Mark Pommier commented on Civil war is on the horizon

Christianity in the United States is losing followers faster than all others, and Tom Rosc's letter is a prime example of why. Gloom and doom, fire and brimstone, and we're all useless sinners, ad nauseum. He writes, "We, as a nation, have enjoyed the tremendous blessings of God while a…

Clearly the county is in error here. Who is the individual in the email exchange that would then allow them to cite the statute? It certainly should not be Mr. Stauber because apparently the county's computer resources were used. That sort of taxpayer-owner equipment may be used for personal…

Mark Pommier commented on Stauber would be an asset in Washington

Pete Stauber's commercials initially told us how proud he is to stand next to Trump, but he pulled those for some reason. The letter writer claims to have seen Governor Dayton host a Governor's Deer Opener, but then wonders if Dayton used a 30.06 to hunt ducks. For a person so strongly in …

Mark Pommier commented on Plaque removal shocking

Carlin Hahn is 100% wrong about atheism. He called us morons, and the paper runs it. Yet I'm supposed to be respectful un my comment.

Atheists are all around you. Good chance that your dentist, doctor, and teacher is atheist. All it means is that we reject their religion. So they attac…

Mark Pommier commented on Plaque removal was right

If people insist on displaying the christian commandments, then surely they support displaying the 13 pillars of Islam.

Mark Pommier commented on Replacement instead of removal?

Mr. Weiher's letter disparages atheism, and then issues his "friendly challenge to atheists??? He is not friendly toward atheism. He was publicly reproached several years ago for distributing fake million dollar bills with bible verses and threats of hell for kids in the Hibbing parad…

Mark Pommier commented on Utility rates to increase July 1

The Boy Scouts are allowed to use a Hibbing Public Utilities trailer for their parade float. Apparently at no cost too. What if my organization now approaches the commission and asks to borrow a trailer for our parade float too? They'll need to cut costs to offset the purchase of a whole …

Mark Pommier commented on Trump’s budget betrays rural America

Very good commentary by Aaron Brown in this one! We should be trouble by this comment of his: "Other voters saw the progressive social changes of the past ten years and felt overwhelmed." Let's face it --- gay marriage became legal, and the only reason these people felt overwhelmed…

The assistant majority leader in the Senate in St. Paul apparently has enough time on his hands to submit letters to other senators' hometown newspapers that disparage his colleagues most unfairly. There is no chance that Senator Dave Tomassoni places a priority on illegal immigrants over h…

Mark Pommier commented on WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE ABOUT THE BIBLE?

First, Bob Dylan is a Nobel Laureate, and your screen name is not clever. Your profile picture is also recognizable locally. Do you see any religious radicalization in your judgment of this person? There are many others that also don't believe in the Christian claims. Science has firmly e…
