  1. Another gem from Sylvia Cooper. I’m amazed by Sheriff Roundtree’s superhuman ability to stay focused on the driving infraction despite a valiant effort to change the subject with a photo and story about a coyote under the Aiken Library. “He’s been working there for two days, and he came crawling out.” I would have been totally sucked in, wondering whether it was the man or the coyote who had been working under the library and whether it was the man or the coyote who had come crawling out after two days. All that juxtaposed to Sylvia later having her faced licked by dogs and emerging from under a swivel chair was priceless.

  2. Main Stream Media is now the DUMSTRUCK MEDIA they were outspoken when Trump got elected and made so many good changes….now they are dumbstruck astonished that Senile Joe is so senile that they can not stop talking about Trump instead of Senile Joe….

    {Definition of dumbstruck: made silent by astonishment}

  3. I believe it also might have been necessary to push this bill through because the previous changes were illegal in that they did not go before the State legislation and get voted on! Please Sylvia make a big deal out of this by telling all the truths behind this bill and undo this ridiculous statement that is a Jim Crow type ordinance! It is not! Everyone needs to read it abd and do their homework ! At every polling area there is an area of 150 feet where no one may campaign or hand out anything! Democrat groups abused that in areas last election by promising and handing out food and drinks in restricted areas. Poll workers May give someone water if they need while being inline waiting to vote! Saturday voting times are in place!
