Our country is headed down a path we may not recover from. We are no better than those who promote the hatred if we blindly follow along.

If you are voting for Trump because he is a Republican, he’s not. He has changed parties five times since 1987. He has no loyalty to any party or anyone but himself. Read more

Some months ago, I wrote a letter to this paper shortly after returning from my winter stay in Athens, Greece.

If there ever was a time for people to get out and vote, it is this upcoming 2020 election. Best to take a long hard look at each candidate to see what their platform represents. The line is very clear between the Republican and Democratic parties. Read more

I’m sorry that President Trump got Covid-19 and hope he recovers quickly, but I’m also mad at him for being so irresponsible – for minimizing the risks of the virus that has caused the death of over 214,000 Americans, for putting so many of his supporters, secret service agents, and associat… Read more

When God is taken out, we see him replaced with the devil in disguise. We have the vengeance, the primitive behavior and lack of humanity.

Foremost among these is that in the midst of a deadly pandemic, incumbent Patrick Morrisey is suing to dismantle the law that provides health care despite pre-existing conditions to half a million citizens of our state… Read more

They call me the Mothman. Proud West Virginians built me a statue and raised me up to the stars. Strange beings, these humans. Somewhere back in time we had a common ancestor. If there’s a god he must be laughing. They call me adorable. Little do they know. Read more

The Massa Complex, based on Blacks’ psychopolitical needs, is best exemplified by Joe Biden. Usually such white men are seen as sympathetic figures (a residue of white paternalism internalized by Blacks), having bestowed some “benefit” on Blacks or having displayed other than hostile interes… Read more

I was very disappointed to read in this morning’s Register-Herald that Doug Epling has spoken out against a solar farm in Raleigh County. Mr. Epling, who I hear is a fine fellow, seems to be part of the “coal only” group that continues to have its heads stuck deeply in the sand. Read more
