WHAT IS HAPPENING to society when Rotary Clubs hold casino nights?

RAVE FOR THE ARC/Westside Class of 1972 Reunion Committee. Thank you, committee members, for being willing to put forth such an effort to contact all of your former teachers, principals and administrative staffers and invite them to be your guest at your 40th reunion. … All classmates should make an effort to attend this event. I know I will.

THERE IS ONLY ONE reason that vehicles do not get at least double the miles per gallon they obtain today – greed. There is only one reason fuel prices are so high: greed. When (not if) gas prices go above $5 per gallon, that will be the beginning of the end for life as we know it.

PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS are taxed to pay for extra tutoring for kids who keep failing in school, yet those kids’ parents don’t even take advantage of it. Thus, it’s a waste of tax money, as is nearly all of tax money these days.

I AM ENTIRELY IN favor of reasonable environmental oversight of American industries, but I have seen nothing to give me any confidence in the ability of science to predict the weather in either the short term or the long term. I can’t support actions that will devastate our economy.

I FIND IT AMAZING the liberal TV/radio talking heads, academicians and entertainers so strongly support the current regime’s agenda. Apparently, these misguided individuals are not aware if it fully implements its plan, they will be the first ones redistributed to re-education facilities.

ONCE AGAIN, THE media are attempting to pick the Republican candidate instead of allowing the American people to make that decision. Newt Gingrich wins South Carolina by 12.5 percent, and it was reported as a slim victory. Mitt Romney wins Florida by 14 percent and it is touted as a landslide victory.

IF YOU ARE GOING to be out and about in a situation where you don’t feel safe, buy some pepper spray. It’s not very expensive and they come in cute little cases. You can keep them on your pocket book or in your pocket.

THE SOLUTION IS simple: If you don’t want an abortion, don’t have one. If you are against insurance companies paying for contraception or Viagra, don’t buy them. Or you can pay out of pocket for them.

I agree myopinion3 If I

I agree myopinion3
If I carried a gun and someone tried to rob me I'd blow his head off and then I'd fire 5 more shots into his head for good measure. I don't have a gun because with my luck I'd pull a Barney Fife and shot myself in the foot. I do applaud the ones who are gun experts. Lord knows we need some law abiding citizens packing heat to offset all the FELONS who all seem to be armed to the teeth.
I say any felon found to be armed should serve 20 years minimum but it would be easier to find a three legged balerina than a judge that would impose this penalty. Most of the judges are worthless yea worthless. Do you hear me judges? You're worthless!

To the last rant and rave-

To the last rant and rave- unfortunately the Catholic Church is finding out that it is not as simple as that. They are being forced by the government to buy Abortions, and contraceptives for all the people that work for them, wether the Catholic Church, or thier employees want them. All hail supreme Obama!

I saw Michelle Obama on Leno

I saw Michelle Obama on Leno the other night talking up her "healthy diet" thing that I'm sure is well intentioned. But has she lost even one pound? It sure doesn't look like it. Barack next to her looks like a skinny kid. It's time for her to rethink the diet. Really.

What bothers me about Mrs.

What bothers me about Mrs. Obama is saying that she is finally proud of this country.....finally.....??
This country has been great for most......with the effort anyone can change their life & make it as great as they want it to be....the education opportuntities are there for all..
Sometimes when I'm at the park I see all kinds of people enjoying the outdoors.......but I do realize some of our home bred southerners don't always take advantage of the things this country offers......like museums-libraries-parks---music centers--art.......what a waste..

SeenitB4-Mrs Obama went to

SeenitB4-Mrs Obama went to excellent schools, had an excellent education and has a great life. Lives in a large house in the best area of Chicago and then says she is finally proud of her country. Her country fought a civil war to end the injustice of slavery. Fought two world war to keep tyranny at bay, engaged in the cold war to stop communisum. Obama's country went through turmoil and strife to end civil rights abuses in America and gives more money to less fortunate others as individuals and a nation than any other country in the world and because her hubby gets nominated to be president she is finally proud of America...give me a break

MOrning you you and you.

MOrning you you and you. First comments for the most part Obama-related, how expected. Here's just a thought though and it's directed at the republicans i suppose. Why do yall insist on putting someone up against the guy you despise that doesn't have the best chance of winning. The guy in second has even less, so you got that right. Idk, Romney's hair is too perfect as my friend says, Newt comes off as a rich little philanderer and the other candidates are too far behind to be relevant. You hate that Obama is president, that's clear. You know who has the best chance of beating him among the candidates. It's Ron Paul. Put your GOP saber down and work the system to get the guy you despise out. Then come up with a republican candidate that is legitimate enough to take out Paul the next time.

BY not doing this, to me, you are saying, Obama is not the worse thing to ever happen, although you'd like folks to believe that the way you rail on him and his effort.

stay beautiful out there today!

"IF YOU ARE GOING to be out

"IF YOU ARE GOING to be out and about in a situation where you don’t feel safe, buy some pepper spray. It’s not very expensive and they come in cute little cases. You can keep them on your pocket book or in your pocket."

And if you're in a restaurant that serves bland food you can spice it up with just a few short bursts!

$5/gal for gas ain't nuttin'.

$5/gal for gas ain't nuttin'. Starbuck's charges $5 for a 20 oz latte. That works out to $32/gal and they ain't showing signs of going out of business anytime soon. Ride a bike you'll lose weight or take the bus it only costs $2. Let's get European America!

Man, those buses go everywhere I need to go. I'm 65 years old. I'm not riding a bike 14 miles to and from work and the 20 or so I may have to go during the work day. By the way, I don't need to lose weight.

Good mourning Augusta. And a

Good mourning Augusta. And a special hello to my lady friends.

Rant 1, I agree to carry some type of protection. My choice would be a concealed carry permit. But the thing is, I am not going anywhere that I would expect to have to use it.
