presstalk 671-TALK


• You have got to be kidding me. I just read the farragutpress presstalk and someone in Thornton Heights is complaining about the location of the Farragut Post Office? Are you kidding me? Does anyone else realize how close the two are together? I cannot believe in this day and age when there are so many problems going on in the world, that someone is lazy enough to complain about Thornton Heights and the post office, and wanting to have post office boxes located elsewhere. Come on folks. Get real, get a life. The post office is wonderfully located.

• Yes, this Tennessean voted for John McCain out of fear. One day I’ll stand before God and be judged for everything I’ve said and done throughout my life, including who I voted for. I did not want God to remind me that this nation was one Supreme Court Justice away from overturning Roe versus Wade [landmark abortion case] and the bloodbath that it allowed. God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, and McCain fully understood that. Great empires fell due to moral decline. May God not turn his back on America too.

• I’m responding to the person who called last week and they said they couldn’t believe how many people in Tennessee are so out of step with the rest of the country by voting for [Barack] Obama. Obama got 52 percent of the vote, [John] McCain got 46 percent. That’s pretty close to 50-50, so I don’t think we’re out of step with anyone. I voted against Obama because he supports abortion and because I felt that he was too liberal. Nonetheless, he’s our president now and I’m hopeful that he moves to the center and that he does become a good president.

• Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities. With that in mind, the farragutpress has developed policies that will be followed regarding the publication of presstalk comments:

• Libelous comments will not be published.

• Malicious comments will not be published.

• Comments will remain anonymous.

• Recorded comments will be limited to 30 seconds.

• Names of individuals or businesses mentioned in the call may not be published (including public figures and officials) depending on the issue.

• Comments mentioning names of public figures, not issue related, will be published as a “Letter to the Editor” and must be signed.

• farragutpress reserves the right not to publish any comment for any reason.

• Because of space limitations, not every comment will be published. Also, portions of the 30-second message may be omitted, but the basic message of the call will remain intact.

• Vulgar language will not be printed.

That’s it. The forum is open for comments regarding anything you have on your mind — local politics, world affairs, sports, religion, community affairs, city-county unification or anything else.
