• I feel for you man, your mother-in-law lives in your head. You are trapped by the thoughts coming out of it. You will never be free of her, even if she goes to heaven. If you want to know what your wife will look like in her 60s or 70s, just look at her mother, your mother-in-law.

• First it was thousands of lawyer ads and now political ads. I have worn out the mute button on my TV remote.

• The Iowa caucuses showed us what we already know. Democrats are a bunch of goobers. They can’t even count votes, yet they want to run the country.

• Thank God for First Baptist Zebulon. Church like it used to be and ought to be.

• These rednecks complain about snowflakes, but they are about as big of snowflakes as the liberals. If you don’t believe it, just say anything negative (even an honest critique) about Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson. They’ll get more upset than a 16-year-old girl who got dumped by her boyfriend for the most popular cheerleader in school.

• Why unions never caught on in the South like they did in the North. The plantation owners controlled everything in the Old South and it was ingrained in Southern whites to never go against the plantation owners and to never question them. Unlike other regions, where there were major worker revolts and strikes and men fought and died to fight the big corporations, Southerners just took the low wages and mistreatment and were taught to be thankful for it.

• Why Trump is so popular in the South. White Southerners never go against the plantation owners and he is the ultimate plantation owner. You always got to do what they say.

• I can’t stand Republicans or Democrats. They both want to control your life but in different ways. Neither really are for liberty and freedom, so when the general election comes around, they can both stick it where the sun don’t shine. I am getting tired of all this mess.

• We should be kindhearted but we don’t have to be soft-headed. I truly feel sorry for people who are down on their luck, but I don’t feel sorry for these layabouts who won’t work a lick but then complain about people not helping them. Maybe if you tried just a little bit, people might help you. Try helping yourself a little bit and stop whining and moaning.

• I get tired of these politicians at all levels of government bragging about all the great and wonderful things they do, and I especially can’t stand the ones who push their own business agendas. There’s something wrong when a representative pushes for legislation that will benefit their industry. Completely unethical.

• Big government or big corporations? Not a difference between the two at all, so they both can stick it.

• Churches. Most so-called churches are not really churches but are social clubs. They don’t preach from the Bible and they don’t preach the Gospel. But they sure will tell you how to vote. Got news for you, you hypocrites — nobody tells me how to vote, especially some charlatan who claims to be a minister and man of God. Man of God, my foot. Just because you have these famous singers and politicians and other famous people speaking at your church, it doesn’t make you a church.

• Saw the pictures of the Phoenix House. It’s great that we are helping out homeless veterans, but I noticed those plaques for these do-gooder clubs around here. Can anybody around here do a good deed just one time without trying to get recognized for it?
