Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

Seeing the great majority of certain political signs around the county, one might think that the vote will likely turn out a certain way. But the fact of the matter is that the deadbeat dad — who never worked a day in his life and owns nothing nice but a fancy cellphone — hanging with the druggies on the corner has a vote that counts for just as much as the homeowner who has held the same job for 30 years and owns half the community.

Why is the U.S. Coast Guard spending taxpayers’ money and wasting valuable time looking for some ship’s captain who didn’t have enough sense to look out for himself?
