Why is it so hard to teach reading, and why don't school districts understand that without reading a child or an adult can really not function in our society. Drop the other classes until they can read and read very well. I fail to how any student can grasp any other subject if they can't read.

He looks and sounds like a buffon. I sure am not going to vote for a guy who gets hit in the groin by some kid and thinks that is going to sway my vote. I have been a republican for years, but the candidates the GOP are rolling out this year are embarrasing. I have yet to hear one new constructive idea out of any GOP candidate.

I have a unique idea on how to keep social security solvent. How about the government paying back the 2.7 trillion dollars it has borrowed from social security? Instead of continuing to rob senior citizens, pay back what the government owes.

We don't know who he is or what stands for, he refuses to say. All he does is run off at the mouth and criticize opponents. I don't think he is capable of intelligent thought. He also likes to use children in his ads who pretend they know what they are talking about. Did the kids get paid, where they even legal to be working?

Posted on 06/27/14 at 10:59 am in response to Finally, Mike McFadden offers details on his health-care views

The real problem with health care in this country is education. Most people can't read an insurance policy and understand it. Of the major things in life, banking, health insurance or insurance in general, home ownership, and so on none are taught in our schools. When it comes to healthcare most people don't have a clue what they are going to get or how much it is going to cost. All they have to do is understand the policy and then ask questions. I do it all the time and it has saved me...

There are a number of major religions that don't believe in God, Buddism, New Age, Indegent peoples religious beliefs, etc. How is she going rule on thetre behalf. Christians are getting arrogant with there beliefs.

I am disbled, and I can speak to the problems at Terminal 1 and terminal 2. If part of ones didability is walking you had better get there early, because no one and I mean no one is going to assist you. Security even takes ones cane away and makes you hobble around without it. There is no chair to sit down and take off your shoes. I have a metal implant, you would think that common sense would dictate that they should have some means of identifying it without hauling one all over the place...

I agree with Jim Lavoi. I was tail ended by had a minor back injury. The insurance company sent me to see this doctor in Richfield. When I got there the office was locked and nobody there. There was a note on the door to please wait for the doctor. He arrived and we went into this office that was made to look like a doctors office, except there was no phone, no nurses and no medical equipment. He did about a 5 minute exam on me, ask me a few questions and sent me on my way.

It doesn't make any difference to the average taxpayer what then minimum wage is, they are going to pay for it one way or the other. The current minimum wage is 12,792.00 per year. That would qualify almost anyone for some type of welfare assistance. If they raise it not as many would qualify, but prices might go up. Either way the taxpayers pay for it, either through some type of welfare or increase in prices.

The only thing he has on his web site is a place to donate money. Anybody who is stupid enough to donate to a pig and a poke should remember the saying, "a sucker comes along every minute". How does McFadden expect anyone to vote for him on the basis of I am not Franken. I have been a Republican for over 50 years and the fact the Franken did not embarrass MN is important because we still have Bachmann who has now decided to attack Jews. So I predict as predicted a couple of years ago after...
