SO THE RCBOE wants to have 12-15 furlough days next school year? Despite wasting millions on instructional and grad coaches, paraprofessionals, board employees and useless assessments, they still claim to be broke and want the teachers to pay for it. They are going to run their good teachers to Columbia County.
THE UNITED STATES recently said it would pull “7,000” troops out of Europe in an effort to save about $480 billion over the next 10 years. How about bringing the troops home and tell Europe to stop depending on the foreign aid we need here in America!
CAN ANYONE TELL us what happened to the Democratic Party? When I was a junior in high school, newly elected President Kennedy famously said: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country!” Now the current president is encouraging people to do just the opposite.
THE COUNTY IS SO worried about people breathing in secondhand smoke, yet they have been subjecting us to days of burning trees that they have been clearing. The smell is overwhelming, and the air looks like a fog has settled over the neighborhood. Time to knock it off!
I’M SO HAPPY TO hear that Roseanne Barr is running for president. Once she releases her financial records, everyone will know she is a 1-percenter! I’m wondering if she’ll willingly offer her neck to the guillotine.
IT IS AMAZING THAT the stock market and jobs are on the rebound in spite of Obama’s anti-capitalism czars and anti-business executive orders.
ADOPTION IS ABSOLUTELY wonderful, and God bless those who adopt a child or children. But I can’t help but wonder why children from other countries are considered before children in the United States. Think of all the children in our country who are desperate for love, compassion, home, food, clothing and an opportunity for a better life. This is just my opinion, and I realize I have to respect the decisions and business of others. Again, God bless those who adopt.
THE PEOPLE OF south Augusta are getting mighty tired of paying more for garbage service than the glorified city folk. Millions to Laney-Walker. Zip to south Augusta.
