  • When you go to NJ, just about everyone carries a gun and wears a black mask and bullet proof vest. Picking their nose for breakfast and being a felon is a tradition.

  • Trump needs to build that wall around the northern states and keep the garbage out of Florida. Florida needs to do a visitors pass good only for vacation time and then send northerners back home. By the way where can I get a kevlar vest to protect myself from these clowns??

    Tuesday, 6 February 2018, 8:53 pm
    • The only thing I agree with you on is he is a piece of garbage. Your comment is quite ignorant to say the least. You go ahead and put that wall up and all the GOOD UPSTANDING Northerners like myself will pack up all our businesses, Disney, theme parks, hotels and restaurants will go out of business (a very large portion of your economy) which will crash and burn! I just can’t understand the mindset like that. . I can’t wrap my head around it. Maybe, it is a sign of higher intelligence. Have you ever spent time up North? It seems it is more of a jealousy thing and it is beyond ridiculous! In all my years living in New York I never heard a single person down another American because they were from the South. It was never a thought. I come down here and on the rare occasion I hear this garbage. It baffles me! Don’t get me wrong I have been here a very long time and have many close friends who are born and bred here and I truly love each of them! You see they got to know me just as I did them. So you go ahead and petition to have that wall built and pray for isolation because as they always say United We Stand and Divided We Fall!! I agree crime is a major problem we are dealing with throughout our nation, however; the division of this country by those who are still fighting the Civil War in their minds seems to be a greater problem!!! Something to think about while ya’ll eat your grits in the morning:)

      • I think your “higher intelligences” may be slipping a bit. You didn’t get subtle humor.

        Wednesday, 7 February 2018, 8:26 am
        • No, highly unlikely….but humorous on that same token.

          Thursday, 8 February 2018, 9:51 pm
      • Thank you “War on drugs” I am also from New York and I so appreciate all you said here! I could not have said it better. I cringe every time I hear it’s all the northerners. I work and help all people. I don’t care where you’re from. I help all.

        • Your very welcome. I listen to the comments and I think God Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change….like ridiculous stereotyping.

          Thursday, 8 February 2018, 9:54 pm
        • Ditto, but it is obviously clear that maybe, we are not the ones with the attitude problems! This makarchy does make me chucklle

          Thursday, 8 February 2018, 10:02 pm
