Iron irony The effects of Trump’s tariffs get better, Mr. Bomboy. Trump’s tariffs hit tractor and other machinery parts as well. I don’t know how Trump can claim to be a friend of the farmer when his own policy will force farmers to pay more to keep their equipment running. The irony is that Mr. Bomboy, in other instances, supports […]

The working hour How is it possible that anyone can work 40 hours and have an ACCESS card? Poles apart If we want positive change in our country, please consider voting for candidates who are proven or are willing to work across the aisle. For 28 years, I have voted for one party. This November, that will change, and I […]

WW III Thanks, Donnie, for bombing Syria. Thank you for starting World War III. You and the rest of the Republicans and Democrats who voted for any kind of intervention in Syria. Hello from the gutter As Michael Cohen crimes unfold, the sleaze factor of Trump’s life becomes known to the investigators. Will we ever be able to climb out of […]

Power mad Donald Trump is not the president of all Americans, he is a political cult leader. Trump only cares about his base and determines his actions by what will please these voters. Nothing seems to matter to Trump but the adoration and power that comes from his uninformed followers. The way of the region  The closing of businesses is […]

A conspiracy  Trump is crying that attorney-client privilege is dead. Attorney-client privilege is only revoked when the attorney and his client are together involved in unlawful activity. So if Trump loses his attorney-client privilege it means that he and Cohen conspired to commit a crime. Over their heads  Zuckerberg’s testimony was a classic case of speaking Greek to the heathen.

Instead, it is a breeding ground for Antifa Nazi Brownshirt fascist who use Nazi tactics to burn literature and violence to silence conflicting ideas. Before the clueless try to re-educate me, I remind them that the acronym national socialism in German is […]

Show us the money About those young adults getting money in Florida to protest. They’re not dumb. They know the only way to get Congress’ attention is through money. Upholding the law  For the record, the U.S. Attorney, Geoffrey Bergman, who authorized the raid on Trump’s lawyer is a life-long Republican and the former partner of Rudy Guiliani. Bergman gave […]

No pride As I got ready to go to work today, I pull up The News-Item and there the two articles are about meth and heroin busts in the city. The pictures of those three young men make me realize this area is finished. The coal region was never going to be an upscale area with a Rodeo Drive, but […]

Swamp troll I thought Trump was draining the swamp? Then why is he supporting EPA Director Scott Pruitt, the ultimate swamp thing? He has a 19-man security detail that cost taxpayers $3 million, he installed an expensive soundproof phone system, accepted almost free housing from an oil lobbyist, wasted thousands on travel and much more. Yet Trump says this guy […]
