Bless Your Heart

Bless Your Heart

Fear of COVID. Fear of food shortages. Fear of global warming. Fear of gas shortages. Seems like life today revolves around fear. My greatest fear is that my wife will finally throw me out. Of course, I doubt it will be while I am getting that extra $375 a week extra unemployment check. She even smiles when that check comes in. Love of money is the root of all evil except unemployment money.

BYH to those who say we are becoming "socialist" as if it's a dirty word. They seem not to fear the fascism of the Jan. 6 insurrection. Just look to socialist Scandinavia where the people are always rated as the happiest.

Since COVID, the doctor's office is void of magazines. Evidently, someone in the family thinks of themselves an artist because during my long, long wait I had to endure these "works of art." What's wrong with dogs playing poker? Or even blank walls might be better. Call out the Art Squad!

BYH, stand for what you think is right, even if you stand alone.

BYH Greenville for repaving Evans Street but forgetting again sidewalks and bike lanes and wheelchair curb ramps that remain needed. Have not enough people been hurt or killed yet on the roads for y'all to start building them safer for all users?

Bless our hearts, when referring to Republicans, the words shameless and shameful mean the same thing. They care about absolutely nothing except retaining their power at all costs.

BYH, to be a modern-day Republican must require a boatload of cognitive dissonance because to stand in the way of seeking accountability for a violent insurrection on our nation's Capitol during the peaceful transition of power risks looking like they stand with the insurrectionists. And indeed some elected Republicans do stand with those trying to prevent that transition.

BYH to George Washington, who is credited with the quote, "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master".

BYH of all the anti-vaxers and their silly conspiracy theories. If I have to choose a favorite it’s a toss-up between Bill Gates is trying to microchip you or it will make you go berserk and vote for a Democrat. We know the truth. You’re just a bunch of snowflakes afraid to get a shot.

And, isn't it a sin to starve a child and have more children knowing that they can't be cared for by the parent? Food for thought.

BYH to Uncle Joe and his fellow Democrats. It should be apparent to most people that they are attempting to destroy the country. The question is why?

BYH to the ladies on the U.S. women’s soccer team who disrespect our flag and country by taking a “knee” when our national anthem is played.

BYH, imagine being so ignorant of your own heritage you can't tell when you're being lied to.
