THIS IS A HEARTFELT rave for Dr. Sunil Lal and the wonderful staff at the Augusta Surgical Center. Thank you for exemplifying professional and courteous characteristics during my procedure. God bless!

TO THE MORON DRIVING the white Ford Taurus on July 28 on Sconyers Way. I saw you throw your Krystal bag of trash out the car window. You are a complete idiot, and frankly are no better then the trash you discarded. I've got your license tag.

AUGUSTA COMMISSION could save the taxpayers a bunch of money with a little thought. Why can't my water and sewer bill be e-mailed to me and others and save the cost of the paper, return envelope, printing, postage and handling?

A RAVE FOR AMERICAN government. It is working exactly as the founding fathers envisioned. Congress fighting to try to work out a deal among competing beliefs in how government should function. Our employees (Congress members) in fear of how the electorate might react to what they do and facing being fired. People actually paying attention to what the idiots in Washington are actually doing.

WHO IS KIDDING WHOM? There is a plan to cut $1 trillion over 10 years; however, the government will spend, this year, over 1.5 trillion beyond what it is going to take in. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out where we are heading.

I'D LIKE TO MAKE a comment about the new bus system that they're bringing to Augusta. I think that's a great idea, and I think that we'll have better bus drivers with better attitudes and treating the public a little better because we've had a lot of complaints and there's a lot of bus drivers with bad attitudes and I think they should have better drivers and better attitudes and treat the customers nicer.

I'D LIKE TO GIVE a big rave to Smith Tire Co. and Smitty's Automotive Service, both on Gordon Highway, for their long-standing great automotive work for the Augusta residents.

AS A TEA PARTY conservative and supporter, I am proud of the tea party representatives in Congress for withstanding and holding true and stopping this foolishness in the White House. I'm proud of them..

THIS IS A RANT for Congress. Both houses. Both parties. All members. Do they not understand American history? We rebelled against the English because of taxation without representation. Can we now rebel against our own Congress because of representation that is irresponsible, inadequate? Please let us know. We are ready to rebel. Can't take too much more.

To the writer of #8- Read the news over the last couple of days? You know, how our creditworthiness has dropped for the first time in history, the stock market has nosedived, 401K's are again decimated, it's having adverse effects world-wide?

You're proud of THAT? Proud of what, exactly? The tea party stopped the foolishness?

Sure, causing a world-wide financial debacle is stopping the foolishness, all right.

Corgimom, BOTH parties are to

Corgimom, BOTH parties are to blame for the major problems you list to include over-spending, no balanced budget, a drop in our creditworthiness and the stock market nosediving. That being said, the democrats failed to come up with a budget when they had full control and have fought the conservatives trying to balance our budgets and cut wasteful spending - as those who assess our creditworthiness state we must do. Additionally, this administration has spent more in 2 years than either Bush or Clinton spent in 8 years and is fighting spending cuts every way possible.

The tea party politicians that were recently elected had NOTHING to do with the out of control spending other than TRYING to get it corrected. They greatly compromised and even 1/2 of them voted for the final compromise which is something even the democrats couldn't due because they don't want cuts...they want more money.

Either way, the Tea Party didn't cause this mess and are the only ones in elected office trying to solve the problem by discussing it openly and making the tough choices which include cutting spending - something that everyone says must be done but no one will actually vote for, except those in the tea party, a few republicans and maybe 2 democrats. So YES, we as Americans of both parties should be proud of their actions to TRY and bring these problems under control as they were elected to do.

This administration is worse than the Carter administration and will go down in history as the worst administration in history.

In Feb 2010 a Democratic

In Feb 2010 a Democratic congress raised the debt ceiling $1.9 trillion.
In Aug 2011 another $2.4 trillion was added until some unknown time in 2013. Come on folks. Are you insane, or what? Our debt is unsustainable. Spending is out of control. ("Taxed Enough Already" -- get it??????????)

If thats's how you run your personal and or business finances, then no wonder you're probably on welfare now.

Yes corgimom, I am proud that

Yes corgimom, I am proud that the TEA Party stood their ground. They attempted to make concessions on raising revenue by closing some tax loopholes but then Obama moved the goal posts by wanting more so they put their foot down and said no. They are the only group of politicians that have gone to Washington and did exactly what the people who elected them wanted done. The Democrats refused to to cut enough to get to the $4 trillion mark the S&P was looking for and the TEA Party representatives refused to raise taxes to get to the $4 trillion mark. So I see the blame as pretty much equal. And I support the approach of the TEA Party. CUT SPENDING. If we can't cut spending to get the debt under control then we are doomed anyway so we might as well tear it down and start over again now. I'll bet that no matter what happens next there will be a lot more scrutiny of all spending legislation. I see this morning that they just found another $50 billion liability in Obamacare that, like Nancy said, nobody knew about until they passed the bill so we cound read it. Eveyone who voted for Obamacare should be tried in court for treason.....or at least dereliction of duty. The Democrats intentionally lied to the American public and the CBO about what was in the bill so that it would be scored at a lower costs than what it actually turned out to be. Somehow that ought to be a criminal offense. Stand your ground TEA Party. You are the first group of politicans that have ANY credibilty in the last 50 years. WIn or lose next year, you have them by the gonads right now so squeeze hard and hold on.

Some how, some way, Obamacare

Some how, some way, Obamacare has to be exposed to daylight, until then the economy will remain unstable.
Truth in government is essential. Schumer can smirk, Obama can tighten his mouth, Pelosi can brag....it will not change a thing.

Just imagine how Jeffs will

Just imagine how Jeffs will be treated in prison. Life plus twenty years of retribution for his victims, just doesn't seem enough, somehow. Then, there is the graveyard of dead babies and children; seems that point has been totally forgotten about. The story doesn't stop with Jeffs. It stops when those little ones are at rest in peace, and that will be when the murderers are caught and punished.

The surgical center staff

The surgical center staff couldn't be nicer but there was no privacy there! You could hear all of the other patients' business being discussed and bodily sounds! I've heard other folks mention this as well, not just here but at other similar centers.
