THANKS TO BLOOD donors who have saved my life more than once and enabled this old lady to enjoy another Christmas.

A BIG THANKS and a rave for the young lady who paid our bill Sunday at a Furys Ferry sub sandwich shop. It would have been a big sacrifice for us to do that when we were her age. God bless you. Our country is in good hands with young people like this.

I AGREE WITH Susan McCord’s article. Augus­ta Commissioners should not receive free fuel for their automobiles. Instead, their monthly salary should be raised from $856 to $4,856.

THANK GOODNESS for President Obama. He isn’t perfect but he does have good ideas, such as the Affordable Care Act, with the good of the people in mind. Now if only the hate-filled lies spouted by the tea party and Republicans can just go slip down the gutters to the sewers. Let’s get some common sense out there who can help the people.

PRESIDENT OBAMA says he might “take further (military) action” in South Sudan, a new country that is a battlefield of “tribal rivalries.” The U.S. has no business wading into such a mudhole. Does he want us in another war?

RANT TO ALL the liberals who claim there is no war against Christians. Muslims do not tolerate gays, gay marriage, adultery, immodesty or bestiality. This is basically what Phil Robertson believes. The only difference is Phil has a different God. Yet we are forced to be tolerant of Muslims and accept their religious beliefs and we are supposed to be appalled at the Duck Dynasty patriarch’s beliefs and accept A&E’s putting him on suspension?

GLYNN MOORE, shame on you for saying there is only Christmas in December. Did your senior moment time travel forward for you to forget Kwanzaa? Wake up, man.

AREA BROADCASTERS, please do a better job of inserting local commercials into the weekend network news shows. Especially egregious has been the treatment of the Sunday programs on CBS. Local commercials run long, cutting into the news segments on the CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes programs. It’s tough sometimes to tell what the segments are about when you’re missing the first 30 seconds.

STOP FALSELY blaming Obama for stuff. He’s done a lot of positives. We are in better view of the world than the tongue-twisting antics of Cowboy George Bush. We are more respected.

"We are more respected."

I nominate that as tied for lie of the year, right alongside "if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period."

Harley, Absolutely correct.

Harley, Absolutely correct. The Saudis feel like we stabbed them in the back. Russia and Iran are filling the void left in the mid East. Libya is descending into chaos . Obama looked like an idiot doing selfies at Mendal's funeral! We have been caught spying on the German Prime Minister. The person that wrote this has the same level of understanding about world affairs as I do about quantum physics!

I think he's a good

I think he's a good President. He is a family man and does not hang out with the D.C. wild crowd. He would rather stay home with his family. Now that says a lot. Happy New Year everybody! May 2014 bring you peace and happiness.

"THANK GOODNESS for President

"THANK GOODNESS for President Obama. He isn’t perfect but he does have good ideas, such as the Affordable Care Act"

"STOP FALSELY blaming Obama for stuff. He’s done a lot of positives. We are in better view of the world"

Proof positive that if you keep your head buried in the sand for 5 years it cuts off the oxygen to your brain.

Kwannzaa is a made up holiday...

Kwannzaa is a made up holiday which has no basis other than what those who started it to mean. That being said it does have some good aspects but it is a shame more in the black community don't live by it's tenants.

Happy New Year...

….to all of the posters. I hope 2014 brings you much joy and comfort.
2013 was a good year for me and my family but I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the passing of Sarge this past year. Gone but not forgotten.
But there is much to look forward to this year with family and friends so have a great New Year as best you can.

I agree Obama is a good family man, but a good president? Like the ESPN skit on Sundays goes, come on man.

happy new year....i

happy new year....i guess.
and if anyone thinks we are respected world-wide now b/c of that person in the white house, better take off those rose-colored, glittered-encrusted, bling-enhanced shades you were given by the liberal party when you voted in 2008 and 2012, remove your head from the posterior portion of your body, try to clear the excrement floating about in your central nervous system (thus, poop for brains), put down your government-sponsored cell phone, and wake up, smell the coffee, all that jazz b/c you have been sadly led astray and deceived.

It may take a couple of years, Lilly, but as Winston Churchill once advised....

Who makes up Holidays?

Would one consider Christmas to be a made up holiday? There sure wasn't any mention of a christmas tree, Satan...oops mean SANTA, material gifts, nor yule logs in the Bible. (Spiritual texts) ...all of those previously mentioned items are all apart of the OCCULT world...

Happy Holidays!

"Kwanzaa is not BLACK holiday."

You might want to do a little research into the history and the reasons for which it was invented, when, and by whom.

Kwanzaa definitely IS a BLACK holiday. Christmas, on the other hand, is for everybody.

"Where are our statesmen of today?"

Hard to find, aren't they Lilly? There are a few. Cruz is one of them. Mostly they are hidden by the Press because their agenda isn't compatible with the left-wing's agenda.

What needs to happen is the PEOPLE need to see for themselves what these lefties are trying to do. That is made difficult by a fawning, lying, left-wing Press, but Obamacare may force their hands. It's hard to convince people it's a good idea when they see what's happening to their premiums, co-pays, deductibles, and the care they (and their families) receive.

In the end, Obamacare may well be the demise of the ultra-left agenda for a couple of decades. We need to help that happen and say our prayers...
