Nov. 16 Bless Your Heart

BYH, live in the moment, it is a gift. That's why they call it the present.

BYH to our search for extraterrestrials. Carl Sagan said “Either we are alone here in the Cosmos, or we are not alone. Either way, it boggles the mind” and “The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.” A NASA astronaut said “In my official capacity I cannot comment on extraterrestrial contact. However, personally I can assure you, we are not alone.”

BYH to all the people who run the red light at the entrance to Brook Valley. You are going to kill someone, possibly yourself. Police could give tickets here all day long. Please slow down before a tragedy happens.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be a great human being but is terrible at her job. Her job is to make sure the Constitution is being followed not to make it up as we go along based on what she thinks is politically correct. As for president, Dems going with the "youth movement," huh? Please run her.

Read in paper where water treatment expansion will cause rate increases. Duh! Why don't we drop the multi-million dollar move from a facility that has worked since inception [except once] and put that waste toward improvement? Now here's a novel idea: sell it to Duke Power and add that to to the astronomical savings we are already experiencing! Everybody happy!

The congregants of the Pitt County Council on Aging are very grateful for the invitation to have brunch at Coastal Fog Nov. 1. We thank the owners, Kate and Julie, for the outing. Thank you. We bless you. God bless you.

Hey, you libertarians and lovers of the Constitution who also voted for Trump, here is another reason you should regret your vote. Our esteemed garden gnome and attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has decided to take a hard line in prosecuting pot smokers: “Put them in a cage if they smoke a flower.” Thanks a lot. Bless your heart.

Curses, Trump is on the verge of slashing back national monuments, and giant sequoia could be reduced from 328,000 to just 90,000. Timber companies are revving up their chainsaws and think this administration is the best thing that ever happened to them, but he is the worst thing that ever happened to this country, and every vote for him is culpable.

BYH to the Hollywood liberals, who use every opportunity to use their platform to criticize Trump yet remain completely silent as their heroes are being exposed. No headlines, no interviews, and yet they are so quick to crucify Trump on every awards show. Can't wait for the Oscars and Grammy presentations and predict there will be no mention of the victims or the predators.

BYH, Alabama Republicans. Go ahead and elect Roy Moore, you will stink of his taint until election day, and create a blue wave. Let the majority truly rule.
