It seems as if we only just got the telemarketer nuisance under control, unsolicited calls from insistent salespeople peddling magazine subscriptions, time-shares, can't-miss investment opportunities, mortgage refinancing and a whole cornucopia of sucker deals. Since the telemarketers wanted to call when most people would be at home, they often called at dinnertime. Telemarketing became synonymous with "really irritating."
Editor, President Barack Obama, the Democrats and the liberal media have endorsed and encouraged the protesters currently polluting New York City and elsewhere. They are trying to compare the dirty mobs protesting Wall Street to the Tea Party rallies, which are civil and leave their venues all cleaned up. The minority leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, is proud of the rent-a-mobs, the dirty masses of hippies and union thugs trashing the streets as they broadcast their hatred of capitalism and America. They could be called the BEA party, as in "Bathed Enough Already."
Thomas David Petite has a very simple view on the immigration issue raging in the United States.
Dear editor: This letter is in response to the column regarding homosexuals in the military and the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell." While Christie Schroeder's column sounds good on the surface, showcasing her "tolerance" and "fair-mindedness," the fact is that allowing homosexuals to openly serve in the military is very wrong on many levels.
As we near our Sixth Annual Rivers Alive event on Saturday, Oct. 22, I wanted to give you an opportunity to test your own water smarts. This is an opportunity to find out just how much you know about taking care of our local waterways. This little quiz is courtesy of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Editor, I am sending you some of my suggestions on how to cut military spending. For my qualifications on this subject, I spent 21 years in the U.S. Army, plus I was a military brat before that.
Phooey - that's about the only reaction from an Atlanta Braves fan that's printable in a family newspaper after the 2011 team completed the worst September collapse ever.
Georgia's unemployment rate is at a six-month high - 10.4 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. That's more than a full percentage point higher than the national unemployment rate of 9.1 percent. All over the state, families are struggling to make ends meet. Some have to choose between paying bills and buying food.
It was 4 a.m. and I was up for the third time that night for yet another trip to the bathroom when I heard the rooster crowing.
Anyone requiring further explanation why the Georgia General Assembly adopted its own laws against illegal immigration during the last session of the General Assembly need only to consider the recent nationwide round-up by duly appointed officers with Immigrations and Custom Enforcement. Of the hundreds of nonregistered aliens taken into custody by the federally empowered agency, more than 1,600 had felony convictions.
The injection of the sleeping giant, the Savannah Morning News, into an environmental-based fray is a welcome change. I am referring to an article by none other than Tom Barton, editorial editor of that same paper.
I was born during World War II. Since then, I have seen great industrial advances inspired by American business ingenuity. In the 1940s, consumers could buy a car in any color they wanted - as long as it was black. Air-conditioning was supplied by winding down the windows. Most cars had a stick shift rather than an automatic transmission. Motorist music sources were limited to an AM radio with few stations
Every parent familiar with the noisy and chaotic, physically, mentally and emotionally demanding reality of taking care of even one or two children – which is to say, every parent – owes respect bordering on awe for those who responsibly take care of many.
Everybody needs a guru. Someone you can go to whenever you find yourself stuck on the horns of a moral dilemma. Some climb the mountain tops of Nepal to sit before an old guy wrapped in a bed sheet and listen to him prattle about inner beauty.
