Yes, good morning. I’d like to thank the knuckleheads that keep switching the time. Now, instead of getting up at 4:30, I’m getting up at 3:30 in the morning. Leave it one way or the other, please.

So we finally know what it takes to shut up Hillary Clinton – Donna Brazile.

Theresa May will be forced to step down as prime minister within a month. If she is replaced with a remainer, then Brexit will be in jeopardy and the globalsts will have wrested control away from the British people. So say a prayer for Boris Johnson (BoJo) or Jacob Rees-Mogg to assume the premiership, which is exactly what the EU is afraid of. They have enough backbone to tell the EU that we’re not married to them so there will be no divorce bill. And we’ll just walk away. The EU needs Britain more than we need them. Just sign me off as An Independent Thinker.

On voting day I hope everybody – or many people in Greensboro – are going to do better than the primary. Less than 10 percent, way less, showed up, and we missed out on the opportunity to get some new blood on the City Council. Therefore, I hope the weather is raining. I hope people will make the effort today, because we have a lot of issues coming up that need some guidance, such as economic development, and, also, what’s going to happen with the Steven Tangier center. That groundbreaking in 2016, it was supposed to be $65 million. Last print I saw where now one year later, $80 million.

I am very disappointed in most of the pre-election City Council. Several weeks before the election, I wrote all incumbents that I could vote for and asked some very simple questions of each. I wrote Nancy Vaughan, Mike Barber, Yvonne Johnson, Marikay Abuzuaiter and Justin Outling. The only response I received was from Mr. Outling. I appreciate that very much. The other four will not be receiving a vote from me on Nov. 7. I’m sure they don’t care, because they each won in the primary, and will probably win their respective Election Day races with comfortable victories. A city council is the lowest level of government representation a citizen can have, and I can’t even get some questions via email, mind you, answered. Wow. As I said before, I’m very disappointed today.

Hello. Rhino Times, Rhino nation. Independent conservative is what I call myself. I see, though, Greensboro has reelected Nancy Vaughan. God willing, I’m moving the first of the year to Davidson County, Lexington, more specifically. And you let go Mr. Barber and Mr. Wilkins, the only two conservatives there. I wish you well. I hope y’all all get sucked up in the Hillary Clinton conservative crud. Because y’all deserve it. Three times with Nancy Vaughan. Come on, people, what kind of fools are you? Anyway, I won’t deal with it.

Good morning, Beep. I saw Donna Brazile last night on Tucker Carlson. You know, words have meanings. Unless you’re Donna Brazile. And, personally, I think she’s full of oats and wheat that has been passed through the bull. And keep up the good work, Democrats.

How come Trump and his team members, everything is fake news until the real news media, CNN, MSNBC, break the stories? Then, all of a sudden, Trump team and Trump admits to it. Once they’re caught, they admit to it. But, yet, before that it’s fake. I don’t understand that. All you people that believe everything is fake, well, you need your brains checked out.

Yes, I would like to comment about these so-called huge wins by the Democrats the other night. First of all, the seats they won are always occupied by Democrats. So they didn’t pick up anything. But they are a desperate political party who will grab at anything and make something look like it’s there when it isn’t. Anything in their favor, it gives a spark of hope for them these days, because they’re so out in the cold and so dumb it’s not even funny. As for our president, Donald Trump, if he hears the Democrats and the media complain about him and trashing him, he doesn’t worry, because he knows he’s so far above them, it’s not even funny. You see, he’s playing chess and they’re playing checkers. He knows what he’s doing. They’re just playing. He puts a little bait out there and they take it and run with it while he gets his agenda passed. He’s the best president in the history of our country.

Hey, what a copout about dropping the three individuals from bringing down the Confederate statue over in Durham. What a copout saying they didn’t have physical evidence. They were on film. They know exactly who pulled it down and who was there. Makes me want to go to those individuals’ house and do physical damage to their house and say, hey, hands off, you know? You can’t prosecute me. I’m innocent. What a copout.

