Crapping in the streets

The caravan heading to the U.S. border is mostly healthy, strong young men. They want to claim asylum because of poverty and no job opportunities in their country. Yet in our country, there are millions of homeless people living, urinating and defecating in the streets and there are able-bodied young men collecting welfare. While the United States gives millions in aid to these countries, charity begins at home.

Growth spurt

Obama said that we will never see a 3 percent growth again, it is the new normal, and now he is trying to take credit for Trump’s 4 percent growth.

Lesser evil

Why don’t these politicians running for office tell us what they are going to do to help us if they get elected? All they are doing is telling us how bad the other opponent is. I don’t know if I should vote for any one of them.

Big money

I know why those thousands of Central Americans are marching to the United States. They want to get in to play the big lottery.

Last patrol

The United States has tens of thousands of troops stationed in Europe protecting the borders from Russia. As we speak there are 7,000 invaders coming up into our country from Central America. Who is on our border?


There is no longer just Republicans versus Democrats, it’s Americans versus socialism.

Hot under collar

The wealthy politicians planning to cut Social Security and Medicare of the elderly must think they won’t have to stand before their maker to give an account of their works. One thing they are going to be able to cut is the heat where they are going.


Sound Off has become the anonymous venue for name-calling in the local media. Defamation, libel, maligning, slander, smearing and vilification are nothing more than a revelation of who we are. The psychology of name-calling is really quite simple, we hate ourselves and are looking for a quick way to feel better by throwing insults at other people. Typically, one throws the sort of insult at another that they feel about themselves. Unfortunately, while one may get a quick high from insulting someone, they still feel bad about themselves. It only shifts the focus for a little bit and then they are back to hating themselves again. Frog’s take: So, nothing has changed?

Quite a character

Jacob Karnofsky (James Karen) was born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. Karnofsky took his Coal Region work ethic to become one of the great character actors of our time. All My Children, The China Syndrome and Poltergeist are but three of more than 200 acting credits to his name. We should be Sounding Off the greatness that the coal region has produced instead of the political malice that has become the theme of the news media and the political operatives of both parties.

Take a hike

Who would set out on a long walking journey with no supplies and kids in tow? We have no jobs for our own citizens. We have so many needy people here, the working class cannot support anymore. I think there should be a revolt by the working class.

Nice trip

Special thanks to our professional coach driver on Tuesday’s trip to Sands Casino. Hope to ride with you again. Thanks for a safe trip.

Null and void

I know Jennifer Rubin is billed as a conservative writer at The Washington Post. I had an opinion about her article. I was not disrespectful to her. However, the editor made sure my opinion did not count by his comments. Editor’s note: Seemed you went beyond the article when you called her an “extreme, far-left, anti-Trump leftist.”

Take the pipe

Seems to me that the pipe bomber sent them to those who were promoting violence. Their violent comments were publicized by the media. President Trump has nothing to do with this.

Bully for you

I thought yesterday was going to be the day there would be no Trump bullying in Sound Off. I was wrong. wonder if it will ever happen.

Take a look

Trump Republicans are noted for vulgarity, insults, animosity, etc.? Please take a look at the comments of Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi. Three fine examples of the Democratic party. One more thing: Well said, Ken Young.
