MY WATER BILL HAS a 3 percent rate hike but the fancy flier from Augusta Utilities says “doing more with less …” Thanks, Augusta-Richmond County!

THE SC EDUCATION OVERSIGHT Committee wants “more” tax money wasted on students who promise to become school teachers. The program was “created in 1984.” If it hasn’t worked, in 28 years, it ain’t gonna work. How do we keep electing such numbskulls?

LET’S SEE. MY INCOME for 2010 is down by about 10 percent and the tax I owe is up about 5 percent. Not the change I was hoping for.

IF TIGER WOODS WAS a college coach, he would be fired like Petrino for his unspeakable shenanigans on and off the golf course. Petrino brought great shame to the University of Arkansas and Tiger shames the PGA Tour and the Masters Tournament in the same way.

CHANGE CUTS GRAD RATES? When “educators” used a formula that was off by 26 percent, it’s clear the whole thing was a scam from the beginning. Can’t we see that a graduation rate is simply a ratio of kids who graduate to kids in school? Only politicians and statisticians can complicate such simple things.

A RANTER WANTS TO take energy companies away from the free market; to “end oil speculation.” Without speculation, there’d be no money to search for oil, nor to drill for it, nor to pump it. How sad that so many Americans are so ignorant of what made their country the freest and wealthiest in history.

(JAY) CARNEY, THE dolt who briefs the press, needs to get the chip off his shoulder. He believes he is smarter then the average citizen and becomes hostile when questioned by reporters, especially Fox reporters about Obama’s remarks concerning the Supreme Court. His first response seems always to be Obama was misquoted. I am sure millions of knowledgeable citizens understand the English language much better then Carney or should I say CORNEY?

RANT TO THE individual that stated that Obama was a great president and we should thank him for the $250 that he gave everyone. Obama didn’t give anyone anything. He forced taxpayers to give $250 to non-taxpayers.

SO THE GSA got caught with their hand in the cookie jar. Who do you think set the example for the GSA!

There is a story about Jack,

There is a story about Jack, in his prime, telling Clifford Roberts that the course condition was not up to par. Witnesses said Roberts got in Nicklaus's face and told him to pack his "stuff" and get off the property. No one golfer is bigger than the Masters.

Many don't comprehend the wealth and power of the National. They could have the U.S. declare war and notify Congress later if they wanted.

Remember the security chief

Remember the security chief at the National, now deceased, who used to shoot his shotgun at anyone on the course at night? He shot first and asked why they were there later.

He has been walking on air since that day.....what he fails to say is that he was the youngun in that group.....one guy was 91 & the other was 82......of course he was playing better.......I told him he took unfair advantage of his elders...LOL

What you shoot is what your score. In fact you keep a record of the number of shots on a, wait for it, scorecard of all things.

Amazing that we THINK we know

Amazing that we THINK we know what is going on around us.....we don't....just found out this am that our front nabor was divorced in Jan of this year....they both work & he is out of town working at times.....so didn't really question his absence....
It seems he was playing a Tiger on her & it seems there are places on the internet where you can hook up with others wanting to play games while married.......who woulda thunk it!! LOL...

GOB ask me if I knew about them (those places) duh duh...what was I gonna say.....:):).......of course not.....it isn't just porn on the internet...in the world of today you can "play" almost any game right from your home puter.....now you can order maid service in any flavor.....with or without clothes while cleaning.....& some wonder where kids LEARN stuff......

Tell me how do you stop this information.....most kids are so internet savy they can run circles around adults......the genie is out of the bottle..there is no going back.

I know, just a little bit of sarcasm in that post. OK, a lot of sarcasm. Rarely do you hear a golfer, and I am one, talk about a score. Unless it is with the waitress on the 19th hole.

There's a big difference between being a married millionaire cheating on his wife and a coach messing with boys in the shower. Big difference.
