A RAVE FOR President-elect Obama. Will we be able to get our "share the wealth" checks before Christmas?

MARTHA KING really and truly is a blessing for Augusta. God bless you, Martha King, for putting up with Augusta. We love you.

THIS IS A RAVE for our great Sheriff Ronald Strength and all of the R.C.S.D. Thank you for keeping us on Bungalow Road under house watch. It's great to know that as busy and understaffed as you are, you do care about our safety. God bless you for a job well done.

THIS IS A RAVE for Obama for winning. I'm white and I voted for him. I hope he is as good a president as Bill Clinton was. We don't need another Republican in the White House.

I WOULD LIKE TO know why everybody is calling the new president an African-American when he is half-white and half-black?

REPUBLICANS , maybe you will learn your lesson and not resort to petty and vile mudslinging in future elections.

I HAVE A RAVE FOR the voters participating in early or advance voting. Some stood in line for hours. The dedication of these voters allowed me to complete my voting process on Election Day in eight minutes.

EVERY DAY GEORGIA State Patrol officers and Richmond County officers on Bobby Jones Expressway are stopping the speeders. I think they should have them out on Mike Padgett Highway.

FINALLY A CHANGE has come. Thank you, America.

THE REAL LOSER IN the election was the so-called mainstream media. They have lost all sense of objectivity.

WE FINALLY GOT someone back in the White House who might be able to clean up the mess that we are in. Remember, it's going to take a year or two to get us out.

TO THE MAJORITY of voters in this country. On Nov. 4, 2008, you ended the democratic process in the United States of America. In its place will be socialism, then dictatorship. May God have mercy on us and our country.

THANK YOU FOR the rave for Blythe Police Department and Chief Hornsby. He's my brother.

I'm sure you meant to say

I'm sure you meant to say thank you to the GA State Patrol Officers and RCSO Deputies assisting in saving lives by enforcing traffic laws on Bobby Jones Expressway. It would be nice if there were additional officers in our area that could be everywhere at once but with budgets that pay or deputies very poorly compared to all neighboring agencies Sheriff Strength has to work with approximately 40 less deputies than he had when he took office years ago. Thank goodness Sheriff Strength encourages the use of and maintians a positive working relationship with other agencies such as the GA state patrol. Having them assist in our community is very positive step and although it does cost tax dollars, we are benefiting from state tax dollars vs. loacl tax dollars and those benefits are not realized in every county as some Sheriff's fail to work with outside agencies as they should. As for calling the President Elect African American, aren't we all simply American's? If you are white, black, chinese, jewish, indian, etc. and you are a US citizen then you are an American and that should be the only title you need.

It doesn't matter how you wish to label him - just sit back and watch what he tries to do. Enough of all the "mutt" stuff. the "fun" is only getting started. It's going to be a very steep learning curve.....

I wish people would quite

I wish people would quite putting all the blame for these problems that we are in On bush if they knew anything about the govt. they would know that Congress gives the President the power to go to war, sign bill in to action, lets put the blame squarly where it belongs On congress, and yet the idiots keep putting the same People back in office, i just don't get it Congress takes money out of their pockets, lie to them and blame it on the president, and they thank them for that. Ignorance must be bliss.

chad - There are many

chad - There are many blissfully smiling faces out there -- for now. "Praise The Lord and pass the ammunition". Hang in there, man. And no, I can't figure out a 10% approval rating and a 90% re-election rate for Congress either. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the puppetmaster leadership......

Simple answer to that gator a

Simple answer to that gator a good portion of the american populace did not know who was running for congress and had no idea what the issues are. Because they get there local news form eNews Tonight, Heck most could not even pass a simple Civics test about the Govt. Heck a legal Immigrant know more about the govt than most american and that is just sad.

What is the “rule of law”?,

What is the “rule of law”?, Under our Constitution, some powers belong to the federal government. What is one power of the federal government? The Federalist Papers supported the passage of the U.S. Constitution. Name one of the writers, What territory did the United States buy from France in 1803?The idea of self-government is in the first three words of the Constitution. What are these words?These are just a sample of the questions, to become a citizen, How many American can answer these. With out looking up google.

Obama is one of the few

Obama is one of the few African-Americans in this country. Father African + mother American = Obama.

Yes, I've learned my lesson. No more petty mudslinging. Wait, ... isn't that what Dems call the truth about their candidates record? Well, ... maybe I haven't learned my lesson.

Early voting and counting

Early voting and counting makes the elections come out just right. I'm wondering how all the early votes were 100% for Obama. Sounds kind of like a Hugo Chavez election where 100% of all votes were for him. (A country unified under socialism)(nirvana)

We are in a society that

We are in a society that makes us declare "race" countless times starting at birth. Unlike Georgia though, some states have adopted "multiracial" as an option. My multiracial children didn't learn they were "African-American" until they moved here. They were told that if they are any part "black", they must declare African American as their race. Try explaining that one to a child!

I could care less if Clinton

I could care less if Clinton had an entire staff of ladies servicing him in the white house, just restore the consumer confidence and economic health of this country back to the level it was when he left office. Heck you can even change the $ 3 campaign contribution on my IRS tax form to $ 3 presidental pleasure fund and I might actually check the box.

It took a Democratic Congress

It took a Democratic Congress 2 years to get us into this mess after 2 Democratic Presidents had a combined 12 years to start it with the lower income house loans. You all talk about Republicans being greedy when it came to these type loans. Well it was everybody in both parties. Look at Fannie and Freddie which carried 20% of the mortgages. Did ya notice the Democrats at the helm of those organizations? The first to sound the whistle was McCain but the democratic congress didn't want to listen. Unemployment hit it's high level after democrats took over congress and did exactly the opposite of what they said they would do. Pelosi and Reid and their groups talked about bipartisanship but have been the most partisan of any congress. So just remember folks it is not any one party that got us into this situation in is POLITICIANS on all sides that have given it to us doggy style.

Martinez, if the left wing

Martinez, if the left wing press rants 24/7 that the economy is bad, even as inflation is low and unemployment is lower, fools will believe the economy is bad. If they claim the economy is good even though there is high inflation and high unemployment, fools will believe it is good. Look for nothing but good news for the next 4 years.
