RAVE FOR MARCUS TAYLOR for stepping in and helping the lady who was kidnapped with her baby and doing the right thing by holding the accused while the police were on their way. Kudos to him for not being afraid to step up. God bless you.

I AGREE ABOUT THE roads in downtown Augus­ta. At least once a year I have to get an alignment. These roads are way overdue. Broad Street is the worst. Where is our money going?

ELLIOTT BOULEVARD in south Augusta used to be a very nice, quiet street and we enjoyed it, but it is not that way anymore. Crime and noise at all hours of the night have made it intolerable. But I remember when it was a nice quiet street to live on. Sad.

COME ON, CSRA, show that you love your country and fly your colors. Fly your flag and show our soldiers that you care for what they have done for us. We love America. Fly your flag.

I AM SICK AND TIRED of hearing about what all the people in Hyde Park deserve to have. They deserve to have what they get out and work for and are able to provide for themselves and their families. I’m sick of all this free giveaway stuff.

OBAMA HAS KEPT interest rates so low, at one half of one percentage point, that retirees have no income from their savings while inflation has almost doubled the price on everything you buy. He should not get a single vote from retirees.

I WANT TO THANK the group that is trying to keep Augusta in the new university name. I wish them good luck.

RAVE FOR THE Just Give Me Jesus revival team. Thank you so much for bringing that revival to Au­gusta, and God bless each and every one of you.

"Fly your flag and show ... you care..."

Yeah, right. Just like those made in China flag lapel buttons make you a patriot.

Hyde Park

"...They deserve to have what they get out and work for and are able to provide for themselves and their families."

We deserve what we work for as well; I just wish providing for my family didn't entail the government forcing me to give up earnings for other families in the name of "fairness."

How is it that

...every time I use the drive-up ATM, the person in front of me is doing their once-yearly banking?

Interest rates

Obama hasn't kept interest rates low, the Fed has in an effort to stave off more recession and to stimulate economic growth. I suppose you could tie him to Bernanke, but any other POTUS would be in the same boat.

We are told that there is NO

We are told that there is NO inflation.
Haven't you heard?

Those prices you are paying for food and other necessities have not gone up.
We are to believe this....

25 Years Today

a drug infested Cold Blooded Killer took the life of my son and 2 of his friends. It has been 25 years of praying to God that he gives me Peace and Justice before he takes me from this earth.

Yeah, I be that maroon. Guy called me that and got 4 thumbs ups. Heh, heh, heh.

But getting an alingment once a year ain't a bad deal like that rant said. Keeps the crick out of my neck.

dstewartsr, made in china

Seems you're missing the point here. Or are you a foreign implant? You don't have to buy Made in China unless you chose too. I proudly fly my flag every day, and guess what?! It's made in America!

A sad day indeed and you have my deepest sympathy. I can't imagine anything much worse than losing a child, regardless of their age. The circumstances here make it even worse.

Cobalt George

George, I am so sorry to hear about your son and his two friends. One day you WILL see him again, and be together for eternity.......... There are some people that have made choices that change lives forever, but, with the knowledge of knowing where your son is, and that you will be with him again, let that be the biggest part of The Peace you need, and can have. Trust me, the murderer may not receive the justice he deserves while here on Earth, but, he will have to answer to The Judge...one day! I'll be thinking of you...

Terrorism

Thanks for that link, Angie. The story should be shocking, but, sadly, it is not. We have been lied to so much by the Obama administration that it no longer surprises us.
