Time and time again we have read about school bullying and the need to stop it. Yet once again school bullying has made the national news. Sayreville is a small town that could be anywhere in the U.S.
School bullying has been around for years, and each time we say it has to stop and we need to address it. Yet six months down the line here we go again. It’s time that this country stops talking and takes action.
We need to examine all the issues and do our best to keep our children safe. No child should have to be subjected to any type of bullying. As a nation we need to stand up and do what we can and not depend on anyone else.
Praises go to the students who came forward; we need more fine young men and woman to do the same. As parents and community members we must learn to listen to our children and to let them know that we care and are there for them. Don’t wait for someone else to take the steps needed. Take the first steps yourself. Actions speak louder than words.
The people of Sayreville have learned an important lesson. The attitude that nothing bad ever happens is gone. Let’s all join together and learn the lesson as well.
Although the Democratic Party better represents their interests, Southern whites have been duped into voting Republican, a letter writer claims.
Women not as weak as Dems believe
OK, enough of the lies already. Over and over, the left talks about the right having a war on women. Here is the truth.
We believe women are not weak as the Democratic Party insists they are. Even the president wants to set up a program where women can survive only because they depend on the government every step of the way. How ridiculous. Women survived and pulled their families kicking and screaming with them before they even had a say in government.
As for abortion, yes, the left works for the woman’s rights to her own body and the destruction of any fetus she might conceive.
The right fight is for the fetus — the only completely innocent party. Even in rape or incest, the fetus did not do the raping, nor have sex with the woman.
If you want a real war on women, go to the Middle East. Swap your tight short skirts for a burka, have your genitalia mutilated, try to relax under a government that says there must be five witnesses to prove rape.
If you want a political party that may have a few things against women, check the Democrats, who were the most vicious in attacks not only on Sarah Palin, but her daughters as well. Not one of them gasped at the hypocrisy. How about a Democratic president that used the Oval Office for a sex pit with an intern?
I’ll take the right’s war over the left’s any day of the week.
Voter ‘action’ has been to do nothing
Congress has become a dysfunctional and ineffective body unable to perform its constitutional duties. Voters are angry and ready to take action.
By “take action,” I mean more than half won’t even bother to vote. And those who do vote will overwhelmingly re-elect the incumbents and compound the dysfunction by electing even more Republican obstructionists.
To quote Pogo, “We have met the enemy, and he is us.” Or, as Forrest Gump put it more succinctly: “Stupid is as stupid does.”

A letter writer often disagrees with Josh Moon, but says the Advertiser columnist is right about the attorney general’s wrong-headed stance
Moon correct to take AG to task
Josh Moon, last week I excoriated you for your column regarding your dubious claim of infringement of voters’ rights. In fairness I take keyboard in hand to applaud Sunday’s column.
We as both a country and a society are constantly evolving and part of that evolution is recognizing the lifestyles and rights of people we don’t necessarily agree with, but who have won their rights through due process. Our attorney general fails to grasp this.
Once again he is taking an indefensible, politically motivated stance at the expense of Alabama taxpayers. You were correct to take him to task.
