Mr. Fletcher, did it ever occur to you that the people crying about “welfare babies” were the same ones who were all for aborting their own? People like you will look for any excuse to justify their sinful beliefs.

I hate it when I see some old person then realize we went to high school together.

Hope the palace counted the silverware when the Trumps left.

I see where the country clubs are now advertising for members. I guess those who could afford it must be leaving the county.

Want some face time with Dougherty County Commission Chairman Chris Cohilas? Just go to Pretoria Fields on Sunday, grab a beer and join Chris at a table with his beer. He is always there holding court.

Can’t say God wanted Trump in the White House, but it is crystal clear He did not want Hillary in there.

If you believe, you still must repent often or may end up with a mortal soul.

Good commentary by Cal Thomas. Mueller has disgraced his profession by using “innocent until proven guilty” for Russians, but not the same standard for Trump, an American. He said everything he has to say is in his report. Then why did he give a press conference?

Well, squawker, everybody lies about Trump 15 times a day, so I guess that makes everybody else bigger liars.

With Albany being named the most violent city in Georgia and also the worst city to live in, I doubt a documentary about it will be flattering. Use your head, city council; this is not a good move.

Want to see gas prices continue to drop? Buy gas from retailers who only sell gas procured and refined in the USA. We have made great strides in the past two years toward not being subject to OPEC. Ask your gas retailer whether their fuel is domestic or imported and purchase accordingly.

Carlton, maybe you should write more columns about music and playing ... things you know about. Leave important issues to the grown-ups.

Video of over 1,000 illegal border-jumpers in one single day last month is just crazy. It’s way past time to build a barrier, stop the flow and finally enforce the laws on the books. Trump has at least tried to clean up the mess.

Reply to squawker: I agree that all presidents — and probably all people — lie, just as most people who drive a car speed. And the danger and harm depend, to some extent, on the degree. Trump’s degree of lying is equivalent to consistently driving 100 mph in a school zone.

If you believe Trump lies, then don’t listen to him.

For all you folks that think Mueller found no problem with Trump: From page 214 of the Mueller Report: “If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment.” Open your eyes and ears (and minds).

To the mall Squawker: We were there last evening, and the mall was delightfully cool. We even bought some things and enjoyed walking and shopping in an oasis of coolness. The people were pleasant.

The nutty professor Bernie Sanders calls Trump the most dangerous president in modern history to the Democratic Party. I have to agree with him.
