THE PROBLEM WITH sound on Channel 12 must be in your TV, because, I get good sound on Channel 12 on all five of my TVs.

A KID GRADUATES FROM public school or he flunks out. It's as simple as that. All this "rate" stuff is just to keep citizens confused and make school boards look good, no matter the true results of public education.

HEADLINE SPEAKS OF "gambling's good side." There is no "good side" to gambling. But don't try to tell political leaders that.

THERE ARE STILL GOOD, honest people in this world. Thank you to Mr. Rufus Frazier who found my cell phone in University Hospital's parking deck. Then took the time to contact me and leave it at the front desk. God Bless You!!!

I THINK THE REASON this country is in such a mess is because we have separated ourselves from God. We need to start the day by giving God our best and to be kind to our fellow man. God bless America.

THANK YOU TO ALL STAFF at University Hospital on the third floor who provided excellent care from beginning to end on the birth of our son, who is our blessing from above.

HERE'S GEORGE W. BUSH'S legacy to us suckers: Nearly 2.6 million jobs were lost over 2008, the highest yearly job-loss total since 1945. That's one heck of a thank you.

RAVE TO THE PIZZA JOINT. I had a delicious hot slice of pie there recently. And it was a big slice, too.

I AM SO GLAD THE Bush nightmare is finally over. Despite his incompetence, he deserves a lasting tribute to his name. Maybe we can name our next sewage treatment plant or landfill after him.

I AM SO SICK OF reading the criticisms of former President Jimmy Carter. He is a man of the finest character of any president we have ever had.

THIS IS A RANT. I was scammed by a lady selling black teacup Chihuahuas. I paid $100 deposit which was half. The dogs were to be ready Feb. 14. She has since moved and given me a false name. What has this world come to? My children and their dad and I are devastated. God have mercy on her soul.

To all the posters who have

To all the posters who have been placing personal responsibility on George Bush for all the ills that have befallen this country in the last 8 years. I hope that you will now transfer your ignorant comments to Barrack Obama, as after all he is now the President and has assumed personal responsibility for the next 4 years.

NLA, do you think the press will tell the fools to transfer their whines to the messiah? No, the sheeple will continue to cry about Bush until told to recognize a new Satan.

If Jimmy Carter would keep

If Jimmy Carter would keep his mouth closed so he would only be suspected of being a fool instead of opening it and proving he's a fool, he'd garner more respect from just about everyone.

"THE PROBLEM WITH sound on

"THE PROBLEM WITH sound on Channel 12 must be in your TV," ------ Channel 12's "breaks" on cable channel 32 does have sound issues. Been like that for as long as I remember. You know when they "break" into CNN Headline News, because the sound is about 5+ decibels higher and more muddier (like trying to mask white noise with some sound dampening scheme). That issue, along with Channel 12's lighting is why I prefer watching Channel 6 (and because I've always been partial to Channel 6 due to Jim Davis [let alone Terry Sams], and how he was an anchor -- gone are the days we got serious news that wasn't some Hollyweird production). The only reason I would watch Channel 12 would be because of Bob Smith. Furthermore, will never forgive them for what they did to Charley Britt (those years with him and Bob, were the years I preferred watching Channel 12, but when Britt was "let go" like that, my only loyalty is with Bob Smith as he's a great weathercaster [and meeting him once at school, and knowing he's a great guy as a person, too]).

What I will always admire

What I will always admire about President Carter is he's not only a PRACTICING Christian, he has deep faith. He never hid it, and when his own denomination does wrong, he's not shy to put his faith ahead of even church politics. Partisans are so much into hate to not see beyond their latest gripe, and often mock God and Christianity at once. Wish they were more practicing religious types, not just the "fair weather" types who talk a good show, but never live by the principles of their faith itself.

To everyone who blames Bush

To everyone who blames Bush from Katrina to the massive earthquake that brought with it the horrific tsunami give it a rest...What you should be worried about is the person sitting in the White House right now who has not one clue as to what being a President entails or even what it means to be a loyal patriot of the United States of America...As far as Carter is concerned he was a, by all accounts, a good Governor but a lousy inept President...Obama, on the other hand, was not even a good Senator but he is now President and by all accounts an even more inept, if possible, President...Oh by the way Good morning...:-)

No, Carter wasn't a bad

No, Carter wasn't a bad president. What happened with Carter is what happens to ALL Democrat presidents since JFK: Dems eat their own party leader for lunch. Ted Kennedy and the flaming Left attacked Carter on everything (as Carter was never a Liberal, he was a Moderate Dem at odds with the radical Left), and in doing so, there was no party unity to do a damn thing. People forget some things, especially even personal bravery of Carter going into that Three Mile Island crisis (he being a nuclear sub commander of the Nimitz Navy, and knowing nuclear reactors more so than any two-bit politician that has come since, with little to no military/science experience). Carter isn't perfect, but the guy isn't evil, either. People need to remember that in their zest to cut others down for political expediency.

Carter was a failed president

Carter was a failed president who initially, when out of office, did a lot of good. Now he is a failed former president too, because he is trying to still do the president's work and thereby undermining every sitting president (Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama) since he left office. Carter needs to go back to Plains and STAY there!

Same can be said of almost

Same can be said of almost all presidents. Reagan had zero experience, and his Administration with rife with scandal (Iran-Contra Affair which is akin to Watergate in that the President violated the law even by defying Congress); Bush Sr making a promise knowing he couldn't keep, making those lips sink his Administration; Clinton with moral lapses; Bush Jr trying to be King, and turning the USA into a Gulag for a false sense of security. So no president in recent memory has been a "good president". Something folks need to remember when playing partisan.

Some just painfully more

Some just painfully more obvious at being a lousy leader than others...Obama has not one ounce of leadership in his whole body except for what Pelosi whispers in his ear...Obama's downfall is that he cannot make a decision on his own...If he did it more than likely would not be the right one as he has been conditioned to say and do what his mentors tell him...

"Liberal = No self

"Liberal = No self accountability" ----- Actually, there's plenty so-called conservatives who have zero self accountability. They don't answer to God (only play lip service), but only to money, and who think anarcho-capitalism is the next best thing since sliced bread. They love making corporations the biggest welfare recipients, too.

Sandy, glad to see our "welfare recipient" corporations have the highest tax rate of any industrialized nation. Maybe, just maybe if congress would adjust the corporate tax rates to comparable rate with the rest of the world, corps wouldn't be leaving the US.
