I don't know Dwight Newbold but I think he was looking for a more serious response than the one above.
I've been concerned about several lead stories in the three or four most recent issues of the Courier.
Apparently there is an issue involving a black county commissioner who made a slanderous racial comment when he was trying to make an arrest without the authority to do so.
All I know is what I read in the paper and what is submitted on this blog site.
This is an opportunity for those of us who contribute to this blog site to delve into an underlying issue of concern to most of us who live here.
Lets all attempt to engage in a discussion of this subject in an honest and adult manner.
"All I know is what I read in the paper and what is submitted on this blog site." Sayeth TOT.
With such low intellectual horizons TOT, it is of no astonishment to me that your statement above caomes as no surprise.
Is the word buffoon in your vocabulary?
My comment was meant in jest. The last thing we need here is racial divide. Though I have very strong feelings about the quality of our elected representatives, I nevertheless am very disappointed in some of them. Particulary as it relates to our tax dollars. We live in a county that is rampant with voter apathy. NOTHING we say or do here, TOT, is going to change that fact. Therefore: HOW BOUT THEM DAWGS!!!!
"NOTHING we say or do here, is going to change that fact."
If we would be more responsible and more courteous in our responses to one another then what we say and do here might just have an effect.
No thank you sir, I'm not going to surender my belief in this great country.
You are the liberal.
I'm proud to oppose your position.
Let's move forward in an adult manner.
Happy New Year.
Yep, Sebe. It's gonna come down on who will stay and who will go, coupled with a good recruiting year.
The Coastal Courier blog site will eventually also come down to who will stay and who will go.
This particular blog is in need of serious discussion by all who live in this community.
The new year has begun and this subject gives us all left and right an opportunity to comment and suggest ways of improving our community.
If there is in fact a racial division lets all work together to bridge that divide.
Dearest TOT: The most racially division here occurs on SUNDAY. You nor anyone on this blog site is gonna solve that on these pages.
So, Tot, go ahead and 'bridge that divide' on this here blog site. Charge the windmill with your lance.
You take yourself way too seriously TOT. You are not a leader and you post inane blogs that divide rather than bring people together. You paint those that do not ascribe to your points within a broad painting negative brush. You encourage gridlock by so doing.
Have you looked up buffoon yet?
"So, Tot go ahead and "bridge the divide" on this here blog site. Charge the windmill with your lance."
I am not a Don Quixote as you often appear to be.
I like yourself am originally from these parts and I love this place very much (in spite of what the place has become).
If higher education produces the likes of yourself then I'm glad that I wasn't destined to become molded such as you have been.
The outgoing President of the NAACP posted a serious blog about a very serious concern of many in our community.
From the front page stories of last weeks paper copies of the Coastal Courier it appears to me that there might be a need for concern.
I hereby propose that all who visit this site consider this particular blog without dragging baggage from other blogstrings into this one.
Lets have open honest debate without regard to our different points of view.
No Tot: you did not seek higher education. That is obvious to all.
You stayed home and ate the peeling lead paint in your bedroom.
Since when do you need a swearing 'ceremony' with massed choir and reception(hope we didn't pay for that). How about catch the probate judge for five minutes and get it over with. Save the hoopla for when you reduce taxes.
JimmyMack I really don't care what a buffoon such as yourself thinks of me.
Did you stay home and torment frogs with firecrackers and torture defenseless little animals?
HuDhat1 our elected officials think they are somehow deserving of grandiose ceremony.
You can bet you did pay for the grand ceremony which was not called for.
Those taking part in the morning ceremony did not cost the taxpayers unnecessarily.
The evening ceremony could have been done the same way. During the workday.
Gee Tot, I see you finally have learned to use buffoon in a sentence. You can thank me later for expanding your knowledge.
No I did not stay home and torture frogs and small animals. I did however, go to GSU and Georgia and pulled several pranks. One of my better ones included capturing then turning loose 7 chickens to run around in another dorm.
You ever tried to hem up a disgruntled chicken? Plus...I never got caught.
Then there was that fire. The statute of limitations has now expired so I can now talk about it. No one got hurt. Just created mass confusion and a small amount of property damage.
Aw, the privileges of youth.
How much peeling lead paint did you devour before your one eyebrow kin folk stopped you?
