It’s called irony: John Winters dished up a good helping of irony recently. The letter writer is wrong. Winters was not pointing out bias in Newnan, but asking, “Could that happen here? Could people be discriminated against religious grounds?” And he showed how easily a law like that could be turned against anyone, even you and me. Hopefully, Georgians are beyond that.

Big stretch: How does the writer get from e-cigarettes to illegal aliens and welfare cheats? Where’s the logic in that? Bid for trash: I find it a travesty that Newnan residents are required to use a designated trash service who in turn provide shoddy service. Competition would be a good thing.

Don’t get it: I am in pure disbelief when I see someone I went to school with keep making the arrest log for driving on a suspended license and continuously posting pics on his Facebook behind the wheel of his car or motorcycle, sometimes with a beer in hand.

Shame: It is a shame that we have wounded veterans that have lost arms and legs because our government chose to fight somebody else's war, and now they don't have the kind of care they deserve. I believe our government should give these men and women anything they need.

No respect: Vice President Dan Quayle misspelled "potato" and it ruined his career. Let's see — President Obama misspells "respect" for Aretha Franklin, and CNN and MSNBC bow down and kiss his feet for it. America is doomed, folks. With this love-fest for all of Obama's failures, we are doomed.

Second class: Public schools remind me of the Titanic. They have second-class citizens (TAs) titled "paraprofessionals” placed on the bottom of the ship with no lifeboats, no raises, and no step raises.

Won’t work: People who advocate for raising the minimum wage seem so compassionate — they really care so much for those less fortunate. At least that is what they are desperate for everyone to think. The unintended economic consequences of your moral validation will hurt those very people you claim to want to help.

Internal destruction: Obama is raping our military with his budget cuts. While our enemies build up, he is drawing ours down. In the next war, we'll be bringing a knife to a gunfight.
