I think the payment of surgeries for overweight people is terrible! I am overweight myself and as hard as I try, I can't seem to keep the extra weight off but I sure don't feel like someone should pay for surgery as there is always a risk with such surgeries which do not always work. Or are these surgeries supposed to be a way to study the harmful effects by people foolish enough to risk their lives getting cut into?

The city accepted federal monies for new streetlights adding to our national debt. The cities and states should refuse federal dollars. if they want new street lights the city should pay for them. My federal tax dollars should not be used for dumb street lights.

ASU is the tax supported college that denies rights to Christian students. But what does ASU favor? The first week of school includes: rides, games, food, bingo, fireworks, golf, "to gear up students." ASU uses absurdity to "welcome" students, but does not welcome Christians. Christians, beware! Don't get near ASU. They might give you some golf or bingo.

Thank you Lewiston Elemetary for locking the doors and making the parents stand in the rain, thunder and lightning before parent orientation. We really got a good idea of how much value you place on our lives and the lives of our children!

If local school officials had brains they'd know that accepting even one federal grant means they are ceding legitimate local authority to the federal government. This is both unconstitutional and supremely dumb.

Sylvia Cooper is a great communicator and gives me a good laugh every time I read her comments.

If you have a potbelly and don't use deodorant, then please don't wear a tank top out to a restaurant. You are just telling everyone that you are a slob. If you can't dress properly then eat at home or go to the drive thru.

Another rave for Dr. Frank Moreland and all those in his practice and office. They treated our fragile rescued cat with sensitivity and excellent care, upholding humane ethics to the highest degree. Our simple, but very lovable, gray tabby cat was given the best of veterinary service, even to the very end.

The government (all levels) made a big secrecy deal out of what was being dug up at Ft. Lawton/Magnolia Springs State Park at Millen. Now the GA Southern website reveals the big secrets. That's it?! A pipe? A cut bullet?! Why such secrecy? What idiots govt produces!

I like most Americans agree with the president concerning religious freedom. But, common sense should question promoting a mosque to be built near Ground Zero. Not only is this a slap in the face and insult to all impacted by the terrorist attack of 911, but also is another example of Muslims attempting to subjugate all non-believers (infidels).

People that want to move to North Augusta, come on over. The mosquitoes are very hungry. Almost no money is being spent on mosquito spray. Come on over.

Maybe one day we'll read a Rave about how some animal that Dr. Moreland treated actually survived. I'm sure he is a very compassionate and competent veterinarian, but so far all we are hearing about is the lost causes.

I wonder if the home

I wonder if the home invasion/shooting at Judge Carlisle Overstreet's house that happened about 4am this morning is going to be another "taboo topic" for the AC since they haven't even published at "tip off" breaking news story on it.

In reference to the Civil War

In reference to the Civil War artifacts found at Magnolia Springs State Park, why are they being sent to Statesboro and not housed and displayed in Millen where they were found? Jenkins County could use the tourism that this could bring. Why do these people at GA Southern think they own them? Display them in Millen and help the economy there. Lord knows, they need it!

At least the sentence he handed out this morning can't be reversed later if he has a change of heart like he has had so many times in the past.

Remember what part of Manhatten that is. The Jewish bankers and financiers might not like that either.....and they have many lawyers and the ability to buy you out (by force if necessary).

I don't know about shootings,

I don't know about shootings, but I do know that many newspapers disable the comments section when an article is about a pending or active trial. They keep the comments disabled until the jury comes to a verdict and the judge passes a sentence. They say this is done in order not to 'taint' the trail with public opinion. maybe its the same thing with other 'legal matters.'

Good Morning America, My Friends and Foes.

Don't you all realize that AC is doing it's part to "Clean Up" Cherry Tree Crossing. By leaving it along by all parties concerned, It will clean itself up by becoming unpopulated.

How about a headline for the

How about a headline for the massive gas line break on Windsor Springs late yesterday. According to my wife, there was a huge traffic jam and 5 police cruisers sat and watched the fiasco and did nothing to alleviate the problem. BTW the work is being performed by a work force totally comprised of illegal aliens so it dosen't surprise me that accidents will happen.

Yeah, it'll get done early, there won't be three hour breaks, and out of work Americans will drive by and say "Man, glad I don't have to THAT kind of work."

I didn't bother to go out and

I didn't bother to go out and ask the Hispanics working diligently (look it up if you're American) if they had green cards. I appreciated their work ethic, their professional attire, and the fact they left my yard looking EXACTLY as they found it before digging.

I'll hire Hispanics over Americans, Asians over Americans, Arabs over Americans, hell, ANY immigrant over an American, EVERYDAY.
