EDITH AND ARCHIE Bunker were Honey Boo Boos. They are everywhere you go in the South. Sometimes, the truth hurts.

WE ARE ON THE Do Not Call telephone list; however, we get four or five calls per week from credit card service telling me my credit card is going to expire. Then the phone rings and it is someone telling me they are from the FBI and we are having break-ins in our neighborhood, which is false. Does anybody know who to stop these scammers? I am sick and tired of them using my phone, which I pay for, to promote their scams.

IF A CANDIDATE for the Augusta Commission works for the state in a position that requires him to be on call seven days per week, 24 hours per day and we pay him for that as an exempt employee, why would we want to pay him to be a commissioner? I bet if elected he will be a big no-show and we will not be represented.

A RANT TO SO-CALLED teachers and preachers who spew hate toward people, white or black, who disagree with them and call them racists and Uncle Toms. I am white and I did not vote for Obama, not because of color. He had no background in politics. No one knew him. I did not vote for Carter for the same reason. Only an idiot votes for someone because of the color of his skin.

I DID NOT HEAR A word about the five escaped prisoners on my phone machine. I live near that facility, and I would like to know if I could be in danger.

WHAT WAS SO surprising about the Cherry Tree Crossing story was that the mother, grandmother, nieces and
nephews all live in Cherry Tree Crossing. It must be a complex for people who don’t want to work or pay for their own rent. It is for generations of people in the same family living off the government and the taxpayers.

I AM CONSTANTLY getting a crease on the second page of the paper you have to unfold before you can even read it. Somebody needs to fix your machinery.

THE LONGER WE MAKE it easy for all these illegitimate babies to be born for these teens and the more money we give them when they have them, the more will have them.


I WOULD LIKE TO ASK for support for Freddie Sanders for sheriff of Richmond County. He has the qualifications and experience and is the best candidate.

One of mine was removed last

One of mine was removed last night, and no names were mentioned. A few of us are not allowed to post our opinions.

TOS

Anyone who follows our terms of service can post almost any opinion they want. I make no apologies for enforcing our rules. It's my job. I've never thought that our site is a good fit for everyone, but as long as you try to follow the rules and can take direction with good grace when we remove comments, there is not reason you can't comment here.

I do try to follow the rules,

I do try to follow the rules, but I have seen insulting comments stay, and comments not insulting removed. I remember one political candidate I do not like, and I said so. I was warned I could not talk bad about him. Just look at the daily comments insulting President Obama and others. That's ok in your reasoning.

Politicians

Politicians have slightly different rules, but that doesn't mean anything goes. Take direction and don't take it so personally when we remove a comment. We are not out to get anyone. If I really want someone gone, I will let them know. I have no problem with you. Just don't take it so personally. I'm going to bed now. Have fun - just not too much fun.
