Politics, winter predictions, more

A selection of reader comments from our Facebook page last week:

On a story about political ads on television, and whether there are so many they are counter productive:

• It’s disgusting that there are so many people out of work and struggling to survive yet these politicians can spend hundreds of millions on a campaign — Samuel B.

• I mentally tune them out — Don Z.

• We can’t rely on the ads to make our choice, we have to research! I have seen ads back-to-back of candidates accusing each other of the same thing! They attack their opponent rather than promote themselves — Dave H.

On another story about political ads blitzing viewers and risking voter turnoff, and whether you are tired of the ads:

• Just tired of Obama and his lies — Drew F.

• Some of those ads are funny — Dave H.

• After hammering home his staunch conservative views during the Republican primaries Mitt Romney is suddenly moderate, shifting his position more and more to the left. He was either lying then, or he’s lying now. Regardless, he’s compromising his beliefs to woo voters — Jamie L.

• I agree with Jamie — Alice A.

• Too much mudslinging now to know who is lying and who is telling the truth — Minnie W.

On a story about what meteorologists are predicting for winter:

• I learned absolutely nothing from that article. It might be cold, it might not. Well, duh — Laura C.

• The predictions I’ve seen are for a very snowy winter on the east coast, including West Virginia — Becky C.

• I’ve seen woolly worms with black on each end and brown in the middle, but yesterday I saw a brown one with a black head. Not sure what it means — Jamie L.

• It means the woolly worms are as confused as the meteorologists, lol — Michelle L.
