Here are some of the issues that area residents are discussing. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motivated the callers:


If you drive a Hummer, all that means is you’re dumber.

I can’t believe what I just saw, a motorcycle with training wheels. Who would ride that?

I seen in the paper, in the blotter, where a man said he was going to kill himself, that he heard voices. This is just another typical way of someone getting on disability that doesn’t deserve it. He’ll play crazy and in a year or two he’ll be a big, fat freeloader.

If you’re pregnant and you only work in a store getting minimum wage, you are getting assistance from the government. No one can survive off minimum wage.

If you cross the North Korean border illegally, you get 12 years hard labor, cross the Afghan border and you’re shot, cross into China and you’ll never be heard from again. But cross illegally into the United States, you’ll get a job, food stamps, credit cards, free education, subsidized housing or a loan to buy a new house, a driver license ... and all this without speaking English. Isn’t America great?
