Aug. 20 Bless Your Heart

BYH working people. I work, vote and pay my taxes. I guess that makes me a racist.
BYH to our city leaders who are considering a petition to remove statues but then want to raise a memorial to a church. Are the tables turned.
City leaders are off the hook on this one as the city has no jurisdiction over the county courthouse. At one time, the county board of commissioners could have considered a petition, but the state Legislature passed a law that says they can’t.
Bless your heart to the society that allows wanton destruction of public property. I am not a fan of Civil War monuments, but I am disturbed that a gang of young hoodlums can tear down public property. Does this give people the right to tear down MLK statues because they disagreed with what he accomplished? To destroy Vietnam War memorials because they disagreed with the war? These things all happened in the past. They are part of history which cannot be changed.
Bless our heart, 75 years later it looks like we must battle Nazis again, this time home grown and on home soil. Time to choose sides. We will get no help from the president. Choose wisely.
Bless your heart to all the people on the left and right who do not realize the national media (print or television) runs the Democratic party. I use to think the Democratic party owned the press, but it is the other way around. Once you understand that, then it is much easier to connect the dots as to why the national news media is so one-sided against President Trump. My guess is that the media would be doing the same thing to Jesus Christ if he were a Republican.
An early 20th century philosopher said "When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." What is the true goal of those who wish to erase our history?
BYH ECU instead of cleaning up the contaminated soil from the old dry cleaners, you're using our tax dollars to just build a smaller science building and parking deck on it. So when people working and taking classes in this building get sick from all of the hazardous chemicals you left underneath, do you expect us, the tax payers, to pay even more for their removal then?
BYH downtown Greenville, with yet another parking deck approved by P&Z. With more and more cheap or free parking, are we not just encouraging even more congestion and traffic problems? The roads are wide enough, established neighborhoods are divided enough, there is enough heat, noise, air, water and light pollution, We need fewer cars in our downtown area not more.
