They're out to get us, but "we let them get away with it"-- Myer mails in another column

Saturday's Michael Myer column, "We Let Them Get Away With It," is ostensibly about Senator Capito's bill to limit the EPA actions on coal but it's just another predictable attack on liberals with the usual suspects and the same lack of developed arguments.

The column's targets include the president and . . .

Myer on the Iran agreement

Agreeing with Huckabee without mentioning his name

This morning's Michael Myer's column is about how the recent nuclear weapons pact is "Sending Wrong Message to Iran" and half of the column follows the frequently-used conservative argument that the Iran deal is just like the 1938 Munich agreement. Here's Myer:

The Wheeling "newspapers" cover Charleston

Updated July 6

One of the simple pleasures that I enjoy when I'm away from home is reading a variety of newspapers. Having been away from Wheeling for most of the week starting June 21, I saw a number of different perspectives on what was happening.

Myer begins coverage of Benjamin's re-election campaign

Benjamin probably won't get $3 million from Blankenship this time

The 2nd half of today's Mike Myer column marks the opening salvo in the Intelligencer's attempt to get State Supreme Court Justice Brent Benjamin re-elected.

Myer, without going into very many specifics, defends Benjamin from conservative criticism of a decision in which he was a part of a court majority that allowed drug addicts . . .

Words from our local keyboard commando: it's time for America's sons and daughters to fight and die in yet another war

Back in the run-up to our invasion of Iraq in 2002 and 2003 some columnists and writers never missed a chance to urge the United States to attack Iraq. Saddam, they told us, had weapons of mass destruction -- chemical and nuclear weapons, and he, somehow or another, was connected to September 11, 2001. The voices who challenged them were . . .

The Saturday Myer column

Column uses only seven of the ten Republican words -- "under" wins

That didn't take long (please see previous post). Mike Myer weighed in this morning with "Four States Hold Key on Coal." While the column was more about strategy ("here's what we should do about this" -- I like the assumption that . . .

Making Sense?

Michael Myer on energy

Myer criticizes U.S. energy policy for not making sense

The Michael Myer column,"U.S. Energy Policy Makes No Sense," begins by taking us back 40 years:

More than one-fourth of the oil we use in this country comes from other nations. We import nearly twice as much as we did in 1973-74, when the Arab oil embargo . . .
