I HAVE BEEN waiting at the airport to wish all those “… leaving the country if Obama wins …” a nice trip. Haven’t seen anyone yet, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

MY HEART GOES OUT to the sane people of Augusta. Marion Williams back on the commission. Those who fail to learn from history …

WHY NOT USE the name UGA at AUGUSTA (UGAA) like USC at AIKEN does (USCA)? OR UGARA. This may cancel the lawsuit.

THE GOP SEEMS to have gone all out to pretend to want to win while they really seemed to work hard to lose; and at that they were successful, so they continue with their game playing.

THE CHRONICLE’S AREA crime map looks like a sea of red flags. It’s only gonna get worse because we’ve re-elected a Congress and president who will continue to sell the communist idea that if you’re living off government handouts, you are still not getting enough. Watch your back, America!

THANKS TO THE 18,662 voters who voted in Marion Williams for commissioner. You voted for a man who had a bad attitude before and as he said himself recently he will continue to have that bad attitude. Great job, guys, for creating a future disaster!

WITH BOTH BIG political parties controlled by grossly corrupt goons, what’s next?

LET’S LEARN FROM what Greece is going through. Its latest austerity measures, which will further slash pensions and salaries, have resulted in 80,000 rioters rampaging outside Parliament. Let’s get our country back in fiscal order before it’s too late!

WITH THE ELECTION, nothing has changed. Obama has the same policies, and the House and Senate have the same mix of representatives as before. Since gridlock will be the name of the game, I do not see much hope for real change. Sad really.

“YOUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll weaken your economy, until you fall, like overripe fruit into our hands.” – Nikita Khrushchev, 1959

A little funny for today...

A number of 12 year old school girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror!:)

Good Morning All!

Day 12 of the new era and the sky is still in place, no signs in the moon and stars of impending doom and only 1,505 days until Hillary is inaugerated as our first woman President.

Life is good.

Oh, dichotomy, how far will the stock market drop today?

Last Rant

I was a very young girl when Khrushchev gave this warning and prediction, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Of course we didn't believe it then, but, with the leadership we have now.........oh yeah! It could very well happen!! The Russian government does not believe in GOD and they have always hated us. I know some of you think you know-it-all(SO please do Not respond to something you do not know or think you know Biblically), but this hatred goes all the way back to Jacob and Esau...........................

Thanks for the synopsis, SeenitB4. I guess campaigning for 2016 has begun already.

I like the quote that I heard on TV:

I like the quote that I heard on TV when it was said that my father was a devout republican and always voted republican. But, since his death, he has always voted democrat. (sorry, I do not know who said it)
