SINCE OBAMA HAS brought our country to its knees, might I suggest we start praying?

THE ARMY WILL spend $23.5 million to “design” (not to construct) two Army barracks at Fort Gordon, i.e. taxpayers will spend $12 million to draw some plans for a single large hut. That’s gross waste – and obvious corruption – by the military, yet politicians claim the military can’t afford to cut their spending or we’ll lose a battle. Rubbish! ALL of government is so big, we keep sinking, and every government official who fails to fight tooth and nail against this corruption is, himself, a corrupt failure and needs replacing.

GINGRICH WANTS the federal government to fire school janitors and hire students to clean. Since the federal government has no constitutional authority to meddle with schools (a restriction ignored by politicians), why is Gingrich essentially siding with Obama in this federal power grab?

IF AN ADMINISTRATOR is doing a passable job, how can over a million dollars just “turn up” from a budget a year in the past? Fred Russell claims he has the right to spend that suddenly-found money rather than NOT spending it and giving it back to taxpayers?

I WOULD LIKE TO give a BIG rave to the staff at MCG Radiation Therapy Center. I was blessed to have some of the most compassionate, caring and professional people you can meet, especially if you have cancer.

A RANT TO THE people using the library who have forgotten common courtesy. When you bring your kids to the library, teach them to be quiet and practice courtesy. Do not let them put out high pitched screams continually or yell “Mommy come here” at the top of their voices. It’s a library; people are trying to read and concentrate.

THANK GOD FOR THE special person who found my Discover credit card and turned it in to the wonderful Publix folks, who then returned it to me! Merry Christmas!

TO THE YANKEE curious about “lazy” Southern drivers: We instinctively know when you’re behind our vehicles, and we know how easily irritated y’all get over the smallest stuff. Y’all just look so funny when you’re mad!

CERTAINLY WAS NOT a shock that the “Super Committee” could not reach an agreement. Just another wasted expense and failed idea.

SINCE OBAMA HAS brought our country to its knees, might I suggest we start praying? I believe for many they started praying when we invaded IRAQ for no reason (I was there), and in 2008 just before Obama took office when the country begin to run out of money. I think we are finally starting to head in the right direction, with service members in IRAQ coming home for good and will celebrate the holidays with family and love ones. Thank you Mr. President and Commander-In-Chief for putting an end to this 8 year war and for brining our troops home once and for all.

Rant to city of Grovetown.For the last three years we have called the city about the Christmas light on the light pole in front of our house not working. So far this year we have called Public Works twice and guess what? The light still does not work.

Taylor said this on another thread----I agree 100%--sick of it!

Taylor BSaturday, Dec. 3 11:56 PMReport Ignore user I serious. I will provide one weapon. If I don't own it already, I will raise the funds for it. My wife bakes a heck of a cake, and I will wash cars, mow grass, etc... these guys are fighting against a different type of criminal and need to be equipped. You need vests? You need ammo? If the commission doesnt want to fund these items I will. Email me. Atctaylorb@yahoo.com. Anyone wanting to help, email me too. This is gone too far. I am sick of it.

SeenIt, I picked right up on that remembering your trip here and know you own land in the area. So I figured you learned about the mall then as you were signing the papers. Heh. Close I bet.

So exactly where should I buy land? Not that I want to know anything. Just between you and me. Of course I'd never misuse the information. (Anymore standard disclaimer lines I can throw out?) If Don Cheeks bought land near the I-20 exit, I'd really get ready for it.

I like the line, "It's the real deal, Evander Holyfield," that black politician in Atlanta started using in political contexts. I like it so much I've stolen it, in case you've noticed.

I was thinking about the editorial yesterday about irresponsible internet comments. Heck, the Turk, Sean Moores, wouldn't have a job if it weren't for us kids with matches and gasoline posting stuff. The Chronicle has laid off enough people. Keep um working.

Invaded Iraq for NO reason? How about 9/11 and revenge? That was the reason to get even and kill Muslims. What should we have done, cry, shuffle our feet, and beg forgiveness?

Seven commissioners nixed a proposed tax increase Monday that would cost a typical homeowner $70 a year, leaving the countywide millage unset with just a few days to meet state deadlines.
