FOR EVERYBODY WHO thinks having more and more children will get you more and more food stamps and welfare money, I hope that God will be with you because soon none of us will have a penny left for anything. We taxpayers can barely make ends meet and feed our own children, much less yours. God help you, and God help us all. Please pray for the United States.

YOU GET WHAT you voted for. You voted to put President Obama back in office, so live and deal with what is going to happen to this country. You think it was messed up before? Congratulations. It’s like putting Clinton back in.

YOU CONSERVATIVES who insist on comparing voter ID with an ID required to get a free turkey show your lack of information about the rights of an American citizen. Every citizen has the right to vote. No one has the right to a free turkey, and the people giving out the free turkeys can use whatever criteria they choose for qualifying a person for that free turkey.

WHY DO ALL THESE single women have a house full of kids? Instead of welfare, they should be giving them birth control pills.

I SAY REOPEN SOME OF the department stores downtown on Broad Street and help Broad Street come back to life. Also, put more deputies on the street.

BESIDES HAVING THEIR own officials, Alabama has Mark Richt on their side, too. Every big game, he mismanages the clock. If you look back over the big games that Georgia has lost, our head coach has mismanaged the clock at the end. Mike Bobo needs to be the head coach. Mark Richt needs to go.

A RANT FOR PRESIDENT Obama. Even before his next inauguration, he is out campaigning at taxpayers’ expense. Don’t be surprised if he tries to change Amendment 22 of the Constitution so he can run again. He has seen how Putin and Cha­vez did it, and he will try the same thing.

Susan Rice has withdrawn from

Susan Rice has withdrawn from consideration for Sec. for State. You can't help but feel a little sorry for her the way the Obama administration sent her out there to lie about Benghazi. She was thrown under the bus, bigtime.

Turkey ID and Voter ID Comparison

The ranter said, "YOU CONSERVATIVES who insist on comparing voter ID with an ID required to get a free turkey show your lack of information about the rights of an American citizen. Every citizen has the right to vote."

Since we have many people in the country who are not citizens, just how do you propose we determine who is a citizen? Don't you realize THAT'S the problem?

Ranter #3...

...Civics 101.....every citizen does NOT have the right to vote in a presidential election.....in fact NO citizen has that right...

...We vote at the state level for electors, who then in turn vote for the president in the electoral college.....

This ranter is obviously ignorant of the Constitution, and probably can't name their Senators, but I'll bet you they know who "Snookie" and "Honey Boo-Boo-" are.....

No wonder we have been saddled with the so-called "leaders" we have ...At the Federal, State AND local level.....

Me?...I "shrugged" on Nov. 7th....

A very good comparison:

No complaint for requiring and ID for that free Turkey that will last a day.

but an ID to prevent the illegal election of a Turkey what will last for 4 more years, Hell No!

Those parents

that voted to put this Hammer & Sickle Man back in power, in my book were real sorry parents thinking only for themselves. Never once did they consider what their children and Grands will inherit by their selfish action. Their Education, Moriarty standards, unplayable debt, lack of pride - Honor and respect, living in a 3rd world country with a constitution that no longer exist, slaves of the government and no religious beliefs.

Oh, they will have a great future, thanks to you all. Don't worry, your children will never have to work, that is untill all the remaining working ones that he taxes daily slowly dies under his whip.

By the end of the 4 years, this SMNCICBHO, the Hammer & Sickle Man will just follow the ways of Putin and Cha­vez and electe himself.

Prior To

November 6th 2008, Diversity was healing itself slowly. Now,it wounds have been infected and spreading. Racism was there but was being corrected and almost didn't exist. Now, Racism is one of the greatest movements in the USA. Division of humanity is now at an amplified level which has never been seen before.

A no shot Revolution is already taken place, but the hand writing on the wall clearly show The Big Bang is going to come. When it does, it ain't going to be pretty. America, just keep your head in the sand, better yet, cover your whole body with sand and you may survive.

Radical Thinking, Right?....OK

Clock management

The end of the Alabama game was disappointing if you were a Dawg fan but with no time outs left it was up to Aaron Murray to manage the clock, not Coach Richt. Hindsight is 20-20 and if given the chance to do it all over again I am sure he would have done it differently. As far as Bobo being head coach, I say Nono.

As far as clock management as

As far as clock management as it pertains to the Ga-Bama game, I have to remind y'all of something....remember that the prior play got Georgia a first down, and a first down equals an official time-out so they can move the down markers. The thing that Mark Richt learned about time management, he applied in this case....they already had a planned play in place, so there was no reason to call a time out. Another point to consider..the way it stood, with 15 seconds left on the clock to start, Georgia potentially had time for 3 plays, but if the ball had been spiked, enough time would have clicked off the clock for there to be only time enough for 2 plays. So, would you rather have 3 available attempts or 2? The real problem that actually occurred was that not only was the ball tipped, but it was tipped and went into a Georgia receivers hands! How often does that happen? If the tipped ball had bounced to the ground, then clock would have stopped and allowed for an additional play. But it didn't happen that way, and Alabama was the beneficiary of Georgia's bad luck. To blame Mark Richt for this is wrong and is just more Monday-Morning-Quarterbacking. It's time to move on and I hope Alabama beats ND.

