Status quo PC

The person who wrote the commentary on Jan. 3 must be related to Walter Brasch. It’s status quo thinking like this that was totally rejected and got Donald Trump elected. I didn’t vote in over 40 years; last year, I voted for Donald Trump. People are tired of political correctness.

Insurance call

Now is the time for every parent of a college-aged child to call their Republican representative to express their concern that repealing Obamacare would leave the child uninsured.

Nothing for us

Another year and no increase in Social Security, but our household expenses have gone up. What a disgrace, since our legislators received a substantial increase in salary and perks besides. Those immigrating to our country also fair out better than the working man who struggles all his life to raise a family to survive.

People magic

I want to thank the man and the ladies I did work with down at Paper Magic. My wallet happened to come open and my cards were all laying there and they brought them to me. I thank them very, very much. I wish I was still at Paper Magic. It was the best job I ever had. Too bad they had to close up.

Special delivery

Could somebody tell Rick Bozza that there’s a Dumpster on South Pearl Street and the owners do not have a permit displayed in the window. We all tried to contact him by mail, email and telephone.

Thanks for party

I would like to thank the Shamokin and Coal Township police departments for the great Christmas party that my niece and nephews were invited to and the gifts they received, and to those who helped make it possible. Happy New Year.

Naked liar in chief

For Trump, it seems to be if the truth were a bunch of leaves hiding our bodies, they are falling one by one. He’s not going to do this, he’s not going to do that. Another leaf, another leaf, another leaf. And so finally, in the end, he’s going to be proven to be a naked liar.

Crooked Don

Who’s going to pay for the wall? Who’s going to pay for the wall? We are. Maybe we ought to let Crooked Don pay for the wall.

Send him packing

For all the nit-wits who voted for Trump, making this offer that they’re willing to pay people a one-way ticket to Canada or out of the country. I’ll take them up on it. But it would be much cheaper just to pay for jet full of gas and send the damn fool over to Russia.

Snowed over

Shamokin Area School Distirct, what’s the matter with you guys? Last year we got one flake of snow and you had a two-hour delay. This year we have an inch and we don’t even have an hour delay. Don’t you know people can’t drive when there’s an inch of snow on the ground. Thanks for making my kid late for school today. Editor’s note: You’re whining proves the point that school officials can’t win when it comes to weather delays.

Foreign friends

You people really pickle me calling in about Trump and Putin. How about your present president who was over in communist Cuba dancing the maramba with some broad?
