LEAVE THE AUGUSTA GreenJackets where they are. There is nothing wrong with Lake Olmstead Stadium. They don’t belong in North Augusta; they belong in Augusta.

PSYCHOPATHS ARE everywhere. Cowards are everywhere. Such behavior needs to be dealt with before it is too late.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY no reason at all for that new Liquid Plumber commercial.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN more disgusted with Augusta than I was when I went to the south Augusta tag office. There was a local free racist black newspaper lying all over the counters. This is not the place for such foolishness.

PIERS MORGAN evidently doesn’t know how a guest in our country should act. For one, he doesn’t attack our Constitution. When he goes back to England, the queen should smack him on his bottom.

THE BEST-KEPT secret in North Augusta is the underperforming, outdated schools. Instead of building a baseball stadium, they should update the schools and hire better teachers and administrators.

RAVES TO SYLVIA Cooper’s Jan. 13 column. Yes, attack with all facts on Sheriff Richard Roundtree. But let’s see what all he really does, especially with the money supposedly for charities and subsidizing next year’s charity gala. Let’s see the money counts.

RANT FOR THE rude sales associates. Not feeling like spending my hard-earned money in a store where rudeness is the norm. Maybe some people don’t need to work with the public.

THIS IS A RANT against pop-top cans used for dog food, soups and other foodstuff. They cause a massive waste, since it’s impossible to get it all out like the old-fashioned cans. Imagine all the sacrifice of animals, vegetables, labor, energy and value for people too lazy to use can openers. The food companies should at least make the bottom of these cans accessible by can openers.

I AM A SOUTHERN, white woman, and I would vote for Walter Williams if he chose to run for president. More of our politicians should listen to him and live by his words.

OBAMA SAYS HE’S going to put the full weight of his office behind a gun ban. Isn’t that what bullies do: Throw their weight around?

DEMOCRATS ARE LIKE toddlers. They know if they pout, whine, and fuss long enough the Republicans will cave in. There is now no limit to what the current oppressive regime will foist upon the American people.

I JUST RECEIVED MY paycheck and it’s $40 less because Social Security taxes went up. That’s $80 more a month than what I was already paying into a program that I will never benefit from. People are getting Social Security now who have never worked or paid into it. Thanks to Congress and Obama, the working class will never get ahead!

AL GORE SELLS HIS failing, liberal TV network to, whom else, Al Jazeera. The left doesn’t even try to appear patriotic. Why do they unfailingly support our most hated enemies?

Yeh it could happen here....

Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. [...] the right of the citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.

-- Hubert H. Humphrey, 1960

Conservative radio show host on Piers Morgan

That host name is Alex Jones and He is a 911 truther who believes George Bush blew up the World Trade center and it is all a hoax So He is seen as a bit of an off kilter person. He interviewed the Obama phone lady on his radio show btw which is only on internet radio not any station

"That’s $80 more a month than what I was already paying into a program that I will never benefit from"

You are not paying that into Social Security since all of that money is now part of the big government pot to be spent as the givermint sees fit. We tried to tell everyone that any tax on the rich was just a public relations game and not enough to even make a dent. The real money is in taxing the lower and middle class. The "rich" people have all year to figure out how to hide their money but Obama got your $40 last week didn't he? He talks a good game to his Kool Aid drinkers but he knows where the real money is. While Obama was playing the shell game and using the "rich" people as the pea, his other hand was picking the lower and middle class wallets.

Don't worry about Social Security. The whole economy is going to collapse under the debt before you are eligible anyway. The givermint will probably still send you your $1000 of printed, worthless money, or whatever amount you are supposed to get.....but a loaf of bread will be $100.

Jake Tapper has left ABC and

Jake Tapper has left ABC and will begin his own show Feb 1 on CNN. Could he be replacing Morgan? Could we be so lucky.
Tapper and Ed Henry are the only two reporters who dare to ask Carney and Obama the hard questions.

The Green Jackets...

Are they changing their name to the North Augusta Green Jackets, or something else?

Outside a fifty mile radius, I doubt there are many people who know (or care) whether North Augusta is in Georgia or South Carolina anyway. Most people think West Memphis is in Tennessee, not in Arkansas. Heck, for all the public school educated students know, Arkansas and Tennessee are cities, or countries in South America anyway.

Did You Know

The State of Texas has done the same thing as NY by posting the addresses of all gun owners.

(AC doesn't allow embedding to show the map of Texas.)

It says the orange dots show the location of gun owners....Trouble is the whole map is Orange!

The Augusta Green Jackets belong in Augusta?

They may have picked a name to make the taxpayers feel closer to them.

The taxpayers may have built them a pretty stadium to play in.

The taxpayers may have purchased tickets to sit in that pretty stadium.

The taxpayers may have paid inflated prices for food and beer and tickets.

The Taxpayer may have paid for the upkeep for the stadium.

The Usual suspects may have gotten free tickets, worked out a special land deal and more$.

But the soiled child has turned its back on its benefactor, because it did not get its way or its new toy (a downtown stadium) and is Leaving or Left Town.

As a parent we all know you can't a child's real love. Baseball teams are a business, looking for bigger profits, and are no different than a soiled child.

Maybe it will make you feel better to look at it like when the GRU added Augusta to the name. The Green Jackets have just added the word "NORTH" to its.

Morgan

Call me naive but I did not even know who this P Morgan is! Read some of the rants and educated myself - problem is I never watch TV except for some decent Hallmark movies and some of the local news.
Best thing to do - don't get upset over things I can't change - doubt that this Morgan reads anything he does not like.

"... against pop-top cans..."

Get one of those rim cutter safety can openers. I got one years ago and it cuts the can through the rim rather than through the top. It will take off any of those pop-top can lids. I haven't opened a pop-top with a tab in years. A few bucks will save you a world of frustration with those stupid cans.
