Title of worst president of United States ever is still up for grabs

To The Daily Sun,

I always thought upon reading poll rankings that New Hampshire's own Franklin Peirce was the worst president "ever", then G.W. Bush. But now we have to wait yet to see what the Donald can mess up as president.

I personally can hardly wait. But to think everybody here born bred and/or raised or just immigrated, should show some respect for "their" country. Children, should be expected to say the Pledge of Allegiance every day. So what administration decided to put a stop that? Maybe that was the worst president ever.

I was being facetious; it was a sarcastic joke; I never speak for God

To The Daily Sun,

Dear John:

Your response about me"talking" for God made me laugh out loud and I truly needed that laugh after the day I was having, so thank you. I did respond with a message back and it was not all rainbows and kitties, trust me. But, I have changed my mind on sending that one for a few reasons.

One: I felt bad for you. People were mocking you.
Two: I am sure your elderly and you missed my "joke," completely.
Three: Your probably some ones Papa. And honestly I thought about Mr. Mitchell and how much I enjoy our letters and how I am fond his calm mannerism. And even though I have never met him, I like him already.

Let me explain this to you. What I said at the end of my letter was FACETIOUS and nothing more. That means I wrote that comment as tongue in cheek, flippant,and jokingly. A "few fries short of a Happy Meal" is not a complaint, John. I am sorry you took that God comment in quotes as gospel, but it was not. It was meant to be a joke, funny, and sarcastic, period.

I never speak for God, I speak for myself. Same reasons why I don't need to continuously quote the Bible. And I would hope that if God did "speak" to me, he would not make a happy meal joke. Although that would be pretty funny.....
