So why is the US sending troops to secure Syria's border? How about securing our own border first? I think it is...

Bless the heart of whoever thought I would buy a pizza because it comes with "delivery insurance."

Bless the hearts and heads of those ECU students who do not know the traffic laws for bicycle riding on 10th Street. Stay off the sidewalks and ride with traffic to stay legal, safe and alive. I've almost hit several of you breaking the laws riding however you wish and have no desire to get my car scratched or dented by your body or bike.

C'mon DOT, fix the road in Farmville that you dug up several weeks ago the just left it. BYH for chewing up West Wilson Street so badly that it has destroyed the oil pans of several cars already. Get back here and fix the mess you made already.

If you buy your meat — hot dogs, steak, chicken, etc. — those animals spend their entire lives in cruel and inhumane conditions. From the moment they are born until slaughter they are terrified and in pain. Do your homework, just because you don't see it doesn't mean it's not happening. Bless the animals.

BYH to the downtown economy that stakeholders have worked tirelessly over the past 10 years. If the city officials think the downtown economy can survive without the students, I have some beach front property in Arizona I would like to sell you. I will even allow time for city to vote on a study on whether to purchase of the beach front property.

Public schools will once again be great once they quit trying to be parents to school kids rather than teaching reading, writing and 'rithmetic. Broken homes hurt our schools more than funding. That ought to give you pause.

Bless your heart Tom Brady for being the greatest quarterback ever in the history of the NFL. You are the GOAT.  Go New England Patriots! Win another Super Bowl! No. 7 here we come!

BYH, don't wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden.

BYH, the art of knowing is knowing what to ignore.

BYH, leadership is not about being the best. Leadership is about making everyone else better.

Bless your heart, I am a devout African American Democrat. If President Obama had done just one of the things President Trump has done I would have been the first in line to get him out of office along with the Republicans. Now put the shoe on the other foot!

Way to go valet parking guys at Vidant! We just love that y’all come through our floors and take all our wheelchairs so we have no way to transport our in-patients to procedures. We are supposed to be working together! You make our jobs more difficult. Bless your hearts.
