STATE BUDGET CUTS force more layoffs at GHSU. Yet state funds were wasted on an ignored survey and are being wasted on an unnecessary lawsuit in order to satisfy greed, arrogance and egotism. How many more jobs will be lost?

MIKE BOOTH’S LETTER to the editor cites an excellent list of criteria that shows the advantages of hiring senior citizens. Unfortunately, not all seniors can meet the listed criteria, but it’s something that one could evaluate before hiring.

IF YOU PRAY for it and it happens, your prayer was answered. If you pray for it and it doesn’t happen, it’s God’s will. If everything is according to God’s omniscient will, what, then, is the point of prayer?

THE PLACEMENT OF a historical marker to a Yankee officer in Augusta is an example of our ridiculously “politically correct” society. This man seized Gen. Lee’s wife’s property in revenge for his service to the South. Are there markers to Confederate soldiers in the North? I doubt it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA said that there will be consequences if President Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons on his people. I wonder what these consequences will be? Probably he will just send a letter to Assad telling him to stop it. That’s what you call strong leadership.

FINALLY, GEORGIA Southern got on the front page of the sports section after advancing to the semifinals in the playoffs. GSU was on Page 7 while UGA dominated all the pages, even though the Bulldogs lost.

WHO’S FOOTING THE bill for the formal $150-per-person gala for the new sheriff? Better not be us taxpayers.

I’M GLAD THERE was a nice private fete to Sheriff Ronnie Strength. I just wish there was a nice public one that more of us could attend.

I CAN GET OVER the fact that Obama was re-elected; you have to get over the fact that my criticisms are due to a disagreement with hi philosophy and not due to racism.

Easier in Confederate Army

I think it would have been more fun in the Confederate Army with fewer regulations, plus easier to make rank....That is until they started to lose.

Woody Allen

did a good job describing what I was thinking when I woke this AM.

“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”

You spend your 1st 9 months of life trying to get "out" of there & then the rest of your life trying to get back in "there"....what a world!

Going to be a bad day in the market today. Obama brought nothing to the table except his self-importance and arrogance. Don't blame the Republicans.

What the heck is wrong with "trying to get back in "there"? Everybody has to have a goal, right?

Dichotomy, it doesn't matter

Dichotomy, it doesn't matter about the budget. Obama's entire theme is to take from those who have. That's the one thing he won't compromise on. We could have a balanced budget with zero debt and he would still be calling for taking more in taxes.

My First House

was built in the exact location of the Crawford Plantation home. It has a very interesting civil war history. The Crawford cemetery with the Crawfords and Slaves is also on my property.

Prayer

"IF YOU PRAY for it and it happens, your prayer was answered. If you pray for it and it doesn’t happen, it’s God’s will. If everything is according to God’s omniscient will, what, then, is the point of prayer?"
It cleanses the soul. Do you have a worry? Turn it over to God in prayer. I really does work! TRY IT, YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!
