CONGRESS ISN'T SMART enough to fix the economy, but we citizens can help. When you go to the grocery store, flip over whatever you are going to buy and look at where it's made. If it's made in America, buy it. If it's not made in America, put it back on the shelf. We can build our economy back one dollar at a time.

WE HAVE A new president. Please, cut back on the festivities and let him go to work trying to fix this tremendous debt that George W. Bush created and left him.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND why people complain that they can't spend part of their Sunday buying booze when they've got 144 hours out of 168 that they can do it in.

I'M DISCONTINUING THE paper because it is getting smaller every day and we don't know what is going on in the world.

LET'S HOPE GEORGIA passes the bill allowing for the purchase of alcohol on Sundays, period. I'm a victim of involuntary poverty and need the booze to numb the pain away. Every other victim in this society gets compassion and benefits. How about me?

NEVER IN THE history of inauguration has any president ever made a joke out of it. I'm ashamed to be an American. I'm ashamed to have an individual like that who just couldn't get the words out or anything.

SO, YOU DON'T like the elderly driving anymore? Well, if you would like to come and take me around town to my different appointments and to buy groceries ... and bring me back home, I'll be glad to stop driving.

IF WE ARE all equal citizens, when are we going to stop saying "African American" and call everyone born in America an American?

LAUGHTER IS THE best medicine. We all need the Lockhorns .

I WAS JUST wondering what happened to the little elephant statue that was at the Columbia County landfill entrance?

Can't even get the APT buses to go where they're needed to buy anything, let alone having enough time to want to shop.

The Inaugural Oath gaffe was

Unpublished

The Inaugural Oath gaffe was Supreme Court Chief Judge Roberts' mistake. He was appointed by George Bush but wasn't qualified, and his bumbling of the Oath proves just that. The new president knew the Oath. It was Roberts' fault who refused to carry a card version because he's so smart. What arrogance!

Thank you, JustUs. Seems

Thank you, JustUs. Seems that "those people" are searching under every nook and cranny to find fault with this man, and when they cant they make an effort to take his Blackness away by saying he's only half-Black. Let him meet you in a dark alley, and when you go to the sketch artist I'm sure he'd suddenly be 100% Black. Deal with it people, he is our President and World Leader! So get over it and wish him well or we all fail. Your buddy had 8 years to get it right, so give him some time to correct those failures. Thanks.

justus4 - I remember it

justus4 - I remember it different from you. Justice Roberts quoted the line, but Obama said one word and hesitated as though he didn't remember what Justice Roberts said, then restarted and got confused, therefore Obama was the problem and not the solution.

we dont need to look very

we dont need to look very hard to find fault with obama, his first few days in office showed his true colors, release the terrorists, and kill the babies........keep wishing him well, and he will take America straight to hell, not that you would care, because the fact that he is black is all that matters to people like justus and gsneed.

Remember when Bush came into

Remember when Bush came into office and found his turnover was a bunch of misinformation, the office equipment was damaged and many files were missing? All this new pres. has to deal with is being held responsible for his actions.

Elderly driving is a problem

Elderly driving is a problem for everyone. Beyond having a residential compound that provides the necessary services,(food, medical help and medicines, clothing, church services) I can't think of a solution.

Obama hesitated because he knew Roberts had screwed up. If you read the oath, then you'll realize who screwed up. Roberts admitted it...good grief people.

Only buy products made in

Only buy products made in America! Yep, that'll fix it. All those stores with foreign made goods will go bankrupt and close. Then with the Obama Economy no one will be able to open any new stores, so we'll all be standing in line for government cheese that's made in China! I don't dispute that it is a good idea, but it will have to be phased in rather than jumped into with both feet or we'll be in worse shape than we are now!

As for the Oath of Office for President of the United States of America, if I were the one taking the Oath, I believe that I would memorize it to prevent making any gaffes. Blame the Judge all you want but BO is just as guilty!!!

I hope that some of the jobs being cut by these big companies are the jobs that were "outsourced" to other countries. American based companies need to hire Americans first!

Your memory is playing tricks

Your memory is playing tricks on you, Boston. Chief Justice Roberts did not pause where he should have and he changed the syntax of the oath near the beginning of the first swearing in. President Obama graciously attempted to go along but was tripped up by one of Roberts' ricocheting modifiers. People attach as much importance to what you do as you do. Apparently, Chief Justice Roberts did not attach much importance to the ceremony of swearing in this nation's chief executive. This strikes me as especially odd from a man so accustomed to wearing flowing garments in the most ceremonious branch of our government. I was embarrassed for both gentlemen, but still very proud to be an American. Maybe next time the hon. Mr. Roberts can expell gas or something.
