THAT IS SO ridiculous for people to get all upset over this holiday period and what to say about it. There's no love or general nice greetings in you folks who claim to be Christian? As for the idea of pushing one particular religion in our public schools to supposedly better people: I see the churches and parents are not doing such a hot job, so what makes you think trying to push it during school hours will cure a lot of the crimes?

HAS MAYOR Deke Copenhaver ever visited with the local Muslim or Buddhist places of worship? When I try to follow the news about his prayer meetings, I don't see such mention, but then I'm not based in Augusta anymore.

OBAMA SAYS HE is "still wrestling with whether gay couples should have the right to marry ..." What arrogance! Who should marry is not up to Obama, or any president, or even to all of mankind. Marriage was invented by God, not Obama.

ONLY VP BIDEN could be so insulting to Jesus that he, Biden, praises gayness in a Christmas Eve interview.

AP FRONT PAGE mentions that Bethlehem is the "traditional birthplace of Jesus," and that the Church of the Nativity there is "believed by Christians to be the birthplace of Jesus." Thus, AP carefully hints that being "traditional" could mean Jesus' birth in Bethlehem is not factual. Grow up, media! Believe it or not, Jesus is watching!

ABOUT NOVEMBER'S elections, outgoing South Carolina Attorney General McMaster says, "You never know what the voters are looking for." If he doesn't know something so obvious, he needs to be outgoing.

The rabidly left-wing public TV/radio system claims this addition of the UGA TV station to their marxist, brainwashing outfit will be "commercial." It'll be interesting to see how a commercial network can make a profit for a group whose goal is to kill profits for businesses.

SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN Obama made a Christmas Eve statement in an interview. He kept calling Christmas the "holidays." Is Obama so anti-Christian that he fears even saying the word 'Christ'?

I SEE PAINE COLLEGE is also trying to close a major portion of a street that connects to three other main roads. Can you not think of at least studying and then testing pedestrian lights? What is it about college students, whether MCG or Paine College ones, who seem to have so much difficulty in crossing busy streets without some main help from other adults in costly and often ridiculous road closures?

SO YOU THINK YOUR JOB IS

SO YOU THINK YOUR JOB IS SAFE---think again..

Dekalb county may outsource 700 jobs next year....The school system is looking at privatizing custodians & maintenance jobs....including ground keeping-painting-window glazing-heating & air conditioning-equipment repair & pest control. They are facing a $50 million shortfall in next year's budget......
Just a little suggestion from me.....why not charge ALL illegals for schooling their kids....when they pay 0 school taxes because most don't pay for a mortgage & many group in the same house...I have seen buses unload so I can say this first hand------or let's keep playing blind man & watch this country go down the tubes...

The South: The iced tea is

The South:
The iced tea is always sweet and the refills are always free. Macaroni and cheese is a vegetable. Pecan Pie is a staple. Porches are wide and words are long. Summer starts in April. Y'all is the most commonly used proper noun. Everything is Darlin'. People's hearts are always being blessed.

Jackson, Happy New Year to

Jackson, Happy New Year to you and the family. Love the 2:20pm post and you got it absolutely right on the 2:25pm post!

daninicole "All these so-called Christians don't seem to have celebrated Christ at all because they spent the entire time complaining about everything!"

Well how do you know all the comments were made by Christians. Just because someone says they are a Christian doesn't necessarily mean they are (good example in my opinion is our President). And if Christians made the comment....what are we not allowed to complain now? I guess you are one that expects Christians to all cower down, keep their mouths shut, never speak out against anything we are taught is wrong, let anyone and everyone just walk all over us...sorry but that's a "door mat" and I don't care for the dirt you leave behind.

Happy New Year and May God Bless His Children!

My goodness people, The

My goodness people,
The President, as well as anyone else, has the right to wish people Happy Holidays. Even in the Christian calendar, there are more holidays in December and January than just Christmas Day. Do your research, read your Bible, and open your heart to love and get rid of the bitterness.
And, true, Obama did not invent marriage, God did. God also advocates love, acceptance, and compassion. Humans created hatred, bigotry, and hypocracy. If two people love each other, they should be able to marry each other. Look at all of the straight people who marry for other reasons. And why is it that there is a divorce rate of over 50%? Seems like straights don't have it right.
