Jan. 11 Bless Your Heart


Friday, January 11, 2019

Bless my heart! I wake up every morning and read the BYH section to see if there are any good Brook Valley cut through ones, then check the obituaries to see if I’m there. If I’m not, I know I’m going to have a good day.

BYH to those who constantly stir trouble in Washington D.C. The Demos will not work with the president at all. They are like a bunch of wolves attacking him every day. Give the president a break. Try his ideas. If they work, fine, if not, change them. That is called working together for the common good for our country.

To the “Read your bible” person. Jericho's walls were destroyed on the seventh day of marching around them with the blasts of trumpets no less. We don't need a wall! Just better border security.

Bless the heart of the person who can explain to me how this Trump shutdown of the government is making America great again?

BYH to people riding into Greenville as parents bringing their teens to tour ECU. They must be appalled when they see the disrespect to our land and environment near North Pitt High School. You see acres of beautiful, well-maintained farm land then a wallow with trash, broken equipment, junk and sometimes farm animals living in these deplorable conditions.

BYH to ECU for building more and more, but still neglecting safe ways to walk or bike to and from campus. Your congestion is killing us — enough already!

BYH Greenville City Council for discussing the nightclub 500-feet rule in an afternoon workshop away from the public eye and inconvenient for us citizens. Are you trying to hide what you're doing for the frat house boys? Where is your transparency?

Bless your heart to the person who found my debit card and returned it to the bank. Good to know good people still exist. 

I don't even know what to say about that list of names of folks supporting Staton. The fact that a letter is needed is one thing, but, dang, what did they do? Pass a piece of paper around at Supper Club for everyone to sign? Or was it the Terpsichorean event? Or did he hit up all of the country club golf courses this weekend?

Bless your heart to the crybabies whho keep pushing for charter schools and “follow the student” money. Wouldn't it be better to hire some administrators with a spine that could just fix the existing broken public school system and save the taxpayer money?

Bless Your Heart to the City Council for approving 170 additional security cameras for the police to monitor everyone’s movement. Why must we live in a surveillance state?

Bless your hearts to the submitters who have worn out the use of “oligarch” and Brook Valley and to the peanut-brained individual at The Daily Reflector who continues to print them.
