Statues, monuments, street names, even flags and banners, reflect on the Story of this Great Nation; the Story of how we got where we are; the Story of what decisions were made and how they affected our Growth as a Nation and a People … none of that can be changed by destroying a statue or a flag … Believing History can be changed is idiotic … I'm afraid we're on the verge of another American Civil War and it will be much worse than the last one … perhaps a committee should be formed with the express purpose of going house-to-house, store to store, all across this Great Nation to find, remove, and destroy all Offensive Items such as Confederate Flags (National and Battle); all paintings, drawings, sketches, etc depicting any and all weapons, uniforms, persons (to include General Robert E Lee and General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson); all toys and figurines depicting Confederate battle scenes, soldiers equipment and other implements of war used by the Confederate forces … NOTE: this removal project is to ignore all parts and pieces related to the UNION half of the American Civil War …

To the Editor: The American steel industry is under attack from a surge of unfairly traded imports across a wide range of products from a variety of countries, many of whom continue to disrupt world markets by subsidizing the production of steel products and dumping those steel products in the U.S. market. U.S. trade remedy laws are the only means by which the steel industry can mitigate the harm from unfair imports and help prevent more plants from being idled and more workers from losing their jobs. On behalf of the American steel industry I would like to thank Rep. Bradley Byrne for his tenacious support of steel producers and our workers by co-sponsoring “The American Trade Enforcement Effectiveness Act,” to improve the effectiveness of our trade laws, and signing two strong letters to House leadership on trade enforcement. If the American steel industry is to regain its pre-recession strength then the government must not let trade cheaters off the hook. This legislation stands up for American workers whose jobs are put at risk by global competitors who skirt trade laws, and goes a long way in promoting more fair competition for the American steel industry. We are tremendously grateful for Rep. Byrne’s support. Sincerely, Thomas J. Gibson President and CEO American Iron and Steel Institute Washington, DC

If you ask me how I’m doin’ I’ll tell you that I’m fine. That is my typical response. I don’t want pity from people. If there is a problem in my life I don’t usually share it. If I do share whatever problems may be bothering me, I share with real friends, people I actually see and talk to in person. What I don’t understand is how people can go on social media sites and basically beg their social friends to show them pity! A few of my S.M. (social media) friends have well over one thousand friends on their page and is constantly begging for attention. I just don’t get it. I have less than three hundred friends on my page, and that is absolutely fine with me, because about a quarter are family, and another quarter are either people I have worked with or are friends of my children and their parents. The last half are people that I have went to school with. The fact is I know these people! Can you honestly say that you know everyone that you are S.M. friends with? Furthermore, do you want them to know all of your business? I suppose you can answer yes to at least one of my questions to you, that yes, you do want them to know what is going on in your pathetic life, otherwise you wouldn’t have posted it to the internet! I am truly sorry that your Auntie passed away at 100 years of age, five years, two weeks, and three days ago. Seriously, be happy that she led a long life. I am also sorry that your dog Wilbur was ran over by a car. Wait, is that the same dog that you kept outside and chained up? What did you expect the poor animal to do? Wait for you to come out once a day and throw it some food, the poor beast was probably trying to get away and hoping for a better life! I tend to share the more enjoyable things in my life. Like that my 10 year old made the honor roll at school! Or that my oldest is a senior this year. I also like to take pictures to share with family and friends that live too far away to visit often. I don’t like to share the bad or what I’m constantly feeling because I know that even though I may get sympathy comments or likes on my status, no one really gives a hoot! I know this because I don’t give a hoot myself when you post your poor pitiful me drama! Rant OVER!

I wish the Citronelle would take a look at Mobile's garbage can ordinance! I am so tired of dodging those cans that are halfway in the street. Mobile's ordinance fines people of the can is left out too long after pickup!
