I hope everyone is reading Robert Kennedy Jr.’s new book, “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health.” Very very shocking. There are two interview videos out if you don’t want to buy the book. It will never be on the news.
The Mercury is providing some outstanding coverage of local sports and spotlighting exceptional young men and women at our local schools. These athletes are excellent role models for younger children to emulate. I applaud The Mercury for taking the time and space to highlight the good kids.
I’d like to give a shout-out to the public that the Pottstown Elks Doe Club at 61 High St. is having its annual cookie and soup sale on Saturday, Dec. 11, from 9 am to 12 noon. Masks are required. Thank you.
Sue Nace, Doe Club President
America has over 300,000 deaths every year from cancer. And yet, we have never shut down the country because of cancer. Think about it.
The reason oil from the strategic reserves is going to China and India is that the oil is “sour crude” with extremely high sulfur content. Currently, US refiners are not set up to refine “sour crude.” To retool would be expensive and not worth the cost for 2.5 days supply of crude. The price of fuel is not a reason for tapping into the strategic reserves! Biden has no way out of the crisis Biden created!
Not impressed at all by Mercury’s Dec. 5 headline or article. “Buying A Senate Seat” never stopped or impeded Hillary in NY or Mitt Romney in Mass.! So, why so shocking for Dr. Oz? Oz is a breath of fresh air & adrenaline for Pa. Republicans! Oz sounds like just what we need: New blood with name recognition; Sound logic explaining his take on MAGA; can’t be bought; & not one of old pols network! Go Oz!
Phase 1 of Biden’s energy policy was to shut down pipelines, block drilling in ANWR, suspend the issuance of new oil and gas leases, and install regulatory officials who are hostile to the industry. After gasoline prices exploded and his poll numbers tanked, Biden moved to Phase 2 where he begs Russia and OPEC for more production, and he raids the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Every one of his actions weakens the country!
Otis, are you the town drunk from Mayberry?
Dr. King said people should be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Who can argue with that? Biden chose his running-mate solely by the color of her skin, certainly not the content of her character, management skills, long Congressional service (4 years), proven executive ability (N/A) – summarily eliminating any male or person of other race better qualified. To be picked like that isn’t it somewhat degrading?
Jim Fitch, you meant Dollar Tree is raising prices in a recent comment. They sell the items for a dollar — not Dollar General. They sell stuff for more than a dollar all the time
It’s great to have First Lady Dr. Jill Biden in the White House. Remember the recording of former First Lady from her former chief of Staff? Melanie Trump: “I’m working … my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a f#%* about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?” Is this the “war on Christmas” the radical Republicans on Fox News talk about?
Butt-hurt Never Trumper Dems are the epitome of mindless lemmings. Look who they elected. Look at who they’re taking direction from. Look at the results after less than a year. Dems be tripp’n!
I’m male. I’ve looked deep inside, and can honestly say I don’t know how I’d feel if a woman I cared/didn’t care about wanted to abort my child. I do know, regardless of my feelings, it’s not my choice. It’s between her and her God, and no one else.
Responding to Greg T on Nov. 28 Sound Off: Thank You Ga. jury. That jury was given an opportunity to do the right thing. The judge was neutral, giving both sides a fair and equitable trial, allowing the jury to hear and see all the evidence so they could make an informed decision. The judge didn’t decide what outcome he wanted and then made it so, he wasn’t prejudicial, discriminatory and adversarial toward one side or the other. A fair trial.
Pro-choice advocates like columnist EJ Dionne demand all Americans have the unfettered right to kill babies based on convenience. In a contemptible demonstration of irrationality, he/she tries to equate “Pro-Choice” legislation to support the 2nd Amendment. Apparently the progressive’s mantra of … “if it saves just one life …” doesn’t apply to infanticide.
ANTIFA is not liberals or conservatives. They don’t have an agenda. They are what we used to call Anarchists. Opportunists use any chaotic situation to wreak havoc and destruction on society.
Just wondering where are Lou Dobbs and Rudy and some of these defense lawyers for Trump? Finally, people are going after them for false claims. That’s the only way you stop the lies is if you hold them accountable you won’t see this on Fox News but I’m glad we’re seeing it in the courts maybe Trump can use the tens of millions of dollars and political contributions to help his former buddies!

Wow, the leftists reacted to humor and howled exactly as predicted. That is the difference between leftists and liberals. Ad hominem attacks are the stock and trade of the left. But liberals at least try to act with character and hope. To the liberals (and, of course, the conservatives) out there, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
You got to respect a man who wears a man bun (a ball of hair on the head). A man bun is the male equivalent of a gal with green or pink hair. It says: I am good. I am for social justice I am progressive. I predict Troy Gaston, man bun extraordinaire, will be the Biden administration’s next pick for the Supreme Court.

Can you tell me why Sound Off contributors blame Biden for all the mistakes Donald made? Donald made a mess in the USA and the world. Fact, not fake news.
Fox News reports that the Biden administration has caused a shortage of Santas during this crucial holiday season. This results from the dozens of containers full of Santas on ships backed up at the Port of Long Beach. Maybe it’s time to buy American and stop importing our Santas from China, or maybe release a portion of the Strategic Santa Reserve.
Thank you Gov. Wolf for following through on your veto to reject the Republicans’ legislation to allow people to carry a firearm openly or concealed without a permit in Pennsylvania. Ludacris.
MendaciousD may not care if you make stuff up, but the rest of us do. J.Batdorf: Explain how you “know” Gigi Sohn is committed to censorship. R. Minninger: What false info in which Jan. 6 subpoena, who caught it, and how did you learn of it? M. Furlong: Explain how payroll tax credits kill a neutral press. Many of us are tired of flat statements without evidence. Show us how credible you really are.
Mrs. Lefty recently mentioned remembering when Sarah Palin was the craziest female in the room. Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Greene are putting up a good fight. Between Greene and Boebert, both Qanon conspiracy kooks, you have two people that make Palin look almost normal. Palin is still goofy but she’s laying low now.
Great to see all of the Christmas decorations in various neighborhoods. I am hoping that this holiday cheer will rub off on all of the negative comments by Ruth Mutter, Robert Minninger, Michael Stern and Jim Fitch. Peace and love to all of you, try and be positive, you’ll live longer.
So, you think you are smarter than the last generation? 70 years ago, the owner’s manual for your car gave instructions on how to adjust the valves in the engine. Today the manual warns you not to drink the contents of the battery! ‘Nuf said.
