I’M LOVING THE sheriff’s new Web site, www.richmondcountysheriffsoffice.com, especially the comment section under “Get In Touch.” You can make suggestions for improving driver safety and much more or ask questions on any subject. At some point the FAQ section will have some great questions and answers. Finally, the 21st century has arrived in Augusta.
IN SYRIA, THE Muslim Sunni are fighting the Muslim Shiites. This has gone on for roughly 1,400 years. Nobody can stop this until one or the other side kills off all its opponents. Meanwhile, President Obama and apparently all other U.S. politicians seem to think they can fix this historical battle, when they cannot.
NO BILL HAS BEEN introduced to exempt members of Congress from the Affordable Care Act, and they were never exempt in the first place. In fact, members of Congress and their staffers face additional requirements that most Americans don’t have to meet.
EGYPT IS IN absolute chaos, as is Syria, as is Iraq, as are dozens of places around the globe. At least a part of this chaos has been financed by U.S. taxpayers for years. We should cut off aid to any country that is not proved to be 100 percent on our side. That pretty much means we can only give foreign aid to Israel.
FOR THE PERSON upset over phones given away by the government, please do a little history research. That program was actually started by his predecessor, George W. Bush. If you have a problem with the program, give credit where credit is due. I personally don’t have a problem with providing phone access to the poor now that you can no longer find pay phones on every corner. So yes, I give credit where credit is due.
FIFTY YEARS AFTER John Kennedy was shot, many files are still sealed and withheld from public view. Why is that necessary? The only logical answer is to shield somebody with major influence in government from getting caught. I wonder who that was/is?
THIS IS TO THE Augusta Utilities Department. My water bill has been due on the 27th of every month for the past 20 years. I just got a bill with late penalties. They should have notified they were suddenly changing the due date, or at least highlighted it on the bill. This is a great way for them to get more money.