Hello, beeps. I’m calling about the election that just took place. I hate the fact that the same people got in there. I was hoping that we would get some new faces. But, unfortunately, we’ve got the same bunch of people that was in there before. I feel like Greensboro needs new leadership, but we didn’t get it. So, therefore, we’ve got the same-old, same-old. So North Carolina is going to expect for the next four years the same bunch of people. I would like to know how many people wrote in for John Brown. And how many people actually really voted. That’s what I’d really like to know, the number of people that actually voted, because that’s going to say a whole lot about how popular Nancy Vaughan was. I think that Greensboro is headed into a bad place.

Hey, John. I would like you to, please, take a look at Highway 68 and Leburn that’s across from the new Guilford College out here in the northwest part of the county. This NAI Piedmont Triad, Robbie Perkins’ real estate company, I’m just curious all this dirt being moved out here next to this new 68 bypass area interchange. Is that being done at taxpayers’ expenses, all the dirt, all the heavy equipment, etc.? You need to take a look at that. It doesn’t smell right.

Attention, Nancy Vaughan and Mike Barber. I have lived all the 20 years off of Oakview Road and Ward Four of High Point. This week I received flyers from both of you soliciting my vote. I’m sorry I missed you when you probably knocked on doors in my neighborhood. I would have liked to ask where you stand on our new stadium in downtown. I do have a favor to ask of you. I missed seeing your names on the ballot in my precinct. Would you, please, contact me so I can try a precinct close to home where I can vote for you?

I’ve had a personal health insurance policy for, I don’t know, 15, 20 years now. And every year my premium goes up anywhere from, probably the lowest it’s gone up was $7 during one of the years Obama was in office. And the highest it’s gone up any one year over that time has been maybe $100. Well, I would say thanks to probably more to Donald Trump and his inability to get the things done that need to be getting done for the American people, my insurance premium has gone up $800 a month starting in January. Now who do I have to thank for that?

% % %

Thanks to Donald Trump, my insurance premium has gone up $800 a month. I hope every single person that voted for Donald Trump, I hope your insurance goes up $800 a month too. I really hope that it does. I don’t wish that on anybody, but I wish that on the people who are going to vote for someone who is going to make this crud happen to the regular American. Not the poor Americans, and not the millionaire Americans, but regular Americans. Regular folk.

I’ve been exercising my right to vote for 40 years. Never have I seen a ballot with so many poor choices. Instead of voting for members for the City Council, I feel like I’m voting for clowns in a circus.

Yeah, I think it’s awful funny how the Trump supporters and the Republicans hate the Democrats. But, yet, Donald Trump is a Democrat. He’s already been a Democrat. He’s paid more money to the Democrats. He only switched to Republican just so he could run for president, because he knew that Hillary would get the nomination, not him. So that’s the only reason he’s Republican. He switched to run for president. And when it comes to that first thing he did in office was get rid of the mentally ill gun law. He done it. Anybody on Social Security, mentally ill getting Social Security, he rolled back Obama’s law to make it easier for mentally ill people to get guns. So, thanks again, Trump.

Well, I guess I can see why John Hammer doesn’t answer the phone in his office anymore. We used to count on him to be a conservative voice. But when he says vote for a mayor, Nancy Vaughan, who has messed up this town more than any in history, our taxes are the highest in North Carolina, he’s gone. He’s not a conservative leader for this city anymore. The city has been taken over by Northerners and liberals. And we know, John, that your paper means nothing anymore. It’s flapping your liberal gums now.

Hi-de-ho. Old Man Rockingham here. I hear all these people on the Beep talking about how Trump is going to try to do away with Barack Obama’s legacy. I don’t think there is any chance of that. I mean, the man’s transparency that was as muddy as any kind of water you could find, all the lies he told us, and all the deficits, and all the – all right.

After this election, property owners in Greensboro better hold on tight to their pocketbooks. This city bureaucracy loves to spend money, and the new City Council will back them 100 percent, having absolutely no regard for the taxpayer who’s footing that bill.

I still can’t believe that the USA, the country that used to be seen as a shining beacon, is the only country in the world that has not signed the Paris climate agreement. This means that every other country recognizes the threat of global warming except us. It means that every other country has entered the 21st century except us. It means that every other country cares about the survival of the planet except us. It means that every other country comprehends what the scientists are telling us. It means that every other country is smarter than we are. President Trump fails to recognize that not everything is a business deal. Climate change is not about making money, it’s about survival – ours and everybody else’s. Thank you.

