I see Governor Corbett caved for the Defense of Marriage Act. Wonder what's next for our country?
To the person that called in about Pennsylvania going to hell because they legalized gay marriage. You must be pretty ignorant because gay marriage doesn't affect you in any way, so why should you talk like it affects you in any way?
Are people hearing that some troops will still be in Afghanistan 10 years after this year when everyone was supposed to be home? Why aren't people speaking out? Aren't they angry as we are with all that our troops have gone through for over a decade?
If anybody that lives on the 600 block of Whiskey Road knows who is burning garbage at night, would you pass the word to them how objectionable it is to their neighbors? Smelling burnt garbage in the middle of the night or late evening is anything but a thrill.
Would someone please do something about the planter boxes downtown? There is no color and no texture, just green bushes and Japanese maples that do not belong in them. Take all that out and plant it in the empty lot at Five Points. Put in flowers and ornamental grasses. Make it pop with color. It will look a lot nicer.
I was just hearing on the news about all the marijuana that they're finding and they're announcing it. And, really, cigarettes are as bad as heroin and that should be illegal in my opinion. And alcohol is deadly. Marijuana can't kill you but they're making such a fuss over marijuana. How about cigarettes and alcohol? In my opinion, I think that's even worse.
It's simply astonishing when the American President of the United States treats illegal aliens better than he does veterans of his own country. Terrible. Why this guy has a job in office running this country is beyond me. People are so blind in this country.
