A BIG RAVE for Dr. Azizz’s article about our giant medical establishment. Since my first experience in 1943 for an appendectomy I have had several in-patient experiences along with 30 years close to the medical field. So my last wish is to donate my body to the medical school knowing it will help some future doctor in their training to be the best. However at 84 I’m not ready yet.

THE U.S. GIVES $1.3 billion in “aid” to Egypt and apparently will continue to, even though every possible winner in the latest insurrection will end up being controlled by maniacs who are staunchly anti-American and anti-Israel.

I HOPE WHOEVER keyed my new orange Avalanche has a happy New Year.

IT WAS NICE THAT you had coverage of the all-area cross-country stars in your sports section but why was there a difference in the coverage between the male and female stars? The male was on the front page and the female was on Page 5.

I WAS WONDERING where the Obama slogan “Yes We Can” went when I discovered Iran is now using it as they thumb up their noses at the world and proclaim “Yes We Can” to nuclear programs, disrupting traffic through the Strait of Hormuz, etc.

WHERE ARE ALL the civic leaders and ministers protesting against the killing of two of our best law enforcement officers? If it was the other outcome, they would be all over the place. Makes you wonder!

YOUR PAPER REPORTED hundreds of Sunni Muslims gathered in Baghdad on Friday to celebrate the withdrawal of U.S. forces. What gratitude! Was it worth it having our troops killed and many thousands injured for the Iraqi cause?

DR. AZZIZ just loves to get visibility. In your newspaper on Saturday you had news coverage about his surgery and he also was a guest columnist with a topic on how great GHSU is. Enough is enough!

THE KWANZAA article contains some sadly socialist buzz words, e.g., “collective responsibility” and “cooperative economics.” It also mentions “faith,” but omits what it has “faith” in.

HAS ANYONE noticed that since “diversity” became a popular leftist/politically correct buzzword, the most dangerous places in the U.S. are the most diverse? Happy New Year!

Diversity is the biggest and

Diversity is the biggest and most effective example of propaganda: A lie that is universally repeated and becomes 'fact.' The US was emphatically NOT built by diversity in any form. It was a homogenous cultural construct of what the liberals have spent decades deconstructing and reviling, generally referred to as the WASP mentality. As for the input of various cultures during the building (rather than the robbery) of the country, their labours could have been by mute mongolian monkeys for all their importance.

The singular effect of Most Holy Diversity has been corrosive; the balkanization of a remarkably effective society in which the individual rather than the group prevailed.

The merit of the war depends

The merit of the war depends on what "hundreds of Sunni Muslims" wanted to celebrate that day? Maybe Obama should resign because a sixth grade civics class in McBean prefers blue tick hounds to the Obama family pet Bo (Bo is a neutered male Portuguese Water Dog)

Good Morning America. Rants

Good Morning America.

Rants 2, 5, and 7. When will some people in America realize that our King SMCICBHO will never do anything to hurt the feelings and to provide all the support he can for the people of his own kind. Remember, to him there is no such thing as a "terrorist."

Thanks for all the emails I received in reference to the donation of my deceased Veteran's TV. I have decided to honor it by given it to a disabled Lady Sargent who was injured in Afghanistan. You may have heard that she went to visit her family during Christmas and when she returned, her house had been ram shacked and all valuables were taken.
The robbers even took her bible and shredded it. I know I could have donated it to many veteran associations but I preferred it to be a more personal donation. Thank you all.

"Diversity” That destructive

"Diversity” That destructive attitude has quadrupled in this once great Christian nation the past 3 years. It is nothing but a plan that will bring America to it's knees. Just wait till Sharia Law is fully accepted!

Wednesday afternoon I

Wednesday afternoon I received the most butt chewing call I have received in years from a lady saying she was so offended by my Avatar.
She wanted to know if I wanted to shot liberals. I listen to her with respect and let her ramble on for almost a half hour. I finally told her that I would only shot the ideology of a liberal that is trying so hard to destroy the United States of America.
I wish she would have the courage to post her telephone conversation on here an assure her I would not be offended.
Sean, if she does, please do not remove her post because she has her God given right to her feelings.

I know I had nightmares after

I know I had nightmares after the Clemson game the other night. I dreamed WV players were just running all over my bedroom. I had to work yesterday and got up at 4AM after a restless night. Then I had to put up with my boss who is a WV fan. Terrible day.