YOU LIBERALS, who insist on turning your back on the honest citizens in favor of illegal ones can take your turkey and stuff it. Winning an election should not be so important that you work against the best interests of your country, but that would never occur to a liberal.

Really

"If you look back over the big games that Georgia has lost, our head coach has mismanaged the clock at the end". Funny, I can't think of a single game where that occurred. And JMO is right on. UGA may not have scored even if they had two more plays, but, at the end of the day, it was just bad luck for UGA. Noone is too blame.

America

It's so beautiful to wake up in America, go outside on my patio, take a breath of cold clean air, see the white frost on your lawn, watch the fog slowly rolling off the pond, 100's of geese just a yaking, the only sound to be heard, and you say, Thank You God for all that you have given me........

Then

You go back inside and use God's given science, push a button and read the online news, another button to see and hear the news.....

POOF...

you wake up to the real America!

R & R #1 & #4

If I were a child with a number of siblings, and my mother had always received ''entitlements", I believe one day I would come to the realization that I was Not a child of a loving relationship, but, an excuse or means, of getting MORE in money or privileges my mother would receive. Too bad these kind of parents don't think about that....

Board of Trustees

educationvoiceofreason posted:

RCBOE doesnt need an online system to pick their leaders they need ethical and fair leaders at the top who follow the rules they make. His wife also teaches at Langford Middle School. It is obvious that the Superintendent is oblivious. Board members are you a part of this travesty?

If you will gather all the evidence you have and make a phone call to Board trustee Helen Minchew and ask for an appointment to meet her in person (it can be at a coffee shop somewhere), she will listen to your complaint and take it seriously. Your writing style is prone to errors, so your complaint will be more effective verbally. You have made some good points and deserve to be heard. When you have your meeting with Ms. Minchew, remember to be professional and don't get off track. Stick to the facts.

"Every citizen has the right

"Every citizen has the right to vote."

That implies TWO things.

First, ONLY a citizen has a right to vote and the ONLY way to enforce that is to have an ID that proves you are a citizen. In a country FULL of illegal aliens IF you have an ID then you have a right to vote.

Second. A citizen has a right to vote.....ONCE. An ID helps prevent a voter from voting more than once.

The Constitution that gives citizens a right to vote also gives the same citizens a right to own a gun but we require them to show ID and go through background checks to get one.

All RIGHTS come with responsibility and a tad of inconvenience. Just because it is a RIGHT does not mean it comes with no inconvenience. It means it is a RIGHT IF you meet the condition of being a citizen.

Where Will It End?

This Associated Press story is interesting:

ATLANTA — A Georgia lawmaker is looking to give drivers who support a woman's right to choose the option to demonstrate their viewpoint with a specialty license plate. WSB-TV reports that out of 125 specialty plates, Georgia drivers have the option of purchasing one showcasing their anti-abortion standpoint. However, specialty license plates promoting a pro-abortion rights viewpoint are not offered. The television station reports that Democratic State Sen. Gloria Butler, of Stone Mountain, is looking to review an amendment she introduced in 2005 for the state to offer pro-abortion rights specialty plates after the General Assembly approved anti-abortion plates. A judge in North Carolina ruled the state offering specialty plates on one side of the issue but not the other was discriminatory and unconstitutional. Butler says that motivated her to reconsider the amendment.

Georgia also has license plates supporting game hunting. Will they now have to manufacture license plates opposing game hunting? We have license plates supporting breast cancer research. Will they now have to manufacture license plates opposing breast cancer research? We have "educator" license plates with the cute little apple on them. Will we now have to manufacture plates opposing education?

What are some of the other specialty license plates you have seen?

Speaking of license plates . . .

I was looking at the specialty plates available in Georgia at their web site. They indicate it is still possible to get a Medical College of Georgia license plate. If you want one "you'd better grab it fast" (as Bob Dylan sang). I'm sure the upcoming Grooo license plate will replace the MCG one.

Here is the link:

Speaking of medical questionaires:

I've been going to the same dental clinic for close to two decades; the practice has been taken over by a really sharp woman who --gasp-- actually checks the patient records before beginning treatment! She came in smiling with my record in hand. As probably the first person to actually read all the stuff we patients have to fill in, she noted under "person to notify in case of medical emergency," I had written, "any competent doctor."

She told me I was a brilliant donkey . . . or words to that effect.

Not sure if anyone has pointed this out, but there is no such thing as a "right to vote". I'll wait right here while you look it up and tell me where the Constitution proclaims this.

Amendment XV

The fifteenth amendment to the constituion says this:

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude--
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

So that sounds like there is some vague "right" to vote. Of course, the wording also supports the ability of the government to deny voting for reasons other than color or race. For example, you can be denied the right to vote if you are not properly registered to vote. You can be denied if you show up at the wrong precinct. You can be denied if you don't have proper I.D.
