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?

MY MY MY, I have never in my

MY MY MY, I have never in my entire life seen so much hatred in sooooo many people. People get over it, President Obama is our president so just deal with it. Chief Justice Roberts was the one who made the mistake, that is why Obama paused and didn't say anything.Obama knows it by heart. The next morning they had to go through the process all over again. If you don't know what you are talking about, then just keep your mouth close. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just north of the lost Continent of Mu. But it's an awful diced up country with alot of "Colonial" Districts. I wonder if those "Colonists" call themselves African-Whatever?

I dont care who is to blame

I dont care who is to blame for the oath being bumbled. It looked like a little of both. Obama looked nervous from the get go, and if the judge was feeding him the wrong words it probably wasnt helping. You would think they would keep it down to a few words at a time. 'I "Your name Here" do solemly swear' then go on. they were trying to make it a line and a half instead of just something reasonable. It would be like getting married and having to recite the whole length of your vows without stopping. In front of a million people.

Most Dems do not believe that

Most Dems do not believe that Judge Thomas or Secretary Rice have made great strides. You know, because they don't support Dems liberal agenda.

RANT for President Obama:

RANT for President Obama: Why do you have to go out into the international community and bad mouth America? Quote: "all too often the United States starts by dictating.""We sometimes make mistakes. We have not been perfect." As a leader of the most power country on the planet, you JUST DON'T DO THAT! Just another example of a weak person trying to appear superior by pointing out (false) faults in others, in this case, any administration prior his own.

Well, he actually redid it in the hallway. But he didn't have no Bible, so he had his other hand in his pocket, but there could have been a pocket-sized Koran in there.

The only reason Obama

The only reason Obama hesitated taking the oath was because he knew Justice Roberts was wrong. Everyone has reported it was Justice Roberts mistake not Obama's. No matter whose mistake it was I don't think, unlike the ranter, anyone was trying to make a mockery out of the presidential oath. People are just grasping at straws to find fault with this man no matter how erroneous the basis.

Well what I would like to

Well what I would like to know is what gives people the right the judge what a Christian is or isn't? From some of the comments I read on here on a daily basis they are not filled with Christian love and kindness. They are most certainly not what Jesus would say or do.
