MY SINCERE THANKS to the drivers who pulled over to the side of the road in respect for Tom Stafford's funeral procession on Wrightsboro Rd. That respect was an honor for a real American Hero from the Vietnam War. A real man among men.

THE REV. OTIS MOSS exclaims from the pulpit that "America has been a part of the misery in Haiti." Just this morning, a national news program reported that the U.S. Army has been on 14 humanitarian aid missions to Haiti since 2005. And that's just the Army. I would be interested in knowing what Rev. Moss' huge wealthy church has done (and is doing) for the folks in Haiti. I would also tell Rev. Moss this: Don't use the pulpit to blast your country; use it in the way a true man of God would -- to pray for your country.

WHO IS SUPPOSED to run the US government? The people -- through their elected officials in Congress and the White House. So who is meeting with those two groups, in secret, to complete the Obama health care hoax? Union officials. Did anybody elect them?

THE AIKEN SCHOOL BOARD is talking about spending up to $222 million to "improve the most dilapidated facilities." For $222 million you can build several small towns from scratch. Meanwhile, who allowed school buildings to get dilapidated in the first place, if not school boards?

A HUGE RAVE to Highland Avenue Animal Hospital. I recently had my best friend of 17 years put to sleep. They treated my cat with such dignity and respect that I will forever have a place in my heart for them. They took an already unbearable situation and made it tolerable.

WE'RE IN A TREACHEROUS recession, and governments are broke. And now Georgia pols want to spend more. But not to worry. They want to give us a choice between statewide taxes or taxing in individual counties. Isn't that called a "Hobson's choice?" You get more than one choice, and all are lousy.

PERDUE SAYS he favors building roads. One day he makes a speech about how we're spending too much; the next day he wants to spend more.

BUSH AND OBAMA forced banks to take federal loans the banks didn't want to make. Later the banks paid back the money with interest. And now Obama says that's not good enough. He wants to charge the banks new taxes -- which he calls fees.

NOW IS THE SEASON to plant more evergreen trees and shrubs in downtown neighborhoods. This is the only way Augusta can reclaim the "Garden City" title.

Ispy (Austen Jr.) the major

Ispy (Austen Jr.) the major problem here is we were promised no more lobbyist and major Trans Parency. Both have yet to be fulfilled. Pharmecutical,SEIU, Labor Unions, Acorn, AMA, all have a lot of influence on a major piece of legislation affecting the American people and our future. It should all be open and available to any one who wishes to see the details...

Bask in the love, Irish, bask in the love. Aside from hearing "We need to talk", the next thing that men hate is "I want to spend the whole day with you"

She refuses to play but loves

She refuses to play but loves to accessorize the little golf outfits. I bought her a set of clubs for valentines day several years back. Big Mistake, It's roses , candy, wine and dinner from now on and maybe just a little bauble. (anyone want to purchase an unused set of ladies golf clubs, still in the plastic wrappers, cheap ?)

"I bought her a set of clubs

"I bought her a set of clubs for valentines day several years back." My ex- notice the EX- bought me a toilet seat for Christmas one year. To show the depths of his love, he made sure it was padded. My son said, "Daddy, I don't think that was a good idea" as I was frothing at the mouth. Irish, you were lucky she didn't take one of the clubs and bash you in the head with it.

Hardly friends. But I do acknowledge intelligent comments. What I don't understand Holly, is if you dislike him so much, why are you constantly commenting to and about him, setting yourself up for even more attacks. Is negative attention better than no attention?

Just like him, I respond to

Just like him, I respond to his post that I do not agree with, and that demean and bully others. His attacks do not bother me, for I can come right back. I don't stick my tail between my legs and slink away. And fishman, I respond to 'deep knive' remarks. You have no clue what you're talking about. I don't care about others taking me seriously Lance, YOU know what I'm talking about, and YOU know I have your number. Stop acting dizzy. The others do too, they just don't want to rock YOUR boat.
