Note to the member of the "moocher class" who doesn't understand the outrage of the Tea Party movement. We won't opt out of our Medicare entitlements because we bought and paid for them with a lifetime of hard work and contributions from our paychecks. If it wasn't for the mostly white, old people that make up most of the Tea Party, people like you would not be able to sit on your duff, collect money for work you never did.

Since the Richmond County Board of Education Transportation Department doesn't seem able to control its bus drivers, who can? I've complained too many times to count about a bus on Highway 56. This morning he held up four lanes of traffic to wait for one lazy, self-centered high school girl to come out of the house and leisurely stroll down the driveway while on her cell phone to get to the bus. Why did he wait? She should have been there waiting for him. That's not the worst of it. This morning, as is the case most mornings, another bus passed me on Highway 56. I was going almost 65. The speed limit is 55.

Regent Felton Jenkins says we must reorganize the MCG system. Then he says, "Maybe there were personality conflicts." Personality conflicts aren't caused by the system. They're caused by different personalities. What the heck is going on with all this sudden "we've gotta change everything" stuff? Somebody's playing a game. And when somebody's playing a big-money game, is somebody just looking for more dictatorial power?

Meth labs seem to be popping up everywhere and simply go ignored - that is until a pawnshop owner is murdered by the druggies. Why does someone have to be killed in cold blood for authorities to take action?

Dieway 56 needs to be fixed now! If the permanent solution (widening) cannot happen for several more years, at least some temporary fixes could be done in the meantime. Deceleration lanes (right turn lanes) could be added for all intersections; flashing overhead lights (or even actual traffic signals) could be added at accident-prone intersections; warning signs could be added to warn drivers to prepare to stop for traffic ahead of them making turns.

All of the RAVES extolling the wonderful job Obama and the progressive liberals are doing in D.C. are concrete examples of the fact that we as educators have failed miserably to teach critical thinking skills.

I am a teacher. With the lack of a step increase and the furlough days, I made less this year than last year. Yet I paid more federal taxes this year than last year. Tell me again how Obama is helping the little people. I still haven't figured that out.

Top papers circulation

Top papers circulation drops...Daily circulation fell 8.7%.. AJC dropped 24.7 % The Wall St. Journal gained because they charge for online reading & count that as part of circulation.

Zeno is a free man...no other is Zeno...I exist here and there, but no where else...but where are we? Is this real, or is it a cheap imitation? That's the paradox of life...

I can verify and confirm that

I can verify and confirm that accounts have been suspended for no removed posts. I can also confirm and testify that a certain whiny minority poster was still able to post after 200+ removals. You can connect those dots.....

Just pick a number

Aye commends MR Sean Moores

Aye commends MR Sean Moores of the AC staff. It is so nice to have the ability to exchange comments and opinions with the staff, instead of the heavy handed admin of the past.
This praise is for Sean only, the rest of them aren't worth extinguishing by urination.

seenitB4 - Let me take it one

seenitB4 - Let me take it one step further, I'd forgotten the low end on number of warnings. Somebody had 2 accounts removed before making/attempting to make a single post. Like I said, get a Dungeons & Dragons die and roll it and pick a number between zero and 250.

Aye wonders if RIP was PTHS and has a STD for which he needs TLC.

Hey, I have offered to re-post their stuff to "remind" them of their own words. So far there have been no takers. I still read them and laugh at the hypocrisy.

This is interesting

This is interesting considering the demographics of the major metro areas in Michigan:

Michigan voters won't definitely know the gubernatorial candidates of the two major parties until their August 3 primaries, but for now the Republican has a slight edge. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Michigan finds an unnamed generic Republican candidate for governor picking up 41% of the vote, while an unnamed generic Democratic candidate earns 36% support.
