  • Once again, another child’s life impacted by a senseless act of aggression. Glad Gainesville leadership is still seeking to emulate Chicago as their example of liberal leadership and what it can accomplish….NOT! Thanks to King Poe and the rest of his cronies.

    • Can’t blame Poe for this one. This happened west of I-75, in the beautiful glorious Bircherland of Springs County.

      • Didn’t say it was in Gainesville but nice that you made a good point to make note of.

        Maybe people like yourself will see how the impact of the liberal policies being enacted by Gainesville leadership is spreading into the outlying communities like a disease. A pestilence taking over whole communities not only here but throughout the country. People who claim to be woke but unable to wipe the ignorance and hypocrisy from their own eyes will always look to blame others and devour the people who have a different opinion..

        Try as we may, no mask will afford anyone protection from it…

      • Holly Heights could be renamed Hellhole Heights. It’s about as “blue” as I imagine you could get here in this area. Probably 90-percent plus registered Democrat, most with brainpower just above the ‘group home resident’ level. It’s a real testament to Democrats.
