GM should have to live up to promises made to northeast Ohio. They received tax breaks, then broke the labor agreement taking salaries and payroll revenue from taxpayers. This area has supported the company through growing transportation and contracting companies to help them. GM needs to pay up money it owes. It’s despicable how the company has treated an area that has supported it through everything.
Voting is both a responsibility and privilege. Too many people abuse the privilege. They don’t bother to research candidates’ policies. They vote based on whether candidates have “D” or “R” after their names. In this presidential election, there is a huge difference between the platforms released by the Democrats and Republicans. Don’t vote based on television ads or candidate personalities. Read the platforms!
Here are some suggestions to eliminate chaos from future presidential debates: When the moderator asks a question of a debater, turn off the microphone of the other. Only the one answering should be on camera. If two minutes are permitted to answer, place a timer on the TV screen. Turn off the debater’s microphone when time expires. If the respondent does not answer the question, give a warning. Then, turn off the microphone on subsequent violations.
I wear a face mask when I go out in public not only to protect myself and others, but also as my patriotic duty. I love this country and want us to get past this pandemic as soon as possible. Not wearing a mask is selfish and political. In my eyes it’s being un-American!
We have all seen cute videos of young children mimicking their parents’ response to sporting events. They want to be just like their parents, including wearing team jerseys and speaking like them. What will your children or grandchildren take away from observing your reaction to the candidates and upcoming election? Do they hear and see you overlooking lies, cheating and nasty remarks with a wink and nod? Remember, the children are watching!

I am retired and have proudly paid taxes ever since my first job at age 15. I am happy to have supported money for roads, schools, airports, policemen, politicians, stoplights, teachers, public buildings, colleges, government buildings, welfare, aid to farmers, etc. But I can’t accept it when my taxes go into the pockets of billionaires like the president who pay little to zero taxes by using high-priced accountants.
On the stage in Cleveland on Tuesday, a patient father tried to reason with a tantrum-throwing tweener. Instead of waiting for the moderator’s timeout to have some effect on the stream of constant, shrill and impotent complaints from the mouthy kid, dad should have taken him to the wood shed sooner than he did. Voters should lend dad a hand, come November.
Joe Biden supporters overlook his mediocre record in every office held for 46 years and how he enriched his family and friends through leveraging his political power. Biden plans to increase business regulations, individual and corporate taxes — the very drivers of our strong pre-COVID economy. We are energy independent; no more wars for oil. Biden’s presidency will change that. Trump challenges the political class, national media and elites, and that has earned my vote.
Be perfectly honest with yourself and answer two questions before voting: (1)Would you hire Donald Trump to work with you, for you or to run your company? (2) If the scientists / experts say it’s too early to take the COVID-19 vaccine, yet Trump overrules them, would you take the vaccine?
