If the majority of students in your classroom are failing the class, then it is not the students. It is the teacher. The principal at Liberty County High School look closer at classrooms and check some gradebooks because we’ve got some very good students not doing well when they should be. It’s the way the information is being presented.

Well, I know what side of the tracks I was born on. I got Dollar General, Dollar Tree, I got General Dollars, I got Army surplus and McDonald’s and Burger King. All the high end stuff is on 84, and on my side of the tracks all we got is the low-rent stuff. Too bad.

On television, they said they are trying to legalize medical marijuana. I asked a friend if marijuana would help me? I’ve got quite a bit of pain sometimes. He said no, marijuana doesn’t relieve your pain it just makes you so high you don’t know you’re in pain.

The presidency is not about a host of crazy and untrue tweets. Nor is it about bullying and a "gift of gab."

People who engage in adulterous affairs should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. We need to put that into law!

To the two deputies sitting at First A.B. before 6:30 a.m. Friday, Feb. 10, the rules of a 4-way stop DO apply to you as well. If you’re going to pull off at a high rate of speed, turning on your lights would help. I believe that’s what they are for?!

Well after failing to prevent people from coming in based on religion, our POTUS now begins to tell law enforcement how to discriminate by name. When speaking to a conference of police chiefs in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 8, President Trump told them to report "who the illegal immigrant gang members’re local. You know the illegals, you know them by their first name, you know them by their nicknames." (The Washington Post) Does this mean that anyone with a Hispanic name or Muslim sounding name is now under the scope?

Have the Academic coaches forgot they use to be in the classroom? Don’t allow that position to make you think you have some type of control. Some need to be careful what they say and how they say it.