Man, I am so done with the NFL. I will never, ever – if somebody gave me tickets to a luxury box, I wouldn’t go. I go to games to get away from politics and the outside world, to be entertained. I don’t go there to watch a bunch of rich NFL players kneel and make fools of themselves protesting. By the way, where were you guys at May and June, April, May and June of last year? Why weren’t you out protesting then? Oh, I know why you weren’t protesting. You were in Hawaii. You were in the Bahamas. You were on cruises. You were out there having a ball spending your millions that we paid for you – paid to you. You were out there having a great time. But you want to pick the NFL, a game, national anthem, to kneel.

I was watching on TV these people went out and looked up at the sky and hollered, because it’s the one-year anniversary whenever Clinton got beat. Why they want to do that, I don’t know. But if they get down around Oxford, or somewhere there north of Durham on 85 and go doing that, they’ll carry them up to Camp Butner and lock them up. I know that they got people in Camp Butner that ain’t never going to get out that’s got more sense than people looking at the sky and hollering. And, then, announce it all over. They done it all over the country. And that’s the type of people that says they want to run the United States. They are in the same category as that bunch, NAACP out in California that wants to change the national anthem. Last week I called in, I’m sure people thought I was crazy and said they wanted to do away with the American flag. Well, I’m not far off. They’re on the national anthem now in California.

About the Roy Moore scandal. Whatever happened to you’re innocent until proven guilty? Not only that, all these Republicans are calling for him to step down, like McCain. Why don’t McCain step down? He’s got cancer. He’s up there resisting everything that Donald Trump does. I think it’s time for Sen. McCain to step down. Not only that, Roy Moore, this could be a political plot against him by the Democrats. You know? I’m serious. The American people are sick of these Democrats putting up all these things against these Republicans. I think that it is a shame and a disgrace. And to slander people with false allegations against them, and they’re automatically guilty. They have to prove that they’re not guilty. I think this is a shame. What if something happened to Schumer? I wish somebody could dig up something on him and Nancy Pelosi.

I sincerely hope that Sen. Rand Paul sues the pants off of that foolish, lunatic, godless, ultra-liberal Democrat neighbor that broke six of his ribs – if you haven’t heard. What a joker. If you also haven’t heard, this guy, like Sen. Paul, is, believe it or not, a doctor. Isn’t it interesting that this incident and the horrifying incident back in June with the attempted murder of a Republican congressman from Florida during the congressional practice baseball game gets absolutely no mention from the ultraliberal, mainstream media? You can bet your dollar that it would if roles were reversed. Unbelievable, but sad, this day and age. I recently cancelled my subscription to the local daily fish wrap. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made in I don’t know when.

Yeah, Steely Dan Fan Man. Somebody called in and asked why baseball players don’t kneel during their games, national anthem, like the football players. And I say it’s because they’re respectable. It’s because they have more respect for the country. And they don’t find it necessary to skip across the field after they make a touchdown – or a homerun, I mean, or make an out at second base like the football players do. They skip down the field like a bunch of little girls, beating on each other, and beating on their chests and all like a bunch of gorillas. And that’s why. That’s your answer right there. It’s because they’re respectable. Baseball players are respectable. And they have respect for the flag, and for the country, and for the people who fought for it. Thank you.

I have just received a Nov. 9 issue. And I haven’t gotten through it all, but I must comment on the first few pages. Thus far, I’ve gotten to page 15. A regular county commissioner makes $20,700 a year. So the retired director of emergency services, Commissioner Alan Perdue, added that amount to that regular retirement, and he’s coming out pretty good with little-to-no information shared of his thoughts.

Uber is on the way out. There use is on a big decline. And the reason being, because people are starting to understand and believe that the legal requirements and the legal regulations that they sidestep are in place actually to protect the consumer, which is the customer. The customers realize now that Uber has sacrificed the safety of its passengers to be technologically correct. That’s why they’re on the decline. Thank you very much.

I see that Michelle Kennedy is on City Council now. She has no education to speak of. She has no work history other than just working for nonprofit organizations where she really had no real responsibilities. So good luck with that fool, Greensboro.
