Hotline

  • Readers' Hotline 12/5/12

    Won’t turn his back
    I called last week. You labeled it as Obama’s Coalition. I didn’t get to finish my message. I was making a comment about I heard people say that God will turn His back on this country because of the people we have leading this country. God will not turn his back on this country. He may take, and already has, our blessings away from us to where He had blessed us with so much. We as a country have turned our back on Him. He will never turn His back on us.

    Don’t mess with Texas
    I am calling in regard to the comment about Texas. Texas is an honorable and wonderful state, and to draw the example of one person who behaved incorrectly is beyond my understanding. There are many Virginians who have done things that are humiliating and embarrassing. Please do not embarrass Texas or try to, with such stupid, inappropriate, selected facts. I don’t know your motive, but I will tell you as a Texan, don’t come to Texas and say something that stupid.

    Rush to hire?

    Pushed away

    Bring the soap
    I am calling about the new store [located omitted] with the young man behind the counter with the vulgar mouth. I thought he had straightened up. I have been in there a few times lately and nothing was ever said. But, I was in there the other day and everything [he said was offensive]. He really does need his mouth washed out with soap. I will not be back in that store.

    Grateful

    Bible knowledge
    “I thoroughly believe in a university education for both men and women. But I believe a knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without the Bible.” — William Lion Felts, professor and one-time president of Yale University.

    What’s the rush?

    Editor's Note:
    Last week, a caller asked for information about a local handmade laundry soap company. The company's contact information, according to owner Terry Russell, is 238-1337 or 233-5615.

    In shape
    I woke to find out President Obama won. I prayed about this real hard and I know God elected Obama because he knew that’s what we needed to keep this country in the shape it needs to be in.

    Meddling parents
    It’s obvious for Carroll County athletics, I don’t know what the fuss is over what district we play in. We won’t be competitive as long as athletics are run by the good ole boy network of parents.

    Keep it straight

    Editor’s Note: Some partisan calls from both sides about candidates in the election were received between deadlines for the Readers Hotline that appeared last week and this week. They have been omitted because, after the election, they are no longer relevant.

    Time to leave

    Jerusalem excepted
    I still say the Middle East will be destroyed with the exception of Jerusalem, where God will set his kingdom up. I know also, the Bible says, “be kind to your enemies and I will heap coals of fire upon their head.”

    Lost in the shuffle
    I was at the Hillsville Town Council meeting when a nice lady had a problem that was supposed to be taken care of in April by the old council. Her councilman had not returned her call as he had promised to do. I can’t wait until next town election.

    Best he could do
    The reason Obama cannot do the things he promised, the Republicans opposed everything he tried to do. He did the best he could. Republicans want their own cronies in there so they can all get tax breaks, run over the middle class and tell people what to do. Get rid of benefits that we need. We are going to be hurting if people put Romney in office. Romney and Obama might not read the Hotline, but people here in Galax can and the ones with families, they need to think about this.
