WISH WE COULD FIRE most of the commissioners; they actually are the sinking anchors of Augusta and cannot accomplish even minimal tasks.
CAN I GET A FREE TREE? I am a disabled veteran of Vietnam. Y’all abandoned us during the war, and America abandoned us after the war. You’re giving away these trees to soldiers. How come I can’t get a free tree?
MANDELA MADE South Africa communist. He had the Russians help him. This is an absolute disgrace that our flags are half-staff.
A MAN WHO KILLED two people on DUI charges gets early parole while Scott Dean sets in jail. Does his name have anything to do with this?
DETROIT IS DEAD and billions in debt. And now the federal government is firmly set on the same Detroit track. What do the Detroit government and the federal government have in common? Socialist leaders?
HERE’S ANOTHER RANT to the North Augusta Police Department. My husband saw a policeman riding in the Wal-Mart parking lot not wearing his seatbelt. Don’t the laws apply to them, too? The chief of police needs to call them in for another talk.
OBAMA WANTS TO be loved by all Americans the same way Mandela was loved by all South Africans. The problem is, Obama does not love all Americans like Mandela loved all South Africans.
NOT ONLY IS THE song It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas politically incorrect: “A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots ... Is the wish of Barney and Ben.” It is gender insensitive, “Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk ... Is the hope of Janice and Jen;” Are Janice and Jen not allowed to shoot? Are Barney and Ben prevented from walking with a doll?
OBAMA USED A White House Hanukkah reception to promote his Iran nuke deal, after Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu already said the deal was a danger to Israel. Is Obama deliberately trying to insult Jews and Israel?
PROTESTERS TORE down a statue of Vladimir Lenin (beginning leader of communism) in Kiev, Ukraine. How ironic, a country that was part of the Soviet Union discovers freedom is a lot better than socialism while Obama keeps tells us socialism is better than freedom.
