Obama is the greatest president ever because he overcame discrimination to be our first black commander-in-chief. Oil spills, high unemployment and deficit spending cannot overshadow his win in '08. Rank him with Mandela, King and Douglass. Thank God we have someone caring for us blacks and the poor. We will have two cars in every driveway and a turkey on the table, finally! Thank you, Mr. Obama!

It makes no sense at all that MCG would send an overdue notice for a bill without doing its research. The recipient is still permanently disabled, not yet approved for disability and without a job due to disability. He hasn't even been out of the hospital for two months. Do they think he won the lottery in that short time? The bill is for $998,000. Yet we were assured it was paid by their private charity. Apparently not! I guess those funds are needed to pay the new president.

Headline: "2 American tourists kidnapped in Yemen." Sad, of course, but what kind of nitwit chooses to be a tourist in Yemen?

This is a rave for the gentleman that opened the door for my wife yesterday at J.C. Penny's. We appreciate it and thank you.

I have a rant for the board that gave those guys at the utility department their jobs back after they were caught stealing pay for time they didn't work, then gave them back pay to boot. I guess dishonesty does pay. They all should have been fired.

To Dr. Wayne Frazier, principal of Glenn Hills: Sir, I respect you as a leader, but I would like to ask you two questions. If you were sober, why didn't you take the breathalyzer test? If you were sober why didn't you take a blood test? By refusing both tests to prove your innocence, you sort of look guilty to me. I wish you the best of luck in this case.

The Columbia County Board of Education needs to listen to the teachers and stop the harassment that is happening in the elementary schools.

I've been living in my home off Meadowbrook Drive for over 30 years, and in the last five years things have really started going downhill. There is a drug house on my street with customers coming and going at all hours of the night and with gang members out on the street acting as sentinels. Everyone knows what is going on at that home, including the police, but they can't seem to do anything about it. No surprise it's a rental property and the landlord won't return any of my phone calls about what's going on.

It's 420 in Rio and Tokyo
"It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things:
freedom of speech,
freedom of conscience,
and the prudence never to practice either of them."

--Mark Twain

Ditto what Trey said on the first ranter...some KIND of ganja....
That paper the patient or rep signed that says they agree to be held responsible is all the accounting dept is concerned about...oh, you thought that people who work at hospitals care about you...uh-uh, it's the insurance ka-ching!
What kind of nitwit vacations in Yemen?...same kind who posts a comment about it....
You're welcome...(I always hold the door for someone else)...

"The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be."

Now if only I had a dream job w the city..I could screw off, help a friend cheat the boss, and then after being suspended I could get all my back pay and go back to work...Dream job w the city...no wonder they all stand around at the work sites....no one will fire them...lazy goofs.
If anyone else mentions Dr Frazier for super job I'm gonna spit...I'd rather have another segment in the Peyton Place saga...Frazier didn't take the tests to prove his innocence cuz he knew he was guilty...
Public schools subject the employees to laws only applicable to public education...go work at a private school if you don't like working for the taxpayer.
The landlord probably gets a kick back...legalize pot and a lot of gang activity will cease..no funds to operate...run off the crack heads and those dealers and round up the guns...raze the drug houses to the ground and send the landlord the bill...I bet that might send the message...
That's all ya got? Got Feat? Got me some...cuz there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues...before I have another teenage nervous breakdown and while I'm waiting for Columbus, just don't bogart that joint my friend, pass it over to me...and I'll put on my Sailin' Shoes...woot!
BP...PLUG THE DAMN HOLE FOR CHRIST"S SAKE ALREADY...I'll never eat seafood again....damn you BP...I hope you pull it out soon so we can save some of the gulf....call Boots n Coots, Red Adair, but get someone on it yesterday...what will we do with all those lost jobs?
God loves us all...except BP right now...G'day.

"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."

Trey, I don't think it's a baggie, I think it is a glass pitcher of red liquid, with a smiley face on it. Either that, or they have been visiting the house on Meadowbrook Drive.

Here is your Daily Tarot Card

Here is your Daily Tarot Card for Thursday, May 27

"The Knight of Swords card suggests that my power today lies in change. I am quick, sharp, and ready for assertive, revolutionary or affirmative action. I overcome obstacles or resolve conflict by getting right to the point, cutting to the chase or confronting challenges head on -- even if this means going against the grain. My communication, style or expectation is on the cutting edge and relies on reason, design, the latest craze or facts. It is my honor to protect and defend my perception of truth. I measure twice and cut once. I am empowered by expectation or duty and my virtue is commitment to the greater good."
These cards are such a hoot...just had to share the ambiguity of it all..notice the contradictions throughout...implication is that anything at all can happen...what a predictive resource...LOL.

Apologies for the "dupe" on

Apologies for the "dupe" on my 5:45 AM. I was not aware (until a few mins ago) that it was hashed out yesterday. I had not reviewed what transpired in R&R after I went off for my beauty sleep. I be catched up now.

No offense to anyone but for

No offense to anyone but for the 1st rave about the 1st black president...he is only president because just about every black citizen that was able to vote voted for him because he was black. I have nothing against it but IMO he was voted in due to all blacks hyped up about a black canidate running for presidency. I'm willing to bet my turkey that not half of them knew or understood what he was offering to bring to the table once in office.

OICUB12 - I agree with you.

OICUB12 - I agree with you. My position has always been that anyone that voted for, and still supports, Obama for any reason other than skin color is an idiot. I understand, and accept, why folks who share his skin pigment support him and have no problem at all with it. His election was certainly a historical milestone.

After trying to explain to

After trying to explain to students over and over that you vote for a person based on their campaign position it was still very obvious that their support was based on skin color. Many could not tell you why they would vote for Obama. They had no clue what issues he supported. I wonder what would happen if we have two black candidates.

scoobynews - With someone like Obama who lacks ANY integrity or love for America, it really doesn't matter what his announced positions or promises were as a candidate. He is the poster child for "empty words".

Didn't anybody tell you that they voted for him because Sarah Palin was his running mate.
