Pay your own
Make the most of your high school years and college will be free. Free for you means taxes for everyone else. I’ve paid my way. You pay yours.
Flag for you
To the person looking for a flag to fly because they’re ashamed to fly our state flag: How about flying the plain white flag of surrender, which is what you’ve done to your heritage.
Drain the swamp
Richard Bennett needs to go. We need to drain the good ol’ boy swamp. Three cheers for the supervisors who did the right thing.

Too big to lose?
I wonder if the Patriots are being treated like big business — too big to fail. Maybe the referees are subconsciously cheating for them so America’s team won’t disappoint.
Bring it on
Hope Shipley’s Do-Nuts comes back to Gulfport. There was one years ago and Shipleys was the only doughnut our parents would buy. Shipley’s for the doughnuts and Quality for the French bread.
No Super Bowl for me. I’ve been done with the NFL. Pretty ironic that two teams with patriotic themed team logos are in the big game. But the NFL players, coaches and owners continue to show disrespect for our country, flag and national anthem.
Wow! A “trouble urine” law. Always amazed at how far we’ve progressed as a self-governing society. How about a “trouble cold fries in the drive through” law? I need government French fry protection.
Make it easy
If you don’t like a product or company, no need for a huge media stink, nonprofit movement, or grand boycott. Just choose not to buy into their business. There are always alternatives. If there are enough of you, they’ll get the message. Simple as that. Actually, most everything in life works that way. Easy.
