Thomas Jefferson also said, 'No free man shall ever be ... debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms ... is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny and government.'

Reading U.S. History ... should be prerequisite of any ... one becoming president. Thomas Jefferson said, 'My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.'

Why are conservatives called 'The Right' and liberals called 'The Left'? ... Read Ecclesiastes 10:2 in the New International Version of the Bible. It says, 'The heart of the wise inclines to the right. ... But the heart of the fool inclines to the left.'

I am an independent voter ... and I don't won't to vote for Deal or Barnes. What to do!

Under the Republicans' watch, starting in 2001, the average family's income went down 5 percent. The Wall Street Journal calls the last 10 years 'The Lost Decade'. What the ... Bush administration did to America was a crime. They got an F in governin'. They have no scruples when it comes to lyin'. They call it spinning. ... Spinning ... is lying.

Hello. Can somebody tell me or maybe at the Herald or somewhere ... why it's takin' so long for the bridge to be ... open again between Portal and Metter?

Bulloch County business owners need to unite and vote out the commissioners ... who enacted this small business tax ... that they refer to as the ... business services of Bulloch County. ... Let's ... clean this county up ... and maybe we won't have to be payin for ... two-year repairs on bridges.

... I'd like to know if anybody knows ... where or ... to call where I can collect child support because Bulloch County Child Support Division won't get off their butt! ... My ex owes me $9,000 ... and they're just lettin' 'im get away with ... payin' $65 a week. ... And ... I'd like to know if anybody knows who I can call ... or get any help. I sure would appreciate it if you put it in the Soundoff. Thank you.

I'd like to apply for a job at the ... City of Statesboro. From what I understand, you can work a year or two, do what the council tells you to do. ... Then they fire ya and give you a year's severance pay. What a great job! I'm ... I'm applyin'.

This is to the man in Soundoff that said his huntin' dogs couldn't read signs. The dogs might not can, but the person that turns them dogs out sure can read the signs.

... If the city council can fire someone without the public knowin' ... then I think it's time that we get rid of all of them ... regardless of what color they are. ... They're beginnin' to think they're a ... above the law. ... Somethin' need to be done.

I just heard on the news ... that ... that somebody passed a law where children casn remain on their parents ... health care insurance 'til age 26. ... That's helluva note. You got a 26-year-old walkin' around ... under his momma and daddy's health care with ... with a diet ... giant pamper ... bout ... baby ... diaper on suckin' on his momma's ninny. That's helluva sight, ain't it?

In regard to the argument ... between the burning of the koran and the burning of the Bible ... no, you will not hear anything about a burning of the Bible in a Muslim country. ... That's done very quietly ... while the people who own the Bible are killed. I don't think anything in the U.S. approaches what's going on in those countries.

I'm very disappointed to see ... how much garbage is layin' on the road, on Lakeview Road. ... I moved here ... four years ago from another city where they did not take care of the roads and pick up the trash. And when I moved here I was so happy and pleasantly surprised ... and now ... goin' out Lakeview Road and down Maria Sorrell, it is really a shame. Hopefully somethin' can be done to get that picked up.

Isn't it great now that Georgia Southern's back in session and all the gas stations in Statesboro have jacked their ... their prices up so that they can make more money off of students? But, yet, gas in Savannah ... is 10 ... to 15 cents cheaper. Why is it that you always gotta rip off ... the locals plus the college students? Come on, people! ... Everybody else is sellin' us as for $2.46 a gallon. Even Wal-Mart in Savannah.

... Are ... are they plannin' on havin' a parade for the ... the resignation of the city manager? ... Should have a ... outlandish, big parade for him ... for his goodbyes.

The city council, they are some sick men. They just make me want to throw up.

... I'm wonderin' why they are pavin' Highway 80 West when it's a good road. 301 North has been needin' pavin' for years. Look how it's broke up and all. Who lives out ... 80? The governor? Who? And 301 don't get no ... attention. ... Won't have to be like ... Johnny Brannen Road and Jerry Hall Road go to hollerin' before it can be paved ... ours has to be paved.

... The people of Statesboro cannot ... afford to let the city councilmen ... control, things the way they are doin'. They think they are above the law ... and can get away with anything. ... We need to stand up now. ... elect new officials.
