Sound Off for April 27

Great deals!

I want to give a big thanks to all the stores who know how to give great deals without reward cards. Blessings that your company grows more with each passing day. Thanks again.

Faulty logic

So gun-control laws won't stop criminals from obtaining guns, but bathroom laws will stop predators from entering women's restrooms. Conservative logic at its finest.

A law?

Tragedy, another person is gone due to a reckless, lawless driver. Don't you people have vehicular manslaughter here?

Too fast?

So you were cruising through my residential area, and you just couldn't avoid the turtle that darted out in front of you. I hope it didn't damage your vehicle.


As I read all the negative comments in Monday's Sound Off toward the businesses that object to HB1523, I had to comment. One person said, "My religious rights." What about Jesus words? John 13:34-35 is when Jesus established a new commandment. "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." Love is more than a warm feeling. It's an attitude that reveals itself in action. If we absorb others hurts, without complaining or fighting back, your Christlike love will so shine. It's not "our" religious rights, but, Jesus commandments.

Left-lane lament

Folks, when you travel in the left lane on a four-lane highway you are subjecting yourself to a high risk of a head on collision with an addict who thinks he/she is on the right-hand lane of a two-way highway, thus facing you head on. The head-on collision will be like hitting a solid brick wall at twice the speed of each vehicle, thus if both are traveling at 50 mph it becomes a 100 mph collision. Personally, I stay out of the left lane unless I'm passing someone or getting ready for a left turn.


In Gene Taylor's 20-plus years, he took time to hold hundreds, if not thousands, of town hall type meetings, where he would face even his toughest opponents -- in open forums. In the few years that our present congressman has been in office, I bet you can count his open-forum town-hall meetings on one hand. Why wouldn't a public servant who has built his campaign war chest to well over a $1 million in his first two years, and who only "works" 142 days or less, if he attends all sessions, not have well-announced, scheduled, ongoing town-hall-type meetings during days/hours when folks can attend to discuss issues germane to their interests? He does work for us, doesn't he?
