With the economy in the tank, gas prices plummeted from an all-time high of over $4 a gallon in August 2008 to less than $2 a gallon in December 2008.
All you have in the paper is about Lewistown fire companies. Don't you know there's other fire companies in other towns here in Mifflin County, and they're just as good as Lewistown?
I wish our school board would call for security and demand an 8 percent raise to the seniors, so we can keep our homes.
Well, it's only a matter of time, even California is getting sick of these illegals coming into this country, and they need to stop calling them migrants, they're illegal aliens. They need to stop coming into this country illegally.
It's totally unbelievable what's going on in these southern borders with the influx of these illegal immigrants, disease-ridden illegals that Obama doesn't have a faintest clue what to do with. We don't have an open border policy, we have closed borders. That's why we need to get a fence up, just having a line in the sand absolutely does no good.
People talking about professionals, like teachers, and getting compensated with retirement. They earned that because they spent $50,000 to $60,000 dollars to go to college. People who work in factories didn't have to do that, so they deserve that. That's part of their pay, as far as investing that's up to you to invest, that's up to your company. As far as 401(k)s, most companies are doing away with them. They have proven to be a downfall. You need to go to a private investor.
Time to get these borders closed. Time to quite letting these illegal aliens into this country and time to start finding companies that hire these illegals and fine them hefty, and if they don't pay their fines they lose their business license.
