Is the name of Washington Road going to change, too? President Washington also was a slave owner.

Well, we had a choice between Trump and Clinton. Both of them extremely crooked people. With Clinton, we would be at war with Russia right now. With Trump, we are dealing with him sucking up to the Russians. Everything ends up with the Russians.

Why does the GOP hate most people of this country? Is truly affordable health care too much to expect? Seniors, women and the less financially secure will be hurt the most by the GOP plans.

Thanks to Obamacare, 20 million more Americans now have health care coverage. But instead of building off of his groundbreaking legislation, Republicans are determined to GUT Obamacare and leave millions without the care they need.

Since there are still problems with elevators at Aiken Library, why can’t a gradual incline ramp be built? Lot cheaper than an elevator they can’t get repaired. There are so many in Aiken who know how ramps are built for the mobility- impaired. County board needs to do something so everyone can use the library.

Shame on that doctor who believes health care is a privilege.

Starting fires, breaking windows, stealing, refusing conservatives the right to speak on college campuses, verbal assaults. Democrats. NOT REPUBLICANS. You must be very proud to call yourself a Democrat.

It was a felony to leak Trump’s 2005 tax returns. What’s so funny? They show he paid more than Comcast (NBC’s parent company), Mitt Romney and several other critics. $38 MILLION. I’d say his fair share.

Whoa! Augusta commissioners now want to borrow millions of dollars to demolish 400-plus houses on private property? What is wrong with these elected officials? The first order of business would be to get a clear title to these properties. My goodness, y’all, the taxes are not being paid on these parcels, so let’s get them to the delinquent tax sale.

If pro-life forces in Georgia and elsewhere were serious about reducing the number of abortions in our country, they would support – rather than vilify – groups that make affordable contraception available to women and reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies. But their real agenda lies in policing women’s sexual behavior.
