I THINK IT’S GREAT that Russia is stopping the adoption of their orphans. Now maybe Americans can adopt American orphans. What is it about our orphans that no one wants to adopt and just keep on paying taxes to just have them housed as many children without true parents?

OK, CAN WE CONFISCATE or “use” the abandoned properties in the meantime? We can get low-risk parolees to cut the grass and seed it with food seeds and maybe even flower seeds and then help harvest the foods for feeding the poor through Golden Harvest Food Bank.

THE JOBS@FIRST, A NEW jobs ministry at First Baptist Church embodies what true Christianity is all about. This program helps people to prepare for getting a job and includes resumes, interviewing, and job searches. I wish that other churches would show interest in providing avenues of enhancement for their congregations.

EBT CARDS USED AT liquor stores, porn shops, gambling, etc. should be disabled or canceled. The business should be fined and/or lose the business license. This would stop it stone cold. Is our government stupid or what?

TWELVE YEARS AGO WE ended a century that saw various forms of socialism cause the deaths of possibly over 200 million people. Now American socialists are trying with all their might to take our guns away. Learn the lessons of the past.

COLUMBIA COUNTY LAW enforcement, why can’t something be done in Martinez concerning small businesses parking their company trailers on lots and property for the sole purpose of free storage and free advertising?

A RAVE FOR The Augusta Chronicle! My family and I love the History of Today section. I read it out loud every morning and then we discuss it. Even the kids enjoy and learn something.

IN RESPONSE TO THE rant about trash at the Lock & Dam Park, I ride through that park daily and I have not seen these conditions. Did the ranter think to pick up any of this trash that was scattered everywhere? Or just complain about it? After all, it is everyone’s responsibility to help keep our parks neat and clean.

RAVE FOR Home Depot for recycling Christmas trees in their parking lot in Evans and providing free mulch.

Rep. Duncan of SC is slamming Hillary hard in the House hearings. He's the toughest on her so far.

Hillary

She doesn't care. She's a short-timer. They can say she wears Army boots and it will just roll off her back. She's moving on.

KSL, I saw that...hilarious.

KSL, I saw that...hilarious. She snapped back, "What does it all matter?"

This afternoon at the House hearing, one Congressman called her on that remark she made this morning. Ha

Yes I am toying with updating my icon.

I have already had a few mistakes where I was attributed to the remarks of another user, because of a closely looking icon.

Note: this is a modified Public Domain Smiley

Power Couple

Hillary and Bill - "our leaders" - they have both embarrassed me! How does America let them stay in the game?

Not sure but...
Unpublished

Not sure what you are saying Angela, but my comment about Asians/people from the Middle East was not intended to be a "racist" comment. If you think about it, atleast they own the store...black people really do not own much here in America.

You're opening yourself up for H Angie to throw you down again - that too is a racist remark. But I understood what you said about the Asians/blacks - you're probably correct.

When I worked, EBT had 2

When I worked, EBT had 2 parts on the same card. EBT and AFDC. EBT was for food and the other was cash for non food items.I don't know if now there is a separate card for cash or not, but EBT is for food.
