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!

Rant #1, no one in any of the previous comments understands what God has to do with it and I don't either.

Glad to be back in Augusta. Took the kids to Washington DC. My little girl didn't want to see the White House because Obama lives there. I showed her it from a distance and she shrugged. She was more interested in seeing the Lincoln Memorial. The reflection pond was drained though, that made me mad.

My daughter says because he

My daughter says because he is taking mommy's money and giving it to other people who aren't working for it. I know I had influence on that, but she gets to hear other people's viewpoints.

Regarding the post about

Regarding the post about funny how racism is. Since October of last year we have seen the double standards in our community alone. We had three local police officers killed in the line of duty, when this happened where was the Southern Baptist Ministers Group. We didn't see them holding a vigil or marching
through the streets or down to the courthouse, protesting against violence against our local law enforcement personnel. No they sit home silent, as if they condone the actions of the criminal element in our community. Their lack of action shows that they do not support their community, if the situation does not support their agenda. Our local churches our local governments, they all help divide this community by their lack of action.

So Richard, you want the

So Richard, you want the Southern Baptist Ministers Group (whomever they are...never heard of this group) to act like the racist, misinformed protestors so many have complained about occurring in Florida and around the United States. Doesn't sound very Christian to me but then most would enjoy degrading, pointing fingers, and judging their actions as being hypocrites if they did.

Lack of action isn't what divides our community, it's the mentality that I am most important, only my needs and wants are valid, and to heck with everyone else attitude, we have program society into believing.

I seriously doubt you have a clue what most local churches do to aid and help our community.
