Susan Brown: Keep up the good work. Millions of people can no longer afford health care because of Obamacare. The liberals who are whining the most are the welfare crowd who expect everything given to them.

To Sound Off writer "disappointed with Southerners": I, too, am disappointed that Stephen Colbert "told a joke" that was improper, but did the writer forget that Donald Trump used the "F" word and the "S" word openly during his campaign? He's also on tape using the "P" word. Where is his disappointment there?

So the Republican-controlled House couldn't even repeal Obamacare? Solution: leave a lot of the original provisions in place so they could get anything passed and kick the can over to the Senate. Now they can't come up with any better alternatives either. A wall isn't going to get built without money, and it's not in any budget agreement. Gee, can't wait to see how the wealthy get taken care of in so-called tax reform. Get ready for another massive failure.

Sixth District congressional candidate Jon Ossoff must have gone to the same school of slick talk as Obama. He fits right in with that crowd

Politicians act when enough of us call and insist on answers. An inquiry would reveal if President Trump illegally told the FBI to stop investigating Flynn. If Trump didn’t, then we can finally clear the air and move on. Make the call—then no matter what, you’re not to blame.

President Trump is well within his rights to discuss politics with world leaders. What worries me is Obama spying on all of us and Hillary Clinton compromising our national security on a private server and getting away with it. Thank God Comey is gone.

The recent actions, inactions and misdirections of our accidental president remind me of the sage Texas description of one whose ego exceeds his talents: He's all hat and no cattle.

To all the Trump haters, if they escort Trump from the White House guess who will move in. It's not Hillary, Duh.

"Our president" tells us that anything about him that's not flattering is false and Obama's fault. Then he tells us that everything that flatters him is his accomplishment. When 17 worldwide intelligence agencies tell him the Soviets screwed with our election, he says it is untrue, impossible, fake and there's nothing to see, "Believe me."

Seems our congressman has gone incommunicado as he refuses to conduct in-person town hall meetings to explain his votes to his constituents. The latest gimmicks are "phone meetings" where participation and questions are controlled. The Founding Fathers would be ashamed at an elected official not facing those they represent in person.

A judge frivolously releases a dangerous suspect without bail, chastising a GSP trooper for his incomplete paperwork. Then, when a second-chance encounter with the same suspect occurs, no warrants are found because the same judge had failed to issue his own arrest order. A courtesy phone call was made to the judge but not afforded to the trooper.

Why in the world are people saying that they will not re-elect Robert Stokely? He is not an elected judge, but an appointed one. That just goes to show how much the both the public and the NTH know. Get educated before you make such comments.
