June 19 Bless Your Heart

BYH, if you missed the news this week, here is a recap: they put Manafort (former Trump campaign manager) in jail, Michael Cohen (Trump “fixer”) splits with his legal team, might flip on his old boss Trump, Trump salutes N. Korean general, New York attorney general sues Trump Foundation, might be some fraud there, and Trump effusively lies about his policy of separating undocumented immigrant mothers from their children, saying it's the Democrats' fault.
Hey, Trump! Jesus was a refugee! And when He grew up He said, "I was a stranger, and you welcomed me.” He sure wasn't talking to you, bud. BYH.
BYH to the person concerned about "Ripping children from their parents arms.” Where have you been for the last decade? Your president "O" was the worst offender.
I believe that excessive stormwater runoff will signal the end of times — or signal the defeat of those with their heads in the clouds. It has got to be one or the other. I still think global warming will get us before the stormwater gets here. Forrest Gump said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know which one is filled with stormwater runoff."
The police already have one hand tied behind their back. A police civilian review board will tie the other hand. But it does sound good when you are trying to get some votes from certain groups. Let us make it tougher on criminals rather than easier.
BYH to the citizens of Pitt County and Greenville for spending the money and time fixing your vehicles because of the worst roads in the state. The rest of us out here with great roads applaud you!
Shame on the county commissioners for failing to follow through on their promise to the Health Department to build a better, healthier environment, but now refusing to do so with sidewalks connecting to a county school on Allen Road. Thank goodness the City of Greenville cares enough for the safety and health of our children to work with DOT to build the sidewalks. County Commissioners talk a good game, but the truth is in their votes and shown by their waistlines, BYH.
BYH to the person complaining about “thousands” of cigarette butts on the ground. This is what you get when a bunch of butt-inskis (see what I did there?) make it so an adult can't have a cigarette with a drink in a bar! Cigarette butts were disposed of properly back during the Sane Era. Now we have to smoke outside and you still moan and groan. You butt-inskis really need to light up and I ain't talking about a Marlboro.
A BYH to the grammar-challenged staff at The DR. Friday's front page indicated that cigarette butts "lay" on the sidewalk at ECU. Of course, they "lie" on the sidewalk. Where were these folks in the seventh grade when the rest of us learned proper grammar?
