EXERCISE MAY BE good for the soul but walking to the Alternative School from Hephzibah and other outlying areas is rather impractical (and possibly dangerous). The parents may need to get creative but, walking to the Alternative School is not a good option for many of the Alternative School students.

OBAMA SAYS he’s lowered taxes on the middle class. This is the first year I haven’t had to pay extra tax since he’s been in office. Just a bit of background: I’m a teacher; I’ve had nine furlough days each year he’s been in office; and I’ve paid extra federal taxes each of the previous years. Why no extra taxes this year? I had $14,000 in medical expenses during 2012. I’m getting a whopping $85 back from the federal government. Thanks, Obama. I hope our country survives until the 2014 and 2016 elections.

THANKS TO THE young man who sat by me at the Steak ‘n Shake on for paying for my lunch. I am 85 years old; and that is the first time that has ever happened to me. It was a great surprise, Thank You.

SOUTH CAROLINA’S Gowdy and Graham pretend the U.S. needs illegal immigrant laborers, so they have turned from the Constitution. Are they flipping to try to save a gutless Republican Party? For farm labor, Gowdy and Graham must end the long list of welfare programs so Americans now on the dole can gain self-respect by learning how to work – on a farm.

‘PROGRESS’ IS NOT wasting money. But GA Regents U. is blowing $1.2 MILLION to fix up two old buildings that may need some help but surely not over half a million per building while taxpayers are strapped. Is this more of the Azziz destruction plan?

OBAMA AND HIS handpicked mayor of Chicago can’t take care of that city much less the entire country!

IF OUR COMMISSIONERS really want to do something that would help our community, pass a city ordinance to make people pull up their pants. I am tired of looking at their rear ends. Make them pay a $100 fine.

I SECOND THE RANT to Georgia Internal Revenue Service. Everyone does not have a computer in order to get the forms to file Georgia tax.

TODAY I LEARNED that Saxby Chambliss and John Barrow have nothing to do with the VA Hospital. They are politicians.

I Got It!!!

What happens in Augusta during the Masters, stays in Augusta. Just let me be part of the happening. Actually, I could tell y'all lots about the Maxim party last night, but I'm not going to until y'all beg.

Those uppity Maxim folks

Those uppity Maxim folks asked me what I DID and I told them I was into timber and fishing. They thought I owned ships and thousands of acres. Little did they know, I use my Poulan chain saw on a few trees, catch a few fish and feel important when I get the dentist at Westlake to say hello to me before he turns on the drill. The thing is the women at that party were into Botox so much I couldn't tell if they were smiling or mad at what I said...and I said lots.

Somebody BIG is going to jail

Somebody BIG is going to jail next week. That's all I'm (and others) are privileged to. I kind of like it when someone important goes to jail, it reinforces my paying attention to the tax and other laws.

Sagging pants

... are good in many ways; no way to stick a gun in a sagging waistband; no way to kick, or even run, in them. As for me, I must eschew sagging britches as most of the time I 'go commando'.

No one wants to see THAT!
