Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran said President Barack Obama's policies haven't done enough to help Mississippi. What have the leaders of Mississippi done to help Mississippi? Why are we last on anything good, and first on anything bad? These are not President Obama's policies that are failing us. It's the leaders of Mississippi.
Oysters will get polluted
The state Department of Marine of Resources wants to pay commercial fishermen to move oysters from clean reefs into the polluted Back Bay. Oysters in Back Bay are inedible so they will have to be left there or moved again to clean water before harvest. Gotta be nice to be fisherman in Mississippi. We don't use taxpayer money to create jobs for other out-of-work people such as construction workers, store clerks, taxi drivers, plumbers, carpenters, etc.
Not about the presidents
Over the past seven years, the changes in gasoline's price have little or nothing to do with the actions of President Obama or any president. The change results from supply and demand, not government policy. The supply comes from OPEC and from oil production on U.S. private lands, unaffected by U.S. government control. OPEC has continued to produce, so low oil prices would make U.S. oil production much less profitable. OPEC wants to slow down U.S. oil production, or stop it altogether.
Not common sense
Don't waste money on temporary paving in East Biloxi. Not good common sense. Close streets by section, just like the rest of us have had to deal with in the past. The mayor and City Council should have looked at all possible problems before having a project started. Don't let extra funds burn holes in your pockets. We must keep some for rainy days. Let's be penny-wise.
A day brightener
To the person who left the 75-cent coupon for the Sharpie markers at the Biloxi Wal-Mart -- I found it and was delighted. I am disabled and on a fixed income and need all the help I can get. Thank you for your true random act of kindness.
Not the intended use
Can gambling revenues be used to offset an increase in the water and garbage fees? It wasn't one of the selling points for supporting casino gambling that gaming revenue would avoid a need to increase in taxes and fees.
The right is a big defender of the Constitution, unless it's a clause they don't like.
