I LOVE Danielle Moores’ Dine & Dish feature! Her descriptions and details of the foods are a great help to us foodies. Please keep it going!
HATS OFF TO THE recent author workshops hosted by the downtown library. And for free, too! I sure hope they will do more of that and be sure to announce them more ahead of time.
LEE ANDERSON (GOP candidate vs. Barrow) says he wants to cut “each and every (federal government) department 5-10 percent.” Why not completely obliterate the obviously unconstitutional departments, e.g., FDA, Dept. of Education, etc.?
A RANTER SAYS if churches paid property taxes there’d be no deficit. Will churches’ taxes amount to $15 trillion? Politicians don’t care how much money government grabs; they always want more.
RAVE FOR THE Columbia County Tax Assessors Office. They valued my boat 9 percent more this year. I’ll use it for the next 10 years, then sell it to them and buy a yacht. I’ve never had a boat or vehicle increase in value every year.
MORE NONVIOLENT CRIMINALS should be used for grass cutting and other outdoor maintenance chores that we obviously don’t have enough paid city workers to handle. I would say there should be enough of them to use from probation status to also have them cut the grass of elderly homeowners or even of abandoned properties.
REPUBLICANS CLAIM TO be deficit hawks, but they refuse to raise taxes on the nation’s wealthiest by even one cent. Rather, they have proposed gutting nearly every program working-class Americans rely on just to get by.
TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO claim they will pull the new health care laws that were confirmed by the Supreme Court: Let’s hope it’s you and your relatives who reach the current cap in medical expenses and then wish there weren’t. Let’s see you and your kin be rejected for coverage of pre-existing conditions. Can you then get Romney to get some of his Cayman Island funds to cover your medical expenses you did not want covered by the new, wonderful health care laws?
OBAMA IS ORDERING Border Patrol agents to run from any “active shooter.” In other words, Obama is ordering our guards to not enforce the laws they are hired to enforce.
