Press your luck

Donald Trump ought to learn to keep his big mouth shut. Let the secretary of state handle North Korea. In the meantime, Donald Trump better start worrying about these storms coming. 


Well, I can see that Frog is back to work again because he doesn’t put anything in there that hurts Donald Trump. He is no different than Donald Trump. He doesn’t care about this country. When Donald Trump talks about fake news, he is talking about you and your newspaper. Frog, wake up and take a smell of the coffee. Frog’s take: Caller, you are making me long for my hospital bed. 

No vacancy

I am calling in response to the article that Mr. Milbrand has discussed having one hotel in the area for that Jeep event. There are also several bed and breakfasts in the area that could be utilized. 

Help us

President Trump wants to fulfill all his campaign promises during the election. Why doesn’t he fulfill the most important one that he has made, which was providing the American people with better health care at a fraction of the cost? This would help the American people. 

Knowing God

I ask you, do your children know the “Our Father?” Do you know the “Lord’s Prayer?” Do your children know that you know God? It’s important. Let them know that you turn to God. Teach them.

Do as I say

The congressmen who refuse to act on gun legislation of any kind are protected from guns by guards, secret service, capitol police and metal detectors. To hell with the rest of us. Frog’s take: On the other side of the coin, the congressmen and women who push for gun legislation also enjoy the same protections from armed guards, secret service, capitol police and the like. To hell with the rest of us.

Killing kind

Three percent of households own half of all the guns in America. Why can’t we pass laws for gun control? Semi-automatic rifles should be illegal. If you need to hunt with one, you should find some other sport. They are killing machines. High-capacity magazines should be outlawed. If you need more than 10 bullets you must be a terrible shot.


We allow 33,000 Americans to be slaughtered by guns annually, our excuse being that we must defend Second Amendment rights. Somehow “peacefully” taking a knee in the deference to First Amendment rights is demonized.

For the people

The NRA spent $30 million backing Trump. If you want to change gun laws in the United States, the NRA threatens to vote congressmen and women out of office. Eighty-five percent of U.S. citizens want comprehensive background checks. So, in short, the NRA is basically a terrorist group against the people.
