FIRST, DR. AZZIZ TOLD us that he was smarter than we were. Then he said Augusta wasn’t cool. Now Dr. Azziz wants ASU. ASU, be afraid, be very afraid.

ALAS, THE presidential campaign manipulations are working smoothly and we seem to end up with no choice, i.e., a choice between Santorum and Romney. And if the big media are so powerful they can “render Santorum unelectable” based on their own anti-conservatism, we’re in bloody poor shape as an electorate. The media have convinced conservatives that nobody is good, but surely, sensible voters will simply ignore the media and vote for the least bad.

WHAT’S AUGUSTA STATE got to do with improving health? Is this government concentrating more power in one person? Azziz? He’s wasting no time.

BOEING AIRPLANE makers were attacked in S.C. by Obama after Boeing tried to start a plant that would create a lot of jobs. Now Boeing is forced to close the longtime job-making plant in Wichita, Kan. Obama claims he creates jobs while all the time he destroys jobs!

I WOULD LIKE TO RANT about the people who are ignoring school speed zones and who are also ignoring the school buses that are stopped with their lights flashing on Belair Road in the mornings.

RAVE TO DARIC JOHNSON for taking action in a dangerous situation.

THE LIBERAL MEDIA PRETEND to support women, yet they viciously attack sensible conservatives like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. Liberals own the media, the White House, the courts and most of Con­gress. We’d better wake up and fast.

IF OBAMA/CONGRESS would cut the abysmal waste out of the military, there’d be no need to cut out actual combat personnel. Rather, Obama is keeping the waste and cutting the soldiers. And Congress goes right along with him.

SAUDI ARABIA has beheaded 79 witches this year.

STANTON OPTICAL COMMERCIAL = very annoying!

I WISH WHOEVER FOUND my 55-year-old Seiko watch a few days before Christmas would have turned it in. I ran a lost ad in The Augusta Chronicle and The North Augusta Star. I offered a reward along with my phone number.

How many really pay attention

How many really pay attention to the liberal media...or any media anymore.....our news now comes from sooo many sources that it is impossible for one entity to rule the show anymore..
We have some on here who read 4 to 5 papers a day....even across the pond & other countries....we sift that info. in a blender & when the chaff falls out we make sense & then we get on here and reprint the truth as we know it.....ya can't fool us...by gollly.

I've cut back on my posting

I've cut back on my posting because I do not belong to the AC "Report Club." As you know, I say it as it is, very little PC and that offends some.
Even my Avatar offends some.....love it.

I've always thought the Lord knew what he was doing when he gave us the job of making babies....men would get side-tracked at the first football game they came across...if that baby was coming they would just say "Wait for the timeout to come"...yaknow whatta mean!

Don't kid yourself...Azziz

Don't kid yourself...Azziz didn't want ASU. Noone wants ASU...
Why in the world would anyone want a state university with such terrible academics, limited funding, and next to zero research work?
