Pay for education
It's amazing how much energy is spent on debating a football coach, and the amount of taxpayer dollars you are willing to spend to hire a football coach for a dozen games a year. But then you have no problem getting rid of teachers and educational programs because there isn't enough money in the budget. It's time you quit reliving your pathetic life through your children. The only way to succeed is education, and to take that away for a sport, on the taxpayer dime, is ridiculous.
I have an idea for the city of Shamokin to save a few bucks. How about having the city employees refrain from conducting their personal business (such as banking) during work hours, using city vehicles? And before anyone says, "What if they're on their lunch break?," I highly doubt that's the case at 9:30 in the morning. And if it is another kind of break, then use your own vehicle.
Buck, meet Jerry
From the crazy, conspiracy-soaked loony tune Sound Offs I've seen lately, I have to believe this area is where Jerry Springer meets Hee Haw.
The real violence
The biggest supporter of violence against children is the U.S. government. All three branches support the murder of innocent, unborn and partially born children. Abortion is a sin, a travesty and a shameful disgrace, and its continuance shows how far this country has degenerated since its founding.
This do-nothing Republican Congress that we have, the American people are fed up with them, and they will remember it in 2014.
Well, Mount Carmel, you showed your true colors again, questioning a girl for three hours. Police don't question criminals for three hours.
Priorities are messed up. Maybe Mount Carmel ought to be more concerned about the bullying that goes on in the school. Those kids get off with just a slap on the hand or maybe a day or two suspension. And it's not just Mount Carmel, it goes for the other schools.
I think suspending the 5-year-old girl who hasn't reached the age of reason yet, who doesn't even know what the words "bubble gun" mean, is ridiculous. Where are the teachers' and superintendent's brains?
Refusing to play
If Camelot takes over the Pennsylvania Lottery, I will no longer play the Lottery. People are going dirt poor spending their money on the Lottery when their money should be going other places.
To the person who continues to publish in Sound Off and is such an expert on the life of Barack Obama, please go to Google and write in Barack Obama, Muslim school, Indonesia. See what you get. Let us know. Frog's take: And remember, if it's on the Internet, it must be true!
