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?

Are we all not in agreement that the no sale of alcohol on Sunday is a religious rule?

Yes Chief Justice Roberts

Yes Chief Justice Roberts screwed up when reciting the oath. President Barack Obama memorized the oath and knew that Roberts got it wrong but handled Roberts mistake in a dignified manner. Folks please do not attempt to twist the known facts to fit your assumptions or false ideations.

Trying to place blame for a simple mistake in the oath is hilarious. Can you imagine the emotions for both men? I'm surprised it doesn't happen much more often. I certainly didn't vote for Obama, but c'mon.

Lorraine if he had have corrected Justice Roberts then President Obama would have lacked class or again been accused of making a mockery out of the oath. No matter what he does there are going to be people attempting to find fault.

Imangller, dear, you might be

Imangller, dear, you might be traking the R&R too seriously. As for apartheid not existing in South Africa, apparently you have never visited Israel. Apartheid exists everywhere bigots do. As for Dr. Rice, I cannot overlook her enthusiastic buttocks kissing of Bush or the short shrift she gave Powell. Justice Thomas has never opened his mouth so the jury is still out on him.

Can you imagine the

Can you imagine the distractions faced by Justice Roberts? First he had to dodge those enormous ears just flopping in the breeze, that empty suit was whipping in the breeze and trying not to laugh looking directly into that reed thin Herman Munster face. I was truly impressed by both men.

I see where Hussein is asking the Muslims for understanding. He does not care what Americans think as long as the Muslims agree with him.

Heres a great idea I heard

Heres a great idea I heard yesterday (some of you probably heard it too) on being truly bi partisan with the 850 Billion Stimulus package: 56% of the american people voted for Obama and 44 % voted for McCain. So, what president Obama should do is take 56% of the 850 and spend it on what he and the dems see fit. Then let the Repubs take the other 44% and put it where they see the greatest benefit. After several years we will see what worked and what didnt. Wouldnt all the american people's ideas feel somewhat represented by doing this? What could be more bipartisan than that?

Wow resorting to insults

Wow resorting to insults about someone's appearance because you disagree with their politics. That makes the political insight on this board so clear.

What we need is

What we need is Infrastructure. We need a Liquor Store, a crack house, a phone booth, and a produce stand on every street corner. Now that's Infrastructure.....and that's all we need......and one ATM machine, in the dark alley next to my house......And that's all I need to get by. Don't need no stimulus check or no handouts......just need some Infrastructure......and a Church's Chicken on them corners next to the Liquor Store...........and that's all the Infrastructure I need............and a laundromat.....

whoistellingusthetruth, RCR has some of the most well thought out posts in the comment section (whether you agree with his ideals or not). Never in any of his posts that I've read has he or she used poor grammar. For you to reduce his or her thoughts…

Their class is showing more than an ear fetish. Facts mean nothing but as long as I can make a negative comment about someones appearance or some other subject that doesn't make a bit of difference then everything is fine.

Sandy just remember that APT didn't cut any of the hill routes that carry the maids to work. And I don't think they did that because they especially like the maids, but out of necessity for the people who can't make a bed.

I4Putt you are pathetic and the fact that you had to pull up some comment I made defending another poster from 4 months ago to defend your immature comments makes you look like more of an jacka-- than any sensible person already realizes you are. You don't have to agree with someone's politics to not to resort to person attacks it's called being an adult try it sometime.
