Spendthrift  When we built our store we paid our share of fees to the township. What makes the county prison any different? I think the county should swallow their pride before they bite the wrong bullet. Everything cost money. Bus fuss What’s with all these old school buses painted black and white I see on the highway? There are people […]

Change course Mr. Mueller’s investigation found no evidence of any American knowingly participating in Russia’s election interference scheme. Maybe Mueller should investigate how Russia gained control of 20 percent of our short supply of American uranium? Hint: Start with Obama and Hillary. Editor’s take: There has yet to be a conclusion on the Mueller investigation. What was said last week is that […]

Impeachable  Since the FBI indicted 13 Russians for interfering with the elections, Trump made more than a dozen statements relating to the indictments. Not once has he expressed outrage that the Russians conducted an attack on American democracy. Not once has Trump warned Putin not to attack the 2018 election. Failing to take every possible action to stop an anticipated […]

Milquetoast I keep reading that Obama was the most divisive president in history, and I just don’t get it. He was a middle of the road milquetoast president. He passed the right-wing health care plan, “Romneycare.” He added five wars to the two we were already fighting. He never met a bank or corporation he didn’t love. He deported more people than […]

Crumbs Enjoy the increase of a few dollars in your paycheck. They are only crumbs compared to the billions of dollars corporate executives received. When Trump adds a $.25 per gallon federal tax on gas you will not be able to afford driving on the roads he wants to fix. Not in vain I have to give our local police […]

Pay at the pumps If Trump gets his 25-cent per gallon gas tax passed, you can say “good-bye” to at least 60 percent of the money you might have gained with the recent tax cut. Many wealthy people could care less since they drive electric cars. Mindbender  The Aurora movie shooter, the Garland church shooter, the Columbine killers and the […]

Stuff it  For all the people sending “thoughts and prayers” because of the latest slaughter in Florida, don’t bother. Do something real that might make a difference: Support common-sense gun laws, fight the weapons death culture and don’t vote for gutless politicians owned by the NRA. And to all the gun nuts who will attack this message, there’s nothing left […]

History repeats I just watched a new TV show called “Our Cartoon President.” It is a satire on the Trump presidency. Sadly, it is not far from the truth. It portrays Trump as out of touch and incompetent, a president who says outrageous things and lies at every turn. Does this sound familiar? Frog’s take: Yes, it does. There was […]

No thanks  Speaking of snow removal, Kulpmont always did a great job, but not this last time. They plowed the snow back onto our sidewalks and in front of our shoveled-out cars. Shoveling is hard work. Don’t do us any more favors. Proper inflation Oy, vey. Those complaining about the Super Bowl, for Pete’s sake, give it a rest already. The […]

Who loves ya, baby? I once read that hair was to men as breasts were to women. So maybe that is why such a big deal is made out of it. Just remember, some women find bald men sexy. So when you are losing your hair, think about that. I think it was Telly Savalas who played a detective on television. […]
