Posted at 11:41 AM, Feb 26, 2016

Once again, it's time for our latest Community Comments.  Our station editorial on the interesting presidential election prompted the greatest number of responses.  Channel 7 viewer Tyrone Williams writes:

"More like an auction instead of an election.  One dollar,  one vote. Sold to the highest bidder!"

James Otto sent us this message:

"They market (Donald) Trump as a deal maker but FDR was the New Deal!   What is let's make a deal?  The deal is the end of USA, constitution, and the USA flag like the South Carolina flag was taken down."

Jesse Perkins shared this comment:

"Being politically correct has hurt this great nation more than so many things.  We need to reinforce honesty and a sense of well-being via that honesty."

Another viewer writes:

Political correctness is the biggest threat to Free Speech in the 21st century.  People need to grow thick skin and a sense of humor."

-Patriciann Palka

Maggie Schnauzzar responded:

"Many people denounce political correctness because they want to keep putting down Blacks, Jews, gays, Latinos and poor people like they could in the "Good Old Days.  I don't think this is a good goal."

Another viewer said:

"All "classes" must be represented, not just the ones with loud voices and loud money."

And finally, this comment from William Laraque:

"Empty vessels make the most noise, my mother taught me."

That's it for now.  Thanks for watching and writing.
