On the hate team

If an illegal immigrant did something wrong toward Nancy Pelosi or her puppet, Sen. Schumer, the wall would be built and the government shutdown would be over. But the American people’s lives can’t compare with the hate they have for Trump. So sad.

Penny pincher

The United States spends $55 billion a year on foreign aid. We are something like $21 trillion in debt. Don’t give a penny on foreign aid until we straighten our own problems out. We can’t even take care of the people we do have. Also, keep the post offices open only three days a week. It is losing $11 billion a year.

House that Jack built

Nancy Pelosi served notice Wednesday that President Donald Trump won’t be allowed to deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. Would somebody please look up to the deed to that building and see who’s name is on it? I’m sure it isn’t Nancy Pelosi’s.

Peace sells...

I am so tired of hearing all the arguments on the news about the government and the shutdown and Trump. I just wanted to ask everyone why do we have to elect a president at all? Why do we have to bow down to him or her? And a Senate and a House of Representatives who are mostly millionaires. I thought we the people meant us. We have many brilliant minds in the United States that could change everything. I am confident that we could figure it out as we, the people.


I would like to know why some people are so concerned about immigrants when we have such trash in the White House.

Fight for your right

Just because I am pro-choice does not mean I am pro-abortion. It means I understand that your choice is none of my damn business and I will always fight for your right to choose.

They will come

I think having a decent hotel/motel in the Shamokin/Trevorton area is a great idea. I think if we build it they’ll come. Also, I often wondered why Knoebels never built a hotel near the park so that families could come and stay for a week rather than just one day. Elysburg would be the best choice for that. In a few months we’ll be having class reunions and that would really help in getting people to come back to the area and spend some time.

Prison puzzle

The arrest of Roger Stone, Trump’s friend of 40 years, is another piece of the puzzle that is the Russian investigation. When Mueller puts the pieces together, it will show a picture of Donald Trump in a jail cell. Lock him up.

Got to go

I live in an apartment building in Mount Carmel that’s owned by a scumlord. The latest tenant moved out yet the place is full of flies — in January. The place has got to go. Editor’s take: We hope your first call was to code enforcement.

Chair toss

There are chairs out in the 900 block of Walnut Street all the time, sunshine or snow, reserving a parking space. If I need a parking space, I’ll throw them out in the street. The police go by and just close their eyes.
