RAVES FOR OUR President and his perseverance on the health care legislation which brings us nearer to realizing our ideal of “one nation under god.”

I WANT TO THANK the man who saved my grandson by pulling him out of the window when our house was burning. Thanks again and God be with you.

FUNNY HOW RACISM is defined these days. A black person can admit that he voted for Obama only because of race, and that’s OK. But, if a white person admitted to voting against Obama because of race, he would be branded as racist. Also, a young black man is shot and thousands march and protest before the facts of the case are even known. But, let a black man shoot a policeman, and these same marchers are silent. There are two types of racism today: acceptable and unacceptable.

RANT TO THE NEW management team of The Patch. Even after a month, trees felled by the storm have not been removed.

They said ‘no’ to having long-running charity tournaments at the course that generated guaranteed revenue. They ran off regular paying customers. And now they want us – taxpayers – to give them $300,000 for improvements. What’s up with that? And did they think anything through?

I AGREE ABOUT the Southside Mafia needing to make a comeback. I had high hopes for my commissioner out here in Goshen but have also been disappointed. He seems to just go along with whatever Joe Bowles tells him to do.

THE NEW GEORGIA law raising taxes by taxing Internet purchases was a recommendation from a group called the “Special Council (so official sounding) on Tax Reform and Fairness for Georgians.” Anything put forward that’s called “fairness,” “affordable,” etc., is always the opposite of what the name implies. This is standard procedure from big government, Big Brother politicians. The supposed “conservatives” who support such Marxism are working for the left, even if they’re too egotistically stupid to realize it.

PEOPLE, PLEASE keep your children in your yard. Not everyone likes the creatures, especially their smell and all the other nasty things they do. Plus all their bad habits ... wonder where they picked those up from, not the cat!

soapy_725 I beg to differ

soapy_725 I beg to differ about the Maters putting politics on the back burner. Politicians never take a vacation. The Red Carpet is one proof. Always looking for money, politicos and influence peddling. What better,more beautiful, peaceful "venue" to hide in to do the job. Other than, say, CHURCH?

Congrats, soapy_725, your on line comment from yesterday made the morning hardcopy today. You are correct about church. Many go to church just for the socializing and the influence peddling. Some honest ones actually admit to it. Well, maybe not in public! lol

"RAVES FOR OUR President and his perseverance on the health care legislation"

Please provide your address so we can send the $3 trillion dollar bill for now until 2020 and all of your children's addresses so they can pick up the tab for 2021 and beyond. Personally, I'm tired of paying for people who will not work and pay their own way. And I am amazed at the number of people who support a 2700 page document which they have no idea of what all is in it. Oh I forgot.......free stuff for some......paid for with other people's money.

@ last ranter. my kids smell

@ last ranter.

my kids smell like Night Crawlers, fried chicken, and root beer. They have this hatred of indoor plumbing and would rather nitrogenate the shrubs and hedges. He is fascinated with potty jokes and Dragonballz and as of yet hasn't grasped the concept of volume.

I know you ain't talkin bout my kids.

I am wondering how Obamacare

I am wondering how Obamacare brings us closer to being "one nation under God". It seems to me that it is such a divisive issue that it can't bring us to being "one" nation. It is based on the principle that the government can forcibly take money from you to give to someone else and it also forces another person to provide goods and services to another without the compensation that they wish to accept.. I don't see how God plays in to that concept.

I say if those who don't want

I say if those who don't want to purchase health insurance gets sick or hurt, then let them pay out-of-pocket and deny them medicaid. Why should I purchase insurance, and others live high on the hog because they say they can't afford insurance? That would be a compromise to forcing everyone to purchase insurance.

Happy, I think that is the

Happy, I think that is the whole issue; the uninsured, who are billed "out of pocket", don't pay out of pocket and the providers wind up writing it off; then charging you and me extra to cover it.

Because there are people who are truly between the rock and a hard place, I would be OK with a fix targeted to that small minority. Offer them a buy in to Medicare at competitive group rates; and for those who still decline, be sure they pay their medical bills using the same kind of compliance tools the IRS would if you owed taxes.
