To the ranter who has a granddaughter being bullied at a middle school: Now you know why we moved and transferred my boys out of Fort Wayne public schools! We complained to the principal every time it happened, and nothing was done.

Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana for recreational use is the first step in ending the heinous drug war juggernaut.

Northeast Indiana is very religious and very Republican. That means we are very suspicious of concepts like empathy, facts, science and common sense.

To those who are upset about the election and wish to secede from the union, please pay your part of the deficit before you go. We are keeping the flag you hold so dear, and we are keeping the military that you claim to support (they fight for our rights and what our flag stands for).

It's a disgrace for our national anthem to be used in advertising, let alone by a foreign automaker.

So white people of European descent shouldn't hold prejudiced views of others? All manner of race and religion have been persecuted throughout history and even today (Christians in the Middle East.) So the correct statement is no one should hold prejudiced views of others.

Another four years of fiscal and moral decline.

I wonder what Jesus thinks about the incarceration of nonviolent drug offenders?

Poor Black Friday employees. You don't want to go to work that early. Be there or be fired, the boss says. You can stop this. Join a union so you have a say in your workplace or continue to be cattle in a herd going nowhere.

City Council wants to fire the auditors. Doctors and cops are financial illiterates. If a controller (protector of assets) allows that to happen, she should resign.

Sure, Israel, we've got your back, but don't turn around to see if President Obama is there.

If there was a congressional white caucus, would it be considered racist by the media and the Democrats?

The new Highway 37 resurface job is a joke. There are as many or more bumps and holes as there were before the resurface, but we all have more paint chips and dings. … Our tax dollar at work.
