Opinion: Just think about Ted Cruz for a minute

Of course nobody questions McCain or Romney. Their parents are both American citizens. Duh!

Affordable Care Act nears major milestone; Brownback still opposed

If we got rid of health insurance, then health costs would come crashing down. Providers can get away with outlandish costs because "insurance will pay for it". If individuals had to pay full cost out of their own pocket, full costs would have to drop.

Instead, we pay our insurance companies to be a "middle man". Obama Care will make the government the "middle man". That is fine if you trust the government...

Opinion: Has Obama been shamed into war?

Good thought. Unfortunately, there are too many people who base their support for war based on who happens to be POTUS.

Opinion: Has Obama been shamed into war?

Yes, but what was your opinion of us going into Iraq? It is well known that the WMDs in Iraq went into Syria by overland truck.

If WMDs are the only reason for going in, then you can argue that action in both countries is justified.

If WMDs are no real threat, than you can argue that neither is justified.

Unfortunately, I don't see any "good" side in Syria.

No, they are forcing the hippie out of people. Hillbillies use rocking chairs.

City to consider banning couches on porches

But...but...but...living in a free society is dangerous...next thing you know, those darned libertarians will want access to banned books, tequila with the worm, pure vanilla, non low-flush toilets, etc. My, my, we just can't have such dangers in the neighborhood...I just wish we could ban water. You can drown in that stuff.

City to consider banning couches on porches

If you miss having a couch on your porch, you can by a vacation home in Morgantown and put a couch on the porch. Just make sure that your couch is in a safe location after a Mountaineer win.

Aside from that, in Morgantown you can admire the beautiful scenery. It is very pretty there at all times of the year. Maybe the commissioners in our fair city do not appreciate sitting on the porch on a fine fall day.

Editorial: Key interchange

Two main roads come within about six inches of intersecting each other at this location. It makes perfectly good sense to connect them.
