All schools in America could be helped by NRA To the editor: There is a lot of misinformation and fear about putting our children under guard in our schools and that it's like putting our children in prison, etc. The media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for laws and fill the national news debate with misinformation and dishonest thinking that only delays meaningful action. The liberal media call semi-automatic firearms “machine guns” and claim these civilian semi-automatic firearms are used by the military, and they tell us that the .223 round is one of the most powerful rifle calibers.

“A letter to the editor, Vicky Smith, about the story about bullying in school, boy, she really hit the nail on the head. If an adult is abused, then the person can get arrested. But children are allowed to be bullied, poked, hit, tripped, have their hair pulled, have all kinds of physical damage, plus emotional, verbal abuse, and it's just called bullying. I think that the children have the same rights as adults, and if they are touched or abused in any way by another child, there should be arrests, consequences, not just a verbal.” - Hagerstown “To the Hagerstown Rip Van Winkle who said since President Obama took office, gasoline has come down and the housing market has stabilized: The day President Obama took office, gas was $1.79 per gallon.

Someone who studies the press ought to do a comparison between “liberal bias” of the left-wing media and “fiberal bias” of the right-wing media, which breaks the law to obtain facts, or if the facts are inconvenient, makes up their own. In other words, is one form of journalism any better or worse than the other? My working theory is that it's kind of a wash, that the two cancel each other out. Reporters on the left might have slanted the facts to their favor, while reporters on the right might not have started out with any facts to begin with.

I’m getting sick and tired of these liberals like Leonard Pitts telling us Tea Party types that we don’t know anything about history. In the first place, many of these historical references of ours that he ridicules are the product of “gotcha” journalism, in which reporters catch us off guard by asking questions like, “What does Paul Revere’s ride mean to you?” Well, of course, if they’re going to back us into a corner like that, we can hardly be responsible for what appears to be an occasional gaffe, at least until we have time to change the Wikipedia entry.

"I'm calling about the article that was in the paper from Boonsboro, about the person who said the Democratic Party has an agenda that they believe is good for the majority of all people. Laugh out loud. " - Williamsport "I would really like your feedback on this. I know someone who attended and was very involved in a church. They had a disagreement with one of the pastors that was not church-related. All of the people that I thought were her best friends - and not just good friends, but best friends - will not talk to her or have anything to do with her because they said that they couldn't be best friends because she questioned their leader.
