Pond scum

I take vacations, buy myself expensive things. I go out to the bar sometimes. I work for the government. Guess that's makes me scum, too, since I am paid by taxpayer's dollars.


Why would the people in Texas elect a stupid blowhard like Mr. Cruz?

Clean sweep

This is for the parents in the Shamokin and Coal Township area that have teenage children. You need to teach you children how to hold a broom and use a broom.

Man on the edge

The man who is being fined $44,000 in Kulpmont, that kind of reminds me of what went on in the Poconos where the guy went nuts ended up shooting everybody. You push people to the edge. It is unbelievable.

Perfectly fit

I would just like to respond to "please define." What part of the English language don't you understand? A father is someone who sires a child. Single means without a mate. That means single father. What part don't you understand? People don't have to be married to raise children. There are plenty of people who raise children on their own and they do a perfectly good job. There are a lot of marriages out there that don't mean anything, so I think you should keep your opinions to yourself.

Mind your own

First, people are complaining about gay marriage, now we are complaining about single fathers. I think people should just mind their own business. Just because a couple signs a piece of paper and spits out a bunch of kids doesn't make them the ideal family. People cheat on each other, they beat their spouses, they beat their kids, they starve their kids and spend all their money on booze and other things. But they are married. Does that mean they are any better than somebody who is single or a loving gay couple that might raise a child in a stable household? Get your priorities straight.

Blurry picture

A black teenager, Treyvon Martin, was shot and killed and it makes the headlines in every paper in the country. A white jogger is shot in Oklahoma by two black teenagers and makes the sports page in The News-Item. What is wrong with this picture?


Call me crazy, but I am pretty sure the fact that I have a computer has nothing to do with the fact that I don't have a job.
