Politicians who have spent all of their time on giving us health care we didn't want and sending money overseas to wars, y'all are clueless. All anybody cares about is jobs, jobs, jobs. And if y'all are not smart enough to know that by now after two years, y'all are all going to get coughed out in less than eight weeks and we'll see if somebody else can figure out that all anybody cares about is jobs, jobs, jobs.
A big rave and thanks for helping senior citizens, the handicapped and the disabled. We so appreciate you and you have a good heart. Tell it to everyone. Thank you, again.
Duh! Do not take cell phones to school. How hard is that? You want to see how tough it is, mess up and take one in a courtroom. Ha ha.
A rave for Lori Davis for bringing attention to problems in Augusta that have gone ignored for too long. Now there seems to be a serious dialogue forming on how best to deal with Section 8, nuisance properties, blight and curtailing crime. If she can have this much influence as a candidate, I can only imagine what she could accomplish as mayor.
This is a rant regarding Pastor Terry Jones. His plans make me sick to my stomach. He can be in the United States where he and his family are safe and put our soldiers in more danger just so he can sell his book. Heaven does not hold places for reverends who will do anything to make a buck.
To the person who says that taxpayers should not have to pay for someone else's lack of discipline (referring to weight loss surgery) - with that logic then state employees who have emphysema or lung cancer caused by smoking should be denied treatment! Their lack of discipline to quit smoking is costing the taxpayers. What about heart disease in non-obese patients? Is their lack of discipline causing them to continue to eat fatty foods and forsake exercising? Who are you to judge what medical condition is caused simply by a lack of discipline?
RANT! I don't understand why peoples' laundry detergent has to smell worse than the paper mill. I sit on my porch and enjoy the finally cool air and get hit in the face with cheap detergent. Spend a little extra $ and we won't have this problem.
I haven't been able to stop laughing since the recent rant and then rave about DUI/breathalyzers. Do you guys really want someone else to GIVE a breathalyzer so YOU can know how much you've drunk? News flash: You are responsible for your actions, not someone else, not the bar owner and not the police. As for the police - catch every one of the drunks and maybe my tax can be reduced.
