RAVES TO THE JUDGES who are doing their jobs by staying the execution of Troy Davis because of the serious doubts about his guilt.

ALAS, FOREIGNERS, TOO, got snookered by Obama.

AUGUSTA COMMISSIONERS are considering naming a "proposed" judicial center for a living judge. Bad idea. Don't name any such thing for a living person. Something always comes back to haunt you.

AUGUSTA AREA SCHOOL KIDS and teens, please pitch in to keep our streets litter free. It belongs to you.

I DID NOT VOTE for him, and I do not agree with any of his political views. But now it is my responsibility to pray for him every day. I look forward to the opportunity to fulfilling that responsibility.

RAVE FOR LYNN BAILEY with the Board of Elections. She did an excellent job. We had no problems here in Richmond County. She is a super woman.

HOPE OUR NEW president will send us checks to help us through these bad times instead of sending checks overseas to people that can't stand us.

I WAS IN TRINITY HOSPITAL waiting on my granddaughter to see the doctor. I went in the bathroom and left my wallet in the bathroom, came out. Another lady went in and saw my wallet with everything in it and she brought it out and turned it in to the desk. I want to say thank you.

A RANT TO my neighbor on Pennsylvania Avenue who stole my Obama sign from my front yard. He admitted doing it and would not apologize or return my sign, which I painted myself.

THIS IS TO ALL those people who think that God chooses who will be president. I think this time God, along with the people of America, obviously made a bad choice.

RANT FOR ALL the Republicans trying to attack Sarah Palin. She was right to call them jerks and cowards, but she should have expected it.

Obama won by 52 percent of

Obama won by 52 percent of the POPULAR votes. That is a far cry from this country being united. THe electoral college has outlived it's usefullness and needs to be abolished. Even if we elected a President by popular vote the prescious Obama would have won but he would realize that the win was not a MANDATE FROM THE PEOPLE. How many states you win should have no bearing on the election. And some people wonder why others think their vote doesn't count. Democrats votes in Georgia didn't count any more than Republican's votes in California.

Concerning the hand-painted

Concerning the hand-painted Obama sign just remember ranter that the person who took it was just getting his share of the "wealth" from Obama's policy of sharing> to you> to the person who needed the proceeds from most likely selling the sign...Isn't that how it is supposed to work under Obama's sharing policy?

What a moron. Even as a joke to say that he think GOD made a bad choice. Only a know it all republican would think that they know more than GOD.

Nope hasn't already been in power. The anti-Christ becomes the one-world leader. And what have they said about Obama uniting the world? Yuppers I think we HAVE a WINNER.

All I can say is look at the headlines. If Obama is mortally wounded and comes back stronger than ever - hold on to your hats because it's going to be a bumpy ride. And being a saved Jew (Messianic) and an enlighted Jew that didn't actually vote for him I'm looking forward to the rapture.

I guess Dr.(?) Bedden had to get busy rezoning the A-RC School System. Too bad, we were just getting cognizant sentences out of Him. Maybe he'll come back for an encore. Get those "Thinking Caps" on.

Trouble, You have nothing to

Trouble, You have nothing to worry about, Dr. Bedden is FAR too important to tend to the meager task of teaching. When he gets finished with Re-Zoning, I have a sneaking suspicion that your kids will feel like they have been playing Twister, and your pocketbook will look like a Waffle. Don't forget, if they fund urban renewal with those "Newly Approved" Allocation Bonds and can't repay the loans, they WILL raise YOUR taxes to make up the short-fall.

Cliff, go jump off one. Just

Cliff, go jump off one. Just because someone lives in the south DOES NOT mean that they dislike someone (or didn't vote for them) because of the color of their skin. The reason Obama didn't get my vote is because he's a SOCIALIST that has shown a pattern of voting to take away the rights of citizens to own guns. You making the assumption that those of us that aren't happy with the election results are unhappy because of skin color shows just how racist YOU are. Big deal if Obama is half black...he's also half white. The next time you go off half-cocked and pull a comment like that out of your arse you should try bringing your head with it.
