Sound Off

Hypocrisy: According to Sen. Harry Reid, the Koch Brothers are “nasty Republican, anti-American hate-mongers.” I’m not sure what planet Harry Reid is on, but the Koch brothers are extraordinary philanthropists, recently contributing $12 million to the United Negro College Fund. God bless them.

How’d you know? I had no idea so many Cowetans spend their days in the White House, privy to all actions taken by the president, all White House meetings, all of Obama's phone calls and, therefore, know everything he has or hasn't done or said and are able to tell us all about it.

Complete opposites: “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country (John F. Kennedy).” “Ask not what you can do for your country, but ask what your country can do for you (Barack Hussein Obama).” John F. Kennedy was a statesman.

Mark my word: As this "carry" craze escalates, there are going to be more and more "good guy" against "good guy" shootings, bystander shootings, misunderstanding shootings, accidental shootings. The 2nd Amendment specifically mentions bearing arms as part of a militia, and at the time it was written, an "arm" was a single-shot, muzzle-loaded, flintlock weapon.

Support Israel: Do not be fooled by Obama’s “supportive rhetoric” for Israel. As a Christian, I know in my heart that we must stand by and protect Israel. Obama will do nothing to assist Israel in their greatest hour of need, and unfortunately, that could be rapidly approaching. Pray.

More than that: The Clean Air Act isn't just about power plants. It's also why our cars have catalytic converters.

Election adjective: Being one month shy of 75 years old, I have faithfully voted in many, many local, state and national elections. I can only describe the election between Perdue & Kingston with one word: slimy.

Check it out: The new movie "America" by Dinesh D'Osouza is a great documentary about our love for America versus leftist progressivism. Plain and simple. American patriots should be very proud of our country.Go and see it.

Thanks: A big thank-you to the honest person that turned in the video that was left in the shopping cart at BJ’S.

New business op: Looking to open a new business? Why not move to Chicago and open a funeral home? 

Fix ‘em: Would the city please repair the holes on Clark Street ? 

What’s happening? Do you not think it strange that a U.S. soldier would abandon his unit during combat deployment, stay with the enemy for five years and get released for five top Taliban commanders, then get a desk job and maybe collect $300,000 in back pay? There is something up the chain of command that is trying to destroy this country.

Finally: Thanks, Coweta County, for finally mowing the median on Highway 34. It was long overdue.

Read the Bible: Our Founding Fathers encouraged Bible reading. They would be shocked to see how the schools have kicked God out. Do your research instead of reading liberal blogs.
