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?

Folks. IF you had elected

Folks. IF you had elected Hillary, She would have given the Oath of Office from Memory, in fact, she did, she did give the Oath by heart from memory. She just didn't happen to be President...at the time. LMFAO. Maybe she was just doing positive reinforcement. Oh she wants so bad to be Just Like Bill. I wonder if she's had conversion surgery yet?

Waterman, this has nothing to do with drunks. A different perspective... the goverment will be banning sweet tea sales on Sundays. It has nothing to do with the particular liquid but everything to do with principles and freedom.

No waterman, just a realist

No waterman, just a realist who knows a little about Biblical Facts. I hope all of the stores get to sell alcohol on Sunday. Maybe then, the bootleg houses will have to close. The price of alcohol on Sunday will drop dramatically too!

If President Obama made the

If President Obama made the mistake, then why did Roberts ask , if he could do it over? Also he {Roberts} admitted that he made a mistake. Remember, President Obama, was a proffesor of constution law, and he knew that Roberts had made a mistake. I think he did it on purpose, because Obama, voted against him to become a supreme court judge. You people can say anything you want to about our president, but you will never be able to say it yo his face. The fact is you people are so racist, that regardless of what he do, you all will always find something to b---- about. But if it helps you all to make it through the next four years, go ahead, we dont have to read it or answer to it. Have a good four years, I know I will!!

To the moron that posted the George W. debt rant. Your evidently a idiot to think one person created all that debt. Better yet, your probably collecting welfare checks and contributing to the national debt.

mimsy, It really is comical

mimsy, It really is comical if you think about it. Him being a Constitutional Law Proffesor, you'd think he could recite the oath without any help. He should have just recited the oath and let Cheif Justice Roberts say whatever he wanted. But, never being weined off of his teleprompter was probably his Achilles Heel on this occaision. I'm sure he probably couldn't say the "pledge of Allegiance" without help either. But if you asked him to sing the Coke Song, he'd hit the mark. Maybe he was thinking about how Lincoln only freed the Slaves in the states that the union was fighting in 1863 and got distracted by the ponderance of "when" the union slaves were "actually" freed. Who Knows, maybe Hillary's KARMA was like a little gnat buzzing in his ear. Then again, Mechelle might have had halitosis and distracted him. Even Messiahs are Human it seems!

mimsy, if he ever does something right, i will congratulate him, but as long as he is releasing terrorists and killing babies, it is not hard to find something to b---- about, if you had a brain, you too would be complaining, but seeing as you are blind to anything that the man does wrong, that will never happen, continue with your obama worship until he has managed to destroy everything that this country has ever stood for.

Justus that is BS spooky did

Justus that is BS spooky did not know the oath he screwed it up just as bad and did not say it correctly after he paused to think and figure out what happened. He still screwed it up without Roberts saying a word. Or if you go on my website I have a link to where you can buy hearing aides.

Now President Obama let us

Now President Obama let us not get to carried away with the "playing nice" by apologizing for this United States of America...We have done nothing in which an apology of any sort dictates when it comes to the Middle East Muslim Terrorist...They have declared a holy war against everything American as well as the age old war with the Israelis...

gamc30909 the black part

gamc30909 the black part doesn't bother me...The problem, as I see it, would have to be his close friendship or ties to the Muslim world...But then there are the rest of his extreme liberal views that bothers me...The black part no....Since as of now with Obama's election we no longer have to play the blame game...Now the key words people are to live by are responsibility and work...

Would you people get a grip?

Would you people get a grip? African American is an expression to signify a point of view. It has little to do with race and a lot to do with physical appearance and attitude. With all that can be criticized about our current president, why focus on irrelevancies.

IMO you are either an American Citizen or an immigrant. Citizens should be proud to be an "AMERICAN" and while immigrants should be proud of their English, German, African, Irish, etc. origin they should be working as fast as they can to become "AMERICAN." If a person is so proud of their hyphenated status they ought to go to that other country to live.
