YOU HAVE to admire the Israelis since they mean what they say. They have taken decisive action after their “red line” was crossed. In January and again recently they have performed airstrikes in Syria on weapons shipments bound for Hezbollah. Good for them!

TO THE 82-YEAR-OLD in the wheelchair: The unfortunate tendency to lawsuits makes it impossible for some extra services to be done off premises, so I suspect that is the reason why MCG can no longer send someone out to the parking lot for you. Someone needs to help transport you at least far enough into the hospital or doctor’s office and to get you out, too.

WHAT IS GOING ON in Syria is none of our business. It’s time to bring our troops home and put America first.

MORE THAN $280,000 worth of things that GRU President Ricardo Azziz did to the home without approval? That money could have helped out some little bit for the low-paid staff with no raises for several years.

RAVE FOR THE WORK of Operation Thunder in cutting down on drunk drivers. Now, if they can only roll one out for downtown a bit to catch the crooks who are attacking people out there at least two days in a row.

LOOK, BAR OWNERS, if cuts in your alcohol sales mean fewer drunk drivers, you will have to live with that. Either that or have a better system with the taxis or other services to have someone drive the drunks home.

OPERATION ROLLING Thunder ... Though catching DUIs, drug abusers is a good thing, I got caught up in it. I’m a senior citizen living on a fixed income and a careful driver. I see in Sunday’s paper many people got warnings while I got a speeding ticket. I wonder why this is? Since I got the ticket I’ve been trying to find out how much this operation cost me but no one has been able to tell me. I have provided the citation number and my driver’s license and no one has a record for it. What’s up with this mess? I am trying to budget to pay this thing.

DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA does not need a bus to take Fort Gordon soldiers to the bars on Friday and Saturday nights. What downtown needs is more police patrolling the streets.

Press Release

For immediate release: A wildly, enthusiastic crowd is expected tomorrow morning to protest the visit of University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckabee to the Savannah River Pavilion for a Columbia County Chamber of Commerce breakfast. Signs voicing displeasure with GRU president Ricardo Azziz will be prominently displayed. Save the A signs will be carried by many. For those without transportation we are looking into renting the GRU shuttle bus to give everyone a ride. We will also be asking GRU police officers to donate their time to provide security.

Seen it, Riverman: stranger

Seen it, Riverman: stranger things have happened. Do you guys know her (or him) ? Is she a she or he? How old? What does she (or he) look like? Could we be soul mates? I just had a fantasy that we had a robust discussion before making love.

But that is how it starts

First they pick at each other
Then they squabble some
Then they nit pick each other
Then they nibble a little bit
Then they start to like each other
Then they miss the attention
Then they fall MADLY IN LOVE!!!!

Just like I have with countyman...lol

SeenitB4: thanks for being my

SeenitB4: thanks for being my friend on this, the AC comment forum. I have tried to express my opinion on here, only to be shut down and erased by "offended" people. But when you have something to say on here my ears are wide open--always common sense and from a southern prospective. The greatest people who exhibit the most humaness and kindness are from the American South. I will never change anyone's mind but the truth today is that on Tuesday May 14th, 2013, the giants are in first place in the NL West! The greatest team in sports, with the greatest front office from the manager to the owners. Too bad the sorry leadership in Augusta is going to lose the Giants single A club because Augusta's leadership is too stupid to know any better. SeenitB4: if you and I ever meet up, I will take you to a game at AT&T park. AT&T Park is Sacred ground. It's real. More real than any made up place in the bible.

NA stadium

The meeting tonight is with the school board. Try to get them to sign off on the tax exemption for the property. I think the correct term is TIF.

Notice something today.Those

Notice something today.

Those with conservative views debate the concept or idea presented that they disagree with.

Those with liberal viewpoints attack, or ridicule the person but not the validity of the response.

I guess if you don't like the message, just shoot the messenger.

Welcome to the world of liberals versus conservatives. Whether they realize it or not, the libs/progressives who are intelligent enough to debate, practice Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. They have absorbed the lib politicians and media's talking points.
