Bless Your Heart

I think it was Joni who sang, "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot." Sounds like what is being considered for the Town Common. I guess it is the lack of restaurants and bars in downtown Greenville which necessitates rezoning the Town Common to commercial use. Progress means paving over the green grass and building something. Progress ignores the simple things in life. Progress is like marriage. Always different from what you thought.

Bless our hearts. Just thought of a novel idea. Stop the free checks and people will have to go back to work. Nearly every business in town is trying to hire. Duh!

Bless my heart! Is Greenville really that uninteresting or is the Daily Reflector really that bad?

BYH, there are two ways to get enough. One is to acquire more and more, and one is to desire less and less.

BTH. If the Republicans succeed at restricting voting rights and still lose elections, what will they do next? Folks, you better think about that one!

If we defund the police will we still need to have a driver’s license and car insurance? It would be lovely not to have to pay for car insurance. And waiting in line at the DMV is like waiting in line to get a root canal from a marginal, cash-strapped dentist with a tee time. It’s OK with me to keep stoplights even if we do not get a ticket for running them.

BYH, if you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up, it dies and ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.

BYH to Democrats who voted for Biden, face reality. You elected an individual who accomplished nothing in the Senate for 50 years and messed up the country in less than five months. He's lived off the taxpayers' money his whole career. If this is the best candidate or similar along with their left-wing sycophants you can put forth for future elections then the outlook appears dim for the U.S. as we slide to socialism.

A no BYH to the lady who was standing right on top of me in Bath and Body. You were not following the six-feet rule. I do not like people crowding me at the cash register. Please respect people’s space!

Bless your heart Daily Reflector, the pop-up ads online are annoying.

BYH, June 6 contributor lamenting the plight of conservative college students. You sound like you have never ever seen the inside of a college classroom, let alone taken the sociopolitical temperature of the place. You shouldn't opine on things you have no understanding of.

BYH, "Man only likes to count his troubles, he doesn't calculate his happiness." ~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

I am an old man who rides a bike without a helmet. Not too worried about a head injury because I’m pretty much out of my head already. The only people worried about me getting hurt are the ones who will have to take care of me and they ain’t going be much help anyway. Love feeling the breeze through my thinning hair and love the looks of disapproval from real bikers.

Stop complaining about the lack of help in restaurants and learn to cook! Save money and eat healthier. Learning to cook will free you from poor service, dirty hands and sloppy waitstaff. Say no to poor service and lousy food. Go to the grocery store and look for the buy-one-get-one-free deals. You will be glad you did.

BYH the biggest threat to USA is not illegal immigration but white supremacy. Yes, they stormed the Capitol and wanted to do harm which sadly they did. Rethink your thoughts and values. Don’t allow the destruction of our Democracy by these folks. Rethink your religion and support of Trumpsters.

Think about all the money wasted on these summertime weddings. Statistics say that half will end in divorce. So half of all the money spent on these expensive weddings is down the drain. Sitting in the congregation you can pretty much pick which weddings will end in divorce. If she cries during the wedding vows the marriage will pretty much last. If he cries during the wedding vows he is faking it and divorce approaches.

BYH American press, why so much coverage of the Royals. Has the press forgotten that Americans lost their lives to get our freedom from the Royals.
