GREAT IDEA, ONCE a week! Would work fine if the trash was picked up.

I THINK IT’S A great idea to have a court just for traffic ticket cases. Low-level traffic violations are no more than minor crimes, anyway.

TO THE YOUNG lady who was impatient with the older lady: Someday, that will be you and fate will set up a young person next to you that mouths off impatiently just like you did.

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT be typecast for a color anymore. I am adopted and have always had dumb people try to figure out what I must be, and that is so wrong! I was born an American, so that’s all that matters.

OUR GOVERNMENT has now gone beyond amnesty for illegal aliens. Now it is nothing less than open borders. Insanity!

MARION WILLIAMS’ veranda idea for downtown is great, but thugs will be the only ones enjoying it. It’s better to spend taxpayer money to put an extensive camera system all over downtown to find out who is committing these crimes and take out the trash before spending taxpayer money for a beautiful thug playground.

I THINK MR. Williams needs to think back inside the existing box and come up with means to clean up and secure Broad Street as we know it today. We cannot find ways to maintain and secure what we have today or settle parking issues.

EVERY MONTH 5,000 people in Syria are killed. That means that more than the entire population of Millen, Ga., is slaughtered each month.

BOO TO THE creep(s) who bothered the Woodrow Wilson home. Anyone who cannot respect a museum lacks morals below that of worm dirt.

OUR FEDERAL government refuses to profile people from the Middle East when looking for potential terrorists because it would be a violation of our Constitution. However, it proceeds to gather Americans’ private information from every source on every American. Does anyone else see a disconnect here?

Last Rant!

Does anyone else see a disconnect here?

I Don't.....

I realize who we have as a leader .. The King SMNCICBHO(M), The Hammer & Sickle Man.

That is the answer and all you need to know. So why would you be confused by it?

Paula Deen

Thank goodness there are no posts for Paula the "scheme" Deen. Using her fake southern accent to lure more sympathy from the unwitting souls. Go away. Cry all the way to the bank you fake!!

#7

:-)

Rave to #7. It is high time to think back inside the box. Let's get our roads and our sewer pipes repaired. We don't need no stinkin’ veranda.

Let’s write honest bid specifications for things our government really needs and let’s award the contract to the lowest bidder, whether it promises all sorts of minority set asides or not.

Let’s stop collecting all sorts of race-based statistics in our school system just because a federal judge back in the 1970s said we had to. And let’s let the people whose jobs it was to collect those statistics go and find useful work.

Let’s let arts organizations get their money from voluntary contributions and voluntary ticket sales instead of tapping taxpayers involuntarily.

Let’s let citizens contract with private garbage haulers to pick up at the frequency desired at market prices. Come to think of it, why not let citizens purchase their medical services the same way?

Very Veranda

Have your convention at the TEE Center in Augusta, Georgia. Come enjoy our Riverwalk and Veranda on Broad St. Realistic shootouts performed below the veranda on First Fridays.

Things are too Hot for Obama in the USA,

so he is flying around getting touch with his roots in Africa.

Other than a location this is a trick commonly used but WH handlers to distance the President from the aggressive members of the press.

Remember only the most LOYAL Press Members get to fly with him on AF-1 or the WH Press Jet.

When people stop using the hyphenated-American label, maybe they won't be typecast!!

Extensive Cameras

Cameras can't see through hoodies and ball caps worn low on the brow. The only thing that will work is what all the other cities do, boots on the ground!!!

Why is it.....

Why are all the national news outlets in NYC....they don't have a clue about the south & our true feelings....why is it we don't have a unit in the south?
Think about it..the news is slanted everyday with THEIR opinions....gun laws....especially -----we need an outfit in the south....we could call it the BUBBA Channel...letters could be just BUB....like nbc--abc--cbs....I noticed the huge difference during this Deen debacle.....if I could have reached into the tv I would have slapped the grits ut of a few tv anchors...

Maybe we need this

Instead of all the fencing $$$ going south of Texas...maybe we could save a few million & put the fence on the Mason-Dixon line....everything they plan for us has caused us a heap of trouble.

Usually they have to reverse it after so many years but look at the mess we endure.....couldn't we pull away & have our own USA.....North USA & South USA.......yeehaw!

If convenience stores wanted to catch robbers they would mount a
12GA shotgun in a way to blow the legs off the robber by the cash register. Like the Beacon Truck Stop on US-25 in the 60's & 70's did.

Just a little hole in front of the register with a Beer poster over it, knee to waist high aimed downward in the right direction.

Or at least mount a Sony 1/3 " Effio with 600-720 TV Lines resolution with 3.2mm lens, looking up from the cash register in a similar spot.

BTW: DON'T display the video on the Public Store and /Customer LCD Screen.

RE: 0840am

Totally agree with the video cam; I cannot number the many times a news outlet has shown a clip taken from store cameras that could be anyone, black, white, indifferent because of less than camera phone quality. On a recent clip I could have sworn it was our President, but he doesn't steal or rob us- he has Congress for that.

As to the shotgun idea, though it might deter at least one or two, the resulting lawsuits --used as fundraising events by the the doofus duo of reverends and local fellow travelers-- would bankrupt any chain, much less any mom & pop operation.

"...We can not police the muslim world..."

We can't even police our own. Nidal Hasan, the murder of Fort Hood infamy has yet to stand trial... why not? Perhaps if it's stretched out enough, The One may pardon him on His last day in office as a gesture to the muslim world?

"ONCE a week! Would work fine

"ONCE a week! Would work fine if the trash was picked up."

AND IF WE GOT IT FOR A FAIR PRICE. We were robbed by 6 commissioners and an administrator who were building in a profit revenue stream, paying for Mark Johnson's CNG empire, and still covering the "old city" subsidy paid for by suburban and rural property tax payers.

ONCE A WEEK SERVICE DESERVES A ONCE A WEEK PRICE. It should be considerably LESS than what we were paying for TWICE A WEEK SERVICE.
