Your vents for Tuesday, January 15
I see where the mass murderers are pleading insanity. It makes no difference if they are insane or nuts. They are evil and wanted to kill a lot of people. They should be executed for their deeds, and I would be delighted to pull the switch on both of them.
Everyone has to call the PSC by Jan. 13 to fight the Water Company's raise. They deserve nothing.
The 2013 city of Nitro calendar is a very poor excuse for a calendar.
I saw here where the Vent Line said to dump all the politicians in the Potomac River. No, they can't do that. It is against the law. Think of all the pollution. No, don't dump all of that into the beautiful Potomac River.
The person who said that her grandson is going to have to pay $2,500 more a year on his small business: If he makes more than $400,000 a year, that isn't a small business.
I see where the Tech Park wants some millions now involved with the Gestamp. We need some millions to help pay our utility bills. Maybe the state could provide some help to us.
Make sure your voice is heard West Virginians. Let Joe Manchin know that you do not support his new stance on stricter gun regulations. It's time to flood his Senate email.
Ineptitude of the highest order now reigns in WVU athletics. We are destined for years at the bottom with our football and basketball teams. My allegiance, loyalty, and passion are now completely gone. I will find a good Division III program to root for.
I wish channel 7 would remove the Maury Show and Fox would remove Jerry Springer or at least put them on late at night. Children don't need to see these shows and most adults don't care for them either. Why would they be on in the middle of the day?
For the venter who wrote "The medium income for West Virginia is $43,000? I make $4,808 a year. Try living on that and being taxed:" If you are an American citizen with a valid Social Security number, and you earned that income, then you would be eligible to an Earned Income Credit of about $370. With two dependent children, this would increase to $1,930.
Anyone, of any party, who has made a career out being in a public office is responsible for the current mess of our nation. From the local level on up, we need strict term limits and they need to be enforced by the people. Enough is enough.
"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." - attributed to Samuel Adams.
I read about no West Virginian winning the Mega-Millions. I've hit a straight flush in a 10-handed poker game twice. What are the odds of that? It is called gambling.
I recently read that scabs have no backbone and work long hours for low wages and no benefits. UPS drivers make $34 an hour and FedEx drivers make about $20. Do the math. Who do you think will survive that battle? I guess we will see when the wounds heal with the scabs.
WVU fans need to rally behind Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide, the national champion. Holgorsen will never lift West Virginia to that level. You will never feel the elation you will feel unless you like Alabama.
