This is not the time to try a $75,000-per-year experiment that would have an insignificant effect on dropout rates! Laney High School's dropout rate can only be decreased if the parents take on the responsibility that they are now passing on to the teachers and others. It's up to the parents to demand high standards from their children (and teachers) and they should expect nothing less.

The Georgia Supreme Court postponed the execution of a triple murderer because the man attempted suicide. His lawyer claims he is too nuts to be executed. If a court is stupid enough to fall for that, everybody on death row will immediately pretend to try to commit suicide; then all will NOT be executed by a court that claims you can't execute a nut case, while the phony nut cases will laugh all the way out of death row.

Speaking of Obama's golf swing, if his swing is as awkward as is shown on TV, he is an awful golfer. If he's claiming decent scores, with THAT swing, he's lying about golf, too.

Our many thanks to a wonderful lady who stopped on Evans to Locks Road last Friday to rescue our new little puppy who had sneaked out of the fenced yard. You were so thoughtful to take the time to be sure she was safe. Spicy Girl says "many thanks!"

Property owners cannot prevent tenants from not paying their water bills. Lori Davis, who is running for mayor, should know that property owners cannot be responsible for tenants not paying their bills.

This is a rant for the person that has their own street that I happen to drive on my way to Augusta State University. How did you get your own street?

There is always one thing that makes a Republican look real good. A Democrat.

Somebody told me that to be in "The Tea Party," you must be at least 50 years old and have Rush Limbaugh programmed on your radio ...

When them psychiatrists get through with you, you not only look like a gooney , you act like a gooney , too.

This is a rant for the procurement office. It needs a new director. They should have investigated the license problem with the people that wanted to operate The Patch. It's time to get a new officer.

I visit your fair city quite often. ... It appears as though you don't have a speed limit. Every time I come over there's people passing me like I'm sitting still. I can be going 80 mph, it doesn't matter. Whether I'm on 520 or whether I'm on one of the regular roads it's just like there's no speed limit over there.

George, whatever she is

George, whatever she is asserting, don't bother replying. There is no winner when arguing with her. We know how we feel about Ms. Saigon, and that's all that matters. Her apology really doesn't mean much, after watching the videos of her cavorting with the enemy!

"Sorry Happy, No Veteran or POW I know would lie about these things."

Hmm. John McCain was called a liar during the Presidential campaign because of what he said about being a POW.

And people got all bent out of shape because he owned 7 houses. Remember that?

What matters is the house he lived in for 5 years- the Hanoi Hilton- and everything that man has, he deserves and then some.

It is downright funny that CG

It is downright funny that CG posts a blurb- written by someone he doesn't know and will never know- as the truth; but he is positive that Snopes isn't true.

When you read statements like this "I have recently discovered that Snopes.com is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. " that tells you right there it's a bunch of BS.

I don't need to go to

I don't need to go to TruthorFiction to find out about Jane Fonda. I took the time to watch the 20/20 interview and to read her autobiography.

I also saw her and that horrible ex-husband of hers, Tom Hayden, speak at San Diego State. I made a point of going- I wanted to judge for myself, not rely on what someone else thought.

She puts the H in hypocrite. She'd say anything to help her career.

Jane Fonda was a traitor. I

Jane Fonda was a traitor. I think she should have been punished. She wasn't, because she did not give away government secrets.The only thing I like about her is she was a good actress.

This is something to think about... Forgiveness and bitterness.Without the first, you'll limp through life with the second.

So Sarge can read my mind. WOW! He does not know diddly squat about how I feel. I will never allow anyone to do my thinking for me, and some people can't handle that fact.

Jane Fonda claimed a few

Jane Fonda claimed a few years ago that she has found God, that was her reason for leaving Ted Turner. She couldn't live with him and live for God. I don't know if she was sincere or even if it would make it easier to forgive her, but certainly it would not excuse her or mean that we would forget.

I heard about Traitor Jane as

I heard about Traitor Jane as a child. I remember my father talking about her and this was long before the internet, chain mail and snopes.com. I don't know exactly what happened because I was not there, but one thing that is blatantly clear... the woman is a traitor to her country and a heartless (bleep) to boot. She had a grand opportunity to do so much good and instead caused so much harm.

"I will never allow anyone to do my thinking for me, and some people can't handle that fact."

Not true. We are all aware that Happy does her own thinking, 24/7. I'm ok with that, even when I can't understand what she is thinking.

"I don't know exactly what happened because I was not there"

Oh, there are a lot of us on here that remember. We will always remember. That terrible picture of her straddling the anti-aircraft gun that was used to kill Americans- we will never forget.
