DOES ANYONE IN this town have turn signals on their cars, or did the manufacturer forget to put them on your model?

AMERICA, WE NEED shovel-ready jobs and we need oil. With the Keystone pipeline gone, our last best hope is dowsing for oil. All that’s required is a divining rod, sturdy shoes and a Forrest Gump-like dedication to explore America on foot.

IT LOOKS LIKE the city is about to chalk up more loss on our Municipal Golf Course if they give The Patch operators that $300,000 of sales tax money for upkeep of the course. What a ridiculous contract that firm was given.

THE COLUMBIA COUNTY Commission accepted a nearly $7 million bid to purchase a new radio system for the sheriff’s office? To whom do they want to talk, the space shuttle?

MY TRIP THROUGH retail store and mall parking lots shows a direct correlation to low income and low tire air pressure. With gas headed for $5 per gallon, gas mileage would increase a lot with proper tire air pressure and clean engine air filters. Come on local churches, organize Saturdays to inspect tires, lights, air filters and help your congregations.

GAS WENT UP during the Bush administration, and Democrat protesters were all over the place. Gas has now gone up 32 days in a row (to well past $3.50 a gallon), yet they haven’t said anything. The “D” in Democrat must stand for duplicity.

HOW MUCH MORE can NASCAR and the NASCAR media cover Danica Patrick? She is a mediocre driver, and there are many male drivers as good who never get a single interview.

BARBARIANS LIVING in the sixth century are at our gates. Now is the time to get all U.S. personnel out of Afghanistan.

DFCS, YOUR JOB is to help us, not put us on hold. You’re no better than us; you’re probably getting more food stamps than we are.

I’M SICK OF seeing boys’ butts and underwear hanging out. If Augusta has (and I know they do) an indecent exposure law, then enforce it. Maybe this could be a good step in stopping the crime in this town. It’s not a fashion statement, it’s vulgar.

HOW DO THEY expect people to mail packages if they close the Post Office? They need to leave it open.

1. That thingy sticking out

1. That thingy sticking out from the left side of the steering column is just a place to mount the windshield wiper controls.

2. Ditto

3. I hear the "Three Stooges" theme.

4. There's that music again.

5. Did you ask everybody how much they make?

6. I think the national average was $1.87 on 20 January 2009.

7. It's called marketing.

8. Noted

9. You say you are getting food stamps like you are proud of it.

10. But it's a lot of fun when you accidentally step on the cuffs and the pants fall off.

11. UPS and FedEx

Good morning everyone! I've

Good morning everyone! I've been out of town teaching some college kids a little US history. Whether they learned anything I have no idea but I sure had a good time trying to stimulate thier random cerebral activity. I don't think they even believed that a Vice President Aaron Burr got into a duel with Alexander Hamilton and killed him. I don't think they believed a senator caned another senator for not agreeing with him.

People not using signals

People not using signals annoys me also but what can you do, it must not be a law to not to use them or else the counties would get rich writing tickets for it. I read in the Louisville paper about a young man being caught by police while running from a robbery in his sagging pants that he tripped on, now that was funny!
