THIS IS A RANT for Aiken County trying to blame MCG for the escaped prisoner. He was never in custody because if Aiken County had charged him then it would have been responsible for his hospital bills, so Aiken County chose not to charge him to avoid having to pay the hospital bill. When he's not in custody, there's no reason for MCG to treat him any differently than any other patient in the hospital.

GAY PEOPLE are good people, too. My uncle (mother's brother) was gay. He served in the Army and retired as a bus driver. He also has raised eight of my mother's children. I was a baby girl when my mother died, and he kept and raised all of us. I was very young, but I understood. We are all God's children.

THIS IS A RANT about Commissioner Betty Beard. I am not so surprised that she would think that all of this trouble surrounding her dilapidated childhood home is somehow politically and racially motivated. She states "that about 90 percent of the homes in the Bethlehem community are also in disrepair and why should she be singled out as a slumlord." Well, Ms. Beard, you are in a position of authority in the city and you of all people should know that you are responsible for the upkeep of your property.

I WOULDN'T TAKE my 10- and 12-year-old children to a strip joint. But after taken them to the Augusta Mall over the weekend that's exactly what it felt like. If mall management can't enforce some basic decency and decorum, then this family will take its business elsewhere.

'COLUMBIA COUNTY may change grading,' a headline says. The powers that be there seem to think nobody knows what "flunk" means, so they'll change it to "does not meet standards," a sick euphemism if there ever was one. Soon, a grade from a public school will be meaningless.

RICHMOND COUNTY politicians continue to tax and then spend millions on "planning" for absurd projects that never get completed anyway. Who's making all the money? Companies that plan.

SPEAKING OF HIS medical care plans, Obama said we should "beware of scare tactics and fear-mongering." In the same speech, he says we need to change the present system so fast because it is "a ticking bomb."

IT'S GREAT TO HEAR good things about our president. I voted for him, and I am proud to stand by my choice.

Ignore the voices rose. You

Ignore the voices rose. You just hang in there and keep those aluminum hats handy... I CAN'T FOR THE LIFE OF ME FIGURE OUT WHO YOU ARE ALWAYS ARGUING WITH. no one mentions you and you come on here like a banshee...By the way I like to sit around and drink cans of genessee cream ale or just Genny ale as we call it...I'm so wrought with bad habits and sinful ways you can threaten me with anything and I don't give a hoot....I go to confession so often they have a special booth just for me...I hate it when the priest says "YOU AGAIN"....I know a great exorcist by the way if you're free next week......

Rose keeps telling people she will not be bossed by them. But then she dishes out bossing to other left and right. The hypocrisy, the hypocrisy of it all, to alter a great movie line.

What poetic Irony. Howdie

What poetic Irony. Howdie Doodie sent the Destroyer "John S McCain" to handle the N. Korean crisis. Isn't it a shame america didn't have the same good judgement last november...The Inspector General Waldon was fired for having an incoherent moment. Heck fire...they better get rid of robert Gibbs before tomorrow...Will Howdie Doodie quit if the teleprompter in charge breaks ?

BTW folks, you want to be real careful what you say to Rose, she gets people banned for posting her real name on here, even though it's public record, yet the AC does nothing to her for exposing other poster's real name.

Let's tally the votes... Rose

Let's tally the votes... Rose is incapable of voicing a comment unless RCR, Willi, etc., are here to back her play. Duh, if you can't stand up for yourself, and your opinions, you can't stand. O hasn't done a dam thing to my life, but my kids & grandkids might (will) have something to pay for. Let them remember the messiah, the O, the "black" President in the White House. Is it still the "White" house? Uh, yes it is, he is 50% white. It's the other 50% (Arab/Muslim) that has me worried.

Casey, I'll never fill PTHS's shoes, won't even try. He served, I served, but that's about it, other than that, we think alike. When PTHS posts, I'll read it & usually agree, but occassionally don't.

KK - Yes you have, but not

KK - Yes you have, but not under any of the display names Rose keeps accusing of being PTHS. She is batting 1.000 on incorrect guesses. It's quite amusing though. We should make T-Shirts like "Mickey Mouse Club". Since we are all the same person, the least we can do to help out the mentally challenged is dress alike for easy ID.
