Instead of the little crybabies running home to Mommy complaining about being bullied at school, why don’t they get their friends together and teach the bullies a lesson, as we did back in the good old days? This would be a good display of working together to solve a problem.


Regarding the Wisconsin news anchor story: Just because people are skinny doesn’t mean they are healthy.


Rep. Mike Pompeo suggests a person is a fool for building a business that stages its financial success off of government subsidies. I guess he has never met a farmer.


Corporate welfare costs our government more than social welfare. That excludes Social Security and Medicare that workers pay.


On the day President Obama was sworn in office, the gasoline price was about $1.85 per gallon. Apparently, that nebulous promise for “change” included a doubling of the price.


Anyone who voted for or will vote for Obama solely because of the color of his skin is a racist.


I would like for Vice President Joe Biden to be more “patriotic” by showing the U.S. taxpayers his income-tax returns for the last three years.


“Lack of reporting” (Oct. 3 Letters to the Editor) suggested The Eagle’s reporting had a favorable bias toward Obama. However, in my opinion, there’s an extreme favorable bias toward Mitt Romney with regard to what’s printed on the Opinion page. Funny how perspectives work.


Why are the Republicans so against fact checkers? Is it because they lie the most? They seem to believe that if they repeat the same lie over and over, everyone will eventually believe it.


WSU has a football team, but you have to go to the state of Washington to see a game.


You’re upset because you think polls are going to discourage people from voting? What do you think voter-ID laws are doing?


My 91-year-old mother-in-law has never had a driver’s license and barely even paid a bill, but she’s always had a photo ID. To say elderly voters can’t get a photo ID is so ridiculous I can’t believe we have to hear it.


If I had a dollar for every messed-up trust fund baby I have met in this town, I’d be a millionaire.


We’re American Airlines. Our planes arrive at their destinations on time. Our passengers and their seats may or may not.
