WE WILL REMEMBER come November (2010 and 2012).

THE ELECTION of a conservative politician, David Cameron, in Great Britain is a very bad omen hanging over Obama's head. Margaret Thatcher got elected in 1979 just before Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980. Watch this administration shift into hyper-drive to complete its agenda before November.

OBAMA NOMINATED Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. She is known as a fan of Obama who has called him a "rock star." Is Obama surrounding himself with such fans? Sounds like the way egotistical kings used to act. Do you want a president of a free country or a king of a country that has no freedoms?

SOME AMERICANS have become so used to entitlement money from government, they'll sit on their backsides and collect various government checks rather than work. Cut off the welfare and the illegal immigrants won't have jobs to sneak in for.

GEORGIA'S TAX REVENUE fell in April. Now let's see if those in the Capitol have figured out that if they simply spend less, cut programs, etc., there'll still be plenty of revenue. Of course, state politicians have already sold off a lot of Georgia's sovereignty to the federal government in exchange for half this year's budget.

GEORGIA ATTORNEY GENERAL Thurbert Baker says as governor he'll "create 100,000 jobs." Government has never created productive or lasting jobs; yet this genius claims he'll be the first to pull off the impossible. This is enough to let the public know this guy's the wrong guy.

THE UNITED STATES has 71 million unused doses of swine flu vaccine. That's because Americans have learned we cannot trust the federal government, and the FDA is the federal government, with all its shrieking warnings to set up a phony crisis for Obama to use to get his unconstitutional health care bill passed.

THE PUBLIC SWIMMING pools should remain open all season, at no cost, no matter what the cost. Young children need to learn how to swim. Keeping the pools open will save lives one day. It is just as important to keep the pools open as to have CPR classes.

DR. BEDDEN, please, before you go to Texas modernize the high school exam schedule as other counties have. Let students take two exams in the morning, then go home. Teachers can then complete those grades by that afternoon. It is more efficient and practical and would lead to a peaceful ending of the school year. Students do not need to be in school all day to just take two exams.

The CBO announced that the

The CBO announced that the discretionary spending could add another $115 billion-plus to the 10-year cost of health-care overhaul, the Congressional Budget Office said yesterday. There was not enough time to estimate this due to the rush to pass the bill. This great bill, not read before passage, supported by most democrats and persued greatly by Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Frank has been yet another major fraud by this administration. Look, both parties have problems, most politicians lie, the Republicans could have done far better when they were in charge, etc. but NOTHING compares to the ridiculous spending and entitlement programs being created by this administration. No one in their right mind can defend the actions of this administration regarding their spending - it is plain pathetic and harmful for America and our future.

To the best of my knowledge,

To the best of my knowledge, our constitution does not guarantee us the right to free public pools. Where do the entitlements end? Public pools with nominal user fees may be ok although frankly I don't believe we should be in the pool business when we don't even have money for public safety and education. The poster does bring further to light just how some feel that the government (which has no money at all except what it receives in taxes from the 50% of Americans who pay them)should be providing everything for them.

A RAVE to the quality of the submissions to the R&R's today. While I do not agree with them all, they are well-written and clearly illustrate the writers' opinions. What a refreshing change!

Obama / Kagan - OK what

Obama / Kagan - OK what nominees haven't come from the nominating President's fan base?

Swine Flu - invested by Obama - sure just like Gore invented the Internet. Swine Flu has been around since the early 1900's. Admittedly I looked it up as I thought some smarty in the CDC was making reference to "When Pigs Fly" after Obama was elected President.

Public swimming pools and free - no thanks! Sure I would like to see more public pools in the area but I see no harm in charging a nominal fee for use to at least pay for the salaries of those who must maintain it and provide lifeguard services. Plenty of areas have them and charge $ 2 - 3 for single day use but then offer weekly, monthly or season passes as well.

Have a great day everyone!

Good Morning America, Patriot

Good Morning America, Patriot Fighting Personnel, Veterans and all True Americans.

Don't you all feel good to wake up and read all the discussion issues being posted today. Makes you real proud, secure and happy to be an American to know that this great nation is headed for total destruction or a revolution like none before.

Thanks Rant 4 for given a perfect example of "Condition Reflex."

I also feel better now knowing that we have a "Rock Star" for a president.

There is a pool open all year

There is a pool open all year it's called the Family Y. They offer swim classes and CPR. It's not free so I doubt if you would go because you would have to pay for it. Since your post say's you want a "pool open all season, at no cost, no matter what the cost." Some one has to pay for it. Get a Y membership and then you can swim any time of the year.

THE PUBLIC seafood buffet

THE PUBLIC seafood buffet should remain open all season, at no cost, no matter what the cost. Young children have to eat. Keeping the buffet open will save lives one day. It is just as important to keep the buffet open as to have dieting classes.

Elena Kagan calls Obama a "rock star"? Isn't that a slang term for a crack user? Being how Obama has admitted to having inhaled marijuana and snorting cocaine on 60 Minutes I guess her assessment of him is appropriate.....

Swimming pool rant: Do you

Swimming pool rant: Do you have any idea how many ponds, lakes and streams that there are available in this area? Some places are free the others have a very nominal fee. Take kids there and teach them to swim and don't demand that others foot the bill for the upkeep of the pool.
