PRESIDENT OBAMA suggests a large family struggling with increasing gas prices should buy a motor vehicle that doesn't exist -- and people on the left thought Sarah Palin's death panels were bad?

HEADLINE: "Big budget cuts are OK'd by lawmakers." Why keep lying? When the ultimate cost rises, there is NO "cut" in a budget. This is just confusing jargon spewed out by both Obama and Boehner.

GEORGIA'S LEGISLATURE claims it "delivered a rebuke to ... Obama's health law..." by approving a state health care bill. Having your personal health care taken over by government -- whether federal, state or local -- is still Marxist state control of individuals. That's not a rebuke to Obama. Get government OUT of people's business. Does no one in Atlanta understand English?

I THINK IT SHOULD be mandatory that anybody on welfare or food stamps should have to take a drug test, just like people who have a job.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEND a huge rave to Enterprise on Washington Road. The two young men there, Donovan and Maurice, they were very helpful and thoughtful. ... They went above and beyond. Thank you so much.

"DIGNITARIES" (which dignitaries?) announce they'd spend (who's paying?) $47 million for a presidential library to house George Washington's 2,500 books and important papers. Mount Vernon is already big enough to house Washington's books and papers. Not even one name was mentioned in the story. These unnamed dignitaries "hope (it) will evolve into a 'think tank.' " What do you want to bet, if you trace it back far enough, you'll find marxists behind the whole thing?

OBAMA SAYS THE GOP budget "cuts" will turn the U.S. into a third-world country. Since the GOP "cuts" are no more truly "cuts" than the Obama "cuts," neither party is cutting anything; and NOT cutting has already dragged us down to a two-and-a-half-world country. We're sinking as you read this, and since Obama's long-term goal is to turn the U.S. into a poor-folks dictatorship, Obama is very happy with our struggles. As long as we struggle, Obama enjoys it.

THIS IS A RANT FOR Phil Mickelson. Phil Mickelson is an arrogant jerk. Famous people have their photos taken in public and posted around the world. Krispy Kreme ought to have his photo blown up to poster size, framed with a caption below it, "Arrogant, narcissistic jerk" and put back in the Krispy Kreme. Don't let this guy slap you around like this. Stand up. Do something.

I'M RANTING AGAINST the ranters in Friday's paper. There are several ranting against Phil Mickelson, his representatives, calling Krispy Kreme to take down Phil's picture. Well, I'm pulling for Phil no matter what. It's one thing to allow fans to take your picture for their own personal scrapbooks. But I don't believe he intended that picture to be an unpaid endorsement of the restaurant, and he has a right to control his image. He's still my guy. I hope he makes the cut every time, and I hope he continues to win.
