put the containers back where they were found. Also, when the trash men drop trash behind the truck, pick it up and don't leave it lying in the middle of the street.
The Florida Gator fan who bad-mouthed WVU's bowl should just shut their grit hole and be glad they can enjoy living in Mountaineer land.
I see where they want to lower the standards for the state superintendent of education's job. I wonder how low they have to go to make Gayle Manchin eligible.
The only way we can keep greedy American companies from using overseas slave laborers is to become slaves ourselves. Make the rich more rich and kill the unions and there will be no middle class. Families today are raising and educating families through what the unions have gained in the last 70 years.
Seventy-four percent of guns that were purchased in the fast and furious scheme haven't been accounted for, and a lot of them have ended up in crime scenes the day after they were purchased. This is far from over.
It would be nice if the cities in this area would have Christmas parades on different days to avoid conflicts in schedules and we could attend all of them.
I respect Mr. Giles. Unfortunately two students and one parent don't understand respect. I feel sorry for them.
Congress is really concerned about the fiscal cliff. They have taken off more days than any other Congress in history. They are pathetic.
