“Liberty County School system if we spend more time teaching our children how to read and write instead of NASA we would be in a better place. We have 75 percent of our children not on reading level. If you don’t believe me go and ask some of the 5th grade teachers in the district. I’m one of them.”

“With all the African Americans in Liberty County, why talk against supporting the minority chamber? I know of one of the Hinesville council women telling people in Midway and Hinesville not to join them. The minority chamber does good work and should be supported like she supports the city manager and he has charges against him. Maybe somebody is getting their itch scratched.”

“Help! The teachers at Frank Long have been bombarded with ‘new requirements’ every week since their principal returned from sick leave! The teachers are so stressed out they cannot even teach! One week it’s, ‘You must put student work inside and outside the classroom with commentary, rubrics and standards.’ Then, ‘Lesson plans must be posted on Fridays before midnight and colleagues may not share lesson plans.’ Yet they must collaborate and follow the same pacing guide.  These are only a few of the many ‘new requirements.’”

“To those who voted for Buddy Carter- watch his voting record in the next two years and keep him accountable to what he said in the closing days.”

“Why are the support staff in schools not given an iPad like the students? Some students are breaking theirs and get loaners yet the paraprofessionals don’t get one at all. Priorities are in the wrong place LCSS.”

“I think I heard this correctly on WTOC news, that our mayor said our city manager was found in a prostitution ring that was only a misdemeanor.  If that’s the case I need to open the cat house since it’s only a misdemeanor. I think everyone knows why nothing will be done.”

“I have seen comments in past Sound Offs that Liberty needs to promote development at I95 and 84 in the form of shopping, restaurants, and family activities that travelers and locals want to patronize, but you have waited too long. Bryan County and Rayonier are beating you to it. Think of the jobs and tax revenues from such a development. Everyone east of you does NOT want to drive through Hinesville to shop and we do not need any more Wal-Marts. Bring in a Target or better yet - a Costco and watch the shoppers come!”

“How is Liberty County going to take care of the seniors who become homeless due to the Republicans taking away their Social Security and U.S. government pensions? And how are they going to feed them.  The Republicans are also going to take away Medicare and how is Liberty County going to take care of their medical needs? And the suffering this will cause when the suicide rate goes up in Liberty County? For I am a Democrat and I agree with the Young Republican on terminating life at 50 years old. Why make them suffer? And some of Hollywood movies become real life realities.”

“I served my country for over three decades active Army and the commander-in-chief sets a bad example for America. He does not treat others with dignity and respect. He has opted to put the lives of fellow Americans in danger. What a shame.”

“Why was Kemp allowed to keep his attorney of state position for the duration of the primaries and election?  Just for the sake of looking bad he should have resigned and then people would not be so upset.”

“I have a suggestion for all you housewives that will save you money on your grocery bill. That is based on how the military saves on their grocery bill. First you inventory all the food you have on hand weekly. Second you put the food on hand into a weekly menu. And if you don’t have enough food on hand to complete a weekly menu then you make out a shopping list for the items that will complete the menu. For all the military mess halls have a weekly master menu that tells them what they will need for the week to feed the troops plus they match up headcount for averages of what QTY is needed. Then they send is a request (shopping list) to ration breakdown.”  

“To those espousing fear, or trying to, about what is going to happen to U.S. seniors and that one political party or another will take away our Social Security and Medicare you do not know what you’re talking about. Neither the Social Security nor Medicare is a freebie from the federal government.   We worked all our lives and put in money into Social Security which is and was and still is our pension plan for many of us.   Regarding Medicare anyone who has reached 65 or older and has worked during their adult life and put their money into Social Security when they start getting it at 65 part of that Social Security check has a certain amount kept back to pay for our insurance Medicare. We earned Social Security because we paid into it, and we pay for Medicare Insurance with money they take out each month from our social security check.  QUIT BEING IDIOTS and quit bashing each other in the red or blue line.  If you’re a whiner, and hide and don’t get out there and help bring solutions with each other then you are part of the problem.”

“This is for employers who usually give turkeys to their employees at Thanksgiving. This year please give your employees money instead of a turkey. For most turkeys end up not being cooked and end up in Liberty County dumpsters because wives don’t have time to cook them.”

“To the chick-fil-a person. THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT especially in today’s day and age.  We, as a society nor as a business, owe you nothing but courtesy, and great customer service when such business is open.  A business sets itself up to serve those that come to their business when they are open.  You either go to that establishment when they are open or you do without.  Chick-fil-a has the hours they have because they give their employees time to spend with family, church, and such.  They nor any other business is required to be open 24/7 or because you want it to be.   In your little mind you think there was a big push to get them to be open on Sundays but there were many more, their customers and the community supported them to run the business as they see fit.  CHECKMATE …. 1 win for Chick-Fil-A and the community and one loss for you.”

“It’s evident that the voting system in the state of Georgia is broken and has been for sometimes now. State is still operating antiquated voting machines with no backup systems, no means to generate a paper ballot as back up and no audit trail to track irregularities in the voting system. We have theses ineffective Georgia legislators who only serve themselves at the expense of the taxpayers. The States Government continues to allowed voter suppression to take place along with some other unethical practices. I blame these things on state government who has help to undermine the voters right to a fair and unbiased election for all  Georgia voters. People we must hold our government accountable, each and every day.” 

“I guess the best way to get a job in the white house is to go on FOX or CNN.  How sad. What happened to being qualified?”

“Interesting Melania Trump travels with her husband overseas when he is going to meet with Putin. Is that because she speaks Russian and can act as his translator?”
