C’mon, Sharpsburg: Even the smallest towns have events for residents as described in a recent Times-Herald article ... but not Sharpsburg.

Think about it: "Would you rather live 100 years in the past or 100 years in the future?" Sadly, I wonder how many respondents even know that the First World War began in 1914.

Too right-wing: I was totally surprised to see the guest editorial in your newspaper Sunday by self-hating hypocritical Starr Parker. This is the kind of extreme right-wing rhetoric one would see in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Times or the Daily Oklahoman, not in your local newspaper. Truthfully, this clown posse leader always sounds as if she is high on something.

Wrong policy: The same left-wingers who support job-killing government programs also want to inflate the minimum wage at a time when the unemployment rate for young people, especially blacks, is at unprecedented levels. Do you like keeping people unemployed so you can exploit them?

Selling records: "Only the Federal Government would attempt to sell what you can get for free, make no money, then subsidize the failure," Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla., speaking of the Commerce Department’s NTIS that sells records to the public. Records most can find online by Googling.

There was proof: You have to be a complete fool to not have seen the sarin gas that was found in Iraq. Even the Obama re-election networks showed it. Also satellite video of convoys of truck moving to Syria. But you being a Obama supporter just can’t see the facts.

Left Wingers: “Poor people have been voting for the liberal democrats for 50 years and are still poor.” Charles Barkley
