"I'm glad City Council voted not to let cruise ships invade Savannah. Now if they could just do something about all the yankees who've invaded Savannah, we'd be a lot better off."

"Can you imagine the trouble Paula would be in if she fought dogs and killed them with her bare hands, or got caught smoking crack while she was the mayor of a city!"

"How is it that J.C. Penney is dropping Paula Deen for something she reportedly did 30 years ago but gladly endorses Martha Stewart, who is a convicted felon?"

"Fourth of July sales offer a great opportunity to show your disapproval to merchants who are being so harshly judgmental of Paula Deen. Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Target, Smithfield, Sears, K-Mart, J.C. Penney and Walgreens are some of the firms that have taken this politically correctness thing too far."

"Out of adversity comes opportunity! Paula, you just self-print your cookbook, hawk it on TV and the Internet and watch it fly off the shelves and through the airwaves! Next with the cookwear! Thumb your nose at those hypocrites who have MBAs and no common sense."

"Changing the name of the Talmadge Bridge to the Ben Tucker Bridge is a great idea. Ben and his music provided a bridge between all races, all ages, both rich and poor. The incredible mix of people at his wake and funeral demonstrated that."

"Savannah, please fix the death trap pothole on LaRoach in front of Majestic Oaks. I blew out a tire in January because of it, and it has only gotten bigger since!"

"I drove by to have a look at the drugstore façade collapse, but I couldn't see much due to all the lawyers in the way."

"Some people seem to think that voting rights means making sure only the right sort of people get to vote."

"It was very nice of you to remember my family members by placing flags on their graves for Memorial Day. Now if you will only remember to remove them before I find them fallen into the dirt. Leaving them in the dirt is very disrespectful of the American flag."

"It took five to sweep away the votes of millions! What is this, China or North Korea, where your votes don't count? Why even vote?"

"All of these CAT freebies, trolleys and ferries need to stop. Ten percent from fares is obscene. Don't our elected officials realize that we can no longer bear an ever-increasing millage rate for such blatant waste of our tax money?"

"Mark my words, if they legalize all those illegal immigrants, they will take our jobs."

"When I ordered a milkshake at three different places, I was asked if I wanted the cherry and whipped cream. Well duh! What is this, some new law set by Michelle?"

"To say immigrants keep our economy running is a slap in the face to the American people. An illegal man looked me in the face and said he would be here a couple of more years because his son is having surgeries for free. Who do you think is paying for that? We are!"

"All you hypocrites who are dropping Paula Deen: Have you considered all the Americans who will lose their jobs as a result?"

"The Vox is discriminating against me. Why don't you ever run my comments? I agree that if everyone boycotted Smithfield, the Food Network and Wal-Mart, it might teach them a lesson on how to not discriminate against someone."
