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

I agree with the call-ins about “The Young and the Restless.” There’s nothing on TV. It’s all repeats that are years old and nobody wants to hear the same. Everything else is a repeat, and if you listen to the president, all his mess is going to be repeats. So let’s change this television mess around and keep the programs on that are supposed to be on.

Boys, let me tell you, get your grades up …  then you will be able to go to college. Don’t let your ladies outrun your grades. Be sure grades are running just as fast as your little legs are.

Kudos to whomever is responsible for the wreathes on Stewart Parkway. They are sensational.

If you have DirecTV, you can watch the broadcast for “The Young and the Restless”, and if you have Dish Network, I don’t know what station that would be on, so you would need to check your guide if you want to look at the broadcast for “The Young and the Restless.” Enjoy!

What’s the old saying? “A broken clock is right twice a day.” “A blind squirrel will find a nut occasionally.” You had a local news story on the front page that meant something: “Pedestrian killed on 264.” Holy cow, an actual news story in the Washington Daily News. Thank you, and I’m being sincere, thank you. Please, let’s have more local news stories that matters. Again, thank you for your hard work. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, a blessed Christmas and happy holidays to you all.

I just paid my final county tax on my home. Thank the Lord I sold it. No more property tax. I will never own in Beaufort County again. Rent, that’s the secret. No property tax, no flood insurance, no homeowner’s insurance. That’s the way to go. Thank God and all the other little gods there are. My goodness, I don’t have to pay this bill no more.

Why were there so many ads in the Thanksgiving newspaper? Man, it filled my trashcan up. And people fighting over the ads? Ask some of your news carriers about the shape the boxes were in, people stealing ads out of it. I’m ashamed, Washington, ashamed of you all.

So, somebody didn’t agree with the comments about Ms. Pollock’s and Mr. Houston’s columns. Well, if we agreed all the time, we still would be under England’s rule, which wouldn’t be a bad idea. But that’s what America’s about, is not agreeing, freedom of speech, having the ability to speak your mind as long as you don’t say “fire” in a crowded movie house or something like that. But that’s how America was founded, people not agreeing. Freedom of speech is very important to America. I don’t like Ms. Pollock or Mr. Houston’s column or Mr. Williams. I have the right to say I don’t like them.
