We'd like to thank the person who paid for our meal on Tuesday around 10:30 a.m. at the International House of Pancakes Restaurant in D'Iberville. We have never received such kindness as you have done. We are sincerely grateful for what you did. We have spent many years on this Earth and have blessed many people with our time, money and energy. We know our rewards are in Heaven. We never expected to receive such a blessing on Earth. May God bless you for your kindness, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Turnabout is fair play
In the same spirit of cooperation received from the right, we on the left stand ready to sabotage and explode everything the right wants to do. Everything!
Never miss a local story.
Drinking the Kool-Aid
I figured out a long time ago that actions speak louder than words. Republicans have been in charge here for a very long time, and they talk a big game. But look at the hot mess this state is in. So I will drink my Kool-Aid, because I live here it is the only thing that I can afford to buy.
Which is it?
As a small business owner in a local arts community that depends on walk-in traffic and is the sole employee of the shop, you decide which category each person fits in. One comes in so sick they can hardly walk, sneezing and coughing all over me. The other parks in the front door, in front of a sign that says, "Do not block drive," and goes somewhere else for hours and hours. Stupid or rude?
We were young, too
The madam and me are almost 70 years of age. We were once children who loved to pop firecrackers and shoot off bottle rockets, so come New Year's and the Fourth of July, you'll not hear us complain about the young'uns having a bit of fun. After all, it's only twice a year and, besides that, we're pretty sure that anyone who complains probably shot off fireworks when they too were youngsters. So may we encourage those folks to do what we do? We simply think back to those days and all the fun we had and that gets us through, for such fond memories are like stored up treasures.
It's OK to get angry. The governor of South Carolina said that Trump has one of the "angriest voices" in this election. I agree with her, and we as American citizens should be just as angry as Trump. Look at the condition of our once great country. We are broke, badly bruised and have the respect of no one. We can be great again and be a world leader but someone has to get angry and change the direction. Seven years ago we were promised hope and change. Obama did not lie, we got plenty of change and lost all hope. Stand up, get angry and change the face of Washington politics forever.
