TO THE LADY IN SCRUBS sitting in the car sucking sauce from the chicken wings and tossing each greasy bone out of her window, please be considerate of others. Use the trash can. Think of the people who track it into their vehicles and the animals this attracts into an area where there are many moving vehicles.

A TRUE LEADER WOULD have said, “I messed up,” rather than “we” or “My team and I.” The inability to own up to mistakes must be one of those liberal, elitist traits.

ANY STUDENT THINKING of going to college, don’t believe any slick marketing material you receive in the mail. Get in your car, drive to the college, talk to real students to find out.

WHY IS CONGRESS getting the blame for problems they don’t create?

HERE IS A NOVEL IDEA: Deport all 11 million illegal immigrants. Then maybe we will have enough jobs for our unemployed legal citizens and the unemployment rate will drop significantly.

TRAVIS ON CHANNEL 12, please talk loud enough so we can understand you.

THE YOUNG LADY MAULED BY by a lion in California was talking on her cellphone while cleaning the lion’s cage. Is it possible that she might still be alive today if she had been paying attention?

TO THOSE SO INCLINED, be aware. Road rage is a psychiatric disorder and those convicted might find themselves in a loony bin. Aggressive driving is a criminal offense and those convicted might find themselves in a jail cell.

SO, IF THE AUGUSTA COMMISSION has to hold work sessions, what does it do the other days it meets?

I WAS WATCHING THEM sell shoes on QVC tonight. I have never seen so many beautiful women with such big feet. What’s going on?

ONCE AGAIN, TRYING TO legislate stupidity instead of taking care of something that really matters. Keep right.

IT IS INSULTING TO the minority community in the area to suggest that moving voting from November to July would disenfranchise their voting rights. It makes it appear the individuals lack the motivation to make it to the polling places at any time other than November.

@harley

You are exactly right with your concept but you know as well as I do that the current situation is all about taxing and spending/giving away!!!! It is so sad that sending checks each month to those who do not deserve them. A lot of these people have NEVER put anything into the government's bank accounts but they feel that they "deserve" to get something/money out! If we don't get rid of Obama and the liberals we as a nation will continue to go down the toilet! Wish you and I could run the programs for awhile. :)

Also, I do not have any problem with legal immigrants! They make up the backbone/manual labor of our nation. Projects would not be completed without them!

Cyprus

Hey, did any of you hear that in order for the government of Cyprus to get a European Union bail-out, they had to take a one-time tax of "up-to" (means-tested) ten percent on the balances in their bank accounts. That sounds like something Barak Obama would like to try here.

thoughts...

(1) People have no class anymore. Throwing food out of the windows, opening their car doors and spitting in the street, talking on their phones in church, kids bumping into you with no "excuse me"...will we ever go back to having some simple manners?
(2) Honestly, if a college, including the Medical College of Georgia (no GRU for me!), would save their money that they are spending on all of those mailings, they could cut down on the cost of the tuition and other expenses! We have received so many notices from schools that are totally unnecessary. If we haven't responded yet, then drop us from the list!
(3) Haven't noticed the volume of the newscasters but the volume and number of commercials is pretty bad.
(4) Comments like "loony bin" and making light of psychiatric issues does nothing for the mentlly ill. The fact is, again, there are many people who feel entitled to run you off the road, look the other way as they drive into your path, and otherwise act like they are the best drivers ever.
(5) Now someone is saying that minorities are insulted because they are thought to be unmotivated to vote in the summer? Heck, a lot of folks don't get out to vote then, no matter what color, and that's how a lot of these officials got in. Surprised there was no comment about the identification needed to vote. If you are a good citizen, again regardless of race, you would want to be certain that no one is using your name to vote.
