Comments from readers:

QUIT TALKING ABOUT a stadium. We don’t need that. What this city needs is to be cleaned up.

WHY DOES THE Better Business Bureau have a telephone that they never answer?

A BIG RAVE TO the painted PETA protesters. Animals are not ours to wear. I think they were doing a great job and braving some cold temperatures.

A FEW YEARS AGO while visiting in Alaska, they told me PETA meant People Eating Tasty Animals.

RAVES TO MS. LIZA EMORY of Campania, Ga. She is a wonderful senior citizen who always looks out for other people.

THERE IS A LINE FROM My Fair Lady; it says “Show me, show me.” Obama hasn’t shown me anything. The pipeline was approved. I’m sick and tired of it.

I WANT TO THANK God for our troops coming home, and I thank our great president for ending this nine-year war. I hope you continue to do a good job for this country. He deserves our honor.

TOTAL PRICE FOR airline tickets is a good idea. Now how about the same thing for motels? We don’t need sticker shock at the desk.

THE POLICE NEED a refresher course in driving. They don’t use turn signals, they don’t turn their lights on when raining, they go through stop lights, and they roll through stop signs. I know they are not all on secret calls.

WE NEED TO bring our aircraft carriers home. This is entirely unacceptable that we are trying to provoke another war.

REGARDING THE illegal left turn off of Walton Way at Woodlawn Methodist Church, people have been making illegal left turns there long before the day-care center was there. I used to get stuck there behind people trying to make illegal left turns there in the 1990s.

THE COLUMBIA COUNTY Commission has built new county buildings, a new school, a highway department, a health department an animal control. Will the godfathers of Columbia County please put a red light on Long Creek Falls, Baker Place Road and William Few Parkway? The neighbors are tired of having to sit and wait. Please put a red light at that intersection.

"REGARDING THE illegal left

"REGARDING THE illegal left turn off of Walton Way at Woodlawn Methodist Church, people have been making illegal left turns there long before the day-care center was there. I used to get stuck there behind people trying to make illegal left turns there in the 1990s."

Agreed. I lived in the CSRA (North Augusta and Augusta) for over two decades and moved last August. During my time in Augusta, I lost count of how many times I witnessed people making illegal left turns there. Same for the intersection of Central and Highland.

Regarding the troops coming

Regarding the troops coming home from Iraq. Don't give a lot of credit to Obama. "All US Forces are mandated to withdraw from Iraqi territory by December 31, 2011 under the terms of a bilateral agreement signed in 2008 by President Bush." OB didn't have a lot to do with it. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withdrawal_of_U.S._troops_from_Iraq

Of course he's going to claim

Of course he's going to claim credit. He has nothing else to show good for himself during his first term. What a piece of work he is and an example of how stupid Americans have become. He does have handlers and big bucks, big evil bucks, backing him up.

What is the difference

What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?
If you say to a psychiatrist "I hate my mother," he will ask "Why do you say that?" while a psychologist will say "Thank you for sharing that with us."

Once I had multiple personalities, but now we are feeling well.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.
The best thing about being schizophrenic is that I'm never alone.
Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean people aren't out to get you!
Hypochondria is the only illness that I don't have.

Yes---yes-yes....we are feeling well this morning.....good am to all readers & watchers....:)

yep good friday morning. Rant 1 - what augusta needs is a good clean-up hitter.... in a ballpark on the river HAH!

I honor Pres. Obama and don't thinks he's as lame as the good posters above. I didn't think W was lame either. Did I become stupid over the last 3 years?

Good am Parker.... A blonde

Good am Parker....

A blonde decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience. She mounts the horse unassisted and the horse immediately springs into motion. It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to slip from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway. The horse gallops along, seemingly impervious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, she leaps away from the horse to try and throw herself to safety. Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup, she is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over. As her head is battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness when to her great fortune... the Walmart manager sees her and shuts the horse off.

Sorry......I just had to put a blonde joke on here...:):)

Drivers are breaking the law

Drivers are breaking the law when they make a left turn off Walton Way at Woodlawn Church. Then, or now, it is illegal!

Strange about the blood being

Strange about the blood being found at Grovetown and then the unusual weather balloon coming down. We need to keep all this mysterious and get an Area 51 thing going in Columbia County. I'll tell everyone the aliens kidnapped me and took me for a ride. My friends would believe it.

Can Richmond County get a new traffic engineer? This guy is worthless with some of the most poorly planned traffic movement I've ever seen.
