I would like to agree with the caller that talked about Granville Township. They do need to cut the weeds along Route 103. And while they're at it, they can clean up the garbage. It's one of the dirtiest roads in Pennsylvania.
How much longer is the American people gonna stand idly by and watch this rote government take over America and destroy America? It's unbelieveable. Even mainstream media doesn't see it and it's slapping them right directly between the eyes and they turn their face. I don't get it.
At the federal, state and local levels of government, this country doesn't have Republicans and Democrats in charge. We have career politicians, only interested in lining their own pockets and pushing their own agendas while being drunk with power. It's not a Democrat or Republican problem it's moral defects in these elected men and women.
People, please don't put your animals in your cars with the windows down a little on these 80- and 90-degree days. It could give them a stroke or heart attack.
I'd like to see that when the borough of Lewistown trimmed the trees in the Bon-Ton parking lot, they clean up their mess. Tree branches and wood chips everywhere. It looks bad.
Crude oil is going to jump up 13 because of the unrest in Iraq and it's expected to go up even more later this week. When are our politicians going to realize our country may be the greenest around, but we aren't gonna own it anymore, China or somebody else is? We have to quit letting the Middle East control our economy. We have to drill our own oil or find other ways to make up the energy instead of depending on these Middle East countries.
I'm watching Sunday talk shows and all the people, military, politicians, talking heads all are worried that ISIS has control over there and it's going to be a training against the U.S. What should we do, what should we do? Well, here's a thought, control our borders! Then they can have their land over there. They can't get in if we control our borders. Let the military seal up this country and we will be safe. Gee, it's a no-brainer.
Gossiping about your neighbor does not make you popular. You lose because you accuse your neighbor of being nosy. Well, take a good look in the mirror. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. It all might come back on you.
