I am an emergency room nurse, and I take care of people who have the flu. I can tell you, the people who have the flu have not had the flu shot.

The married son who will not get a flu shot must be a union member who thinks the union will protect him and his family from everything.

Semi-automatic gun lovers must fantasize

about mowing down everyone and everything in sight. Defense? Protection? Nah, it’s all about the power trip.

I’ll bet there isn’t one of you pro-assault gun people who has the guts to go to Newtown, Conn., and present your Second Amendment views to the families of those kids who were butchered.

Guns were used to secure the blessing of liberty by farmers, who helped found this country. And our Constitution gives us the right to be able to fight to keep it from being taken away. I do not want to be left with just a slingshot to use up against a tank.

What will you do after an intruder shoots your Rottweiler?

Since Gov. Mike Pence says he is going to put family first, I wonder if that means he will repeal the right-to-work-for-less
law.

Gov. Mike Pence’s proposal for educational funding calls for increases “divided among schools with high performance”? Won’t that make the educational gap worse?

Oprah’s got to have her nose in everything. Now, she’s the steroid police.

Looks like these charter schools are not the end-all, be-all answer our politicians claimed them to be.
